  • I wonder if it would be quicker if I chose a place that has a full time polygrahper instead of a place where they have to tdy someone.

          Took them 5 days to call me back...had to push my eod and fletc back cause they were filled.... Smh.... If you are waiting for the call... Try not to miss it.... I always joked, glue the phone to your hand, lol, Turn ringtone to max. Always have it available even in bathroom from 8 to 5pm... If you miss the call, kind of hassle contacting them.. They never pick up, and take days to call back

          V_AntCBP I told my STSO that if I randomly leave the checkpoint it's because I was getting a call that I couldn't miss lol. Worked out since both BP and OFO randomly called around 9-10 am

          They never pick up calls, we have to leave voice mail for them to return call, and it takes forever for them to call back ... Lol I literally had my phone every where while waiting for the call, even in bathroom... Ringtone to max... Lol. TsFost my work didn't allow phone usage, told my boss I'm waiting on important call too.... Kept phone on me with max ringtone... Screw it... Sometime it rang while I was in meeting.. Lol. I picked up, didn't care.... Haha

          I am 19-4 as well hopefully I will get a call here shortly.

      • It's been 12 days since my packet was last touched and 37 days since I started adjudication. Only counting work days and not weekends or holidays so you guys can see how long it takes to get the green check mark for background. Hopefully they didn't find anything I'm unaware of.

        When I did my initial interview, the guy asked if I used a different name for anything told him no, and he pulled out some credit check that says I used a different name. It was my name but missing the last 3 letters because the company couldn't fit my full name on the bill, not something I knew about tho. So fingers crossed they aren't held up on something stupid like this.

          They had to do a follow up on a civil case that was same name and city but wasn't me. It was just in the 7 year mark and they wanted to know why it wasn't on me EQIP. I to explain them it wasnt me and how it wasn't.

      • For those that applied to a VRA announcement, could you give me a timeline on how fast the application process moved (or is moving) for you?

          The first 3/4 of the process went really quick. I am right at 12 months right now, which seems to be better than most. I am at 63% been in the process since Jan 19

          I am 20-3, applied on Dec 27th, took exam on Jan 4th, receive result 2 days later, one days after, received job offer. after that, receive structured interview appointment for Jan 13th, rescheduled, e-qip submit before Jan 20th, medical finished on Jan 27th, physical is really to schedule, but I will wait. I feel the processing going very quick so far.

      • Hello Everyone; 18-11 here. Finally got the call for the Final Offer after a year and 4 months. My EOD is July 6th and FLECT in Glynco, GA is July 13th thru December 5th. Anyone going to Columbus, NM? (El Paso Sector)

          TsFost no actually not confirmed port yet. But he said 90% new hires will be assigned seatac airport. Sea port usually is for experienced officers only... Lol. So I'm assuming I'm going to seatac, they said I will know for sure 2 3 weeks out... Smh

          KeepingFaith83 that was not directed towards you. I am aware we are in the same 19-2 V_AntCBP picked the Miami location, and he was denied that location, so I was referring to the hiring process not giving him that location. And congrats on getting your location!

            18-11 here. Good news for me (yesterday). BI cleared and I got called for my drug test! I didn't hear anything about my background, no email or call... just a call to take my drug test. Checked my CASS, and sure enough it had a green check mark. Drug test today. Great feeling. Just hit my 18 month mark, and met with BI Inv. back in July and didn't hear a peep. Fingers crossed the next step doesn't take tooo long.

            Congrats! My personal opinion about boots; (only because you asked) I really don't like 8 inch boots. I prefer 6 inched in height, Insoles have to be sneaker like, flexibility is key, also start looking at the weight of the boots. That is also important if you will be walking a lot or if your job will consist of running. I don't think you will be doing a lot of Foot pursuits in the airports. I could be wrong. My experience: 26 years 1 month in Law enforcement, Prior Military and a total of 22 years of SWAT teams. I currently use Salomons. I swear by them a little costly but worth every penny. Problem is they are not able to be polished. So I have been also asking my patrol guys what they use. Must of the guys in my department like UA. They say they are sneaker like inside and are light and comfortable. If I find something to look at I will post it. I still have time I am announcement 19-5 VRA. Good luck if you find something like me know.

            I just bought a set of 5.11 Evo boots. Day three of wearing them and I really like that they are light but really supportive. They are breaking in well, and they take to being shined. We shall see how they hold up since I EOD in March. I usually go with Bates, but decided to go with something different after trying on a few different brands the other day.

            As long as they are polishable, you can get those boots.

            All black and as long as you can shine the crap out of the front of your boots you'll be fine
