      As others have said, you will be asked to leave or be recycled if you are lucky. There is ZERO excuse to not pass the FGS standards.

      Can anyone tell me what is the length that needs to be completed at FLETC. When is the test given as soon as you go to training or at the end of your training? Any feedback is appreciated

      My two BIs called from same area code where I reside. I’m 18-6. Still waiting on background to clear after 8 months.

  • Hey guys. Just got out of the polygraph and I’ve got a bad feeling. I was very nervous in the beginning and the results were getting sporadic. Later in the drug section I was calm and confident, but was called out for hiding something. I had already divulged some incidentals where I was around people who used marijuana, but never used it myself. He kept asking if I had anything else to say but I maintained my stance and said I have nothing on my mind nor was I hiding anything. We ended there after about 5 or 6 hours. I’m really bummed that the test ended that way, but cautiously optimistic that I might get a retest. I’ve seen others have similar results with the drug section so I know I’m not alone. Hopefully things might work out but I’m still worried.

        JStyleszx for me it took a little less than a month. They don’t send email once completed. You have to check your CASS for the green check mark.

    • Hello everyone

      CBP and military. Whatever comes first is what I will take. Both jobs have given me great incentives.

      I ended up taking the cbp exam in the end of December of 2018. On February of 2019, I received my passing results with a great score. I called CBP and was informed that I am in the process to be called for the -------- polygraph.


      My background is extensive so I know I have a while for my background to clear. I am 19-3 TEXAS

      Anyone 19-3 with information on anything with the process.??????

      Some people in this forum are very disrespectful. Unfortunately my phone was cracked and it took information from text messages and made its own story. I just became aware it posted even without me okaying it.

      For those of you here in this wonderful amazing fantastic forum. If you think I am stupid think twice again gentlemen. Thanks for those replies. Ignorance will lead you nowhere.

      So I apologize for my text and hope those of you who replied with your arrogance chill out.

        You’re planning on joining the military or CBP.... you know you’ll need thicker skin than this right? Just saying..... you’re in for a surprise which everyone pops up first... why not just join the military from the get go? Last that I remember you speak to a recruiter, take the asvab, go to meps and off you go on your said ship date.....

    • Hi, i'm new to this forum... i'm 19-7 applied april 2019 have passed written Test, medical, physical, SI, equip paper work is all on green...50% on app... been waiting for 3 weeks for Polygraph and no email/call yet. I see it will take a few months before I advance. It surprises me to see some people in youtube and other webpages who say it took them a month from start to poly. I'm keeping my hopes up hoping it happens sooner rather than later. I'd appreciate any help with time frames for people who waited for polygraph. Thank you.

        Theres no set time frame as everyones case is different - theres MANY factors that go into this from what I gathered reading over the last several months. My only advice as someone who's waiting, just forget about it and when it shows up it's time. Large majority of people fail the polygraph so put your time and effort into your current job or pursuing other ventures as this is FAR from a guarantee.

        The handout we received during our SI stated 12-16 weeks from the date you passed the SI you'd be scheduled for your polygraph. I'm going on week 13 and don't expect to hear until at least end of August. Best of luck on your journey, maybe you'll get a call early.

        I agree with corsair, I think poly location, duty location, openings available, medical issues, # of factors in your background, (foreign contacts, jobs, education, criminal history, credit, etc.) ALL play into the speed we get THE CALL...

    • Anybody from 19-6 getting polygraph yet?

        I did the same. Just let them know if you’re still interested in CBPO and they will call back. It’s not uncommon but BPA usually calls first

        Most instructors expect you to be either clean shaven or capable of growing a beard. No in between. Per the grooming standards CBPO's are allowed beards.

        ES90 what is your definition of being "capable of growing a beard." on a serious note that is awesome I was told you had to shave while in the academy.

        ie no patches, thick and luxurious. No stubble with the excuse of "oh I'm growing beard".

      • I hear that the whole process right now is at a stand still
        because DHS is currently replacing those in charge of CBP hiring and making the process more efficient. Things are expected to start moving soon when they make these changes. Hang in there everyone! Anybody interested in starting a WhatsApp for 19-3 Miami, let me know.
        Currently at 38%, waiting for follow-up medical paper work to clear which I submitted 2 weeks ago. It has been 14 weeks since my SI interview with no signs of a polygraph. I also confirmed that if you are a federal worker applying to CBP, the incentive is off the table so if I were you pick where you really want to go!

          From my perspective, the process has been relatively smooth. I applied for an Agent position on Super Bowl Sunday Here is my timeline thus far:

          2/1 Applied
          2/3 Online OPM Entrance Exam (PASS)
          2/20 Written Exam Scheduled
          2/15 Exam Taken
          2/25 Exam Results (PASS)
          2/25 BI Packet Submitted
          2/27 MED Appt (PASS)
          3/14 SI (PASS notified 3/20)
          4/25 PF1 (PASS)
          5/30 POLY (PASS)
          7/7 "The Call"
          7/10 Report and School date issued.

          Stick with it, folks! From my understanding, if you are taking an Agent position you should expect to be where CBP needs you---just watch the news and you'll know where that is.

          Good luck and God speed!
