  • Not too long ago I saw someone post on here about if you contact the stage contact that you're into that will help. Well I took that advice to hopefully expedite the results from my polygraph and it actually did work. Although, it was not the response that I wanted. I still don't know If I passed my poly or not but I was contacted from the BI department and they deemed me unsuitable for the position. I was given a very vague reasoning and that if I wanted to find out more then I had to contact foia.gov. super frustrating. tons of time and money put into the process to then get shutdown, and I have to jump through more hoops just to find out what happened because I have no idea. don't think I can deal with that again.

    • Had a missed call from scheduling unit today. They called at 5:01 and they close at 5. When I tried calling back I just got the voicemail. Hoping it was good news!!! I will try again tomorrow

        Awesome! You are so close!
        About how long did you wait from BI clearing to a call for a drug test?

        San Ysidro. The number she told me to call back was the scheduling unit. Had to leave a message. Hate I missed the call. I hope it was for the final offer! I already submitted and had my 306 docs recieved about 10 days ago. And it was a few weeks from BI cleared to drug test

        Let us know if they respond, or call you back today. I found some phone #s on the e-mail I got, either for CBPO or BPA. Maybe I will give them a call later today.

        Got the call! My EOD is June 13th!

    • I'm seeing many of you have been waiting multiple months for your SI and poly. When I filled out my application I only picked one city for each- now I'm feeling like I should try to expand my list since I'm gonna have to travel out-of-state for both anyway. Does anybody know who I should contact to let them know to put me down for whatever site has the shortest wait time? Anybody try doing this before?

          FTO Sammich what port did you select in the new announcement? I looked into Dulles VA, but prices for housing are super high. Not for a GS-5. Will wait for Blaine patiently.

          @EnforceTheLawBro didn’t change anything. I submitted the same application but to the gs9 announcement and got it.

          Casper_Talon this was for the April 18-7 announcement. I seen Dulles is on the new announcement. That would put me a couple hours from home. But I selected Houlton, Maine. I want to move further away from home lol

          My Drug Test says In progress for over two months now so no real meaning. I emailed them and they told me its a random scheduling not to give advance notice.

      • For those of you already at the Academy. I got the call today! My pre-Academy starts June 13th. The lady told me they will government pays for transportation to and from the academy. Does that mean pre-academy or the main Academy? The Scheduling unitnis really hard to get a hold of for further questions

          Congratulations!! Yes have to agree it’s such a relief to not only see the constant “failed poly” news. Did they offer you multiple locations or didn’t you get what you applied for? Was your announcement location negotiable?

            Don't stress, you are probably only a month or two into the process that is about 13 months long on average. Embrace the hurry up and wait man.

            Oh I know the waiting game is real, I just want to make sure there aren't any errors.

            Turns out that's what this was! I finally got in touch with someone and the status I was seeing was a mistake. Thank goodness!

        • I'm in the process for CBPO 17-10 and currently also applied for BP and they validated everything , I'm pretty much all caught up to my poly pending for both

          does the provisional clear form help out to get the job faster ?

            @N.N im not sure why it took so long because i don’t have any medical problems, from what i was told they were just super backed up. blackraiin mine was expedited for some reason and was requested to go faster.

            LSamm when I received an e-mail to re-certify my e-qip, it stated that it would be expedited. I sure hope it’s for this whole Background process as it’ll be 2 years that I’ve applied come this August/Sept.

            blackraiin that’s ridiculous

        • Hey guys, its been almost 8 months and still no update on my Background Investigation. Trying not to go crazy here but every time I contact the Help Desk all they say is that my background is in the personnel security stage and that they can't give me a time frame as to when it'll be finished. Any thoughts?

            I passed my SI about the same time last year as your timeline indicates except I didn’t take my poly until February of this year. I also waited 8 months in between.

            Don't know if there's a point after which you can't change, but you could look into switching to a provisional clearance. That may help speed things along.

            blackraiin been over a year and 2 months now that I've been in the process, trying not to go crazy here lol

            N.N. I had originally sent my provisional clearance when I first began the process and then about 2 months ago they asked me to resend it saying that they didn't have it so I did and I even got an email saying they received but haven't heard back from them since.
