    I took my test (non-VRA) on the 14th and haven't heard anything.

    • Just got an email telling me of my Oral Hiring Board and Polygraph in San Diego. I haven't heard much, or anything really, about the OHB. Is it similar to the Structured Interview for CBP? Which leads me to my 2nd question. Do the OHB and Polygraph transfer to CBP? Or, will I have to complete them for each agency?

      Guess I'll be spending my time learning about, and preparing for, the OHB...

          these will likely be very different hiring processes in terms of timelines, testing-to-hiring timeframes, etc. these VRAs i think are new to the patrol, i had never seen one until 2015 but then again i havent tracked the 1896 job postings since i got in.


          VRA seems like a good deal, come in as an 11, right?

            • Hey guys, long time lurker of this thread but posting for the first time here. I applied for 16-2 and took my exam on 1/6. I went to the page to check and see if I got my scores in but had maybe missed the email and the application page shows that the Exam was due 1/21 but that date submitted is still blank. Is this going to be blank until my scores are reported? My status under exam says "No results yet", and then the date submitted section is just blank, with date due showing 1/21. I just wanted to make sure the testing center didnt mess something up somewhere along the way and my exam not get submitted or something, I assumed it would show that date submitted would have been 1/6, but I could very well be wrong and just over thinking the issue. Could any of you guys that have recently taken the exam and are awaiting results let me know if yours is blank as well? Thanks and good luck to all of those about to test!

                Same thing happened with me, but got my score back in three weeks and the status page was corrected at that time.

                    That was a reinstatement opportunity in your link.

                    • Have question about BPA reapplication process: I did not pass my structured interview last fall but was told I could re-apply in 6 months. Is this 6 months from date of the interview , or from date I originally applied for the position ?

                        Mine is exactly the same except it states date due 2/21. I took my exam about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything.

                        • How does the OHB compare to the CBP Structured Interview? Essentially the same, or are there major differences. I've taken the CBP SI and did well. I have the BPA OHB in a week.
