    Under the most recent announcements there's been a push on to only place new hires into ports that have greater opportunities to to train new hires and give them more, varied experiences.
    On top of that, there's also a greater push to allow current officers to move into ports of their choosing.

    With both in mind, direct hiring in certain ports will probably become rarer. Especially the smaller and more desirable ports.
    Thanks merlin, that was something I was really curious about. Certain airports appear 3-4 times per year on usajobs, and others never seem to be available.

          How long was your application process so far? When did you apply? What location did you apply?

            Have been for a long time. I was thinking about going somewhere else, but I'm so close.

              I feel the exact same way. Too close

                You also have to realize that not all ports are equals.

                Some are ore pretty much ports in name only. Others see so little work that they are staffed from somewhere else and CBPOs stationed at another port drive in to handle the odd job there.

                Even with the ports that are fully staffed range from one, two or three CBPO staffing the port up to the 1200 plus that's at JFK.

                It's quite possible that the airports you're looking at only have a few Officers to maybe a couple of dozen CBPOs staffing the place.

                Those smaller and less significant ports might not hire outside often even under the most fortuitous of circumstances

                • That's something I definitely didn't consider. The busiest International Airports in the US in order are JFK, Miami, LAX, Newark, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Houston, Dulles, and Dallas.

                  That explains a lot, thanks again.

                          I was told on the spot. They said that even though they had a few doubts about my honesty and integrity, I still passed.

                            Yeah, mine was similar. I was told that I was holding back throughout the interview but a few hours later I got the email with a positive results on the interview.
