      Sounds about right. Throughout the process whenever they have called me it was while I was at work or driving. If you call right back you end up having to leave a message too. It's frustrating.

      Greencomms yuppers thats what I had to do, I had a feeling I should of brought my phone in the bathroom with me because I figured it would happen then but I figured since the shower was gonna be short I'd be fine lol.

      I'm hoping they call back later today I told them Im free all day today and next week. If they don't that means I'm stuck waiting until Monday.

      I'm happy for ya. Now I gotta wait for my turn. Hopefully my background clears soon and I hear from tsu.

  • Does anyone know if answering yes on OF-306 question 14 (relatives working at the same agency, in this case, my dad works for CBP) can delay your hiring process after being put into TSU? My dad does not work at the same location I put in for, and he is not involved in the hiring process whatsoever.

    Edit: Update -

    Just got the call.

      Like if youre dad shows up late and has a bad attitude they will assume you can be that way. If he is a great worker and stuff they will assume you will be in the same foot steps

      Congrats!! I'm in Dulles, VA too! I leave for FLETC in February!

  • Just out of curiosity, do we have anyone here familiar with NY/NJ port authority? Is the work/day to day basis similar?

      Do you know how long it took for your BI to go green?
      I've done my entire process backwards,

      Took the poly, medical, structure interview, than drug test all in that order. Process for all 4 was within 3 weeks, than last week was told I was assigned a BI. I have a meeting with her on Friday to verify DL and citizenship,

      I am from the SoCal region as well.

        I applied on 10OCT2018, and my BI went green in the app on 26NOV2018. I never met anyone for the BI or talked with anyone about it. It went green on the same day that I received an approved polygraph waiver.

    • Has anyone taken the polygraph and told you passed verbally and taken a month or more to get the email stating that you passed??? I took my polygraph on November 9, 2018 and I still haven't received any email and my app states its still pending...

        Calitown Thats what I thought too and I have been seeing everyone get it within a week or two and even as yourself the very next day.. I called the CBP Frontline Hiring Center and they tell me that they have not received it yet without even asking me for my application ID as if they are just trying to not want to help or search it up.. What should I do or who should I contact as they also told me it can take up to 2 months?!

        CBPO.BPJ I was verbally told I passed when I took my polygraph.

        I got a NOR email about a week later from the test administrator telling me OPR accepted the results.

        Either the person who administered your test hasn't sent the results to OPR or they are still processing it.

        KevinMO91 yea... I just called them again just now and the gentleman who answered now actually asked me for my ID and he said they have not received. He stated once they review it they will send it to them and they will have an update but for the meantime I will have to wait... This is sooooo frustrating and I just want to know already when I'm starting! I also wonder if me letting my examiner about my Eqip needing update as when I was putting in my children I noticed I didn't add my sons that passed away. He informed me he will update my Eqip but never got their date of birth or their DOD...

    • Well, ended up making the Referral list for another Fed position today, non-LEO, much higher pay grade though. If I end up getting a Tenative Offer, I’ll probably withdraw from CBP. This agency is going to continue to lose quality candidates to other opportunities if they can’t figure out how to improve their hiring process. Just under 6.5 months since my SI and still haven’t heard a peep on the poly. I can’t wait around forever.

        I could be wrong on this, but I believe ATC is the highest paying non-management position in the Feds. I actually have a few family members who are ATC, they say it is stressful, but not as bad as people think. They’re entrance exam is pretty intense though, it basically seems like a stress management test. Lol

    • I got the call today! Or 2 calls whichever you wanna call it! Received offers from both CBPO as well as BP. I'm ecstatic as I have options, but am open to hearing opinions on which direction I should go! I'm excited but want to make sure I make the right call I guess you could say. Love to hear from everyone in regards to this. Thanks!

        Hal29 I cleared through background. KevinMO91 Glad you got the call today too! I'm sure they will call you again by Monday if they didn't call you again today. To be honest I missed the first call as I was on car duty (I'm a teacher). Luckily enough the other two calls came during my lunch time. I'm definitely looking at both sides and wanted opinions. Thanks for the input!

        if you are married talk to the wife, let her be informed. I wanted to do BPA but for my marriage i took CBPO lol she still wants me to stay in construction since the money is good and i get holidays off but CBPO was our negation for me to do something i enjoy and for her peace of mind.

        The choice is a bit like the movie The Matrix. You can choose to be plugged in and live the illusions of work satisfaction, belonging, and contentment within the BP. The downside is that nearly 90% of the BP works rural southern border. Basically, little interior living, few urban options on that path.

        You can choose to remain unplugged within OFO and experience a true dystopian existence while at work. The plus side..no Koolaid to drink and you can live outside of work in a real town or city.

        Those who typically define themselves by their job tend to appreciate the BP. Those who typically define themselves by family, friends, and non-work life tend to better fit within OFO.

        Hal29 from everything I read on this forum it really just depends on luck, and who you get doing your case. There's some people here that have pretty complex history with multiple employers and living in other countries and their stuff seemed to clear in only a few months.

        I didn't hear anything about my BI period and I already got the call.

        It's sucks seeing how the process seems to go for other people.

        Hal29- i get you're frustration, however you need to take a step back and breath man. The process sucks, its not fair and everything else we all get it. You are driving yourself crazy man, i see you checking in on everyone posting about their timeline but at the end of the day its making you crazy man. The only way to get through this process is just to forget about it and let it come to you.

        I understand the work environment sucks for you right now, and everyone in this process is passing you up while youre on final stretch of the hiring process. You will get there just sucks waiting for it man.

      • I just wanted to thank the moderator and posters on This forum because there is a stark contrast between this forum and Delphi. I browsed Delphi for a while
        just trying to find classmates and garner info but found that the Delphi forum was pretty snarky and nasty and chatty. Thanks everyone who participates and is able to keep their cool and their rude comments under wraps .

          Evolution81 fair enough, but I do believe that’s just part of the nature of Internet forums in general. For instance, on most professional sport team message boards, you’ll find 90% of the comments are people complaining about the team, 10% are positive when the team wins, but then people don’t talk about the team at all 95% of time time away from the message board. It’s just the ways of the internet.

          Delphi's CBPO forum used to be a great place and an excellent resource for both new applicants and current employees. Sadly, it has been taken over recently by trolls, bitter hypocritical former BP agents, bashing outsiders, and general negativism activists who have driven off most of the long-term CBPOs off the site. It's really a shame how the Delphi board has gone down the toilet.

          haha. I thought the same thing. The guy that runs that forum. He thinks he's God and talks bad about everyone. Well from what I observed. Not my cup of tea.

      • This is a random question I was just thinking about the other day, but I realized that about 50% of CBP officers seem to wear patch sets on their vests that say "CBP Federal Officer" while the other 50% have ones that read "POLICE US Customs and Border Protection." I'm assuming that since both are in use, it's the officer's preference as to which one you wear? Or is one simply being phased out for the other?

        Personally, I think the Police one makes more sense just from a visuals standpoint. Especially in this field where Officers are dealing with foreigners, "Police" is a much more universally known term. I bet the majority of people who come in contact with officers don't even know what CBP stands for.

          I have always preferred internal carriers in the winter. It's basically like wearing an insulated vest under the uniform. External carriers can also get caught up on a coat when donning and doffing the coat and just generally bulk a person more...especially if you add pouches and accessories to an external carrier.

          Plus, there is the head shot factor. Wear an obvious vest, perhaps influence a headshot when compared to wearing a vest concealed under the uniform shirt.

          I was issued both patch sets, at my Port its personal preference. I wear Police because 75% of the people I encounter think I work for Canada Border Patrol, even Americans...

      • Any other 18-9’s here? Where are you guys in the process? I did my SI at the end of August... still waiting for the Pilot.. I’m sure they are just waiting to schedule to screw up my vacation again this year.
