      • hey just wondering if this is normal

        under background investigation it says this: We have not received the background investigation documentation which is required to begin your investigation.

        and under Pre employment forms it says this: One or more of your forms may have not been received. You will be contacted if additional documentation is required.

        by the way i did fill out the equip and all the forms required in the begging when I applied

          My buddy was a federal agent in Laredo and I visited a few times. It is a pretty decent city. He loved the fact that he was always busy. Being that you are from Miami, you might like Brownsville since it is super close to south padre island and beaches!

                  The requirements at the academy are different than the physical test. Need to do 24 push ups, 1.5 mile in 15 minutes or less, sit and reach is 12.5 inches, and 220 in 45 seconds. All are easy to pass if you're in shape. I was just surprised at the amount of failures when you've come this far and have known all about it.

                    • Hey all. I've decided to accept the offer of Alexandria bay. It is very difficult to know the future and even though I know there is need for the port I wanted, there is not telling when the next announcement is and how long it will take to reapply and wait for the next job offer.

                      I got help from someone already but if there is anyone else that can give insight into this area please let me know. I will be taking a trip this weekend to get a feel for the area and will make my final decision this weekend. Any info given is good such as overtime, morale work load etc. Thanks in advance.

                        Pre-Employment forms omission is normal.
                        Background will update when they get around to CASS

                          I'm looking forward to some snow and elevation changes.

                          Oh... and I'm female, but no worries!

                          Anyone else not have CASS updated for anything? Pft/medical were done...eqip was in on 8/16... everything shows pending. Including the background documents.
                          Ahh would have never guessed you were female based on your handle. I see you took A Bay, I think that's a much better choice than anything in Maine. Good luck too you.

                            I have a feeling that most of you in the adjudication have been there so long because there was a recent breach in security with the companies that are contracted out to do the background checks and that CBP has stopped dealing with some of these companies. Not certain but maybe that has something to do with it. Heading to FLETC in a week!
