  • So I finally was able to talk to a recruiter and he looked up my info and told me the last time my BI was reviewed was Nov.15. I also spoke to him about moving out of state and he said it shouldn’t have any negative impact.

      What information did you have to give a recruiter in order for him to give you a status update ?

      It means nothing.... just another generic response from case manager. I was told that same thing in September. I’m still waiting for a poly date. Best piece of advice just keep going on applying to other places and forget about it till someone emails you.

      It is definitely generic because I asked over a month ago and got the same thing. Still waiting also. My background was turned in back before the shut down...

      txm44 and klocklear86 thank you for your response.

  • Hi all. Need some help please. I just received email from medical review unit asking for additional information. My initial document mentioned a medication (escitalopram) that I have been taking on and off which is used for anxiety. They also want me to get a mental. I am honestly worried that this is a disqualifier.
    has anyone had to go thru additional screening for this type of diagnosis?
    your comments are much appreciated.

      I get paid disability from the VA for anxiety, I had to go to a psychologist take a test and talk about my whole life for like 3 hours. They wrote a report and filled out the DHS paperwork for me. They accepted my paperwork.

      If you have insurance call you insurance and see what psychologist they cover to keep you're cost low

      thank you all for your feedback. douglas : I called my insurance to get a list of providers. They have not called me back yet. I also called so many psychologists/psychiatrists but wont take me unless I commit to at least six sessions or as someone else said to me "unless you are in crisis".

        douglasgene1 Hal29 how brutal were the questions?

    • Ok so I have some tests coming up and one interview with some police departments. I really want to work for cbp but I can't wait for ever. Kind of gotta do what is best for my family and I. I'm not getting any younger. Some of the department's pay around the same as I would get as a gs7. The one I have the interview with pays far less then I would get with cbp and would take me two years to get to a gs7 pay scale which completely sucks. But I get a take home vehicle and is closer to where I live. Not my first or even my second choice. But like I said. I can't wait forever and it doesn't seem like I'll hear soon. I'm gonna ride out the ship, but if I'm offered then I'll go down that road. Like I said if I was younger I would wait, but to each their own I guess.

        Editing a comment
        No I'm all set with fort worth. Last time applied there, there was roughly around 1,400 applicants. I scored a 93 and was still around 200 in the pecking order. I have applications here in Texas and a couple in Oklahoma and one in arkansas .One in Oklahoma I have an interview.

        But I'm just gonna go with the flow. While I'm focused on these department's cbp may contact me. But I'm going on with life as if i never applied. I'm at the very end and I'm not going to stress about it. Gotta be proactive. It would be one thing if my current job was good but it's not.

    • Although I'm new to this process I'd recommend all those applying to reference the CBP website - its been spot on with everything so far. For those worried about the step test I highly recommend practicing, I found a youtube video "CPP PFT 1 5 Minute Step Test. With Vocal Prompts" to be extremely beneficial and its the same audio from the test. I practiced on the stairs at home and ended up finding a wood rogue block at the gym with different heights and practiced with that as well.

    • 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.
