  • Passed my BP SI this morning, I was the only one who showed up. The only thing that's closed is hiring office. The shutdown will cause things to slow down but the process will not come to a complete halt.

      I feel your pain brother, this weekend marks 7 months since my SI. They claim the reason my wait’s been so long is because my medical got delayed, but i know of plenty of people who were still under medical review and got their poly scheduled. Plus, it’s been almost 3 months since I received final medical clearance anyways. Then there’s people like you who were cleared almost immediately and are still waiting. I don’t think anyone really knows how it works lol. I’m convinced it’s basically a random lottery. No other explanation why some people get scheduled before they’ve even completed their SI and others of us are waiting around for a half a year or longer. It would make sense if it’s a lottery based system. Lol

  • Been at 75% complete on CASS for both VRA and DH. Background says in process. Anyone in the situation? Anyone know what to expect at 75%?

      If you took the drug test, you should be getting the call. Usually you get the call the same day or shortly after the drug test.

      I got placed in TSU the day i took my drug test and got the call 3 days later. The shutdown might be effecting you not getting the call already.

      From my own experience and from everything I read, they almost always only give the drug test right before hiring you

      Glad people still get to EOD, I’m sure that would be a challenge not knowing, particularly those who are ending employment elsewhere right before.

      N.N. been out of work for 3 months in order to be qualified for the location incentive "which at this moment its not looking good" hopefully onthe15th i receive my final offer.

  • Anyone who has took the Poly or knows how it works - how long it takes to get the results on the CASS App not just a verbal pass or fail. And was wondering if the results from the Poly are retrievable for Local Enforcement Employers or if its confidential, in case i fail i don't want it to hurt me with my current local law enforcement gig. Thanks in advance

      When you take the polygraph your examiner completes a case with results and sends those results to OPR for review they make the final decision on whether you pass or fail.

      For mine I got a verbal pass the day I took the test, a week later my examiner emailed me and told me I passed and will continue through the process.

      Another week later it went green on CASS and showed as completed.

      Also as far as being able to pull the results up, I dunno but it's not something I would try to hide anyway. Each Polygraph examine is different so I doubt it would be used against. It would however look extremely bad if you neglected to mention it and they find out themselves.

      RJ_Jersey I didnt take either or mine at Newark, I only did my SI at Newark. I did one poly at Deleware and my last one in New York.

      Time depends on your examiner and how many questions you get through and what they wanna ask you. My first polygraph was over in 3 hours but I had questions I had to answer and didnt even finish all the questions.

      The second one I took was over 4 hours and went completely smoothly and was over as soon as he asked the last question.

      So expect anywhere from 2-6 hours depending on examiner and how far you get.

      I took it in Newark and it was about 3 hours long with only one break. Other applicants who were there had 3 to 4 breaks so it depends on your examiner how he wants to go about it. Mine did told me I passed and that its up to QC to determine the final decision but in a week or so for me went green. Then a few days later he emailed me saying I passed.

  • Has anyone took the drug test with the fitness test or is that just something random they do at the medical clinic...I took mine the same day as the fitness test. 19-2 GS9...waiting on BI to clear. Currently with the BOP for 3 years. Thanks

      They do say the drug test is random and can happen at any point in the process, although I think for 99% of people, it's the last thing you do before your Final Offer. Congrats on getting it knocked out early!

      They say the drug test is "random" but from the majority of people including myself, the drug test ends up happening sometime after you complete everything else (or are given a provisional) and they are about to hire you. I dunno what is happening right now with the shutdown as far as giving new EODs out so you might just be waiting for the shutdown to end and then recieve a call who knows

  • Completed my SI and passed on 08/31/18, my medical is and has been all set. Just waiting on the Polly. I’m nervous that they will schedule it for May while I’m out of the country on a cruise... as they love to mess up people’s vacations. When they do schedule the poly do they give you dates to choose from or are they kind of like “our way or the highway.”?? They scheduled my pt test half way through vaca last year... although they were nice enough to move it to Jersey where I was on vaca. Just nervous cause I will be out of country. Thanks in advanced...

      If you are going to be scheduled then they will give you dates to choose from and locations I think. But if they call you as someone cancelled then you have to fill that spot it could be the next day or same day.

      @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!

      • 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

          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.
