  • I have heard the rumor that supposedly we're up and moving from Glynco to San Antonio for training.

    Rumors are rumors. There are usually dozens of them floating about and maybe 1 in 50 ever comes close to being true in the end.

    • Then again, if there is any truth to the rumors of a blended CBPO/BPA/IEA basic class, they might well be looking to move it elsewhere.

        San Antonio sucks. Went there for boot camp. That would be a step down from Glynco actually.

        • U guys talking about San Antonio Texas? Thats right down the alley from me. Not that far of a drive. better than driving 1100 miles for me. LOL But then again rumors are rumors and dont think i will be stuck in TSU for that long for changes like that to take place if they were to.
          TSU since 07/10/2009

            Why MHC does this I do not know?, I have NOR's for March, May, and June 09.. all contain the same info. I'm hoping it won't push my processing further back?

            oh, and I'm in SoCal- S.W. Border area for my geo pref.
            I tested the same time as you guys. I got a TO in April, and all the steps went by fast, except the background. CASS says my case is in the security office. I have not heard anything from them in a while. Im starting to wonder if I should try and contact them to find out. It seems like a lot of people on here were contacted by their background investigators before they finished all the other steps, not the case for me.

                  I'm sure you're doing the right thing for you and yours.

                              I have a question I hope someone can answer. Under the new requirements, there is a side step test. I sent an email to HR and they informed me that the outside lines are 6 feet away from the middle line....so you have a total of 12 feet that has to be side stepped.

                              To be honest, I am not the best in shape (crucify me if you will). Since I applied, I have lost some weight and have been running a couple times a week for over a year now.

                              Nevertheless, it seems impossible for me to complete the side step test!! It says you have to complete at least 8 (outside line) touches in 10 seconds. That is practically 12 feet per second....or roughly 8 miles an hour side ways. Am I reading this wrong or doing something wrong?

                              Thanks for any hope you can give me....my fitness exam expires on July 24th.

                                Do we get the call when positions become available at the port/location we applied for or do they call when thereare enough people to fill a class?
                                They won't be calling without a position to put you in and a dedicated seat in a class.
                                With 2000+ new hires each year getting together enough people to fill a class isn't really much of an issue usually, but it suppose that might be an issue for a handful of people left over at the end of a fiscal year.
