      I looked up that website category631 but all I found was BP stuff. Maybe I'm not on the correct website..?

      Nevermind, I found it!

      It’s easy. They ask You a few scenarios and want to see what you would do in that situation. Just remember you’re a law enforcement officer in these situation and you’ll be fine

  • Anyone take their SI in Newark? If so hows the parking?

      I took mine in Newark. They have parking garage around there that I suggest you do. I was in there for hours. Get there early you can get early bird prices for parking. I think I paid $10

  • Ok guys so I have to recertify my eqip. Then I'm going to meet with my bi. My question is. What if my neighbors don't give a good reference? I've lived in my neighborhood for 4 years. Never talked to my neighbors not once. But my wife has had some issues with them. She is worried that they may say things negative because of the issues she has had. Is this something I should tell the bi up front? Will that have any affect on my bi? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks guys.

      I can comment on experience. I have done the neighborhood reference 2 other times with other agencies. I did not know half the people listed on the list, aside from an occasional "hello". However there are several names for a reason. If only one person out of 5 (for example) has negative comment, then that is 20% negative rating or 80% positive. The job of the BI is to take the totality of all the circumstances, such as why the neighbor dispute, the credibility of the source, etc. Plus they look more for things such as illegal activity, more so than petty neighbor disputes. Hope that helps.

      Like gaston said, I don't really know my neighbors other than passing by and saying hello. I doubt a dispute between neighbors will cause an issue.

      Hal29 When you meet your BI just be honest with him/her how you never spoke to them and your wife had a little dispute. They will take that in account and give you a fair review. And like Louie said it shouldn't cause an issue.

  • If anyone had to send in additional medical information at the request of CBP, has anyone heard of anyone being disqualified after the examination of the additional information? From what i have been reading on here, I have not seen anyone disqualified for a medical condition. Unless i just missed it. Is it possible that they collect the additional information just to release partial liability if they do continue with hiring? Can anyone comment on their experience if applicable. Thanks Good luck.

      Additional information normally requires a physician to clear of you of your issues. So as long the the physician doesn't note that your unfit, you should be ok.

      yeah i had to wait two years i will reapply next month, im not worried though lol im a cop rt now and i have a secret clearance.

      whenever applying for a cbp job its never said and done on passing poly... they are by far the most difficult poly process.

      Went through the process in 2016 and got an Unfavorable Polygraph Result. Going to try again in the first week of August as that's when my 2 year restriction expires.

      so you took it four times and they were all inconclusive then how did you failed? they didn't let you retake another poly since the four prior were all inconclusive?
      I'm asking these because I'm about to take my 4th poly next month. Apparently the last three were inconclusive.

  • Sup Guys!!! Just to update you on my progress. I got BI meeting on the 18th. I hope everything goes well!!

      cs333 that’s correct, I think they used to be able to schedule the poly while medical was still being reviewed, but 2 people at the Hiring Center told me that’s not the case anymore. I’m submitting some additional info next week they asked for, then they say it could be another 2-3 months until that finally clears... it’s a loooong process that’s for sure.

  • BPA 18-3, currently at 50%, missing poly, drug and BI. I have my poly scheduled for next week. My progress has changed from the white circle to a white circle with three dots (...) for poly, final offer, and drug over the past couple of days. Does this mean anything? Also, how long after poly until I get an offer? I’m ready to go!

    BI was submitted to OPM in late March.

      I also applied to BPA 18-3 I’m at 63% just waiting on the BI and drug test. Finished with poly about a month ago been waiting since. Also I check CASS regularly and I’ve also noticed that a couple days ago whatbyou mentioned the three dots are on my final offer only. I’m sure it doesn’t mean anything.

  • So when I first applied to a VRA announcement I selected JFK as my polygraph site. I now realize I may be waiting a veryyyy long time for my poly. Anybody know if I am allowed to apply to a new VRA announcement? I am currently at 50% would everything just transfer over? I am thinking this time I will just select every poly site available hoping to get it done faster. I sent a few e-mails asking this question,but never got a reply so thanks in advance for the help and good luck to you all!

      You can reapply as many time you want and everything will be transferred but it will delay your process by just a bit 2 weeks to a month depending how long it takes for it to transfer.
      With poly sites you will only able to choose one.
      I hope this helps. Try contacting your case manager they might able to look into it and help things moving. Since I been contact with my case manager things are moving quickly. I do not know if thats the case or I am getting lucky. But it don't hurt a try.

      I wouldn’t change anything yet - i selected jfk as poly site also and they still called and confirmed closest site... I’m on Long Island and they sent me to valley stream which was closer for me

  • d2ep, I had to recertify my eqip because I am close to my one year. They said it was normal so my percentage dropped but will go back up. Told the bi will contact me in a couple days once my eqip is sent back to opr. I noticed one thing on my cass. Where it says final offer. Instead of being a white circle or a blue for in progress. It is 3 dots on in the circle and says pending. Does yours look like that?

    • I don’t think the dots mean anything in CASS... just an error for the image... mine was back to normal today

              I had contacted my case manager about a week ago of this issue and no one has replied to me also I was told to contact tech support and they have not responded either to my email . But hey I guess out of all the applicants some ones bound to have a weird issue.

              @ Jeepin120 did you miss the deadline on submitting the EQIP or did you get an email saying you are removed from the process? Try checking you spam folder as well. Its odd that you don't have a pending application. Try contacting a recruiter in your area maybe they can help you with it.
