That they may just be waiting to request new hires in bunches rather than just one at a time. She also said they are still only hiring for Arizona and Texas, one class per week
    She said they are only hiring for Arizona and Texas? That's not good. That could fill up the majority of classes for 2010, especially if they are cutting the number of FLETC classes.

      If I EOD for a different government job with ICE and then get "the call" 6 months later for the CBP position can I transfer if I want? And if I did transfer would I be able to maintain my GS-11 pay or would I have to accept the pay given in the T.O.?

      I received my T.O. for the LES position last week and submitted the BI paperwork this week. I'm hoping that having the clearance done for this job speeds up the clearance for the ICE position... it looks like I may be heading to Vermont instead of Houston...

      Either way, I'm just curious, not sure if I would transfer but I just want to keep my options open.
      You could always leave ICE and take CBP. However, ICE is a good in, I would not leave ICE. On a down note, I got a buddy who has been waiting over 2 years for that same position. A T.O. and passing your BI only makes for eligible for the job, it's not an automatic hire.
      ICE is just like CBP, after you pass everything you have to get in line like everyone else.

        Just to add, CBP does hiring through Minneapolis where ICE goes through Dallas. I'd bet the bank that the right hand isn't talking to the left, so getting cleared for CBP has no connection to getting a clearance for ICE.

            I am increasingly pessimistic about this job to an almost paranoid extent and comments like that really ruin my day. Haha

            • My First Post!!!

              Greetings everyone,
              I've been reading this message forum for over a year and for some reason I was never able to post. I created a new username, and here I am.

              First of all, can you please add me to the TSU list? My referred to TSU date is March 4th, 2009 for Miami, FL. I have been pulled out of TSU twice in the last few weeks for Medical and Fitness. I am now back in TSU with a date of October 28th, 2009. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't know if I should take MHC's word that my original TSU date will be used or if I should call / email to find out why it is listed as October instead of March. If anyone has any feedback or is in a similar situation, I would be grateful for your insight. Just like most of you, I'm getting impatient and can't wait to get the call. Friends and family always ask about the position, and it can be frustrating as I've been in TSU for just about 9 months.

              Thanks to everyone who post on here and for all the good advice. I read this thread every day, and now I will be able to post.

                  Thanks UofU76 and Thoughtless,

                  I know it asks for any prior B.I. clearances in EQIP but the new T.O. also states that they don't have to necessarily take it into consideration when conducting the B.I.

                  I guess the funny thing for me is that the B.I. was done by DHS for the CBP position and ICE is still a sub-agency of DHS. Considering how expensive and time-consuming the B.I.s are you would imagine they wouldn't spend the money twice to obtain the same result. But I guess that's just the government for you.

                  I'm just at the point now where I'm ready to start working for the government and with each passing day it seems less and less likely that CBP will call me to start anytime soon. Well that and I think the LES job in Vermont would be pretty fun.

                  I'd be real curious to find out the actual staffing situation in Houston / Dallas b/c I could imagine with no new hires in 1 year they must have some staffing shortage...

                    I'm sure we will start seeing calls for others geos soon. I do agree that most hiring this year will go to the sw border but ports nationwide will still need to fill spots opened by cbps who left their position. That will probably be all the hiring the rest of the country sees though. I don't recall the number of new cbp positions created with this year's budget but I'm sure it is mostly if not entirely being allocated to the sw. My bit of hope rests on the former cbpos who left prior to the gs12 announcement

                    • I've given up. I'll keep coming back to the forum for info, but I no longer expect to get this job. It's back to the drawing boards and if they call me they call me.

                      Nothing is guaranteed and that's ok

                          Hello people. I'm in the same boat. I applied for CBPO and IEA. My BI for CBPO has been completed last week.
                          Last Saturday I received a letter from ICE office of personnel security. My adjudicator is requesting for some documents. I sent a letter and the required documents. In that letter I told them that my BI have been cleared for CBPO. I don't know if this information will help or not but I don't lose anything anyway.

                          CBP and ICE share information about applicants. When ICE scheduled my medical and fitness I called them to let them know that I already took the medical for CBPO. Next day ICE called me and they told me that I have to take only the fitness because the medical is the same for both agencies. Same thing happened with the drug test. I think the key is to let them know. Maybe they are not aware of many things. I heard about a guy who received the call for ICE while he was at FLECT for CBPO. He preferred the job with ICE. ICE told him to finish FLECT and after graduation they will hire him.

                          I will keep you posted about my background with ICE works out. I know about many people with this same question. Good luck.

                            I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you a current LES? or do you have experience working with them?

                            • As some of you may recall, some number of weeks/ months ago CBP sent out e-mails about no vacancies. Now that everyone has eachother's e-mail addresses people have been communicating just as we do on this forum. This is what one applicant/ future CBPO has sent:
