    I was at Dulles airport last week and talk to one of the CBPOs there and was told that they really need people at that location. Maybe you will clear everything and end up working there?

    ForzaMilan, I'm a 27 y/o male applicant. I heard in another forum that they also needed people around the Norfolk VA area as well.

      I don't think there is any way you get called for the Jan. 13th class. There are probably thousands of applicants that tested before you, are farther along in the process than you, and have a SW border preference. Just keeping it real, not trying to rain on your parade. Good luck to you.

        When is the class after that? July?

        • Hey guys, do you know a number I can call regarding my polygraph results? It's been two weeks since I took it and I haven't been notified. They didn't tell me if I passed or failed after I took the polygraph. They just told me I might need further testing and that they were going to send the results to get them reviewed and to check cass daily. So I really don't know what to think because most of the guys that took a polygraph get notified at the spot. Should I call the hiring center or just wait?

          Thank you in advance

              Ya sorry to say I'd have to agree with azactus42, the line for the poly and BI is tremendous. I assume since just about every applicant is in line for it at this exact moment. Although in this process stranger things have happened, so you never know. I can tell you from experience don't get to riled up with this process bc it will drive you nuts. Just hit the gym and keep your eyes open for emails regarding CBP steps and go on with your life. It's the best advice I can give you. Just take a look at my timeline and how long I've been waiting. Im sure your process will not take as long as mine. i was just unlucky and have a lot of family outside the US that definitely slowed down my process. It was also unfortunate I wasn't called earlier for a poly, now I'm in a long line waiting with everybody else. Granted everybody is different, but if you haven't taken the poly yet I'd say your chances aren't good for January. The next class could be a week after the first January class or a month later. It all depends on the needs of CBP. Although I do expect the classes to be often not months apart.

              • fingers crossed for January class, today just got my bi and poly finally cleared took about month and half for poly and took my background last august yes 2011!! took a year to get my poly scheduled.

                anyone else in the position i am in if so how long did it take to get call from when you received your last check mark? Im so excited when i saw that check today but like everyone else getting all riled up for a check mark isnt best idea seeing excitement gets killed with months of waiting for next step to begin.

                • Just a heads up read on Delphi that the guy that just got the call for Detroit didn't take a poly. I thought everybody had to after August? I mean heard of a few slipping through right before the August self imposed deadline of switching to mandatory, but this is months after that. Just goes to show you this process is completely unpredictable! I guess IA and MHC don't necessarily need everybody to take the poly till the official 2013 deadline.

                        I doubt that.

                        Last year they hired roughly 1300 people and held classes roughly every two weeks.

                        This year, keeping up with an attrition rate of roughly 4%, they'd need to hire roughly 800 people. With 48 trainees to a class, that's roughly 17 classes. Mid-January to the end of FY13(Sept. 30th) is roughly 34 weeks.

                        17 classes spaced out over 34 weeks is roughly a class every two weeks.

                        Of course, that's just a WAG, but it's more or less a SWAG.

                        Now throw in what might be an impending sequestration and hiring freeze and all guesses get tossed out the window. Most anything potentially goes at that point.

                              As I said...that's a guess based on keeping pace with attrition.
                              Once things move along in the new FY I would expect more of the current hiring plan to be revealed.
