      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.

  • Got a phone call today asking to put me on standby for a polygraph examination phone call (in case anyone cancels) I guess this is better than no news at all? 50% 18-9 passed SI Aug 2018 South FL area

      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

      YouTube=large target...it's not hard to find out who they are...since they're so open with thier personal info...investigators are resourceful and do for a fact look at your social media

      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.

      Yes, happened to me too. Though they are Canadian so that is probably why. Pretty standard though.

      18-9. They asked for the information around December before my poly.

  • Anyone know what steps will roll over. I did medical, pft, si and poly. Had to reapply again. Applied to regular announcement this time.

      I had to reapply to 19-7, it all rolled over but I had to retake the entrance exam

  • First and foremost I wish everyone here good luck with the process and hopefully good news comes soon. For the third time I have been deemed unsuitable by CBP. In 2011 I started the process, took my poly in 2013 and was deemed unsuitable because the examiner stated I was being deceptive. Took the beating like an adult and applied again in 2016 and after a few months got the email that I am unsuitable for the position and may reapply. In 2016 I only completed the medical and physical. Accepted the loss and applied once again in 2018 and 2019. Had 3 applications in, 2 different stations for CBPO and 1 for BPA. was at 50% on my applications awaiting my poly schedule and of course on April first out of all days got my emails that I am unsuitable for all applications. No prior convictions or run ins with the law, no drug use, no moving violations. I submitted a FOIA to see what exactly is wrong but I heard that takes forever. I am absolutely lost with what it could possibly be. No issues with the law from my family or friends for anyone wondering if I am guilty by association. If anyone has any type of guidance/ advice it is most welcomed. Thanks to anyone that reads this. Good luck to everyone. If you wish to PM me anyone is welcomed to.

      How far did they get with the 2018 and 2019 applications? 2011 I can understand because you failed the poly, but if you hadn't even taken the poly for the rest and know for sure that you are a pretty clean person, I'd be scratching my head too.

      Sorry, brotherman. Wish you the best in your endeavors and thank you for your wishes. It's awesome that you stock it out as much as you have and the organization may have missed out on an awesome officer.

      Hopefully this opens other doors for you that you didn't see when focusing on this process.

  • Got the call today I EOD June 3rd. Finally after 1 year and 4 months.

    • Anybody on here from CBPO 17-11?
      where are you in the process?

      Took Poly 2 weeks ago and found out last week I passed.
      Waiting on BI and Drug Test

      Comment


    • Hey guys, just an update.

      Im 19-2 and I’ve been waiting for my poly, background and drug test.

      I submitted my eQIP back in December.
      I completed my medical and my PFT late December
      I passed my SI early January.

      I haven’t heard anything until today. It’s for my eQIP. This is pretty much what the email contained aside from steps to complete these required certifications.

      “Due to the time that has passed since your last certification you must recertify your eQIP and provide any updates that have occurred since your last certification.”

      has as anyone experienced this? Is this a good sign?

        corsair nope, no corrections at all.

        raudy06 hopefully it’s true. I did read at the bottom to reach out to my bi case manager to expedite processing for my forms.
