  • I got offered Chicago today, I feel really selfish for crying because I know many of you were like me (just yesterday) dying for the call. I need some words of encouragement, having hard time leaving my family! This is going to change my life so much!

      Hey Valross! Thanks for letting me know, I am really glad to meet someone who shares the same GEO! We may even end up in the same training class in Georgia (with other applicants who share similar timeline). So how was your VBT, I bet you nailed it! and good luck on your pre-employment process!
      Thanks S.O.S.! I actually didn't feel great about the VBT. It was kind of awkward and strange talking to a TV, but I got through it alright. Also, I did have my SI afterward so that's a good sign, and I felt very good about that part. Just gotta wait for that green check now Good luck to you as well!

      • Thanks mole and s.o.s. I read the link regarding bi and poly...And I dont agree with past alcohol abuse being grounds for DQ because alcohol is made legal by the us government and it is known to be addicting. Illegal drugs i can understand but not alcohol.

            • Hey guys, I just received a letter from equifax today stating that "we furnished a copy of your credit file for employment purposes.". I was just wondering if anyone knows if this means that my BI has begun even though I haven't met with my investigator. Also, a co-worker of mine had a Poly a few days ago and he was told that they are expediting vets for an October class...grain of salt of course...

                  I recommend you to start slow. Do this and u will be doing less than 15 in no time. Start running your 1.5 miles as fast as you can to see where u standing. For the next week or two do 2 1/2 min running and walk 1 min. Do that for a least 2 miles or 25 min a day(at least 5 days a week) then increase your running time( 4 min)but for now your walking time stays in 1 min... Do that for 2 more weeks. After those 3-4 weeks do the 1.5 miles and check your time again. Remember you can do as many push ups and sit ups but at the end of the day the run is the one that counts. 98% that fail the pft2 is in the 1.5miles. And yes you will have to let the weights go for couple days so you get lighter..

                    Your BI starts way before you meet the Investigator.

                      i dont see why they would even say they are expediting vets for October. We still got to go through the whole process. I am a vet and am just waiting on my Poly to clear. It would be great though if true, but i doubt it.

                        would you trust anyone with a firearm to have your back with a history of alcohol abuse? (of course i'm referring to situations i hope will never encounter, but it may happen.)

                          Hey, Congrats lang2! You have been waiting for this offer ever since 2010, so you deserve a cry and I don't even think that's enough to express the moment lol! I can feel you! Your family will understand, you have a bright future ahead of you now man! and I am sure leaving your family is hard, but this job can shape you into a totally different person which by the time you go back to your family they will be proud of you!!

                          For many of us who have applied this position and dying waiting for the (LAST) green checks or the call to come, the waiting might be dreadful and sometimes even hopeless but lang2 has shown us that as long as we do not give up the job process, the job will not give up us! So keep your head up and !!

                              They'll give you Tues. the 25th off. They might give you Mon. the 24th off...and they might not.
                              Either way if you're planing to travel any distance away from FLETC you might run into issues... like insurmountable issues.

                                Yes i would trust that person. A history of alcohol abuse would have no effect on ones safety with a gun.
