      All I know is that lots of border patrol guys are having their dates pushed back again it seems. A few who had academy dates said their office told them it's very very likely that their December academy date will be pushed back.

  • Hey everyone, I’m scheduled to have my pre security interview soon, as I already have done the SI a couple years ago and the results have carried over to this application process and am waiting for my poly to be scheduled, I was wondering if the pre security interview is your meeting with your background investigator or if it’s another formal panel type interview? It says give 3-4 hours for the interview, is this average for most applicants? Any info would be great thanks.

      The earlier you get the quicker you leave. I was the last one to get there so I had to wait for everyone to be done to do my interview. They did it in that order

      Interesting. Sounds to me like they foresee a need to hire fewer people...at least in the short-term.

  • At 75% BI cleared after 2 Nopas

    • Well sure is a process to become a member of this forum. Took a while for my registration to be approved. Anywho, hope everyone is keeping sane as they await what seems to be an overwhelming process of just waiting.

      anybody here from VRA 20-8? If so how’s your process going ? I’m waiting to clear medical. The place they sent me to for my medical and fitness test did a crappy job and didn’t explain anything on his behalf with what I had put on the packet. So of course they requested more information on my behalf. AND of course being a veteran more than likely any vet has ratings from the VA so then I had to submit all my medical documents from the VA pertaining to a medical issue. So now I wait to be cleared to continue along the process.

      Some would hope to be processed as fast as others however, reading through the forum no matter what listing you apply under every applicants timeframe is completely different even if you apply under VRA or direct hire.

      if all goes well, applying under VRA bring a Florida resident, I’ll be aiming for Orlando international. if I can’t get that, looking into Sanford airport, Daytona international or cape canaveral all within an Hour from my house. So fingers crossed.

        Now I don't feel so bad. Same boat for VRA 19-11.

    • Are you notified by email first, to call to be scheduled? Did your polygraph email go to your junk mail folder?

    • For the guys who have been at FLETC for longer then the two week quarantine, how has it been? anything you wish you knew before you got in? Are you having a good time?

        Run more then you think you should. Like a lot. Also yes it's very nice

    • What did you wear for your poly?
      Casual attire is recommended but I was wondering if a suit would over do it?
      Is dress pants, slip on dress shoes, and a polo shirt acceptable?

        In the email you get they’ll tell you business casual, no jeans or sneakers.
        I wore khaki dickies with dress shoes and a black polo.
        I kept it simple. Try not to wear anything with long sleeves as they’ll have to roll it up for the blood pressure cuff which WILL get annoying after a couple of hours.
        Also they told me to bring snacks as you are not allowed to leave the building once you’re in it. So I brought snack bars and plenty of water.

        Go comfortably. Short sleeves makes it easier. See it as a lax interview. You dont have to promote yourself or convince anybody of who you are.

      Yes, it's permanent opposites day over at CAD. Where "fantastic" in fact means the bleeping opposite of "fantastic". And everything else is fully backwards also. Oh well.

          Up to class 541

      • Good luck in recruitment and in filling just about any federal uniformed position(especially any position involving immigration enforcement) if NOPAs become an automatic disqualification.

        I'd say the very fact that so many NOPAs are so easily overcome by a simple explanation points to how trivial many NOPAs ultimately are.
