  • David1984 i applied to both too and ended up taking the DH. The VRA has a two year probation and DH has a one for some reason. They still gave me the port I wanted. The difference he explained to us that VRA will hell put you somewhere else if CBP doesn’t work out.

        Most polygraphs are done before the background stage. If you have derogatory, unresolved credit issues, they will arise in your investigation. It's actually the number one reason that applicants are determined "unsuitable". You'll want to clear that up as soon as possible.

    • Received my email yesterday saying I been referred to TSU. Now the wait for “the call”

      • Does anyone happen to know if a recent unfavorable USSS poly would affect CBP? Since both are under DHS.

        Also my timeline below since I usually just lurk. The medical staff wouldn't let me take the PFT at first due to a heart murmur I've had since birth, had to get it signed off on by my doc. They were scheduled the same day but different facilities. That's also why my medical took so long since I had to submit additional paperwork.

            David1984 I did my SI in November 2018. It might be the dependent on the location/port where you did your SI.

        • Took PT test today, SI on Tuesday. Any tips or heads up on the interview? Already a LEO so I have a little knowledge on how to answer some questions.

        • Anyone have any good tips on how to contact the hiring center? I've called, left messages, and sent emails but not getting any response.

            What number are you calling? They always answer when I call - I think i've called 2 or 3 times.

        • Well, a few days ago marked 8 months since the SI for me and still nothing. It's really hard to keep a positive mindset at this point. This is starting to look like a multiple year process.

            Scrappydoo and Gdelgado0220 how long did it take for your backgrounds to clear after you met with the BI? I met with mine almost two months ago and have not heard anything since.

            For background. Passed poly a month ago and when I followed up, they said my file is waiting to be assigned to a BI

            There’s no official contact for OPR and when you reach out to CBP concerning your BI, they will most likely give you a generic response saying they’re not in charge of the background process but waiting on OPR. You could contact your case manager or [email protected] but they’ll most likely tell you what I just said. Where do you live if you don’t mind me asking? Certain places like NYC are considered “hotspots” and take forever for a BI packet to be picked up by an investigator.

        • Anyone run into the issue yet, where there is no apartments or housing near your port? And I mean no reasonable housing within a 2 hr drive!

            Not trying to be a wise guy so please dont take it that way - did you not research the area prior to applying? I just did a quick search on zillow and theres literally nothing in that area.

            OFO has long past practice of hiring unaware people from locations far removed from the rural, isolated, remote ports applicants are offered and accept.

            It seldom turns out well or successful.

            corsair I did research and at time there was apartments with openings 2 years ago when started process. The apartments when they have an opening fill quickly as I’ve discovered talking to people from there. I’m just gonna have to do what I gotta do. Hopefully can find something by Feb after the academy is finished

        • Something I just realized I don't know about this job. I know it's a 24/7 staffing but what kind shifts do people work? Is it 3 shifts per 24 or are people working 10's or even 12's?

            It depends on the port. 8 hour shifts are standard.

            Many ports don't run 24/7. Many bid positions within a port don't run 24/7.

            You can find 13-14 hour alternative shifts...in the right port. Most alternative shifts probably run either 12 hour, 10 hour or 9 hour. Some ports don't offer alternative scheduling in any form.
