  • Waiting

    Hi everybody,

    I heard from DHS scheduling last night that I have a waiver form in the mail (should rec'v tomorrow) that my Dr. has to sign regarding a previously broken wrist. Once that is finished then I will be hearing from scheduling. I applied for Buffalo--- but, I only want Champlain. Anybody else here looking for Champlain, NY? I know it's a waiting game but does anyone know about how long the wait for scheduling takes once everything is complete?

    • Honestly, once you are a cleared to go and referred to scheduling youre golden. It usually dont take very long, the key is they need enough apps ready to go that they can fill a class of 48 people. Once you get referred to scheduling, should be anytime. You sure moved along fast for an October applicant. When did you first hear from a BI? Youre lucky cuz from what i understand they are WAY behind due to the border patrol hiring push. They are hoggin all the investigators!

      • CBP 1811,

        Are you taking about background interviews?

        I meant like real job interviews or panel interviews by CBP? Just wondering because on the CASS checklist its just like boom boom boom your referred to scheduling with out every talking to CBP besides the limited contact during your VBT. I'm not complaining about the process just wondering.

          I believe he or she is referring to the BI. Other than that, the VBT is it. You dont have a job "interview" like you are thinking. Pass the VBT, its good for 3 years, in case you ever need to reapply, you wont have to do it again

          • I've recently taken the test in march and recieved my results. I got a 93 and looking forward to my VBT. I haven't recieved any word on it yet. I'm looking at North Border/WA positions. I was wondering if already having a clearance through the OPM for a security contractor position within DHS would expedite the process?

              I cleared medically the day they received the waiver form (2 days after I maled it to them). I took the test in November.

              Hope that piece of info helps.

                • Does anyone know if Fletc has a nice gym and can you listen to an mp3 player while you work out. I wanted to work out after school to help time fly by and keep my mind off missing my two young children =( Also do you have to wear your issued PT gear when you work out during off hours?
                  What if quotas did exist?!

                    http://www.fletc.gov/ << The FLETC website will address all your questions except the MP3 one. But sometimes I wish people would just answer my questions instead of posting hyperlinks. So yes they have a gym, and yes you have to wear the issued PT Gear. And I would take a stab that you can listen to your mp3 player during your own personal workouts.

                      Yeah the gym is nice, plenty of equipment. Kind of a drag you gotta change into the FLETC gear everytime you go workout, even on your off time. But you can use headphones on your free time.

                        • Barnaj,
                          I first started my BI the last week in Feb. It took almost 3 weeks due to the original investigator writing stuff down incorrectly. Once I spoke to 4 other investigators & got it all straightened out all was ok. Also, it didn't hurt that all of my personal references were either supervisors or Chiefs at the POE here. I was fast tracked through a bit because I have a BA in History with a concentration in Arabic, Middle Eastern cultures and Abrahamic religions.

                            • I know I was going to post my process but havent got around to it. As of 2/28/08 I was in EOD As of 1:20pm today I start in Houston 4/14/08 and leave to FLETC on 4/24/08. WOHOOO I am finally in.

                              14 months of hiring process, 5,000 dollars in addition medical out of pocket costs for the process, receiving the phone call from DHS stating you have the job PRICELESS.
