      NCavazos, hold on! You should be next. Technically, I applied in the 15-8 timeframes... but then did a 3 year recall that put everything on hold, so can't hold that against CBP :P

      Hopefully the end of your tunnel comes soon!

      Let us know how the Poly goes! Best of luck.

  • So I was at the Tire Store yesturday morning waiting to get my tires done when a phone call came in, I didn’t recognize it so I Immediately delicned it... then I’m like, that number looks familiar “maybe it was CBP for my Polly”. Then the voice mail comes in... 19 seconds long.... getting excited cause spam calls leave 0 second ones... put the phone to my ear “Hello this message is for (My Name) from (My Bank)... we have detected fraudulent purchases and are deactivation your debit card”.... great... Still waiting

  • Good Afternoon Brothers and Sisters, I applied under the CBPO announcement VRA 19-3 in December 2018 and got my tenative selcetion email 1 February 2019. There are many forums for my announcment for direct hire but i havent seen anyone else make a posintg for VRA. So far Ive submitted my Backgroud Invetigation, completed the Physical, submitted the EQUIP, and 27 FEB 19 my Polygraph Waiver was APPROVED from the high clearance I currently hold. Its been a few weeks and I havent heard anything, im assuming my structured interview should be next. Also the APP has been on zero percent since I got my applicant ID. Is there anyone else here that applied under VRA 19-3 that is done or almost done the process ? And also should I send the CBP Hiring center an email in regards to my process ? Thank you everyone and look forward to the replies

      Talonderiel - DHS will never accept secret clearance for waiver. To get a secret they run a credit check and a quick background check...if that clears they give you the secret the same day. a secret clearance is really a joke. (ive held one as well)

      Talonderiel They mustve changed it then, because if that was the case I woud've applied for the waiver since June when I submitted the equip.. I have a TS/SCI + active duty time , but when I asked for the waiver the guy told me it might take a little while but there were poly dates available and asked me what I wanted to do.. so I chose the poly because it seemed like the faster option.

      I doubt they'll lower it to secret, they give those away to almost anyone...

  • Looking at my archived EQIP copy I made some minor mistakes such as a phone number and accidentally listing one of my main references another time in the EQIP.

    My EQIP hasn't been sent to OPR yet, is it okay to e-mail the case manager and ask to edit/correct it?

      That would be best thing to do. When I had to reverify I had done something similar and didnt notice untill i I released it.. They called me back and I was asked if I needed it released back to me so that I could add any information that I missed. Once you meet with your BI i believe you also can give him/her any recent changes in phone#s and things like that. This is a long process and addresses and #s can change by time you get near the end so its only fair that we get a chance to make corrects...i think anyway. ...best of luck to you.

  • Hey guys, long time member but seldom poster, big lurker here lol want to pick anyone’s brain who have been through maybe something similar. My medical is asking for additional information because I was epileptic as a child. Has anyone been dq’d for this? Also, credit went down a lot because I was out of work for 4 months last year and bills stopped getting paid. Has anyone gotten hired with bad credit? I am trying to fix it as we speak. Any advice would be great

      Just make attempts to pay and on your equip or when you meet with the investigator explain to him why and how it happened. Most investigators are there to help you and explain things to you. I don't have perfect credit either with some debt. My wife had a list of medical needs and I had to choose where the money went. Explain to them and you should be fine. People have gone through with much worse.

      You need to show that you are currently paying them down..if not you will be dqed for credit...if they're asking for additional info that means they want your history and you can be dqed if you do not provide that info

      Gmen0587, I went through several medical reviews for injuries sustained on military deployments.... Just fill out the paperwork as fully as you can, by relevant medical professionals, and return as quickly as you can. The medical review unit will make their decisions. I'm guessing if you have been clinically cleared of epileptic symptoms for a certain amount of time, then you may be good.

      As for the debt process, as long as you can show that you are making positive progress then you're golden. No one is perfect in these times, especially fiscally. The bonus of this process being as long as it is, you'll have a chance to improve your credit score before you get to the BI in 18 months! :P

      Srhernza115 I was in the process. They asked for additional paperwork back in Oct. and everything was provided including the OK from my Dr. since thyroid is not an impediment or anything like it. 5 months after receiving paperwork they said I don't qualify cause my thyroid disease will affect the safe and performance of task. HOW??? All my CBP's friends and family members are telling me that it doesn't make any sense.

      merlin436 you're wrong. My doctor clearly stated that thyroid it's not a problem, never will be and that I don't need any accommodations cause thyroid disease it's not an impediment. Even the port director said that is nonsense and ridiculous.

  • Hey All

    Hope someone can help me here. I applied for the GS7 1 month ago and I am currently in the process. I also applied to the GS-9 about 3 weeks ago and was accepted. My question is since I completed some of the process for the GS-7 (Fitness, SI, Medical) can this be transferred over to the GS-9?

    Also if I was to pass every part of the process and get offered a position can I negotiate a higher salary?

    Thanks in advance

      Depending on your airport needs for TSA, could be quick or slow. Just like CBP, some get in quick, some wait a long time.

      Whats up man - fellow 19-4 here. Although you're moving slower its better than not moving at all. I'm very thankful I've never had any serious medical issues aside from broken bones and stitches throughout my life. My medical went through right away, I've read countless horror stories on here.

      Not a bad idea on applying to other jobs so far I've applied for CBPO, US Capitol Police, Mission Support Specialist, Operation Safety Investigator, and Tax Specialist. I just applied for the last four recently so no movement yet.

      Hal29 I'm just saying that because it took a month just to be selected and also I'm just comparing to other 19-4's

      Talonderiel thanks! I hope so.

      Srhernza115 I should be ok. I mean the issue is fixed so we'll see. Won't be surprised if I need to submit more paperwork

      TheSlammer yea Boston seems to be needing a lot which is great

  • Question for all Current CBP Officers or anyone with the Knowledge on the area. Once my time gets here I want to put in for the Savannah Seaport so i can be close to my wife at Fort Stewart, " I applied under VRA"
    Does anyone know the workng conditions working at a Seaport ? Pros and Cons? Do you/they like working at that port ? And is the housing around the area cheap ? I heard that sector was small, but once i get my final offer im going to request it.
    Thank you everyone
