  • After more than 8 months I got a call this morning from the nurse that has been working with me on my medical to let me know that I’ve been cleared medically. Now it’s on to waiting to schedule my polygraph appointment. Hopefully it won’t be to long, but I’ll remain realistic.
    Thanks to all that have given me advice for this stage of the process.

    A tip for any and all veterans who apply, get any medical info that relates to your VA disability rating and submit it with your regular medical appointment. If you have a VA disability rating, you WILL be asked for additional medical info. So it’s best to submit as much as you can as early as possible.

      Luckyjack90 Congrats on clearing medical, I didn't know the medical staff will actually call and talk to you.

      SmokeScreen07 they usually don’t as I’ve read, but this head nurse has really been helpful to me and has been helping for awhile so she wanted to let me know the good news personally.

      Luckyjack90 That's awesome, good luck on the rest of your processing.

  • Off the topic of hiring... What’s with CBPs rank structure? The uniforms and everything look great including the badges but the ranks make no sense. Like if you are a “Supervisor” you literally have that written on your badge... that’s so weird and demeaning... I mean CBP is considered a law Enforcment job, they should have Law Enforcment ranks. Instead of Supervisor it should be Seargant... just a thought. What do y’all think?

      CBP doesn't have a "sergeant" rank.

      The rank structure goes back decades into the legacy INS and USCS eras.

  • I am in announcement 18-9 and my whole process is been kind of slow, i applied last year in June and as today 04/11/19 my process completion is at 75% just waiting for results of the DT which i don't have any doubts about it, and i guess final offer is next, guys a recommendation i can share is be patient always communicate with each department if anything is missing or needed more info, don't just wait for emails. good luck to all of us it this process, any questions let me know.

      corsair how do you edit eqip? Because I contacted my case manager and he said that at this moment I would have to wait until it gets assigned to a investigator so I can make some corrections and edit my eqip.

      After I submitted my original I realized I made a mistake so I reached out to my case manager and she rejected it for me. I'm assuming once it goes to OPR theres no more editing until it gets released back to you prior to BI. That being said I'll need to make some edits to mine once that happens as I'm getting married next month but I noted that in the comments of my original EQIP.

      no such thing, You have to spend your own money if you want to come back for the weekends, which I doubt anyone it would cost too much.

    They will fly you from you port to FLETC to start training. They will fly you from FLETC to your port when you leave FLETC.

    That's it. Your personal travel is all on your own time and own dime.

    • 1.Do you get house hunting leave if you are going to be working in a different state from which you currently live in.

      2.Can you get federal housing if the cost of homes are not affordable with gs5 pay

      3.If you have been prescribed blood pressure medication after your medical exam do you need to inform cbp... if so who.

      4.If you received a disability rating after applying and leaving the military do you need to inform anyone also?

      Currently completed everything in the process except drug test and BI.

        1. I doubt it outside of the odd circumstance.
        2. Some ports have government housing on-site. The vast majority do not and do not offer any.
        3. I am unsure. I imagine at the least you would have to notify FLETC medical when you arrived at FLETC.
        4. I do not know.

        I can’t speak for most ports but there are some ports that will alllow you leave after graduation. Just reach out to your training sup because more than likely you’ll be waiting for a post academy class to start.

        As far as being able to afford rent/mortgage, that’s on you. You may have to join a roommate or something until you’re able to afford living on your own.

    • jamoranto i am the same as you, just waiting on drug test.

            Yea it wasn't great. I've had logical reasoning before but theirs just seemed tricky. Glad I passed though. I think it took me I think close to 2 hours. I found out two days later at 730 am. It was a Monday though so that's probably why I didn't get it on Sunday.

            I was surprised with how fast background got passed, but I feel for some reason it’ll take a bit for drug test and then to know results. You know how everything is hurry up and then wait.
