re: Global Entry timeline UPDATE: Conditional Approval
I was asked some questions, like where I worked and what exactly I did for a living. I have no idea if this was a part of the formal interview, ie, verifying the data I’d provided, or if it was just idle questioning. The photo taken then, printed on the useless plastic card, is possibly the worst pic I’ve ever seen. I look like a hobo just emerged from a nap under a bridge. Good thing no one ever needs to look at the card.

re: Global Entry timeline UPDATE: Conditional Approval
Thanks, was that on re-entry from a trip or did you go for an interview prior to your trip?

Have you noticed that regardless of what you post someone gives you a downvote?

They asked me about 10 questions and I got fingerprinted

Questions were super easy. I only was at the airport for 30 minutes total for the whole proces (most of it being early for waiting)

I assume they do it to pass the time.

I was at border control, somewhere, once and had to fill out a form for entry, it was some 40 questions long, and I remember stopping to ask a question.

The guard laughed, it doesn’t matter.

It was just theatre, something to keep me busy, while they ran my name through their computer.

She has a serial downvoter. It's pathetic but she has a good attitude about it.

Thanks, that’s the way it appeared to me as some downvotes are given on factual statements; e.g., “I had eggs for breakfast.”, would get a downvote.

Sorry about getting off topic.

re: Global Entry timeline UPDATE: Conditional Approval
Many people have a serial down voter, I have a few embrace them and love them, it means they are following all your post

Was following this thread for awhile. Applied 2/14 approved 5/08. No open interviews in NOLA until September.

The scheduling app on the website is terrible. I had to keep changing the date to get NOLA to show up, then once I did it showed a few available spots in June, but only 2.

re: Global Entry timeline UPDATE: Conditional Approval
I wouldn't worry about the schedule interview. If you have an off day just go to the airport and sign in. They will take you

re: Global Entry timeline UPDATE: Conditional Approval
Thanks. Is it open every day? I feel like I read only Tuesday-Thursday?

They stopped scheduling in anticipation of the airport move but should have opened back up once that flopped.
