  • I got a call back today from IA saying my BI is in the third and final review stage. I got very excited, but now with all this news about pft2, EOD and FLETC being canceled my excitement has been tempered. This is not good news to hear.

    • So i have a former colleague that works in IA and he told me that he doesn't know what happened either but he would guess that they don't have enough people to fill the class yet so it will be delayed until they reach that amount.They likely will only be giving 2 weeks notice once it is ready. For people waiting for the call he also said CBP is doing a lot of hiring this year so be ready.

        I wouldnt think it would be enough people, but more like enough funded slots to justify starting a class. It seemed like very few southwestern border places had vacancies at this time, and there are quite a few people still waiting that are ready for SWB. I also noticed that seemingly the majority of vacanies filled were non SWB. Give it a couple of weeks and hopefully they will have something ready.

        • Got the call to. I already gave my notice at work and had my house packed and almost on the MLS. I was due to report in less than three weeks not to mention it was a 20 hour drive with two toddlers. Needless to say I was jumping through hoops this week to make this happen. Thank god I am already Fed law enforcement. I feel bad for the civi's who gave the two week already and may not get there spot back. Unbelieveable. And not to mention its an unpaid move so with a family of five this is no cheap endevour. Well at least I got the call and should be on the next round. I guess I cant complain too much. We are probably the first in Customs history to actually know what the next step is. Take care fellow applicants. I hope to see 49 of you soon in Georgia.

          • @ pointman and a few others. I feel like we just went through a big fire drill. I wonder (thinking way out there) if this has anything to do with Boston.

            • WOW this is definitely a curve ball! Sorry guys hopefully this had nothing to do with sequestration and everything will be back up soon !

              • @Gijoeavila lol, I need a good laugh. I told my wife what you said and she bust out laughing. I'm lucky i did not giving my two weeks. I was gonna give it on Monday coming up. I doubt this will be a two week thing. MHC wouldn't go through all of this b/c of two weeks. Might be a couple of months.

                • This is insane. Sorry to hear about the calls.

                  So what happens when you guys who were already scheduled for the academy get the call again? Do they give you the same POE's? Totally different POE's?

                      Unreal. I was anticipating on putting in my two weeks the minute I get the call. Makes me want to reconsider. Puts everyone who wants to be courteous and give a two weeks notice in a tight spot.

                      • I asked that question. She gave me the PC answer. We will try. I wouldnt shoot the messenger. I kinda felt bad for her making those calls. BUT I was literally at wall mart when I got the call. My jaw dropped. Just as unbelievable as getting the other call.

                        • Really feel sorry for everyone that had gotten the call, but you guys are pretty much up to the plate for whatever rolls out next. Really sorry about that 500 pointman, maybe they could give you some kind of credit for next time?

                          That PC answer crap sucks, but yeah they're just messengers, not agency managers.

                          • Thanks guys. I appreciate the support -That's why we're all here in this forum. I tried to get a refund on my airline and hotel fee but they were both non-refundable. Of course MHC said that they could not credit any money that I paid for the PFT2. I guess ill just go to Miami anyway. I'm still grateful to had made it through the whole process and get offered the job. Maybe this would allow me to meet some of the other guys in here and get similar academy dates like Payneil, RMS16, NYCperson, Swbhopeful, E29 and others. We'll see.
