      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.

      • It’s a long shot to ask, but did anyone’s process speed up or slow down after applying for a later GS9 announcement? I’m currently 18-8 GS 5/7 VRA, just applied for 19-7 GS 9 VRA. Both are for CBPO. Already have been selected for BPA GS9.

          They process both applications at the same time. Doesn't seem like mine sped up or slowed down at all.

      • Waiting patiently..... DH going on 19 months since I applied. At 63% still waiting for BI to clear and Drug. BI was submitted since November. Passed everything from the first time did not have to retake anything.

            Usually they verbally tell you passed after the conclusion of the poly...so NO in this case no news is NOT good news when it comes to the poly...they didn't tell you you failed I assume..so I wouldn't worry too much

        • CBPO.
          So the other day (4/08/2019) I went in for my SI interview and to my surprise I didn't pass. I have taken this interview two and half years ago in October 2016 and I passed it. After taking the interview I was informed by others that I shouldn't have participated in the SI interview since I've passed it less than 3 years ago.
          I reached out to hiring manager as well as the SI office after being told---"Passing results are valid for a period of 36 months from the date of your interview. If there has been a change to the interview format or if there is a change in the competencies being evaluated, the pass or failure of previous test versions will not be applicable"


          Dear CBP Hiring Center

          Greatly, I would appreciate either you getting back to the Hiring Center once again or giving me the direct contact information of the individual whom I should contact/talk to, to pursue this dispute. Definitely, a huge discrepancy exists.

          Your correspondence states, "Passing results are valid for a period of 36 months from the date of your interview. If there has been a change to the interview format or if there is a change in the competencies being evaluated, the pass or failure of previous test versions will not be applicable".

          However, directly from the https://www.cbp.gov/careers/car/cbpo-interview that was last updated July 23, 2018- 15:50 we read, "The SI results are good for 3 years if you pass." There is no indication that the SI interview changed or that the policy changed since April 2016 according to the CBP SI Government website under the category "What is the Structured Interviewed (SI)". https://www.cbp.gov/careers/car/cbpo-interview

          This career is very important to me. The information on the website is important to you, me, the government and other candidates. I would be doing a disservice to myself and others if I simply ignore this discrepancy and injustice. This is a career based on adherence to honesty and principles.

          By adhering to honesty, ethical principles and website documentation, I should now move on to the polygraph testing.



          Please let me know about the next step I should take.
          Thank you


          Well in the end, they told me that they have changed the new format of the structured Interview in November 2016. Since I took the SI in October 2016 I do not qualify. Now I need to wait another 6 months until I can retake it. Who knows if that will change.
          This sort of bummed me out how the agency won't stand by their own documentation on the CBP.gov website. So whatever you read online don't think it's true.

          I wish the best to you all.

            Why didn't you look up the process prior to reapplying, things change. I saw you failed the polygraph which you knew you had to wait 2 years to reapply so you must have researched something.

            6 months is nothing compared to 2 years.

        • Yes unfortunatley I was founded unsuitable for the position after taking the polygraph in November time 2016. I waited 2 years and reapply to CBP, being told that will be the time frame I need to wait.

          If things change then they should take down SI interviews are accepted from the last 3 years from the CBP website. https://www.cbp.gov/careers/car/cbpo-interview (How long SI results are good for) category. It's very unethitcal to have a documentation posted up and not be true towards the other candidates. There is absolutely no indication online that the test has changed since April 2016. So nothing to research. https://www.cbp.gov/careers/car/cbpo-interview (what is the structure interview SI) category. Also the website has been updated 8 and half months ago.
          Updated---- Monday, July 23, 2018 - 15:50

          CBP seems like a really cool job and wish everyone the best.

            Do you have your original email for the notice of results for the SI? I just looked mine up and it has that part about if the test changes the results don't carry over.


            "The passing SI result will be valid for a period of 36 months from the date of your interview. If the interview format is changed or there is a change in the competencies being evaluated, applicants will be required to complete the new test and pass or failure of previous test versions will not be applicable."

            did the interview not go well? Or what happened? I do not think it’s “unethical” that they list that, but in reality if you passed the interview once, you should be able to pass it again.

            you do not have a case since you stated they changed the interview format from 16...that means you would have to take the new format interview
