  • I'm not sure how having a clearance will matter with BP. I know military clearances are not recognized by anyone who is not military. I have a TS/SCI with US Gov and have been told that won't transfer either... My military time is 93-01 and i've lived 5-6 places since that time. The only thing I'm waiting on is BI.

      When they process the applications they have now and come up with how many dropped on the way, I guess they will open the announcement briefly to get the # they need.

      You're going to need to check everyday USAJOBS.com until you see the announcement open again
      Damn. Just my luck, thanks.

        One of the guys that tested with me asked a similar question after we got our acceptance letters, the agent said the military clearance does not effect anything at all.

        • Quick question about the e-qip site, I took my compressed test a week ago today, and I still am not able to get into the e-qip with the right 'golden' questions, how long did it take for everyones e-qip to open up. The agent said 5 business days which should have been today...

            With the G, give it some time. If you have a deadline to get things filled out, make a phone call or email. Otherwise I would just wait an additional day or two

              Well yeah they say the hiring center needs to receive all paperwork within 14 days of taking the test, which would be 7 days from today now. Included in that paperwork are 3 copies of the e-qip form. I'll try again tomorrow, if its not up by then I'll give them a call and see where we are with that.

                  Ah no I did not. I was not informed of that, I was under the impression the three questions would be the questions stated in my booklet, which they are not. I'll give that a shot when I get home, hopefully I can get through my form tonight and get my packet shipped tomorrow.

                  Thanks for the advice.

                    If your still having trouble you could call this number for help (612) 467-7014. Also, use your Dept. of homeland Security booklet that they gave you after passing the the written test. That has evrything you need to know.

                      Yeah check the booklet, in the E-QIP part it should tell you that the first time you go in there will be 3 questions
                      WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
                      and 2 More I forgot

                      and that the answer for said questions should be UNKNOWN all in caps, then it will let you go in and make your own golden questions.

                      Good Luck

                        I had some delay with the access also. By the time everything was filled out, it was Saturday and the time limit was the following Wednesday. I over nighted my envelope. It cost me a few bucks, but I knew when it got there and who signed for it.lol

                        Good luck!

                        • pcs, go to honorfirst.com and READ. If you have a date to take the written, you still have a chance.

                          On a seperate note: guess who has another green check in CASS today? THIS GUY! I received the quals letter in the mail almost two months ago, CASS just showed it!

                            I've had to use the e-qip site recently for an air-marshal gig I'm applying for and I couldn't get the golden questions correct. I called them up and they reset my questions and then I was able to get in.

                              but i have a family friend that said not to worry about it because they are hurting so bad they are just making u sign a waiver and your through shes been in border patrol for as long as iv been alive, lol, so 20 years and she said she had to sign the waiver but they dont disqualify from what shes told me. now if you have done PCP, Meth, Coke, or any designer drugs...you may want to look for employment outside of law enforcememt because 95% will never hire you with that background. hope that helps. im just waiting on my TO and my packet so i can get rollin through the process.
