        yes, if you have ever interviewed for a job before, you know exactly what will be asked. its no different, they may even ask more job scenario related questions, however it will still be on track with the usual questions. just take your time before answering...be honest, thorough-yet brisk and to the point and you will be fine

            From the look of it, she's a TSO with TSA. Go figure.

I understand that a lot of people really want to gt into CBP, but please be careful with just choosing the SWB as a quick way to get into the job. If you have never been there, you have noooo idea what kind of lifestyle you are going to have to adapt to, its a WHOLE NEW WORLD. Hence why they are always hiring, the turnover rate for the SWB is so high because people get down there and can't handle it. The station you choose, is where you have to be for a mandatory of 2-3 years. On top of all that, a lot of people forget to factor in relocation expenses. It costs thousands to get your things from somewhere like Michigan to Arizona.

                    I know a lot of people are looking for a fast way to get into CBP, we all are, but please really think about where you will be happy working in the long run....the SWB is no walk in the park, especially if you get a location like Douglas, AZ or Sells, AZ where the closest "semi big city" is like 60 miles away.... lol. just a heads up people.
                    Good luck!

                    Who's being rude?

                    You've said you worked for DHS and you've posted domestic airport classes.
                    (I would disagree on the second post there and say that CBP is attached to all international airports, but that's tangential to today's issue).

                    I inferred TSA, what's the problem?

                    Since you work for DHS and apparently don't work for TSA, what agency do you work for?

                    • I dont mean to be rude. But since I am tired of reading thru 3 pages of just back and forth bickering I have to say something. Why dont we all grow up and leave the discusion about who is right. The great thing about a forum is that you can answer what you want and ignore what you want. So why dont we all agree to let the ones that want to answer questions answer them and if you dont just dont answer it. The forum is for information regardign the job not who knows more about it. Yes people are going to ask questions that have been asked a million times before and yes there are those that are tired of it; but in the end that is what everybody does. Like in any job you look for the answer and if you dont have the answer you go looking for somebody that does. and somebody in this forum will have the answer and will not mind answer the question while others would rather not keep answering. Both ideas are totally fine if you want to be helpful kuddos if not then that is fine too. that's the great thing about a forum. Now let's please all be adults because the last few pages just sound like a fight between my daughter and her playmate. I am not trying to be disrespectful to any of you because I believe you all bring a lot of knowledge to the thread and am very grateful for it.

                      • i don't understand what that has to do with anything??? maybe i am missing something.

                        I've been asked that previously and i will not disclose it. there are a lot of people on this forum who does the same, our choice.

                        and no cbp is NOT attached to all international airports......

                        anyways im on here to help others, i saw something rude so me and a couple others said something about it. this forum is here to ask questions, and provide information.

                        soooo have a nice day!!

                          The problem I see here is that you are posting as if you were a seasoned CBPO that "knows" everything there is to be known about how to get our job and what we do...
                          -Working near CBPO's or knowing CBPO's doesn't make you an expert on what we do.
                          -CBPO's you may know have no idea of hiring because this is handled by MHC, not the ports.
                          -Took me 4 years to go through the hiring process and I have seen first hand how much the trends change... but the information posted here is relevant and not outdated as you claimed.

                          Having hissy fits over actual CBPO's calling you out doesn't help either... Merlin is a CBPO that has been answering questions on this board since the thread began, FB is a Sup!... and we have a few more that post every once in a while.
                          I'd say tone it down a notch... just my $.02

                          BTW
                          I have yet to see the "servicing, assisting, helping, providing" part of my job...unless you are referring to the COUNTRY, then maybe...

                            you are right, thanks!

                              oh you know me too awesome!..one big party!

                              everything I have posted have been fact either straight from cbp (which i have direct ties to), or the hiring center itself (which I also have direct ties to)

                              and if im not sure about something i always give a response in an opinion form.

                              and the only reason why those two are even saying anything to me is because I called out one of them by saying it was rude to call that one guy lazy for not looking through over a thousand pages for an answer..FB and a few others came to my defense and they didn't say anything to them...hmmmm.

                              anyways like Idomi said we aren't here for this.

                                O.K.

                                Care to name an international airport that doesn't have a CBP presence attached to it during the course of international flights? I'm curious.
