  • Got the call today! Of course with my damn luck I was at work, thanks God they’ve left a message to call TSU back ASAP. I leave my cell phone alone for 30 minutes… and it happens! Damn, looks like it is going to be a sleepless night!

      You think you failed the VBT? You don't know?

      If you did, eventually everyone will get on the same page and your BI will stop.
      Sometimes different offices are slow to communicate with one another, and things like BI's continue on well after people drop out/are removed from the process. It's fairly common overall.

        • Thanks! Well, it's a tough choice but from what I hear some folks are waiting up to 2 years for NJ... I will take it, do my 2 years probation in VA, and then find someone for body-for-body swap back to NJ or NYC. In this economy beggars can’t be choosers; I want the damn job!

          • Color Blind

            I know that most police departments as well as Customs require that one has normal color vision. I have heard of cases, at least in Michigan, that despite being color blind, if one is able to pass a D-15 Farnsworth test instead of the normal color dot number test (I can't remember the name) that that is acceptable for employment. Does anyone know if Customs would make such an exception?

                You will get a packet to take to the Dr. Included is the list of numbers you will have to identify on the test.

                          Man, you need to start playing the lottery! 4 months for the entire process?!? And you beat me to it, and I have been in TSU longer...you are one lucky guy.

                          • It seems like the hiring Center is picking out names from the top of the pile rather than digging deep towards the bottom of the pile. This is in regards to all us newer applicants having been hired so quick.

                            • I'll play Pick-6 lottery tomorrow; if I'm as lucky as you say I am I'll let you have my spot with CBP; I won't need it by then <grin>!

                              • Do you get any clue when you're background has been sent off to the higher ups? My BI hoped to send it in at the end of last week so sometime soon someone more important than him should be making a decision right?

                                I've cleared backgrounds for Ca. Dept. of Corr. a while back, and nothing has changed since except a year a half of the same ol same ol.

                                And I was under the impression my BI doesn't exactly make the final decision, just submits his paperwork.

                                Only thing I can keep doing is checking CASS right?
