      Very good news sounds like they will hit the 19's soon so I should have my Poly by Feb or March. I told them I would travel anywhere in the US dont know if that helps speed it up or not.

      19-2 I really don’t know how they schedule people for the poly. I took my SI in January 2019 and got contacted for my first poly in May and took it in June. I know people personally who applied way before me for same location and still waiting. The only difference is I chose to take my poly in Orlando instead of Miami. So maybe it goes by how many applicants are in line for that poly location.

      Hang in there folks your turn will come just be positive. And try to keep your mind occupied so you won’t be thinking about it that much. Just my two cents.

      David1984 I hope your right. I live in Orlando, and obviously selected Orlando as polygraph location. I'll be doing back flips if I could get a poly in at the 5 month mark.

  • Location of poly exam has some reason. That’s great hopefully soon they will be heading up North to see other applicants. The waiting game continues.

        See told you, congrats. I do believe that Nopa plays a role in ensuring that you aren’t vulnerable to blackmail, since the agency is already aware of your negative situation.

        Lapantoja11 should be soon. I cleared background Friday, called for drug test Monday, did it Tuesday, and just received the call today. They offered Arizona, California, Texas, the usual critical Need. I asked for Florida (Miami or Orlando) waiting for them to check and call me back.

        It's a decent sized port. Considerably smaller than Miami airport...but the port at Miami airport is huge by CBP standards.

        I have zero first hand experience with Miami...for what that's worth.

        Thanks merlin436. I emailed them about switching to Boston airport. I originally wanted Miami airport, but it wasn’t available.

    • Currently at FLETC if anyone has questions. DM me and I’ll reply when I can.

    • Wondering if anyone can answer this.. I’m currently a Fed employee and my salary is higher than GS-9 Step 10 for Los Angeles. Will they match my exact pay or can they only max me out at 9 step 10?

        My bet rests on an offer not exceeding GS-09/10. Obama killed off mandated pay matching years ago.

    • 18-3 here.

      Finally took the poly today lasted about 7 hours. Didn't get an inconclusive outcome, pass nor failed. Time ran out so the examiner couldn't continue. Will have to wait for OPR to decide my outcome. Have anyone been on the same situation as me?

        Damn, 7hrs...I didn't get result at the time either. 5.5hrs for me. Exhausted. Tired. Sleepy. Examiner emailed 2 days later to let me know I passed, no additional testing needed. CASS updated 2 days after that... I hope you passed man, assembly-jef from what you said, worst case, they call you back for another round of just whatever portion they couldn't test you yet. Wish you best of luck. Hal29 lol not time limit but examiner probably has a date after work, so he/she gotta go....

        Both of mine where over 5 hours long for CBP.... The local PD polys that I did were no more than 2 hours from in the door to handshakes out with passing information. Crazy the differences.

        @ assembly-Jeff congrats on completing your poly exam. Just curious how long did you wait to have it scheduled. Im waiting to get called for the polygraph for NY area. Are you looking to get to JFK. Any feedback is always appreciated

        I will probably have to take it again from where we left. The examiner told me she didn’t finished all the questions that she needed to ask me. So I’m assuming I will have to go another time of I failed it.

        fonzi7979 I also applied to JFK and since my medical cleared I waited for the poly about 9 months and took it here in New York.

    • How long after OPR has your BI does it take to call for the drug test and say u passed? Been waiting for two weeks

        Have you met an investigator yet?

    • I have been looking at applying for chicago, but I have to get lasik first. About 4-5 years ago I took adderall once and vyvanse 4-5x to keep me awake and help focus on my studies for finals in undergrad (not my prescription; took maybe 1 pill per semester). I know the website says wait at least 3 years after your final use, but does anyone have experience with this? I do not want to spend 4k on lasik if there is no chance for me to get hired. I have not used any other drugs.

        You should be fine. I have read stranger things on this forum so it seems like there is no set standard as it is a case by case basis.

    • Im at 100% on my CASS and have an EOD date in February 2020 and will be attending FLETC in Feb.

      How is port and airport of BWI? The moral, schedules and etc...

        you cant disclose info about the poly due to NDA, but you can read the general guidelines on the CBP website.

        don't research, don't read, don't look for any info about poly, just come in with an emptied mind, not knowing anything about the poly and a goal of being 100% truthful, even if they ask you something shameful , you should be fine. MrAce when is your poly date man?
