I love visiting watch sites and reading up on news, pictures, videos, reviews, etc. I'm amazed at all of those little gears and motors moving in harmony. My priority if I do get this job will be to start investing in my retirement. I'm going to be 32, and I have no money saved. This is why I need this job.

          And I wouldn't dare buy a new watch for $4,000. I can find one used for half the price and pay no taxes. That's the smart way to go. And plus, wearing the watch will make me feel like James Bond as a CBP officer.
          You could do worse than having a watch addiction as a vice.

          Myself, I think the "best" watch I ever owned was a clearance-priced 5.11 watch from LApolicegear. $150 retail reduced to $15. Even at $15, it was more than I usually pay for a watch...but I needed something more "dressy" than my usual to wear to various TDY's, training sessions, meetings, and the like.

          Usually, I'm a $5-$10 dollar Walmart/Target/KMart clearance watch guy. At the moment, I'm sporting a $4.98 Armitron than I picked up at Target for 75% off.

          • ^There's no way I'd wear a $4,000 watch to work as a CBP officer. I'm sure there are CBP officers that do, lol.

            And I received a green check for fitness on CASS! Med is still pending.

            • Sent my eqip in a week and a half ago and haven't heard anything. How long until I'm contacted my a background investigator? Good luck to everyone just beginning the process.

              Edit: Just checked cass and it's in the security office.

                How long after your medical and ptf did it take to get your eqip? I've sent it in before for another dhs job, does that matter at all?

                • Thats the trick trying to get you to change your mind on a question. Once you answer the question stick to it and dont change the answer

                  • Just took my polygraph today and sadly I failed. I have waited years for this job and I am devastated. I never done anything bad in my life and was told today that I was involved in some serious activity, drugs and more. All of the questions that she asked me and on the sf86 I was truthful. I wanted to get everything off my back so that I can relax in the chair. I am so depressed over it and hope that it doesn't mess up my future employment. I hear people on here say that if you change your answer then you fail. What happens when you are told that you fail before you get a chance to explain yourself? Have anyone ever been told that they failed later to find out that they passed because of a test tactic? Can I fight it in any way? Please help.

                    • I found out today I passed the interview process. I guess the background investigation is next.

                            • So finally got my green check next to Structured Interview and VBT. I also got a call from my boss telling me that he got a call from the Background Investigator yesterday to set up an appointment with him. Took the VBT on 3/10/14, so 15 days until green check mark showed up on CASS. All that's left is for the background to finish up, Poly is already done.

                                Uhmm I was in previous announcement for southwest boarder. Took me roughly a year to get offers. Declined both offers for southwest and was told to reapply. Reapplied in august of 2013 for west coast, all I had to redo was pft1. Everything else was used from previous announcement.
