  • I left out my residency and provisional clear forms doing my BI packet and have been waiting for my investigator to re open my packet. But no reply. I sent another email asking for an extension. Would this be grounds to be withdrawn automatically?

      Like I said email your case manager and email the forms. That's not your bi investigator. It's your case manager.

      You won't get withdrawn. If you ever have to recertify eqip they will have you sign again.

  • Is anyone waiting for JFK port. I applied for JFK back in November 2018. I am going for the PFT1 and then the SI. I was wondering if anyone has had their SI done recently for JFK and was it held at JFK or in the City. My fitness is in Manhattan.

      I am, that’s weird. First time I took the cbp exam, everything was scheduled at jfk including fitness. Back then it was video interview and it was at the CBP building at jfk

      I did my fitness in Manhattan as well, near wall street iirc. I've had my SI done in Newark because I believe that was open at the time, but I do know my friend who applied later than I did chose JFK as the place to do everything.

      I applied in October, I did my Fitness and SI at JFK, took my fingerprints there as well. I've been stuck on 25% since December after I passed my fitness. I did my Medical, I'm still waiting for that. Plus my Background Packet is Still in que to be reviewed they said. It's been 4 months since I applied.

  • Anyone know how long it takes for drug test to clear

  • Anyone from 18-3 going for JFK still active and going through process? Where is everyone at? I’ve been waiting for poly for about 5 months now. Just a hurry up and wait game going on here. No useful info from case manager and he gave me an email for poly scheduling that never replies.

  • 17-9 here, trying not to complain. The hiring process for any law enforcement agency is long and arduous, especially an agency that is hiring thousands at a time. It is hard to have patience in this process but I know this job will be a lot better way of life than with the sheriffs office and eventually pays better. Waiting on the polygraph and hopefully hear something soon. Reading this thread has kept me focused on the long game, getting to hear everybody else’s process. Some get lucky and sneak through fast but most are on the same timeline. Keep your heads up everybody.

      I agree. It does get frustrating just biding time trying to see if you get any news. I think that sharing our experiences with one another has helped me mentally and given me more patience. I feel like I’m more than halfway there but at the same time so far away. Hopefully things move quick.

      18-4 dh and 18-7 vra applied feb 2018. Currently going through the process for the Los Angeles county sheriffs dept as well. However pay and retirement for the county are better than cbp but will take whichever comes first

      eurb- research Federal retirement- thrift savings (TSP) and then tell me county retirement is better. If you research on this more you will change youre mind. The plan is gold as long as you put in money every year and month.

    • Well , it looks like they updated some of the info on the CBP Poly FAQ info page this week... Seems like they've removed "IACADSCHEDULING" as the point of contact for the poly team, and now they're just directing everyone to the "CBP Applicant Contact Center" for questions... Of course though, any CBP Official you try and ask questions about the polygraph to says they "have nothing to do with the poly" and say you need to "talk with OPR/CAD for an update," which I'm 99% sure is the response I'll get. But then the real kicker is, it's absolutely impossible to get in contact with OPR/CAD.

      So everybody really is flying blind when it comes to the poly step. If you're experiencing an incredibly long wait like me, you have no idea if you're just super unlucky and you're in the location with the longest waits in the country, or if your file slipped under somebody's desk months ago and they're never gonna get to you. You have no way changing your location, or asking if you can opt to travel to multiple locations to speed things up. There's absolutely no way to get in touch with anyone for an update to find out... It really doesn't make sense to me. Any other part of the process (eQip, Medical, Fitness, SI, etc.) all have specific points of contact that will get back to you within a few days at most with some type of an update. When it comes to the poly though, your literally at the mercy of the OPR gods...

        They don't reply anyway so you're not missing anything there & the way these poly results have been going lately consider yourself lucky lol. Since the shutdown ended I've seen one passed poly, myself included although I've yet to receive results.

        Just got an email back from the Applicant Contact Center. Just as I figured just a copy and paste standard reply when inquiring about my poly.

        “Thank you for contacting the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Applicant Contact Center.

        In response to your email inquiry regarding your polygraph examination, please note that the government shutdown caused a delay in receiving a response regarding applications and/or the next step(s) in the hiring process. However, now that the shutdown has ended, we are working diligently to process applications and support you through the hiring journey. We understand your concern regarding the fact that you have not received any information regarding your exam. However, it is completely normal for this step of the hiring process to take much longer than the other steps. We ask that you continue to monitor your email and/or the CBP Jobs Mobile App for further instruction regarding your polygraph examination. An examiner will contact you to schedule your exam”.

    • Has anyone received a NOPA during the BI? If so, how long did you have to wait to receive a final suitability determination from OPR?

      I received one and provided my response in November.

      • Got a response back from the new "CBP Applicant Contact Center." Unfortunately as I expected, it was basically the same cut/paste reply you'd get from any of the old points of contact. "You will be contacted by a representative from the Credibility Assessment Division, continue to monitor your email and phone for updates."

        That's all fine and dandy, but when that's literally all you've been told for 8+ months, it gets real old, real fast. Smh...

        • So I spoke with my brother in law (he's a BP Supervisor). He was in Lubbock conducting BP SI's. I asked him whats going on with the polygraph. He told me CBP changed contractors again. He said too many people were failing that should have been passing. Former military guys with top clearances couldn't pass. He said guys would fail the CBP/BP poly and then go on to pass an LAPD poly. That's why we're all in limbo right now.

            It was a lot easier than i expected. I was a little tired after the step test though.

        • Anyone that took the poly get told they did pass my the polygrapher and get called back after? I just did mine today and was told I passed but I heard some people had to go back. I was straight up told I did pass but not sure if that means anything lol

            I got the verbal pass from my examiner. He assured me that QC would concur with him. And a week later I received an email from him stating that QC accepted his results and agreed that I passed.
