  • CBPO.BPJ Its just the unknown. Going into something and not having many details about what academy is like. When we get some info we are just told we will be fine. 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!

      What would you like to know about the academy?

  • xknuckles I reapplied and everything that I finished already (poly, drug, physical, written test etc..) transfered over to new application. It made the process much quicker. If you don't get accepted they will just say GS5 instead of gs9 and you keep most recent application. But if you have been sitting at another application and it wasn't moving then you will want to keep recent one as in my case it made things move quicker.

    Also, I got offered many other places and I said I only wanted one port or wasn't going to take the job. He said he had to list all the ports available then I could tell him what one I wanted. He never mention one I wanted and when I mentioned it he said I could have it even though it wasn't on list of available ports when I applied but it was on later job postings.

      Thanks! I reapplied because of you, the wording on the application made me unsure if I was going to lose my GS5 hire. Good luck!

  • Status update for my 18-6 application. 67 weeks after last meeting with the background investigator and CASS still at 63%. I find it hard to believe that its taking this long for a determination. :'(

      Sadly no but than again every day I wait it puts me one day closer so either way I look at it - its going to happen I just don't know when.

      323 Days 2 Hrs since I passed SI

  • Nousername1 same here! Met with Investigator in September 2019 and still at 63%..

  • Wow... I'm kind of speechless. I met with my BI in December and got the call for my drug test today. The portal also shows that my background is completed which is a shocking surprise. I expected to wait months just like all of you did.

      Your welcome NYBseBall89 may I ask how long after you completed your SI did you get scheduled for the polygraph exam. I am currently in 19-2 and still waiting to be scheduled. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

      Thank you for sharing that with me so I guess I am on schedule with the timeframe. Good luck to you with the rest of the process.

  • So does anyone know...is or can the BI happen before an applicant takes the Poly? Has anyone’s BI been complete prior to completing Poly?

  • 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!

      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.

      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.

  • 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.

    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!
