      I checked announcement almost every month, I don't think I've seen Austin...

  • 18-11 here. Good news for me (yesterday). I got called for my drug test! I hadn'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. Just hit my 18 month mark, and met with BI Inv. back in July and didn't hear a peep. Took my drug test today. Fingers crossed the next step doesn't take tooo long. Hang in there everyone!

      V_AntCBP Thank you!! I'm really praying for El Paso or Santa Teresa.

      Eann86 El Paso was offered to me for CBPO for a gs9 application so never hurts to ask if they don't mention it first off. They are gonna give you a list of locations that are in need of officers first over those that don't.

  • So today I received the call to schedule my drug test (scheduled for tomorrow), I'm assuming I received the per-clearance, because I was never assigned nor have I've never met with a background investigator. Listed below is my current timeline.

      Yea that's the provisional. Once you get the final call make sure to answer any and all phone calls after that because your BI will call you randomly at some point to get the ball rolling.

      You receive call yet since you taken your drug test ? SmokeScreen07

  • Has anyone here applied for a regular announcement and was eligible for VRA as well? I didn't know about VRA when I first applied, but I did apply for VRA this September and was selected. When it popped up in the application status portal it was there for about 3 days and then it disappeared I'm assuming because they saw both applications. I'm wondering if I can use that application to better my selection opportunities.

      Might be a issue five years later when you recertify equip and meet background investigator, assuming you get the job.

Not that others aren't giving good info just wishing CBP/fletc had a better handbook about what to expect and daily life as some of us are leaving family and kids/newborns behind for this unknown 4 months of training. I am sure once we all get there we will be just fine and that we were worrying about the little things.

    Everyone that has given info and congratulations, I appreciate it.

    Also, im glad to see other females out there applying and getting into CBP/FLETC!
    Has anyone gone onto the website for FLETC? It's very informative about the facility and amenities onsite. I think if you call down and ask questions they would be more than happy to give answers. I think I remember seeing what they serve you breakfast lunch and dinner.

      If you go on Flect website there is a handbook you can download and it is pretty thorough.

      The FLETC app is good once you're there for that food menu lol. Lets you plan which line you want to get in ahead of time. Pro tip for anyone that hasn't gone to FLETC. There looks like there are only two lines for food. There are 4 lines so for the love of god feel free to use them

    • Guys, today I received an email from the Personnel Security Division, OPR, that I was found SUITABLE for employment with CBP. Words cannot describe how I feel!!! Only GOD knows....I am an immigrant who came to America with NOTHING, but legally lol (didn't spoke one word in English), and worked my way up the hard way, working two jobs and going to school (earned a Bachelor's and a Master's) while raising a kid....but again, this is the reason why I came to the U.S and since day one I always felt blessed to have that opportunity and every day I say THANKS for being here. Hard work and determination is the key to success. God bless us all!

        I was notified 10 days after mine with a retest date. I thought I failed it, I felt so crazy during it.

    • Been in the process since Aug 2017 and still waiting on poly exam (had reapplied midway). This is also under VRA. Can’t understand the hiring process.....

        Redwings1993 did you reach out to anyone to see the status of your application.

    • Did anyone who was federal originally get the recruitment incentive to joining CBP? There's an incentive for certain locations for first time federal and I'm wondering if they meant first time CBP or any federal position.

        Northern border is for current and new officers, like pembina, portal, raymond.

    • So I EOD on Tuesday Feb 4th JFK Duty Station. Then head to FLETC on Feb 19th. I already spoke to my Supervisor/POC at my Duty Station.

      I just registered for FLETC and I started filling out my Onboarding Paperwork, W2, Insurance packages, Beneficiary packages, New Hire registration, Direct Deposit, Grooming Arrangement Etc.

      Still Provisional my stuff is in Adjudication though. Anyone Else from NYC going to EOD soon?

        You’ll get the onboarding paperwork typically a week out. Probably tomorrow. Maybe Monday.

    • invertedPanda oh gosh. I do not want to live of Fletc at a hotel especially when you fly down and do not bring a car.

        Hotel off center = no roommate. That’s probably the only positive to being off. May not be worth it if you aren’t bringing your vehicle.

        Fly down. Then have family/friend drive your car down and visit. Then pay for their plane ticket back!!!

    • PM015 They send u a link and a Temp code to get into Fletc.. Then you enter all the information.
