  • Hello my fellow applicants,

    I need your advice. I'm a 18-9 regular announcement and currently waiting for poly. I'm from Los Angeles but when I applied, LA isn't available, so I chose San Francisco instead. But now I just noticed LA is open up again. I really want LA so do you guys think I should reapply for LA, or should I wait til I get the call and negotiate with the hiring team?

    Any advice and suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!

      SimpleLifeCA Good afternoon, I spoke with a recruiter... I was advised to reapply for the location I really wanted if it is in the recent announcement. It may slow down your process but all your info will be carried over from your previous announcement

      18-9 here too, waiting on the Polly as well

  • Yea I wouldn’t go through the hassle of reapplying if you applied to a regular announcement that said “location negotiatable”. They list cities that are more likely to have openings at the time of your final offer but in all honesty your final offer could be anywhere from 5 months-almost 2 years. There is no telling what will be open then so as long as you didn’t apply to DH then simply ask for which place you want when they called. I was 17-10 location negotiable
    and there were all the places I’ve never even heard of lol then got nervous when 18-3 came out and offered queens (jfk). I didn’t reapply but when they called and offered me
    tons of locations I just spoke up and asked if JFK was available and they said “sure we can do that”.

      What places did they offer that wasnt on the current announcement?

  • Places in California and Arizona that I’ve never rreally heard of and im sure she would
    have offered more if I didn’t stop the conversation and sau
    that I live in NY and want to stay there. All of us applciants
    have to realize that it’s CBP job to get officers to critical
    location so of course they will mention and push those locations but it’s our job as potential employees to ask for the most convenient locations for us and our families. Never hurts to ask for what you want

    • Since they moved over to this new system, has anyone received an email like this? And could you tell me what to expect?

        By the way, what do you mean they moved to a new system. Everything seems the same to me.

        Hal29 previously they would send you emails with forms that you need to sign and send back... but now they made it easier to do.. They assign you a task and you do it on the USA STAFFING website...

        I guess my call is coming again soon because last time when they emailed me about filling out the OF-306, I received the call two days later after filling it out and sending it back to them.. and thats the task I had to complete today..

    • Has anyone taken the medical exam recently for CBPO? Is there a depth perception portion to the exam, because the website does not mention it. However, it does mention it for Border Patrol.

        Did it today. Yes there is a depth perception portion. The whole exam only took around 15 minutes, I was surprised it was that fast.

        It only took you a day to get an email back with a confirmation? I took my 2nd poly last Wednesday and was verbally told I passed. I'm still waiting on a confirmation email.

        Evolution81 interesting, all my examiner told me was that I passed and that he would pass the results up as far as time he said it could be a week to months. I'm really hoping to hear something this week.

          It’s 89 work days (ie not including weekends/holidays). All in all just around 4 months without Spanish.

      • Question...

        I applied for BPA DH 18-10. I'm waiting my medical to clear after having to see the optometrist and also for my polygraph to be scheduled.

        I'm about to be reassigned to day shift at my current job. Have any of you been scheduled for a poly, SI, or any other exam and not been able to attend?


        I'm curious if they will work with you in rescheduling to a date that will work. I'm scared to death that I'm going to be scheduled for my polygraph on a day that I work since I'm going to day shift. I'm about five months in now and I REALLY want to get hired!

          When I was scheduled for my polygraph I was given a few different dates to choose from. Most of the time they email/call you about two weeks in advance so you have time to make travel preparations if you need too.

      • so do we do math problems during FLETC? asking for a friend. lol

          Sure don't. There may be one or two times you use math incidental to some other problem but there's nothing math specific. The only time I've used math on the job is to calculate duty on imported cars and liquor. Which is good considering I'm math challenged.

            How long from when you applied to when you got the Call? Did they call you before you BI was set was done or after? I'm still waiting for Polygraph results to change, I was told I passed so holding out hope. Im interested to see what EOD and FLETC dates you get

        • I took my medical exam and email came back requesting additional info for my vision portion.. I went to retake my vision test and my results came back 20/150 uncorrected (without my glasses) submitted the results and still awaiting finalization from the med dept.. Wondering if anyone knows my chances of getting cleared especially since the requirement is 20/100 and im looking at 20/150 for both eyes.. not far off but not quite there.

            I was disqualified because my uncorrected is 20/200. My corrected (using contacts) is 20/20 and I pleaded but still got disqualified. I got LASIK and I reapplied. Every applicant varies. Some guy in this thread said that he had 20/300 in one eye and he is currently in the academy. So, it's honestly up to Med Review on whether or not they'll allow you to continue. Good luck!!

          • Hello, yesterday I received a call from 9528572900. CBPO officer called to ask some questions about me (Single, Married...etc.) and if (DH or Regular Announcement) and if I had any questions about the remaining part of the process. Is this common? I've been reading the forum since I started and I haven't seen any mention of this.
