    Primarily it's location and money...or the perception of money.

    Virtually 90% of BPAs are on the Mexican border. There's not a whole lot of options to go off the southern border. Compound that with the fact that Border Patrol's movement policies are no more employee friendly than ours and you have a bunch of PAs who really have little chance of getting to where they want to get as PAs...especially any time soon in their careers.

    As far as money goes, the BP is in the process of modifying their overtime policies. Most PAs stand to lose some money when the conversion from AUO(the old system) to BPPRA(the new system) comes to full fruition. Plus. much of Border Patrol has always ran with the misconception that OFO is a cornucopia of overtime/differentials funding and that the average CBPO clears more cash than the average PA. Depending on circumstance and location, there's truth to that notion. Still, many of them jumping into OFO will end up seeing their pay cut even more than that what they were staring at with the BPPRA. They don't see it that way though. For most, the realities of OFO will soon cure them of their misinformation.
    That's interesting..thanks

      Looks like you are a few days ahead of me, but I haven't had a poly scheduled yet. Unlike you, I had my 'pre-employment forms' go green on CASS on Tuesday. They had me re-do my E-QUIP signatures late last week for some reason.

      Did you do the VBT in Tampa or Miami? I was in Tampa.
      Where is your poly? When did they contact you to schedule it?
      You don't have to answer, but wondering what your score on your test was or if you have Vet Preference. Just so I can compare to where I am at to see if that's why you are faster than me. Might not make a difference, but who knows with this process lol

      Hey Mike924!
      I did my Vbt in Miami and the poly is scheduled in Miramar. I was called on March 3rd to schedule the poly. In the test, I scoreed an 89. I have 5points veteran preference.

            Oh ok. You did say you got veterans points so that is probably why you are farther along than me even though I scored a 98 and tested a year before you. good luck with the poly.

                  Thanks Josh!
                  How long have you been waiting for the polygraph call? I did the VBT on February 13th and the called me on March 3rd to schedule the poly. I think you should try email or call them. good job on the test. 98 is superb.

                    I submitted my eqip and fingerprints at the beginning of Oct, so I guess I've been waiting since then. I've tried on numerous occasions to email my case manager and have never once received a response. If anyone has any number that I could call, that would be very helpful. I don't understand why this process is taking so long for me

                      Wow. Make sure you email the right case manager. I emailed my case manager once, and he replied the same day. I'm assuming you've already done your medical and pft1 Right? email or call one of these case managers based on your last four:
