      I'm waiting at the same step in the process. Even had to find my application ID myself through the CBP mobile site, since they haven't sent that email yet.

  • I received my final selection letter from TSU this morning. My EOD is in 2 weeks at JFK Airport

      KevinMO91 Yes the people I will be reporting to is on the offering letter with their contact numbers. I haven’t contacted them yet since the email mentions to wait over 24 hrs before contacting them. I’ll do it end of the week.

      @Ozonewarrior2016 I have bad news, this was posted today in the other forums on Delphi

      "Hi everyone. I just received my Final offer letter. I have picked JFK airport as my Port Station. I have contacted my Port of station regarding my report date and time. I was told that currently based on the government shutdown everything is being postponed. If any one have any other information regarding EOD dates being postponed at JFK please send me a private message"

      TonyJones I'm VRA, been in the process for over a year. Medical itself has been 8 months and counting. VRA is nothing special.

  • It was a VRA announcement, not sure the number of the top of my head. I just retired from the military in May and already had a TS. I got my Poly waived and Pt test.

      Ahh I gotcha, VRA is typically supposed to be expedited, it rarely seems to work out that way though. Glad you got through it how it’s intended though. Congrats brother!

  • The announcement I applied for was the VRA 18-6

      • Long time reader, first time poster. I was part of announcement 18-5 and it has been 24 weeks since I've submitted additional information for my medical review. Has anyone else experienced this much of a delay with the medical review? I know things are backed up but 6 months seems excessive. For those who have had to wait a long time, is there any remedy other than to keep waiting?

        Thanks

          Thanks for the input everyone, I wasn't under the impression that I was the only one waiting a long time but it gives me a better idea of how long the potential wait could be.

          i waited from 12-2017-05-2018 before medical review was accepted

      • Today marks a year I have been in this process I’ve decided to give it a few more months and if I don’t hear anything I am just going to withdraw my app and pursue other things. I have stayed put because I don’t want to complicate the BI even more but I just can’t continue to wait this long. It’s what I have always wanted to do is to work for the government.

      • Does anyone know if TSU is furloughed during this time? I know people have gotten their final offer e-mails but was thinking maybe those are sent out automatically.

          I don't think anyone really knows to what extent the shutdown is effecting the Hiring Process. I had one Recruiter tell me everything is basically 100% halted until funding is enacted. Another told me that just MHC is closed, but other appointments/steps are continuing. Some people have gotten things scheduled, others have had things cancelled. Some people have been told EODs are still happening, others have been told they're delayed. It's really all over the map. That's kind of the Hiring Process is general though (not just during the shutdown). You talk to two different "officials" and get two completely different, often contradictory, answers.

          That's CBP as a whole, where even the best answers are only 95% right...90% of the time...in 85% of circumstances.

          As far as OFO recruiters go, unless things have changed recently, virtually all OFO "recruiters" are part-timers with little/no formal training in recruiting. At least with those working the field that the average person is likely to meet at any local outreach event. The national/regional guys accessible by email might be different.

          At best, you're probably seeing well-meaning people with different backgrounds and experiences answering questions based on the odd agency issued handbook and gut instinct.

          merlin436 haha yes. It is unfortunate that recruiting/hiring has been such a focus point in recent years, but the recruiting network is seemingly still provided with little to no resources to actually be of any assistance to applicants beyond saying “call the hiring center.” The Hiring Center is a different case all together though, that’s a staff that’s supposedly solely dedicated to the hiring process, although it seems a pretty regular occurrence where they don’t know the answer to certain questions, or just provide generic copy/paste responses that don’t contain any actual information. Probably the biggest inconsistency I’ve experienced is with answers surrounding polygraph scheduling. Some “officials” have said you absolutely cannot be scheduled until after your medical clears, others have said you can. Some have said the average wait is 8-12 weeks, other have said it’s upwards of 6 months or longer. In my case, I’ve been waiting over 7 months. All the recruiters I’ve talked to have said that seems abnormal and have tried reaching out on my behalf, but can’t get any kind of specific update. When you ask the Hiring Center, they say they don’t deal with the polygraph and don’t know anything about it and you need to reach out to CAD in OPR for info. Well then you try emailing/calling CAD and you can’t get even a single response. It’s literally as if nobody knows what’s going on, or how to find out. Meanwhile it seems like some of us have just been lost in the shuffle and are up the creek without a paddle...

          Well idk if it’s automatic message or what. But I received my final letter on the 8th of January. Today Thursday I received about 2 calls from about my EOD.

      • Longtime lurker and thought I'd start posting in here. Passed my SI the end of November, waived my PT because I did a military PT test within the last year. Did my medical and the doc said I passed the week before Christmas.

        • Some of you had called it, My Poly for tomorrow has been cancelled due to the shutdown. I guess my examiner had more faith in the government than the most of us and thought it would've reopened by tomorrow. poor guy has a long career ahead of him if he thought it was going to reopen under a week

            Dang, sorry to hear brother, that’s a major bummer. Seems weird that they would continue scheduling just based on “hope” that the govt. would be re-open in time.

            Well at least your poly isn't until the end of the month, there's still a chance they can get the Govt. re-opened by then. Although it seems neither side is wanting to budge at the moment...

        • Hello Everyone,

          Quick questions: With a full year experience as NYC Correction Officer, are you qualified for GS 9 position?
          if yes, do you have to provide documentations for prove of eligibility when applying or you bring them afterwards?

          Thank you all!

            Good Question. I am a BOP Correctional Officer and I qualified for the GS9 spot simply because I am currently a GS7 officer. IDK about other DOC agencies though. Even though I'm sure you have the same work experience that I have. If I was you I would apply to both the GS5 and the GS9 spot. That away you'll be covered on both ends. B_N

            Education Substitution: Two full years of graduate level education (equivalent to 36 semester credits or 54 quarter credits) in a field of study related to law enforcement (e.g., criminology, criminal justice, law enforcement, courts and judicial systems, corrections and rehabilitation, justice studies, homeland security, forensic technology and forensic psychology) at an accredited college or university; OR

            Will complete two full years of graduate-level education (equivalent to 36 semester or 54 quarter credits) within 9 months from the closing date of this announcement in a field of study related to law enforcement (e.g., criminal justice, homeland security, justice studies, law enforcement, courts and judicial systems, forensic technology, forensic psychology or corrections and rehabilitation) from an accredited college or university and will upload all official or unofficial transcripts before the closing date of this announcement; OR

            Combination of Experience and Education: A combination of graduate level education completed in a field of study related to law enforcement (e.g., criminology, criminal justice, law enforcement, courts and judicial systems, corrections and rehabilitation, justice studies, homeland security, forensic technology and forensic psychology) at an accredited college or university AND specialized work experience.

            So There is a good chance I could qualify as well. I have two years experience as juvenile correctional officer with the state of texas, 60 credits in criminal justice and 5 years experience with inport and exported goods.

            Does it cancel out current process for gs7? I'm almost complete.

          Unfortunately DOC is not classified as a sworn police officer position. Last time someone asked they was told no because as a correction officer you are classified as a peace officer.
