    I'm not contacting them with questions regarding hiring status, the usual "When will I receive a TO" so I don't see why it's such a problem.

    • Its not a problem....but thats there way of saying.....as you can see its going to be a long time before we get to you. If a guy hasnt received a final job offer for your port and hes been waiting over 3 years....then more than likely MHC isnt in a rush to give you a TO.

        No offense, but did you read my post? I'm not looking for a TO, not looking to find out when I'm going to get a TO, if you've read any of my previous posts I'm a current DHS employee and I've heard first hand from other CBPOs just how long I will most likely wait. I have other questions not directly pertaining to the hiring process that unfortunately nobody I know has been able to answer for me. Just looking for a better number so that I may contact MHC and get some answers.

          Perhaps not, but I'm determined to use this process as a means of boosting my relatively weak resume. I'm not going to list it as a job on my actual resume, but I've referenced this "hiring" process in some cover letters.

          The potentially slippery part comes when/if a potential employer wants to follow up on the CBP situation. It's not my fault DHS hasn't hired me, but I was selected and passed a very thorough background investigation (among other steps). These are things that I think I should be able to use to my advantage while I wait.
          Maybe.

          Truthfully, I've never heard of anyone attempting such a thing before. I think you're covering some largely untested ground with this plan.

          I seriously doubt CBP will release any documentation to you or a prospective employer that details your passing of the background, PFT, drug test, etc. I'm thinking you'll have difficultly 'proving' any of it, should your prospective employer ask.

          I'm also thinking your plan has a high chance of backfiring on you. If I was thinking of hiring you and you pulled out that strategy on me, I'd likely pass on you. Why? You have just showed me you're a 'money-chaser' and you've established that you have a likely much better job offer pending in the future that you've invested a great deal of effort in obtaining. That to me screams 'I'm outta here just as soon as Customs calls'. How many people will pay top-dollar for help that's likely to bolt for the door just as soon as a better offer from another agency comes knocking? I'm guessing few, if any will.

          My two cents...
          Mer.

            And how many on here have chosen SWB as their location?
            I'm waiting for San Diego, but still waiting for my BI to clear.

                  For Seattle, I had to wear business casual. Pretty sure that is universal. You will get you uniforms at FLETC.

                  Did you get an EOD? What is your port?

I have not done a drug test. I email them early this week about the DT and was told I would be notified when they schedule me. I completed a fitness test the same day as the Med Exam(8/5/11). I'm not sure how offen CASS is updated.

I am glad to accept her offer and my timeline was super quick. She said if your applying for the SWB they have offers galore. I hope to meet Yoda at the FLETC because I have been following his story for the last 7 months. Keep your heads up and believe me your day is coming.

                      8/16/11 VBT
                      8/21/11 The call
                      9/12/11 EOD

                      I was also in the process for Border Patrol Agent and I started that process last Oct. and I am waiting on an offer from them since I am in TSU for BPA as well. I know I am lucky to go through the process so quickly, my EOD letter is contingent on me passing drug test, VBT and PFT2. I know I already passed the drug test because Border Patrol told me they received it and its a go. VBT is still unknown as I have taken it last Tuesday but I hope all is well. Good Bless you all and I hope so see you at the academy.
                      Congrats on the call!
                      I can see that MHC keeps throwing curve balls on the process... 1st time in 4 years that I've seen someone get an offer with pending steps. I'll look for you guys on the 24th of Sept... if not later on that week!
                      Best of Luck!

                        Any word of classes in October. I know the new fiscal year is coming up an without a budget, I was wondering would academy dates still continue through October.

                        • Just want to let everyone know for the SWB the process used to be 2 years awhile back, but that was due to the HIRING FREEZE that costed everyone time. Things have been moving very,very fast as of late. For the people who applied for the WA land borders TO's have not gone out to anyone. A friend scored 96% 12/2010 and has not recieved anything yet. Wait patiently and when they are ready they will send them.

                          Written Test- 12/16/2010
                          NOR-1/18/2011 84%

                          The days of 2 year waiting is over! Have faith my brothers. People are getting EOD'D in 4 months now.

                            This is the same practice that bit them in the rear end not too long ago... Why they would resort to doing this once again is beyond me. You would think they learned their lesson.
                            Nothing against those getting in in this timeframe... simply that many un-vetted applicants fell through the hoops that should've never even made it through a BI in the past. Trust Betrayed has enough of those already, and I for sure don't want any more.

                              Just curious on how you could be green on everything except qualifications and pre-employment forms when your timeline shows that your VBT is 8/24/2011 and today is only 22 August?
