    Yes, took the poly October 24th, got a verbal pass, CASS update by that Friday.

    I know some people are saying they don't do the poly before med clears, but that's just not always the case.

      So usually when medical clears then you get scheduled for poly. It all depends what you put on your medical form or if there find anything that needs further review. Once the background starts you will meet the investigator. He will run through your background packets for clarity and explanations on certain things. They will then interview friends, family, neighbors, bosses, and co-workers. They will then submit it to opr, who then does further review of investigators findings and reports. Once it clears opr then you will get final adjudication and contacted by tsu and so on.

  • Does anyone know if this means anything?

    “In response to your request for a status update on your background investigation, we are pleased to report that your investigation has progressed to the Personnel Security process. Because each investigation is unique, based on the individual background and experiences of the applicant, we are not able to give you an estimated or average time forcompletion.”

      generic response everyone gets that email after you reach poly stage+

  • What about this? Lol

    “We are still waiting for a final suitability determination. Once a determination is made, you will be notified.”

    Does it mean the investigation is over and just waiting on adjudication?

  • I applied back in June 2017 and almost two years later my polygraph has been schedule for March 11th. My medical the longest and it was because I had some issues and had to be cleared by my doctors. I still think it took to long though. But prior to getting my polygraph schedule I spoke with a recruiter about my situation and in about a week after I was contacted to schedule my polygraph. Do anyone know after my polygraph is completed and assuming I pass what is the next step.

      I had some percentage for VA but even after the doctors said I was ok they seem to want more and I finally said I have no more to give you. Then about a month after that exchange they clear me. Do re certify means I have to complete the EQUIP over?

      The 45K cap includes all premium pay...OT, Holiday, Sunday, midnight/evening differential. Retirement creditable overtime is capped at 50% of the statutory cap(22.5K) and none of the differential pays are retirement creditable.

  • Do any of you know what to expect in the background investigator interview? Thanks in advance.

      It’s literally a meeting over your Eqip packet. The person will ask you to confirm info and get names and numbers of some more friends family co workers. Basically last chance to have all your info straight and truthful.

      Oh boy. Never really had an extensive medical history besides wearing glasses

  • So after 9 months since I sent in additional medical paperwork, they send me an email today asking for even more. But it's basically all the same that they requested earlier. In the email they tried to tell me that they had asked for the paperwork several months ago, which is absolutely false. I've written to my Congress representative and requested them to open a formal inquiry into the CBP hiring process. Hopefully that will light some fires and get on HR.

      Evolution81 that's not true at all. Most, if not all congressional representatives have a page on their site specifically for obtaining assistance for government issues. I used my representative once before for help obtaining paperwork from the Air Force. When it was just me, they couldnt find it. But when my representative got involved, POOF they found it. Your representative can be a valuable resource for things like this.

  • Did any of you guys receive an email confirming the submission of your background investigation? I was just curious seeing as I don’t really know when my investigator submitted it, I’m just guesstimating.
