    I selected the mid east coast region. Ok. Yeah you're right, I just looked at the opm site and the step 10 is 45,057. The 39,282 is for step 5. That makes me feel a little better if I could get GS-7 at a step 10. Thanks.

      I pose this question to everyone who may have had this thought or has been here and decided already. Of course I'm in the midst of the hiring process and was contacted the other day regarding the next step in the process. I decided to go ahead and accept the appointment because I'm still undecided and you never know what may happen down the line. But my position is that from what I've gathered a GS-7 (step 10) slot is the highest you can obtain as a new hire. I'm assuming that is the $39,*** salary listed on the announcement. I understand there is an opportunity for overtime and differential once you actually get you your port, but if I did decide to take the final offer it would mean a substantial pay cut for me initially until I advanced in steps or worked numerous overtime hours. To those in this situation or who have decided and moved on, do you think it is worth it?
      You are only looking at the short term. You are only a GS-7 for a year. Look and compare the long term to get a better idea. If you start at a GS-7 in four years you will be a journeymen GS-12. A GS-12 right now without accounting for any raises during the four years it would take you to get there is 70,192. That is rest of the United States. It could be more depending upon locality for your location. How does that compare with what you will be making in your current job in 4 years? It make be worth tighten up the belt for a few years

      • Thanks Firebug. True. I was under the impression that as a CBPO you did not receive locality pay on top of base pay. It's more in comparison to another job offer (initial and down the line). I understand the long term benefits, and I've put that into the equation. The short term is my concern at this point.

          Base pay of a GS-07/10 is 51K and change, Rest of US locality.

                        Don't fall asleep on step test and you'll be fine. Good luck.

                                I agree, stay awake on the step test. So annoyingly repetitive!!
