          Hey guys,
          I have been reading this forum for the last couple weeks and due to all the great info, I decided I would join in. I have been working for the Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at Dulles International Airport (IAD) for a year now. After getting laid off as a Cadet with a local police department, I decided to try the Federal route. I applied to become a CBPO back in July 2008 after working closely with CBP while at TSA. TSA Has been a great stepping stone and a cool first hand experience to be able to work with CBP.

          As of today (3/19/09) CASS shows that my back ground investigation is now completed. The only thing still pending are Pre-employment forms. I was wondering if that is weird that everything including my background is done, but the pre-employment forms are still pending?

          Thanks in advance!
          Well, that is good news. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth! Pre-employment forms is the easy and obvious step. Just assume it to be complete.
          Good Luck.

            I feel your pain. I was in TSU for a couple days, but then had my med expire and had to redo it on March 4th. My medical finally updated back to complete today.

                Thanks! If you see me magically disappear from this forum, it probably means i got my call. Im not holding my breath though. Everytime I clear a hurdle, something else expires. First fitness, then medical, probably be drug test next. Knock on wood...

                  mlrtme,

                  Looks like we still keeping pace. My CASS updated today. Got 2 more checks. My BI is in the security office but Im behind you with the Medical, no check for me on that one yet.

                  Ya, it does look like things are in parallel regarding you and me. I just need the drug test to come back and then the BI. I'm sure you are just a few days away for the medical to clear. Let's keep our fingers crossed and keep each other updated on our progress!

                      Well yeah. There isnt a reason to go armed on a plane unless you are going TDY or moving. And even still you gotta check it locked up.

                        There several reasons to fly armed, however CBP cannot. TDY, yes. Moving no. Checked in, yes.

                            I sent an email to the hiring center asking them about it and got this response: "The reason it appears as pending is due to a form we requested from your current federal employer. Once we receive it, it will go back to cleared. You file is now in the Training and Scheduling Unit. They will contact you when a funded position is available. Thank you!"

                              Thats awesome man. Probably an SF-50 form or something. Regardless just hope that your at the front of the line for cleared applicants.
