    Answer to both of your questions is no! However, IF, and I do mean IF you happen to make it to FLETC, I just might be YOUR teacher!!

      Well now that we all hopefully got all that out of our systems, I believe it would probably be in the best interest of the forum to leave our complaints about other members to private messages. Thus, leaving the forum open for discussions and questions regarding hiring, FLETC, etc.

      Just a thought.

          Its a whole new world today my friend. Having a "C" avg is good enough to qualify you for president. I support education and all, but I earned a BA in political science and the best thing going for me is a gov job (which I cant wait to start, lol) that pays half of what my younger college dropout cousin is making owning a shoe store.

          I guess what I want to say is a degree should not always be the determining factor of who would make the right new hire. I believe a five year veteran police officer with no college degree is much more qualified for this job than I am with no experience and just a poli sci degree.

          I remember my economics professor telling the class one day that in the private industry, most employers look for a person's physical dexterity above education to find a qualified employee.

          Hey and your very right DFLY123, but I just wanted to state this, lol.

            OMG.......please excuse me, but I've got to do this..........you might want to go back to your grammar/spelling books, because the "your" you've used should be "you're!" Ok....I'm done for the night!!!!

President Bush came down for a press conference on border security in the morning and we had class on the afternoon shift.
                The afternoon shift? Hehe, class is only half a day?

                  Those that can, do; those that can't, teach.

                  Have a nice day.

                  • Kudos mi562...

                    ..that was a great answer (made me laugh).

                    Great to see an actual teacher frequenting the board. Thanks.

                          Don't be nervous. Be professional. It's all just a review of your background packet and such. It takes 2-3 hours. Easy day.

                          • Does any one know if cbpos have grooming standards and rules concerning beards, gotees, and mustaches etc? Many local pds make their employees shave clean daily. Is it similar at Cbp?

                            • Does the BI personally meet your references too? Or is it just a phone or mail interview?

                                Right now no facial hair, but there is a lawsuit to allow it.
                                But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                                For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.
