    - I was offered 5 “critical areas”
    *AZ - Nogales

      Way to stay the course. Says a lot about you.

  • Does anyone know the timeframe to hear back the results of the Background Investigation? I already took the polygraph and met with the investigator and zhe told me she already sent out her report. It will be 2 years in April since I first applied to CBP. Thanks in advance.

        I noticed I answered a question incorrectly so I reached out a head of time to try and fix it, looks like this saved me some time or I would have had to wait for it to be rejected.

        I think I re-did mine 7 times because of the requirement for physical locations of my deployment sights :P

    • Thanks. Poly was extremely long. 6hrs. But the examiner was very nice and professional. Overall Good.

        Ohhhhh so you've filled out the eqip already, I was confused. The app will say in progress for everything, but that doesn't mean anything. Just pay attention to your email and be patient.

    • Sheridan1 are you saying I don't deserve another shot? I don't even know why I was found unsuitable.

        The opposite is what I'm saying. You shouldn't be found unsuitable for a position, only to reapply and everything be fine. Only exception I can think of is paying off debt but even then I think that's a silly reason unless your 6 figures in debt or something. I also don't think someone should be found unsuitable unless it's super serious, it just wastes time and resources for the applicant and the agency to do stuff all over again.

        Only hal and the ajudicator know the answer to that. My friend went through a similar situation they told him the same thing ....you can reapply and then they denied his 2nd app with unsuitable...he found out through foia that his answers didn't match his prior poly /suspension from current job factored into him being found unsuitable

        I agree with evo. When I was found suitable this past month, there was something in my background that came up. My adjudicator contacted me and we discussed it. I believe it is no use applying for a different announcement for hal’s case since they found you unsuitable. Once you put in your information (SS #), your old application will show up and they will immediately dq you again. You can try again if you want, but I seriously doubt you’ll fall through the cracks.

    • What does direct hire mean ?

        Direct-hire authority allows agencies with OPM approval to hire people without using the usual rating and selection procedures...examples, consideration of veterans’ preference, entrance exams...etc.

        Direct Hire also means you are going to south west border ports... Texas, AZ, CA, etc... no other options.leo1112

        The usual mess of inept recruitment probably has something to do with those high failure numbers during the earliest steps.

    • Hello there. I applied for this job a few months ago and I would like to know if the job is good. Am fron NYC so I got JFK and Newark to pick from. I would like to know, which on is better ?and if the job is good?. Am currently LOE. Thank you and be safe out there.

        JFK is, by far, the larger of the two ports.
        Money-wise, around NYC and NJ, you can do better by cherrypicking a local LE job.


    • YOUNG718 I was found unsuitable not disqualified. They may want me to fix something simple. I don't know until I get a FOIA report. There is a difference between the two. They said reapply and fix whatever issue it maybe. It's my time not yours. I will choose if it's a waste of time or not. I was in the process for almost 19 months. I'm not going to base my decision on someone else telling me not to and that it's a waste.


      thanks

        I think I know what it is but I'm not sure. I'm waiting on FOIA. But think it has to do with my student loans. It's complicated situation. I'm not in debt but department of education filed a corruption suit against the university. The university shut down. Major federal lawsuit. My loans have been frozen but indecent agency is still trying to collect. So they put it default. I received an email about 4 weeks ago from the department of education put a freeze on my loan and told me told wait until after litigation. Sent me a letter of proof to submit if needed. I contacted my investigator but he said once he submits it, it is out of his hands. But by that time opr already made their decision. I'm assuming. Because I never got a response. A week later I got the response.

        That is the only thing I can think of. When I talked to investigator and recruiter. They told me to submit the letter and FOIA if that was the case. I can't think of anything else. But yes my actual debt is 1,500. The student is in court for loan forgiveness lawsuit. Right now my claim is with the internal affairs department. We'll see what happens.

        As of right now my application was found suitable and I'm scheduled for the exam. I did not get the gs-9 because I did not meet the educational or direct work experience. I only have 60 credits in criminal justice with no military or federal experience.

        We'll see!

        I wish you the best of luck Hal and hopefully this issue can be resolved and they can get you back on track. We’re here to support one another and give good advice. I follow this forum to read about people’s timelines and experiences and give my two cents every once in a while, not to see people gang up on others and beat them when they’re down.

        shooot... I have 150k mortgage default (not a bankruptcy ), it was settled in court between me and mortgage company in 2014. They agreed to forgive the amount i defaulted, I walked free and clear and i agreed to give them back the house.... I noted that on my eqip...... I'm back on track now with almost 800 point credit score and every bills have been paid on time for the last 5 years... hopefully this would not find me unsuitable...

    • Young718 there’s probably good reason he was found unsuitable for employment. Like I’ve said in earlier posts he seems come
      off defensive and immature. People hiding behind fake names and posting stuff they would never say to your face. I wish him luck in the future but he obviously needs work on some things.

        I'm still a nice guy. Once again you don't know me. Not am I immature. So you know that it was something serious? Because if you seen my background there is nothing serious. Never been arrested, no drug history, never been outside the country. So I am curious to see what it is.

        Not once did I say anything disrespectful. It's the other way around. But it's all good. I'm here for me. So if I was encouraged to reapply, well that's what I will do. I've had a lot of support on this forum. I've been here for a while and have support myself, not knocking people down. So if reapplying is what I want to do, then so be it. I don't people to tell me there are good reasons why I was found unsuitable, or that it's a waste of time, or I'm defensive, or I need to wait two years. No where does it say I need to wait two years. I've passed my medical, physical, si, and poly. So why would i need to wait two years? I don't put you down. I expect the same in return. Thanks
