      I completed all the process with the USSS SA all the way to home visit an the end of September and it has been crickets since then. That is why I have kept with other applications.

      Why would you go from SS to CBP? My plan is to go the other way around. CBP > SS

      Lovetocamp- just remember that you will have to check the acknowledge button for resetting pay grade- I'm not sure what level you are applying to but the SS posting is a GL-09 job so if you exceed that you will be reset to that pay grade again. just food for thought

  • I had my poly in October, it updated to pass and I didnt hear back from anyone. I checked the app today and under background investigation it shows "pending- unsuitable" I haven't heard from anyone still, what does this mean?

      I never got an email confirming that I passed the poly. it simply updated on the app to pass. I never heard from a BI, never got an email from anyone until today. The email states:


      Your tentative selection notification stated that your offer was contingent upon successful completion of all pre-employment requirements, including a background investigation which is a condition of employment. We have been notified by The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) that you are not suitable for the position of Customs And Border Protection Officer. Therefore, your tentative offer of employment is withdrawn because you have been deemed unsuitable for the position pursuant to 5 C.F.R. Part 731.

      Sorry to hear that milushka22 they must've found something they didn't like on your preliminar background (credit history, public record, etc)... email your recruiter and try to find out the reason.

      Nope!! You won't get anything until they send your background packet to OPR then you will get an NOR email... It's kinda scary.

      If you like, you can contact your case manager and find out if they have received it yet...

  • Hey i have my poly coming up in a few days. What should I expect from the process and is there any advice on what to do or not do in terms of staying calm and trying to avoid anxiety?

      I haven't done any research about it but here you can read all kind of stuffs and can't be undone. Stuffs like the high volume of ppl failing the test. That's scary!!!

      annuitcoeptis I am sorry to hear that ( Sounds like there is still a chance they might ask you to come back for another test. Mine was rescheduled for 30 and now I am a bit scared. I have not committed any serious crimes either but it might not matter at all (

      Same experience for me, i failed. Passed police poly's before... CBP needs to do something about this polygraph test.

  • "As part of the effort, CBP will shift from recruiting locally to nationwide. Recruiters across the country will focus first on filling Arizona vacancies."

    CBP sure is hurting right now....

      Maybe this will give way to less stringent polygraphs- there was a special hiring authority request for waiving the Polygraph for a larger amount of people for BP based on some criteria that i cannot recall right now, but maybe it will follow over to CBPOs

  • Hello everyone. My question is this new contract company that was hired to help with CBP hiring, what is their job exactly because as I can see the process is still slow.

      Good luck with that.
      I'll bet that we see few meaningful changes out of that contract and that it will have no meaningful influence on any current applicant.

    Comment


    • So I took my poly and to my surprise failed because of the serious crimes question which is baffling seeing that I have a clean background. Investigator seemed liked a nice person but was trying to get me to admit to things I never did even telling me stories about previous candidates to try to persuade me. Investigator told me I failed and it was up to QC to decide. Anyone heard of QC passing people after failure and how long does it usually take before I get offered a retest?

        If you fail there's no retake. You can reapply after 2yrs. If your poly was "inconclusive" then they will call you for a second appointment, but only if it was inconclusive not failing.

        Now I've heard of ppl getting a verbal "fail" which can serve as a distraction and at the end they passed.

    • I had my medical today and had brought all my VA paperwork for my disability claim but the exam center stated they did not need it from me. I see that people have 'medical requested more documents' later in their process on their timelines, is that from exam centers being lazy and not collecting the said documents or something entirely different?

        I had all my paperwork filed out. I listed Asthma on the form that I took to my medical. The doctor went over the form with me and then submitted it. A month later I received an email stating they needed more information because it was discovered i have asthma. Attached to that email were a few more forms. I took them to my doctor and she went over them with me. Basically just a more in depth questionnaire. As in "do you believe this candidate can walk a certain distance?" "Is the candidate able to stand for long periods of time?"
        My medical cleared today but i submitted it in November. They just want to make sure you can do the job.
        So to answer, Its not them being lazy. Its just Customs covering themselves.

    • It was a verbal fail but was asked if I got offered a chance to come in again if I would to which I said yes after QC revision

        Oh ok, that is understandable.

        I just figured me bringing all my documents they would've taken it and it was a sketchy place here in NJ so I had asked if they had CBP guys in the past in which they said "yes but its been awhile" I have a feeling CBP is going to want my VA disability forms, just annoying that I brought it and with CBP most likely wanting those documents later it will prolong my process. It is what it is.

          Yea I said the same thing. If i knew they would want extra documents, I could have just had those filled out and ready to go. I never tried to hide anything. But like you said. It is what it is.

      • Back to waiting after this shutdown, and another week gone by without my background being cleared.

        FTO Sammich, how you doing bud? You're my buddy in this waiting hell we are in the same boat. I'm usually on the CBP delphi forums though.

      • Lovetocamp , I’m right there with you with another week of nothing. Maybe next week. My BI contacted me last week to discuss some things from long ago. So that more than likely means even more time before I find out something.

          17-6 here too. I met with my BI beginning of December. I have not taken my Drug test yet. I did get a call from my BI last week. He needed to come speak to someone concerning my passport and needed to talk to another neighbor. I didn't sign a pre-clearance waiver. I hope to hear something soon too! Even if it's just to take the Drug Test.

          I'll keep posting til I get an update though. I sent cbp hiring an email again yesterday. The border patrol hiring center responds within the next day. She even calls me too. Cbp takes forever.

          I met with my investigator January 2, 2018. I was really hoping I’d hear something back to start the academy on March but it’s dragging. I had 3 different investigators call me and meet with some of my references. 1 of my 3 personal references have met with one of the BI’s. I don’t know what’s taking so long, but i thought it’s go by fast since I work for a county jail and haven’t had many employers, arrest, residences, etc.
