  • OK, I am going to use this forum to vent only because I think that this is the most appropriate place to do it. Everyone else don't understand the struggle. The first time I found out about this job, I was excited to take the test. I had to wait to take the test for years because of the hiring freeze. I finally got an opportunity to take the test in November 2011 and passed with a 85. I waited for CBP to call me for years with no luck. I finally gave up and left my current government job of six years because it did not pay good. As soon as I left to go to my new LE job, CBP calls me to start the process. I had to delay a few steps in the process because my new job did not want to give me the time off. when I finally got the call to take the polygraph, I couldn't take it because of my medical condition. Now that I am cleared, I have not received a call to take the polygraph. There were many other things that I have done to keep myself in the process but it will be way too long to explain.lol. Now I am at a job that i HATE and I regret leaving my last job. I am dying for a phone call because I feel like i am going to quit my job (yea, its that bad). Reading this forum keeps me going because it let me know that i am not the only one that has problems. STRESSED.
    PS. I don't want this job because of the money, my current job pays way more. I found out the hard way, money is not everything.

      How long have you been gone from the federal job? I ask, because you may have reinstatement eligibility. Did you leave the last gov job on good terms?
      I believe that CBP would be a better job because at my last job I did something very close to CBP duties. I have also worked along side them to see what they actually do. Everyone that I know on the job loves it. I have been gone from my federal job for about a year now. I left my job on great terms. I was even about to get promoted again.

      • Just received a call and email to schedule for med exam. It was an automated voice. I'm guessing this is the pft1 and med?

        Comprehensive health service was in the email.

                Really? I wonder why so soon. I'd figure at least a week or two.

                  • Could you have scheduled it at a later date or was tomorrow or Wednesday the only available option?

                      • Oh, then nevermind. I'll try and schedule mine a week in advance, preferably next Wednesday. I don't even know where it'll be administered. I live near Tampa, Fl, so I'm hoping it's around the area.

                          So the PFT1 comes first. Push ups, sit ups, side steps, lift/lower tests I'll score damn near perfect. Maybe I'll practice with the lift/lower test. The step test I'm going to do a few times a week. I did a few minutes non-stop on my couch, which sucked, because of how soft the pillow is and your feet sinking in, but I wasn't too terribly winded.

                          EDIT-Can anyone give a general time frame for when you receive an email stating to take the PFT1 and the PFT1 test date? Is it at least a couple of weeks until the test date?

                          Also, I live in Florida. I'm curious if it's just the PFT2 that's held in Miami, or is the PFT1 also held in Miami, too. I live near Tampa, FL, and I know my VBT will be held there.

                          Thank you
                          You usually have 2-3 weeks (depending on how long it takes you to get through) to take your PFT1 from the time you receive the e-mail. Good luck!!

                              5 Information required in items 6b and 8b use V (vehicle); B (boat); A (airplane) and O (other).
