  • Quick Question: What is after "the call"? Meaning, your start date is in 4 months. Should you expect an email, another source of documentation, another phone call, or just show up on your EOD date?

      You should receive an email and maybe stuff in the mail 2 weeks before your EOD

      Thank you Dezada74

  • Has anyone had problems contacting TSU? I've been trying to contact them to pick my port but I havent had luck all day. My case manager says to just call them alot and leave messages.

      SpenserJ9 this last time that I got "the call" I was told I would receive a call the next day to give my selection. That day came and went and no call back. I called them everyday for a week before getting someone to return my messages so i could select my new port location.

      Dammit. I knew I shouldve just chose right there and then. Do I need to worry at all?

      SpenserJ9, I had the same issue... I called them back on the number they said to call them on, which goes straight to voicemail.... I even emailed the hiring email account.

      The same girl who called me for the final call, called me back on the 2nd day. Called Wed, I blew up their voicemails and email on Thursday before the 1600 hrs deadline I was given.... She called on Fri to see if I made a decision.

      It was a video tape version so it had to be sent off then reviewed. They told me you would probably take a few weeks before I got an answer and they were right.

  • AZ2019 you get your final selection letter about a month out and your welcome packet about 2 weeks out. You probably won’t hear anything until then unless you haven’t done your BI yet.

      A secret clearance might not mean a thing, but I have a current (been re-investigated periodically once already) TS/SCI that is being used both as a Reservist, and with my current full-time employer also and I never met with a BI. Woke up one morning to my BI being green and an email later that day saying I had been referred to TSU. I tried to do some research and see what was in the DHS personnel security handbook, and there's tons of "reciprocity" thrown around in it, but nothing cut and dry.

  • Got my port assignment. El Paso it is.

      What was your job announcement?

  • How long did everyone have to wait for an answer on the polygraph? I took my first one 6/7, was given a verbal pass but was told a week later I'd have to come back and take it again. I took the second one 7/12 and haven't gotten any update or email.

      rayomeel194 I took my second one on 7/16. On 7/19 I logged into my CASS and had the green check mark. I never received an e-mail of passing or phone call. I think everyone is different.

  • For veterans that want to use there GI Bill whole at academy.

    CBP employees wishing to use this program must, as the "student", directly connect with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) via the following link and submitting the required On-the-Job (OJT) training forms for Post 9/11 G.I. Bill purposes:

    https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/d..._Factsheet.pdf

    https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/o...enticeship.asp
    The CBP employee then works with their supervisor to provide VA with all required paperwork for the G.I. Bill payment.

    • Danieldv9 I get the welcome packet soon and the final selection email just gives you your starting salary and port info and tells you to contact your port after 24hrs to discuss your EOD. There is also some forms you have to sign.

      • Officially got the green check on my polygraph! Sitting at 63%. Took the first poly on 7/23. On 7/26 I was told to go back in for a second exam and it got scheduled for 7/29. And now today 7/31 I checked CASS and it cleared, although I haven't received any email from CBP.

        • 18-9 here, this August will be one year since I passed my SI... still haven’t heard anything. To the point where I’m fed up with this joke of a hiring process, ****es me off more that 19s are getting there academy dates.

          what to do? Any advise? Keep waiting? When is long enough long enough?

          Even willing to send an email out, who to address it to, I understand that probably won’t do anything...

            MrAce I hear ya buddy. Unfortunately theres not one to really call about the Polygraph. They have fixed it over the years but some are still failing I myself had to take it 3 times....but finally got through it. Whenever you do take it just relax and do follow the instructors instructions all the way through.

            Have you done medical or PFT? Its odd you wouldn't hear anything about the next steps after SI for so long. Back in 2016 I had medical scheduled 3 weeks after the SI. I'd recommend contacting the MHC or maybe someone can share their recruiter's info with you.

              SpenserJ9, sweet!!!

              I'm thinking it's going to be between SFO, LAX, and WA (Seattle or Pt Roberts)..... allows me to double my military Reserve career and have the option of seaport and airport.

          • I had to present additional medical paperwork for asymmetrical hearing loss. I went to an Audiologist and they put no for "Hear whispered conversation" this chart is under the "Physical requirements section of the position section". In the comments she put may not be able to hear very quiet whispers... . I called the audiologist and to do a retest and she wouldnt budge. She also said if she couldnt answer for 100% certainty she would have to put "no" . Question is would this be a show stopper? and I should definitely go for a second opinion right?
