    • Come on guys... bickering over a futile situation here is not going to lead to anything but useless clutter on the board.
      It is what it is, he got the call, u didn't... call TSU and find out where you are in line right now. You can try to "contest" is but it will lead to more frustration on your part and little to no resolution...

        I more than anyone here can understand your frustration, and I would probably be quite upset if I saw an EOD for my geo without me getting the call first... but it is what it is. It is completely out of our hands.

        --Actually if you call TSU they can tell you where you are in line since they just hired for that location.

        Why frisco got the call and you didn't, only the people at TSU know...
        I was reading your blogs awhile back.... I couldnt believe you gave up Long Beach.... My buddie is loving it there!! -_-

          I'm not upset at you friscoplayrsf. The reason why I didnt get the call is because my background "expires" in July. I had to renew my BI but I hear many stories they would send people to FLETC without a clearance. Ontop of that I am already cleared for a position I currently am employed with.... blah your right Yoda but like i said I wasnt upset with Frisco.

                I never wanted LA, I applied there cause it was the announcement at that time... I always wanted to get back to the east coast, and I finally got it! Not only that, I got the POE I wanted as well...

                    I hope your not near the corrupt ones because I hear a lot of corruption in Miami.... Once you get hired on, there is this Newsletter that CBP has, which list all the new hires and also those who broke the law. They post that stuff online to only CBP employees

                        I didn't apply to MIA, I went for Florida all other hoping I'd get Orlando... which I did!
                        Corruption is one of the reasons for the changes in the hiring process, especially on the BI with a very high probability of having to do a Poly. As far as I know "interim" clearances are a thing of the past because of this.
                        What I find disturbing in the process is having people who were fully cleared, taken off the hiring list until they re-clear once again... makes no sense and is completely unfair to those applicants that have been waiting for so long. And in some cases, as we've seen here recently, those applicants have been jumped over for hiring. But I can say that this whole process is completely out of whack and it never makes any sense... and this has been for the last 4 years that I've been through it!

                        • I'm really glad you've been called, finally. I've only been in the process since applying in November of 2007 and taking the test in Jan 08. I believe that my background is currently pending, so even if I weren't a few years and alot of luck away from being hired, I'd probably be passed over. My favorite thing is that they give you the PFT after they ask you to confirm that you will work for them, forcing you not to give your place of work 2 weeks notice.

                                Well you'll be able to transfer back in a few years. And you'll have seniority, with a lot of knowledge. You did the right thing. I just decided to wait it out and have faith. I didnt feel like I would get the call. But I always knew it was possible.
