  • Good evening guys

    I recently got DQed due to color deficiency because I failed the Ishihara & Lanthony D-15 tests. Does that mean I can never apply again?
    If I apply again, will I get a chance to redo the color vision test?

    All advice / suggestion are welcome. TIA

      You can reapply to the next announcement as far as I know.

  • Do the case managers work on Saturdays? My EQUIP account got lock, I don't understand I tried lower and upper case on my last name, and also use the word Unknown for city, anyone else had this issue and had to contact the case manager to unlock their account ?

      It’s possible, doesn’t hurt to try calling them. You should have your case managers direct number at the end of the Eqip email you received

      Did you download the pdf version of the sf-86? Get all the information ready so you can just refer to that when filling it out on eqip when you get it unlocked

      BenGrynsztajn Yes I did thanks, I just need to input everything.

  • MY e-QIP went from “under hrm review” to “in progress” what exactly does in progress mean & are there chances it can be sent back to me?

      You’ll most likely get an email on Monday saying they need something updated and recertified

      I updated and released the eqip yesterday after it was sent back to me after 2 months.

      It should get assigned to a new case manager at HRM who’s going to review it and then send it off to OPR again.

      It’s easy bro, be logical

  • MadameAshley douglasgene1 when I got the call they had slots for a month out and some even the same month. Nothing in the process is cookie cutter and is all different person to person. The worst thing to hear but best advise I think to give is to plan nothing until you get that call. That goes for people at 10%-90% completion on CASS. While it is irritating for some to be two years into the process and see others 6 months in and getting the call, they need to realize how many moving parts there are when hiring to the scale CBP does.

      They prob eased up on the time line, they are cranking out academy classes now. 6 classes are suppose to be in Georgia in the next 60 days. However for the most part everyone I’ve talked to has had a 5 month average.

      Lasik is done. I'm seeing at 20/15 now. And yes, it's amazing.

      Medical never cleared for me and I found out that my uncorrected vision was the issue. I was 20/400 uncorrected and they wanted 20/100 or better. Lasik was done 07/19/2019 and I have to wait 90 days to get a new vision assessment done by my optometrist.

      So 90 days for me is 10/17/2019. So my plan is to reapply in late September. Everything from my original announcement will transfer over. My PFT, Exam, SI and then with my new vision assessment and then hopefully I'll finally get my medical cleared so I can move onto the Poly.

      Quite a lot to go through but not having to deal with glasses or contacts is pretty great.

      And so the wait continues....but at least the view is better.

      • I just accepted the final offer for Charleston, SC!

        For those of you who are worried about pay matching they said they will 100% match current federal pay up to a max of step 10 within the grade you are hired at. As far as I know that is for current federal employee's.

        Now time to look for a place to stay in Charleston, SC! EOD = Mid november, Glynco = December

          Only place they offered me near the east coast was somewhere in Tennessee, did not ask where. I was told by a good source you can get Atlanta, GA / Savannah, GA at this time if you are firm with them. That's what I did with my pick. Pretty sure it is Dec 2nd for Glynco.

          Did you get Savannah !? Thats where im trying to go !? Achyuta
          Four people just got sworn into Savannah, Ga which is kinda upsetting because that means they probably going to be full capacity by time i get my final offer

          I took mine on 5/31/19 and it is still pending. I have seen people on here clear it in 1 to 2 weeks though. Probably depends on which region you are applying for though. I am from New York and I applied for JFK. The doctor at the medical place said that I passed everything, so I am thinking it is an administrative part that is holding it up.

      • I didn’t lie on my Polygraph today and still failed. Good luck guys.

          kingreem#11 they told you failed or inconclusive. Because I know someone who failed on something for serious crime and never got a chance to retest. If conclusive they give you another opportunity.

        I passed my polygraph on the second try and got the green check mark on my CASS today but have not received an email is that normal? I took it this past Tuesday so I was curious about the no email. Also how long is the wait for the drug test after passing the polygraph?



        I’m in the same boat as you! Waiting to get contacted by the investigator.

          MattyjayG, everyone seems to have a different level of email correspondence..... I never got an email saying I passed the poly's. Just got the verbals and then 2 - 3 weeks later, a check came.

      • Hopefully I get a call back for a second attempt on the poly

          Post-academy, taser carriage is usually determined on the port level. Some issue them to individuals, some ports have pool takers, some don't routinely offer them at all.
