    Any Inland Airport right now.

      • Scored 99 with NJ as my geo preference. Will most likely change that to SWB.

        Nogales or San Ysidro...

I'm assuming that for a location with "Few Vacancies" it is typically based upon turn-over.

          Thanks and good luck to everyone.
          I suggest you read back on this thread to see how the wait goes... especially for a "few vacancies" POE. I have said it many times, and it seems to fall on deaf ears, this is by no means a "speedy" process. Plan on it being 3+ years for your hire (if that), that's the way they used to do it before the frenzy in 07-08'. Best of Luck to all you new applicants, but keep in mind that it will take time...

          • The one wild card that still needs to be determined is what MHC will do with the current pipeline. So as Yoda has reiterated already, everyone who just tested did so to fill spots for 1-3 years from now. And that time frame will be dependant on the needs of DHS.

              To reiterate this statement, those who applied to the "high turnover rate", "critical needs", "always hiring" areas, also known as the southwestern border are just only getting the final call after waiting "only" about two years. All other POEs have people in the pipeline dating back to 2007.

              • an 82. Surprising since I missed half of the math portion. The rest of the portions were easy. Im not in a rush to get hired.

                  I definitely understand the wait process, I am a current federal employee after all, so I get the phrase "Hurry up and wait". I guess I was hoping to hear from someone with a similar experience/test score which to be honest, I haven't really come across.

                  Thanks for the info.

                    People (and that includes all of us federal employees and non-federal employees alike) within this thread AND in the ICE thread "HAVE" had similar experiences with this position, spending 2-3 years in TSU and not receiving an EOD.

                      • How will the elimination of this program affect CBP hiring?
                        CBP has issued FCIP announcements for front line positions as if they
                        were under competitive service, so theoretically there will be no change
                        in the hiring process.
                        However, the primary difference is appointees will be subject to only a
                        one-year probationary period, rather than a two-year trial period.
                        Mission Support positions can and will be filled using other existing
                        hiring authorities.
                        What are the CBP hiring alternatives?
                        Even though Executive Order 13562 eliminates the FCIP, CBP will hire for
                        front line positions, specifically BPAs, CBPOs, and Agriculture
                        Specialists, using the Delegated Examining Authority for career
                        appointments, Veterans Readjustment Act (VRA) appointments, and Veterans
                        Employment Opportunity Act (VEOA) appointments.

                          • I have an interesting question about what I should do in this hiring process. I originally signed up to take a position in New Jersey. The reason for this is that I have 4 years of experience working at an airport where CBPO is located. What I am wondering is knowing that New Jersey is not likely to fill alot of positions should I change it to Rhode Island. Why I am wondering that is because I know a recruiter in Rhode Island. Would that speed up the process at all or do you think that it will be beneficial to leave it the way it is?

                            On a side note NOR 80-Not to happy about the results, but I passed so we will see.

                              Your score will definitely won't help you applying to a POE with very few slots available, you can change your GEO pref at anytime before you receive a TO... so if you're willing to live down in the SWB for 5-10 years, I'd say that would be your best bet. Unless you're a disabled vet or vet, you would be placed down in the pipeline of TO's, since VET Pref will be really taking effect from March on...
                              This means that a VET with 30% disability, that scored a 70, gets 1st pick over a non vet that that scored 100... Then to VETs, then non vets... I'm pretty sure vets will also be placed in front of recent college grads as well, whenever the recent college grad thing is put in place. Knowing a "recruiter" will not help you since the hiring is done by a separate contractor, and not actually CBP.

                              So best bet to be picked up anytime in the near future would be SWB, but if you want to stay where you are, you will have a long wait... I hope you're not in your 30's already, but you never know... you might luck out and get a TO!

                              Best of Luck!
