  • Hi all, anyone else under 18-9?

    Comment




    • Hello All,

      I’m thinking about applying to the VRA announcement, GS-9 as I am a veteran and current LEO. I was offered the CBP officer job on the 15-6 announcement in late 2016 but turned it down to take a job with the State Police Agency. From start to finish was 13 months. That’s from applying to being offered the job.

      My question, is the VRA announcement as quick? Also, I’m trying to go to Charlotte NC or Norfolk VA. Any chances that may happen?

        VRA hiring is supposed to be expedited. I'm at almost five months right now and all I'm waiting on is my medical to clear. I'm guessing I'll be around 7-8 months when I get the offer

        I’m 18-6 CBPO & 18-7 for VRA GS-9 for both and I’m waiting for my medical to clear I just sent in my additional information they requested and got an email yesterday that they received it. I applied back in April 9th hoping that it begins to pick up again it looks like it has slowed down for a bit. I’m in the Miami area looking to stay in Florida, but willing to go anywhere as long as I get in that’s what matters

      • Good evening guys! Today as many of us do i logged in to check my application tracker and I went from 63% down to 50%. I think a couple of us are having this issue. But did any of you loose a green check mark? My polygraph now says pending even though when it was at 63% when I would click on it said polygraph pass, and the examiner emailed me informing me that QC agreed with his results and that I passed. Thanks.

          Same thing happened to me. Don’t sweat it. It’s a glitch. It’s been happening a lot.

      • Hello!

        Does anyone know, once you pass your CBP Polygraph, how long (how many years) is it good for before you have to re-do it because it expired because your hiring process took longer?

          I accepted the final offer 3 weeks ago and my CASS was 100% and today when I logged in it says 88% and Polygraph part has 3 dots and says PENDING. It says you will be contacted by OPR to schedule one. I took poly last year in June. Is it a glitch in the app or am I re-doing it again? LOL

          STARCBPO apparently CASS has been glitching for multiple people today, nothing to worry about.

          I hope not! Thank you.

      • Hey everyone so I took my Polygraph this week and I was told I failed unless I admit to something, At the end I was told he was going to recommend That I get retested but the final say was not up to him. Has anyone been told that they failed and then end up finding out they didn't ? I don't even know what I Failed. Really stressed out about this.

          Dont worry too much man. To me that seems like a tactic to get you to admit to something.

      • Hey the posts are back! Or at least most of them. Ha!

        Thanks to forum team! This is definitely my favorite discussion site for the process (and other LEO info)!

        • Hello all! What is the typical wait time for the polygraph? I’m in Miami, and have noticed other 18-4’s have been contacted for their polygraph. I passed my SI on 5/23, and everything else up to this point is complete. I know, patience is key. Just curious about any insight you all have.

            It took me almost 4 months from when I took my SI.

        • I got the famous call today! EOD 11/16, FLETC 12/3. JFK. 18-3. I started the app process Oct 2017.

            Congratulations brother. I'm 18-7 DH, applied 4/1/18. I hope to get my "call" before the school year ends next May (where I work). Although I'd prefer coastal Georgia in Autumn or winter...

            Congrats! 17-11 applied for JFK as well, although the longer the wait the more open to anything east coast, approaching 3 weeks on results for poly - hanging on my verbal pass

        • Good morning all! I'm curious, is there anyone from the El Paso, TX area on here who applied under 18-7? Would be nice to know someone reasonably close to me is also on the forum

          If not in the geographical area, still anyone under 18-7? Timeline below as always. Congrats to all who have received "The Call" so far!

            I’m 18-7 as well under GS9 VRA. I took my SI on July 10th and got my NOR on July 11th. Now I’m just waiting to get my poly scheduled.

            Tremellio hey man that's awesome! I would prefer to stay in EP if they offer it to me when I EOD, but honestly I wouldn't mind moving just to get that recruitment bonus lol.

            TheMaligator hey man we might be at FLETC together. Right now I'm in the same boat, my SI was July 11 and got my NOR the 12th.

            Regardless, guys, we should keep in touch because networking is key. Hope to run into both of you someday!

            I’ve come to accept CASS is more of a tool to help applicants feel like they know what’s going on, rather than an actual application tracker/communication tool.

            Patience my friend. If you monitor that thing everyday, you’ll go crazy.

        • Does anyone who what the work hours are like for a CBP officer? Do they work panama 12's or 5-8's, 4-10s? Set Schedules?

            Shift scheduling would be entirely post specific.

            That should read "PORT" specific.

        • Well it looks like CBP is finally addressing the problem of the excessive medical review delays. There’s a job announcement for Med review team nurses open on USA jobs now. Hopefully they can get some hired quickly and get the process moving a bit faster.
