  • How long does it take after taking you medical to receive your result? The physician said I did good but just want to be sure.

      Varies on your medical history and if anything came up during the exam (color/vision, blood pressure, hearing, etc.). There really isn't a definite answer here. The assumption is you have zero medical issues, have had no surgeries, and nothing came up from your exam, then let's say up to 4 weeks for a green check. Anything other than that, then you could be waiting awhile to get results. If you don't hear from them in 4 weeks, then I would reach out and politely ask if there is anything they need from you, etc.

      Good luck.

      I completed my medical on 2/19. I got an email to schedule the PFFT on 2/23. Took the PFFT on 3/1. Hope that helps. So if you get an email to schedule your PFFT, it is more than likely that you passed the the medical. Every step costs them money. lol

    • Would there be any drawback to applying for both BPA and CBP officer at the same time? The processes seem similar, but are they independent from one another?

        The only difference is the entry exam, fitness exam and the interview. If you apply for both and take a polygraph, it will be reciprocal and update on both hiring processes as well as the background and drug test.

    • Looking for answers or input. My process still shows 0% on the CBP Job App. It still shows my Eqip, Medical and PFFT in yellow. I have already completed them. Is this normal? Did anyone else have a similar experience? Did it change to green or did the percentage change shortly after completing one of the requirements? Or how long did it take to reflect on the App. Thanks. Below is my timeline for reference.

        Same here but I have not done PFT yet or being schedule for it. But my E-Qip says in review by HRM staff. Med still shows in progress scheduling in process & i took med more then a week ago. So maybe they haven't gotten around to update CASS

        I’m 18-3 aswell, pft is green, medical is blue even though it’s done already and eqip is yellow and says sent to review by her staff. Status bar is at 11%. Goes to show u it’s all a crap shoot haha. I went to my medical passed, all good. Checked app next day and said my application had been pulled bacause I didn’t show up to my medical. Had to to call to be reactivated. And now it’s still blue and not marked completed.

        As of today, I saw my first change on the App. 11%. Completion and green PFFT.

    • I am 22% complete on 18-3 and I haven't heard anything since 12-20-2017. I really hope they contact me soon. I do have a question for current CBP officers. I am currently in another agency and we have no grooming policy. So, with that being said, would it be wise to, when the time comes, do my interview with my beard or do you think its best to shave it off or at least knock it down a lot? A beard is not worth losing this opportunity for, but I don't want to shave it off for no reason either.

        If you don't mind me asking, what is green on your CASS app for you to be at 22%?

        For me, I would just trim it up. I don't have full beard, but like you said, I like it, and don't want to "assume" anything by shaving it off. If it comes up, I will say the same to them. That should I be hired, the first thing ill do is shave it off. Otherwise, my current employer allows such facial hair.

        Good point themoj0 I know that they have to be clean shaved in Glynco, Which I'm more then willing to do.

    • You can only be a veteran for them to honor your security clearance?

          It would depend on what their experience is, and what announcement they apply under. If they don't have any experience , then they would likely be under a GS5 announcement, which means a written test from the get go. The rest of the process can be pretty slow. The highest is the GS9 VRA announcements. That for applicants with prior military and LEO experience. No written test for that announcement, and the process moves a bit quicker.

      • So what’s the difference between direct hire a normal announcement ?

          If im not mistaken, Direct Hire is for a very specific location.

          Direct hire is essentially a waiver given by OPM that allows an agency overly stressed by hiring demands to bypass many of the standard federal hiring practices and regulations. Things like Veterans preference, test scores and competitive status.

      • Thought I was through everything and I got a call saying I needed to redo my medical because my one from prior was expired. I really hope this doesn't delay the process even longer. Its already been over a year. 17-6 applicant here.

          When did you take your medical? Background cleared a week ago today and I’m waiting to be contacted about my drug test. A few more weeks and I will be at the year mark. It going to suck having to redo something after waiting all this time.

          I had applied to BP a couple years ago. When I was going through the process this time They just had me double check my hearing and I had to go see a specialist. Got through everything without doing a medical so I assumed they just used the previous times medical for this time Since I was never scheduled for it and have done literally everything including drug. They made my appointment for yesterday and I show up at the Health clinic they told me to go to at the time they told me and they had no appointment for me set up! The health services dropped the ball somehow and now everything had to be rescheduled. As if I wasn't already bummed this was another delay. Just want the job already lol

          I took my medical 2/20/18 and the status hasn’t changed.

      • #17-9 - Maine, Currently sitting at 33% complete.

        Got hung up on pre-med for over a month, had to go get bunch of old documentation together. Finally got that all in, so now just waiting for medical clearance/approval so they can hopefully wrap up BI and on to poly (for which I'm going to submit a waiver).

        Now if only CBP would get that abbreviated FLETC class approved for us who have already been down there, that'd be money

          Abbreviated? I'm willing to say course content for CBP is unlike anything other agencies down there do. Even if you've covered Federal LEO basics before, CBP wants you to know it their way. A cut down course would never happen IMO, unless of course I've missed the scuttlebutt.
