  • Hi everyone, I’ve been following the forum for some time now but finally decided to vent (signup)with you all ) Anyhow I’m a 19-3 DH and still at 50% I applied Feb 2019, been waiting to get scheduled for the poly for almost 8 months now. My neighbor, someone I went to school with, has been working with cbp for some years now, bumped into him this week and he said that it’s normal to wait this long aaaaand, with everything that’s going on, scheduling for poly examinations are being delayed....which sucks cause I just want to know if I’m getting in or not, that way I can make other career decisions. This waiting game is brutal. I also called and was told that the wait time for the poly depends on the location you requested. I guess I requested the location with the longest waitlist...... fingers crossed for all of us who are still waiting for an email/call.

      Its true, the process can be brutal for many people, I waited 50 weeks for poly ... my whole process was 2 years plus...Just have to hang in there and hope for the best... Maggie718 where did you requested? JFK or EWR?

      V_AntCBP oh gosh 2 years is a long time. I hope I don’t have to wait that long. I requested to get the poly done in San Diego. I was trying to change the location to get it done sooner but I don’t think it’s possible.

      • So today I got a call from CBP HR about my EOD and FLETC dates. Ever since I heard FLETC shut down and classes were halted I was worried EODs would be pushed back. However my fears were for nothing it seems. My EOD is 100% still happening on the 30th. I was told that I would be doing pre-academy work until FLETC starts back up however long that will end up being. I hope that also helps out others who might be worried with upcoming EODs.

          If I had to bet, I'd bet that there are some serious logistical problems with a person doing pre-academy in another port...as a rule of thumb. That's not to say that it never happens...but only rarely, in specific circumstances and at the benefit of the agency.

          But...should this course of events take up months and people are locked into spinning their wheels awaiting a resolution, maybe something might be arranged to lessen the burden on new hires.

          merlin436 well logistics aside I was offered my local port for pre-academy if I wanted it, then go to my actual POE after FLETC.

          @TsFost

          Well...that puts an end to the real reason that there's a lengthy pre-academy to begin with...forcing new hires into familiarization with the port and locality while at pre-academy and limiting the chances and costs of a new hire graduating from FLETC just to quit his location after a few days/ weeks post-academy.

          We might as well jump to the BP way of doing things...bring in a new hire 2-3 days prior to shipping off to FLETC

          merlin436 honestly I could care less if you like how they are doing it or not. They gave me the option to save lots of money due to having an extended pre academy and I'm going to take it. I'm more then happy to move to TX which is why I chose it even though I had a general app as well with lots of other options besides the SWB. So after FLETC I'll be off to my own POE and that will be that.

      • First time posting on here... current CBP candidate. Just heard this morning that I passed the interview, also actively working with CBP HR to edit my EQIP and submit it. Postponed my medical because of LASIK but everything seems to be slowed down because of COVID ( I was one of the last interview before they put everything on hold... as what I was told)

          Congrats on passing the interview. I was the first to get interviewed from a group of 20....and man I was excited to know I passed, so I bet you are too. Congrats again and good luck with the rest of your process.

      • Sorry to hear FLETC is shutting down... does that mean the wait for people in the process are also getting delayed?

        I got an e-mail from my recruiter 2 weeks ago saying that "within the next few weeks" I should be getting a call to schedule a polygraph but nothing so far.

          Yes!! I hope this virus doesn’t interrupt our process and we get that call/email. My neighbor said he would find out what’s going on cause he has a buddy in the poly department, but said he can’t promise anything, but once I find out I’ll let you know.

      • CBPO 19-9/GS-7. Verbal pass from poly on 3/18.

        FYI to Newark folks, they have tiny lockers in the office for your phone/smartwatch. You don't have to leave them in your car like I did.

          There were 3 others testing, too. I think one of them applied after me, and one applied in 2017 (had some weird processing issues). It may be entirely at random, from a bingo machine.

          I think in the end FLETC won't be shut down for too long. Honestly I can see them doing a decontamination of the base including all dorms. Then bring people back who need to finish classes after doing corona tests on each. That way they can clear them out and then start on new classes. I do see them prioritizing agencies based on needs for a while to keep the numbers down. TSA use to train all their people in house. So I could see them doing that again to free up FLETC space for the time being when their hiring freeze is finally lifted at the end of April.

          They can and they will.

          Best yet, since they are letting people attend ports of convenience for pre-academy, expect to see lots of people who not only will spend most of their time twiddling their thumbs and working menial tasks during pre-academy, but the few "useful" things they do learn...many of those things will be 0% relevant when transferred to the actual working ports.

          This is what the port program manager sent me when I asked about my FLETC date and EOD (which is also July 2020)

          At this time, CBP is still onboarding new employees as scheduled. Your academy class dates will most likely change so be prepared to spend more time at the port of entry in our pre-academy training program before actually reporting to the academy for basic training.

          Please understand things are constantly changing so please continue to remain patient with us and remember to stay safe by practicing social distancing and washing your hands frequently.

          Please let me know if you have any further questions.

          Thank you,

      • DrigoCBP V_AntCBP ill let you both know if I find anything out about EODs if I get a call back from the training and scheduling unit. Hopefully they just postpone them as a worst case scenario. I don’t see how it would be possible for them to revoke job offers.

      • Good afternoon,
        Is it normal, to be in backgrounds but never been contacted by a BI? Also, no one in my EQUIP have been contacted either?

        Thank you in advanced

          From what I've seen on here and Delphi you aren't truly in the background stage most likely. Can't trust CASS lol. You'll know you're in the BI stage when you get a call from an investigator

          I have both, Marine Corps and Federal Buraeu of Prisons.... I applied for a 7. I thought I wouldn't rate it because it required experience exporting and importing goods, and processing person in and out of the United States.

        Already got the call. EOD in July.
        I took my medical in May 2018, but it cleared almost a year later in April 2019. Will I have to retake the entire medical exam again or just sign the medical reclearance papers they send considering I'm coming up on 2 years since I took the medical, and 1 year that it got cleared?

          At this time, we require an update to your medical status. In order to comply with the pre-employment requirements, you will receive a separate email from us within the next 24 hours that contains a medical self-certification form for you to complete. ​​​​​​​ You will need to enter your medical clearance date on this form:


          You should get a email like this I think. I’m 19-2

          MattyjayG jdop7 this is what i’ve been looking for.. so for me 18-3... my process is done and up to background investigation and the following part would be drug test, i will then, do a self certification on medical clearance and do i have to visit the medical facility and redo all the eye sight, ekg, push ups sit ups etc...?

          Leon0215 I really hope we don't have to visit the medical clinic again. I hope it's just a reclearance form that we have to sign and that's it. Medical took so long to clear the first time, it would be devastating to have to go through it again.

      • 19-1 originally. I posted earlier that I had poly for the 20th of March. Today I got my result. Passed. Don’t give up guys.
