    So in 2015 I took my Medical/PFT-1 and passed, now I am a re-apply and got scheduled to redo them. Do they not carry over? Thought they were both good for 2 years.

    Also any tips for the structured interview? The VBT got me last time so glad it was removed.
    I just took the SI about 3 weeks ago. It's very easy. Be confident with your responses and use common sense. Make sure you pay attention to the information they give you before they start interviewing. I only got 6 scenario questions but it could be different depending on where you applied.

    I had my SI Thursday and got the results Monday as an email.

    • Did anyone here come from another department?

      Since I will be coming from DOJ I was wondering if my leave will transfer over or I have to start from fresh and sell my leave back to the DOJ.

        It'll go with you. Years of service, annual/sick leave, etc.

          Not speaking personally here, however I have 2 close colleagues that come to mind.

          One was BOP and the other was IRS and they both kept their leave when coming over to CBP. They also continued their leave accrual rate (one had 11 years so he'll be getting 8hrs/PP in 4). So in short, I would imagine that you'd keep yours as well. I'll find out for sure for you in the morning and I'll post back.

            • Got my test scores today passed but math definitely killed me... Guess it's just a waiting game now with a low score depending on how many people applied and if I make the cut then.

                Yes, but you're chances are high most people don't apply to the current opening ports

                    • Does anyone know if selecting the "NO" option for getting hired with a preclearance will have a negative impact. It says it won't on the form but I figure it might.

                      Did the preclearance for the BOP and didn't enjoy walking on eggshells for a year waiting for my background to clear.

                      So I selected the option to not get my final offer until my background clear. I know it will make my process longer but will I loss my offer to another officer who gets chooses to get hire preclearance.

                      Also curious what the grooming standards are for beards. I know CBP has changed them a few times. Are they allowed now?

                        Like everyone else said, everything will transfer over (for the most part). Obviously your seniority will not. Also, comp time will NOT transfer...so make sure you use it up before you transfer. Or you could just have the DOJ give you a payout for the time earned I suppose.

                              Are you still currently with BOP?
