  • I'd probably be a lifer. I wan't to move up the ranks into management. I don't care about pay either. I'm not going anywhere else without an engraved invitation.

      • As an aside, I've met many of those 'young and in shape'ers who, after leaving CBP, decide 2-3 years later to come on back to the Agency.
        People , of whatever stripe, leave CBP for whatever reason(s). Many of them find out that the grass isn't always greener elsewhere. It all depends. That's pretty much true of life anywhere.

        • Well I'm back from Training (OCS), and while there I received a message about having to do a ploy, three years into this process... So I'm scheduled right now to do it on the 19th of Aug!...

While a polygraph may disqualify you from a position you are applying to, it can't be used against you on your current job as a CBPO. If you have any doubts you can contact your NTEU rep. (The informational poster with this info is usually displayed right next to the Fair Labor Practices poster, which u can usually find in the employee lounge, or supervisor's office)
            Just curious, what if you fail poly test of other agencies, say USSS, DEA, etc, will they notify your current employer such as CBP OFO? I thought polygraph was an application process where it needs to stay confidential on both sides, meaning that applicants can't reveal poly questions to other people, and likewise, the agency can't reveal poly results to applicant's current employer. Am I right????

                          I have no doubt they will. Attrition is only temporarily abated. People leave and new people must replace them. It's kind of like a game of musical chairs. As other agencies start hiring, those looking to jump ship create slots for new guys. Others quit for varied reasons. In addition, there are lots of older guys leaning towards the exit. You know: retired E-7/E-8 types collecting their military pensions and now already have 15+ yrs as legacy I/C/CBP. And keep in mind that construction on the Skid Row expansion is underway which will fully double the size of what is said to be the busiest land border crossing in the world. Have patience young padawan.

                              Thanks for the info. I also saw that there is a private group that is building an airport terminal on the US side of the Border for Tijuana int'l airport and it will be connected by a 500-foot long border-crossing pedestrian bridge. Between the SYS expansion and potentially having CBPO's staff a new POE from TJ airport, it sounds like there will be some additional need for Officers.

                              For those interested in the TJ Airport terminal in the US:

                              From USA Today:

                              The State Department says Otay-Tijuana's facility would provide "a more convenient, cost-effective, reliable and secure crossing" of the border and eliminate "long and unpredictable border waits and congestion" without compromising security.

                              The facility would include the bridge, a 75,000 square-foot building and a parking garage. It would serve up to 17,000 travelers daily. The building would house U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities, retail shops and offices.

If for some reason i were to fail the poly for BP, do you think that will affect my job with CBP? Would they come after me or try and fire me? I know quite a bit about the poly and how i can ruin an absolutely perfect canidates dreams for no reason at all..
                                LOL and what are the OBVIOUS REASONS as if we did not know !

                                Once off probation the chances of you losing your job are pretty slim unless you do something very stupid or criminal . And even then, many retain their job if they are career at that point.

                                The caveat is you lied on your original background and they now begin an investigation and find out .
                                It depends on the lie .
                                Even this may not cause a firing as Federal courts have ruled it depends on the lie . Example you claimed to have a 4 year degree , you were hired as a GS 5 been working for 5 years . As a CBPO hired as a 5 it was never a material fact for your hiring or grade and it has not gained you any promotion . As always the choir here will point out moral clauses etc. but keep in
                                mind CBP has a dismal record against the UNION and even worse against outside counsel.
