    A recent published government employee survey ranked and rated CBP extremely low.
    This position is not considered or classified by the governement as a law enforcement position. Which means you have to work 30 yrs instead of 20 and you are not entitled to their pay or retirement.
    Morale is at an all time low!
    High turn over rate.
    Very little or no overtime presently available.
    New employees are not allowed to transfer for three years and even after that they are not easy to come by. Especially to the better locations.
    My advise to you (and this is my opinion) if you truely want a job in law enforcement keep looking. Something will turn up. If you just want a pay check then this is for you.
    Terrible information.
    I can't find one thing in your passage that is correct.

    By the way. Did you copy and paste this? I've seen the exact same post from someone else.

          Dude, you are responding to a post from July of 2006.

          Back in 2006, CBPO's topped out at journeyman GS-11, were on a standard 30 year retirement, morale was much worse and attrition was much higher. Plus, back then and still to this day, we're not classified as an "LEOs" under certain federal statutes. Although, since the introduction of 20 year, 6C/12D retirement in 2008, that's simply become less meaningful to the average CBPO under ordinary circumstances.
          As far as overtime goes...I'd actually bet that comparatively speaking there is less of it today. In many places, there is still little of it available. Transfers-wise, things have improved somewhat...but they are still not that easy...especially in many situations.

                • Okay guys, I finally have time for an update. I was scheduled for my Polygraph on Wednesday the 13th of August. I was told I passed so hopefully my process is still running. Anyone else at the same spot I am?

                  • Submitted my e-qip last night and all documents just checked my tracking on fingerprints and they were delivered. All I'm worried about is that I had a bankruptcy about a year and a half ago. But since then I have passed my opm bi for bop and have been paying everything. Even gotten a credit card and pay it off every month.

                    I have my vbt scheduled in Atlanta on September 23rd and will call tomorrow to schedule pft1.

                    I scored a 94 on the 14-1 exam and my geo is Midwest.

                      Good luck dude. That's crazy you were scheduled for VBT before PFT1. I have my PFT1/Medical on Wednesday 8/20.
