      Assuming your HR people do their job, yes all your leave from your current Fed job will transfer to CBP.

  • Question of the day! Riddle me this: if what med review claims is their procedure is true and files are "reviewed in date the order they're received", how come they are unable to provide you with ANY type of timeframe? If they truly have a program/system that organizes files in order by date, it should be simple to see how many people are in front of you in the queue. Ultimately at this point, I almost believe they just throw everybody's name into a big hat and pull names out randomly.

      I submitted my additional paperwork on May 2nd and got a phone call today telling me my provider didn't fill out the paperwork correctly for the physical. So now I have to do it again and resubmit it.

      So it took 142 days for them to check and tell me that.

      You are very lucky...They gave you lot of chances... You must have met all the nice examiners in the US..lol. Usually, I see people got "inconclusive" once , than came back one time and thats it. Either pass or fail.

      I'm on mobile and works fine for me. :/

  • Done with my medical. Awaiting my results. Perfect score for everything, I went to the ER years ago for something that should have been a doctors visit but I had great insurance so I went to the er, I was in and out in 45 minutes. Nothing came of it at all and there was no treatment or tests done. (Silly I know but I was being cautious) I literally fell and had some bruising days later and I continued to work out daily as normal but the bruising was quite ugly. Does this seem like it will be an issue. As in going into med review and a delay? I've never broken anything, had surgery or needed medication for anything or diagnosed with anything. I just keep checking my email eager to know if this will cause a major delay. Figured input from you folks would help. My pft1 is next week. Thanks in advance.

      @n.n thanks for the heads up. That's extremely unfortunate as myself too am in great shape, very healthy and no medical issues or concerns. However instead of visiting a doctor I decided to get a quick check in the er, literally in and out without getting a room or anything, spoke with a doctor and that was the last of it. Sucks to even have to put it down but it did ask on the medical paperwork if I ever visited the er.

      Honestly I think it is different for anyone. I know some people got cleared in just a few weeks. For me it was around 2 months maybe. Maybe a little less and I had put that I had knee surgery. Brought it up at my medical review. They did a strength test with no issues. But my survey was 14 years ago and I went on to compete in bodybuilding and powerlifting afterwards. Not sure that made a difference. Just stay positive.

      TFS yeah man, it’s unfortunate because it really feels like people like you and I get punished for just trying to be completely open and honest med review has really just become the longest part of the process for whatever reason.

      @raundy06 and RJ_Jersey I'm also 18-3 and haven't heard anything since I passed my SI on may 17, 2018. I'm still currently at 50%. Passed up on some over great opportunities with my current agency cause of this job. They are extremely slow. I hope To hear some good news soon. It has been almost a year, I originally applied for 18-1.

  • 18-6, frustrated with the process. At this point it's been nearly 4 months since my SI/Finger prints and not a peep. No medical request or holdups just waiting on a poly schedule. Beginning to wonder how backed up could it possibly be? Emails to my case adjuncter and he says just keep waiting.

  • It seems like the rate they've been scheduling polygraphs lately has slowed way down. Almost like they've lost some examiners or something. Just looking at hiring forums like this one, 6 months to a year ago, it seemed several people would post every week that they were getting scheduled for the poly. Nowadays, it almost seems rare. I don't know if I've seen a post in the past month or two of somebody actually being scheduled...

    • Hey guys so drug is going from pending to in progress repeatedly. I only need my background and drug test, still waiting on medical to clear as well... Does drug test going from pending to in progress multiple times mean anything?

        Im waiting for background & drug test also but my drug test thing has been "in progress for weeks" so idk if it means anything.

    • Anybody else just waiting for background to clear and drug test? Hal29 any word yet bud? I reached out today to my
      contact at the hiring center and I don’t think I could have gotten a more generic response haha. Crazy that so many of us haven’t heard anything, yet they’re booking FLETC into March of next year.

        Hal29 I don’t believe I will fail. I’m not saying I haven’t made some mistakes in my life lol but I laid everything out on the table and I don’t have any kind of record. I’m just making an assumption because why else would he say I may not have to take the drug test? Could be for other reasons, just putting down what I think.

        Hal29 I’m not sure if there is an email for the background investigation division. If there was, I would hope that the contact from the hiring center would have given it to me considering I asked her questions specifically regarding my background investigation. Definitely frustrating how they keep us out of the loop with our status.

    • *UPDATE SINCE LAST POST* In Announcement 18-8, pretty much in TSU phase. Got an email regarding a form for declaration of Federal that I completed going on my personnel file. My drug test updated to Pass with a green checkmark. I'm at 75% now and received and email that I have been granted provisional clearance. I have to lift my credit report freezes yesterday which were requested, so just waiting on the okay to place them back on. Just only waiting for the call...

      381 days in the CBPO process.

      **JUST GOT THE CALL! Selected Dulles, VA!

    • To be honest guys this is a long process that will all be worth it in the end but you can't get too obsessed with it just gotta live life and when cbp decides to process you they will. Currently 8 months into the process only 38 percent. Good luck to everyone stay in shape and enjoy your lives

        douglasgene1 definetly and thoose who are completely honest to a fault get screwed. I disclosed seeing a social worker once 9 years ago in college where the records were destroyed and it has landed me in the medical review abyss.

        ive always been honest to a fault never got screwed over from law enforcement. Every law enforcement ethos has honesty on it. Mistakes are mistakes but you have to live with them for the rest of your life, so if it doesn't work out that's apart of it. Don'rt get me wrong i have been turned down by police departments, not for my honesty but i did not posses certifications and credentials they were looking for at the time. The best advice is just keep pushing forward and keep applying someone will take you one day.

        Yeah I was honest I know that much. They contacted everyone as well. I've applied to several police departments. At the time I could not make it for certain steps in the process. Not for bi reasons.

        AMT it is crazy, we were originally the same announcement and then you applied to a newer announcement and got your eod. Wonder if that made a difference. Hopefully I get the call soon. I'm so close. Bi packet was submitted almost 3 weeks ago. Investigator said he had been working on my packet for around 2 months prior. Gathering info and such, contacts with another investigator who was working out of state. When he submitted my packet he said everything looked good and had no issues. So hopefully things don't get prolonged. So far I haven't had any issues other just 3 months of wait between equip and si and poly.

        @Hal29: Yea I hopped on it as soon as the recruiter sent out an email to me regarding the new locations and was like apply here and email back when completed. So as soon as I got it, the next day, I reapplied and email the recruiter back. You are almost there Keep me posted!

    • Hey guys so Border patrol agents get paid GL scale... Until they reach GS 11... so is the CBPO and BP agent retirement the same? Cause I know BP is considered LEO... Not sure if CBPO is LEO

        The Title 5 law that defines "LEO" for the purposes of GL pay and 6C/12D retirement is antiquated and does not represent all federal law enforcement positions. Many are left out.

        CBPOs are not defined as "LEOs" under the obsolete Title 5 definition. We are covered under the same retirement because in 2008 we were added by virtual or the CBPO series as an equivalent to "LEOs" to receive 12D/6C retirement.

        GL is just a designator for pay in certain LE jobs from GS3 to GS10. It alone doesn't guarantee LE retirement, the ability to fall under LEOSA, or "LEO" status etc.

    • solo1 yup, 9 months since i first took my medical back in January.. Then they needed additional information which i gave them back in April/May and as of yesterday, they cleared me.. haha

      raudy06 i took my SI back in May as well. I am hoping that now i am cleared with Medical, I will get scheduled for a Poly. I was under the impression that Medical had to be cleared first before i got one, so we shall see. Hopefully i get the Newark NJ Location for my Poly because i am in the Police Academy now here in NJ and it would suck having to go to DC
