      You probably dont want to post exact dates in an open forum like that.

      You should wear business attire (business suit) as I met the Port Director on the first day for the swearing in ceremony. There are going to be other CPO's there and you want to present yourself well and I would advise you to email your POC because my POC didn't even know I was showing up on a Monday until I got in contact with him the previous Friday.

  • I got the call today!!!! I selected Chicago O’Hare so if anyone here also selected Chicago lets connect I EOD 24 December 20.

      Bentley32 Hang in there it will come. The VRA postings move pretty fast compared to the regular postings and I also hold a current TS/SCI so it helps with the background.

      @yelpmats33...with the VRA process did they let you pick whatever location you wanted? I’m also VRA but just received tentative offer.

  • So my port called me today and told me to report back from W&S leave tomorrow, and to prepare for FLETC. No date given today, but wondering if i'll hear one soon. Have they even gotten dates for all the classes that had to leave early?

  • Hey,
    so I’m 19-2, been sitting at 50% since March 2018,
    but recently re certified my EQIP, so now I’m at 38%, and I guess I gotta do fingerprints again.
    im doing that monday.

    also got an email that I have a new case manager now.

    think these are signs that my poly could be coming soon ? In the NYC area

      Congratulations and welcome to the club. Good luck and keep us posted.

  • standtheman wow that is an absolutely good news for current applicants but I really doubt will they reopen polygraph scheduling so fast in CA due to pandemic. The numbers are keep rising these days.

      captain2008 i doubt on that too lol... but who know since our president and governor wants to keep businesses open LOL. i hope when they do open back in SF, they will allow me to drive there since im living in LA... if you don`t might i am asking where do you live and applying to ?

  • For those that EOD'd. Did you complete your paperwork on OPM Manager, or did you wait to complete it when you EOD'd? I'm getting conflicting directions.

      You just complete the questionnaire. The questionnaire fills in the required documents. Once you EOD, you’ll go through each document and submit it. Whoever handles your paperwork should help you with the health and life insurance or whatever else you’re unsure of from the questionnaire.

  • Thank you! I think with them having me swear-in via the web from home, then changing it to in-person..... I think they gave me two sets of contradictory instructions by mistake.

    • To all current applicants awaiting to be scheduled for the polygraph exam. I am wondering if anyone has been scheduled for their exam. Any feedback is always greatly appreciated and good luck to all with this long hiring process.

        I was just scheduled my SI for the beginning of July in Northern Virginia. It's not a poly exam but shows things are starting up again.

        So far from what I have know, most applicants who recently took poly are from Michigan, Texas, and Georgia.

    • standtheman lol, I am living in the same location as you man. I really hope they can start scheduling us as soon as possible even if they want me to go to SF for the exam.

    • Hey all, I’m new to this forum. I was hoping one of you could answer a couple questions. I started the CBP process about 2 years ago and have completed everything up until the background which has been in progress for some time now. Do any of you know how long the BI takes before we can potentially receive a final offer? Also if I were to apply to a different port would I have to go through the whole process all over again? Thanks in advance

        V_AntCBP I’m not to familiar with the difference between direct hire and regular announcement. It’s been a while since I applied but I believe I originally applied for direct hire for southern border but then talked with my recruiter after the structured interview and I reapplied for what I am assuming is a regular announcement for a position in the North East

        Buffalo_17 DH announcement, you WILL have to pick a SW border location (NM, TX, AZ, Southern CA). They won't offer you anything else. Regular announcement, you will be offered pretty much ALL locations available. VRA announcement, you will be offered ALL locations, even the one that is not opened, they will make a request to open it for you. If you have an Regular announcement already, you are good to go. No need to reapply again.

        V_AntCBP Gotcha, that makes sense. Thank you

    • Anyone know, how long after passing the poly, the process is ? Or I’m assuming it’s generally unknown.

        813Deputy2b eqip is just the info you give them, they have to verify if those info are true, background is expensive that's why they have to wait until after poly to start background, because supposedly 70% applicants fail poly, there is still option to eod before background is completed, but you are right, Corona probably killed it, also, not many people get granted provisional clearance, anyway, just hang in there bro, you are almost done, there are still people have been waiting 1 plus year just for poly... Good luck man,

        @V_AnyCBP that’s fair enough, just a different way of doing it. I know when I applied to police departments they did backgrounds first, then poly, psych, medical, etc.

        813Deputy2b the background in CBP is also for security clearance, it's the most expensive step of the process, so it's saved for last.
