    Congratulations! I'm happy some people getting the call, so much for waiting for next year's budget, I think if they really want you they would hire you quick. You think LE backgroung and military background have the upper hand in getting hired?

    • I got a message last night from the DHS Medical screening saying that they sent me a medical self assesment form because my last one expired. They also said I was being expedited through hiring so I should send it back ASAP. Problem is I don't know which agency is asking, as I have apps in for three separate DHS agencies. I left a message today and will call again tomorrow. Either way it looks good for having employment soon!

Just a little FYI for those waiting for Miami, not to sure about other ports.
        Good to hear. I applied back in march everything is complete including my background, they are only waiting for a letter from my orthorpedic doctor that clears up a minor knee injury. Also, do you know if the people selected for the airport and seaport do the pre academy training in the same place?

          • I received my pre employment forms on 8-16. When I was filling them out last night I realized the deadline was last night. I rushed through everything doing the best I could and went to a 24-hour mailing locations JUST in time. When I returned home I found paper that said to disregard that date and that you have 7 days. The problem is I mailed the packet w/o my fingerprint cards because today was the first day I could get an appt. I'm planning on mailing them today with a note. Do you think that will fly? Also, like I said these haven't even been accepted and I received a letter to go to an oral interview I thought that was usually after this other stuff? Last question, for those of you that had work experience only, was it pretty significant I've been a carpenter for 11 years.

            • So what's next ?

              I called the medical dept. on Wed. and was told that I have medical clearance as of 8/18. However, CASS still says pending. So I called scheduling yesterday to inquire about my status. I was told that I had to take another fitness test. So does everyone take a second fitness test before being offered the position? After I successfully complete my second fitness test what is the time-line for the "call" from scheduling ? Oh, I have clearance for everything else in CASS.

                  I don't think it's a huge deal. Just make sure to put the pertinent information to go along with your fingerprint card (i.e. Name, BP ID or social security #) and I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't take it. As long as all of the information gets there before the deadline. Even then, they will send you an official letter if anything is missing (I missed a signature somewhere doing the paperwork and they sent a letter saying I had so many days to file it with them). No biggie.
                  "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                  "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                  • I spoke with Casey today at 6am and she offered me a position as a CBP officer. I immediately accepted it. My report date will be on Sept. 8th and I go to FLETC on Oct. 8th!!!

                    CASS still shows my background investigation as pending. Casey told me that it was already cleared but that sometimes CASS is a little bit slow.

                        Wow, would CBP start 2 classes only 6 days apart?? I start on the 2nd and you start on the 8th...interesting

                        • So I've gotten all my information in by the deadline, but am still worried about having enough work experience. I've been a carpenter for 11 years leading a crew, big machinery etc. and I have many trap shooting awards and a ccw. What do you think?? Any other non-degree applicants?

                            Did you take the test and receive a TO?

                              CBP has started 2 classes on the same day...many times. They've also combined what would roughly be 2 classes of trainees into one 'mega class' at least once.

                              It all depends on the needs of the service. Two classes a week was roughly the norm in late 03-04.

                              Starting 6 days apart does seem odd though. Maybe one of you is including a travel day as academy time while the other is not?

                                However, nice to see mi562 knows what country he lives in.

                                Every Academy class will have a mi562, those types will even be at your POE.
