      I'm thinking about applying for gs9 regular announcement. At this point how much Longer could they actually make me wait
      Question to those who reapplied. If I apply does it cancel out my current application, even if I don't get it?

      Hal29 if you have different type of announcements (Regular, DH, VRA) and/or GS pay, it won't cancel out, everything will transfer over, if you don't get selected, you will still have the one that you got selected.

      I'm DH and my process has been at a good pace but now that my BI came its awkward and the question of everyone asking when is getting annoying so now I'm at the point where I just want to know.

  • Hey guys I'm new here as well. I applied to the 18-13 CBPO Location Negotiable Announcement, I chose Laredo, TX. So far I am waiting for Medical to clear before they schedule me for the Polygraph. After reading on here, I see that it is going to take some time as I have had a few surgeries in the past that I listed lol. It has been a little over a month since the last part of the process I completed, which was the Structured Interview.

    I spoke with a woman at the applicant center and she said it appears that they are going through the Preliminary Background Investigation, which takes some time, but I should be hearing back soon. I did mention the Medical and she didn't think there was anything strange with it. I don't care either way, I want this badly so I will be waiting patiently!

    10/17/18 Tentative Selection Letter

      N.N. apparently I have been slapped with the medical curse as well. I just resubmitted the "additional info", you're absolutely correct, just paperwork that needs to be signed off on, stating you are good to go. Fractured my hand 3 times, twice right hand, once left hand, more than 17 years ago and it still raised a flag. Here's to hoping the process will start moving again..

      Gh3isT I can't for the life of me understand why they waste taxpayer dollars to send us to a medical exam where we're examined by MD's if they make you go have another doc sign off on any previous issues anyway. It is absolutely ridiculous. In your situation, heck even a nurse could tell that your hands are fine. It's so stupid, and a complete waste of everybody's time and money.

      Absolutely, the doctor that examined me that was taxpayer funded, had already told me that I am good to go. As I'm sure you guys have noticed at the medical exam, they go over each injury/surgery in the past and ask you questions related to them. And sign off on them.

    • Gh3isT
      Gh3isT commented

      Crazy part about waste of time and money is that it was at my own expense! $600 later to give me an answer I already know is insane. So much for insurance...lol..c'est la vie I guess!

  • Coming up on 4 Months since my SI and I'm slowly growing frustrated. Everything cleared quickly but now I'm stuck in the never ending polygraph scheduling hole. I emailed them a few weeks back and never received a reply. Maybe I'm just being a baby but I hate Houston and need to get out of here ASAP.

      • Hey all, I’m new here, like so many others. Unlike many in this process, I have never spoken with a CBP recruiter and do not know any, so any and all information is appreciated. I applied for CBPO VRA GS-9 19-1 on 10/10/2018. Status so far in the CBP Jobs app is as follows:

        EQIP – Completed
        Fitness Exam – In Progress (Passed it 12/05/2018.)
        Medical Exam – Completed
        Structured Interview – Completed
        Polygraph – Pending (I have an approved waiver as of 11/26/2018)
        Background Investigation – Completed
        Drug – In Progress (Performed 11/28/2018 and awaiting update)
        Fitness Exam 2 – N/A
        Final Offer – Pending

        For anyone that may be in the know, regarding a polygraph waiver, do I still have to wait for them to schedule the polygraph even though my waiver was approved? What sort of time frame do people often see before their status is updated after performing the Drug or Fitness exam? Does anyone have an educated guess on an expected time frame for me from here before I can move forward?

          I thought I moved through the process fast at 4 months. I got put into TSU yesterday (same day I took the drug test)

          You should be getting put in TSU or straight up getting the call very soon. They usually only do the UA when they're about to give you the call. You'll def be the fastest turn around on here at either alittle over 2 months or 3

          evolution he is a vet that put in the time and had a waiver for poly, that means he has or has had a TS clearance. So he already had a crazy BI already thats why his process streamlined so quick

          They wanted more paper work about my back and how it healed, I didnt have alot of paperwork since i let it heal on its own and didnt go to a doctor.

          I had a tear disk and 2 buldge disk from the Army, they could not do surgery since it was high risk. The doctor stated, it will heal over the next 2 years but you have to be light on it and work out at you're pace. I discharge out of the Army stop going to the VA, i started working out lightly. Every day i worked out, my job was a work out but my body healed over a year and a half. I had to type up a report on how i made the recovery and what i do on a day to day basis so they can evaluate me. That paperwork took 14.5 weeks by its self to clear.

      • So I emailed Medical review yesterday, this is what I ggot:

          No tips on the VA i just know you can use it. Last time i used it for a little bit it was real simple, sign in using VA benefits select on the job training fill out the paperwork and they will call you. Make sure you use the OJT (on the job training) they pay out is over a 2 year pay out. if you used some of it they will shrinkin the length to compensate. I will call them next week. i just remember it took a month or 2 for them to pay out when i went to a trade school. They want to verify that you show up and actually attend.

Hopefully, now that they have the paperwork and its processed I'm closer to the call. I'm 110% certain I received a provisional clearance as well.
