      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

      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

          They will teach you everything... not worth learning other ways when you will have to do it their way no matter what

          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.

        • Congratulations! You have been referred to the Training and Scheduling Unit. Once we reach your name and have an available vacancy we will contact you. The offer is based on operational need determined by the Agency.

        • Yeah but weird because I haven’t met with an investigator yet and just had my drug test yesterday

            I took my drug test yesterday I haven't received my email yet.... hahaha so jealous but I know everything is coming soon so no biggie... might even be in the same class..

        • Anyone with past drug use, did everything go smoothly?
          smoked some pot here and there in high school never an everyday thing. Probably can count the amount of times on my 2 hands. Stopped for a few years then smoked again like 2-3 times 4 years ago. Havent touched it since and done with it.

            Oops, I put down on my background that last time I smoked was a year ago, will that disqualify me during the poly?

            It probably will. Better off asking them to kick your equip back to you for corrections.

            How do you accidentally do that? Unfortunately, you will most likely be disqualified before you even get to the polygraph. You can try to make a correction but they will might view you as a liar.

            Something similar happened to me - I missed the federal law trumps state law part of the drug portion so I had my EQIP kick backed so I could correct it. You need to do this ASAP.

        • Has anyone here gotten married during the process ?? I’m assuming if all goes well after polygraph they release my EQIP back for changes ?

          Im no where near getting scheduled for the poly but I want to prepare for what I’d have to do.

              It will update once your new applicant ID is in the system.

          • Soooo.... I got hit by the QC roadblock. Gotta do a 2nd Poly on May 20th.

            Is it sad I'm actually looking forward to talking with my Poligrapher again? Dude had an interesting story and professional history.

              Becareful what you wish for. 2nd exam is much easier but usually it isn't with the same examiner.

              corsair, thank you! Anything that gets me out of my Hospital Security job (dead end job) and into a real career.

              Hal29, I will heed your warning. It's the same examiner contacting me and setting up the appointment. So we'll see. I'm not worried about the Poly anymore. I'm just telling the truth and letting the cards lay where they do.

              I have 4 different COAs based on poly outcomes. I'm hoping for everything favorable, if not then Local LEO. If that poly fails too, then it's either back to school to be a PA or push to switch to Active Duty Navy and leave the Reserves. We will see what God has in store for me!
