      Casper_Talon same here, im waiting on Medical & BI to clear, and Poly to be scheduled. Hope the process will start to pick up again soon.
      county25 is also applied for Blaine and same spot on the path.
      Glad we have a few people here going to Blaine for almost the same hiring path.

      I took my medical and fitness on 9/28, still waiting for medical to go green on CHS, passed pft1. I still have the SI and rest of the stuff, hopefully all will be done and finished by March next year.

      Yep. Still waiting for poly to be scheduled.

  • Hey guys, I applied for the 17-11 announcement, took the exam and received a passing score, NOR Oct 5th. Have not heard anything else. I downloaded the app and when I log in, it says there nothing no file attached to my email.

    Anyone else apply for the 17-11 announcement?

      From the time I received my test NOR to the time I got an email from the hiring center with access to cass.....It was about 4 weeks.

  • Had my SI yesterday. I think it went well however I wasn't told if I passed or failed. They said I'd hear from the hiring center within a few weeks. Fingerprints were done shortly after the SI so I'm hoping that's a good sign...

      I was told the same as you. A few weeks for the result from MHC. It was about 7 business days for the result (pass).

      Congrats. Good luck with the BI

  • I I applied back in April went through all the processes so far and got to my polygraph. While doing the polygraph the examiner told me that I was failing one question had me do it one or two more times I believe and told me that I was still withholding something about that question. After grilling me for about 30 minutes to get something out of me(which he didn't cause I was telling him the truth and everything I knew about that question) I was told he would be sending a letter to his bosses for a possible retest. He told me it would be 2 weeks for a response and I just got a response today in an email after 3 and a half weeks saying that my job offer has been pulled for an unfavorable polygraph and that there is no appeal process.

    Is there anything else I can do to possibly get another chance ? Anything that might help is appreciate I know for a fact I was not lying so Idk why the test said I was and I really don't want to have to wait 2 years to reapply which is what the email stated.

      Two years ago I was in your shoes. that's why i applied two months ago after the two year mark. there is nothing you can do, i know, it really sucks. they failed me at the poly but they did give me a second shot a month after but they still failed me. I don't know what will happen this time around for me. The poly is unfair with the CBP and now they are reexamining the test according the the NTEU as they have the highest failing rate among other agencies. Anyways, really sorry to hear that about your test. Look for other opportunities.

      That happened to another individual and she ended up switching over to the FBI and landed a job in Intelligence! Keep your head up test again but in 2 years you could possibly get a job with another Federal agency. I'm sorry for those who have failed I will be going for my Polygraph soon and although I have nothing to hide the failure rate scares me

  • I got a call as I was leaving today from the Minneapolis Hiring Center & they gave me an EOD of December 11th, with Academy starting on the 14th. They also gave me a duty station list of 15 stations to choose from in 24 hours.

      Ah okay, I'm in the process for Customs not BP so I would be going to FLETC in Glynco, Ga. Unless I'm mistaken and CBP also has academies in Artesia.

      You can get a lot more specific info to your situation in the BP threads. Artesia is cold as hell in the winter especially the mornings, good luck

  • I usually just read what everyone is saying in here, but I’m curious is anyone CURRENTLY at fletc? I am just trying to figure out what to expect if I pass my polygraph (I’m just extremely nervous since this is a HUGE part of the application process/ make or break mark)

        Extra, I just had my SI on Monday and got results of a pass on Tuesday. Haven't heard anything yet as far as the poly goes but like yourself I'm hoping its sooner than later. I applied to 17-9 direct hire for San Ysidro and also 17-11 for Alexandria Bay.

        GD1R,

        I believe I did Alex Bay as well for the VRA postings and then I did a SYS for one of the direct hires, we'll see who bites first! Still no official word from MHC on whether I passed the SI but if they did fingerprints then I think its safe to say I'm good. I'll keep you posted if I hear from the poly at any point soon.

        I think the app updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays from what I've noticed. I'll bet you'll get your email on Tuesday.. And Alex Bay would be a great location, that area is a really beautiful place to live.

        Got the notification through email today around noon that I passed. App still shows reviewing results but like you said, I think they update it during the week.

    • Hello everyone,

      Been a lurker reading these post during my process of being hired with CBP. Curious when to expect my SI , i imagine its after E-Q / Medical. Any veterans with high VA % have issues?

      I applied for gs-9 out of Washington state. That was approved.
      PFT-1 Passed took 2 weeks to go green.
      E-Q in Review.
      Medical is in review.
      Drug test awaiting appointment.
      Waiting on everything else.

      Best of luck to all glad to finally be here helping with anyone i can.

      Also when you guys did your PT -1 is it normal they do not let you max out scores?

        There's a few of us that are in the WA port process, nice to add someone new!
        When I did my fitness, the examiner was a 20yr LE veteran, he told me it's a pass/fail, there's no need to max out. I did all my medical/fitness the same day, together, so I did the required and went on to the next. No reason for me to try to max, because that way my body was relaxed for the vision/hearing/etc.

        PFT-1 is pass/fail. No need to do extra.

    • Good Evening Everyone
      I'm from the 17-9 announcement for SY and have my SI scheduled for November, 1st. I am super excited, and a tad bit nervous. I'm with BOP now and cant wait to move on. Any advice is welcome.

        I am trying! been in for about 2 years now and have apps everywhere lol.

        and I did qualify for gs9, so hopefully ill get in!! I am a 6-2 now and that pay jump would be nice.

        fathitman Did they match you based on total locality pay when you were in BOP? I'm currently a 7-3 in BOP and qualified for the gs 9 CBP spot. I would think I'd start as a 9-1 but another step or 2 would be awesome, though the 9-1 is higher than my current pay. will.wilwon552 the greatest day will be giving 2 week notice to BOP lol, good luck

        will.wilwon552 I am also 17-9 SY!: ) Looks like there's at least 3 of us in this group going to SY; I hear its a super busy port we work days the first 2 months and then overnight shift but we get night differential and extra pay for Sundays...16 hour shifts and they give a waiver to go over the 45k Cap in OT for our port due to it being so busy! Anyone started looking for their children's school, place to live etc... in Cali? Moving with Family?? GD1R90

    • I’m a 17-7 applicant and just took my Poly on 10/18 in Chicago. I had a CBP employee do my polygraph. Everything was going well until the end of the polygraph when he started saying, “something was missing, I’m 99% there but I might be hiding some information” he then proceeded to tell me that I answered no to selling drugs when I never have. Does this mean I failed? Also if I were to take a poly retest what’s the point if he said I lied on e-qip form??

        No he went over it after poly. So after all the actual testing when I was hooked up to the components. He never mentioned me failing the actual test, just said he would send results and see what happens.

    • I applied for both BPA and CBPO and referred for both around the same time. Sent the e-qip and scheduled my pre emp medical, not sure for which one, and my BPA pft-1 is scheduled. How do I know which one the medical is for? Or would it apply to both?

        Look at the first email sent after you were referred on USAJOBS for both annoucements. It will have an applicant ID you will notice they are different. Medical and background is the same for both. I also applied for both.

        If I'm not mistaken, the format for the structured interview has changed from two years ago. Most likely, you will need to do it again. They take electronic fingerprints for most people at the SI. Good luck.
