    It depends.

    The 'average' guy likely won't see much of a change, depending on his circumstances.

    Those working lots of FLSA and those looking to retire soon who have minimal years in might be hurt. Newer hires and upper mid-level management look to gain.

      Is there a list and people request? How often do cbpo get relocated or is it almost impossible?

      Read the thread. Relocation/swaps/transfers/movement has been hashed out on here in numerous posts since this thread was created. While it's probably somewhat easier to move now than it was in 2005, the processes and mechanics are virtually still the same.

      The short answer is that it depends. There are many different ways to relocate. Some officers move fairly often and easily and others find it virtually impossible.

          You're welcome.

          Today I'm feeling blunt. I just don't have the motivation to write a 700 word reply that would, as often as not, only answer part of the question anyway.

            • nearly 5 months after your BI update?? Damn, still a very slow process. Did you have to go through another SSBI, or was this call the first contact since your BI update?

                I got a same phone call 4 weeks ago. " This is Special Agent S.B from Internal Affairs CBP. Please give me a call at 520-555-xxxx" . Trust me, you are not lucky to get this kind of cal from CBP.

                  Actually you may be right. This is the first call since my BI update. May be the new background investigator.

                  Anti-doom- not worried about that. I just cleared for a higher security clearance for the new position I accepted in the military.

                      USMC0844, it's definitely your polygraph. That's exactly what happened to me. My BI re-cleared then they called me for my polygraph. You'll be fine. You know the drill.

                      • Anybody get the email? Did they pull the nuclear option? Mine says they are clearing out the entire inventory of 5/7 candidates. Does this include those with a current offer?

                        • USMC-
                          I also got the email, and immediately called TSU. The woman was very explicit that THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE APPLICANTS WITH CURRENT TO'S. She said that I do not need to reapply, and that I received the email because I had applied under a new announcement for a different location (04/09) and had never received a TO. She stated that IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN SELECTED, YOUR STATUS WILL REMAIN UNAFFECTED. Of course, I would encourage anyone concerned to make the call to hear it for themselves, as I would. In fact, I plan on calling back later in the week to ask the same question again, just to be sure.

                          On a good note--While I had her on the phone, I asked about my BP status. She said that because I have passed a polygraph, I should be getting the call next week! Because they are polygraphing everyone, they don't have enough polygraph-cleared applicants to schedule classes at the rate they need to. So if you've cleared a poly during CBPO processing and have applied to BP, you're in good shape.

                          • Just got called to retake the fitness test along with a medical update.

                            I haven't received an EOD date or anything so I'm almost sure it isn't the PFT-2 yet. They might have just meant the medical portion of it though they mentioned the fitness aspect of it as well.

                            I'm just happy to see things are finally moving along.

                            • Does anyone know what sections does the new CBPO test have???
                              What's the difference?
                              I would imagine it's harder???

                              • Mackabo- that makes sense. I had an application for Gulfport, Ms that I never received a TO for. I was hoping that was the case, but it made me nervous the way the email was worded. I shot an email to them. I will let you know if it confirms what you are hearing.
