    I feel bad for guys & gals who get to PFT2 and fail, and they probably did coz there were nervous. It would be good from the agency if they give a second chance a month later or so to candidates who failed their PFT2.
    I agree. DEA let's you retest within 30 days of failing their physical fitness. I feel like all agencies should be doing that.

    • Tattoos in general are a bad life choice but hey that's just my opinion. Live with your decisions and mind your business when it doesn't involve you.

      • CBP's uniform policy...

        https://www.nteu105.net/uploads/CHAP...d__070512_.pdf




        Body Piercing: May not be visible.
        Tattoos/Brands: Must be concealed if obscene, racially motivated, or gang-related.
        Body Alterations: Intentional alterations such as: tongue splitting, tongue forking, disfiguring skin implants, tooth filing, etc., are prohibited.

        In addition, previous unifrom policy stated that tattoos would be be physically covered to the greatest extent possible, which is good advice to follow today...even if it's not current and official policy.

        • Thank you sir. Appreciate the response.

          • Wait you can have racially motivated tattoos....where you're working for cbp.....where you interact with a racially diverse group of people.

            maybe I'm missing something.

                    Here in San Diego we have the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa port of entries. When I got the call they listed ports and San Ysidro was one of them. If Otay Mesa was available they would have listed that as well. They didn't say San Diego and then have me work at both they listed them individually. Hope your stuff picks up soon josh!

                      The best answer for that is...it depends.

                      Some "ports" are actual mere crossings/facilities/sub-offices of a larger "true" port. Buffalo, NY being one. It is composed of the airport, 6 bridges, a railyard, boat dock, and whatever else. In the case of that, yeah, there's a real chance of being bounced around between multiple locations.

                      If you're actually talking of two or more independent ports...the answer is probably not...at least not as a matter of course. Sometimes nearby ports shuffle a handful of people back and forth as relief for short-term staffing issues. Sometimes people get moved for temporary duties elsewhere for a week to a few months, but most of that is handled with willing volunteers.

                        I believe that Otay's passenger side is actually a subset of San Ysidro's operations.

                          Oh man, I can't imagine failing on the first part of the test after going through this whole process. Especially over something like a pulled hamstring. They should allow retests for things like that.

                          • Just got my NOR I got an 84 on my exam. I'm pretty happy with that since I didn't study much because it was so last minute. Ready for this process to move along quickly since cbpo are in high demand and I chose the west coast! I'm in New York and need a change.

                              I received my results also. I got a 94 which is shocking since I walked away thinking I failed.
