      At times the investigator tells you at the spot ... if not, usually less than a week.

      Cassie18 after passing poly, HR will ask you to recertify your Eqip then investigator should make contact within 2 to 4 weeks after that for field portion of background.

  • Does any know what a pre-security interview is or heard of it?

      I asked the same question because i haven't been on several months and got the email yesterday. Seems nobody has an answer and jump down your throat when asking. I've been apart of this site for 3 years abd some people just never change. It is not a structured interview. It tells you in the email that it is not. It says if your scheduled for an si the pre security interview follows after and can take up to 4 hours. Never heard of it so i asked to because it is not on cass.

      Hal29 they probably changed now because covid calmed down maybe, a couple people i know got pre security interview phone calls in the last 2 months. They told me the person pretty much just went over application and Eqip ... its something new CBP just came up with...Its definitely not a SI nor background investigation meeting

      Thanks for the update and stay positive all will work out. Where you taking poly (what state). I am jealous but glad for you at the same time hoping I will be scheduled soon.

  • I got a question, regarding an app. Say if you don’t pass the poly for BP, can you still apply with customs ??

      I'm pretty sure its a CBP poly. So results (pass or fail) go for both BP and OFO.

  • Anyone know what the pre security interview is? Man I've already taken the structured interview and poly. I took my poly back in 2018 and passed. I'm now sitting on this application for well over a year. I hope they are not asking me to take poly again. I just never heard it called pre-security interview.

      Hal29 damn 6am for an interview? thats some weird time...but if they want you to be there at 0600, be there... just in case....yea I know you passed several steps in your process, maybe some are expiring when you reapplied? Everyone's process is unique so its hard to guess whats going on.... good luck man

      Yeah just seems odd because everything is checked off in green. Hasn't expired. So we will see. Waiting for response.

      So i just got a response. They want me to do the psi and go over questions on my bi. Then they want me to resibmit equip and determine if i need to meet with the bi investigator again or if my old one is sufficient. Nothing like scheduling this last minute.

        Applied in Nov 2018 and completed SI in April 2019 still waiting too for the polygraph exam. Hopefully soon.

    • VRA 19-11 Awaiting Polygraph

      After reading on here about similar wait times and the fact that more recent applicants were complete I emailed the CBPApplicantContactCenter thinking they lost my info or fell through the cracks. Instead of mentioning the polygraph I received an emailed response about the background investigation. Basically, stating due to time passes since last e-QIP be looking for another email requesting to re-certify e-QIP. Its not what I was looking for but hopefully its a good sign. .2

      • So I have the background investigation in CASS in progress, does that mean am getting close to get scheduled for polygraph or having my BI done before the polygraph, does it even matter, do you guys have the same BI in progress while waiting for polygraph. Any info on this is helpful. Thanks.

        Comment


        • IIRC my BI showed as "in progress" for the duration of my process. From the time I was notified to start EQIP until the day it turned green.

          Typically, the BI is multi phased.

          Submit SF86.
          Agency will run initial checks. (Credit, criminal data bases, local records etc...).
          Stand by for poly.
          Polygraph
          (determination of provisional status)
          After passing poly your case goes to investigation.
          Adjudication Phase.
          Complete.

            • I like how SFO is a "Mission Critical" location but I've been waiting over a year for my polygraph....

                I wouldn't put much real-world faith in any mumble-jumble like "mission critical" beyond the typical importance such phrasings have with the bean counters and the spin-masters within CBP and DHS.

                merlin436 just curious from your experience is it normal not to be scheduled for the exam already. Is it just randomly you get called. I see many applicants that applied after I did for same location and same general announcement and have been scheduled. I am aware that VRA and direct hire will be scheduled first. Any feedback is always appreciated.

                It takes as long as it takes...and in the mixed-up world of COVID...pretty much everything is normal, or abnormal...depending on your viewpoint.

                But...in the world prior to COVID, a year long wait wasn't unheard of...the agency has a long history of hurting to fill polygraph examiner positions.
