  • Just a quick question. I know this has been discussed numerous times on this forum. If one were to decide to change geographic locations during an upcoming vacancy announcement for CBPO, would they be given the new location with their original TSU date or the date of the change? Just contemplating my options since I have so much time to wait.

      From an email I got 30 days after TSU.

      "Q. Since there are no vacancies in my geographic location, can I be offered another location?
      A. Unfortunately we are not able to offer you a location outside of your selected geographic location. In order to be considered for another location, you will need to reapply when the next vacancy announcement is open on USA Jobs. Please be advised that if you reapply and are selected for a new location, your current file will automatically be closed. You can only be selected for one geographic location at a time for this position."


      Looks like if you reapply to a new vacancy, you have to start the whole process over. You could always call and ask. I just had a friend waiting over a year for ICE. He called to see if he could change his location, and was given an EOD within 1 week. So it's worth a shot.

        Don't abandon hope. TSU in December and EOD in January. It's only a month and a half away.
        But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

        For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

          How it was explained to me, is if you reapply under a new announcement and receive a TO, your old application will be closed, but all of the completed items will transfer. If you change locations for the same announcement you applied for initially, your TO is canceled and your file closed, until they send out more TO's for your new location. If you receive a TO for the new location any items that are still valid will transfer.

          You can chase the open slots all you want, but even the small ports get people sometimes. If you change ports you could make your wait longer. A couple years ago, if you wanted to get on quickly you put down JFK, SFO, or the southwest. Not any longer. Either way it is a gamble. My advice is put down where you want to go and hope for the best. When hiring starts going full tilt again then change locations if you just want a job, but don't complain if you are selected for an area you can't stand.

                I second that. If you get kicked out of TSU to re test it shows up on CASS first. I had all green checks and I was in TSU for 5 months, my fitness and medical expired and I found out through CASS. I re tested and I am back in CASS. Back to green checks.

Whether they post on this website or not, who knows? But the hiring slowly continues, allegedly. Best of luck to you.
                  That would be perfect, I am thinking more of Spring 2010. Even though I have been in TSU for almost 8 months I have 5 or 6 people in front of me in the TSU line for SF/OAK.

                        I wish there was any info on Buffalo other than how terrible the Bills are! A have a friend who's parents work for the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission. They know a lot of CBP Officers and are going to ask around for any shed of hiring news... I'll keep you posted.

                        200+ days in TSU now... Lucky me!

                          I noticed you graduated from FLETC in August and applied to ATF two months later. Already trying to get out of CBP? Please don't tell me it's that bad.

                            I think 1811 is everyone shooting for ultimately. CBP is a career jump start for everybody. As you can see, I am in the process with two other agencies.
