There is very little that can save you from even the slightest screw up if still on probation and someone wants you washed-out.
    What he asked me is what is the difference in receiving an email or a call giving you a EOD. keep in mind at this point pft2 has not been taken yet.

      I know if someone doesn't pass the pft they are out. Basically just interested in why you both really wanted email as in maybe it had important information or something. Don't freak out guys haha

            No freaking out here. I'm in regardless as I EOD'd years ago. Just waiting to EOD again and providing what little help I may. I need a new set of uniforms anyways as mine are worn out, faded and kinda stinky. Oh yah, and I love academies.

            • Hey any of the experienced guys know how the process is for the North East? I selected the NE by mistake instead of Central East. I see that Central East actually goes really fast, anybody has an idea?

Cleared it in exactly 17min, so I'm going to stick to this course and do what I did today and should be fine. I mixed it with running and speed walking (1 lap straight running next lap speed walking etc). I really hope doing this routine helps me to become faster and less winded lol
                Nice. I think I'm going to attempt to job one and walk one. Instead of randomly speeding and stopping to catch my breath.

They gave me the choice of any post from Washington to Minnesota except Idaho. I was not expecting so many choices and now I'm not sure which to choose. Does anyone have experience working in the Northwest Border, specifically Montana or North Dakota, or even Tacoma, WA? Any suggestions on which post/port of entry is stable, meaning not as likely to get moved around, and easier for family to visit? I'm also waiting to hear from the medical team to give me the final clearance because I had a recent worker's comp claim.

                  Thanks.
                  I've worked in both ND and MT.

                  Virtually no port anywhere will move you around...if by that you mean relocating you to somewhere else within the country. Some ports will have you work multiple locations within a "reasonable" commuting distance...subject to the collective bargaining rules.

                  Now, there is the odd port that closes down, reduces hours due to a lack of traffic, flights, or whatever but that's a major rarity. I can think of a handful of examples in the last few years, affecting maybe 50 people at most.

                  I'm not sure what you mean by having family visit easily. If you mean a port that is close to a "major" airport...well, most ports in need of people will be those ports on the Canadian border...and most "major" cities in ND and MT lie a fair distance away from the border. Expect your company to have to drive a bit to see you.

                  • I am going to talk to my Police Academy training Sgt. Tomorrow about up coming interview date with CBP. I am going to be honest and will ask them to work with me. If not I am going to take the VBT and interview matter what. I worked so hard to get here. My weakness was my English, I studied days and days to pass the test. I just can not miss this opportunity.

                        I understand and will going to try to work with them. There is no way that I can reschedule my VBT and interview to an other day. I have classes everyday. So I have to talk to them to get that day off. If I do not and just go to my interview will not look good. Being honest is the key for everything.

                            Do you think they will give u the day off for an interview to ANOTHER possible job?

                                No one here knows when they will call you. Everyone has different timelines. I got a call before BI and drug. Just have to wait.
