      I'm in for the West Coast, and the only time I changed location was through email when they closed Florida and I had to pick a new location.

      Anyone have any new information on West Coast vacancies? Is McCarron airport still looking for more?

        After the poly is when they start meeting your references, co-workers right?
        Awesome, you are couple weeks away. Focus on this step as it is "the" most important step to pass, it is the top of the hill for every applicant. Be ready, honest, professional, and dress for success. Let us know if you have any Qs and best of luck
        How long it was since you submitted your SF-86? You gotta timeline to post?

        • I hope I don't have to wait another 3 months for my poly, like with VBT/SI. After my VBT/SI, it was only a week until I received my equip. Things started to move quick.

            I wouldn't recommended spending your hard earned money on a passbook. The passbook is full of grammatical errors and useless information. Download or print out the study guide from the CBP website. Make sure that you brush up on your math and that you complete all of the practice tests. That's how I passed.

            Good luck.

                  my background went green days after I passed my poly. I had my BI done a few years ago when I applied initially in 12'

                  • Okay thanks anyway. Does anyone else have times on going green after your BI passes your investigation in?

                      Thanks, and yeah this part is easily the hardest part. Simply because you are not 100% in control of the results unlike the physicals or oral interviews.

                      I'll have to work on my timeline, gotta check on the dates

                      But I started the process on 10/2013 when I took the exam.

                      • I am going to ask this question again, does anybody know what the adjudication process is? What does it entail? Have you heard of anybody got rejected after this step? And why?

                          cbp website:

                          Q: What is adjudication and what is involved in the adjudication process?

                          A: Adjudication is the evaluation of data contained in a background investigation, and/or any other available relevant reports, to determine whether an individual is suitable for federal employment or eligible for access to classified information.

                          And assuming unsuitability will be because of the following.

                          Q: Why would I receive an unfavorable suitability determination at the conclusion of my background investigation?

                          A: Some issues that may result in an unfavorable suitability determination include: financial irresponsibility; poor credit history; drug/alcohol abuse; arrest history; misconduct in prior employment; association with individuals involved in illegal activities such as drug use and drug trafficking; and demonstrated lack of honesty/integrity in providing complete and comprehensive information about current/past behavior which may be unfavorable.

                          My guess is you may be able to elaborate further on certain circumstances where they find you unsuitable. Well hope that shed a little light on the subject for you.

My question is has anyone been in the same situation as me and how long did it take to get the green check mark.
                                I did my medical in April. The medical official forgot to do my eye exam without my contacts at the end of April. I heard its back at CBP medical office end of May. And I still haven't received a green light
