  • 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.

        O_rod86 I hope they move on to people from the 18-4 announcement once they’re done with 18-3. I just want some kind of news...

            • Just a heads up, you will not move forward to the poly until your are green on everything before that which would put you at 50%.

                Interesting what you are saying. So I have been on 38% since November. My SI, fitness and Eqip are all green (completed). Had physical exam 9/26/18 but it still shows in progress. No words on polygraph nor drug test. Any advise? Should I call and see if they can clear my medical? Maybe that would put me into 50%.

            • Ladies and gents the faith is restored! Cleaning my email today I found an email from OPR scheduling me for a poly.

            • Hi every one! so I took the chance in applying for BPA to see if it actually moves faster and to my surprise I THINK it did. The reason why I say "I THINK" is because it to good to be true. I first applied for Direct Hire CBPO (OFO) about a year ago (in March) and I took my polygraph in which the examiner stated I passed, but shortly after I received an email stating I had to retake it.. Then After they rescheduled me it was canceled due to the government shutdown in which everything was on hold. Then I received and email stating that the shutdown was no longer therefore my hiring process was again active. When I didnt here from them after that, I said let me give it a go on BPA to see how does that go.. well here are the results so far...

              Applied for BPA- 01.27.2019
              Completed Online Assessment- 01.27.2019
              Entrance Exam Taken- 02.01.2019
              NOR for Entrance Exam- 02.04.2019 (Passing Score 96%)
              NOR & Notice of Referral- 02.13.2019
              Tentative Selection- 02.13.2019 (Selected)
              Accepted Tentative Job Offer- 02.14.2019
              Completed Questionnaire- 02.14.2019
              Signed PSR.1- 02.14.2019

              Now just waiting for a call I'm guessing????

              Would anyone happen to know how did that move so fast and what would be my next step and/or when?? Does this really mean I am a new hire as it stated on the webpage (Welcome New Hire)? Please anyone have some information or opinion, please let me know.

              Thank you!

                Hal29. I agree sir. I just wish the hiring staff was more responsive. It's also very confusing especially with all this talk about Border security and the need of more officers and yet the hiring process is rigorous and long.
