      I'm surprised nobody picked San Ysidro on here as a port. With 10-12 lanes I'd imagine it would be looking for new blood.

      Here's an example of the action you'd see:

      Oh, and if any of you remember Homeland Security USA, San Ysidro was on quiet a few of the episodes.
      Actually we have 24 lanes and most of the time it is a zoo.

        We have 3 DSS guys in our office, they pretty much like it, although like all jobs, it has it's moments. They are required to go overseas a few times.

        • Interview with ICE this coming Monday. I'm stoked about it. The email said it was with a panel of 3, so I am guessing it is similar to a BP interview. Any CBP applicants here interview with ICE too? How did it go?

              As Merlin stated, even with the pay grade increase, there will still be plenty of CBPO's and BPA exiting to come over to ICE. ICE is growing rapidly.
              I can actually confirm that. I spoke to a local CBP officer yesterday and he said that there are several officers here leaving for ICE.

                People will always be moving around. We'll see a bunch of former CBPOs and BPAs jumping from ICE/DRO back into CBP as well.

                A lot will follow the cash currently within CBP. Many will chase the idea of a
                9-5 workweek with weekends off with ICE. For some, the grass will always be greener in somebody else's pasture. They'll end up wherever.

                • In the past few years I have seen several ex-BPA's go back to the Patrol. However I have also seen ex-local LE leave ICE and CBP to go back to local LE. It's nothing to see ones jump from federal agency to agency throughout their career. Although I have yet to hear of any leaving ICE to go back to CBP, with the new upgrade.

                    And then there are those who will wait for the 12 pay, and jump ship with pay retention...

                      True.

                      Anyway...that's all in the not so near future. CBPOs/BPAs won't be getting GS-12's until sometime during the first quarter of 2010 and as far as I know, there are no open announcements for CBPO/BPA/IEA positions. With very few exceptions, nobody will be moving anywhere unless and until hiring announcements open up.

                        • Things are somewhat quiet around here the past few days. I take it I am not the only one with some CBP induced depression.
