    What are the shift times and port hours at your port (Port Canaveral)? I am EODing there on 8/13 and coming from BP in AZ. How is the moral and seniority at the port? Thanks for any assistance you provide.

      12 months from the day it clears while waiting to be hired... Good for 5 years after you get hired.

      • Anyone else EOD Aug 13 and FLETC Sept 12?
        Also, how is the work at Rio Grande City? I chose it over Pharr POE because I have only heard good things about that POE. Can anyone chime in?

          My BI got assigned to an adjudicator sometime in Oct, I'm still waiting. Most won't know when they got assigned to an adjudicator. There is no exact science to the BI. Every case is different,the adjudicator may even call you with more questions. Believe me I wish there was a set time that an adjudicator would have your BI. Atleast we would have a timeline for what is the longest part of the process.

I hope we are wrong though and you get the call.
            Actually the post implied that it HAD been a long time waiting for my BI to clear, meaning it had cleared, the drug test is the last thing I need done.

              Yes they found something in your medical that needs clarified, they will send you a packet requesting a doctors evaluation and waiver, I had 2 issues, a recently broken hand and a blood condition that I had as a youth that corrected itself when I was a teenager, so i had to get a strength test done and blood work showing everything was okay.

              • For those already in CBP: on a scale from 1 to 10; ten being the highest, how phisically active is your job right now? and on the same scale; how often do situations force you to think aoutside the box?

                  Oh ok thank you urban commando. Yea I recently went to the ER because I thought that I had fractured my sternum but it only turned out to be a bruise. I guess they dont believe me that it was only a bruise haha so they want a dr to sign off on some papers. Do you know if they email, mail, or fed ex the packet?

                    Dont get so hype so quick. I've been waiting since Jan2009. At times it seems as if things were moving and then there was a sudden stop that dragged on, then things pick up again and the slow down. I am still waiting for my BI to clear.

                    • Guys,

                      I'd really appreciate all the help, but I have a few more questions:

                      How do you guys put up with the exhaust fumes from vehicles and the really poor communities near your POE? That's mainly the reason why I don't want to work for the SWB. Hell, I even find some of the living areas in AZ depressing.

                      Are there any other geographical regions besides the east coast that wouldn't be hard to get, like central, midwest, and west coast POEs?

                      Also, are there any POEs in the SWB where your duties are performed in an airport instead of border checks? I may reconsider if it's possible to choose a POE working in an airport on the SWB. If so, which are they?

                      Thank you

                          • I think this is the end for me. I have no way to pay for my additional medical that is needed by July 22nd. I was able to get an appointment with the VA but they can't see me until August. I sent an email to DHS hoping they will grant me an extension, but I don't have much hope for that.

                              it was more of a first accomplishment in the process, i know it moves slow and that is why i said i still have a long way to go. just shows some progress, trust me i am in no rush, one day at a time.
