  • I received an email on Tuesday saying that I was being referred to the training scheduling unit and that I will be contacted when a vacancy opens. At this point is that an indication that I might get an offer and if so how long do they usually take to call you?

    Also I’m VRA and I’ve heard they may let you pick from a few locations is this true?

    TIA

      15 months in. Still waiting on my drug clearance but received same message; I’m on the “call list” basically. Everyone seems to be getting some movement in their process, which is a good thing.

      Not everyone is getting movement.

  • Did anybody else get a request to submit additional medical information, after the initial request for additional medical information?

    • To All,

      I’m in 19-2 Regular Hire just saw my CASS updated to 25% preemployeement process completed I am waiting to be scheduled for the SI, Poly and Drug Test. Is anyone else in the same boat I am. I selected JFK port for SI and Poly I am wondering if anyone else has completed or has been scheduled already. If so any advice or time frame to have these 3 steps completed. I have been in the process since December 2018 I think it is moving fairly quickly.

      Thank you

        19-3, same port and progress as you. But no progress yet for me. I feel like it slows down once we hit the last few steps which are time consuming from what I’ve read so far on here

        19-3 here, I'm waiting on the poly and drug test.. Seems like everything went really fast, but have a feeling the poly is what will take forever.. I selected Orlando for poly, but I'm in Atlanta so did my SI here.

    • Luckyjack90 they rejected mine 3 times before they finally approved it. Just get what they want done as soon as you can get the ball rolling again. They wanted my doc to sign off and then two separate Labs to ensure my creatinine levels were normal. It took about 2 months per request to be reviewed so be ready for that.

      • Does anyone know if i failed a polygraph test, will that carry to another application i fill in? Like from CBP to BPA? Will all the testing i passed for CBP be passed on as well?

          If you fail the poly, you cannot apply for any position with CBP, including BP, for 2 years.

      • N.N.. Thanks for the response (don’t know how to reply where you did sorry), I would have hoped that what the Polygrapher told me about waiting to be called to retake the polygraph would be true... He just said that and gave me false hopes... he even asked me if I were willing to have him again as my polygrapher and i said yes...
        My application doesn’t show up anymore on the app... so I should just give up now...2 years waiting I cannot afford to do that... I needed the job now.

          I’m sorry for your situation bro, it really is unfortunate, but seems to be an all too common occurrence with the CBP poly. Unfortunately, if you received a Notice of Results saying you received an “unfavorable” determination, that overrides anything you were told before and is basically permanent for 2 years. I’m sorry to say...

          There are other agencies you can apply, try local PD , TSA, ... wait 2 years and reapply to GS9 CBP/BPA... I'm still waiting on poly but I got applications in many other places.... Dont give up if you really want the job, Vere Garcia I've seen someone failed poly 5 times before getting the job....

      • I will try other agencies, but it is unfortunate that they tagged me as a liar and probably as a drug user (which I am not, have a clean criminal record, got the record for another job last year).
        I will be checking and posting if anything good happens, but yeah I really wanted to be a CBP... guess it wasn’t the job for me... I even trained and studied like never before.

          Very true. Disclose everything. Don't wait until after the testing to disclose.

          bonds525 I think it all boils down to the examiner. It's not possible that 60-70% of all applicants fail because of criminality or severe indiscretions. Something is not right. I'm glad the "telling them everything" strategy worked for you. It seems like it doesn't always work out like it did for you.

          Yeah man. Just be honest. If you don’t understand a question ask them to explain. If there’s something on your mind that you think qualifies tell them anyways. Because if you think about it while answering it might show as you being deceptive.

      • Anyone had any luck recently reaching out about background investigations? Seeing a lot of recent announcements flying through while a handful of us are from 2017 announcements and waiting 7+ months for BIs to process for a total of 16+ months in the process

          well, it looks like my medical is on hold. Per javi87 I checked https://eas.chsmedical.com/ and had my medical under "further evaluation" I emailed them to see what the next steps are... The wait just got longer.

          cbradshaw310 are you under "further evaluation"?

          I had never looked there, but yes it says the same thing (further evaluation). It may say that for everyone, I'm not sure that they can specifically make that determination or if someone else has the say.. If you would let me know if you get a response that would be great!

          sixfour I went ahead and emailed them and got the following response...

          Your pre-employment medical examination arrived in our office and is pending review. This is a normal part of the process. Due to the current volume of applicants, we are unable to give you an estimated time in which your files will be reviewed. If, after review, additional information is recommended, you will be contacted by email. Please check your email and mobile app regularly for updates.

          cbradshaw310 I talked to CHS and they said they forwarded the results to CBP. I called CBP and said that they are backlogged as a result of the shutdown.... and per previous posts, the medical has to clear first before the poly.

      • Just joined. But im part of the 19-4 hiring process. Anyone else?

          O_rod86 Yes, almost 2 years ago I chose San Francisco. I was hoping to get more options when I got the call but was not offered anywhere else. Not a big deal, too bad I can’t find any info about the SF port. I wonder if it’s airport or sea port.
