    Took me 4 years to get the job... You need to be patient with this process, no rhyme or rhythm... It just goes different for everyone. I've seen people hired in 3-6 months... And thre are those like me, that waited years to get it... While I wa at FLETC there was a guy that waited 7 years, then he got injured at the academy... No more job for him.
    Keep trucking along as if you never applied, do what they ask when they call or send you stuff, and NEVER pass up an opportunity because you're waiting for CBP.

    Best of Luck...

    • Does anyone have the IA fax number where you fax in your NOPA response? The fax number they gave me doesn't work, and they haven't responded to my email requesting a working number yet. I'm worried that if I mail it in at this point it won't be there on time.

        USPS and FedEx offer overnight services. It's like $20.

                        • Well I finally got in contact with IA after being told two weeks ago that my BI should be complete by last week. I pessimistically said then that I'd believe it when I see it. Guess I was correct to doubt IA. I was told today the same thing I've always been told, that it is still waiting on the their supervisors finally review. Really wish I could find out either way. I have a feeling that my BI will eventually have to be scrapped and started all over again, which is a wonderful thought. In a week or so I'm going to send an email to my BI rep. She told me to reach out to her if nothing happens in the next three months. She stated that she would then speak to IA to find out what is the hold up, I'm sure my email to her will also lead me to nowhere. It gets harder and harder to stay positive here.

                            do you think it's taking longer than other applicants due to the fact that you applied to other law enforcement positions as well? perhaps OPM or IA is waiting for your background conducted by other agencies? I'm just saying because I am also waiting for my background to finish, it's been awhile.

                              I never thought about that, but I doubt it. I had been waiting almost two years before I even took another exam. I had everything else cleared minus the poly as it was not mandatory when I applied and that was before I even thought about other Positions. BI's are very unpredictable hard to say who's will be done quicker, I was just delt this hand and have to ride it out. I know Yoda waited even longer and he had to start his BI all over again bc it took so long. They scrapped his first one and started a new one and I have a feeling that is what is going to happen to mine.

                              • I have a question regarding GS-5. I am a bit confused whether I qualify for GS-5.

                                I have 89.5 Semester Units at community college
                                Earned my Associates degree

                                I've been a volunteer at the local sheriffs department as Citizen On Patrol(similar to Auxiliary) for 1.5 years. I do a minimum of 8 hours a month sometimes more.

                                I worked at Staples Retail store for about 1.4 years doing around 15-30 hours a week (Part time) depending on the season. I left in good terms for the current job i have now.

                                I currently now work at a private prison as a correctional officer. I've been here a month now working full time with a lot of overtime.

                                I plan to apply to multiple law enforcement agencies next year. I've been looking into CBP and BPA, but i'm a bit confused if i meet GS-5.

                                If anyone could help me, i'd greatly appreciate it.
