  • Cbp officer mess up on application

    I recently submitted a application for cbpo on usajobs, I tried to answer the questions as honestly as I could. So when the questionnaire ask if I ever smoke weed or stole before, I said yes.
    I smoked twice in college as an experiment and I stole a game from a friend in elementary school. Beside those two questions I been a straight whistle. I plan on reapplying next month when they post new positions but does anyone think it's right for me to change my answers?

      How did you "mess up" on the application? You answered truthfully, correct? So why would you change your answers the next time around??

        Sorry I forgot to mention but usajobs gave me a referral denied status because I answered one or more question unfavorably, when I reviewed the application the only red flags I could see were these two questions, so I was thinking of just saying no to these questions next time and explaining myself during the bi or interview

          If you were honest and they denied you and you assume its because you were truthful, maybe you are disqualified? Whatever you do, do not change your answers around if you reapply. Answer truthfully. Do not answer "no" to a question that is a "yes" to you.

        It's all dependent on when you engaged in these activities. If you smoked weed recently in the last 3 years and said yes to it then that will disqualify you. If you get asked an ever question regarding criminal activity, obviously be truthful.
