  • I just got the invite to attend the written assessment. A lot of people are saying it is easy, but unlike many other police department tests. Is there any kind of study guide or advice anyone can give me. Please dm if possible

        Only HSI here. DEA is way easier.

        Taken all except ATF. Of the ones I’ve done HSI is wayyyy harder due to the math. Just an FYI HSI is ICE. They’re the investigations side. ERO is the immigration enforcement side of the house.

        Appreciate it, you will go over what your options are in the call from HQ.

    • For those of you who already finished your background and poly and heard back from HQ or your recruiter -

      How long did it take you to hear back after you were informed your background was complete?

        I was never informed my BI was complete I had to call OPM and check the status.

    • Hey guys! Long time lurker here, first time poster.
      I'm also in the 2018 group, and I just passed final PT and now just waiting on "The Call."
      Good luck to everyone and hope to see some of you at Quantico soon.

        • Had my poly in April and it’s been radio silence since. I checked with the recruiter last week and my application is still ongoing so I haven’t been discontinued. Anyone have any ideas on what could be the hold up?

            I had my poly in June, and my background is done. I haven’t heard anything either, other than my application is still open.

            I’m in the same boat. If anyone finds out what’s causing the hold up then please share on the forum

            I got nothing BUT after I finished my poly in June, a month later I called HQ to see what the status of my background was and they said it was complete.

        • How soon do they allow you to leave the facility to go get haircuts, go home, etc?

            That first weekend, but I would advise against going home so early unless you live close by

        • Quick question for anyone who has taken fitness test - do your fingers have to point straightforward during the push-up portion or can you rotate them internally to angle them slightly towards your head? I get that they are supposed to be placed “outside the body” but the manual doesn’t address hand position. I ask because I typically angle my hands inwards some to activate the chest more, but I want to practice correctly.

            OPM.. if you google ”OPM background status” a number should pop up.

        • Has anyone heard if the August class is full yet?

              You get it at time of final offer. Timing seems to be different for everyone.

              Just to clarify they give you your initial field office when the job is offered? Not halfway through the academy?

              cbp1363 - Correct. They started doing first duty location at time of final offer with the March 2019 class.
