    I have no way of verifying the accuracy of the above. Nonetheless, I will sleep better tonight. At this point, even false hope is welcome.

          Thanks a lot for that news man. It gives me a glimmer of hope and something to tell my folks the next time they ask me "Are you just making up this CBP thing so you can live here for free for a few months?" Haha

          • possible calls...

            If calls do ever start to come this year for some of us (let's hope!) does anyone happen to know the area code they will come from? Minneapolis or Washington for example? I don't always answer my phone with numbers I don't recognize (including "unavailable" numbers) but maybe I should just start answering every call that comes to my cell phone, lol.

            Also, just curious if anyone else out there know anything about CBP in St. Thomas? So far in the last year and a half I've only come across one other person who signed up for the same locale.

            Thanks all, good luck to all!

              It comes from Minneapolis. When they call it will come up as RESTRICTED or UNAVAILABLE. If I were you, answer these calls! But if you do not, they leave a message.

              • FYI- I just saw that USAJOBS has a bunch of FAMS openings up if anyone is interested.

                • It only makes sense that when they finally get around to opening up training that they'll be running several classes each month. They have several hundred people to hire and start training before October, 1st.

                  • It is no secret that hiring has been very slow, to say the least, but the agency still has to replace many who have quit, been fired, dropped off the face of the earth, died, or otherwise stopped showing up for work, in addition to the small increase in officers passed in last years budget. When hiring does resume, I think it will be rather vigorous for a short period. In my port alone we lost a full shift and had to come up with crazy schedules to avoid manning shortfalls and overtime.
                    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.

                          • Does anyone know when they're going to get the Call?

                            I would like to know something. It feels like I've been getting the run around for almost two years now (just like many of you)-- repeating a few tests. My EOD was in August of 09. My geographic area is Vermont. Does anyone have a CLUE when I'll get the call? Also, when and if I get the call will they leave a voicemail message if no one is there to take THE CALL? Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks

                            Comment


                            • i hope you get the call soon because i've been in tsu for vermont since january of 2009.

                              noone really knows anything right now. alot of speculation and rumors but eventually they have to fill spots.

                              • Thanks anyday

                                I hope we all get the call soon. I just keep hearing guys get the call within 30 to 60 days after EOD? I'm just wondering -- what is the hold up?
