My main choice is JFK, but at this point I am willing to take any job anywhere in the country. Additionally, If they eventually decide to purge the entire TSU I don't want to be at a disadvantage having never taken the new test.

                      In a nutshell, will the new application erase my progress or change my TSU location?

                      Any insight would be greatly appreciated, particularly before tomorrow.
                      From the Announcment incase you missed it..

                      3. If you have been tentatively selected for a CBP Officer position and you reapply under this announcement and subsequently are referred and selected for a position under a different geographic location, your new referral and selection will replace any existing CBP Officer selection for which you are currently in process.

                      Im in for JFK too.. Same TO date as well.
                      I call TSU about ever 2 months or so to check my status etc... I think we're good..

                        Sounds like my it is my turn for the polygraph.
                        I thought CBP didn't poly, or at least thats what my buddy who works for them said, i don't think he took one, i guess they changed it.

                        • Saw the opening for the position begins tomorrow. Interested in taking the test but haven't heard any of the "ins" and outs" of the job. I'm pretty sick of my gig working with juveniles and interested in something different. Anyone that can provide some basics of the job? Interested in what kinda shifts CBPO's work? The one thing I heard from some of the guys as I was crossing into TJ recently was that they routinely are ordered to stay for double shifts. So they are working maybe 2-3 16's a week? This is a part of the reason I'm looking into getting out of corrections. Not feeling the mandatory overtime anymore. Also I completely understand people have to put in their time with any department. But say after you've knocked out 5+ years (or more) on the line searching cars, is there any opportunity for specialty assignments? Again I know virtually nothing about a CBPO's role, but am already testing for BPA. Any information that can be provided from those wiser than myself is greatly appreciated. . .

                            So you can test anywhere that there is an opening test date even though its not the place you applied to work for?

                                Yes.
                                You can apply for Alaska and test in Guam...if you want. CBP won't care.
                                Keep in mind you'll be footing the bill as far as your expenses occured in traveling to/from the testing location.
