        Beginning in November 2010, all new applicants to CBP Officer positions must pass both
        a video-based test (VBT) and a structured interview (SI) in order to be hired as a CBP
        Officer.

        The Structured INTERVIEW is very much an interview.
        To the guys/gals that are scheduled for it: be prepared to be "interviewed". Good luck!

For the step test, you either pass or fail. As for how to score in the PFT: http://www.cbp.gov/linkhandler/cgov/...po_fitness.pdf page 11 shows you how to score the test (assuming you remember your numbers).

          I had a strange experience. I took my medical yesterday and my systolic (the top number of BP) was really high, but bottom was low. They took it a few times and it kept going down, but not below 140. I told the doc about my "white coat syndrome," and he didn't seem to worry about it. He let me take the PFT1 minutes later. So, I hope that CBP will look past that. Anyone else ever have the same issue?
          ^^Interesting. I was not told my times/scores. Just completed all the tests. I know i did 31 push ups, 29 sit ups, 14 markers on the side step, and completed the step test, I just don't know my time for the lift test. I wonder if I can call and ask.. I still have to go back in 2 days to show the skin area where the TB test was administered

              Hello all! I have been reading quite a bit of information here and decided to go ahead and ask a few questions. I took my Test 12/2010, recieved my TO 5/2011, I have passed all requirements with the exception of my PF2 (I have not been scheduled for it yet). (1) Is "The Call" for your EOD and PF2? From what I am gathering, It seems like you get your EOD when they schedule your PF2. Is this correct? (2) Someone recently posted a question about the break times in between execises for the PF2. I have no issues with any of the requirements for the actual test but i have not been doing them for instance with a 60 second break in between. (3) I also read 2 people talk about getting their offer, Pre-Academy, and EOD in a Letter.... Is that possible? I thought it was only done by phone call.

              Lastly....Congrats to all that have gotten the call!! This wait is gut wrenching.....Hopefully I get the call soon and get into a November class!!
              1. You receive "The Call" in which they inform you of your EOD date. They then tell you they will be getting in touch with you to schedule the PFT2.

              2. When I took it, last week, there was 5 minutes rest between each part.

              3. I received the final offer via phone call. The scheduling for my PFT2 was through email. Once I passed the PFT2 my "Final Offer" was email

                  It may of took 4yrs for him to get hired but not a fact that it took his BI process 4yrs to clear.

                  His time line says 4-5months the 2nd time around.

                      You will not have to take the PFT1 again, but you will have to do the PFT2 when you get the call. You probably go in for a medical exam and that's it.

                          Keep in mind we hit a hiring freeze for all departments... That's why it took him so long.. Notice people that took the exam In 2007 are now getting EOD's.. Also there are things that are going to slow down your BI... I had to get my eye dr to fill out paperwork regarding my LASIK... O had to provide proof of payment for something's on my credit... So I have been delayed when people that took the test with me in 12/2010 are a step ahead of me because of these minor delays...

                          • Have there been any recent SWB TOs received by anyone on this board? I changed my geographic location to the SWB about three weeks ago, and I haven't been issued a TO yet. Considering the wait times involved, this would seem normal on the surface... however, it seems odd considering how many people here changed their location to the SWB and instantly received a TO.
