  • Hi Everybody,

    Well I am in 19-2 Announcement for JFK. Everything has been moving along well. I am wondering if anyone has been scheduled for the Polygraph. I have completed my SI and I checked my CASS and I have green check marks up to SI. It looks like it will be a long wait for the poly. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you and good luck to all.

      I was told by buffalo poly guy that JFK and Newark are way backed up on the poly and are swamped with applicants. I have been waiting for poly since sept. And I’m 18-3

      I’m 19-2 and I had just recertified my eQIP April 5th. I don’t know what really happens in this phase but I’m at 50% on my app and I’m waiting for any word on getting my poly scheduled.

  • Just got email for SI. Any tips on how I can prepare myself

      Several situational questions - can't give any details because of the NDA. Make sure you think of your response in your head prior to speaking and ignore the fact you're being recorded.

  • Just got the tentative offer for GS9. 18-8 GS5/7 VRA at 50% now 19-7 GS9 VRA, still at 50%. Waiting on poly.

    • What do you wear for the interview? Other government agencies had business professional. This job says business casual. Is a suit too much?

        I understood business casual as dress pants, button up shirt, tie and well polished shoes... The other kats at the SI for BPA and CBPO took it as green denim pants, boat shoes (w/ socks), a half open button down shirt (w/o an undershirt... so much chest hair), and unshaven.....

        Which prompted the BPA interviewers to pass out the Memorandum of Understanding for Uniform/Grooming Standards to be signed. lol

        I'd say business casual to suite is perfect.

    • Hey guys, 19-1 DH here. I submitted my application back in October and I remember choosing McAllen, TX as my preferred polygraph location. Is there a way to change the preferred location without needing to resubmit a new application. I would really like to change it to Houston, TX. I have not been contacted by OPR for the polygraph yet, I just want to know if I can make that location change before they contact me.

        • If y’all haven’t seen Border Security America’s Frontline on Netflix you should, basically a show on the job we all want. Good insight before going to the academy.

            Shows like that are heavily staged, cherrypicked, and otherwise a pale representation of the 'average' time spent by the 'average' person.

            Caveat Emptor.

            Of course it’s cherry picked - no ones going to watch boring tv.

            OK. Life isn't TV.

            In life, lots of ports and lots of people have circumstances and work daily jobs that would make for boring TV.

        • I received my NOR a week ago. Anybody know what comes next in my email and if so when I should expect another email?

            So there's really two NOR's. One is the results email you get a day or two after taking the initial test. The second one is a few weeks later saying what grade you're eligible for. After that, it could be a few days to a month or more to get your tentative selection email. I waited almost a month to get my tentative selection.

            My original nor said what grade I was eligible for. After your initial nor you get your tentative selection letter

        • If you sign a provisional clear, but you haven't finished the process yet, is it possible to end up going to the academy before they finish the necessary steps like DT or BI? Or does BI and DT MUST be done before you get shipped to academy?

            With provisional your bi is still being processed while going through the academy. Thus the reason it is provisional. But you still need to do drug test. A drug screen is done before a conditional offer is made on any law enforcement job.

        • MMattMcD ive already been through an academy and used it every step of the way including after I graduated while on fto and in my probationary period. So yes, you do because I’ve already researched it.

            As a local police officer correct I've used mine as well but from what I was told by a two different recruiters you can't use it for a federal law enforcement academy.

          • MMatthews https://www.cbp.gov/faqs/if-qualifie...-border-patrol. That’s say border patrol but I was told it is the same process. Just have to file the paperwork when you do your two weeks before the academy.

              Krash777, is that the GI Bill benefits or is it a separate benefit? I don't want to use up by GI completely yet, but if it's an vocational training benefit... I'd definitely jump on it!

              You can use some if you’re gi benefits, you can only use it for 12 months. So when you hire on you start the paperwork at the port, they send the hours every month to the va. You won’t use all of it but u will some. I know cause I just started using mine for DHS

          • MMatthews sounds like a shorty recruiter if they don’t know that. Pretty good benefit to get vets to join.
