  • Anyone have any idea of what academy dates are looking like for the coming year? I know I've seen Feb tossed around a few times.

      Not exactly sure because from reading I thought classes were filled through May-June. I'll read up on that some more.

      Filled up to may and they are working on June classes right now. Hope bi clears soon. It's been over 5 months now. Not to many 17's left here.

      May, june.

      I was given a June date at first. After the shutdown they informed me that they had some in may. I would assume each month has vacancies though.

  • Those who are getting/got a provisional on their background..when did you get offered the provisional?

    I’m done with everything besides my background, which is still pending. They sent me on boarding paperwork last Monday. I’m wondering if my background will have to clear before I hear anything.

      Nobody really knows how provisional works and who qualifies/doesnt qualify for it. Basically if you do quality, you'll just randomly get "The Call" out of the blue one day lol. Your timeline is pretty awesome though. You've literally almost made in through the entire process in half the time I've been waiting for just the polygraph lol.

      I got hired on a provisional, they didnt tell me I got one or anything like that, I just ended up doing the drug test about 2 weeks after the poly, I got placed in TSU the same day I took the Drug test and got the call later that week on a friday.


      In your case, if you already had the BI started and met the investigator then you didnt get a provisional clearance they would give it to you before you start your BI

      KevinMO91 not accurate, I ended up getting the call with a provisional and I had met the BI investigator prior

  • Just returned from a deployment and lifted my active duty hold after being gone for 7 months. Applied sept ‘17 and 50% complete on CASS, just waiting for the polygraph again. Now let’s see how long it takes to get a date. I noticed they have CBP Hiring Frontline Veterans Recruitment contact on usajobs now so I’ll try and contact them and see if there is anything they can do for me to push me through.

    • Does anyone have an accurate answer whether the CBPO academy sometimes starts on a Saturday or not? My FLETC dates that I received from HR starts on a Saturday and I'm having a hard time believing it would actually be the case since I haven't heard of a law enforcement academy that starts on a weekend and HR did say the academy runs M-F. At this point, it seems more logical to believe that I will just check in at FLETC on the Saturday and the actual academy session will start on the following Monday. Confirming this in advance will assist me in my planning, thanks.

        My FLETC date is also falls on Saturday. I called back and made sure those are the right dates and the MHC told me those are the dates we have for you. You would have to report on that day (Saturday). Yeah I think they would give us a day or two to get settled in or something. What is your EOD and FLETC date if you don't mind me asking.

    • Question for some of you. How excited should I be if my CASS is at 75% with the only thing left incomplete is background. Background currently reads “in progress” everything else including drug test is green. I know I shouldn’t really be too excited until I get the “call” but just wondering what my chances are of making it all the way through at this point. TIA

        I believe somewhere between 95-98% of people that pass the poly end up EODing. Unless you’re secretly a cartel drug lord that they’d find out during the BI, you’re gonna get the job lol.

        If you did the Drug test you should be getting the call anytime, did you get placed in TSU yet? They usually only do the drug test when they are about to give you the call.

    • 19-2 Regular Announcement. I got an email today stating that my investigation has progressed to the personnel security process. Anyone have any information on this? I have not talked to my BI in over a month. Currently 63% in and I am currently employed with the Bureau of Prisons. Thanks

        Fsi, then I'm not sure why you got the email unless they did your background without contacting you. You should email your case manager.

    • KevinMO91 Yes I took the drug already but still haven’t heard from anyone no calls or emails.

      • To those who had their poly waiver approved, what was the wait time from submission to approval? With all the backlog, I imagine an opportunity to speed up the process by reviewing a waiver would be snatched up. I am going on two months after my submission. Is there a specific OPR email/phone number for this? I could bug my E-Qip case manager, but I thought polygraphs were handled by OPR.

        Timeline:
        06/21/18 Applied (18-10)
        06/30/18 Entrance exam

          Mine took almost 10 weeks from the submission to OPR through the Hiring Center to the receipt of the approval email. And yes, OPR handles the poly waiver but the final outcome will be notified to you by the Hiring Center. I would just keep waiting for the final outcome but if you really need the email address for the specific office that handles the poly waiver, your BI case manager should be able to provide it to you or you may PM me.

          Elgin_87 - I guess I am ahead of you ironically. I took my Polygraph in late August 2018 but didn't get an email confirmation that I passed until late September 2018.

          Yeah I’m 18-2 just waiting on BI

      • Just curious, has anyone really seen any progress since the shutdown ended? I know they've been sending out the robo-emails to everyone saying "your application's still active," but haven't seen many people actually moving forward over the past couple weeks... Kind of makes you wonder if the hiring folks are just twiddling their thumbs waiting to see if another shutdown is going to happen or not.

        It took 4-5 months for BI to clear since you applied or since you took your poly?

          Hello Fonzi,

          Quick question. Did you get to choose JFK after you passed your entrance exam? Or how does the duty location go about?

          also, good luck on the rest of the process.

          LMC- you wont get to choose a duty location until the last step, you will get the call "The Call". The CBP/BPA will say we have these locations available, then you can ask them for certain areas and they will tell you yes or no.
