  • Hi Everyone,

    I am in 19-2 and I just checked my CASS and see that my E-Qip is green with a check mark and completed. Does this mean that I will be receiving an email about scheduling the SI?

    I am applying for JFK will my interview be at the port?

    Any feedback is is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you and good luck to all be patient.

      the SI will most likely be at the port you put as preferred box when you filled out the application on USAJOBs. Not always will it be the place you want it tho.

      My CBPO i put DFW/Irving, I had my SI at DFW

      BPA i put Irving/Dallas, my SI was in Lubbock, which is in west Texas 5 hours away from where im at.

      DFW/Dallas/Irving is all with-in 30mins-1 hour away from where i live

  • I know i shouldn't be talking since others have been in the process way longer than me, but its been 7 months since SI and not a word about the polygraph. What frustrates me to no end is how I've been seeing people on here who just took the exam 4 months ago and already are done with the process. Insanity.

      GS-09 applicants pretty much all are either going to be former federal employees or those with some extensive employment history. They might move faster simply because this isn't their first rodeo.

  • I just heard back from the Academy that my neck tattoos are not an issue. Of course, I just have to cover/conceal them in a dress uniform.
    Still no news about my polygraph. Hopefully, no news is good news. lol

        Hal29 I met my BI twice. Plus he went on vacation while he was reviewing my case. He even called me with an update saying he is on vacation and tomorrow when he comes back he will find out about my case and next day my BI turned green.

    • The process is so strange when I look at other peoples. Got the tentative offer yesterday and I assumed the next step would be E-QIP, but nope, it's the SI in two weeks. Makes me wonder if they would be quicker if they didn't have everyone going about the process in a different order.

        There is no rhyme or reason with any LEA hiring process. It's all about what they want you to do, and when they want it completed.

    • Hal29 hope to see your background clear soon. For me the longest stage in the process has been the BI so far.

        I has my recruiter put an inquiry in on my behalf. I took poly in may. Net my investigator in September. Case submitted on the 5th. Just trying to see what the hold up is. Process has been almost 19 months now. So I felt it was time to ask what was going on. But like always i can never get an answer or clarity. Just that my bi is ongoing and active.

    • What is the average age applicants get hired at cbpo ? I just finished college with my bachelors & i’m currently 23 years old. I passed many local exams in NYC but damn , I feel like me being a cbpo is a longshot.. i’m too young & unexperienced. Lol

        Average age? Probably around late 20's-early 30's.

        Historically, OFO used to hire lots of older, more experienced people in their late 30's, 40's, 50's and beyond. Once 12D retirement came into play in 2008, with it's "mandated" maximum hiring age, far fewer older people get hired these days.

        23 is youngish...but not overly so. I have a coworker who was hired on in his late teens. He was so young his mom had to buy his pistol practice ammo for him.

        I feel like getting employed with a job like this at 24 year old is perfect. You can work hard and make a lot of money (buy a house if you don’t already have one, save, etc) during the first few years then you can relax later on.

        I’m 26 now and wish I knew about these opportunities sooner. But I guess everything happens for a reason and it just happens to be my time.

        Why did you retake the polygraph when you passed it the first time? Also, why it take that long, did they ask a thousand questions? lol

        radsavage I was told verbally that I passed it so when they sent the report to DC they just asked me to retake it. In regards to why it took so long on the second poly, they told me that while I was doing each session, they where immediately sending the report for that session to get it approved immediately. So after all was done and over with, they told me that it was not just verbally approved but also was completely sent to DC and approved on the spot. Therefore I did not have to worry about another retake.

      So does the progress from cbpo cross over to BPA? I'm 50% with 2 cbpo applications. Just took the BPA exam and got my NORs. Wondering if I have to do a whole new pft1, medical and SI.

    • So is it the consensus that entering under a provisional clearance is a bad idea? Even if I had nothing to hide and everything was on paper (no felonies, drug use, etc.), what would be a reason to fail the BI? I understand this might be a stupid question

        Generally, conventional wisdom has it that applying for a provisional clearance makes sense if...

        You are convinced that there are no skeletons in your closet and the closets of your immediate family...If you're all squeaky clean there ought not to be issues.
        Or, if you might have issues but you are in an easily replaceable job...If CBP turns out to be a bust you can always go back to doing what you did before.
        Or you have no job at all...Then a few months working in CBP is better than having no job and no money.

        Generally, conventional wisdom suggest that declining a provisional clearance is better if you...

        Know that you have issues that may come up...
        Already have a decent job with good pay...You might as well stay put in a guaranteed decent job until you have fully vetted clearance.

    • Someone just asked a similar question above, but for the background I got terminated from a job about 4 years ago for allegedly saying profanity and horrible things at work which I did not do. Fast forward a month later the store manager got fired for money laundering and a year later the guy that said those things about me got arresting for frauding a charity... he’s a manipulative scam artist.. is that somthing they’ll take into account during the background... because if they go off what the store said it makes me look really bad.

        Currently, both hinges and chain cuffs are on the authorized equipment list. I believe the current standard issue is the SW model 100 chain cuffs but if your willing to buy your own, carry anything approved.

        The actual uniform policy on boots is rather vague. The academy's views on footwear are far more discriminating than that of the field. If it was me, I'd pick up something conservative and polishable for the academy. Once a person is at the port, off training status and done with probation, then wear the UA's or whatever.
