  • TsFost Well, I had met with my BI back in September 2019, and the field portion was completed. Hopefully that "next portion" means that is close to being adjudicated... Amen!

    • Just got another call from my background investigator. He said we must have gotten a tough manager because she's still hung up on past dates of employment. Everyone make sure that your dates are on point. I said leave used to be horrible with keeping track of dates for anything which meant that I had to guess on a lot of them. Even after getting all of them worked out during the actual sit down background investigation Hart the manager still isn't convinced on signing off just yet. Hopefully after tonight's clarification call things can finish up my investigators said this should be the final call that I receive from him. Let's hope

        Damn man, TsFost they are really tough on those details huh, when I did my eqip. I only had 7 days to gather everything... I was scared of screwing up dates too.... Hopefully this will be a last call from them for you too man,

        V_AntCBP I hope so. He said this want to fix my starting date and that he's never known CBP to not hire anyone over some mist work dates. Still it always makes you worried when they keep coming back to the same stuff over and over. As I've gotten older I've definitely gotten better about my records just wish I could go back until past me to get on top of it sooners I'm using talk to text so I apologize for any run-on sentences or miss spellings. I was hoping everything was about done since they called me a couple weeks ago to confirm my new pay grade. But I guess it's still awaiting final abjucation

        Haha yeah man, definitely try to organize them important documents, buy a big binder with slots, and with plastic sleeves, my mom did that for my old documents, all the new documents, travels, court papers, birth certificates, financial blah blah of my family, wife and kids, I manage those well too. that's how I could gather everything in under 7 days... It seems not important all the time but when you need it, shot, crazy looking for them... TsFost

        The part I hate is I EOD in less then 3 months and there's still stuff up in the air. Hopefully it chills soon because it gets to ya lol.

    • Looks like OPM got the boot, DOD is doing all federal backgrounds now. Supposed to be moving the process overall faster.

        standtheman that’s what I was thinking usually polygraph comes first before the field investigation it may have changed since DOD took over it would be nice get through the process quicker this way. Who knows until I complete the polygraph I’m sitting duck for now.

        fonzi7979 I was announcement 19-10. I'm not sure how their investigation process works with the CBP specific side of things, but all that remains is the background, polygraph and drug test. I already work for DHS, so that might make a difference (who knows?).

    • So I had my Poly yesterday, and I won’t get into it due to the NDA, but I got hit with one of those I didn’t fail, but the examiner said I will definitely have to be retested. Overall the examiner was nice throughout most the testing, now I just have to wait for Quality Control (QC) to determine if I have to redo the whole thing, or certain parts, or even if I passed. I will post the results once I get them.

        SmokeScreen07 lol yeah. Too relaxed is a problem. They can't get a good read.. Therefore they don't know when or if you are lying... You could be clean as heck, or you could be trained to beat the poly... They don't know... So best is to weed you out... Just in case, you know what I mean... I know a couple people got trouble because too calm too relaxed...you just have to be calmed or reactions when need to.... Haha

        fonzi7979 Yea I'm not worried, it is what it is. If I have to go back and redo it, that's fine. I want the job, so I'm willing to be put through the grinder, lol.

        V_AntCBP I understand, but my point to the examiner was, if I'm being honest and telling the truth why wouldn't I be relaxed. But like you said they don't know you, or know if you're a good person, trained to deceive, or someone who will betray them. Like I said, I'm just gonna wait and see what QC says and take it from there.

    • 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. '
