      • So on the video interview are they looking for a cop mentality or a good old friend/customer service as most people refer to this job.

        • cloudbuster, it is hard to say what they are looking for. My personal opinion is that they want to see if you have the basic common sense/ customer service basics down. They can teach you the LE stuff at the academy. But I am sure others might disagree with me.

              • Quick question, in what form does the TSL come in?

                Email or written mail by USPS?

                I have a certified letter being held at the USPS for me, wondering if it could be this. No idea what else it could be.

                • TSLs come in via email as far as I know. Mine did, twice. Check your spam if anything.

                    There was an increase in budget for 2015 for an adittional 2,000 cbpos. Roughly about 300+ for JFK. Those in process for JFK, stay positive, it should be any day now. Also dont let people discourage you guys about JFk, its busy but still a great place to work. Its by far the best port to work in.

                      Picked up the letter from USPS, its orientation for a Police Officer position I applied for earlier. I'm pretty pumped for it.

                          Since they make you sign a agreement to not reveal anything, all I will say is this. During the VBT, you just have to be natural with your answers during the video. Whatever you feel is the right answer from street smarts or just basic common sense with what is going on. That is what I did . For the interview with actual people later on I just used my experience in my job as examples for the questions they asked. Made things so much easier.
