  • 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

  • Hi... I'm so disappointed. Almost 2 yrs in the process and I got an email today saying that I was disqualified because of my thyroid disease??? How's that possible? How can my thyroid which was removed disqualified me? I need some light to understand.

      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

      corsair well you're bound to land something!! Good luck!

  • 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

      I’m not current Officer but had my interview in Savannah and they told me once I get through process call their recruiter and since I’m VRA I can more than likely get Savannah. The housing is super cheap compared to a lot cities in the US.

  • 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.

    • 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?
