      go for it. from the announcement:
      If you are currently in the hiring process or have recently applied to an entry level CBP Officer announcement; reapplying to this announcement will override your current application.

      if the announcement you applied under closed, then yes it is too late.


      question
      why is the hiring right now for GS 5/7 and not GL 5/7? there is a significant difference in pay

        Do not worry about that, background investigator will go over your packet and ask you if there are any changes since you filled it out.

            • Hey everyone. Looking at the CBP announcement that came out today. Just a quick question, when you pick your location preference, do you automatically go to that location? I know with other LE positions where you apply in your region but can be placed wherever they need you after the academy. Also does CBP relocate people or do you stay in one spot?

                Believe me, I know. But I doubt a DO will leave for CBP. Now, IEA's all day long.

                  Not for CBP but for other agencies. But yes, mostly IEA's are looking elsewhere.

                  • Any movement? My BI's been siting in the security office for a month now. I don't even feel like I'm even a candidate at this point. It's a race between this and other positions at this point! CBP might miss out if they linger!

                      Yes you are locked in to the region you select. So select wisely. You could select the Florida region and score in the 90's and not get selected while others select the swb and score in the 70's and get selected. I didn't realize I was locking myself in at the time. I thought it was just a "preference" and that they would send me where needed like most federal le jobs. Luckily I scored well and received a tsl but everything happens slower in the Florida region.

                      • Does anyone know what kind of paperwork is sent to applicants after the TSL? I am under the impression that it is medical/ pft1 related.

                        It would be greatly appreciated if someone can provide specifics.

                        Also, how does education and previous work experience factor into placing applicants into hiring categories?

                          PF1/Medical is next. They'll send you a packet to fill out which you should receive before your date. Bring everything that was mailed with you. If you have your BA and 1 year full time specialized work experience, you'll get GS-7. If you finished 1 year of grade school, you'll get a GS-7. Anything less: is a GS-5. As for hiring categories. No idea. I keep hearing it's based on score. My guess score is just one part. Generally things are based on whole person/packet concepts. Or some other HR Magic policy agencies and OPM decide to employ.

                            CBPos have never hired under under the GL payscale, except for the possible exceptions of a handful of CBP-(Enforcement) Officers.

                            The short answer is that the position is/was never defined as "LEO" under the GL payscale. Up until 2008, CBPOs were not defined under 12D/6C 20-year retirement either. When the retirement provisions were changed adding CBPOs to the mix, CBPOs were added as a class to the retirement...still not defined as "LEOs" though.

                            Some of the past agency pay/compensation reform packages that have been kicked around have proposed to address this omission and retify it but, as of today, it is what it is.

                            As a practical matter...it's only a issue as a GS-05/GS-07/GS-09. Past that, everyone converts to GS pay.

                              What does that mean that it will override your current application??? because i am in the process and I would also like to change my geo location...does it mean that I would have to start all over again??
