      @Srhernza so I finally got a call back from my POC from my EOD location... He sent a nice email with answers to questions I would of asked. He also advised some officers there will help out with any of my needs so I shouldn't have to worry about nothing while I'm out there.

      Scrappydoo that’s nice. I haven’t received squat. I did talk to my spouse’s friend who used to be in the BP and he gave me a lot of useful info in regards to what to pack and what to expect overall at the academy. Thankfully I live close to my EOD location. Best of luck.

          Wish I knew why so slow....I'm going to assume the shutdown had something to do with it, and I had to take the Poly 3 times which took a little time also.

      • Can anyone in the academy PM me on details about what to prepare for? I.E what I would need to buy, what my pay will look like (GS7) and stuff I should have ready?

          Your pay will be your base pay w/ locality. Nothing added. No Sunday pay or shift differential.
          Here is the pay scale. https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-over...ement-officer/

          I was just at FLETC for BOP. If you have the option, bring your personal vehicle. I didn't see anyone on bikes in April. Everyone walks and takes the shuttles to class. Savannah & Jacksonville are 1hr away. St. Simons & Jekyll Island are 15-20 minutes. All the major stores are close by.

      • To my fellow 2 timers, did you guys notice anything different in regards to the poly? Took mines 5 years ago and DQ'ed. Round 2 will be on 6/3, Obviously I do not want anyone to violate any terms of the polygraph, but anyone notice it to be any different from the past? I put everything I could possibly think of on my SF86. Im nervous, anxious, and excited all at the same time. Im taking it in Escondido, CA.

          Same thing for me.
          I did 3 poly's in 2013 for BPA. #3 didn't go so well. That one felt like an interrogation.
          Nervous to do it all over again for CBPO.

          Dang 3 times is a lot. Im nervous since my 1st time was such a bad experience. This time I put everything on my SF86. I legit have nothing else left to disclose, so we shall see. Im just going in relaxed and ready. If all else fails, the airport police is hiring like crazy in LA. I just have to say bye to 9 years of federal service towards retirement. But hey, such is life!

          During my SI, I asked if anything had changed in the last 6 years with the poly. They said yes, so I am hoping for the best this time around.

      • Ok, so i am currently waiting for my poly to be scheduled. My eQIP has been submitted to OPR. My concern is, i checked the CBP website to see details of the poly. And it said there has to be 2 years from last drug use. Now, i dont use drugs but i did try that CBD plant or whatever which has no THC and is legal to buy in Texas. I did that in Nov. before even thinking about applying to this. Will that disqualify me? I did disclose everything on the e-QIP. What have you guys heard related to this?

          Lol ok everyone, i didnt come here for a lecture. I didnt study criminal justice or law enforcement. So i dont know everything like you guys "do" which is why i came here to ask, not to be lectured. Evolution81 unlike most of you my dream hasnt always been to be a federal employee. Like i said on my initial post, i tried CBD before applying. I was told about the application by a friend then by a recruiter at the end of last month. I applied and here we are now. Believe what you want. Its not you who i have to be honest to lol. If im found unsuitable.it will be because of that 2 year rule. Not because im too dumb to pass exams or not fit enough or medical issues. If i dont get in this time then after 2 years if i want this ill re-apply. No biggie.

          Not that you are, but don't give the comments of Evolution81 and YOUNG718 any further thought. You're an entry level candidate and have made mistakes like everyone else. Probably far less than those two. As you mentioned, you were honest about it and that's a huge plus for your integrity and accountability moving forward. Take it one step at a time and let the chips fall where they may. You'll be fine with or without this agency.

      • 17-10 here question I see alot of people here saying I EOD on such date and I enter the Academy on such date. Can someone explain the difference. I understand that EOD is Enter on Duty, but do you go to wherever you are stationed first and then go to the academy? If that's the case where do you stay while EOD and when you do go to the Academy are you allowed to go on your own and bring a vehicle?

          The vast majority of new hires do pre-academy at their port of hire. Some exceptions might occur. Most of those are likely to put a person somewhere probably within his port's service area and almost assuredly within it's Field Office.

          Ok nice so it's kinda like I figured. Pretty much if I choose Philadelphia since I'm only 15mins away I could just stay at my house and when it's time for Academy just drive down. Anyone know if this Pre-Academy will be paid time. Dosent matter to me just curious.
          Thanks for all the info

          Leave the tactical clothing at home. Don't risk the perception of being a Tackleberry.

          Suit on day one. Reasonable business casual thereafter...unless somebody important at your port tells you otherwise.

          One of the problems you will find is that there are 20 Field Offices and 328 distinct ports. All the FOs and many ports view themselves as largely autonomous entities who get to interject their views and opinions on things...like how to define the ambiguous "business casual". The net result being that there are dozens of interpretations of a great many "rules" out there and, as with most things OFO, it really depends at the port level as to what your local management and union viewpoints are.

      • How long does it take for progress so show on the cbp app? I don’t have a check for the eqip or medical. Eqip was submitted last week and the medical was Thursday.

            If you want northern MN like Grand Portage, I-Falls, Warroad, Lancaster, etc...I imagine your chances are good.
            MSP or anywhere else...not so good.
