      • Hey Yoda. When did you change your duty location to Orlando? It seems like you did that after you received your TO? Isn't that right?

        • Hi guys, I'm new to the CBP officer game. Anyone know how long the whole process takes? I know city cops' whole process takes about 4-12 months. Is this the same with the CBP officer position? Also, just curious what does TO stand for? (I've been reading this forum for a couple days now with that accronym come up numerous times).

            2-4 years is more likely for CBPO. TO = Tentative Offer.

              I just read your footnote, a score of 100 with no TO yet in the Northeast...shows where I really stand with a 96 for the Northeast.

                Yeah, I'm a current fed employee so I am well accustomed to the saying "Hurry up and wait", I'm only 4 years away from the 37 year old cutoff so I hope I can get in with CBP before that day arrives.

                    • I wish I could see who received a TO and their score...to gauge where I stand. Honestly I will go anywhere but I don't want to get STUCK somewhere not so disirable for a good 10 years or my career.

                        I currently work for TSA, I love my job despite what others think about the agency and job itself. I would be happy to stay with TSA for my career but I feel that I'm capable of more, hence my pursuit of a position with CBP. I would be more than happy to go anywhere for a position with CBP, Southwest border included, but I'm married and my wife would like to remain in the New England area because of family, I'm lucky she's still on board now that they are giving out TOs by region and not state.

                        I'm waiting patiently.......you should too, a 96 is a very good score, I'm confident you'll get a TO eventually, I keep telling myself that they have a major priority with the Southwest border and once they get staffing levels where they need to be we'll start seeing more offers for non-SWB ports.

                            Yes, my initial app was for LA/Long Beach in 2007 and I re-applied in 2008 to Florida in order to get the geo I really wanted...
                            Once I received the TO for Florida all of my steps transferred over and the original TO for LA was withdrawn.

                              So is changing your preferred GEO to SW Border in order to receive a TO a way of expediting the whole process? Not that I did that with that intent, but if I understand correctly it seems it would work.

                              I received a TO for Cali SW Border after I changed my GEO from WA State, but really am more interested in WA State. If I change back, will I prolong the process a great deal?
