      rachrose77 I've never heard of anyone having their offer completed rescinded, just changes to dates/locations. It obviously wouldn't make sense for them to rescind entirely when you've passed all of the clearances (something very few people can do). Not to mention, CBP has spent tens of thousands of dollars to get someone to the point of a final offer, they certainly won't just throw you the curb. I think if they tell you you're going to port X on the phone, they just want to make sure you can't sue them if a month down the road they decide you're needed more going to port Y lol.

      when you eod, do you pay out of pocket to get to FLETC or does DHS pay for that?

      Douglas, transportation costs are provided by cbp. You only pay if you decide to drive to fletc and the cost of driving is more than flying. At that point they pay you for the cheaper of the two. If you fly then everything is booked and paid for directly from CBP. Driving you get reimbursed for mileage and whatnot. However if the flight costs 160 and the milage is like 300$ worth your only gonna get the 160.

      Also on a side note a car is a God send down there

      Nycguy718 What are your FLETC dates? I EOD at JFK Nov.26th and start FLETC Dec.10th. Seems as though we'll be down there the same time.

  • If you do provisional clear, how do you know when the BI is actually completed if it shows as pass in the app?

      If your background says “ completed” and when you click on it and it says “pass”. I believe then it’s clear. I signed provisional and mine is still “ in progress”. My investigator sent his stuff in August.

  • CBPO 18-3 VRA. Stuck on 38%. Last thing I did was SI back in May. Still havent cleared medical, never met with a BI and obviously never did a poly. Did mine get lost or did I get removed from the process and not get told?

      douglasgene1 Why does it seem like your process is way out of order from the rest of us? You did your eQIP after medical and physical? That's strange. Anyway, I submitted my eQIP back in March, but I never spoke with a BI. Never had a meeting and never got contacted to have one. I'm not sure if they're just not doing it at all or if I'm removed from the process or what.

      Dispute all negative ones and the ones that dont get deleted call them on a settle them. Try and settle for for than 50% but ask for a letter or email 1st saying it will be deleted once paid. Works like a charm

      Its ok to have debt, as long as you can show them you are responsible and paying it... not collection... I guess they assume that when you have collection on file, you are not responsible and when people are in lot of debt, they will do "bad things" to make money too... A_J_B

      V_AntCBP That's not entirely true. I have 2 collections on my credit report and they don't mind that they are there. I had a legitimate reason as to why I couldn't pay. As long as you are honest about it and usually are paying it down, they will be ok with that.

      Just be honest. I have debt. Explain why? For years I was the only one employed in my house. My wife has medical issues that I had to take care of for years. I have a mortgage as well and some of her debt also is hers that carried over. Just explain. Like my investigator said. It is tough being the only one employed. Everyone has debt. Try. It is one thing if you work and live with mom not paying debt.

    • My journey here
      I applied for 17-10 announcement and was requested in February this year additional info. Sent it to them on March, and in the mint time I applied for other 2 announcements CBPO and BPA, since I was qualified for a higher pay grade. Haven't heard anything from them till 2 days ago when they sent me the same form that received in February to do it again. I called them, and guess what happened. They never actually looked over additional info sent it in March. When I told the lady on the phone that she has the information there already, she seems to be a little surprised. She asked me if I want to redo it again, or use that one? "Well ma'am things didn't changed since last 6 months" so go head and review that information....

        wow ridiculous !

    • Need to vent: I applied back at the beginning of the year. Been frustrated by the movement. Have only done test, fitness, and physical. Been waiting on medical review and nothing has happened since May for me. I re-apply under the 18-12 announcement and I have an interview scheduled already! I'm and at the same time!

        I've been tossing up on that as well. Seems when one reapplied they move forward. As if older applicants get pushed aside. Annoying to say the least. I'm done. Just waiting on bi to clear and drug test.

    • UPDATE: I received an email from OPR’s Personnel Security Division. I was told they needed more information from me to move my paperwork along. They requested that I send them a copy of my birth certificate and a Acknowledgment of Advisement letter. The letter basically said they completed a investigation on my background and they found some serious concerns about my suitability for CBP employment.

      However, they also found information lessining the severity and/or shown that I’ve taken action to correct my behavior. It said because of that, I have been found suitable for CBP employment. I basically have to sign the letter saying I promise I won’t engage in these behaviors again and if I do, I would be removed from CBP.

        DP23 that email was not a NOPA. it says that I was found suitable for CBP employment, as long as I signed and returned the advisement of acknowledgment letter. If I did not, it would revoke my offer of employment.

        I would just think if I was going to get a NOPA I would’ve been sent that first before they sent me that email. But only time will tell what’s going to happen through the process. Hopefully, I won’t get one of those.

        I tried contacting the equip department to see what may be going on. My recruiter said contact them as well because he can't understand what is going on either.

        Contacted them 5 days ago and no response. So not sure what to do now. I guess just to wait it out. Does anyone know who else I could contact?

        I contacted my case manager, they said there isnt a timeline. My background investigator told me he turns in his paperwork, his company have 45 days to release it for a QC. idk if its 45 business days or 45 days total.

        No eod yet just waiting like you lol

        i told my case manager that, they should have a time line since they talk to you're bosses at work, now they wanna know if they need to replace me and or keep me.

          Passed Poly and had my one on one with the BI about a month ago. On CASS states I'm about 63% complete. Still waiting on drug test and if my background investigation has cleared. Wait time for me on the poly was about 4 months.
