Everything else is out of your control, so there is no sense getting stressed out. Good luck.
      That's exactly my game plan. I have nothing to hide and no reason to be dishonest so I think it's going to go well. I've gotten this far in the process already, so no reason to stop!

        • So, I took the polygraph today!

          Overall it was a good experience, a little nerve racking though since I have never had to do anything like this before.

          I don't know if I passed or failed though...lol. He said he had to submit the report to his boss and they'd call me if I needed to come back for any other questions.

              • Really? When I checked on CBP's webpage, it said they'd let you know upon exit of the polygraph if I had passed or failed. That's why I'm a little confused.

                  And that's the first of many lies you will get from CBP if you are hired.

                  • Well, here's to hoping I get to that point! I'm OKAY with waiting, as long as the outcome is in my favor. I worked hard to get to this point, I want this job.

                      You shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket, I was in the same boat as you, I decided to try the local agencies and so far they have been more fluent than the feds. Just my recommendation, give it a try.

                      • I would love to try local agencies but none in my area are hiring. I have the NYS Park Police exam on the 17th.

                        • Has anyone received an inclusive on a CBP poly and have been able to reenter the hiring process? I'm in that boat, I just received my TSL today for BPA but I'm not sure if this inconclusive poly will come back to haunt me.....I just don't want to waste my time.

                          • Finally got my qualifications verified. GS-07. Now I just need to get my drug screening done and wait on the BI.

                            • So it's been awhile since I've posted on here. I was hired with the patrol over a year now. After over ten years of law enforcement I am not real impressed with the patrol. I was a local with a mid sized pd before the patrol. Don't get me wrong, the patrol is good, I just don't enjoy the job nearly as much as being a cop. Now with the current budget issues, specifically a reduction in pay, I'm not sure if its worth it for me to stay in the patrol if I can make almost as much money doing a job that I loved (police work) vs. the patrol that is just okay. Or stay in the federal system and hope to get on with another agency that is facing the same budget issues. Unfortunately, these are the times were are living in. Guess it's time to start writing down some pros and cons.

                              • You were half retired and decided to try something else? I don't really understand that but a lot of guys seem to do it for one reason or another. Just don't throw your job away until you got something else locked on. I don't know what the job market is like out west but on the east coast it's not great at all.
