      I’m pretty sure we should get an email with some items we need to bring. Also can ask during pre academy.

  • I had the BPA final job offer today, "the call". How much time will take CBPO to make the call?

      Mine took about a week after the BPA offer was given. I just kept telling BP that I'd like to hear both offers before making a choice, and they told me that they would continue to call OFO to let them know to call me.

  • Had my BI reach out to me because his report was kicked back to question me more on a discrepancy. On my EQIP, I had stated i had no foreign national contacts but when I met with the investigator, we talked about that question and I told him I had 1 and disclosed all the details which he added to the report. CBP kicked it back because I originally said no and the investigator said yes.

    There is already an explanation in his report so I don't know why they are questioning it again.

      I'm sure mine will be kicked back. I had previous work dates allllll messed up. I used the same work dates for TSA and the BI for them never said anything about them when I talked to him earlier this year. Luckily I had an amazing BI for CBP, and we went over all the dates and corrected everything, and he said these things happen. I'm hoping that since he fixed it then all will be good, but I won't be surprised if it kicks back for clarification on why I was wrong on dates.

      David1984, I met with the BI a little over 3 weeks ago. He initially told me, he had 2 weeks to submit his report.

  • Anyone from 19-2 for JFK received email or phone call for the polygraph exam. Any feedback is greatly appreciated like always and congrats to those who have been given EOD for this long process. Good luck to all.

      Have you thought about reapply under a different announcement for an area in need of officers like a DH? Or are you set on whatever location you originally chose in the first announcement.

  • How long does the process take in Orlando, FL to get scheduled for the polygraph? I am aware that it's going to be a while since I just started the process not too long ago but I was wondering how long will it take for a VRA applicant in Orlando. Thanks! I want to mentally prepare myself for the wait lol

        I’m in Orlando and applied on announcement 19-9 in mid June. Had my first polygraph first week of October, didn’t go well. I just got called yesterday to set up a second polygraph. That will take place this Monday. So two polygraphs in the month of October.

        I applied to a regular announcement GS9. So I’d say your wait for a poly is between now and who knows lol. Best case scenario you get lucky like me and takes less than 3 months. Worst case a year...

        hopefully I pass this polygraph...

          wow your polygraph got scheduled pretty fast then. I see people on this forum waiting 9 months to a year before they hear from the polygraph examiner. Hopefully mine comes as quick as yours.

          Good luck on your second attempt !! Keep us updated.

      • Good evening (or morning etc) again very new to the forum. I was just curious about CBP's hiring process. So I just finished my medical today, and I know HR will call back about my medical condition. However, once I logged onto CBP Jobs I already saw that they already set up an SI for me. I'm happy that everything is moving along, but surprised that they'll schedule something without hearing back from the other stages. Isn't that just a waste of resources...

          Nope it's pretty normal. If medical doesn't clear they will give you the chance to appeal it usually. So no need to halt the process. Good luck at your SI

          Okay cool! And thank you! And congrats to you! Hopefully I can appeal. Correct me if I am wrong but I read somewhere that they "may" offer less arduous positions (things not in SRT related activities). For the SI this will my first real panel interview (I already know to pay respect and stuff, yes sir/ma'am etc) but is their any other advice that will help?

      • Does anyone happen to have the packing list for CBP on hand? I know we receive it 2-3 weeks out before EOD. I’m just more of a planner so waiting till then has me stressing a little haha. Also, we obviously aren’t wearing uniforms to pre-academy, I’m assuming they have it in writing what they expect us to wear for those two weeks? Any assistance is appreciated!

          I’m the same way. I wish they sent out a packing list a month ago. I already purchased some good boot socks and new boots.

          Pre-academy I was told by the supervisor business attire.

          When do you report for the academy?

            whitjj72 You do not need anything but a pen, leave your phone in the car they just take it anyway. Key note, be confident in your responses and speak clearly. I have no military, police or specialized training, just an accounting degree and I passed. Also dress like you would for a job you really want dont do the jeans and dress shirt route. You will be fine, its nerve wracking for everyone but it goes quick. They told me that day when I passed and then they took my finger prints. Good luck, let us know when you pass.

            Just bring the forms of identification with you they requested. They fingerprinted me and then conducted the SI. The folks didn’t say I passed but gave me a strong indication that I did with how they were talking to me afterwards. I got the results the next day.

            Best of luck on your SI. My advice would be to answer the questions as honestly as possible and don’t tell them what you think they want to hear.

        • So finally after waiting 7 months since background was submitted...I got my stability cleared. I am already going to hit my 2 yr mark since I applied (17-11)
          but at least now I see the light a little brighter at end of tunnel! Now waiting on drug test and call.

            My medical just cleared literally 13 months later. I am at 50% now. Does anyone know when polygraph is scheduled once medical is cleared?

        • I accepted a position in Atlanta, GA. My EOD is 14 Jan.

            Thank you guys, the BI took around 4 months. The whole process was fast, took 10 months. I applied for the 19-3 VRA GS9 announcement.

            The VRA is what got that port which is an awesome perk for having the background you have. I wish my EoD was that early lol.
