  • Does anyone know if you get the PFT-2 email before you know your EOD Date or you will get the EOD Date after you pass your PFT-2? I received an email and it says, congratulations on your Entrance on Duty Date and as a final step in the hiring process, you are required to do PFT-2.. this is for GS-5 which still had PFT-2 back then. I declined GS-5 today since I also have GS-9 that I am waiting for the offer call to be made!

      STARCBPO I emailed them a few weeks ago and asked if they could give me an estimated date ( knowing they could not). They were very nice and said I was on the ready to be called list and just have to wait until a vacancy opens up. They may have offered you Seattle because your GS-9? Maybe a spot opened up for that level but not GS-5 yet?

      Congratulations! The time finally came. I accepted my job offer but haven’t received my email about my PF2 yer. I’m wondering if they’re still gonna make me take it.

      Jones415 It could be that or it could be because I have been in the process since January of 2016 almost 2 years and 6 months. I waited, waited and waited and waited... lol

      From what I read and I have a friend who is in FLETC, he didn't meet the BI until he got EOD and Academy dates. He met BI 5 days before EOD. But he had to do Drug test and finger prints before The call. So lets see how this plays out.

  • STARCBPO: What locations in Texas? I currently live in Texas and originally picked Laredo but Changed it to Arizona for the incentive but they were also expediting Arizona. Wouldn't mind somewhere like Montana though if it was available.

      I believe Laredo. But from what I've heard is eagle pass is nicer but tough to find housing. I live in Texas. Was looking at eagle pass but couldn't gun housing. Seems to be much nicer though. I ended up picking Laredo and then eventually switching to arizona do incentive and housing. I'm just waiting on bi and drug test. Took poly and passed In may.

      Does anyone know what a subject letter issuance is ? I emailed to see how everything was going and they emailed me by mistake saying I’m pending a subject letter issuance then they told me to disregard, that email was meant for my adjudicator. That I’m still in the process.

      Starcbpo laredo is more busy but what I heard from a few people that work there that eagles pass is nicer

  • So did anyone not have their fingerprints taken during their SI? I had my SI 5 weeks ago and they didn't take them then, I assumed they would send a card in mail but I never received one. I emailed the SI team a few days ago and it sounds like I was just overlooked and they would send the card now... smh, I hope this doesn't cause some sort of delay in my poly scheduling. Though it's supposedly on hold for medical right now anyways.

      I did mine to after my si. Didn't have a finger print card sent. Try contacting them to see what they say.

  • I did take them at the SI but I think they still do. One of my boy took it at SI but still had the card in mail and had to do it. I guess maybe it wasn't clear enough or something.

      Ah yes, I just thought it was weird, the way they worded their email was if they forgot to send me a card and me asking reminded them lol.

  • STARCBPO, I'm also curious to where in Washington they offered. If you could enlighten us what the locations were Washington and Texas. Might give some of us an idea of other ports, airports. Thanks.

  • Does anyone know when you get contacted to retake the poly do you retake the whole thing or only the one section you failed in ?

      You only take the section you failed

  • For me I had to retake the whole test. Different than first but a full poly. Pre testing was shorter.

  • Because I had issues from the get go with posting. I couldn't post for about a month and once I could it is all screwy and I only have that option to post. I do what I can. Unless I'm missing something? I post from my phone. Trust me it annoys me just as much.

        I'm curious to know why Laredo, houston and dallas has such a high percentage for locality compared to somewhere like arizona. I don't think that includes recruitment incentives which is higher in arizona, where as Laredo doesn't offer.

        @Hal29

        Locality adjustments supposedly help with keeping the salaries of federal employees competitive with their private sector equivalents.
        Places like Texas have oil workers, NASA employees, IT folk, defense contractors and the like that drive up the average private wage. Arizona...much less so.

        Merlin436: so locality is hire do to the competition with private sector but the recruitment incentives are higher in arizona or say Cali because of the need to fill those ports?

        Yes.

        Locality pay is essentially a US government-wide program run through OPM. Those recruitment incentives are CBP based and will exist only as long as CBP feels the need to offer them.

    • I have submitted my e-qip yesterday and it’s already been released is it normal to be released to higher after one day?

        Mines was after 1 kick back, hopefully no kick backs from higher up

    • Does anyone know if at any point CBP will request VA records? I already claimed I had 30 percent anxiety from when I went to To the medical portion. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

        They'll ask you to send your VA rating letter. Bring it to your medical exam and have them include when they mail in your results. They'll more likely send you to a mental health physician to get cleared for anxiety. They get very thorough when dealing with mental health issues.

        I would think if the va doctor signs off on it that it wont affect work it should be ok

    • Yeah I was just at medical and hopefully cleared that, now I have fitness and SI within this month. The poly is not scheduled yet. At what point does our background investigator contact you? Thanks for the back and forth. This helps me a lot to communicate with others in the same process.
