      So I'm currently on my 3rd day of pre academy. Basically what TsFost said was a fact.. first day, sworn in, theyll issue u ur gov ID card similar to a CAC, paperworks. Following days, u will do some online training/module, a tour at the port. Then today, we went to the range to familiarize the weapon, and shoot. But, it depends how ur port do their orientation with the newly recruits.

      I did and they emailed me saying they haven't received my case yet, 6 months after passing SI, so waiting a couple months before emailing them again.

  • Has this processed worked/kicked in for anyone - seems to be a fast track process of less than 4 months!

      fonzi7979 The pathway program is for current or recent graduates. From high school to a certificate program. If you graduated within the past 2 years you can join DHS. It’s only for a year so people can gain the experience in working. However, they can offer you a permanent job once the year is over. You get the same benefits as a regular officer, training, and pay. I applied for CBP import specialist. I was told this is an easy way to get a federal job because it’s only for recent graduates and not for the public

  • Well guys, I have accepted a job with ICE for Deportation Officer, I EOD March 30th and Academy is June 9th. I will be calling CBP HR to turn down their offer....I can only say that I am thankful for everything and to have faith in God! He never abandoned me! Good luck y'all!

      That's awesome congrats

  • I heard some ppl apply to both border patrol and cbp, since border patrol seems to process you faster, after border patrol gives you an polygraph, you just wait for it to carry over to cbp... It seems like your scamming the system but at this point I'm thinking of giving it a shot

      I had applied to both because I was truly unsure which path I wanted to take. I was heavily leaning to BP due to being more patrol like. Talked to a lot of officers, and agents and even got good feedback from my BI on a few occasions. When both offers came I looked at all the locations offered (between the two it was about 30) and what off duty life would be like, cost of living, and future pay. In the end I chose the CBPO route. Total time from app to call was under 4 months, but that involved a lot of driving and running around to make all the tests for both.

      Same for me as TsFost. I applied for both at the same time, still took 23 months to get the call. BP locations offered were extremely remote middle of no where. CBP locations were much better for the family and me.

  • TsFost Thank you :-) Good luck to you!

        Nice to see some fellow ND'ers here. I grew up in Mandan and lived in Fargo for a while after I got out of the Navy. That's a long drive for a poly!

    • Just checking back in from this morning.
      my location Is Newark New Jersey.
      yes mine took 8hrs 8:30- 1600 however I have much respect for my examiner. He very professional, extremely fair and exhibited a lot of patience.
      like I said it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon and am not a train athlete but am going to finish even if am the last person to qualify.

      A’m a turtle slow and steady wins the race.
      October/2018 was my last correspondence until January 2020 they email me for a date. However due work I missed checking the mail and getting back to them, so they gave someone else that opportunity. Nevertheless I persevere and Feb/25/2020 was my opportunity and I maximized it. Stay focus everyone and think wise.

    • Curious, how long do you need to work TSA to become qualified for GS-9?

        Your length of time isn't relevant. I know people that worked for TSA as an E band that are coming in as both GS-7 and GS-9. I think it just depends on how your resume looks and what announcement you apply for.

        Also may have to do if your airport deals with international flights, and how well you can articulate you meet the requirements for GS7 or GS9.

    • Has anyone taken the Poly and was told they passed by the examiner but quality control asked for more data before giving the official pass?

        Me. Took the poly and at the end of the exam the examiner gave me a verbal pass. The next day she emailed me saying that QC said I needed to take it again. Went in for the second time. Once again, she gave me a verbal pass. The day after she said that QC approved it and I passed!

        ChrisQuirolo there was no difference in the exam. Although the second exam was significantly shorter in time.
