I have a nice suit to wear, I will be clean cut and have a pen/notebook with some questions to ask them. I understand it is a situational type interview. Is it really even possible to prepare for this type of interview? I heard that watching shows like COPS and Border Wars help some.

          Im a DoD police officer on a little AF base right now, and served 4 years in the Army as an infantryman. I think I should have the necessary experience to do ok. Any strategies from someone who passed?

          I realize the questions are not to be disclosed, just need some help as I have not done any formal interviews besides one for FAMS which I didnt pass, so I am nervous about this one...
          You're going to do fine. I was in the Army for 4.5 years and I couldn't have been more prepared because of it. The first guy that went in was in there for an hour. I went in right after him and was in there for 10 minutes. Just make sure that you have safety in mind when you answer your questions and don't take your answers back. Be confident and assertive in what you say. I can't give you any of the scenarios I was asked because its against the rules. Just remember that BP agents are there to help save lives. By the way, you wouldn't happen to have been a member of 3rd Brigade Rakkasans 101st would you? I was in 1st Brigade Bastogne 101st.

          • hey all, I just posted yesterday about how it has been one month since I got the NOR email. Just now, I got another NOR email from them, identical to the first! Is it a sign of a coming TO? Or do they resend the NORs every month? I'm just trying to understand why they resent them...was I supposed to respond in some fashion?

              I got two NOR emails as well back in september but on the same day about 2 hours apart. If is says please do not respond at the bottom of the email then don't. They'll let you know if you need to respond to something. The emails that I had to respond to were titled as, "ATTENTION RESPONSE REQUIRED." So unless it asks for it, there is no need to.

                I'm in the same boat, received the original back in December a week or so after the test and just got the same email today. Just so you know your not the only one.

                • Will I be automatically disqualified from employment if I admit to using marijuana and cocaine when I was younger?

                    Yes. Cocaine use is an automatic disqualifier for most law enforcement agencies. Regardless, you should always tell the truth during a background investigation.

                        As long as it was under 5 eight balls total you should be fine.

                        • I did it like 5 times in high school. I just took about 3-4 lines each time I did it.
                          And I did it about 6 times after high school. I currently work for TSA and admitted to doing drugs and they still hired me after 2 drug tests of course.
                          I was wondering if this was the same with CBP. People learn and change as they grow and I don't think one's immature actions should deter them from achieving a great career.

                            I was just joking but I completely agree with you. It doesn't stop someone from becoming President, look at Obama and many others. I think it is also amazing that potential agents go through a polygraph yet the most powerful person in government, and the world for that matter, doesn't get one.

                              • I'd say marijuana has more of an immediate and short term effect compared to cocaine. I did that over 50 times as a kid (7-8 years ago). So now I should start looking for another career?
