    This second time around (this past October) the nurses did the vision test, ear test, EKG I believe also, and then the doc listened to my lungs, looked in ears, nose, throat, etc, oh yeah, and they also did the tb skin test again. When they called me to schedule the second medical, I asked if I have to do the PFT1 again, and the operator said no, just the medical.
    Okai thank you very much man i appreciate it! My BPA TSU is 12/05/2011 im on the edge of my seat waiting for the day.

      Well...paywise it's GS-12 journeyman pay. Roughly 70-115K, depending on preferences, shift options, and OT availability.

                  • To all the current CBP officers (done with FLETC and already at your POE).. When you got the call, did they offer you a position for the GEO you selected, or did they offer you a position at a GEO you did not select? I'm wondering if there is any chance they'll offer me a position closer to my current geographical location than what I put down for my GEO. Current location compared to selected GEO would have me move from one corner of the country to the other (and the only reason I changed GEO's was at MHC's suggestion twice). If there's a need for CBPOs in Florida, and I've been waiting a while, might I end up being offered the gig in Florida despite being on the list for Maine?

                    If you want to message me in private, please feel free to. Thanks in advance.

                        Try planning your wedding around a fed holiday. Thats what Im doing. Having it on a sunday night and monday I know ill have off for the fed holiday. You'll have friday night to travel back to NY, sat to get everything ready and time to travel back to FLETC later on monday eve. And you will still have fed holidays off while you are in post academy (37 weeks - at JFK at least).

                        They will not make exceptions for you if you are supposed to be in class or working at all.

                            To the best of my knowledge, you are only offered for the area you selected. Seems like there has been a lot of hiring for the south and southwest, including some for FL, so it might be worth a shot to ask the MHC if you can switch back. I had a guy in my PFT2 who had switched his preference from MI to, I think it was GA because of the emails MHC sent out, and when he heard there were a handful of us going to MI ports he was a little bummed out because he wouldn't have changed if he had known there was a chance at getting hired for his first pick that quickly. It seems like it's a crapshoot either way sometimes.....never hurts to ask though, especially if it is a better fit for your situation. Another option would be to re-apply when the vacancy comes out in March....all of your current scores would probably carry over.

                              If you have already received the TO for Maine you will not be offered FL or Miami for that matter... Once the new TO is sent out your original certificate date and Geo selection are nullified and out of the system. Miami has been picking up people, but if that was what you wanted you should've stayed with it... if not then Maine it is when your number is up.
                              Best of Luck!
