        LAX is a huge port. I would imagine that they have access to plenty of overtime.

    • 19-1 DH
      About three weeks ago I was at 50% (e-QIP, physical, SI, and medical all cleared) and then I received an email stating I needed to have my e-QIP redone, but they didn't give me a reason why, and then I fell back to 38% with the e-QIP pending. I did notice that my case manager changed (although they did not notify me of that). Could that be the reason why? I submitted the new e-QIP about two and half weeks ago, and haven't heard of anything since. And also, will this new case manager be able to give me an update on the progress of getting my e-QIP cleared?

        When I had to redo mine they told me the areas that needed revision, seems weird.

        I’m in same boat submitted eqip , for first time had to make revisions, I’m pretty sure it’ll get rejected again I didn’t know all of my parents info on it. Hopefully my explanation in comments will suffice , know process had really slowed , did SI in March. I applied to be / ny area.

        Yup mine was the same, was stuck in 50% for 3 months then one day I got an email I needed to resubmit my E-QiP and also my Case Manager was going to be reassigned? So, essentially almost 6 months of nothing happened after my first submission. I am 18-9 DH. Reapplied for another 19-4 Regular announcement to see if that moves quicker.

    • Tomorrow will be 8 months since my SI pass date... No hold ups in medical or anything, just waiting for the Polly date. 18-9 here. This is the most anoyying aggravating process... I know the second I apply for any other jobs they will call me tho... Been with my current employer for over 4 years so I don’t want to leave because I don’t want even more job history on my background... keep seeing all these articles on how they are stream lining this process yet obviously no one is seeing any results... It’s just so stressful because the Polly seems to have a super high fail rate even for the people “who haven’t done anything wrong”... Anyone who Apply’s for this position more then once is crazy Lol

        Im probably not the only one but the fast track hiring process means nothing to be with this being one of many requirements "Must be willing to relocate to the Southwest border of the United States". It is what it is at the point, I understand your frustration but you're better off pretending like you never applied. What happens if you fail polygraph or BI - don't set yourself up for disappointment.

        merlin436 I think the pay thing really depends, If you come in as a GS-09 you're already making more base then BOP. I got an army NG friend that works BOP at the federal prison on FT. Dix. He's only a GL-05 and only will go to GL-07, GL-08 is competitive and anything higher is management at that point at least with CBP you go to GS-12 automatically.... Realistically after one year you should make more as a CBP officer even if you start at 5....

        My friend does say he gets a decent amount of overtime though but there's a lot of crazy action at the prison he works, more then I thought there would be it kinda took me by surprise when he told me the stuff he encounters on a daily basis.

        OK, if one starts as a GS-09. Most applicants start lower.

        A lot of ports lack the overtime/differential pay to push a person all that far. Many ports have plenty of both. As you said, it really depends. One thing about CBP and OFO in particular is that there is very few absolutes. Nearly every rule has it's exceptions.

        Same here 18-9 June 2018. Had to resubmit my E-QIP twice during the process. No idea when or why it’s taken forever for poly, going almost a year waiting. Reapplied to 19-4 regular announcement and everything transferred over, had to redo my medical for next week, so hopefully that speeds up my process. I did switch over to another job, higher pay less Hours, like others stated just forget you ever applied and move on with your life. Some people get lucky and finished and got the call In 4 months!

    • Probably a stupid question but does Dulles fall under Washigton-Baltimore-Arlington locality pay table? I see that Virginia Beach-Norfolk & and Richmond have their own.

    • I am currently on the 19-5 Job opening and chose Dulles, Va. I wanted to know what if I now want to choose Queens NY especially since it was also in the same opening. Is that something I talk about when they give me an offer?

        Except for Denver you're looking at very small ports that seldom have a need to hire off-the-street. Even Denver really isn't that big of a port to where they'd have a steady need to hire new people.

    • 19-5 JFK, got a green check next to eqip today. SI in two weeks, hope I don't fail it after getting this far.

        19-2 here, @ 50%. Still waiting on that call or e-mail for the polygraph. It's been about 1 month since I hit 50% and 2 months since I completed my SI.

    • 19-7. So far si and medical cleared. Waiting for poly to transfer over. Got an email to do e-quip. Just waiting on a couple more documents to attach. Sitting at 25% right now. Curious if pft will transfer over.

        Hal29 you would have to redo the pft portion because it’s different from CBPO. BP is sit ups 25 push up 20 and 14” step test for 5 min.

        Yeah I was just curious as my wife would love to move there. She has her sights set on grand junction. But closest port according to cbp site is gypsum. But the opm list shows denver/aurora and Colorado springs. Probably very very slim but I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask. She loves the mountains. So trying to find a happy medium. Happy wife is a happy life. As they say.

        I was originally 17-11 So my pft expired. Si and medical transferred over. Just waiting for poly to update, retake medical and update my equip with new documents. I'm sitting at 25%.

    • Anybody from NY recommend an audiologist? Gotta retake it. I think the initial medical that does your hearing is unfair. When I sat in the box I was still able to hear out of outside noise, which is probably why I failed

      • After reaching out, I got an e-mail response stating that the standard wait time for the poly could be 12+ months. I'm not sure why some of you were told to contact them if you haven't heard anything in 16 weeks...

          ontherunn That's what was written on "next steps after completing the SI" paper that was given to most of us when we went for our SI.

          Who did you reach out to?, that's an insane wait time for the Poly.

          I contacted [email protected] and that was the response that I was given. If anyone has a better contact to reach out to then I would appreciate if you could provide it.

          It may sound childish but at this point I’ve given just up hope. This is the most unorganized joke of an LEO hiring process. It’s hard to just “be patient” when I have to check my email every single day for a poly notification.

          wow a lot of 18-3s taking polys now, im glad im over that and took it in September.

      • Got the dreaded email today unfavorable polygraph results. I’ve past 3 polygraphs for LEO agencies, and fail this one. I can’t stress enough for everyone don’t put your life on hold for this job because it is literally a roll of dice if you get an examiner that thinks your being deceptive and not disclosing something major. I was 100% honest and forthcoming and after my post poly interrogation I told him I have nothing else to add. I’ve served in military honorably and lived a drug free life. I was accused of hiding or being deceptive on serious crimes which is totally unfair. The examiner was fine until the end where he turned into a interrogator. Anyways needed get this off my chest. Im looking forward to other opportunities to pursue. I want to wish everyone good luck in the process and have great careers with CBP.

          7878bg , Sorry to hear that. :\ I'm going in for round 2 myself. Poly said I was good at the meeting, then called and said QC didn't like something. So we will see.

          I too have passed 3 other poly's now for local jobs and am 60% through a local PD process, who will sponsor me through the academy. I heeded the advice early one to apply to multiple things because of the long waits and the dice roll that is the poly. I may/may not be in your shoes shortly, but I know I'd reapply after the wait period.... Plus I'll have over 2 years on the road experience and my OUPV license from the USCG, so options!

          Keep your head up, you answered everything honestly and can sleep at night knowing you are honest and straightforward. Try a local PD/SO, as their processes will probably be 6 months max, and you'd build a resume to come in higher if CBP is a goal in the end.

          Wish you the best, brotherman!
