  • They can ask if you were found suitable or not. The CBP Investigator can tell them that much...that is whether you were found suitable or not. If you are found unsuitable, they can't tell them why you were found unsuitable.

Anyways, they will also ask you if you have been in another background investigation and will ask for the contact info for your background investigator, so your FD investigator can and probably will talk to your CBP investigator, which shouldn't matter because you don't plan to give different info right?
        okay thanks. no i dont plan to give different answers, i was just curious. for the info on my investigator, ive never been contacted by one so i would not have the info ready.

        • I got an email from Scheduling branch and they stated "Classes are still being finalized for the rest of FY13, based on the needs of the service" , that does not sound good for any classes in the near future.

            To me it sounds like at least they're going to have classes in 2013, how soon? who knows... here's to praying that it is very soon. But, hey! At least you're getting info from them, I haven't heard a peep Probably because you have already received the call before.

              You are right the only reason I heard something from them was because my 30 days was up and I was added back into the hiring pool. It in a nut shell they said I will be getting another call but they cannot tell me when due to the class schedule for the remaining of the year has not been set. I knew that declining the first offer was a gamble but I am really second guessing myself now.

                Ultimately, as with any decision, you have to do what is best for you and your family and that is exactly what you did. That my friend, will never be a wrong decision in my book. For all you know, the next call might be at the port that you need. If it still isn't the one that you need, at the very least, waiting around for the call has helped to give you perspective on making a decision, and at that point, it will be an easier decision to make I think.

                • I'll bet we'll see roughly 2 classes each month for the rest of the fiscal year.

                  Now, if something major comes along and blows things up...say, another sequestration, the "fiscal cliff", Obama and/or the Republicans refusing to moderate and deal with the debt ceiling, or a like event...well then, all bets are off.

                      I'm not sure what you're looking for.

                      The days of hiring nearly 3000 people a year have passed, at least for the foreseeable future. On the other hand, so are the days of hiring less than 200. Baring major change, hiring 800-1200 each year is probably going to be the new norm for a while.

                        • Good Morning Everyone, was checking CASS before heading to the gym to box and run for a bit and my Background went green, eff yeah. Now I just need to get a frigging drug test done.

                            Its strange now that many peoples backgrounds clear now before they take a drug test. Used to be the other way around..lol
