  • Hey boys. 19-4 and got a couple of questions. Debating on JFK or Newark when that final call comes. I live on Long Island but debating on moving to Jersey, as girlfriend currently lives/works in Staten Island. Not sure what the right choice is here.

    1. Is anyone here, or does anyone know of, a CBP officer that works at Newark that i may be able to get in contact with to get some insight about what life is like working there?

    2. I feel like a while back I read that someone called a port they were considering choosing and talking to someone about life there and asking any questions they had. Has anyone ever done this, do u think its worth a shot to get some insight?

    thanks in advance

      You have nothing to lose to reach out to the port and ask some questions.

      Larger ports tend to have a more formalized hiring presence. Reaching out to them might get you some answers.

  • Hey Everyone!

    I wanted to know if anyone on here has ever received an email from [email protected]?The email gave me my own user name and password. Its a legit email because I checked and verified everything but the thing is I have not received "The Call". I will be waiting until Monday and will call down to Fletc and CBP and try to get an update on my application. I also received an email inviting me to download the fletc Mobile App. I was just curious because I am 19-4 completed everything except for the drug test. I am also waiting on my background to be completed. I am currently at 63%. Thanks in advance.

  • bigal. Back in July, as soon as I got the passed on my polygraph I received an email from my recruiter congratulating me and had also sent me an attachment with FLETC Student Manual. I was so happy eventhough my background wasn't even at the beginning stage lol. Currently at 63%, met with BI in September and have not heard anything other than background is "in progress"

      sounds like a way recruiters try to lift the spirits of people during the wait.

      Anthropologist yea it's funny I see so many people not reach out to the recruiters listed on CBPs website. Mine was a really good contact when I needed to ask about the process or if I felt there was a snag anywhere.

  • Hey guys. Finally took the drug test on 01/09/2020. Any idea how long it takes for it to clear? The nurse at the test facility says I should see results in 24-48 hours, but that seems kind of fast (especially with how long the hiring process takes).

    just anxious since it is literally the very last thing i need to pass before I get the final offer. Almost 2 years since I applied and I’m just ready to start, lol.

      I don't know if this true. But a buddy of mine poly was taking forever and he contacted his congressman, and after doing that he was given a poly date soon after. I haven't tried it. But I'm also only 5 months into it

      Sent two separate emails regarding an update and both basically said the same thing. You're in line to be scheduled blah blah and, "The timeframe in which you are experiencing is within the range of normal. '

          NoSlack898 That will be coordinated with your port sup. My port seemed very receptive to giving me the time I needed to get my family situated. May not be like that everywhere though.

          showtime15 So I have heard from a couple of people on this thread as well as my recruiter that the only thing I should purchase right now is boots. My Academy isn’t until May.

          Does anyone have any recommendations on where I should purchase my boots, and what type of boots are best? (I live in Southern California). Also when should I buy these, and do they need to be broken in?

          Thanks

          sit and reach test at academy. is it actually done? some have said no but there it is again on the selection letter.

          any kind of packing list for academy?

          SheepDogg I recommend boots (make sure that they are polishable), black crew neck t shirts, compression shorts - multiple pairs, shoe polish and accessories. The lone Wal mart will be out of black crew shirts with certainty and you will need those day 2, along with polished boots.

          spilker13 no sit and reach test. It’s gone.

      • Hey Everyone! There’s some openings at a local detention center for the officer position. Currently I’m 19-10 and I’m at 50% waiting for the poly. If I apply for this position could it interfere with my process for CBP? Would you guys recommend it?

          It all depends on what you want to do in the end. I turned down a position within the agency I am in because I was waiting to finish the process with CBP, which I did in November. I wanted to be within an agency that allowed me to have more opportunities for advancement along with different areas I could potentially work in. So in the long run you need to weigh out the pros and cons of going with the detention center or with CBP. All I can tell you is, the process picked up very quickly after I passed the polygraph and drug test, and within three weeks I had a final offer letter. Best of luck in your decision.

          If you don't have a job right now, go with whatever comes first, if you have an ok job, i personally would wait for CBP... McCoolCloud with the pay, benefits, CBP is much better than local detention, you can also get the local detention job while you wait for CBP...you are 19-10 so its probably another year or so before you EOD...

      • Hi all. Just an open question to anyone who already has an EOD and Academy date, or for someone already at the Academy. I have read posts that say people have received an offer letter. I have already received “the call” and was given my EOD and Academy date, but I haven’t received any offer letter??!

        When will I get any instructions; on where to go, what to wear for my EOD? Or an items list of what to take to the Academy??

        Any help is much appreciated and thank you in advance!!!

          I was told by the person who called me with the final offer that I would be emailed my list of stuff, and final job offer letter 2 weeks prior to EOD.

      • Hey everyone,

        I am wondering how long it typically takes for everyones background investigations to be completed. I applied for announcement 19-7 and everything is completed (PFT, polygraph, etc.) except my background investigation. I met with a background investigator in early October and he talked to all of my references, past employers, and a couple neighbors that week. Has anyone else had their background investigation take this long? I e-mailed CBP about it and they just said that background investigations may take "some time." I have just graduated from school and am just waiting for an EOD at this point. Thank you for the help.
