      It blows my mind how long the medical process takes for some people - respect to those who stick it through.

  • Anyone on here from 17-11? Any movement?

      I took my poly end of last month and passed. Waiting to be contacted for backgrounds and drug test.

      When did you take your poly?

      Yup moving about at normal pace

  • Has anybody done the drug test before meeting with the background investigator?

    Comment


  • These are my dates :

    12/27/2018 Applied
    1/8/2019 Entrance Exam
    2/26/2019 Structured Interview
    2/28/2019 Medical
    3/28/2019 Fitness Test

    I passed everything above, the rest is in progress. I have 2 questions, I forgot what locations I have put for my preferred locations. Is there a way to find out? And are they set on it or can I change them when I am given an offer? Other question, I never received an email about passing the fitness test. Should I have gotten something?

      Thank you! It does say on the application that location is negotiable so I may be wrong but what I think they do is when you completed everything they give you all the available vacancies and you pick one because I am sure they do change as time goes on, especially if you are waiting for over a year.

      As for the CASS it does state that the fitness test is completed. Thanks again!

      Reading through the comments on here I feel like a lot of the final candidates were given only 1 or 2 choices when it reached final decision, hopefully someone can chime in. Best of luck!

      When I got the call for BP they offered me 1 town in Cali, 1 in New Mexico, and the other 6 were in Texas. Mind you the biggest town has a population of around 7,000 people. I asked if there were any other options I could choose from and he said no. I could not relocate to a town that was 100 miles or closer to where I am originally from. I guess that’s how HQ wants it.

      Border Patrol has a "hundred mile rule" when hiring applicants where they require new hires to move 100 miles or more from their address of record when they applied. Supposedly, it addresses some of the corruption issues within the BP.
      OFO has no such rule. That's a good thing, if you ask me. If anything, OFO needs more focused local recruitment and hiring...not less.

  • Has anyone applied for other jobs in the mean time?

      yes, chicago police department. i gave up on it last year when i found out i passed the interview with cbp.... didnt realize i was gn wait this long to get through the process. i reapplied with chicago pd last week.... will most likely get hired before the end of the year, maybe within 6 months of today.
      i also put in with border patrol 19-7. all i gotta do is interview, fitness, poly and drug.. going in provisional. hopefully that will go faster than cbp

      Best of luck - I try and check the new job listings every morning to see if something peaks my interest. I tried reading up on that fast track hiring process, have you seen that? Seems like theres a lot of requirements.

      corsair Thanks! and i do the same thing. i check usa jobs every morning for something thats interesting as well as theblueline.com for local leo spots. i read the fast track program and considered it, but at this point im going to leave my application the way it is so i dont mess anything up.

      I have a friend that went to the BP academy and he was issued the same boots that you ordered, unless for customs it’s different. They’re like $300+.

      Oh ok well good to know. Might start looking into some.

  • has anyone been verbally told that they failed the poly but actually ended up passing? I took my poly 4/10/19 and felt like it went well but then at the end of the 2 hours I was told I was failing for major crimes and to admit to something else? I did nothing but tell the truth and stuck to my guns on that. then he shook my hand and said someone will be in contact and that he is not the one who makes the final decision. wind was taken out of my sails has this happened to anyone else? Ive come this far and now this?

      I didnt get told that I failed but didnt get told I passed either. I had to take it 3 times before I passed. Most likely someone will be contacting you to schedule you again

  • So I heard that if you’re already a federal employee for DHS that your seniority (EOD date) for your current agency transfers over. Is that true?

      Yeah I heard the same. It should rollover or pick back up if you left federal service.

      Highly doubt it...only your vacation bids will matter...your shift bids you're at the. Bottom of the flag pole in seniority

      Editing a comment
      As far as work and leave bids go, seniority outside of OFO only counts as a tiebreaker in the case of two or more people hired on the same day. It also counts towards total fed time as far as annual leave accumulation at the 6 hour three year and 8 hour 15 year level.

  • Got the call today and offered the job at GS9 with a start date in mid august.

    They wanted me to come on a provisional BI clearance, but i advised them that I would like my background to fully clear before I EOD so I am back at the waiting game, hope one of you fine folks got the call in my stead.

      Spoke to a supervisor last week when he called me about my status, he said it would likely push me to a November academy date, which according to him is the next one after this August batch.

      • I wanted to ask for some opinions
        so i don’t have much experience with handling guns, and i was thinking of going to my local gun range to practice using a handgun in order to feel more prepared for the academy.

        Do you guys think this is a good idea? I’ve been told practicing on my own will get me into some bad habits and it’s better if i learn while in the academy, but i also don't want to go completely ignorant on handling guns
        FYI I’m still waiting on my background to clear and then the drug test, so i still have a way to go til i get an EOD date

          I've never heard of a firearms instructor who recommend independent pre-FLETC familiarization with a firearm. Not ever.

          Plus, there's a completely new gun to be issued on the horizon. A Glock 47...which doesn't exist in the public, consumer market. Anyone at the academy today is likely looking at transitioning to a new gun in 2021...give or take.

      • I assume if you applied to an announcement for a specific port that is what they offer you when you get the call. I had my drug test today and everything is green besides the background. I’m guessing I have to meet with the investigator before they offer me a provisional.
