    sucks but that's life I guess.
    Even if you do get a NOPA, fight it over something like credit during a recession. Don't give up.

        They bring up how desperately officers and agents need to be hired and how upset they are with pay increases for bureaucrats at the expense of new hires and rampant attrition.
        You know it's bad when the Congress sits you down and tells you that you don't know your *** from your elbow. Haha. I'm glad her ineptitude is finally getting some attention.

        Seriously, this was a great article. Hopefully it will mean that the agency will move in the right direction: badges not bureaucrats.

          They do have some officers stationed at UPS hubs
          And some in what you would call mail rooms given your lack of information
          And in fact an officer working a post office is looking for contra band .
          And unlike you who will be stationed Welcoming people to America and stamping passports ,do make siezures rather boring but much like anywhere else in CBP.
          Actually, CBP does have mail rooms. There is one in DC Headquarters and the Field Offices also have one.

              It is s stupid rule to determine if someone is worthy of a job based upon their credit. This is such a discrimatory practice many states are attempting to to outlaw it. So fight this dude, you may have more lea-way than you think.

                I would agree for some jobs. However, your ability to handle your finances speaks directly to responsibility. They will take into account things like medical issues, divorce, and layoffs. You just need to be able to explain how you got in the pickle and how you are going to fix the issue. Also, in this job bad credit can increase your susceptibility to corruption.

                      I will do my best! I can understand their reasoning to a degree on it but we'll see what happens. Just will suck if it is all over after this but such is life!

                      • The video is pretty funny. I am actually sad to say that CBP does have quite a few managers that act like that. Not 1 enforcement bone in them. I hope our new AC turns that around.

                          Again I swear I laughed so hard . There is suppose to be quite a few more out there .
                          No, I got the unedited version. It might might be in my inbox. I'll check tomorrow.

                          • There are 20,000+ CBPOs and 327 ports out there. As big and as diverse as we are, it's not really all that suprising that someone, somewhere can find some dumbass situation to videotape.

                              It's an animation poking fun at JFK management. It's a little over the top, but it's funny. We've all had a supervisor or Chief like the one being made fun of. It's not a dig on CBP as a whole. If I still have it I'll send it to you.

                                Oh...obviously I've not seen it.

                                "Escape da Jackel" had me thinking it was something based in fact. Silly me, I should've realized that this video, like most of the other so-called "facts" posted by the CBP haters on here, would ultimately turn out to be a work of fiction.
