          They usually give the specific ports you would going to so you can research the ports before deciding.

            For those of you playing Russian roulette and declining offers because you aren't given a POE of your liking, due so wisely. Make sure you have a good and honest reason to do so. A legitimate example would be that your 4 year old daughter has a condition that is only treatable at several specialized clinics in the U.S. and none of the POE's offered are driving distance. Heaven forbid anyone's child is in this situation but you catch my drift. You'll be submitted to a SPI again and a highly regret your outcome if one of the Supervisory Officers conducting the SPI questions your reasoning for not excepting an offer. Especially when applicants are getting a handful of locations offered lately. There is a good chance that one or both Supervisory Officers sitting in on your SPI where only offered one locations back when they were hired and it was una mierda de POE yet they stuck it out and got to where they are now. An excuse of not wanting to be too far from mommy and daddy, girlfriend Crystal didn't like any locations offered or you cant imagine being so far from your best bud Bubba aren't going to cut it. I know my Supervisors that volunteer to sit in on these interviews would have a field day with applicants turning down offers. Another thing to keep in mind if you are not a veteran, is that all these positions are getting swamped by veteran applicants that are now leaving the armed services. Eventually I'm pretty sure all of you declining offers will get hired but do you really want to take the chance of getting left out? All I'm stressing is make sure your reasoning to decline is legit and well thought out. Good luck to those in the process and stay safe.

            I don't know.

            I'm not a supervisor and I don't judge interviews but I am a guy who did a multi-year stint in one of the most remote, "hardship" ports out there.

            If a new person recognizes the likely failure of working somewhere and dodges early to avoid the whole mess, looking for a workable location, I wouldn't hold it against him.

            I seen more than a few people move to places they don't want to be at and then spend years trying to get out. Families stressed out. Coworkers impacted. Nobody really wins.

            Then, while there's a guy in port "WWW" trying his best to get elsewhere, there may just be a new hire or transfer really wants "WWW" but who gets jammed because that spot remains closed with a guy who's interests are elsewhere.

            Maybe you're right and management and the interview board frets over such things. Their mistake...if you ask me.

                The CBPO position is a great gig. However, I'm that overly ambitious person that likes to be challenged daily. After some time with CBP, you'll hit a tempo and it can be somewhat robotic at times.
                I'm with another LE agency and so far it's been pretty enjoyable.

                              Come to think on it, I've no idea of the tech hiring process.

                              I don't imagine there's much similarities. Maybe there's a bit of overlap in their background processing.

                              Techs are glorified mail clerks, cashiers, go-fors, and aides. Except for having access to some of the lesser computer systems, a Tech's duties are not typical CBPO duties, unless maybe a CBPO is injured, pregnant or otherwise on temporary light duty.

                                I wonder if CBP Technicians have a fitness examination requirement ?
