  • About 2 weeks ago I did the drug test and the following day I received an email saying I have been referred to TSU and that I will be contacted with an offer once they reach my name, but drug test in CASS still says in progress. I should be good right? Didn’t think drug test was going to take longer than a week.

      When you got notified to take a drug test did they send you a regular email or they asked to send a secured letter in an email from OPR? Jgonz383

      Scrappydoo they actually called me and told me which days I would be able to go so I chose one and after that I got the email with the location. But it’s been 2 weeks since I took the drug test and a week since I was referred to TSU drug test still says In progress on CASS

  • Is it normal to be scheduled for the drug test right after passing the poly, before meeting with the BI?

      Yes, if you signed the provisional.

  • In the EAS system, under my medical screening details, it says the determination requires further evaluation. This was updated on 3/30. I figured that would happen. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to reach back out asking for more documents or information?

      rergang3 The same thing is happening to me. I did my medical back im early December 2018 and says the same thing. I emailed and called them numerous of times all I get is that my file is line for nurses review. I have no medical conditions nor I ever had. The doctor and the nurse doing my test said I did perfect.

      rergang3 I did my medical on 10/16/2018, my status said the same thing. I received the email for further medical documentation on 3/25/2019. Another 18-13 on here received a similar timeline as mine.

      Took them about 5 months to ask me for extra paperwork after medical exam. Approx 4 months if you exclude shutdown.

  • Anyone taken the poly up in Buffalo NY? Got a call today to schedule, but he said he must of got my paperwork by mistake cause I’m in Long Island NY, 450 miles away. He said he would check with supervisor and see if he can get me scheduled in newark or jfk and call me back. Amazing haha

      I took mine in Buffalo last July and it was a good experience. My examiner was good and I didn't feel too pressured during it. So if you have to take it in Buffalo hopefully you get the same examiner.

      I had an Army friend actually use the process recently, it is extremely fast, he knocked out everything up to the poly in a week no joke. He ended up getting taken out of the process and put into the normal hiring process though because something happened during his medical exam that needed review by a nurse. So now he's in the normal hiring pool.

      I wonder if between the last couple years and the GAO findings on average hiring times if there will be a review of the Federal Hiring process?

      What is the difference between the old proctored exam compared to the new one?

  • Still waiting for Poly results, tomorrow will make a week ago. I didnt get a verbal pass nor a verbal fail. The examiner was very polite and professional. Just hope everything went well.

      Talonderiel I hope so, I live in Tampa Bay too... haven't heard anything... I think the reason why you were scheduled so fast because you have BP application going on... good luck on the poly

      V_AntCBP, I think you hit it on the head..... that and my applications were actually from 15-8 if it wasn't for the recall with the military :P

      But as long as it keeps moving, then I'll take what I can get! Thank you for the well wishes, and hopefully you get your call soon too!

      V_AntCBP, no I my applications were in before there was VRA. I honestly haven't looked into applying for other APPS as the standard ones I have applied for are moving along.

      But you do bring up a point. I'll look into it.

  • BFASO it is stressful waiting to hear my reseults. Good lucky budd

      Omg yes! While I am thankful and greatful they do post because it gave insight for me on the Physical Test I’ve noticed none of them seem to ever make it or stop posting. There as so few videos online that it’s easy for CBP to find out which applicants are posting. Most give out too much into even tho they think they are being destrete... big no no with signing a non disclosure. Also makes it helpful to understand why so many people don’t make it... some of the people who post don’t look top notch... when I chat on this forum I picture everyone posting at clean cut 6’6 State Trooper

      MrAce I sure as heck don’t look like that lol but I like to think I look respectable.

  • I'm pretty sure I failed my SI.

    Can you guys offer some general tips and advice for it? I'm well-versed with behavioral or STAR type questions, but the situational questions really threw me off.

    Thank you!!

      Assuming you had the interview already I would have checked in here first or referenced the website.

      Did they take your prints after? If so you passed. If not it still doesn’t mean you failed... The Interviewers are stone faced and it’s easy to think you failed, they have no emotion during the interview. I only knew I passed because one of the other Officers who took my prints said I passed flat out but he didn’t have to say anything.
