      LMC I think there was this guy who was faster. I also think if I didn’t apply for the Poly waiver it might’ve been faster.

      DMC1988 OPM conducted a BI about a year prior, after which i got my TS/SCI fully adjudicated. If I’m not mistaken, OPM also does BI for CBP?

  • Overall, how is the written exam for the GS 5 ? any advice on preparing for it?

      It’s the same exam for GS5/7 but as far as study materials go, just study the information they send you in your email once you register for the exam. It’s literally the exact same stuff.

  • Question for anyone currently still active mil or guard. Has your current e-Qip helped speed up your BI or helped with the process at all?

      Wow that is crazy. Reading this had me worried, but my medical just cleared today. Exactly one week from my exam day

  • Senor_Davis not at all unfortunately. If you had a TS with a polygraph and still had read in than you would qualify for a poly waiver. Hal29 I am 17-10 I believe 9/1/17.

    • Anyone else have any tattoos on their neck? I have small Chinese lettering below my right ear. No bigger than a square inch. I got it in 2006. My brother in law told me to consider getting it removed because BP just kicked a girl from the academy for having a tattoo on her hand.

        ima be truthful either cover it up or get it removed since its on your neck....plenty of vets have tattoos that are leos but they can usually cover it up.......you dont want to give them any reason to dq you...i dont believe the hand tattoo there is more to the story then that

        The BP has their own policy with regards to tattoos. Universally, pretty much anything offensive or gang related will be an issue.

        I’m also 19-4. Wish I would have known about the fast track. I have done my test, medical, e-QIP, and have my fitness next week.

    • Quick question, so if I were to move out of state who would I have to contact about updating my information? I’m still in the process of getting my BI cleared so would they have to send an investigator out again to talk to my new neighbors and co-workers? I’m curious as to how it would work.

        I agree with V_AntCBP I used to work as a background investigator and if you move out of state and they haven’t interviewed you yet then they have to assign an investigator in the area you are in and hope that the area has investigator if not they have someone go TDY to do your interview to include your residence check and other information too. This can delay you a good amount of time if you can’t delay the move then just make sure that your investigator knows which could help by adding it to your file and if they interviewed you already it may be ok.

        ajs0922 I already met with my background investigator and gave him all my information. He also already met with all my references and contacts. My background was submitted one November. I think it would be kind of useless opening my case up again and going out to interview my new coworkers and neighbors since they won’t have much to say about me, no?

        Srhernza115 if all that was done than you should be fine at that point it is pointless. I would just advise your investigator Incase if they need to follow up with you for any information.

      • At my SI, the BPA agents did say that the process was slowed down because of the shutdown but that it should be picking speed back up. He said the average hire time is 8 - 14 months and they are trying to get lower than that..... He did say it took him 20 months to be hired 8 years ago.
