      Hal29 Oh okay, sucks you've waited this long.. Did you get held up on something? I was just going by some email they sent me once my Eqip cleared. I assumed it wouldn't be done until my poly was done.. My husband has a higher clearance and I remember how long it took for everything with him(not as long as CBP seem to take though).

      The government does not get in a hurry. LOL

      No I never got held up anywhere. They just take their time. It's hurry up and wait. Your equip is part of your bi. It goes to opr. But once you pass poly your equip gets kicked back out and then you meet an investigator and then it's wait time. There are a few 17 announcements waiting like me as well.

  • At one point does your application show up on the CBP Jobs phone app? I see a lot of people talking about percentages of how far along they are. I assume it's the app they are looking at. I applied, took the test, and passed the test. USA Jobs shows my application as referred, but the CBP app doesn't show anything yet.

    Also, my girlfriend is trying to get into grad school at Salem State in Massachusetts. I applied for the Boston location in case she does get in. If she does get in, she would start late summer '19 there. With that said, am I able to apply for TSA while still in the hiring process for CBP? I imagine the process isn't as crazy as CBP so I could at least have my foot in the door while waiting. Or would it be best to find a job outside of DHS while I wait? Sorry for multiple questions!

      If you want to move to Boston, apply for TSA while waiting for CBP is fine... CBP process will be anywhere from 1-2+ years so... TSA process is totally different than CBP... faster and less stuff to do... training is also faster than CBP... if you need a job while waiting, apply for TSA is definitely a good option. rergang3

      you will have to do a PFT for CBPO and PFT fpr BPA, I litterally took both at the same location. The people were confused, especially since i took the BPA one 1st.

      You will also do both Structured Interviews, 1 for CBP, 1 BPA. everything else will be the same (1 appointment for all)

  • Hello everybody!

    19-4 CBPO Here

    My current timeline:
    ​​​​​​1/28/2019 - Applied
    2/8/2019 - Exam
    2/11/2019 - NOR - Pass
    2/20/2019 - Structured Interview Setup
    2/25/2019 - Medical Exam Setup
    2/26/2019 - E-QIP BI Submitted

    Going through the process at a pretty decent pace. I have my SI coming up soon and was just hoping for some advice. Currently at the tsa and this has been posted around already but for their interview they use the STAR interview and I was just wondering if CBP uses the same format. On their website it states that it's situational so I'm hoping they provide examples where we're able to respond and say what we would do, opposed to the STAR interview where we're providing experiences of our own. Any advice helps!

    Thanks!

      We signed NDA so we can't say much... but CBPO SI is very easy... use common sense, the interviewers will rate you on seven competencies that are critical to success as a CBP Officer (i.e., Judgment and Decision-making, Interpersonal Skills, Emotional Maturity, Cooperativeness/Sensitivity to the Needs of Others, Teamwork, Flexibility, and Oral Communication). Be confident... you will be fine... vtruy

        Hal29 I've been reading posts on this forum for a while and saw at least one other person in the same boat as me.

        I would really like to know what the actual order of how things are 'normally' suppose to go. I think 7+ months to clear medical is ridiculous. My investigator was able to knock out meetings with 4 people within 3 days, cool, but what is the hold up?

    • sixfour

      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.”

    • 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.
