We live 8 hours away from FLETC and I dont know how true it is, but people tell me its not a good idea to fly home on the weekends just in case your flight is delayed. My parents have a condo on the beach midway between home and FLETC that they said we can use on the weekends if we want which is VERY nice to have that option. My children are older and understand that I'm doing this to better myself and the family. Like I said before, my son thinks I'm going to learn how to become Jack Bower from 24. LOL!!!

      You are lucky I have 2 kids too and they are 2 and 4 it's going to be so hard to leave them and I live in NY so no weekend trips. But it's going to be worth it in the long run!

      • Congrats on the fruitbasket.....lol.

        Also would like to say this is my second BI with CBP first was for CBP Tech position, so this was a re-investigation they said. Funny how they gave me a NOPA on the ducuments they already had, so i just had to remind them of that.....LOL. Plus the secret clearance i already have as an MP and my public trust background with TSA so thats 4 SF86's in since 2006 and another when i first went in the military 2002. WOOHOO.

        So the Adjudicator told me that my file is in the Director of Personal Securties Office. So who knows how long it will be....

        But I will still wait, I have no real choice in it anyway just working here in the sandbox. Would still love to get the email that I'm cleared.

        We got attacked recently one injured but my pooch and I went out and did some work, all is good other then that. Stay strong in this crazy process.....

Im a boring file, that's what the BI told me!! Never been arrested, no relatives living or ever lived in another country, havent moved in over 8 years, and I have perfect credit!! Did I mention the word boring??? I'm calling tomorrow to do alittle PI work of my own.( I know... Good luck with that!!!)
          Same here, pretty boring back ground.. I went out of the country twice in 10 years.. one on a cruise.. the other to Jaimaca.. I think what held me up so much was.. I have such a COMMON name.. when I bought my house I had a book I had to sign.. because of the name.. it might of been that.. but besides that nothing much.

What if a port has too many 9's but not enough 7's, do they get to go out and hire more 7's? What do they do about the extra 9's? They can't just get rid of them. What happens if the 7's are eligible for promotion before the 9's make 11? The 7's can't be refused promotion if they are doing their jobs successfully. If there are too many 9's then they promote to 11's do they now have too many 11's? How can they have too many 11's if they aren't over manned? It is not a rank structure it is a pay grade. An 11 is not a supervisor, so they technically can't tell you what to do (though you'd be a fool not to listen to them). They can be team leaders and can give advice, but that is about it. A 9 can't tell a 7 or 5 what to do and a 7 can't tell a 5 what to do. In fact I've seen a 7 placed in a position in charge of 9's and an 11 (not that I agreed with that decision). I think you or your wife has a few things confused.
            This is the last I will comment on this.. cause this is not an argument,and were here for support... 1st damn you can type LOL.. I take it your an officer? if so what??.. your on the line? maybe in secondary?? and officer will have no clue of the REAL process of hiring.. unless you work out of Washington or MHC.. or up stairs ... chiefs etc.. if your an officer.. stick to immigration and customs answers.. not the hiring process.. I talk cause.,., again.. I get a little of the scoop about what happens up stairs.. anyway... GO YANKEES!!!!

Some can do all of that stuff, some even better than me - it would be foolish to turn good candidates away.

                                It really isn't an issue for CBP, though
                                I wouldnt mind rolling with that blonde Andrea from "Police Women of Broward County"!
