      collapse okay, so it took about a month for them to reach out to you and close the BI hopefully I hear something by next week then. I'm trying to hold out hope I can make the April FLETC but given how long this process has taken everyone else Im not too hopeful.

      Yeah, on 10/29 they emailed me to resubmit the eqip by 11/3, they also said in the email to email them when I did resubmit to expedite.

  • Does anyone know if CBP officers have to pay into their pension?

      It's actually the upgraded federal retirement plan. Standard FERS has a person working 30 years until Minimal Retirement Age and collecting 1% each year until retirement.

      I believe regular employees pay 4.4% however, LEOs including CBPOs pay 4.9%.

  • My process has been very fast for some reason, applied for the Gs-9 and have taken the SI/DrugScreen/Poly all within this month of Nov.

      BK1893 That's not a bad timeline, just under a year. If it wasn't for the exam and depth perception test issue you most likely would have flown through it. I'm waiting for any kind of info on my BI it's been about a week since I got NOR for polygraph and I haven't gotten anything to resubmit e-qip yet. Hoping to hear something in December would be a nice Christmas present to get through the BI and drug test magically before January.

      so like around 3 months for BI to clear, I'm getting myself ready to another 3 months or so of wait. I'm 18-3 and my BI just wrapped up this week and its being submitted, although I'm not VRA or DH , Im regular announcement , i hope the wait time is not that much different.

      I have a choice between Seattle Washington, LAX, San Fran, Boston, Hawaii, and a few others. What made you select Seattle?

  • raudy06 I was really surprised that my BI cleared as fast as it did. Within the last 5 years, I lived abroad (visited 16 countries) and resided in two states with 3 different employers. I really think it all depends on your BI investigator and adjudicator. Btw, thanks for the date correction. I'm the guy that will write 2018 3 months into the new year. I better tighten up.

      Wow more extensive than mine. I've only lived in 2 states with 4 jobs in 21 years of employment.

  • My recruiter just contacted me and said the hold ups are do to the academies being full up to April. She is sending an inquiry to opr for me. Let's see what is said.

      I agree. I asked the same question. We will see what is said. It almost seems spots are reserved possibly for vra' s, maybe later applicants or maybe people failing on a provisional or resigning their applications. There is no ryhme or reason to the process.

      Hal29 Did they say that the April academy is full already or the ones up to April? Either way it does seem like a weird reason to hold up BI's and other things and I think some people have already been scheduled past April so I couldn't see what the hold up would be....

    • Hal29

      They said up till April but I don't put much stock into it. People are being scheduled for academy all different times. Some this year, some in March and April and all the way to may. Not sure how that would affect bi's though.

      Nope, I'm 18-8, 50% completed, BI is taking the longest since that was the most troublesome in my process. I think I MAY hear back for a poly once that's completed, although I heard a soft back ground check is all you needed to initiate the process. I took my SI at the beginning of Sept. They told me that I'll hear back for a poly in 4-6 weeks, it's Dec. now. Planning on speaking with someone but not sure how or where to contact.

      JPOL from what I've seen they dont seem to actually start the BI until after you do the polygraph. Since people seem to get emails to resubmit their eqip and start talking to investigators after that point.

      The CBP website has contacts for recruiters so you could try reaching out to which ever one is assigned to your state

      KevinMO91 18-8 as well, a few of us tried emailing the recruiters in our state & they can't provide any info. We took SI in July/August with no peep since.

  • Now im worried, i just checked my mobile cbp app, and my application is gone, its showing nothing, i was 18-8 vra at 38% waiting for my additional info to get approved

      KevinMO91 sounds like you being fresh and on your way out the military helped. I’ve been out for 5 yrs, they offered me the waiver for the PT test. I emailed them to inform them I have been out for sometime now. Never heard back. I had a Ssgt in the Marines monitored me. He signed the form for me, I sent it in. No problem.

      Later they email me informing me that I had to take their PT test. I was annoyed they waited almost 1 month from when I sent it. But what are you going to do? That step test wasn’t easy lol.
      Congrats on hitting your EAS soon. I am sure they have no reason to not hire you.

      1RidgeRunner7 Well hopefully I get some kind of EOD this week I'd be happy either way. Yeah I'm actually kinda happy I didn't do the step test when I did my SI in Newark a lot of people were complaining about it and one guy said some chick failed the test while he was there, I don't think I would fail it but it would definitely of been annoying

  • I had my interview today and it went well. Cool group of people. They said poly is backlogged, so it could be some weeks before getting one.

  • Does anyone know what the shifts are like at JFK? I keep hearing either 6 on 2 off or 5 on 2 off 5 on 3 off? Which one is it? Also if its 6 on 2 off, do you get a 3 or 4 day weekend every 6th week or something like that?

      I have never worked JFK, but most large ports like JFK have multiple types of work schedules, largely based on seniority.

      The 6 day schedules I have worked give a 3 day weekend every 5th and 6th rotation.

    • I am 18-8, spoke with a recruiter that redirected me to the CBP "help" line. Spoke with a kind sir and was told that Polygraph wait time is dependent on your location and availability of examiners. I took the Structured Interview early in September, was told to wait 4-6 weeks for the polygraph, but it's been nearly 3 months now with no responses from any point of contact. I am from the NYC/Newark area, to my knowledge there's examination sites at Newark/Jfk/Valley Stream, all seemed to be booked. From the response of the receptionist, it seems that this wait time for polygraphs (in the Greater Metro Area) is about 3-4 months long, anything over 5 months is abnormal and you should probably call in to see what's going on. For my background investigation, they have their own independence with no oversight from any department so that will be random and also takes a while.

      tldr: If you live around the NYC area, waiting for the polygraph is going to be around 5 months due to the high volume of applicants. Also, academy dates aren't "classes" per se, but availability based on course curriculum availability.

      Hope this info helps answers some questions.

        Another thing to be aware of
        If you are a NY applicant is that BI takes longer Bc the investigators don’t want to deal with NY(that’s what my investigator told me). I’m 17-10 and signed provisional . Only met with my bi in October of this year and still hasn’t cleared. Luckily I was given an EOD regardless of the slow BI.

    • anybody here from 18-3 waiting for BI to clear? my last meeting with investigator was last Monday. I texted him today to see if he needed anything else and he said 'Nothing further on my part, Thank You''. so I'm assuming he submitted my report to OPR. Im not VRA or DH so I'm thinking 2-3 more months because that's what i have seen here but i hope I'm wrong and its faster, i know it depends a lot too on how lengthy your background is. It would be a hell of a Christmas gift to get cleared for the holidays.
