  • Seriously!
    With the 100's if not 1000's of applicants already in the pool NATIONWIDE, what difference does it really make with this "new" coming open period... and if there are classes coming up @ FLETC (so what?)... there have been classes going on, just not as many people/classes as before (when we had the push a couple of years ago) when they where double stacking people on rooms! You guys can try to see some light at the end of the tunnel, trying to figure out this process, GOOD LUCK!... Don't look for hope, simply move on as if you never applied, and if the call comes then good if it doesn't at least you gave it a shot.

    Any announcements in the future and hiring for that matter will most likely be for the SWB, because of the highly politicized illegal immigration issue at the SWB, that's where politicians are willing to send money for "their" gain!... Every one of us that has been waiting for years for other ports, not on the SWB, will probably never get a call in the near future. I have been in this process for years now, and in that time I have left other opportunities go by, because I was waiting on CBP and yet here I am years later still waiting, but I have taken some new opportunities in past year for myself and planning on others as well since the chances of being picked up in the near future are so bleak. I have been afraid of making a move where I'll be in the middle of doing that and all of a sudden I get a call from CBP with an offer... well that scenario had to be kicked out of my thought process to be able to move along, and I suggest all of you do the same.

    End of Rant!....

    I understand you want to bring the hopes up of us in the process, but telling us that a new academy will be scheduled @ FLETC means nothing to hiring all over the country, unless you work at MHC and can give us the "factual" 411... don't even bring it up. Cause all you'll get is irrelevant questions from people looking for a glimpse of hope that you obviously can't give!... Thank you for the initiative, but this kind of info should simply be mentioned in passing and not as NEWS for applicants.

      • Well if you were one of the lucky few to actually GET hired and go to FLETC, you are going to be very happy that hiring has been so slow. Less people means a single room, most likely at the Taj. It also means you can actually get to have enough time to eat at the chow hall instead of the bag lunches. It means more time and actual room to even tie your shoes int he locker room before/after PT, DT, etc. Also it means less people in your class screwing up and making it worse for everyone.

        • I could care less abut your response Yoda. If you don't like what I post, then don't read it. Some of those who like hearing good news that is reliable might want to read it. Do you work for this agency? No. Do you know what is reliable and what's unreliable and who reliable information comes from? No. I didn't get it from a CPB tech at a POE, it was from a higher up at the field office. I knew someone like you would respond like that, that's why I put that in my comment. Bottom line, if you don't like it...don't read it.

          • Also, on DelphiForums someone posted that they got the call today for Laredo, TX for the Academy on Jan. 19. EOD is 12/20/10. Whether or not this is a fact, I am not sure.

              Thanks for the info

              It seems we both have the exact same timeline with the exception of a four day TSU difference. Same location and everything...here's hoping!!

              • I find it very strange though that he got the call two months before EOD date...

                  You're funny dude!... I never meant any disrespect towards you, and if you take your time to read what I wrote to you you'll see it, in any case I apologize if my tone was not appropriate. I do have family and friends that work for CBP, so I do have some sources of info...

                      CBP is actually an agency that has many different specialties. CBPO's work in the Office of Field Operations. BP agents work in the Office of Border Patrol. Both enforce many of the same laws with a much different focus. BP works between the ports while CBPO's work at the ports of entries. Obviously this is a very general description. To get into a detailed description will take more time than I'm willing to devote.
                      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.

                        C'mon, man. This job is all about uncovering information. Ask yourself; if you have a hard time finding "cbp officer agent" in google, how will you ever find heroin pellets crammed up the wrong end of average looking passengers? ;-)

                        From what I've gleaned, CBP Officers let a steady stream of law abiders IN to a limited number of entry points, while BP Agents keep law breakers OUT everywhere else.

                          CBPO work at ports of entry like air, land and sea ports. Border Patrol Agents work for the United States Border Patrol (USBP). Patrol Agents work in between the ports of entry on the southern/northern land borders in places like deserts and mountains.

                          • A guy on the Delphi forums was just given an EOD for MIA. That's the first PPOE that I've seen hire anyone in almost a year and a half. It can't be bad news which has been the only thing coming out of these forums in as much time.

                              • I just checked - the guy who was hired at MIA had a TO date of.......... 08/07. It's going to be a long haul, It's just good to know that CBP hasn't filed chapter 11.
