  • Test sites are usually contracted official test companies. You won’t see any Cbp personnel there.

      FWIW, I have seen lower-middle level OFO management in plain clothes at test sites. Granted, that was years ago.

  • Do BI's follow applicants around the workplace and also do a sit down interview while at work? I work in an intense environment and must keep an eye on my clients who have behaviors all the time or I risk getting hit/beat up. I don't get a lunch break most of the time. How would a BI interview work in such a place?

      solo1 cool! Great place to be. I found an opening near my town when I browsed the new 18-13 announcement yesterday. I'm tempted to apply again. But I don't like having another hold up on my application or redoing the proctored exam or anything else that may not transfer. lol. I prefer to be closer to a big city though.

  • I was contacted by my investigator so we could set up our first meeting. He said 1 of the things he will be needing from me is tax returns going back to 2011. I do not have them and the IRS website will only give me back to 2014. Has anyone else had this happen?

  • Hello all,

    I took my polygraph test in late June, to my surprise the examiner told me that I failed. The examiner said I would hear back within three to four weeks with a final result from the adjudicators... I have still not yet heard back. After failing the test I reached out to everyone I could in an effort to appeal the exam, but to no avail. I have lived a very clean lifestyle specifically for the purpose of working in federal law enforcement. I feel like I am in purgatory and will never hear back. I would greatly appreciate any advice anyone can offer. Thank you.

      HHIsland After the test did the examiner tell you if you passed or failed?

      Ferguson32 I wasn't told if I passed or failed, just told I had some reactions and to clear up anything before submitting results to QC. I had nothing else to add. If I had reactions, then I don't know why. It is what it is. Just a bit frustrated with a long wait and not having a perfect polygraph. I don't even drink or had ever hurt a fly. lol. Hopefully we all pass and hear something this week.

      solo1 it's nice to get it overwith. But I wish the results wasn't such a long wait, though I've seen people get a pass a few days later or on the spot.

  • So for the SI, I got an email saying I passed and it updated on CASS. Do they send out scores as well of how you did?

      HHIsland I believe they are promoting a big incentive for San.Francisco

    • merlin436
      merlin436 commented
      Editing a comment
      If money is what interests you, those incentive pay locations only pay incentives for three years. Many of them, especially with regards to the rural ones, don't exactly offer much opportunity to earn top dollar amounts over a career in a more normalized setting.

      If you're chasing cash, generally bigger ports are better, southern ports are better, and land border ports usually top the list. If you're comparing a northern border incentive port( like Massena, Jackman, etc.) to JFK, I'd fully expect the potential career earnings in JFK to far exceed that found in Massena and similar incentive ports.

      merlin436 thank you very much for the info, definitely considering it all, I was thinking of switching from SWB to Chicago. Closer to home and no need for big moving expenses.

      Yes. Sometimes, when the President feels generous, he'll even give off Monday/Friday when a holiday falls on a Tuesday/Thursday.

  • Did anyone have the experiences to contact the hiring center regarding to your Grade Level? For example, based on the description of CBP website, if your experiences and education make you qualify for G-7, then the TSL only notifies you as G-5, do you guys negotiate with them about the Grade Level? Who should I contact to?

      As far as I understand. When you apply for an announcement that says for gs5 or gs7. When you submit your application you put qualifications and then take exam. When you get your nor it says you have a passing score and it shows for both gs5 and gs7 if your qualified. If your qualified for just gs5, it will just show that. That is how my recruiter explained to me.

      Hi Hal29, thanks a lot. On my NOR, it shows for both gs5 and gs7, however, on my TS letter, it only shows GS5. That's why I think maybe I should contact with them to verify this.

  • So I got the email saying I passed my polygraph last Tuesday. CASS updated, green on the polygraph checkmark, status at 63%. Today I check my CASS and all of a sudden it's back down to 50%, the checkmark on the poly portion is now pending? Any insight?

        solo1, Medical sent me an email a few days after my exam and asked, "What knee did you sprain? Did you wear your glasses for your exam?"
        I emailed them back and it cleared the following day!

        I got a similar email regarding my wrist asking which wrist I hurt... replied back it was my right and then never heard anything for 3 months then they asked for additional info. Injury is years old and healed with no issues... just think it is so inconsistent from applicant to applicant. And I’m currently working in law enforcement so obviously I can perform physical duties. I just don’t get it.

        I’ve read other posts where after meeting the BI maybe a week or 2 after they get contacted again. I don’t have an extensive background. Was also told every person is different depending on their background.

        Just met my case manager once, did call a couple of times to verify some info. I have a clean background and it took about 3 1/2 months to complete and recieve a suitable decision.

    • I got my passed from Polygraph on August 26th. Today got an email that BI manager has changed, assigned a new one and another email about recertification of e-QIP this morning. Literally got everything updated and sent back to my BI along with new provisional and residency form to submit. Just got another email that my e-QIP has been released to OPR for review. How long did it take for you to hear about the recertification process or if the provisional is granted? At this point, just need to complete the drug test?

      • Well, today marks a cool 90 days since passing my SI, still not a peep on getting my poly scheduled, or my medical clearance.

        I’m at 214 days since applying so far, still only at 38% complete. What’s most frustrating is I originally applied to a Direct Hire bid because it was supposed to be “faster.” What a joke that is.
