  • As per announcement:

    Duty Locations: Locations have changed for this Job announcement please read carefully. The Office of Field Operations is focusing efforts at specific duty locations to meet mission needs and ensure a well-rounded experience for new officers. Therefore, you may select one of the following ports: Queens, NY (JFK Airport); Newark, NJ; Detroit, MI; Eagle Pass, El Paso, Hidalgo, Laredo and Pharr, TX; Calexico and San Ysidro, CA; Douglas, Nogales and San Luis, AZ. You may not change your location once the announcement has closed.

    Looks like my chances are high of landing a spot in only Newark or JFK when my phone rings since that's all that's being offered here. (In my geo). On the flip side, I will be getting a well-rounded experience!!!!!

        The same thing I was thinking when I saw this. Looks as if jfk and Newark are low on body's. I was leaning towards newark but the seniority bidding just isn't appealing to me. Atleast with jfk it's a rotating shift which will give me weekends off every 5th and 6th week. Plus jfk is filled with OT.

          I didn't think of this. Good point as I will end up having to commute on my days off to DC to be with family and having a weekend every now and then is nice. Do either of these two ports do 4 on 3 off?

            I believe jfk offers 6 on 2 off for 4 weeks, Friday Saturday Sunday for the 5th week and Saturday Sunday Monday for the 6th week.

            Newark I think you can request 4 on 3 off but it's not guaranteed. I could be wrong though.

            On thing, newark will be better swap bait in the future for you. Someone from dulles maybe more willing to swap with you from there. Jfk is not a desirable location for alot of people.

                          • I see on the new announcement that it states that the background investigation is a public trust one. I thought that this was a top secret clearance position??

                            • Just got back from my polygraph...it was a harrowing experience to say the least. I won't going into the "rant and rave" details of it all but suffice to say I was inconclusive. In fact, I was inconclusive on every question...controls and everything. Apparently I was the first person the examiner had ever seen that happen on. So I may be (in)famous in the polygraph world now. I was cool as a cucumber, and maybe that doomed me. I don't know but I am pretty disappointed with the whole experience. I will get the opportunity for another one so we will see.
