  • Bummer on the shut down. I was hoping to get in by summer

    edit: got into contact and they stated the hiring process is not stopped, but the shutdown has slowed it down.

    • Anthony_525, Who did you contact that gave you that info? Did they give you any specifics? I just assumed that if they shutdown the website administer and other administrative-type duties they shut down all admin type stuff. Though, your message is certainly good to hear!

        Some processes are ongoing. I EOD in the next month or so, so I can vouch for this. According to my duty station, OPM is working 4 hour days to send out emails regarding EOD for applicants awaiting their EOD (last stage of the process). Also, for those that have an EOD within the next month or so, hit me up so we can network.

    • Does anyone have any idea the probability getting hired after turning in a request of waiver? It's been almost a year since I've reciever a NOR. I finished all requirements but medical. I'm just waiting on the waiver results and it's been 6 weeks.

      • Anyone have details on the fitness requirements for the academy, I’m sure they must have like a day 1 minimum requirement and I’d like to be ready, seeing as how I’ll probably have like 9months before I get to the poly portion of this with how messed up the gov has been the past month

          The PFT 2 is now participation, you dont have to pass anymore. But the numbers on the PFT2 are a good place to be. If you go to the academy able to do those numbers, the academy will get you the rest of the way.

          • Got my notice of referral today. Said I did not qualify for GL-7 due to not providing transcripts, however I did upload all transcripts along with my resume. Is this something I should call about and bring up immediatly? Or wait until the hiring manager contacts me?

              Did it say referred for gl-5? If so you can bring it up later. If not then hiring manager won't even contact you so you might want to reach out now.

              Do you qualify for the superior academic achievement (3.0 or higher) or do you have greater than 18 hrs towards a masters?

          • It did say referred to for gl-5

            yes I definitely qualify based on superior academic achievement.

              call the MHC, not OPM. MHC does the grade determinations

              I always associated opm with mhc. Thanks for clarifying BW

          • I’m going to call them as soon as possible. I received my tentative selection email this morning for gl-5.

              thank you. I was told that i would need to re-apply to get GL-7. I told them that I submitted my transcripts during the application, and it shows on my application as well. Anyways i did not accept the GL-5 and instead requested that Human resources contacts me. Hopefully this doesn't slow me down too much, but i would like to avoid having to re-apply.

              If they told you to reapply, then go ahead and reapply. Just make sure your transcripts are included, that your resume is in the federal format, and your resume has your college info as well as your GPA.

          • I passed the written. Now I am just waiting on them to review my application and qualifications I guess? I have done a similar step test for the job i have now but I only had to do it for 2 minutes. 5 minutes seems kind of long. I hope I can pass that

              No one here can answer that. The answer lies within the medical staff review. They will either find you suitable for duty or not. Plenty of people submit waivers and get cleared, and many dont. Just depends on the whole picture of your waiver items and the job.

              • I recently had coworker (Local LEO) take the BP Poly and was told he failed immediately after finishing. Has anyone had luck after appealing/retesting (however that process works for BP) passing a retest? Hes currently trying to figure his way through it, but I assumed someone in here could provide some good insight into it.

                  He could get a retest, it happens often. Unfortunately, CBP does not allow applicants to appeal a failed polygraph. The only thing he could do right now is wait for the results or retest.

              • I just took and passed the CBP polygraph. Does anyone know if that will qualify for BP as well or if I will have to do a second one?

                  It qualifies.

                How was the polygraph? I’ve heard they can be quite lengthy

                  My polygraph was 5.5 hours, I'm still waiting on the results now.

              • How was the medical vision exam? Do they inspect your eye and run tests or is it just can you see this red/green tests and how clesrly you can see letters?

                • Can anyone tell me what I can expect during the structured interview? I have it in Detroit next month. Any information is appreciated.
