        653 pages to read the "entire" thread... I suppose that is possible considering the time people spend waiting for the fancy green check marks.

        Not a negative post - more for the fun "smile of the day" comment - haha! Along Merlin's post, the "Search this Thread", as mentioned is a great resource for typing in key words such as "differential", etc.

        Also, not too surprising - simply typing in the Google search - something of the sort - ex. "CBP gov differential pay" will also bring up a quick access tooo - none other than;
        I'll bet by the time a person posts a question, sits about for hours awaiting a response and gets his answer, the average person could pretty much read through this thread. When you think on it, one of the main reasons that this thread is 650+ pages long is because "we" keep asking the same questions...and "we" keep giving the same answers over and over again every few months.

          I lol'd at this one. not at the fact that you guys failed but I could imagine someone acting 'harsh' during the vbt and the lady in the next room going 'wtf is this guy doing shouting in there' hehe

          on a side note - what position would I have to be in to be the person who reviews the vbt submissions, because that seems like some great fun. "Hey man, im having a lousy day, wanna go review some vbts?!"

          • Supervisory officers review the VBT's.

            They have very strict guidelines to follow. The ones I know take the job very seriously.

              COPRA is being reviewed by congress, at the request of CBP.

              I believe (opinion) that this might be a big move for the CBPO position.

              I am not to happy about it though, as COPRA is a very lucrative system for officers in most big ports.

              Merlin, you might be happy about it though

              Maybe I will go to the Northern Border....

                Meh...probably not.

                It's not really COPRA that's my problem, it's the way everything is all implemented. Replace COPRA with something else and keep the same old manipulations and "pie-grabbing" and most likely there's few changes for me or many on "the frontier".

                Any idea on what would replace COPRA? AOU would be my likely guess, but I'm not sure how they'd work that in with many ports.

                You're welcome to come north though...anytime. Give it a few more weeks and the sugar maples will be blazing orange and red...pretty little things that they are.

                  • Redofitness and medical?

                    Hi folks,

                    It seems like I will have to redo my fitness next month as it will expire. I was wondering if I have to do medical again? The reason I ask is that I have high blood pressure so I had to get a clearance from my doctor and lots of paperwork to have myself clear for medical. Do I have to do that all over again with medical? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

                      If its been one year, you just fill out a medical status update form. At 2 years you re-do the whole thing. Problem is, they will probably take your b.p. before letting you do the step test.

                        Most likely IOU will replace COPRA..lol.

                        I guess most likely they would use AUO like BP...Or nothing, just a regular Gov. employee? Anything is possible at this point. For the record, I mostly thought that all these rumors were BS, but it seems there was some truth to them. To what extent, we will have to wait and see...

                        I would really like to join you up there. There are a couple of things holding me back though...But maybe one day.

                          It's my day off.

                          Other than mowing the lawn and finishing things on my honey-do list, I've got few other things to do besides using the computer.

                              When I redid my fitness (7/31), they took my blood pressure and did an EKG on me, then I took my test. Just on Wednesday I got my forms for my medical expiring and turned it in on Thursday morning. So now I have a little green check next to my medical in CASS, "does that mean I'm back in TSU then"!!!! Haha I'm kidding, but I did get my green check mark, feels good to have it back!!
