  • My BI just visited me today at work speaking to my supervisors, HR, and coworkers. It went well I believe. But now I feel really uncomfortable at work because my boss keeps asking me about when I am going to actually quit, so he can find a replacement. I said I have no idea, but when that time comes I will give him a 2 weeks notice. He did not seem to be ok with the answer.
    My question to you guys is... Can I quit now? I have done my drug test and signed off the declaration of federal employment form. My CASS app shows green on EQIP, Medical, PFT1, SI, and poly.

      don't quit until you get the offer... with budget issues and all sorts of unknowns, you're better off waiting to quit until you get the final offer...

      Thanks, guys! I decide that I am just gonna stay until I get the offer since no one can fire me with no reason anyway.

      Don't quit until you get your final offer... it could be months before they have you EOD

  • For those who already have done the E-Qip, is there a time limit to submit the E-Qip and do you get the call for the medical and PFT after you have submitted the E-Qip?

  • Hey guys quick question I just went for my medical today and was still waiting on my eqip to get cleared but when I log onto app to check process it just says there is no record of my email there even though i have been checking it frequently in last couple weeks. Anyone have this issue

    • So I have determined that I can retire from my current job approximately 5-10 years after I die. But on the bright side, at least I will be able to draw retirement from my current job by the time my background clears.

      Life is all about perspective.

        The waiting takes forever. Im in the same boat. I did my drug screen just this past Wednesday. Im also the 17-7 announcement

    • For those of you who have gone through the process, how long does it approximately take from the time of referral to the Training & Scheduling Unit to receiving the final offer?

      Also, is the BI workplace visit mandatory? I currently work in a corporate environment accessible only to employees, and our company policy strictly prohibits employees from providing personal references in any form to any third party. All employment verifications are handled by an outside vendor. Would that become an issue with BI?

    • Does CBP use a contract company for background investigations or is it all employees of CBP conducting it?

        They use contract background investigators.. I had 3 assigned contract background investigators to my case. Everytime id try to ask more info on my case, they’d say “we can’t give out much information, were just contract investigators”

        A Customs Special Agent administered my polygraph

    • Hey guys,

      Just need anyone's input, specifically for those who got a "unfavorable" poly result via email. Were you given a 2nd try for Poly? if so, did they call you or send you email?
      Did you have to follow up with the hiring center or the examiner?

      Being a responsible guy with a very clean record throughout my life, never committed any crimes, never had gang/terrorist activity, never use drugs at all. Been a CPL holder for almost 10 years, 1 deferred speeding ticket (down hill) 9 years ago, Been Working in IT industry for the same company for 10 years. Paid each utilities and credit card bills in full amount each month for the past 16 years & until now BUT still got a "unfavorable" result.
      What else are they looking for a great CBP officer?


      Any feedback or input will be appreciated.


      Thank you

        Just out of curiosity what is the poly based on? Your E-Qip,or do they just ask you randomly?

        usually its your EQIP...and they'll ask questions to see if you'll admit to the same things or lie about it

        Are you referring to the site that USAjobs forwards you to after applying? This is my first time applying to both CBP & BP at the GS-9 levels.

    • How long did it take you guys to get Tentative Offer Email after you got NOR for entrance exam? In my NOR email it said you will receive another email in 2-3 weeks, but I am getting restless.

      • So two days ago the app showed that I passed the polygraph and that my eqip was completed, I just checked the app this morning and now the polygraph says pending again. Eqip says in progress, reviewing eqip forms. I have gotten a new job since I originally submitted the forms and I told my polygraph examiner that. should I send my case manager and email about this or just wait to see what happens?

          Steph631_ have you completed the poly or anything? I had everything completed, have been waiting for background to clear and then today my poly changed back to pending. I am about to say screw it.

          FTO Sammich no I haven’t completed the polygraph. Waiting to do the SI. It’s most likely an error. You’ve made it this far hang on tight.

      • So I was checking out the Delphi forum and it appears that there are several people stating that their Polys changed back to pending. Something must be up.
