      • Hey guys! I see many people here are being very optimistic and a few others complaining about their test sites and other things. Well, I am very excited even though I will have to drive down to San Diego from LA. Compared to other fellow applicants that have to travel longer distances I should consider myself lucky.

        I don't know what to expect since I have never been in a process like this. I have tons of question and hopefully you guys can give me your input. I have been reading older post in this thread and I've found a lot of frustration during the last two years or so. Hiring appeared to be very slow but, like I mentioned before, everyone around here seems to have a very upbeat attitude towards this new job bulletin. With that being said my questions are as follows:

        1) Do you guys think this process will be rather quick for the so-called GEO locations where they are in urgent need of new officers?

        2) Do I have better chances, given the fact that my record is COMPLETELY clean (police, financial, etc.), I speak fluent Spanish, and selected the CA SW border?

        3) Can someone tell me what EOD, TSU, TO, NOR, etc. stand for?

        P.s. I wish all of you in the process the best of luck

          Question #1 Simply put. Right now, NO. I'm in one of those "critical locations" too. It all depends on budgeting and attrition. Once hiring resumes then applying in a "critical need" area is an advantage.

          Question #2 You'll likely clear the background check faster but getting a final job offer depends largely on those factors I've already mentioned. Being fluent in Spanish might give you the opportunity to test out of required spanish training and start working sooner.

          Question #3 EOD = Entrance on Duty TSU = Training & Schedueling Unit TO = Tenative Offer NOR = Notice of Results

                • For those who have failed the polygraph with the CBP or any related agency, doesn't this look really bad on your record?
                  As far as I know...CBP doesnt NORMALLY use the poly in the application process. I believe it's only used if they feel there are parts of your background that they feel you need to be poly'd about...

                  • ^^This hasnt always been the case. At least thats what my buddy who works for them said.

                      CBP just designated the CBPO position as "Polygraph required" in this announcement, and it began moving towards 100% Ploy on all going through the process a few months back. I did mine in August and the Agent told me that this was the new policy.

                      • from the announcement:

                        "Polygraph: The CBPO position is a polygraph designated position. There is a high probability that you will be subject to a polygraph examination. The results will be used to determine your suitability for the position."

                          • A quick question, I applied for the CBP Officer listing on USAJOBS, went through the whole CBP eligibility questionnaire, and it asked me when I wanted to schedule my test. Well first it asked me location, so I picked a location closest to my home, and I clicked on submit. Well, now it took me to a page that said there are no tests for that location and OPM will send me a notification as to when I can test. Well I logged on to USATESTMANAGER and I manually added myself to another location that's not all that close but not too bad. Am I good to go for that date and that time at that location? It says on the website that I am scheduled...thanks.

                              Well, if you got the test admission notice then you are good to go. Hopefully you wont find that tommorrow morning the test location you'd rather have is now available and full. Usually if when you filled your app out, a location you wanted WAS a testing option, it will be. Example the same message was given for michigan applicants, but detroit area WAS a testing option in the application. The next day detroit had test dates. Id check back in a day or two and if available you can change to one closer to home.

                              • No I don't think it was a testing option at all. I wanted to test in Washington, DC, but all they had was Norfolk, so I changed it to Norfolk and it said I was scheduled for Norfolk...like I said, hopefully I'll be good to go.
