      Yes it cleared before

  • Anyone know how the process works or how hard it is to change duty locations once you're in ? I'm trying to eventually get assigned in Ireland or Spain.

      I asked the two officers at my structured interview about getting overseas assignments. It sounds like it is a mixture of availability of openings, seniority & GS grade, and then just requesting the assignment. It's probably expected that you gain experience at a POE in the U.S. before transferring to pre-clearance or an overseas office.

      I'm hoping to transfer to somewhere overseas, too.

      NoSlack898 and Anthropologist ..... I'm at FLETC now and everything the Supervisors keep saying about Pre-Clearance is that you have to a journeyman (GS11 and GS12) to do it. It's a position you to which you apply.

      Good luck!!

  • Just seeing everyone right now I’m in the BI

      I was meeting my investigator back in June. Still at 63%

  • So yesterday when I got home I checked my email, and saw an email from CBP polygraphing, and I’ve been scheduled for Jan 9th. Only catch is I have to take it in MA, and I live in Long Island, NY.

    For those of you like me living in downstate NY, I spoke with the polygrapher, and she said NY is so backed up, all polygraph cases are being pushed to examiners in other states. As per CBP hiring policies, you can be scheduled to take an exam at any location that is a 5hr commute from where you live. I accepted the testing site and date, because she said if I waited for an examiner in NY it can be 6 months or more of a wait.

    Ps I never received a phone call, I saw the email and then called the number listed. The examiner was so backed up with new cases she hadn’t had time to reach out to people yet (e.g. check your emails). Listed below is my current time line.

    CBPO 18-13 (Regular)
    9/04/2018 – Applied
    9/17/2018 – Entrance Exam
    9/20/2018 – Exam Notice of Results (Passed)
    9/26/2018 – Tentative selection letter (GS - 7)
    10/03/2018 – e-QIP requested
    10/08/2018 – e-QIP submitted
    10/16/2018 – Medical Exam
    10/16/2018 – PFT-1 (Passed)
    11/08/2018 – Structured Interview & Fingerprints
    11/09/2018 – Structured Interview Results (Passed)
    12/10/2018 – Assigned a new Case Manager
    2/28/2019 – e-QIP Rejected (for corrections)
    2/28/2019 – e-QIP corrected & resubmitted
    3/18/2019 – e-QIP released to OPR
    3/19/2019 – Assigned a new Case Manager
    3/25/2019 – Request for Additional Medical Information (Med Review)
    4/04/2019 – Emailed Additional Medical Information
    4/04/2019 – Email receipt for Additional Medical Information received
    8/20/2019 – Medical (Passed)
    1/09/2019 – Polygraph (Scheduled)

      Yes, thank you for sharing also from NY. I wouldn't mind taking it somewhere else. The waiting game is really annoying and they should have done this before, hire new examiners or stop posting listings until they are caught up.

        I went from Tampa to Seattle, WA lol ..... Unless you're VRA, the odds of getting anything in the Southeast is almost zero.

    • Took my Polygraph about three weeks ago and was told I failed but QC has the final say and could recommend a retest. My CASS was at 50% like everyone but today it's down to 38% and EQIP is no longer green. Is this just a system update or is someone working on my application behind the scenes?

        I took it out of state. It seems like a few others randomly dropped in % today so there must be an update happening or something.

        Same thing happened to me, however, received a email yesterday morning stating I failed to meet standards and was disqualified. I personally think if CBP is going to continue administering this polygraph they should make it a requirement to do it first before actually starting all the process.

    • Hi all! I applied back in March of this year and I'm still stuck at 38%... had to send medical follow-ups documents twice and still waiting to get the green light. It's now been 4 months since I sent them! Anybody has ever been approved after 2 medical follow-ups? It's been 9 months since I applied and I'm starting to get a little demotivated by how slow the process is...

        My medical took about 6months to clear and I had to send multiple documents in as they were requested. Poly came right after the medical cleared and now I'm in the field portion of the background investigation

        I started the process in 12/2017. Did my medical in 02/2018. Had to send documentation for 2 different medical issues in 10/2018. My medical finally cleared on 7/2/19. So it took almost 18 months for them to clear me. Hope it doesn’t take that long for u.

        This process is nothing but slow. Extremely slow for most people, if you really want this job, you will need to be patient. flo92 I'm 19 months in,had no issues whatsoever, and still waiting, looking at 2 years plus... So just submit required paperwork and wait... Use time to train for fletc... Good luck

        I had 3 rounds of additional medical and finally passed. Sometimes it just takes awhile to prove you are fit for duty.

    • Today a CBP Trainee at the Academy was Shot and killed at a bar in St. Simons Island Be careful when you guys are out there a lot of people don’t like us out there and don’t get in fights for dumb reasons just walk away it’s not worth your life or your career my thoughts are with his family and loved ones And fellow classmates

      • We were at that same poolhall a couple of days prior. St. Simons Island in general is super safe. But everyone will know you are from Fletc.

        • As was previously written, lots of the US doesn't like us...either justifiably or because we get lumped into the crowd within the greater immigration debacle.

          Be smart and aware is always good advice. Trouble can and will pop up anywhere at anytime in your career.

            Ive been in the process for one year, waiting on the poly still. CASS is at 50%, my background has said in progress throughout the year. Today I checked and it says pending, does that mean they are reviewing me possibly for a polygraph?

              same thing happened to mine just this morning. no change in %, blue BI bubble went gray.

          • My background went from in progress to pending in CASS. Percentage stayed at 63%. Anyone know if it means anything? The last time, I met with the investigator was about 3 weeks ago and should have been the final time.
