  • Thanks guys. I declined the offer and will reapply. Looks like I will have to take the entrance exam again. Anyone know how good PHL is? It was on the list on the new announcement. l was considering that BWI or New York I'm guessing JFK.

        spd2008, it happens if they already have a TS clearance or get granted a provisional based on their eQIP and initial running of background. He'll still end up meeting with them before he goes to the academy.

    • He's already a GS9 and I'm a 7 so I think that has part of it

        reason why he probably got the provisional and went ahead on all that.

    • Also I picked the provisional because I know I don't have a background... So I agree, they gave it to him prolly because Hwa already a 9 I think.

        What you mean? Everyone has a background. It's more than just criminal. Residents, credit, job history, references. Everyone has a background.

        Pay grade has nothing to do with it. It's all about vetting checks and determination of low risk. Below is from an article on the DHS.gov site

        "CBP implemented a “provisional clearance” policy, which permits applicants who successfully pass the polygraph examination without any significant admissions to enter on duty to the academy while their background investigation is still on-going."

    • Well I am meaning I have never been arrested... Have good credit, stable work history etc....

        Its a set criteria to be eligible but I am pretty sure they have final say even if you meet the low risk factor. Think of it as a positive thing for yourself. If something comes up in your background you still have a job. If the background comes back negative for your boss hes out of a job.

    • Hello everyone; I applied for JA: CBPO 18-11 back on July 2018. I received my last update on July 23rd, 2019 saying that I was at the end of the hiring process. "Applicant BI is now @ IA Intake, waiting for the NAC (National Agency Check). Any idea how long that takes? Its been over a year since I applied and it just seems that the process is moving very slow.

        I applied in May 2018, 18-8, and still haven't met investigator yet, you were not moving slow. Issy2K everyone timeline is different, from what I've been reading, your process is moving faster than average. You are approaching the end... be patient....

        I am 18-11 too and met with my BI last month, July15th. Received a similar email on 7.25, but haven't heard anything since 8.2 ( BI met with reference and was interviewed.) The whole process has been a hurry up and wait kind of thing, but I know being so close to the end is hard to be patient. Sorry I cant help you much, but seems we are in the same boat. Good luck!

              Being bored allows people to ask a lot of questions....lol. the boot officer. Maybe me being tired. I was like what the hell kind of position is that.

              Hal29, Krash777 ... yeah, "boot" is a common military term for the "new guy." Back when there was spit shines on boots (thank you suede!) a boot was distinguished because of their highly polished, not scuffed boots. They hadn't done any "real work" yet. :P

              I know the LEO version is a "Probie" short for an Officer still in their "probation" period. Or "rookie" lol

          • Talonderiel good luck working those shifts, they have premium pay and are less busy. Day shift for the most part I’ve heard is the shift nobody wants.

              Krash777, well guess maybe I won't be a vampire much longer then! lol I'm used to the hospital schedules where even though nights and weekends get you more money.... the senior employees prefer the day schedules that allow for family events or enjoyment of nights/weekends off.

              I'm prepared to work the undesirable shifts. They tend to be more fun anyways :P

              Updated Eqip released to OPR.
              How long before background investigator contacted references and scheduled a meeting with me ? Anyone been thru this, please provide input. I know everyone is different. Just trying to have an idea. Thanks

                Thanks guys, I estimated I would be contacted within 1 month also, they will start talking to my references, employer, and meet me. After they come, I bet my job environment will be weird as heck. Bosses and coworkers will know I'm quitting.. Idk, I hope they finish the background fast after that, not dragging 6-8 months like some people so I can get the f out.
                Anybody experienced changing at workplace after investigator came? How you dealt with it?

                At first it was awkward. But it fades.

                Yes, you have to send an email in order for them to add your new employer.
