Applied for Global Entry services. Is the interview easy?

Jump to last reply

One of the perks of United Platinum status is that they'll pay for your Global Entry application. I was clearing up my desk today and realized the "credit card" that United gave me back in January is going to expire on 7/31/13.

So, I filled out all the details from my passport and driver's license and figured out all the countries I've visited in the last five years. Now I wait to be assigned an interview.

For those of you who have done this, is the interview pretty standard -- who are you, where and why do you travel, are you a criminal? -- or does it get deep into psychology and such?

I once brought in a piece of fruit from Japan, but turned it over to the immigration officer before they caught me...Hope I will not be blacklisted for that. ;-)
