  • Thank you! I believe my BI was submitted either earlier this month of late August. I started working out immediately after the first failed PFT-1 I recently received the invitation to retest just waiting on the confirmation with the date. The entire process is most likely going to take about a year am I assuming correctly?

      Out of curiosity, what part of the PFT1 did you have trouble with? Also, how long after the PFT1 did you have to wait to be rescheduled?

  • Does anyone here work up north? I got picked up for International Falls, MN, I prefer the cold over the heat and the cost of living up there seems really cheap.

      If we ever get back to FLETC I'll be in Vermont, that count as up north? You got lucky, northern border ports are few and far between these days. I swear half my class in going to San Yasidro LOL.

      Luckily I got Blaine since it seems to be a bigger northern port. Expensive to live up there but ya got to deal with it I guess.

      One of the other officers from my current agency got SY as well.

      Is FLETC closed right now because of the hurricane?

      Well I got picked up as a GS9, I don't know if that makes a difference or not, it was different post than the GS 5-7 one, although im waiting on my poly to be scheduled, so who knows when Ill finally make it up there

      I picked Blaine, WA as it is the closes one so far that i can work at. I wish Seattle will come up on the next announcement.
      fathitman are you awaiting FLETC?
      I just had my SI today in Seattle then they did a fingerprint after the interview. Is the fingerprint a good sign that i pass or is it a standard procedure?

    i failed the step test part I went 2:58 and I messed up the cadence so bad I just stopped. And they send it 6 weeks after you send the request saying you would like another try.

    • I had LASIK surgery for my eyes, I'm wondering if I'll be asked for more info on it? I know that normally when you have a condition you're asked for extra review on that issue (such as seeing a specialist), will it be the same for this?

        When I asked I was told if you get Lasik you can't accept the offer until 6 months after surgery date and you should re-apply. Something about making sure it heals, don't want to get OC'd etc. Once you get in it doesn't matter as I understand.

        It's actually not a automatic DQ if you get lasik. I have applied to multiple agencies and I'm almost finished with most of them and I have had lasik done. They would have DQ me a long time ago if it wasn't acceptable. Keep your head up if they ask for more information just hand it to them

        The surgery was actually over 3 years ago so the time frame shouldn't be a problem.

        I didn't have eye surgery but I did have back surgery two years ago; my record stated; "Restrictions discussed with Patient" for that reason additional documentation was required to lift the restrictions. THANKFULLY, my surgeon is writing a letter to lift my restrictions my medical is pending due to this I will let you know what the turn out is

    • I am on Deferment for CBP right now due to my wedding. Can anybody give me a little insight. Was it a good idea. Will that spot be there when I come off deferment? They say I will get another offer but can't say when unless there is a spot avial

          Richford, VT. There was five spots last time I talked to them and that was about 3 weeks ago.

          It might be an issue. Richford isn't that big of a port...maybe 40-45 people.

          You might have to wait...or be flexible enough to go elsewhere.

          If the examiner fails you then you are most likely getting a failed score from QC. The only thing QC is used for is to look at people who pass and see if they want to retest you.

          Sadly they most likely won't request a second one if the examiner already gave you a failing score.

          A lot of the BI investigators are also third party. No big deal really.

      • Spoke with FLETC this morning and today is the staff's first day back since Hurricane Irma. I was told my academy, class 434, which begins November 9, could be delayed until December. They aren't sure yet though.

          Huh I'm in class 433 starts Nov 2nd and haven't heard anything... I wonder if i could get pushed back too. That would be one long pre-academy.

          This is common for the FLETC getting pushed back.

          My prior agency I worked for them for 7 months before going to GLYNCO due to the shutdown that happened right before I got hired.

          Well at least you will get plenty of time to learn the stuff at pre-academy and probation should still be passing by as the time goes on.

          Wait so if we stay in pre-academy longer it will make probation shorter? I like the sound of that.

          I was wondering if you have found out about your class being pushed back?
          Im in the process now and I'm trying to get an idea of a time frame for when my academy could be.

      • About a month ago I went take my poly. I was told that I was having trouble with the serious crime question. Never got in trouble before. The examiner told me that I might have to retest but it is up to QC. I still haven't received my poly results but today I received a call to go do my drug screen tomorrow. I don't know what to think because I never got my poly results back. Anyone had this experience before ?

          Most likely it's retest because they wouldn't have scheduled the drug test. Remember no news is good news is what I learned from applying to Leo positions and federal agencies, just hurry up and wait

      • On the CBP CASS for both BI and SI it says "Not applicable" for me. Does it say this for anyone else? I applied to 2 announcements, 17-9 Direct hire and 17-9 (None direct). This only appears under the direct hire application ID.

      • I have a question about the medical portion of my applications. I have applications in for both CBPO and BPA, my VA doctor claimed I couldn't do some of the things required for the positions because he grossly misinterpreted the activity descriptions. I'm assuming that the medical review for both positions will come back negatively because of what he had to say. Is there an appeal process that would allow me to have a second opinion? I've passed my PFT's, SI's, the backgrounds will be completed soon and there shouldn't be any problem with those because I currently have a clearance. I'm just a little freaked out about how the medical review will come back, any advice?

        • Hi guys, just need some feedback if you can kindly comment. For those who had their SI done.

          i just had my SI and after the interview they had me do fingerprint. Is that a good sign for passing or its standard procedure?
          i thought i did good during the interview.

          Thanks

            When I went to my SI 3 weeks ago I was fingerprinted and then went to the SI portion. I did the interview on a Thursday and received my passing results on the following Monday.
