        • Florida region isn't on there either. Maybe I'm wrong, but did the pay scale decrease?

            • I'm trying to get in touch with the people that schedules the VBT/SI, and I can't get through to them! Everytime I call, it just picks up to voice message, and email doesn't work either.

              They must be very busy or something.

                    • Funny enough, I just received an email back stating I can't re-schedule my VBT/SI to an earlier date/different location.

                      Oh well. That's fine I guess. July 1 isn't that far off.

                      • I applied for the open announcement today. I was surprised Florida was not there, but went ahead and applied anyway. I really want the job, so I am willing to move. I selected Southwest with the thought it should be one of the areas with the most vacancies. We'll see what hapens.

                        • Anyone else besides me took and pass the PFT1 in March and hasn't been scheduled for the VBT?

                            For those of you looking to get hired, this part of the announcement is very important. This is a partial quote from the announcement on usajobs

                            "CBP encourages women, minorities, and veterans to apply for an exciting career with
                            Customs and Border Protection.

                            Female CBP Officers are in high demand for the processing female travelers that are detained, interrogated and/or deported. Therefore, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management has granted CBP an exception to Title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 332, Section 332.407 which authorizes the targeted recruitment of female officers in locations experiencing a critical need. "
                            So, what do you think? I am kind of new to all this process and want to know if I have a chance or a "better" chance to get in being a female and a multi-lingual.

                            Also, where did you get info from? Is it a new announcement from today?

                              Frank, I took the PT1 in December and VBT in March. So it might be sometime before you hear something. Just be patient

                                As many have said before, if anyone really wants a job, then you pick the hard to fill locations, then you are a for sure applicant. Jade I'm an agent, not an officer, I just know where to find stuff.
                                Do you think the west coast was a good pick?
