      So for all of you out there in "waiting" land, keep working out.
      This is why my class is 19 short!
      Yoda,
      Is there a significant amount of marching for the new trainee Customs and Border Protection Officers? Also, how is the pft in that humid weather?

            After you get your TO your Scor doesnt matter.. They used to go by TSU date.. but now they are going by TO date..
            When did you get your TO letter?
            I have the exact same issue as you do. My BI just expired in June 2011. My TO date is 01/09, my BI cleared in 05/09. His BI cleared in 09/09, so 2 years later he is still clear, we went back into pending. He is offered a spot, we are not. Hey, at least we have first place ribbons...

            Good luck with your new career NYCFed, hopefully we'll all meet at JFK.

                Its a ridiculous system that penalizes people that were here earlier. Now we have to wait the months and months it takes for a new full BI to clear, even though we cleared one or two already and cleared the updates. Someone takes the test later and and get a later TO and the time frame just happens to work out that their first round of stuff hasn't expired yet. So they get hired and we just have to hope that there are still spots for us when our background clears again, and also before another step in the process expires.

                  We're supposed to, but I haven't seen other classes doing it and we have still to cover marching on our DC class...
                  Don't expect it to be like that the first week, later on maybe, but then again it will be up to your Trainer.

                    This process is a lottery. It's a good gig, good pay, rewarding. We aren't entitled to it, but we are fortunate enough to have gotten ourselves in the process when we did. Even if it takes forever (and we seem to have entered into the abyss where our BI stays pending forever). Oh well. As disappointing and frustrating as this process is it isn't a health issue, the death of a loved one; it is a personal/professional failure by chance, which isn't that bad.

                    We are still in the process which has to be a good thing, right? They could have dropped us all a long time ago like the other agencies did with their applicants.

                      They haven't given us a figure on that specific question. I can say that "stupidity" will get you out the door quick, no matter if you are days away from graduating... and you better pass the final PFT, according to them the first 2 don't count. Qualifying seems to be a hot issue as well, some people can't shoot... But the one thing that has been stressed is "stupidity", keep your bearings for the entire time you're here and be very mindful of who you socialize with.

                      • Well looks like I am in for a bit of a wait. Took the test on the 19th in San Antonio. I live in KY, so it was a bit of a trip but someone called me and said that would be my best option. I applied for the South East position for CBPO. Still waiting on my NOR. I will keep you posted,

                            I agree it is BS system.. First y they went by TSU then they go by TO.. Then they said mutiple times not to worry bout things expiring and they will not pass/skip you..
                            I dont really see the the differance.. your on probation the first year anyway.. and plus dont they re-do the background every 5 years as well..

                            Anyone know how long the 2nd Bi takes?

                            • But its not Suppose to be a lottery.. We take a test, pass everything.. they are suppose to go by a list.
                              It is Disappointiing, but your right.. nothing we can do.. just go along for the ride...

                              • Don't try to speculate about the hiring process, everyone will go through the same thing. The hiring process takes long because of funding, once there is a funded position available you will be hired. Just look at it this way, if your steps expire contact the appropriate office to get it finished. Once all steps are finished you then have a chance to get the call(job offer).
