  • Has anyone got the call for the drug test before hearing from your background investigator? I’m scheduled to take my drug test tomorrow and haven’t been contacted my investigator yet. Could be bc I already have secret clearance and they’re using that background investigation?

      I have as well with a couple other of my coworkers. We all came in under provisional though. We only have public trust clearance so I don’t think it has anything to do with your prior clearance

      I stand corrected. Went back and looked at my application. I did choose provisional. Thanks for the responses

      Swsports22 what announcement are you in and do you remember signing a provisional or just checked it off on your application.

      I took my drug test about two weeks after passing my poly but before getting scheduled for my BI. I think it may have to do with the provisional clearance, which I chose.

  • Got call from Border Patrol with job offer, but I already decided to go for CBPO and I'm waiting for their call now. Feels crazy to decline BP offer, but I didn't want to accept and later leave the BP academy to accept CBPO because I know it's what I'd rather do. Hope the wait for the call for CBPO isn't too long.

      @hopejoy...MHC would close out the BP application, since the job was offered and accepted. The OFO application would continue until either by some action or inaction the applicant closed it...or the odd chance that MHC never made a final offer.

      I got the call for BP the same day as CBP. I just told
      BP I wanted CBP but I'll accept their offer until I hear from CBP and the gentleman from BP forwarded my info to CBP... which I guess led them to call me quicker since i advised i wanted CBP

      Hopejoy I knew what I wanted so when they called I told them before they named all of what they were offering. BP did call me the next day to confirm I took the CBP offer with their offer still on the table.

  • Question for you guys...if someone gets hired at 38 years old, with no prior fed LEO experience and no military, can they later switch to like the DEA or FBI? I know the cut off for them is 37, I was just curious if it adds any time, or its a hard "no, you are stuck with CBP" as far as federal LEO goes.

      You pretty much answered your own question but sometimes the strangest things happen within agencies. My advice or suggestion is to complete the hiring process and take it from there.

      To hire on at 38 the agency essentially gives you an age waiver. Any agency you'd be jumping to would have to honor that waiver.

      If you hire on with CBP after 38, FBI will not hire you because their cut off is 37.

      If you came in with an age wavier then your good to go 37 is the cut off for people who don’t qualify for an age wavier.

  • Who is still at 63% on the CASS app? It looks like I have to clear my background investigation to get a drug test. I hope my case is in adjudication because its been forever to move on from the next. Checking the app and see it in progress is no fun and hoping it turn green soon! Well goodluck to everyone!

        It takes a few days for quality control to go through the results. I took the poly earlier this month and my examiner gave me a verbal pass. So, I thought nothing of it. About a week later I get a call from the examiner and quality control wants me to retest.

        collapse thanks for sharing what announcement are you in and are you going to JFK. I’m waiting for my Polygraph exam to be scheduled. How long after SI did they call you or email you? Just curious I here all these horror stories about the poly any advise it seems like for every 10 only 3 pass the poly.

        I'm 18-6 I picked Champlain, NY, but if I get the call I'll ask if JFK is available.

        I did the SI in July and they called be for the poly at the beginning of Oct.

        Be calm, don't overthink is all I can say about the poly really. I failed in 2016, went in to this one with a been there whatever mindset.

        Rio rico about 20 mins from Nogales and cheaper and Sahuarita about a hour from Nogales and about 15 mins from Tucson more family oriented and expensive... I'm also thinking being closer to Tucson would be a good thing..

        Rio Rico is like 10 to 15 minutes from the port but schools are poor and housing options are limited compared with Green Valley or Sahuarita. Sahuarita is 40 to 45 minutes and schools are way better. There is also more to do there. There is not much in Nogales

    • Finished everything and waiting for the last call at 88% since last Friday. Feeling annoyed lol

      • How's it going everyone, applied May 2019, just got my email for E-qip and email confirmation for SI in June. It seems like the process for me is going pretty quickly. Why does it seem for everyone else that it is taking forever.

          Hal29 GL9, I'm starting my Eqip today. SI is 6/3 and just completed the form and dates for the medical exam.

          Brings another question the medical exam, where does that take place? Will I have to travel to Tucson or will it be a facility near me?

          The medical will be closer to you. They usually try to make it as convenient as possible.

        Does anyone know what the overtime opportunities are like at the New Orleans field office? I saw a PDF from CBP that had a recap of overtime budgets from 2014-2016 and New Orleans appeared to have the least amount of funding.
        There's this...

        https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/fi...0FY%202016.pdf

        That provides CBPO staffing levels based on Field Offices, N.O. included. Use this along with your other PDF and you can get an idea of the mean average in overtime offered up by each Field Office during those years.

          • Hi everyone, so i had my SI yesterday for CBPO. Everything went well, i answered everything with confidence. After the interview they just advised me to wait in the lobby. After that they just told me the SI was concluded and to wait for the results. I took one for BPA and they told me then and there that i passed. I know the same thing has happened to some people where they dont tell them anything and then still pass. How was it for those of you that did the SI for CBPO? Do they usually tell you there if you passed?
