      Bentley32, at the beginning of the SI, before and after you sign the Non-Disclosure Act, they tell you the exact measures on which you'll be graded and thusly, you have everything you need to pass it.

      Listen, Breath, think and then answer.... Ya' got this!

      I am really bad at interviews and have no prior law enforcement or military and I still passed. I felt it was even easier than the TSA structured interview because it is not based on your experience.

    So background investigator just finished talking to my wife, mom, neighbors, and reference today.
    He told me he tries to finish and submit everything by Tue Sept 10.
    Lets the wait begin...
    Hopefully background just clears in few months, no NOPA bs,
    Afraid one thing they will try to ding me for is foreign passport. they dug very deep, asking all kind of questions to different people about this 15 years expired passport. I was born in another country and came here using that passport and US Visa. After I got citizenship, i traveled everywhere using US passport, when I went back to my original country to visit, I had to apply for a temp Visa. But they seem to very interested about that expired passport. Anybody got hired with an expired foreign passport before?
    See guys, even after passing poly, there are still a lot of stuff to worry for.

      it should not be a problem if you are a legal citizen now, you werent born here so of course you might have that expired passport around, I still have mine. you just dont throw those things out.

      I got hired with a valid foreign passport. They don't mind you being a dual citizen. It took 7 months for my background to clear. They just had to interview someone that was aware of my dual citizenship as part of the BI. They also ask if they were to ask you to give it up what would you say? But FYI they did not asked me to renounce my other citizenship and I doubt they ever will. They said its fine to have other citizenships/passports as long as you listed it on your BI when you applied for the job. You are not allowed to add more citizenships/passports further down the road after you are hired.

  • Still waiting for my DT to clear, took it on aug 27

  • Been MIA from this thread for awhile, I’m at FLETC now so if anybody has any questions I’ll try my best to answer! Anybody who already has a EOD date all I have to say is don’t wait until the last second to try to get into shape. Start now!

  • To all in this process it seems like there is no time frame except need to be patient and wait your turn. Yes it is frustrating for me too because I have reached the age limit so now it’s either meant to be or not to be. I hope all does go well I will keep you posted. To those who have completed all and are off to the academy congratulations.

    • So 3 weeks after my poly, I haven’t heard from them since... and i get this email. Does that mean i won’t get contacted by a BI? and just wait for drug test?

        Leon0215 its hard to say, i have seen some people that actually get to seem them, others get their dates and even go to the academy and still havent seen their investigator and their BI is pending. But if you in fact got a provisional, you are a strong candidate to clear your BI so i would worry to much.

        Leon0215 Have you had a clearance before?

        I ask because the wording of the message is specific. Your pending "final adjudication", which means the investigation report is completed. Unless the adjudication official requests additional information I doubt an investigator will contact you.

        Dodge_Guy19-4 i’m not sure, i don’t think i did... i only worked for bureau of prisons as a CO before but that was 4 years ago and i only did that for a year, after that i became local cop til now... the only background clearance i got is thru the state... so i don’t think i got any clearance at all. but i hope you are right about that... i just wanna get called in

    • I want to know if anyone will be at FLETC in October? My academy dates are 10/15/2019 to 02/27/2019. I have heard through the grapevine FLETC fitness has got a lot tougher as of March of this year. Some things I have heard is TRT is now every day and they make you run far more often and do more push ups than before. I was at FLETC in July 2018 but dropped out due to personal reasons. Going there in the summer is a bad idea. The humidity was awful, I've never sweat so much in my life. They still had us running in 90 degree weather. My main struggle is running in general. I can't run the full 1.5 miles and have to walk parts of it. With the walking I'm doing it in 18:30. I get shortness of breath is my problem.

        Hal29 thats a good score for a navy seal officer. There is no way that they would require that much for customs job. Who knows though maybe navy seals and CBPO's are doing joint missions now.

        sadie99 I am Fletc now that is 100% false I been going on 3 months and we have only ran the 1.5 miles once in TRT which was today and you only have TRT every day for last month or so and your TRT Instructor will not have you doing 100 pushups a day they only have you do the FGS Standards which is a 1.5 Miles in 15 mins 220 yard dash and 45 seconds and 24 push-ups in one minute

    • Whats going on all

      My medical exam on https://careers.cbp.dhs.gov/hrm/ updated to the green check mark today - what can I expect next?

      Regarding my background and drug test, they are blue and in an "in progress" state. My polygraph is grayed out and says "pending".

      Thoughts?

        background and drug test will stay like that almost until the end. up next for you should be waiting for the POLY which seem to have gotten longer lately.

    • Lapantoja11 so my drug test is still pending but today I missed “the call” with the final offer. Called them back and left a voice mail on the number they provided.
      Is it normal that no matter how many times you call that TSU number, nobody will ever picks up?

        They won't answer the call, you have to call back. I called a bunch and they literally won't answer, you have to leave a message and they will call you the next day. Don't stress, you will get it tomorrow

    • Finally got the call for polygraph yesterday. It’s monday. 18-8 took one year to be scheduled. After taking polygraph how long does it take until you find out if you pass or fail. Does the examiner tell you on the spot?

      • I finally got my EOD and FLETC dates (EOD Nov 18 and FLETC Dec 4)
        I got assigned to Douglas due to application being locked in to it apparently. I applied back in May of 2017. I was just wondering if anybody had any info on the day to day of the academy?

          Thanks, yeah the recruiter told me that it might be between 3 to 7 years depending on where I would want to go. And I'm just looking to see if anybody knows more or less an actual timeframe.

              My buddy from 19-7 cleared faster than I did, and is already scheduled for his poly end of this month. Obviously it is dependent on the location you choose and how fast you clear the earlier steps. And hope your file doesn't get lost under another stack of paperwork...
