      Even if it's only 3 weeks I'll take it.

  • Anyone here 19-2 and waiting on medical? I was prior VRA 17-10 and failed medical there. Will that medical carry over?

      What caused you to fail medical?

      Sort of beating a dead horse on myself, I failed my hearing. I gave a medical waiver with tons of positive performance reports, duties that I have done in service with my "hearing loss", and all that j***. They still deemed it not passable.

      How bad was your hearing? I had to submit additional medical for hearing and military disability. I'm also VRA.

  • Hi everyone,

    What is your opinion on this government shutdown and it being reopened now? Do you think our applications will be forgotten or pushed to the end of the pile or would they continue where they left off at?

      You would hope they would just pick up where they left off and kick things into overdrive to try and catch up with all the people who applied during the shutdown. Unfortunately though, knowing how this process generally seems to operate and given the fact the shutdown may resume, I could see a scenario where the hiring folks come back to work and just shuffle papers around for 3 weeks before a long-term solution (or not) is reached.

      Should be starting on where they left off if you ask me.

  • Has anyone noticed or had it occur where one day you check into the app and shows your current test completed but then the next day shows (in progress?) Yesterfay I checked the app to see if they updated my status on my polygraph. It showed completed and my overall completion was 63%. Now I checked today and it shows my EQIP back (in progess) when yesterday it showed completed and has shown completed for 11 months now.

      I received my tsl I believe end of September beginning of October. I completed my pft beginning of October and my medical passed in November. By December I was at 33%. March I took my si and April took my first poly and may 2nd poly. I've been at 63% for 8 months now. Hence the reason I've been in the process for 16 months. I recertified my equip in June 2018. Met no investigator September 2nd. Been waiting for adjudication since.

      CBPO.BPJ Not applicable you're a new applicant unless you have a current CBPO or BP application already. I only have 1 app of each & sit at 50% complete on both.

      CBPO.BPJ Apply it won't cancel out your CBPO application. They are different agencies & you will get two separate calls. If you accept CBPO in the end then will it cancel out the BP app but not before "The CALL"

      No I'm processing with both now. E-Qip, Medical, poly, background & drug test will transfer over. PFT-1, SI & entrance exams are different.

      I had 4 applications out, 2 for CBPO, 2 for BPA (they were both DH and VRA applications. I can tell you they dont cancel nothing out. BPA actually help your process speed up. Every cal i got was for BPA never CBPO. BPA offered me a job and i told them i wanted to see all my options before i took BPA. BPA hiring made CBP call me.

  • Crossing my fingers they can get my e-QIP process started.

    Heard nothing back since 12/19, finished onboarding credentials but nothing since then.

    Let's hope in these next 3 weeks we'll move forward.

    Anyone else 19-2? What's your status?
    CBPO 19-2

      I'm 19-2 as well but took my written at the tail end of scheduling. I finished onboarding 12/19 and haven't heard anything since. It's Monday, a couple days after the shutdown is reopen temporarily and no e-mail to start anything. I haven't got a notice to even started my e-QIP.

      Am I suppose to get a separate e-mail to start my e-QIP?

      SPX I received an email to complete my eQuip a few days after I applied. I don't know if it's bc I qualified as a GS-9?

      Maybe it has something to do with our home location? I've read other states move much faster than NY. (I'm in NY)

      Nevertheless, you should contact the hiring center tomorrow, but I'm sure they're being bombarded with millions of queries.

      Hopefully you hear something soon!


      I'll keep you updated when I hear something on my end.

      Briscora If you don't mind, where are you located?

  • For those of you who were to EOD anytime during the recent shutdown and actually received the official final offer letters to do so, have you guys been indeed entering on duty at your home ports and attending the pre-academy all in accordance with your original dates?

    I understand some people on here have been saying all pre-academy and FLETC sessions are happening as originally planned regardless of the shutdown but I have also seen some posts saying after receiving their final offer letters and contacting their home ports for reporting instructions, they were told that pre-academy was being delayed at the moment due to certain employees being furloughed.

    Please share your progress and/or outcomes regarding this matter since I need some very solid information to prepare for my upcoming EOD during another potential shutdown, thank you.

  • Hey guys any tips for running the 1.5 mile ?

      You just run. A 10 minute mile should be fairly easy to hit. But you need to run more than 1.5 miles when you train. Like Lucky said, make it your goal to run about 3 miles or farther and the 1.5 will be easy.

      Couch to 5K is a good starter running program.
      There are several other similar programs that are designed to get a person from a novice to running 3-plus miles in 8-12 weeks. Google search for them.

      Run everyday. Just do what you can and commit. Eventually you'll get better. I'm down to 6 min miles 3 miles a day on my lunch break at work. Trust me, didn't start that way. I could barely run a 1/4 straight when I started. Same with swimming, could do 50 meters without feeling like I'm gonna die. Now I swim 1500 meters straight for time... the answer is consistency and preserverance. Little bit everyday adds up. No one sees the struggle just the end result. So make the end worthwhile.

      Like all people said, keep running and practicing, I'm in that process too, I'm only able to run 1mile 10 mins, but after 11 mins, I'm out, ... I need to practice more, hopefully, by my EOD in 2020, I can pass their requirements.

    • I'm guessing some recruiters are still furloughed? I tried to email my recruiter to see if they were going to continue with the hiring process and what was going on. I got an automatic reply saying they will contact me once the shutdown is over. I mean seriously.

        The government is 100% open at this point, nobody should be furloughed. I'm assuming your guy just hasn't turned off his automatic replies on his email.

    • I understand some people received “verbal” passes for their polygraphs. From your experiences, approximately how long did it take for an official email with results? I know it has to go to QC first, but I was just curious. Thanks!

      • Just curious, I received an email today from USA Staffing advising I had to complete some “on boarding tasks”, it was just some basic info.

          In CASS, your case manager should be the one sent you the first email for Eqip, his email, phone should be still there. what the heck man, you are flying thru like nothing? What is your secret? Did you apply at hiring expo or apply online? WindyCityGuy ,
