  • Has anyone had any calls from CBP that were from an 850 area code? I know that’s Tallahassee. I’ve now convinced myself that I just missed a call from them and now I’ve missed my chance. Haha. The Number doesn’t ring when I call it back and the voicemail had no sound.

  • For anyone waiting for medical, I basically begged them for an actual response vs a generic email... and I got one. Apparently my file was reviewed by a nurse and then sent to a specialist or two for further review (I only had three issues they requested additional documentation on) and is now back in line to be reviewed by a nurse. So I'm assuming this is why A) things have taken so long and B) other people who have turned in additional paperwork before me, have cleared. It's just a comfort to know what's actually going on and knowing my paperwork is still being reviewed.

        FWIW, a lot of the earlier posts on this thread are either less relevant or very much obsolete in today's OFO.

        The ports in CT are few and none are all that big.

        I live here in CT, like you said Bradley and I believe the New Haven Port has CBP but both don’t have a big amount of people. JFK and Logan are the closest big spots

    • Looks like all the new cbpo job listing not going in detail no more on exact locations besides the major places that hurting for ppl, just with the negotiable now

          Congradulations man!! That’s awesome! Was it a good experience overall? How long did it end up being? It’s encouraging to hear less and less of the poly “horror stories” people were seeing a year or two ago

      • Wanted to share. I just recently received notification that i passed my medical. See Timeline below. So for those with experience, what is the next step? Is it Polygraph? Or does the background clear first. And generally how much time is in between the medical clearance and the next step? I know i have read this particular question and answer in previous posts, but this thread is getting too large to search. LOL

          gaston Looks like your next big step is "wait for poly" like many of us. Timeline for the wait is different for everyone, anywhere from couple days to months... You are 18-3, so I would think your poly schedule is coming soon. But again, its different for everyone. Poly has to be done first before background turns green on Cass because Poly is part of Background. Good luck

            Alright Hal29, our time has to be soon Haha. Looks like they’re moving on some of these background investigations.

        • For those of you who have reapplied midway through the process, how does it overall work on your end. I'm at 50% on cass and re applied. I was told since I took the exam after a certain date no further action on my end is needed and everything transfers and I will continue as usual.

            Plus I don't want to have to take the exam over again.


            How long does it take to transfer over? I've already been in this for 14 months. I would rather not extend it even longer than it needs to be. But sure would like to get dfw.

            Hal29 I took the exam again on Oct 12th, and within two weeks I got the NOR and TSL.

            and If I was a single man with no family, then I probably would've chosen one of the locations offered.

        • Background is officially cleared on the CASS app!

          So excited! I’ll let everyone know when they schedule me for the drug test. Enjoy your Sunday

            blackraiin If you hold an active TS from DoD that should have been waivable for CBP's clearance. Considering that they did the full scope of the SSBI now known as the Tier-5. You should've been cleared a lot faster than someone like I who only holds a secret clearance.

            Yes I hold an active TS from/with the DoD but apparently if one does not have the "SCI" caveat with that TS/SCI then one does not get an approval for that polygraph waiver. Now mind you that a person with that SCI caveat in the military holds a function on a military installation such as the actual POC for INFOSEC "or" working in a base's INTEL office (Is CBP wanting that pick of the litter?) And yes every company and/or agency wants the best candidates working for them. So in my opinion even if one is a veteran applying for this position, don't think about an overall expedited process for the masses of vets applying as it won't happen. Now don't get me wrong as a few vets WILL get the job in a shortened time frame as opposed to the greater amount of vets that are applying. I did apply for the waiver but was denied because I didn't posses that SCI caveat so here I am 26+ months later. micdrop451

            blackraiin Ah, gotcha. I'm tracking. The reason I said that was I thought you were MI in the Army as any 35series falls under the TS/SCI umbrella. Hence the reciprocity for BP. I think it's BS as personally I feel if you hold a TS in the military and a NAC, ESI, NAC on cohabitants/family and interviews have been done according to standards, that should have a lot of bearing when trying to lateral into the feds regardless of if the "SCI" caveat is given. That's of course if the Tier-5 has been done within the last 5 years and is active. And I get what you're coming from about some vets, but those that hold a TS and in a field of lets say for example a 35F in the Army, should obviously have his application expedited for the sole reason that he's looking at classified material that will be on the same level or probably even higher than what he will see at CBP. And I'm sure they do as I see some VRA's speed through this process due to their active clearances. I know the rules were changed in the past year or so due to this Administration's demand for more Agents/Officers.

        • 18-6....I am currently working for the Bureau of Prisons. I already have done a public trust background with them. My status as of now is 63%. Waiting BI and drug test. I applied for a Direct Hire spot but it says negotiable when selected. I am hoping for Atlanta or Dulles VA. Wondering since these was not offered at the time if I have a chance those?

            klocklear86, there is a very slim chance you will get Atl or Dulles, you can try and ask them during "the call", but most likely you won't get it. If you don't want to go to sw borders and only like those airports, I suggest you re apply to regular announcement, everything will transfer over to your new announcement, you are a 18-6 so you would have to retake entrance exam though. But I think reapply now is better than waiting for the call, turn it down and reapply then. At least the wait for new announcement starts now...
            Like N.N. said, lof of people were misled by "location negotiable", thinking that they can negotiate any location they want, yes, any location along sw borders. Good luck

            klocklear86 Everyone is correct. Best believe if you are a direct hire there is NO slim chance. Your chances are 0% that you can get anything other than the southwest ports.

            I was DH18-7 and when i got the call was when i found out its only negotiable along the south western ports. So i turned it down and reapplied. But as everyone is saying, if you want something outside of the DH then you might as well reapply now and get the exam out the way.

            Just apply to Regular announcement take the entrance exam and all your progress will be transferred to the Regular announcement within a month or so. You still have time if you still haven't met your BI. This way you will get all the locations that are available.

            Think twice before accepting the offer to SWB because it would be very difficult to transfer from there to somewhere else which will be more desirable if you won't be happy there.

              d2ep can you tell me a little more? Is this what you selected when you first applied, which port did they put you at? From what I’ve heard, it’s a really competitive and desired port, I’m hoping to stay close to home.

              I didn't select Detroit as for I never wanted it. I selected Dulles, VA and I got it. It all depends on your application which announcement you applied to. DH then only SWB, Regular then all the port that is available at the time of your call including SWB.
