    The FAQ on their page gives a good description.

      I am wondering the same thing. Is it similar to the law enforcement VBT?

        Just to clarify, you mean the cbp careers webpage right? I downloaded the generic CBPO FAQ thing in MS Word format, which I guess is the only information I'll need on the VBT.
        "Officer, you are kinda hot."

        "And you are kinda intoxicated."

          They strap you to a machine that delivers a shock every time you answer wrong.

          Don't worry about the VBT, it's pretty simple. Got a pulse? Don't drool on yourself? Didn't wear a burlap sack to VBT? Your hired!

            It's not an interview, it's a situational based video that you respond too.

                I think that is the same one that is also available when you login to CASS.

                  I tested in March and Geo Pref'd Buffalo. They sent out a round of TO's in May or June. The TO's were sent to everyone who scored a 96 and above, as well as to some of those that received a score of 95. Not everyone that scored a 95 and Geo Pref'd Buffalo received a TO (I know this first hand because I scored a 95 and still haven't received a TO).

                  I have to admit, it's tough to watch everyone else on this board who scored in the eighties and lower receive TO's because they picked a different area, especially because Buffalo was listed as a "critical need area." But that's the nature of government civil service...."hurry up and wait."

                  Good luck

                    thanks for the response. I have a truck so that's what I'm gonna do.

                      I'm in the same boat, I scored well also. Thought/hoped it would've happened a little faster because it was listed as "critical."

                        I can't be sure, for some reason the FAQ link on CASS isn't working for me, but I have a hunch you're right. Thanks for the heads up.

                          I like the law enforcement situational training better because you get a fake glock and its like a video game except you could yell and shoot at the screen with real people in it. Pretty exciting I must say.

                            I took the written test in early last month for Buffalo, scored 97(with 5 Vet pts), still waiting for the TO.

                            • How long does it take for the TO to come in the mail after you're name has appeared on CASS?

                              • Hey guys,

                                Do you guys recommend wearing a suit to the VBT? Since its suppose to be like an interview and the people that review the tape are trained interviewers, I would assumed it is best to wear a suit and look nice.
