    My background went back to pending and I sent in the e-quip forms last week. E-mail only stated the above, no forms or attachments.

      I go the email too. And no one saw this coming. I don't think it is just for the SWB because every other statement issued by CBP has specifically stated that they were looking for people to go to the SWB and this one does not. It just says significant hiring. Plus there have been more than a few EODs on this board that were not for the SWB. Other ports need bodies too just not in the same number as the SWB.

      The previous number for hiring for this FY was 300. Does significant mean more than that? I would like some clarification really. Because this email give me some hope for being hired this FY or at least early next FY. I would really like it if they would just have targeted those that actually have a chance because if I don't get hired soon MHC needs to stop messing with me. I've jumped through all of the hoops as required for about three years now.

      "Please submit all required paperwork, to include your electronic Background Investigation package, and schedule/attend all required appointments as soon as possible"

      Whats the point of that statement? Why wouldn't I or anyone else be doing that anyway.

      Also as of last week my BI and preemployment forms are pending, however I received and email stating that they were received.
      My drug test has also been pending for over a month now with no call to schedule.

        Well you sig says you have a really old TO and you already have an EOD date so you should be good sometime soon anyway.
        What date did they give you for EOD?

          Said who?

          I'll go out on a limb and suggest that the actual number of new hires will be far closer to 1000 than 300.

          I wouldn't put too much importance in what anybody says about hiring projections, including myself. One, I doubt most poeple have that much of a clue, to include a lot of people associated with hiring. Two, we're dealing with projections. Projections change on a whim.

            The last class began on 4/12 and the one for 4/26 was canceled due to the government shutdown scare. The next class has a date of 5/5. Word has it that those who were scheduled to attend the 4/26 class (34 of us) will be squeezed into the 5/5 class with the remaining room consisting of people who just got the call to EOD (such as nms51).

              I dont remember if I saw it in a budget report, or an email, or just a rumor i read on here. I hope it is a lot more and it continues to next FY too. You are right I don't think anyone really knows whats going on. like I said in the post no one say this type of email coming.

              The email just got me a little excited. But I am not as worried as a was a few moths ago. I have since started working and have a BOP medical scheduled for thursday so I can wait a while for CBP to come in I just hope its sooner than later.

                  • I got the same email with no attachments. My background went to pending last week stating my background forms have not been received. I haven't received anything through email or mail besides the probation form that everyone received. I redid my medical and drug test about 3 weeks ago. N.O.R was 3/07. I have a T.O of 10/08 for Georgia. I hope this is good news for non swb people.

                    • There are 300 additional CBPOs to be hired under the 2012 budget. Maybe that's what you saw.

                      As far as hiring this year goes, I'd pay attention to what the hiring center is telling(or not telling) you.

                      If you get an email suggesting a location change to the SWB, then you're probably not going to see much hiring in your current location...at least not until those priority SWB slots are filled. Likewise, if you get an email telling of a hiring surge not limited to the SWB, be ready for one...in your location.

                      • Yeah I didn't get the email asking if I wanted to switch, and I don't want to anyway. So ill see what unfolds in the next couple of months. I am not going to believe anything until I am at the port filling out paperwork.

                        • All signs are pointing to hiring about to pick up at all locations. A lot of us with old T.O.s have had processes expire a while ago and not asked to update them in almost 2 years......that is because the hiring center seen all the money getting wasted for nothing ...knowing we were not going to fletc anytime soon. but now there is anticipated hiring not just swb so thats why people are being asked to update their processes.

                            Thats what I was thinking most of my stuff has been expired for a long time and there was no point in updating if there they didn't have a spot for me. That is until recently.

                              • I applied in nov 08 and tested in dec of 08 everything clear yet no call.... So sad!!!! I'm suffering from seeing all new agents come in and I'm a 5yr old contracted Employee still doing contract... Lots of ICE new hires. For the past months... As for me nothing from CBP.
