  • How intrusive is the CBP poly? Or maybe 'intrusive' is the wrong term. All these posts are starting to make me nervous again. Has anyone here ever taken a poly exam for another agency, and if so, how did it compare to the CBP? I'm just curious if it'll be as difficult as the one I took for the USSS.

      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.
      Sorry to hear this - I'm in the same boat. I was told I failed, interrogated for 45 minutes for a confession of a "serious offense" that doesn't exist, and sent on my way. I didn't change any of my answers and stuck to all the truthful answers on my sf86 - but the guy didn't seem to believe me. I don't know if it was a tactic or if I actually did fail - just don't know what to think about it. I hope you make it! Keep us posted

        Mine wasn't "intrusive" in the sense that they asked inappropriate questions about sexual things, etc. Just standard suitability questions. I've never had a poly before this one so i don't have anything to compare it to, sorry.

              • I got the call yesterday (3/26/14). I live in Florida and applied to the Florida region. I accepted a spot in Orlando and was told it was the last Orlando position. She also offered a position Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

                My EOD date is May 5, 2014 and the academy is June 2 - October 6, 2014.

                I have been looking over this forum for the past 2 years while processing with CBP and didnt really post anything.

                Any one else out there with the same academy dates and/or Orlando duty station?

                Good luck to everyone.

                  • What score did you get on the written? I have changed my geo twice because the FL region just wouldn't go through for me. I got a 90, which is too low for FL I believe.

                    I see a few of you have gotten calls within the past few days. I hope I'm next. I already did everything; just waiting on the pft2 and pre-academy call.

                    • I just took my pft1 a couple days ago and took the VBT last month and passed. What would be the next phase for me? I would think drug test and background check but I don't know for sure.

                      Can anyone fill me in how long the background investigation usually takes?

                          Next phase is medical.

                          Background investigation depends on your background. How many references you listed. How many times you moved. All previous employment. They have to meet in person with all those I just mentioned. It took month and a half for my background to clear.

                          • But at the same time they don't go in order. For some next phase could be drug test for some backgrounds.

                              There's another medical? Besides the medical/pft1?
