    From my personal experience, I always get help from MHC and Have never personally spoken to IA in person, always a voicemail on their end. If its about the poly, it took about 7 weeks for my results, mind that I took my very first one just 3 weeks before I had a retake

        • Hey guys my name is Albert V, from El Paso, Texas.
          been researching here for a while and now I have decided to join the conversation.
          and unfortunately join the wait...I look forward to learning more about the process
          and share any information that we all can benefit from!

          Good luck to all applicants on here and may we join the CBP and the academy sooner than later!

          My timeline so far:

          • I've noticed an influx of folks on the boards who are either unsatisfied with the job, or basically have nothing good to say about it. (Could it be trolls? Who knows?) All I can say is, I'm being paid to learn all kinds of things, including how to speak Spanish. Not many careers out there can say that. I've done a whole lot worse for a whole lot less. To anybody on these boards who is waiting to get in, don't let the trolls feed your perception of CBP. Form your own opinion, based on your own experiences. No job is perfect, no port is perfect. Just make sure you join this agency with the right intentions. Work hard, and if you find that it does not suit you, keep working hard until you find your dream gig as an 1811...

              Just wanted to drop my timeline for any of those who are in a similar boat.

              Geo: East Coast
              Written exam: 8/2011
              NOR: 9/2011
              TSL 1: 5/2012
              TSL 2: 8/2012
              Med-PFT1: 10/2012 passed
              VBT-SI: 11/2012 passed
              Poly: 12/2012 passed
              BI: 1/2013 passed
              EOD 3/2013
              FLETC 4/2013

              BI was pretty quick and painless. The reference checks were annoying, but I guess that all comes with Territory.

              I still have to take the PFT2, but for other places I had to do the cooper standard's test and I don't have any reservations on not passing the PFT2.

                    I'm not sure on the timeline, maybe a month or less. I was so bogged down with work and I was actually going to work elsewhere, then bam, IA, BI, and contingent offer.

                    Maybe at most, at two weeks. They were super quick. I received an email that they wanted my release for background investigation and my investigator contacted me within two days. I think what helped in my particular case is that I already have some law enforcement experience and a really clean record.
                    As with everything, your mileage will vary. I know someone who took the test around my same slot and stalled in the middle for the SWB geo.

                        Sure, not a problem. I had the option of JFK, Newark, or Dulles.
                        I went with Dulles.

                              They take their time with things, but when they need something from you they want it yesterday. So be patient and also have backups just in case.
