  • Ok I have a question and yes I've researched it but still would like to hear from y'all. In regards to PT at FLETC ....how physically demanding is it? I've been doing my runs and trying to increase my upper body strength but still curious as to what you've heard. Being an "older" (as apposed to some of you 20 and yearly 30 yr olds) female I worry about keeping up with the guys : \

      Make sure you run outdoors too. I did all my training on a treadmill and could very easily run 1.5 miles under 14 mins, but now that I started running outdoors it is MUCH harder.

      Thanks for the replies. Well I've slacked off on my running time for the 1 1/2. I ran it this week at 14.28 but at my best times its been under 13. My upper body needs more strengthening though. As for the training guide that Crake posted , I can do that no problem so I guess its just working on adding more reps.
      Thanks again guys for the feedback. Yall think of anything else let me know.

      I agree with Anthony_525 about running outside. Its harder and I definitely need to do more outdoors running. Im doing 9 min miles outside on a good day. I tend to just time a completed mile outside and not my 1.5 mile. I guess i need start timing outside now.

        corsair No clue, the emails state something along the lines of "due to internal re-organizational structuring. the new case manager assigned to your background is such n such".

    • 19-5 VRA GS9 here. Applied in Feb and got a TO shortly after. In March I've submitted my equip, had my medical physical, and have my PT test next week. Applied to BP and CBPO concurrently. I'm assuming things will slow down after they schedule my SI?

      • I am 18-3 DH applicant and currently sitting at 63%. I have passed everything up to the Poly and passed that back in August 2018. Its now been 6 months and I have not heard from a BI to start my background investigation at all. Has anyone else had a long delay after poly to getting CONTACTED by the background investigator? I feel like everyone who passes the poly meets or at least certifies their equip a month after Poly results. I am super confused why mine is taking so long for any of that.

          I'm on the same application number as you and our timeline is similar. But CBP average hiring takes upwards to 318 days. I've used a calendar that you can use online that says we are about 227 days in our process. Of course this is with me taking out weekends and holidays. I know we are all anxious to start our new careers but we got to have patience and I mean a lot of it lol.

          I don’t think it’s hard, just tired of waiting for this Polly, in the mean time possibly looking into applying for other jobs as well to get somthing in the pipeline. And by easy I mean like not like an FBI fitness test because even my most fit friends can’t pass that...

        • Long time, no post. Just thought I'd provide an update on my CASS. I sent my millionth email asking for an update on my medical clearance on March 6, 2019 (timeline below will show wtf). That same day I got a reply telling me the same thing: hurry up and wait. Well, I forgot about it for about 2 weeks and checked my CASS on March 20, and boom my medical had cleared. CASS went from 38 to 50% so now I'm happy to see progress.

          I am apprehensive about the poly. I'm not gearihe good things, even from current CBPOs where I work. Some have even told me if they had to take a poly now, they wouldn't pass (I guess they all joined prior to 2010 when the anticorruption act went into effect). I guess I'll just take this in stride. Hurry up and wait some more...

          Stay positive, y'all.

            Polygraph is alot better then it used to be..... trust me on that much shorter in most cases and the focus is narrowed to the cbp mission...the old poly was akin to a counterintelligence interogation

            Maddoxthe13th, Yes I am military. These are technically applications from 15-8 when I first applied but then got pulled on a 3 year recall.

            Region also plays a huge thing into it. I'm in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.

        • Question, During the fitness test portion of the hiring process. You use a 5in block during the pushup test. Is that the same thing you do during the test at the academy? using the block?
