      I know you deleted your post, but you got a 100 on the entrance exam? Nice work! I don't think I've seen that before (outside of veteran preference)

      Is my old signature still showing up? I don't see it. Yeah when I first took the exam in 2015 I got a 100 with no vet points...what good that did me when I ran into the poly buzzsaw.

      This time around..this spring...I got a 95 with no vet points. I found the recent test to be slightly more challenging...but I guess they are dumbing it down starting this past month.

      SRT is attached to Field Offices, not individual Ports. Its very difficult to get into with strenuous physical requirements including swimming. I believe you have to be in 2 years before you can out as well.

  • If you received your EOD and FLETC dates but did not meet with an investigator. Does that mean you wont be meeting with one at all or is there still a possibility that you will meet with an investigator?

  • Anyone else here 17-11. Just curious as to where you may be in the process. I took my poly in May, received results in June. Was told to recertify eqip I believe in early July. But have not heard anything since. 2 months since poly. They told me they were starting field investigation but have not heard anything. Anyone else.

  • I started a new job right around the time I applied for CBP. Does anyone who’s far along in the process know when your background investigator will contact your current employer? I’ve only been with this new company about a month so I can’t imagine they’ll have much information. Do they save your current employer for last?

      • Hey y'all I just received this from the investigative division on behalf of my recruiter who reached out. What do make of it. I get it. I just want see what y'all make of it. Am I almost there. Seems the bi is going to contact me at the completion of my bi.

        I received this from the investigation unit.

        Please assure Mr. Leite that he has not been forgotten. He is in the final background phase of the hiring process which can take up to 120 days. His status is listed as pending his interview with a Background Investigator (BI), so I imagine his BI will be contacting him soon to schedule an interview. Once his BI submits his report, assuming there is no further derogatory information, and the National Agency Checks (NAC) with OPR/FBI are completed, HRM will be able to offer him a location.

          I don't think Nogales will fill anytime soon. That is my location as well. My situation is different dbnicole. My bi is at the end. And then the investigator will contact me to interview and possibly close out the investigation. I know my bi started a while back. From the email I received I'm assuming that is correct. I was hoping someone could clarify that from what I posted. I'm going on 12 months. If anyone can clarify the response I posted from the investigation unit that would be great.

          Hey! Awesome to see another female in here, I’m also 18-2. I met with my BI last Friday but still haven’t received notification to take a drug test. Have you been notified of a position yet?

      • Hey y’all! It’s official. The hiring center called me back today. I accepted Laredo, with a 25% pay incentive.

        EOD November 27th and report for fletc December 12th.

        Anyone here going to Laredo?

          Hal29 , the latest job listing for laredo is listed at 15%, i didn't think i was going to get the 25%.
          and to be honest, I'm surprised i was offered laredo, under my job posting, it wasn't even an option.
          my friend was told she was going to have to reapply under another listing if she was going to want laredo.

      • @n.n yes! Thanks!! This was 3 years in the making. I applied in 2015 but the polygraph kicked me out, I was applying for order patrol back then. My background is still being done, but I signed the provisional clearance form. So far I’ve seen my investigator twice this week & everything seems to be going smoothly

          That’s fantastic!! Glad this time was the charm! I’m awaiting the polygraph myself now, was your experience taking the poly better than it was in 2015? Like does it seem they improved it? Or do you think it’s all based on the administrator they assign you?

          @I'm a ninja , he told my mom that it looked like everything was going to go well for me. he didn't tell me anything specific, one of my previous jobs closed down, and their corporate is a mess, so its making it a little complicated, but he said my dates listed matched up to what they gave him..so who knows

          @n.n - it was way different. my first one was close to 8 hours and i left in tears. this one was no more than 5, and he told me right after everything looked good to him. and two hours later he emailed me saying it was approved and no further testing was required. i traveled 8 hours from home to take it. the first time i stayed local and it was the biggest mistake. i didn't want to risk taking it with the same guy i had last time, so chose to travel. i ended up taking it with the same guy that my bf took his with.

          So the investigator told you about contacting your passed employers? I worked for a company for 11 years and it closed down. Lucky for me the owner of the company was my father. So contacting him won't be hard.

          As for Laredo, when I applied it was all Swb I could choose. I chose Laredo but then switched to Nogales. I was going to take el Paso but that was no longer available. We will see what happens. Hopefully contacting my former employers won't be difficult. We will see. Hopefully soon.

          yes, he asked me for information ( even though it was on my equip) for all my previous employers listed. and when he came to my office for a 2nd time, he told me about how he had trouble with one of them because of they location they had me working was different than what i wrote down..and the location they have listed doesn't exist..they are idiots, but thats another long story.

          he told me specifically who was going to reach out to on my contacts listed as well.
