  • I took my polygraph recently and was there for over 4 hours and did not even end up taking the polygraph. They kept sending me into a waiting area, and at one point they had me in there for almost an hour. This was on 4/30, and I have not heard back yet about re-scheduling. The issue was something in my background that I disclosed before the test, he said he has to get approval before administering the test. My BI on CASS also changed to “pending” now.

      Must have been something pretty serious

      Never heard that before. Doesn't sound good. Ultimately, it's up to QC to decide so until you get the thanks but no thanks letter/e-mail, keep trucking.

  • I'm 19-4 and put in a preference of Newark NJ - if I want to switch my preference to Baltimore MD i'd have to reapply with a new announcement, correct? I'd assume any of the things I've completed would transfer over, would this "restart" my process and my time so far be a waste or do I just continue as is.

    I'm 50% in CASS atm waiting for poly but we know thats going to be awhile.




    **Edited**

    Screw it I switched locations - if this ends up working out I rather have done it to a location I'd want to be.

      If your a regular announcement you get more choices.

      Someone recently said they were dh and got JFK which is odd.

      Although Baltimore is only 3 hours away I rather just make sure its my preference incase its not offered - with JFK and a few others being close I don't want to risk it.

      Congratualtions!! How long was your process if you don't mind me asking.

  • How long after you guys are getting referred to TSU is it taking to get the call? I got referred 3 days ago.

    Comment


    • It looks like it all depends on the need of that port or border which determines the time frame. What announcement are you in just tying to get an understanding of how long before I get the call to my polyexam.

          CGK0311 where are you in the process?

          I’m 17-11, waiting for BI and Drug Test. It has been 19 months since I applied. I thought my wait was long.

          Hmmm.. 0311.. it's probably cause you're INFANTRY!! just kidding.. God loves the Infantry.. I was 17-10 and I just got the call last week. MHC called again today to confirm my EOD and sector. I don't know how far you are in the process but keep driving forward!!

          Appreciate the good thoughts.

      • Has anyone in CBP announcement 19-2 received email or phone call for the poly exam. I’m curious I see previous announcements and also those announcements after 19-2 are getting appointments.

          Are you talking about debts that you are making regular payments on? Debts such as student loans....etc.

          Yes student loans, old credit cards. Stuff like that. Not mortgage or car. Those are already getting paid on. Past debts.

          So, the issue arises not because an applicant has student loans for example, but it becomes a concern when the applicant has issues such as making payments.

          Just got word today I passed the poly. I applied to 18-7. I was told the process should go really quick from now. I’m already a federal officer with a secret clearance so hopefully it’s quick

          BPO is 40 questions, short story read and answer the ? Pertaining to the story, it’s tricky so you have to take your time and take notes.
