  • Hm with the cases increasing I don't see them opening up polygraphs anytime soon in NJ/NY. At this rate in another 2 years I'll vest at my current job, I wonder what will happen first.

      corsair Yeah, I see that happening, plus the airports are slow and now they even send officers over to the border for 2 months from NJ/NY ports.

      That is what it seems like another surge in cases of Covid-19 nationally then we are stuck in the hiring process for months now, might not hear back anytime soon until we have a vaccine I guess it is what it is, got to be patient and positive, for now I will keep doing what am doing and probably invest in a different career.

      Stay positive it will happen. I live not too far from the airport myself and they are landing and taking off more often now so it’s just a matter of time.

  • I received a phone call today to schedule the polygraph in Illinois.

      Picasso, is the location in Chicago? That's where I had my first poly. If that's the case, there's a nice holiday inn right across the street from the customs house that has fairly inexpensive parking for the area. Not too many free parking spots around. Good luck!

      Also Chicago here. I live near the airports so that’s my port of choice. Still waiting for the poly but glad to know it’ll likely be in my area

      bmak18 did you ask for Chicago as your port or the vacancy announcement had that as one of the options. I just started my process but hope to be able to pick Chicago. Any advise is greatly appreciated.

  • Paperwork in to skip the poly has been submitted. Not sure how quick that'll speed it up but being in a backed up AOR for polys but hoping to get a final offer by the end of the year.

    • standtheman Los Angeles brother you knew it.. I really worry about the scheduling will be delaying until next year because of rising cases in CA.

      • I finally got the call guys and gals! My EOD is 12/28 and my academy start date is Jan 13th! I went with Calexico because they were offering the 33% hiring incentive! So excited all the hiring things are done it’s been over 2 yrs! Everyone just hang in there and keep your eye on the prize.

          class 560 here also. maybe the high class number is a result of the classes cut in half?

          is it just me or was it satisfying to finally see your Cass at 100% after checking it days at a time to see if something changed lol

          see you guys in November hopefully *fingers crossed*

            Maybe because they are so behind and can’t keep
            up. It’s about time they do this.. I’m one of the few still waiting for a polygraph after applying 18 months ago..

            That use to be how it was a few years ago. They had a limited amount they'd accept and if you made it cool, and if you didn't then you wait till the next announcement.

        • Hello everyone,

          I EOD in Newark later this month. Does anyone know any good areas to live around there with decent rent prices or any other good areas that have a reasonable commute?

            Anywhere north or west is solid. Good towns south too. Stay away from orange, east orange, Elizabeth, irvington and Newark and you'll be fine.

            I would look at towns that are close to I-78, very easy commute to EWR.

            It's a soup sandwich that's for sure.

            How long will you be here? When do you come in? It just depends on what you're expecting to do while you're here because there isn't much other than the new G-Field-Bar and walk/run and sit around. CBP is the only agency not on a 6 day work schedule so most other agencies are staying pretty busy trying to push everyone out as fast as possible.

            The restrictions will vary and ease up eventually I would assume. The dumbest thing going on right now is that they aren't allowing anyone to use the gym to workout after work hours or on the weekend. You can workout outside in the rust box, track, and obstacle course stuff. I brought a pair of kettlebells and do my own thing.

            The locker rooms are nicer since CBP has their own locker room, CITP has their own. The chow hall isn't better because the place isn't as crowded and you're not fighting for place to sit or waiting 20 mins in line.

        • The light at the end of the tunnel is finally here. After not hearing from them soon after the polygraph I lost hope. I received the call 9 months later and selected Philadelphia.

            You should be fine. I took offer in march for gs7 then applied for 9 in may. Was approved before the job even closed on usajobs and they called me about 9 in june the day after i got my letter. They asked if i wanted to change location or eod date and i said no. She said everything was good to go. I told my wife and showed her, the phone call lasted 36 seconds.

            Hi guys, were you able to pick Chicago as your port even if it was not on the announcement/job posting? Hoping I can pick Chicago since I live in the area. Thanks.
