    The meeting with my Investigator went great the Interview only took about an hour. He said I am pretty boring which means easy investigation for him. He is doing a lot more for this investigation then the last guy did though, (Ok by me nothing to hide here.) However my friends/references are not pleased with him. When he called them he didn't ask to meet he just told them what time he would be at their house and hung up the phone. I owe them for putting up with this part of the process for me. I have talked with him since the interview and he said everything is looking great. So hopefully he will be done soon and I will get my little green check back. I still think it's odd that they sent someone from Indiana to do my background.

        I don't think you'll be getting one anytime soon. I have the same test date; my Geo preference is at the Southwest border and yet have not received a TO. I may be wrong of course.

              the fit test is obvious if you did everything whit in time and a reps you should pass if something is wrong in you medical any out of parameters they will contact you and you have to send additional info

              • ...another email from MHC today asking to switch geo to SWB

                I won't ask if it improves chances of getting a TO sooner because I know it usually does...but right now my pref is Buffalo so I thought I had a decent chance at the largest/2nd largest north border crossing?

                I kept my pref to Buffalo last month when they asked people to switch and then a week later I found out a friend at the Buffalo station has to do a rotation at the SWB....so I guess this time around I'm probably better off switching?

                Ive scrolled through these pages looking at people's timelines and I haven't found many with test dates 08 or earlier that haven't been hired for SWB.....correct me if Im wrong.

                  There is one member here for the SWB that tested in 07'. My advice to you is this...
                  No matter what geo pref you pick it will be a long time before you actually get the job, 2-4 years, so if you are going to wait it out that long... you might as well wait for the POE you want. The reason behind the SWB needing much more bodies is because of a high turnover (People quitting). A lot of people think that they'll get back home in a few years if that, and when they see that they've been in for 5 years and no options to move in sight... they split. The culture shock alone will scare you away. This is by no means an easy way in, or a step in the door, cause it'll be really hard for you to go back to the NE. If you think such a drastic change wouldn't be a problem for you and your family (if you're married), then go for it...

                  There are some still from 08' waiting to be picked up at some spots in the SWB as well, and keep in mind that you are looking at a very small sample of applicants that are on this board.

                  • Thanks for the advice....thats actually what I was thinking also. Im single and I dont think the culture shock would be a big deal, but Id rather keep my geo and wait a bit longer if there is still a good chance for hiring where I am. Im also in the process for BP, but since there isn't much of a NB option, I would just suck it up and move to bummsville.

                    The friend was hired during that huge hiring blitz in 08 and got in quickly and easily while I was in my last year of school...meanwhile people that know both of us cant figure out why I can't get a job anywhere.

                    • Buffalo station? SWB rotation? Sounds like Border Patrol to me.

                      OFO has ports, not stations. Border Patrol has stations.

                      The only current SWB 'rotation' I know of in OFO is a 62 day TDY to ACCT in AZ/TX. Except in limited circumstances, those are filled by volunteers and mostly with journeyman officers. The BP, on the other hand, is taking/has taken their newly hired northern border agents and sent them south for a 15 month TDY on the southern border. As far as I know, that is mandatory(forced).

                      • Is anyone currently all cleared and on CASS showing you are entered into TSU. I have been green check marks for a couple months now after recent refreshes but havent gotten the TSU message like I have in the past.

                            • I also received the "change location to SWB" email today.

                              If I have a 96 do you think I would get a TO? I would be changing my geo from Boston.
