      Why you applying to a new announcement? Aren't you at the end? Unless your going for gs9. Everything will transfer over but will have to do the computer based exam over.

  • After 1 year 1 month they finally scheduled my Polygraph and I take it in 3 days. Nervous about it because it’s the last thing I need to pass other than the BI. Just reading horror stories of the poly makes me nervous about it but confident at same time.

      She reached out to me. Messed up on email details a couple times but talk to me as if we’ve known each other as friends.

      Just to clarify... 1 yr and 1 month since your tentative offer or 1 yr and 1 month since your SI?

      Applied in September of last year. Si In March, poly in May. Background in progress for 7 months now.

  • I am near the end, but the 17-11 didnt have JFK as a location, and the new one out right now does, so I figure I'll put in for this new one and have everything transfer over so when I do get the call I can chose JFK

      Just a heads up, I haven’t experienced it myself, but have heard from others if you re-apply and it’s been over a year since your PFT, Medical, or Drug Test, they sometimes make you re-do them.

      That is what is keeping me from re-applying. I really dont want to do any steps over. The time, energy or expenses isn't worth it to me. Plus to have to wait even longer for things to clear. I'm allset.

      JonRob If you have a Regular announcement active, you can ask for JFK, they are offering ports available at the time of "the call" and so far JFK has been available on a few announcements so you may lucky and get that when they call you, if you ony have a DH, reapply for a regular, in about 2 months (mine transferred in 1.5 month) , everything will transfer over, if you are not GS9, you will need to retake entrance exam,

      Medical was almost last thing for me to clear due to VA disability letter. I had to send paperwork in for signed off by a doctor. Was the hardest part to get through. Once cleared took UA again and then a month or so later got the call.

  • Good news. I've been watching the news on my day off. It seems there will most likely not be a government shutdown. Trump says he wants to work with Congress because it will affect to many jobs this close to the holidays and can find other means to get the 5+ billion dollars he needs to beef up border security and the wall. Right now congress offered 1.6 billion just for border security. He wants beef up security so he can get the military out of there as they are on a short term contract.

      Well let's just say it cost me over 400 dollars to go through all this. Gas, parking, new shirt and tie, pants. And the days I took off plus the ot I lost. My ot goes to comp time if I miss days.

  • Sadly I was just told that anyone currently in the process will not hear anything until well after the holidays. Classes are booked till the end of May and they don't plan on openning June classes until current classes are complete. So those that are like me and been waiting 16+ months. Well we are looking at 2 years of more in the process. Also majority of applicants going through are newer appllicants. They are trying to fix things. Unfortunately I'm drawing towards the end. I'm giving it another month. But I feel it may be time to move on. I know the process takes time but that is rediculous. I'm 38 I'm not waiting forever.

      Well I hate seeing stuff like this. I hate seeing us in limbo for so long. The process is disorganized. What kills me is we put in a lot of time, effort and more. I'm happy for anyone who gets through. But I'm out case we put our time in on the process we got through all the hurdles. It drives me nuts seeing others who get through in less than half the time we put in. It's like they treat us as if we are less important or to much effort to reach out for our files because it is just easier to get through a new applicant.


      Well anyways best of holidays and wish you all well. I'll be spending the next few weeks focusing on the family and holidays.

      Just one or thing. Look at my two posts where I copied two emails. One says booked till April the other says till the end of May. Those emails are week and a half apart. That is how fast those classes are filling up.

      Hal29 ... don’t get discouraged. I am sure if you speak to 3 people you’ll probably get three different answers. You’ve waited this long ... don’t give up now. I’ve been in this process from Aug/Sept of 2016 and a VRA applicant at that where it is supposed to be streamlined. There’s been moments where I’ve felt hopeless and I still feel because it seems that I can’t reach the finish line (and at this moment “the finish line” is getting “the call”). Keep holding and having the faith.

  • VRA 17-2 here ... did my drug test last Tuesday and my medical (again) yesterday. My initial medical was November 2016 so I’m guessing it expired. Now I’m just waiting to for those updates to reflect on CASS and then get scheduled for my PFT-2. I am wondering if I can get that waived by submitting my military PFT scores as I made a call to the PFT-2 scheduling unit/dept and left a message and I’m hoping to hear back from them sometime today.

      blackraiin oh that sucks, you should of reapplied to a newer posting, they transfer everything over doing an extra PFT is just more time wasted before you get hired. sucks they still make older applicants do it even though it's been removed.

  • I got the TSU letter!!!
    Hopefully they call with an offer soon.

      Congrats to you. Just curious what announcement are you?

  • Hey all,

    I applied to this posting last week, and just got my tentative selection notice that I have 3 days to accept. https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/517267300/

    It was listed as "Location Negotiable After Selection", and so far I haven't seen anywhere listing possible locations (aside from the ones in the announcement that have incentives). So it looks like I just need to go through the whole process, and I pretty much won't have any ideas until I'm at the end? Or will I get to put in some preferences early on?

      As a VRA applicant you'll be able to request where you wanna work, they'll call the port and see if the port has any openings if it does they will offer it to you. They will start with a list of critical ports and then ask you what you want. I asked for Newark and got Newark.

      Awesome, thanks. I'm in Delaware, I know my chances of Wilmington are probably pretty low, but I'd assume there would be a decent chance for Philly. I'd even be good with Newark, my parents live near there so I could stay with them on work days and then drive home when I'm off.

    • Well, this weekend will mark 200 days since my Structured Interview with still no end in sight with the wait for my poly... I'm sure there's a handful of people who've waited this long between these 2 steps, but probably not many. The frustration is pretty real at this point.

        JMontero well I’ve never done anything that would warrant failing a poly, so I’m not worried at all about actually taking it. only way I’d get a fail is if I end up being one of the unfortunate ‘horror stories.’ Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen

        N.N. I was in the same place as you i took my SI back in May and passed had to submit additional paperwork for medical and it finally cleared in June. On December 11th I got the email that my poly was scheduled for the following Tuesday. The last time I had called CBP they told me it would be 3 to six months after my medical clears until I get to schedule my poly. The only thing now holding people back is the shutdown hopefully they resolve it quick and the processes can pick back up. Just hang in there I was at a point the I thought it would never happen, but it did when I leased expected.

    • Polygraph scheduled for Jan 21st!

        JMontero sadly it's true if the government shuts down you wont be going to the Academy until it reopens when I got the call I actually asked them this question and the shutdown could very well push a lot of academy dates back
