      Only medical, poly and background transfers over.

      I have an application for both going. As Alpha0556 said, those are the only ones that work across the apps.... However it does seem to help move things along faster as they both follow slightly different orders for processing. Or maybe I'm just lucky? :P

  • I figured why not. I've got nothing to lose. This is my last chance as I am reaching the cut off age. They said i could reapply so I did. I will attach all supporting documents when I do equip.

    • Just wondering if anyone from 19-2 received email or phone call in regards to scheduling polygraph. If you picked JFK does it take place there or in the vicinity of your port.

        19-2 and no call or e-mail yet. Just been keeping myself occupied and aware for any phone calls and e-mails.

        I hit 50% on 03/22/19. I've read that a 19-3 got a call for a polygraph appointment a few days ago, should be a good sign.

        Hicknad101 I EOD to Newark next month, the longest thing that holds anyone up is medical if they state you need additional paperwork. Process alone seems to take 6 months or longer on average. So if you passed medical and its green your good, Next is Poly, some people do not seem to get poly's scheduled. Theres a lot of people are all the way back in like 18-3 hiring group and up sitting at 50% still waiting on poly. Once you pass poly the BI is left and that can be a long wait depending on your background and who is assigned. Looking at 1 month to over a year. Once that goes green drug test and "the call" come fast.

        It is a very long wait and it can be all luck, both of the polys I took werent originally scheduled for me, I was offered both after the original applicants canceled. Yes, I took two polys. i also didnt have to wait on BI as I signed for provisional and it was granted. I got lucky and my process took 4 months from start to "the call" It will be 9 months from when I applied to when I start working on May 6th. Either way goodluck and keep applying to other places as well.

        leo1112 when you fill out e-qip you can submit a form to request a provisional clearance, If they grant you it, you can get hired before your BI is done. Most people that get provisional seem to have the BI clear while they are in the academy

    • Anyone else here a Security Guard with TWIC clearance from Homeland Security? Just curious.

    • Still waiting for the "call" for the CBPO position after being referred to the TSU a few weeks ago. Seems the BPA calls right away but with Customs there's a bit of wait, crossing my fingers the call comes soon.

        The BP needs far more new hires. They're also the favorite son. Don't figure on OFO becoming a priority for hiring anytime soon.

        raudy06 I saw that, but thats a timeline of when they expect EVERYONE to have it, it will be issued before that and will logically start at the academy. The question is how soon.

        They will have 3 models to choose from, this is coming from DHS. Hopefully they start giving them out for the new academy dates. My academy day is next week, I’ve shot the HK and wasn’t impressed with it. Shoots wells but very small on the hands...awkward feel for a guy with big hands

    • Hey quick question for you guys I'm from call 17-10 (yes it's been a long while since the beginning stages in September of 2017) just finished up with my 3rd Polygraph and got a verbal pass...my question on here is about the BI and the workplace. I dont have any issues at my workplace or anything like that, but I would like to keep it private except for references which I have put down that know I applied. I dont really want everyone around my job knowing I plan on leaving if everything works out. Does the BI actually go to the job to talk to people. Or just does like neighbors, references Wife, and things like that. Or would I be able to discuss my issues with him about my job beforehand?? Anyone have any ideas. Thanks in advance

        This is one of the issues I don't like too. They come to your job, everybody knows you are leaving and 6 months later, you are still there... will feel extremely weird... fort1978 but yes, they will come to your job... and mostly just talk to your current boss and maybe HR rep,

        Really I wouldn't have a problem with then talking to my boss since he already knows what's in the works and a few people that work with me already know also which isnt an issue but an H.R. rep would be an issue cause they would let everyone know....lol....hopefully it will just be my boss or a few of my bosses since I have about 3....lol

        I did apply to both the regular and DH announcement as well as BP Did not sign provisional nor am I on the expedited initiative as far as I know that started after I applied. I did decline the offer and accepted one for border patrol.
