    My friend took his poly in bldg 77 @ JFK on Monday and the agent told him they are short staff with the poly but they are getting the job done also it had one other guy there for a retest plus there were two new hires starting there first day of pre academy training

        I would take the Sheriff's Dept offer over CBP. As a CBPO you will be just like a security guard or TSA screener. You will stand on your feet for up to 16 hours a day and do the same thing over and over again. If you are looking for "action" then CBP is not the place to find it. CBPO is for people who are retired from another job or for people who just want a paycheck.

          Or for people who want to wet their feet in Federal law enforcement and start their "Clock", or for people that actually want to work for the agency and do something meaningful with their life and feel proud of what they do. I am guessing by your sardonic comments that you will be filling in the bubble that states "None of the above".

            • Hey guys first off I'd like to thank you for all the info. You guys have been providing the past few months it's nice to know I'm not the only one in the same spot in the process. Every thing in my CASS profile has green checks, and I was wondering if anyone knew when I might be able to expect an official offer or EOD date?

                Well it really depends on the date you were referred to scheduling and then I believe after that whoever got their TSL first I was referred to scheduling in December and I haven't gotten the call yet but apparently once you've reached that step you're golden they say up to 60 days though

                  While I thank you for your opinion, it is not one that I share. I neither with to see any action, nor to just collect a paycheck. I wish to serve my country in a position which whether or not you may believe it, is vital for the security, safe-being, and economic livelihood of this country. I have already been shot at and beaten up, so while I like action, I'm definitely over its appeal. I also wish to use CBPO as a stepping stone to move into DHS's intelligence sections, which is my personal "cup-of-tea". The pay check on the other hand is pretty good when compared my local sheriffs office; they start out basically the same but then within 3-4 years, a cbpo us making double what a sheriff where I live will for the rest of his life.

                  I will decide what I like about the job, and what I don like, once I actually get there, and fully believe that each experience is unique to each individual. So your experience may be completely valid, and I'm sorry if you feel you may have wasted your time with CBPO positions, but I cannot pass judgement on your situation as I have never been there. But still, thanks for the suggestion, but in the end, the decision is certainly mine alone to make.

                        Really? I was under the impression I would have to travel for my poly. I went to bldg 77 for my VBT, I had no idea they did the poly there too. Now I wish they would get some help over there haha. Altleast I known there is something going on. My friend is a CBPO at JFK and he said there is quite a few laterals going on there too.
