      No, but having bad debts, bad credit may affect Albax0385

    No. As long as your dept is good, you do not have past due accounts more than 180 days past due (late) you should be fine.

      Thank you, I was worry about that, credit is good no delinquency or collection

  • Hello Fam, 18-12applicant. Anyone here have to retake their PFT1? I'm nearly finished with the process just waiting for the background to clear. I'm assuming this is good news since I may be approached the finishline.

      Yes, I reapplied for the El Paso announcement. Everything else has transferred with exception of the PFT1. Even the medical transferred over. V_AntCBP

      MissAmitious right, if you reapplied, and PFT1 already expired.. You gotta do it again. They will be contacting you to schedule your PFT1, I have a friend who has to retake because he reapplied. When I reapplied, it was only 11 months since I took it, so my transferred over.. I had to retake entrance though because I took before August 5th 2018.

      V_AntCBP same thing with medical (eye, ekg etc...)? if it expires after 2 yr mark but you are not reapplying, they won’t ask you to take it again?

  • as long as your announcement is active, you don't need to retake PFT1, 2ndGenFed if you reapply after pft1 expired, then you would need to retake. That is my understanding. The medical and Eqip you just need to recertify. My PFT1 expired 2 months ago, its still Green on CASS.

      V_AntCBP That makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.

  • Hey y'all, I reapplied to 19-8 announcement but Montana wasn't offered. I'm the new announcement they have 4 ports available. Can I still ask for those ports now that they are available?

      you can surely ask, when i got my call the port I elected wasn't part of my announcement but since it was made available in other announcements i asked for it ans they said yes.

  • I’ve followed this since I applied and figured I’d post finally.

    19-9 JFK GS-7

    7/8/19: Tentative offer

    7/9/19: Eqip Submitted

    7/10/19: Medical Scheduled

    7/18/19: Medical Completed (Green Check on 7/22/19)

    7/22/19: Fitness Scheduled

    7/24/19: SI Scheduled

    7/26/19: Fitness Completed (Green Check on 7/29/19)

    8/21/19: SI Completed ( Verbal Pass & Green Check Next Day )

    8/26/19: Update Eqip

    9/14/19: Eqip Submitted

    CASS: 50% (Eqip, Medical, Fitness SI)

    What comes first, polygraph or meeting with a background investigator? I know its a waiting game now but just wanted to know the answer lol

    Also, if I wanted to add another location would I have to completely reapply or just wait towards the end for “the call” & let them know then? Not a big deal but JFK is backed up and I know other locations move a bit faster which I wouldn’t mind moving.

      poly first, than meet with background investigator, than drug test and the call.
      Depend of what your announcement is? is it direct hire or regular or Vet?
      If you are a Regular or Vet, just wait for the call and ask for the location you want, if its available, you will mostly get it,
      If you are a Direct Hire, you are going to the South West Border, AZ, CA, TX,
      If you want something else, have to reapply zTiger
      You just applied in July, the way it goes now, you are looking at to have poly scheduled next summer sometimes... unless you are super lucky that they somehow pick you....Good luck with your process

      From my understanding the location is irrelevant if you're taking the polygraph in a HIGHLY populated area such as Newark etc.

      Regular announcement. & not sure if I understand that polygraph part. I thought people in other locations were getting their polys faster which is why i was wondering if I could take it at a different location but still keep my same work location I applied too

  • I just submitted my 2nd round of "Additional Medical Documentation"
    Anyone else pass medical after a 2nd eval? I don't know how picky they are.

      I passed after my second request for additional paperwork. Total time was about 4 months to clear and get the checkmark.

      Ok, so it looks like i'm not alone. My CBP med eval was just over 4 months ago, so hopefully they will look over this new packet I sent up and give me the thumbs up!

  • 17-11 GS9 CBPO

    6 months after passing the poly, I am finally meeting with the background investigator for the 1st time on Saturday. He said his deadline to turn in my background is next Thursday.

      6 months!? Must be very busy at your location. Background can take anywhere from 2 months to 12 months depending on your background file. Goodluck you are almost to the finish line.

      Wow, that's very long. Usually a month or two after poly you get to meet investigator,
      Yeah they all have deadline to submit their investigation and usually very tie deadline now.
      tell your boss yet? jamoranto good luck, hopefully everything is moving quick from now on for you

      I originally applied October 2017. My announcement was negotiable when offered but originally selected SFO. I prefer LAX, if available.

  • anyone on this forum awaiting for polygraph and is in announcement 19-2 for JFK. Wondering if anyone received a date for the polygraph exam.

    • hey, I’m leaving on 09/26/2019 to start my EOD but on USA staff it says I have tasks for my paperwork for direct deposit and taxes are due 09/25/2019.. isn’t the reason for the 2 weeks of training at the port before FLETC to help you on filling out all the information HR requests.. Do I fill out the tasks to the best of my abilities or do I wait until my first start date EOD and fill everything out with everyone?

        " paperwork for direct deposit and taxes" must be submitted before you EOD. Part of the onboarding process to make sure you start getting paid your first day.

        On my final selection letter it states to not sign, certify or submit any paperwork until you EOD. Yours might be different, just try to read your emails carefully

    • So what's the work schedule like at JFK? Is OT mandatory?

        jjsince97 I am making good use of my time (only two months waited so far), I am getting ready to go for my masters in accounting. Either way its a win win for me, get the masters go in as a 9 in CBPO in the end.. or get the masters and get a better career. Make sure you continue with your life like you never applied for this.

    • Good morning,

      I'm a 19-10 guy. I passed (Written, SI, PT1) all within the last month.

      I'm waiting on my medical "further review" . I had a surgery 3 years ago, so I'm sure that will need extra paperwork.

      Last week I submitted my Poly waiver because I have a TS/SCI. I saw they sent it to OPM so I'm waiting to hear back from that.

      Because I'm active duty the second PT test got waived, so that's nice.

      Now just waiting to get and email or call to see what my next step is.

      Hope all is going well for you guys.

      • bchalmers , everybody is waived on PT2 now and you should have had PT one waived with your military PT test and your written waived since you’re military.

          Krash777, I applied for a Direct Hire position and I had to do all of that, It was easy, no problem, but it would have been nice to skip that.
