  • Good Afternoon,

    I took the medical exam on 3/12/17 but on the EAS processing status it has said verifying results for over the last 2 weeks. Is that normal? It seems like it shouldn't take that long. The fitness test portioned was in less than 2 weeks. Has anyone else had this issue?

      "Your application does not show that you have the required specialized skills needed for this specialty and grade"

      Already resubmitted initial questionnaire with GS-05 as my requested rate. You live and you learn. They've already notified me that they will use my previously taken entrance exam results (90).
      If your original GS07 application wasn't specific enough to address the required touch points for qualifying as a GS07. you might want to redo your application addressing the specifics asked for and resubmiting for consideration as both a GS-07 and a GS-05.

      Maybe it's all in what you presented them with and how, Maybe, as they said, it's your application that is short in showing that you have met the requirements, not your actual life/work history, education and/or experience.

        In my experience so far, it took weeks for them to clear the medical portion. They sent an email requesting more information and requested some medical records. They gave me less than a month, probably about 20 days, to get the records back to them. It took them almost 2 months to finally clear my medical. So if you've had any surgeries or anything, they're probably going to request more information from you.

        • So after a little over a month of waiting for my polygraph results I emailed my examiner to find out if he could have any updates on my case. He got back to me with the following response:
          Your polygraph results were supported by Quality Control and forwarded for adjudication. Please contact the Minneapolis Hiring Center for updates about your application status.

            What the heck does that mean?!? When you find out, let us know. That's really confusing.

              I had this issue. Since I have a high disability rating from the VA but I am capable of doing the job since I do pretty much the same thing standing around for the BOP.

              They gave me 30 days and there was no way in hell I could get the VA to see me in that time so I got their 30 day extension and tried to make it happen. Only to find out the VA doctors won't fill out the packet and I have to go to a private doctor. So I had to withdraw my application and find a local doctor to start seeing so I can go to them to get it filled out when I reapply.

              Sad part is I had EVERYTHING completed for my hiring process and the secondary medical was my last step. Hell even my background cleared in a month so I would probably be at glyco right now if it wasn't for this secondary medical BS.

              Thankfully everything is good for 1 or 2 years? Also my dream job LEO Park Ranger has refereed my apps so I am waiting on them and if they don't hire me I will just reapply to CBP and get the hell out of the BOP.

              I might just wait till they do another military/leo hiring and get in as a GS9 right away.

                Fathitman, I'm going thru the process as well and that is/was my biggest concern as in VA ratings. My ratings are very high; however, 2 years old. I haven't undergone treatment in over a year for any conditions. I do think it's a glass ceiling there. I understand them covering themselves on the accountability side. In the secondary packet does it tell you exactly what they want "cleared up" or is it just go see the doctors for an update all together? Thanks for posting this. I was thinking this was a possibility for sure smh.

              I spent a lot of time and tons of money to get my medical stuff cleared. I ended up having to pay out of pocket for a specialist b/c none on my current insurance had appointments available in a decent amount of time. I thought really long and hard about withdrawing my app and reapplying when a location I really wants opens up, but I'm coming up on the age cutoff too so I'll just see what happens now. Hopefully you will get the park ranger job you really want.

                When we see these specialist...are we being seen pretty much to say whether or not our conditions will prevent us from working in the field or not or are we seeing them in regards to stating that our VA health conditions no longer exists? I'm just curious what are these guys looking for to have us cleared to continue the process. Also does this secondary medical request come before or after the polygraph?

              im new to these forums and have started the CBPO hiring process. wondering if anyone might know the answers to this

              Currently i'm still in the Army as an EOD Tech. Does Having an active TS/SCI exempt you from the Poly and the back ground investigation as that SSBI has already been completed through the DOD.

              Was wondering as I check my CASS its says:
              Structured Interview - not applicable
              Back ground investigation - not applicable

              any info would be great, thanks
              I also have an active TS/SCI from mil AND I have successfully taken TWO full scope DHS poly's within 2 years. I asked if I could get it waived they said they don't think so! I wouldn't get your hopes up

              • Has anyone had an issue with a failed audiogram? Can I retake the exam with a hearing aid? What are minimum requirements to pass? I know I have some hearing loss from the Military and Overseas contracting dealing with weapons and law enforcement.

                  I just spoke to my BI case manager. I was told over phone I would qualify to not take the Poly. according to my case manager you have to meet these four requirments

                  -Be a vet with honorable discharge - I would assume this includes not having any article 15's and such
                  - have a TS with SCI
                  -not have been granted any waivers for clearance
                  -have completed a SSBI (single scope back ground Investigation

                  thankful I was finally able to get ahold of my case manager, BC I could find nothing definitive on the internet

                  If you meet all of that and still have to current clearance I would call and re check. Supposedly there is some paperwork I have to fill out. I can keep you updated as I find out more if you would like

                    I meet all that with the exception that my ts has been downgraded to a Secret due to time. I had another agency accept my older polygraph and CBP is checking to see if they can do the same. I like cbp but I have no faith in the polygraph and I don't want it to screw me out of other le jobs, not sure if I will take it or withdraw my app I completed everything else

                • Hey all,
                  Have been reading the last 100 or so pages, getting lots of good information. Was wondering if anyone knows if CBP officers get moved around the country at will, and often. Have a DEA family member who was hired under the impression not much forced relocations but did not turn out that way.
                  Also, I am in the process as well, just finished medical last week. good luck to all.

                  I am not concerned about relocation if I get the job, but am curious if CBPO's sign a mobility agreement and if they are moved as often as 1811's. After researching it seems like CBP has the opposite problem, difficulty getting a transfer.

                    There is no mobility agreement within OFO. Outside of a handful of people I've known who have been relocated due to port closures or serious reductions in port staffing, there are no forced relocations. The average person will spend his career in his original port...unless HE elects to move elsewhere.

                    Yes, OFO does have the opposite problem. It's far more difficult to transfer for most than it needs to be.

                    • I just got an email advising I have the Structured Interview next month. I thought the SI was done after the polygraph and PFT-2 was completed. Am I wrong? All I have done so far was the medical, PFT-1 and turned in my SF-86.
                      Not all men can be U.S. Marines that is why there is the Army, Navy and Air Force.

                      SI is before. I believe polygraph is the last step and if you pass then you do the pft-2 about 30 days before your EOD date.
