        I got the same e-mail and my geo is also LAX/LGB. It seems like by them sending an e-mail like that, it brings up more questions than answers. They said that they encourage the people in TSU to contact them by phone or e-mail. I'll be calling them tomorrow.

        • So I got home today to a packet from MHS, it's 4 pages long basically asking questions if anything has changed since my last medical exam, and nothing has changed (except losing weight)!! I'm to mail my answers back, or fax it, I will be faxing it back tomorrow ASAP!! Hopefully this is all I will have to do in regards to my medical expiring, we will see. Also, I didn't receive the email everybody is talking about, so we'll see. Will keep you guys posted....

            same here, calling first thing in the am. Seems they're in for a rude awakening if they had hoped for that email to lower the volume of calls going in.

              So it named IL for sure.
              Just to avoid any confusion it didn't specify IL but that's my geographic preference.

              • Hey heres a question for Merlin and any other CBPO's or people who know a CBPO. I know that ports and border positions can have crazy workloads and manditory OT. The position I am going for is at the Minneapolis Airport. We have a few Mexico flights and a couple from Narita and Amsterdam. Do airport positions have as hectic a workload? I have three years in with TSA. Does that mean I will start at GS-7 step 3? And if my starting pay is $43,000 what can I expect to make after OT? My wife wants to know so she can adjust her spending to keep us in debt.

                  Cmon guys, use your brains. Most everyone received the email because they are in TSU and people have been inquiring more often as to why its taking so long since hiring has slowed. They sent the email to tell you to relax its gonna take some time. They offered a chance to inquire if you are sitting around weeks and weeks from now, not to call them the next morning and be a dufus.

                  The email is not location specific. You did not get the email because you live here or there or wherever. Everyone for the most part in TSU got it. Relax. It doesn't mean anything. By calling and bothering them it just slows down their work. I understand those not on the forums wondering whats going on but people here have a better vantage point than others that aren't using these forums and you know whats going on. You are in the same place you were last time you called/emailed/sent a smoke signal.

                  Im sorry if I sound belligerent but the lack of logic around here astounds me sometimes.

                    There is more to CBP operations than what you see, Cargo is often overlooked by TSA who come over to CBP, because they don't see that aspect. Also there are private Aircraft ect. I have not worked in Minneapolis, but they will keep you busy enough.

                    You should come in at the GS7 scale at what you were on Pay Banding if that is a 7/3 then that is what it will be. You can "count" on NO overtime. Overtime can not be predicted, if it could be then they would cover it with people they are not paying double to work. It is a fact of life, and you will work it after you are finished with your in house training, but it can never be counted on.
                    Life is what happens while you are waiting for something better to come along.

                        Expect some movement after that date, but don't expect the type of movement we had a year ago...
                        Yoda, what kind/how much movement was there last year?

                          People were in TSU for about a day to a couple of weeks before getting "the call"... This was pretty much the way it was for about the 2 years I've been in the process till now with the current hold up... Of course there were the few ports that had limited spots available (at least from the people on this forum getting called) and others that were pushed through (from Test to Hire in 3 months). All of you guys in TSU need to quit asking "why don't I get the call already?" and be thanking God that your steps went through without any hang-ups and you are simply waiting for the final offer!... There are a few of us here that have been waiting on the BI to clear for much longer than anyone currently in TSU.

                          If you are employed at the moment and are in TSU, then just wait your turn, the job is right there waiting for you!...

                            • I tell you, you work graveyard and miss all the news! And I just checked this forum before I went to sleep at 10AM. I have read the posts about this email that went out to applicants. I checked my email, but did not receive the email that is the talk of the forum. I am currently waiting for SFO/OAK. Another SFO/OAK applicant that PM'ed me hasn't gotten this email either.

                              Any other SFO/OAK applicants get the email?

                              We'll see what happens.....back to work on my IEA packet so I can get that mailed out and play more waiting games.
