        It's easy just stick to your answers, use common sense & officer safety.

        stick with the answers you give, they want you to be very detailed. so watch some use of force videos and use common sense with the answers. If its for BPA they want all the details big to small and they want it to flow. CBPO was super easy when you use common sense

    • Hello everyone I am the new guy to the group. I have been seeing some people having to take a entrance exam. Is that given before you receive the tentative offer of employment? I received mine yesterday for CBP and then today for Border Patrol. I am part of the brand new 19-3. I did the VRA for the GS/GL9 prior service veteran, GA Post certified law enforcement officer and current Federal Department of Army Police Officer.

      CBPO 19-3 (VRA GS9)
      Applied – 12/31/2018
      Entrance Exam – N/A (Never took this)
      Exam Notice of Results N/A (Never took this)
      Tentative selection letter (GS9) – 1/31/2019

      • I got this email, but that's about it:

        We are reaching out to all applicants who currently have an active Customs and Border Protection Officer application with the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

        Although CBP was recently impacted by the partial government shutdown and hiring was temporarily paused, we want to ensure you that all hiring has been restored and your application is actively moving forward.

        You may check your application status and pre-employment requirements using the ‘CBP Jobs’ application available on iPhone and Android devices or at https://careers.cbp.dhs.gov.

        CBP’s vision is to serve as the premier law enforcement agency enhancing the Nation’s safety, security, and prosperity through collaboration, innovation, and integration. We thank you for your patience and continued interest in our mission.

          CBPO 18-13 here, still at 38%. Waiting on Poly, Background, and Drug Tests. Still haven't been contacted by my investigator or case manager. Medical is also still pending since 10/17/18. Guess I shouldn't feel so bad it's only been about 3 months.

      • Has anyone worked with a Recruiter that they would recommend? Someone who's even just a bit helpful, or that at least responds to your messages? The few I've spoken to are either completely clueless, or they don't reply at all lol.

          I met my investigator September 4th. Closed my file on the 6th. No additional information was needed. Not sure if that is a good thing or not. He just said everything looked good on the day he submitted it.

          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

      • 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

            Hal29 it wasn't a mass email because that was the response I got when I emailed the recruiter and asked what was taking so long.

            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.
