      • Hey guys, first time poster here in this forum. I have a quick question, how often are announcements available. I see there is one now on Usajobs, but they are all for border posts. How often are NY airports and places in the Northeast available? I am trying to get back east. How much overtime is available at major airports like JFK for example? Also is this a 20 year retirement job?

          Someone can correct me if I am wrong, I believe it's 20 and out if you are 30 or over. 25 yrs of service if younger than 30.

                Lately, announcements have been coming out fairly often, 3,4,5 per year. Historically it's been more along the lines of twice per year. Announcements come out when there is a need for them.

                They've been doing some rather targeted and limited hiring as of late. I imagine that it won't be long before JFK becomes an option again. Same thing with Newark. Agency hiring plans are supposedly moving towards accommodating more employee - friendly location transfers and restricting hiring in ports that have limited resources towards training and work experience for new hires. If you're looking towards picking up an airport spot in places like Albany or Syracuse, it might be becoming an increasingly harder occurrence for a new hire.

                JFK and other large and/or major ports usually see a fair amount of overtime available. Many of the other ports see much less. Overtime is often fickle and untrustworthy, especially in the smaller and less significant ports. It's usually best to plan on living on base pay and viewing overtime funds as a pleasant extra source of temporary income.

                You can opt to retire after 20 years at age 50 or 25 years at any age. New hires will face mandatory retirement at age 57.

                  • Is the entrance exam basically pass/fail? Or does your score have any affect on any part of the process? Better chances of being hired?

                      Tentative Selection Letters are issued based on the test scores. Those with the highest scores receive offers first. Depending on the needs of the agency, those who score lowest may never get an offer.

                            what's considered a "good" score? I got my NOR on Friday, score of 88, which compared to others on this forum is not that great of a score...However, I did apply for a remote position on the northern border, and I assume not too many others would have chosen that location.
                            In addition, how quickly can one relocate to a different location?

                              once you're hired for that location you'll need to wait a year before you can transfer. On top of that there needs to be an opening orrr you need to know someone.

                                A good score is one that'll get a person hired.
                                That score will vary dramatically depending on circumstances. An 88 is likely to be high enough in the majority of situations.

                                How quickly one might relocate is also one of those things that varies dramatically depending on the particulars. Certain ports are far more willing to work towards relocations than others and certain situations are far more likely to lead to relocations than others.

                                Generally speaking, if a person is extremely flexible as to where he is willing to transfer, transfers happen sooner. Those who are picky about locations might wait many years for an opportunity...or they may never see an opportunity open for them.
