    Can make a difference in the grade you get. Instead of a gs 5 you may be offered a gs 7. That's about it

      Is it rare or almost impossible to come in as a GS-9?

        Yes, unless you are coming from Border Patrol or maybe another federal law enforcement agency. We have a gs11 from BP.

              • Hello all,

                I have really enjoyed reading this forum. Lots of great information.

                I applied for the first time to the opening earlier this year. Went through the Computer Based Test, Fitness, Medical, and the VBT-SI. I recieved a notice for the position at Newark/New York.

                I decided to turn the position down because it just isn't practical for the me to move there.

                I am definitely interested in applying to future CBP positions.

                How long is the original Computer test good for? I saw that the VBT/SI is good for 3 years, Medical is for 2 years and fitness is good for 1 year.

                  • Guys do they notify you if you pass the poly? If 3 weeks passes and one does not hear anything from IA, then what happens?

                        Keep waiting... Hopefully you get a call from the background investigator.

                        • Hey everyone, quick question.... If I start out of SFO on July 13th at a GS-7, when would I hit GS-9? 11? 12?
                          Some BP and CBP are saying it would be by 8 months, some say a year.... What do you guys say?

                            It's a year from EOD date. So 7/13/17 you will be a gs 11 for example
