  • Good morning ,

    One question, what does your announcement code i.e. 19-3 actually mean?

    Comment

      It’s when you applied, there’s typically a new announcement each month. The first number is the fiscal year, the second number is whatever that announcement is in the year. For example, 19-3 is the third announcement posted for fiscal year 2019.

      Okay, thank you. Although that's strange since I applied in December of 2018.

      *Edit: Apparently, I need to read up on my finance; the fiscal year 2019 includes December 2018.

      Fiscal years start on October 01st and run through September 30th. In the case of December 2018, it's actually the third month of fiscal year 2019.

      They offered him ariz but he told him he would rather stay in Texas so the only option they have him in Texas was Brownsville so he took it

      So it seems as though Texas ports are filling up fast. When I applied they were offering 5 ports in Texas alone. Now they are only offering only one?

    no not a short list at all....eqip saves your last time you did a background.(13 year fed).all you have to do is update the list...i travel out the country every year lived in multiple states..etc...my suggestion is make sure you do everything concerning the BI in a timely manner...if they ask for it accommodate them the investigators are there to help you most times and they want to submit your stuff as fast as possible

      Nice!! Slowly we all make our way through.

  • Hi guys I just finish my si today and was told I passed, Unlike most people my pft-1 got delayed so I'm taking it next week, The recruiter told me to prepare for the long wait for the polygraph, around 4-6 months. How long did it take everyone else on average for the polygraph? Thanks

      zachariah what % are you at right now in your cass. my is stop at 38% for more than 1 month now. and i am 19-3 too.

  • 19-4 here. So I took the entrance exam on 2-2-19 and passed. Got my NOR on 2-13-19. I have received nothing since. My application status still says referred, but I would imagine I would have been told by now what to do next. How long should I wait before emailing someone about it? I feel like all the other timelines I've seen, people heard back rather quickly about what to do next. Yes, I know I'm in for the long haul, but it would at least be encouraging to get the next steps of what I should do, ya know?

      Not likely. Usually local agencies have their own process and will not accept anything short of security clearance with poly.

      Good news though, local agencies' hiring timeline are 4 - 8 months lol. There are a few people here who have had 2 yr careers with local agencies before finishing the process for CBP and accepting an EOD.

  • Any one been to Glynco recently or know what is expected of us physically while at Glynco? Is there a fitness test that we are required to pass for the job while at Glynco? If so i assume it is the 1.5mile run, what time do I need to beat?

    It says "Fitness Graduation Standards of a two timed runs, push-ups, and a sitting flexibility reach." but I was wondering if anyone had the numbers! Thanks!

      Evolution81 I did sign the provisional clear as I knew that my background would clear as my top secret is current. The only thing that slowed me down was the fact that by the time my medical cleared they told me that it was a 3 months wait before I would be scheduled for polygraph.
      Forgot to mention I’m VRA 18-6 and CBPO 18-7 then reapplied to 18-12.

      I dont know about anyone else but I have not received any email communication since August when I reapplied for the CBPO. Got email for poly with schedule for week later but nothing saying I passed. I called the general CBP hr number and that’s when they told me that my background was already being reviewed by OPR even though I have not been contacted by investigator.

      AJS0922 have you checked the app/CASS for your status? I tend to see mine update there before I receive any emails.

      Let me get this right if you dont mind. My cass shows drug test is "in progress". I have not received a call or email about scheduling one. So can I call and schedule one myself?

      Editing a comment
      Mkebdani no you can’t call to schedule your drug test they will call you I think it just so happen that after I called to check status I was called to schedule my drug test.

      Talonderiel I do but I was told that cass / app only updates once a week. I just called and the individual I spoke to stated that my application was referred to TSU for a final offer so in other words I was placed in TSU and now waiting for final offer.

  • Any one on here who got “the call” going to Miami or was Miami a choice I know that in November it was a choice for the CBPO application. Just wondering since I’m close to the end what are the options that are out there.

      I wanted Miami, was told it’s not available:/ She basically mentioned all the locations on the current post.

  • So I’m at 38% on the app.

    I have a green checkmark on Fitness, Medical and Structured Interview. My EQIP was the first thing that I turned in but it’s still “In Progress”.

    I was wondering if I’m currently waiting for my EQIP to have a green checkmark before being scheduled a Polygraph. Or am I currently waiting to be scheduled a Polygraph right now at 38%?

    When should my EQIP have a green checkmark? Is this normal?

      N.N. I submitted it way back February 3, it was due on February 5. I haven't heard anything since, nothing from my case manager either.

      My case manager should be all the way at the bottom of the first e-mail confirming to send in my EQIP before the due date correct? With the e-mail of “bibox(insert number here).cbp.dhs.gov?

      If so I just sent them a e-mail asking for an update why that’s taking long to turn green. Not sure if I’m waiting for that first to turn green before even waiting for call to schedule a Polygraph.

      That might help answer your question. Your sf86 aka eQIP isn’t your typical background check. It’s to grant your clearance, whether it’s secret or top secret. I had one done mid 2018 after submitting my stuff June 2017 for the military. It takes time... ALOT of time. Welcome to the hurry up and wait lifestyle.
