      Now, I have a question. I am undecided between SW, West Coast, and North West and would be willing to change the geo to any as long as the hiring process takes less time. I've been doing my research and on the posting it says they're in need for officers on North West, I originally wanted west coast but since I would like to speed up the process I was rooting for SW. Do any of you guys know a little more about this. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      I have nothing holding me back so anywhere in the west is ok
      Back in 2012 when I applied the main hiring region was the southwest, so thats where I applied, expecting a quick hiring process. I have now been in the process for over a year, and it will probably be 6 more months or so before I get the call. Its all luck and chance. Ive seen people apply for the same location but one waited 8 months, the other has been waiting for 2 years so there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to how they select applicants. I would suggest applying to where you would love to be, and focus on that, no matter how long it takes.

        Hell, just because you change you location to the SWB, that doesn't mean it'll be a shorter process.
        Very true Cur679, I do believe he was thinking of switching bc he wanted JFK. Unless I am remembering incorrectly. Go with the geo you want to be in. I chose AZ bc I wanted to get in quickly, that didn't work out for me. Still I'll be more than happy when they call me and offer me a spot in AZ.

        • I have a question regarding geo offerings. After you go through all the motions of the hiring process, are you assigned only 1 geo area or do you get to choose from a few? I ask this because I made a mistake and assumed NY was NE and selected Central East on my application because my wife and I are looking to move out of NY in the near future due to the cost of living. I may have to change the geo on my application because being offered NY would contradict our intentions moving forward. I change geo by calling MHC?

            If you get "the call," you may be offered only one port or you may be offered your choice of one of multiple ports within the region that is on your TSL (the region that you identified as preferred). I've never heard of an OFO applicant being offered a port outside his region of preference.

            The best way to change your preference is to email MHC. If you want to change it, do it before you get a TSL.

              A couple of guys I work with who have applied to the southeast region have been offered POEs here in California. One of the guys has been offered San Yisdro twice and Otay once.

                      • Really? Thanks! Yes it was done at Markham Park. It wasnt that difficult either. All 5 of us passed although I think there was supposed to be 6. Worst part by far was the mosquitoes. 30 bites on my legs alone. Bring bug repellent lol.

                              Results vary for everyone. I applied for SWB and I finished my process in a little over a year, and I received the call about 2 weeks ago. I am one of the lucky ones because there are people who applied to the same announcement and the same geo. pref. and are still going through the process. If NW is where you think the hiring is going to be, then apply, but do not expect to get through the process any sooner than anyone else.

                              I wish you the best in your application process and I hope what information this forum has given you helps!!
