    The CBPO position is currently a GS5/7/9/11/12. What that means is that you are non competitively (automatically), promoted to the next higher pay grade at the end of each year of your service. If you are hired as a GS5 then next year from your date of hire you are promoted to a GS7. This continues until you max out at GS12. Anything higher is generally a competitive position.
    okay so i see how you say an officer gets promoted to the next grade each year.

    how do step increases work. after maxing at gs12, do you then just increase in steps within gs12 from there on?

    also, if you go in at gs7, do you get gs9 afer one year, or do you wait two years?

    i should really be expecting to make a base salary of $70k at the start of my 4th year? seems too good to be true!

      • If the current announcement doesn't show your region as having many openings (west coast in my case), would that be a cause for concern at all? I'd hate to come this far as a 13-1 applicant to learn that all the spots have been taken already.

        • wow i wish it worked that way with local law enforcement. i could have been stuck under $40k for more than 5 years!

          i had no idea the feds give you avg. 10k raises for the first 5 years! that's crazy good.

                    progress is in my signature. Finished meeting with my background investigator last month in January and just waiting for that to clear, take my drug test, and hopefully get offered a position.

                      That would suck for the places with a ton of OT.

                          I don't know, $13,000 is a lot of overtime. And that number spreads as the steps increase. I'll spend all that OT I didn't work with my wife and kids

                            Rumors of a GS -13 upgrade pretty much rollled in on day one of the GS -12 upgrade.

                            Might it happen. ..sure. Don't count on it happening though...especially in the near future.

                              Maybe.

                              I'd say the average CBPO would do better or no worse. Many who have good at the moment would probably want to keep the status quo.

                              One thing about a journeyman upgrade....it all goes towards retirement creditable income. Not so with all overtime or other premium pay.
