    BTW--This may have already been answered but how quickly does a GS7 move up the 10 steps and eventually to a gs8,9,10 etc?

Now I play the waiting game for "The Call"...
              Keep your cell phone on and battery charged.
              Don't tase me bro!!

                I'd save my money.

                Are you/Do you know a DoD or ICE employee? They have free access to Rosetta Stone through work. I'd look into possibly sharing access with them.
                I actually don't know any DOD or ICE employees i wish i did. Thanks for the advice though. Roseta stone is 500 and i only want it if it will help me skip those two extra months at FLETC, which i don't think it will, it might help but i doubt it will teach me all i need to know to pass a spanish exam. Right now im learning towards no.

                thanks again for the advice

                Another question about the pay. GS-5 starts at 29,000 a year which translates to about 15-16 and hour not including OT. Thats kind of low, i could start at the local police departments for around 40-45........................ earlier posts said people that had been working 3+years were making above 70,000. So anyways for current or former CPBO what did you make in your first year. Again i know this will vary based on OT but i just want a general number that i will make total during the year

                      • HA! Thanks guys. Pretty sure choking won't be on the table but I do like the tuxedo T-shirt. It says I'm formal, but I like to party - and isn't that what being a CBPO is all about?!

                          Don't forget to add in locality pay. That would increase the starting salary by some.

                            I made about 7.5K extra during my GS-05 year, in holiday pay, night diff., Sun. diff., and OT. I was at a small, insignificant outport in ND at the time. I'd find it hard to imagine a place where one could possibly learn less.

                              The process is pretty random. I wouldn't worry too much if it doesn't match the order that's advertised.

                              As far as BI's go, the investigation doesn't take very long. Mine was done in February. What can take a long time is the "review" process. I just got a certified letter in the mail today saying that I am unsuitable for duty. Unless I can come up with a reasonable and convincing statement concerning the negative issue in my background, I won't be hired. I'd don't want to go into details so don't ask. The person I spoke with was in DC, so it seems like Minneapolis is basically the central location for all of your info. You have to be signed off by people in different offices, sometimes in different parts of the country.

                              On a side note, has anyone here gotten the unfit for duty letter? If so, were you able to convince them otherwise, or is it more of a formality?
                              I received a NOPA for something I didn't even know was on my juvenile record.

                              I typed up a letter explaining all of the details of what happened, and am still waiting for the determination. It has been a couple of months but I am stil in CASS...

                              They just cleared my Quals as well which is kind of weird because I tested in September of 2007.

                              Will see what happens...
