      I'm a former Supervisory CBP Officer. You go up one grade each year not two, until you reach GS-11. Then you go up the steps each year until step 4, then every two years until I think step 8 then every three years to step 10. Of course you can compete for GS-12 Supervisory.

          That is incorrect. You go up 2 grade levels every year. You are correct about the step levels though.

          Here is how it works. This is quoted from another forum.

          5365.2 in reply to 5365.1

          How the GS Step system works (Lifted from another helpful source):

          If you perform satisfactorily, you will promote to GS-7 or GS- 9 step 1 on your EOD anniversary date. (GS 5 promotes to 7, GS 7 promotes to GS 9). After another year, you promote to GS 11 Step 1 from GS 9, or to GS 9 if you are a GS 7)

          In short: 1 year as GS 5, 1 year as GS 7, one year as a GS 9, then you reach 11.

          Then once you reach GS 11, the step increases are as follows:

          Advancement from...


          Requires...

          step 1 to step 2


          52 weeks of creditable service at step 1

          step 2 to step 3


          52 weeks of creditable service at step 2

          step 3 to step 4


          52 weeks of creditable service in step 3

          step 4 to step 5


          104 weeks of creditable service in step 4

          step 5 to step 6


          104 weeks of creditable service in step 5

          step 6 to step 7


          104 weeks of creditable service in step 6

          step 7 to step 8


          156 weeks of creditable service in step 7

          step 8 to step 9


          156 weeks of creditable service in step 8

          step 9 to step 10


          156 weeks of creditable service in step 9

          • CBP Gade Levels

            OK, if you want to put GS-6, 8 and 10 in there then yes you do go up two each year. But GS-6, 8 and 10 are not in the BCP scale. The CBP grade levels are currently GS-5/7 depending where you hire in at, the 9 and 11. Then compete for higher up.

                I worked at a airport for a number of years, I can tell you when you have a possible NCIC wanted for murder, you LE training does kick in. I can't count how many fights I have gotten into because someone thought CBP wasn't sh**, disobeyed a direct law order. They know now. Like CBP1895 said, I work on several enforcement teams, provide personnel protection for visiting dignitaries, served warrants with customs agents, surveillance. Yea it can be boring at times,so work as a sheriff in a town with the population of 20 seniors. But I can name a number of 1811's agents/agencies that do even less. I say get in get your experience and move on.
                Mgt. does screw its employees out of transfers and moving to a different position at the same port. They lure you into a city that you really dont want with the morsel that you can transfer to where you want in ONLY 3 years. Well not true. Many, many officers at my port have/are trying to transfer/swap with no luck.

                And DCSkate, not to call you out or anything, but lets not build this up into something this job is not.

                An NCIC wanted for murder is normally handled by the Marshals, not us. At least the 2 I have seen here I my port were.

                People screwing w/ us because they think we are not *****. Well they are correct. We are a circus! About 3 weeks ago an officer was getting lip from a pax and to make a long story short conducted a PD on the pax. The pax hit the officer, kicked the backup officer between the legs and then hit the 3rd officer in the patdown room. Guess what? He walked out w/out 1 freaking charge. And another one.......

                2 years ago I was involved with a cocaine seizure, we already turned the pax and everything over to the agents. I heard a thud in the patdown room and homeboy had ripped the handcuff rail up out of the floor. A fight insued and me and and agent were taken to the hospital because the pax had ripped open one of the bricks of pure crystaline cocaine and went into out faces. My blood pressure was 180/140. The pax went to jail for importation, but not assault on a fed officer. We are clowns!

                And the dignitary guarding and the such, dont believe th hype. It consists of escorting the dignitary off the plane and threw immigration and out the door. No more, no less.

                I am a part of every narc team, terrorist team, special unit team there is. This is the worst job I have had. Is law enforcement everywhere boring at times? Of course, but not like this. CBP was ranked next to last of all fed agencies in morale for a reason. Dept. of Ed was the only one lower than CBP. Mgt treat us like crap, overworks us, and could give 2 craps about us or our families.

                • I never said the job was the greatest, but I did enjoy it. I came onboard in mid 90's as a customs inspector, totally different way of doing business. Especially compared to what going on now. I will never say this job is the greatest but I wouldn't say it's the worst either. I hear alot of gripes from the field. Morale is down, we was last in the survey that was taken. But again, my statement is based on my experience at my port, not yours. Like EPA says, " you mileage may defer"

                  An NCIC wanted for murder is normally handled by the Marshals, not us. At least the 2 I have seen here I my port were.
                  Marshals, and I repeat, Marshals have never responded to a NCIC at my old port (subjects wanted for murder) unless, 1. In was federal charge or 2 it was warrant issued from Washington DC (Federal). Any other one we processed and either tot airport police for holding and pickup or transport to local holding facility with a 1. Customs Agent 2. Airport Police 3. Local PD.

                  People screwing w/ us because they think we are not *****. Well they are correct. We are a circus! About 3 weeks ago an officer was getting lip from a pax and to make a long story short conducted a PD on the pax.

                  So you saying yall gave him Patdown for running his mouth? Each port have their way of doing business. I was lucky enough to be stationed in area where we might have a USA that would back us up, on occassions when incidents happens

                  And the dignitary guarding and the such, dont believe th hype. It consists of escorting the dignitary off the plane and threw immigration and out the door. No more, no less.
                  Again, different port different policys. I worked at a port were they was frequent and we were called on a number occassion for additional manpower, and not as a escort. My old port Dulles, Va is 25 miles from DC, we also have a office at Andrews AFB, so diginitaries aplenty.

                  But again, I performed these duties before 9/11. Things have totally changed since then and the merging of agencies. I got 12 years in as a officer, things change I know. Hell I was in when you Senior 11s gave PD approvals, we roved in plain clothes, half the officer carried .38's.

                  So I am not really worried about you calling me out, just was telling how things were when I worked the ports. Things we did back then is no more from what I understand. We had it good at our port, as customs inspectors. But now must of the officers sound like you. This wasn't a good idea the merger and now the TB thing, whole new can of worms.

                  Anyway,what I do now, I love, still a CBPO (13), wear a suit and work with other government agencies as a liaison. I am not complaining. I am sorry your port don't have your back. Be careful or look for new line of work. ***DAPZ***

                    On the grade levels 6,8 is not included for us that work in gov't it's 5 and next grade is 7. It has something to do with pay ratio and cola. If you were to factor in those you will get the next higher grade level which looks like it skipped. It's all goverment lingo. But yea, you have it right.

                    You new guys will be lucky because you guys will get to journey to 11. We journeyed to 9 and had to compete for 11. I made mine in 2 years, but thier were several officers that were 9 for life and retired a 9. I went from a 5-10 when I was hired to a GS-13 in 8 years. but there some that made it in 5 years. Funny thing is Senior 11 was the best grade back then because you was a supervisor without the headache. Now it's just a grade. Location, Location, Location. Good Luck. **Tired excuse the grammar and spelling, to lazy to correct***
