  • Hi all,

    I'm on a very odd path to say the least....

    I took my medical/PFT1 back in late September. Received a NOPA for drug use also in late September and assumed I was dead in the water. I replied back and looks like I have successfully cleared that hurdle, as my qual's, pre-employment forms and PFT1 have gone green since then.

    I now have a VBT/SI scheduled for November 26th and also a polygraph scheduled for December 4th before I've even taken the VBT.
    GEO: Northeast
    Test: 12/16/10 (in PA)
    NOR: 1/25/10 (90 - no vet pref.)
    TSL1: 8/29/12
    TSL2: 8/31/12
    E-QIP: Submitted 9/6/12 (Fingerprints sent 9/14/12)
    PFT1: 9/26/12 (Cleared)
    Medical: 9/26/12 (Cleared)
    VBT / SI: 11/26/12 (Cleared)
    BI: At Security Office
    Poly: 12/4/12 (Scheduled) - failed..
    Drug Test: Not Scheduled
    PFT2: Not Scheduled

    • I saw someone post previously that there was some kind of narrated test as if you were taking it at the site. It's cool ForzaMilan, we are the Dept. of the Navy...The MEN'S DEPT!!

            • I still cannot believe that my background has not cleared yet or even been contacted by an investigator to see if anything has changed when I have a cleared background from Nov 6, 2011 in their system. I am truly thinking about giving up on CBP and going with the local police department. I am just frustrated.

              • What if you send them an email and ask them if there is anything you can do to help them expedite the final process? It probably wont do much good but at the very least it serves as a polite way of reminding them to hurry their asses up lol.

                  Hey majere, this is the link:http://nemo.cbp.gov/obp/narrated.mp3 (only audio) for the general instructions of the test and full 5 mins step test. I was doing it everyday, until the day before my test. I sent the link to my email and when I was at the gym I listened to it while doing the step test, since its the exact same one when you take the real test, you wont have not problems at all. Good luck!

                    • Thanks EASF! That was what I was looking for. I am starting the next couple days with a 8" step because that is all I could find, then add the other 4'' Tuesday.

                      • Does anyone know how long the polygraph results are valid? Do they expire after 2 years?

                          I haven't heard anything. On duty or off duty?
                          Natural selection leaves the survivors stronger and better! Humans have escaped this winnowing for far too long!

                          • LOD, Marfa Sector.

                            Last I read there wasn't anything overtly suspicious surrounding his death.

                            • I feel for u guys! Talking about 2 and 3 poly sessions and waiting for years to get hired! You guys probably don't want to hear this but I am glad CBP is getting quality over quantity! Like some 9/11 quick hires, don't get me wrong some do a great job but some are there just for a paycheck! I'm also glad for the age restriction, again don't get me wrong I've worked with ole retired gunny sergeants and navy seals that would work circles around people! Don't get discouraged and be patient, let them call u terrorists, tell the truth an you shouldn't have any problems. Just have to wait for the greenbacks!!
