  • I understand the virus is rampant now more than ever, however, I still can't believe in 4 short weeks I will be one year into this process and still remain at 50% complete pending a poly, background and drug screening. Very disheartening to see others apply after me and complete the entirety of the process before me.

      I've been at 63% for 10 months now. It doesn't get any faster.

      I too am at 50%.....waiting patiently to get scheduled for the poly. I’m already at 14 months since I first applied and now with this pandemic, and recent email....I’m afraid the wait will be longer.

      It might be the port you’ve chosen. I applied 12/2019 and hit 50% in 2 months. From everything I’ve read the East and Southern coasts take much longer.

  • I just applied for the GS- 5 position and took my In person exam the other day. Nevertheless, today they just posted the same position but a direct hire. Is there anyway I can switch over? Also does the direct hire actually make that much of a difference for a GS-5 position? Thanks.

      If you have any issues in background or medical, you move no faster.

      Just apply for the position. You can apply for the multiple announcements and they'll use your exam results after a year to any announcement. They'll filter out which one you will be in during the final offer stage

  • Looks like they pushing applicants through drug test before clearing BI

    Just got a call to do my Drug Test and I didn't even start my BI yet I am pretty sure I don’t have provisional clearance either.

      Yes, I took my drug test yesterday and my Bi hasn't started. I am application cycle 20-1.

  • I think direct hire works great if you are VRA, Or have a squeaky clean background, and have lived in one place lol. Who knows ? Just be happy to be apart of the process and keep hope alive.

          If they let you take Drug test, you should be good to go....

      • Hey guys and gals, just wanted to let y’all know. My Poly was scheduled for late April, and now has been cancelled due to travel restrictions. Hope others are getting better news.

        • So update for those with EODs closing in.

          I'm at the end of my first week. We are following the standard pre-academy timeline as far as online learning. Although the port is on a mitigated schedule. So I'm working 4 hour days currently with the rest being admin leave. Luckily there are things I can do on non gov computers that I can do at home, and i'm using the rest of the time for daily workouts. Keep your heads up guys and gals because it'll all work out in the end. My supervisor is hoping to get some range time in next week. Said she may have a handful of us go out to an outdoor range so we can all practice the new firearm quals (they are getting ready to swap to the G19 here so still rocking the H&Ks)

            TsFost so you say you are only working 4hrs a day? Are you still getting paid for the full 8hrs or just getting paid a 4hr day?

            I wouldn't bet on the notion that a lengthier pre-academy might translate into shorter Academy time.

            Then again, who really knows? This whole thing is unprecedented. Many things that were fantasy 6 months ago are today's reality.

        • Email just went out, "A Message from CBP: COVID-19 Hiring Update"

          We want to reassure you that CBP is still hiring, despite delays with some hiring process steps due to COVID-19 restrictions that impact in-person activities.

          In this ever changing environment, we are committed to keeping you informed on COVID-19 impacts to the overall hiring process.

          We are taking immediate action to help our applicants move forward in the hiring process, including:
          Looking at virtual solutions to protect the workforce that would allow us to resume or continue scheduling and conducting hiring steps that are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
          Providing individual notices to applicants directly impacted by the pandemic. If there are process changes that affect you specifically, you will be contacted by someone from CBP to coordinate any rescheduling or extensions.
          Continuing to bring new personnel onboard to serve CBP’s mission.

            I received that email as well so hopefully after we all get through the pandemic we should start see scheduling for the polygraph exam. Be safe and stay positive to all.
