      Oh ok, I did the same thing. When I went thru the assessment, when you initially apply. I thought they might send you an email saying when you will like to take it and where. As we did for the Entrance Exam.

        They will give you the location and yes, they will ask what your availability is and they will schedule you an appointment per your availability.

          Oh ok cool! Thanks Bro. And good luck with your process. Just hope I do good on PFT when I get the call. I am worried about the Steps part.

      • I noticed some of you guys took the fitness the same week of the medical, I took my medical 1/30 and haven't heard anything in regards to the fitness

      • Polygraph tomorrow the 2/8. The application process was so slow at first and everyday I wished it moves quicker. Then, it moves so quick now I feel like I'm not ready for it. I've been stressing a lot the passed few days, knowing that just telling the truth may not help me pass the exam. Just want to let it out in here to help me relieve a bit.

        I have just posted my timeline for the first time, hope it's helpful for anyone on this wait boat.

          GNg I'm out of the Chicago area right now but I applied for Houlton, so I don't understand what the hold up is.

          GD1R90 I think this is the end for me. I didn't know if he completed the entire exam but he accused me for attempted to cheat the result, even though he sounded like I didn't lie the answers. He said it will be up to the upper's decision to give me a second chance or other determinations. I was being calm the entire course of the exam. The only thing I can think of was having normal body movements from the severe discomfort caused by the measuring equipment. I almost cried out as I defended myself. However, he wasn't rude to me the entire time or pushed me further.

          As concerned and happened eventually, being truthfulness is useless. The worst part is that I was told a failed result for manipulating the exam, instead of unfavorable or inconclusive. I am now just anticipating their next contact. Good luck everyone

          Don't be discouraged until you get the final result. You never know.

          You should've selected a location on your initial application. Where are you from?

          Normally they'll pick a location close to you. I'm from Mississippi and i took my polygraph in New Orleans, LA, which is like 45 minutes away

      • Anyone happen to have any luck rescheduling SI? Mine got scheduled for the same day as a mandatory company meeting at my current employer that has been planned for months. I asked if it was possible to reschedule but haven't heard anything yet. I'm pretty screwed either way I go on this, my application is automatically removed if I don't go to SI and my current employer doesn't know I am in hiring process yet so to dump that and the fact I have to miss the meeting will really **** them off.

          Try to contact Minneapolis Hiring Center as soon as you can, either email or call them to reschedule. My SI was done in about 1.30 hour, walked in-out. If yours is scheduled very early morning and your meeting is a little later, then you should be okay.

          Ok that's good to know, I emailed them back within 20 minutes of seeing the email Monday morning asking if it's possible to reschedule but haven't heard anything so just curious if anyone else had rescheduled and had no problems.

          Unfortunately my meeting starts at 7AM and lasts all day so there's no getting around it really.

          We'll see, hopefully they get back to me tomorrow morning but just found the number to call so I'll call tomorrow if I don't see an email.

          Well I spoke too soon. Ended up getting a email saying it was rescheduled about 20 minutes after my last comment.

          GD1R90 you were right, 1 reschedule allowed, such a relief!

          You need to call MHC. Contact info is in the app. I'm in charlotte, nc and that's where my polygraph was at. But that's because I caught the examiner on a good time and he was traveling to another location later that week and had to pass by me anyways. I'm 17-6 and I had it in August dude.

      • Cleared medical! Now I wait on a final offer!!

      • CBPO DH GS9 17-10 announcement. Location negotiable, but that only means they offer more than 1 place. In my instance, I turned down the offer as I couldn't get geographically within 200 miles of where I wanted. FTO Sammich Jarymoly

          There were no options when you decline, no "second call" with better locations. I can assume that everything transfers if someone wants to try again. Your not banned.

          Keep checking the website every month, you might see something you like and apply again.

      • Anyone else in Annoucement 17-11, have their poly schedule or medical review completed? I passed my SI 12/14 and since then been waiting for my polygraph and medical moved from scheduling to in review? Been in contact with the recruiter. Felt like things were really moving at first and now it’s just been a standstill.

          Jarymoly I think I know why you moved a bit faster than me, I see you applied to 17-11 Direct hire, I applied to the regular CBP Officer position. I'm just worried I haven't even taken my SI when some people take it in less than a month after submitting their BI packet, or similar. I guess you and I are in the same waiting list man, what sector did you apply for?

          AbsolLysol after the DH application I reapplied regular CBP on 9/21. I thought it would be faster through DH but surprisingly regula CBP is the one doing my hiring process. When I call my BI asking about my Poly he told me that in some areas they're backlogged.

          I don’t know if this helps but there was a solid 2 months between my SI and my Poly. It appears that after the SI everything slows down very quickly.

          Yup, all depends how many examiners are available in the location you chose when applying . I had my SI on 11/7 and my poly isn't until 2/20.

      • I just read the requirements, specifically CBPO 18-3 for GS 05/07, and I saw no vision requirements. Anyone have any input, on this? I saw a few other guys have mentioned about their corrective vision. I just received my NOR that I passed (1/21/18). Just looking for further. Thanks guys and good luck
