      40 weeks and haven't been scheduled - i'll start caring come April. No point in stressing myself out.

  • I applied for the 19-10 announcement as a GS-09 regular hire for the Philadelphia POE.

    Application Progress: 50%

    SI: Passed
    Medical: Passed
    PFT: Passed
    eQIP: Completed mid August; came back multiple times - Released to OPR on 7 SEPT 2019
    BI: In Progress
    Polygraph: Pending
    DT: Pending


    There are a lot of things involved with my application that could either speed it up or slow it down in the extreme...

    Pros:
    Prior federal LE training (FLETA)
    Graduate degree in a related field
    DHS employee
    Security clearance
    Clean background with no criminal history

    Cons:
    Dual citizenship (closely allied European country)
    Extensive international travel
    Prior residency abroad
    Overseas education, professional contacts and friends
    Never taken a polygraph

      • Got a call today from CBP HR. They approved me for GS9. They kept my EoD the same but I got better pay so I'm super happy.

          How far were you in the hiring process that they switched you to 9?

          I applied for both but originally was told that to get the location I wanted I had to go in as a 7. So it was definitely a surprise that they decided to upgrade me to 9. As for when I applied for 9 I did them both one after the other within two weeks of each other. Both were for direct hire.

      • Recieved my call today EOD date Jan 6 Fletc Jan 9, question do i arrive on the 6or a day before the 9? Also any in tell on Sananderson Tx and Presidio Texas. Thank u

          aztecquean I'm guessing you chose CBPO. He is BPA looking at the 3 day onboarding before his FLETC date. They have alot of open slots vs CBPO so way earlier dates

      • Haha thanks aztecqueen, just dont understand if i should arrived on Jan 5 or Jan 8

          I'm guessing you chose BPA since you only have 3 days onboarding. You need to be there at your duty station the day of. So the 5th is when you wanna be in that town. The 9th is when they send you to FLETC from your duty station. Good luck in Artesia. When I was offered BPA they had me set for Dec EOD but I ended up taking the CBPO slot so now I get to wait till March lol

          Your duty station will send you to the academy. That way you all ride a bus in together from the airport and get to bond over some being yelled at. For BPA you have 3 days of onboarding. For CBPO you have 2 weeks of it. Good luck with everything and stay on top of your emails

      • Got an email saying BI was done, had to sign a letter and send it back... Still not updated on the Cass though. That was the last thing I had to do other than drug test. How long did it take for yall to get drug test afyer BI was updated??

          I never received a letter or notification that BI was done. That said, I checked the app on a Thursday afternoon and it was "in progress" then I check again the following Monday around lunch and it was green. So it either cleared that Friday, or Monday morning. About an hour after I seen it turned green I recieved a call for DT.

      • Took about 8 months total after the poly... However I didn't hear from the investigator till like three months after poly so like five I guess. Letter I had to sign was weird, just said we found some stuff in your background however mitigating circumstance came to light... Don't do it again haha. Only thing I could think of was I filed bankruptcy in 2007 and it's discharged and done and all.... So guess that's why. Also they checked my credit like 3-4 times during investigation. Got letters from all the reports.

          spd2008 Did you get a nopa and cleared it? Or they just found some minor things and cleared you? I asked because I got a foreclosed in 2014, took care in court, I'm free and clear but just wondering.... Congrats man, way to go.... What's your announcement? I'm 4 months after poly.. 3 months after background submitted.... So I should check back in 3 4 months???? Lol. I check Cass every day and it drives me insane....

      • I'm back on this site, if you see my post history you'll see I disappeared to TSA for a year. I didn't withdraw my application and I was finally able to do poly, just took about 10 months after taking my new job at TSA. Passed my poly in August 2019 and met my BI in September... Everything was submitted in Nov and last touched 11/27/2019. Also reapplied to 19-10 as a GS9 as I meet the experience requirements now.

          That's what I did. Left my SO for TSA so that while I apply for CBP I can go ahead and start my fed clock plus TSP. Good luck with everything.

          yup, I'm on that tsp and now I have 1 year in the fed system, only 24 more years left to go... by the time I get into cbp it'll be 23 more years lol

      • I didn't get a NOPA or whatever ..... I just got a letter saying we found stuff but there is mitigating things behind it so we are going to clear you but don't let it happen again more or less. I signed the forms and sent it back. They talked to naighbors, asked me about a seat belt ticket I had in 1997.... They dug deep so if it's there they will see it and ask about it. Just be up front and hope your investigator writes it up in your favor to OPR.

        • If you re-apply for a better location, does your wait time for
          the poly reset or get held back? I’m 19-3 and all my coworkers at TSA have gotten the poly already. Also, how are my 19-3’s doing?

            I'm 19-4 and reapplied for 19-8 because of the locations available. From my understanding it shouldn't reset but who knows at this point. I'm located in NJ and I dont expect to hear anything for at least a year after passing the SI.

        • In CASS, does the Final Offer ever go from pending to in progress? I've been in TSU for a few weeks and was curious.

            Tha was my case before. From pending to "in progress" to Completed, saying, you have been made and accepted a final offer...

        • Well I am happy to say I received "the call" and was offered a bunch of places but I went with Detroit, Michigan. Buffalo was not available, nor was Georgia. I go to FLETC on April 30th and finish in 1st week of Sept. Anyone else going to be there at that time? And does anyone know how long after finishing FLETC do we start at our official station? I currently live in Tampa and need to know when to sell my house and get my family settled out there...

            Charbouli you get one travel day after graduation and then you report the following work day. If you need any more time you have to put in a request at your home port.

            Been at 63% almost 7 months now. Still waiting

        • I decided to reach out to my recruiter to inquire about the status of my background (met BI in September) and he replied this ... "your background is being actively worked and is still pending adjudication. It was last touched today" Then I decided to check Cass and it went from 63% to 50% and now polygraph says "pending" not green. I passed the polygraph back in the summer Dont know what that means.....

            I'm hoping it's an error. I went from 63% down to 50%. My Equip message stated HRM rep is reviewing my Equip and I should hear back soon for the next steps.
