      • Hello all,
        I forgot to attach the Residency Requirement and Provisional Clearance form when submitted the q-QUip because of my "good" memory even though I have read the instructions before I started the q-Quip. Did I just screw up a big time already?

          You should be fine - it happens to a lot of people. Were you able to attach them to your eqip and submit it?

          No, I tried to go back to attach them but was not able to login into the eQUip anymore.

          I also forgot to attach those forms. The hiring center ended up emailing me later on in the process asking for them to be sent in within a certain time frame that they will give you. You should be fine man.. no worries.

          I wouldn't sweat it. They want people to get through the process and should be sending you another request for additional information and you can update/attach what you need.

          There's a decent sized port in Baltimore. Do both, if you want.

      • How long does it usually take for the medical and PFT-1 results to be updated on the app?

        Of you I am hopeful applicant,(for the third time). I have a couple questions. For those who qualified for GS9. Do you start off GS 9 step 3? The reason I ask is because those who qualify for GS 7 usually start at step 9 or 10. Which is higher than GS 9 step 1. 2nd question, for those who chose a port with the 25% incentive. Do you start receiving that on day one or after you complete the academy? You can respond privately, if thats more comfortably. I have the last two steps in this process, pray for me. Good Luck and God Bless.
        They are only hired at a step if they were previous federal employees coming into Customs from another agency, often times Border Patrol. If you are a new hire, you will be hired as a Step one in whatever grade (5,7,9)


        Also, not sure why everyone thinks this, but Customs Officers does not equal CBP.

        "Curious if anyone else can actually confirm this but I failed my CBP poly, and checking the mobile app it now says pending fail but also says the same for my BP app as well" Border Patrol is CBP. That is like working for ATF, FBI, DEA or USMS and saying claiming your job title is 'Department of Justice'.

        CBP is comprised of other components. The correct thing to say would be 'I failed my Customs poly' or 'I failed my OFO poly.' Not quoting that one line to call that person out, but that is just the most recent of the thousands of misuses in this thread. Just telling people now, because better to find out now instead of finding out later after being hired that people who work for the other parts of CBP cringe when CBPOs claim the whole agency.

          If you were a current GS-07/09 or 07/10, they probably would step you up to a GS-09/03 on the promotion. Ask for the 09/03....the worst they'll say is no.

          Looking at it closer, it appears a 07/10 promotes to a 09/02

          Not possible. Since the 5/7 and 9 announcements are different announcements altogether, they can only hire you in the grades of the announcement you apply in. So if you apply in the 5/7, it would violate a sundry of OPM rules and regulations to offer you something else.

          That is why I tell everyone to apply for both the 5/7 and 9 announcements concurrently. Let them tell you no, even if you know you don't meet the KSAs and Qualifications for the 9 announcements.

      • Well...it is a CBP poly. See the Anti-Border Corruption Act of 2010.

        I wouldn't say CBPOs "claimed" CBP. More like it was foisted off on us when our previous legacy identities were destroyed. Nobody else wanted the "CBP" moniker, then or now. We got what we were given, not what anybody asked for or really wanted.

            It really depends on circumstance, location and preferences.

            Overall, probably Border Patrol nudges out OFO in all three...but it really depends on where a person lives/works, what sort of work a person wants to be doing, how long of a career does a person expect to have, and what sort of options/opportunities does a person value or not value.
