      I'm going there come March. I was told that I would be taking the 6 week course

  • Hey all, little background on my process thus far before my question:

    Everything is completed in cass right now. SI/Medical/Polygraph/Etc... other than my background investigation. Also, I took my polygraph one month ago with a pass immediately followed (one week later) by my drug test which was also a pass.

    Now, what's odd about this is I haven't even had a sit down with my background investigator which from what I read is usually BEFORE your drug test. The only communication I've had with my BI is a request for fingerprint cards to be completed which was sent in this week. Note I did opt for provisional clearance.

    My question is: In others experience that have gone through the process does this mean I was granted provisional clearance since I completed both my Poly and Drug test without a sit down with a BI? I'm about two years into the hiring process thus far and am hoping that provisional was granted based off the order of events.

      rmpee what happened to you happened to me as far a granted provisional. I got my final call about 3 weeks after my DT cleared. Took the position and was told to make sure to stay on top of my BI stuff when it comes time. Got called by the investigator a couple weeks later to set up a meet. That was 3 weeks ago, and since then have done a few clarification phone calls. My EoD is set for March 30th with an April 14th FLETC date.

      That being said I almost got early entry for this week EoD but someone snagged the slot before me since I was a little slow to email back (my dumb mistake won't happen again if they get anymore slots lol)

      Well I'm already 3 weeks out from my drug test, maybe my location has something to do with the longer wait? All I can do is wait some more!

    • Hello Folks-

      As some of you know already (I made a post yesterday but then deleted it) I was told that I failed my poly. This was my second application with CBP and second poly. Long story short, the examiner said that they liked me a lot and would recommend a re-test but that QC has the final say. The polygraph equipment literally broke in the middle of my exam as well so maybe that has something to do with it. I had to go sit outside while they fixed the gear. Never seen that one before (I've had 5 poly's all passed except the ones with CBP).

      Anyway, my question is (I should have asked this yesterday), has anyone here currently been told they failed based on scores but was given a retest at the examiners request? I was stuck on two questions.

      Regarding the 40 year old age limit for CBP, is that for applying or appointment? If you applied at 40 you wouldn't be appointed until probably 42.

        NYJRM10 hey bud jist here to offer a little help. To answer your questions yes i have been told i didnt fail, but didnt pass and was called back 3 times to retake the test. On the 3rd time i passed. As far as the age limit i know from personal experience because i was 39 when i took the test and passed. You must be no more than 40 years old when you get the conditional offer meaning you cannot be more than 40 when they send you the email that you passed the test. After that its ok. I am 41 now and just recieved the offer last week to EOD in April. So dont give up jist hang in there

        Thanks FORT. Congrats! Like you I am determined to get hired on with CBP. That would actually afford me two more tries if you can be 40 at time of TSL. Regarding my poly, I was flat out told that my scores dictated a fail and they would submit the file as a fail. If QC finds something they don't agree with (like equipment malfunctioning the whole time and breaking at one point) they will issue a retest. However, the Examiner alluded to the reality that a retest is extremely unlikely even though they "thought I was a very great candidate"

        NYJRM10, bro they tell that to everyone. I heard that the second time and the brought me back for a 3rd time. I know someone that did it 5 times before passing. Just keep hope alive until the email comes through. If you really did fail then just take the test again and try again.

    • NYJRM10 I’m at the 40 mark but I applied when I was 39 so I get to go through the process. I just will not be able to reapply because of my age.

      Just my opinion if you had a problem with equipment and it was noted the QC should let you retest that section and move forward.

        That's a relief. That means I get one more shot. Yes, without getting too specific, an actual physical piece of the equipment on me broke. Very strange. But who knows whether or not they even documented the equipment failure. Regardless though, they still failed me. I wasn't nervous one bit, not anxious, and no, I did not lie.

          I don't think OPR calls applicants for that. I was never called about my provisional clear status when I got it

          I did once. They called to see if I knew my ex wifes current phone number so they could get in touch. I could only give them her last known number from a few years ago.

        • Okay guys, I was sent to redo my fingerprints yesterday. I'm on provisional clearance and took my drug test two weeks ago.
          I got "THE CALL" yesterday, selected San Ysidro as my port.
          Does anyone know the shift schedules that they work?
          My EOD is on 1/28/2020 and Acadamy is on 2-12-2020 to 6-17-2020
          Anybody else have these dates? Any tips to prep for my EOD and Academy.

            Congratulations man, that's fantastic!

            Do you mind if I ask what announcement and if you were a DH/VRA/General Hire?

            I just sent my fingerprints in this week myself so I'm in hope that I'm in the same boat soon. You must feel like a weight was lifted from your shoulders.

            Not really because I'm still provisional clearance, so it will be lifted once I pass my background investigation.

            Still though at least some of the doubt is gone since you have an eod and a set academy date... It's a good thing

        • Most large to huge ports like Philadelphia and San Ysidro have many different shift combinations depending on circumstances. Airports tend to have more specific and non-standard shifts due to the predictability of flights.

          Standard shifts most places hover around the 0000-0800, 0800-1600, 1600-2400 model. Most shifts for new hires and recent trainees will be along the lines of 0800-1600.
