  • Hey guys!

    New to the forum but I've worked for the government before for a couple years so not so new there.

    I've recently applied for a CBPO position in Coburn Gore, ME. Announcement #16-8
    I was smoldering if any one on here is currently working there or not? Just looking to get some heads up of what to expect up there.

    I'm currently scheduled for my SI on the 18th of the month and was wondering if it's similar to an Oral Board for a police position or completely different.
    Also do they not do the VBT anymore?

    Thanks for any info!
    Antonio

      To answer your question, yes it is similar to a police oral board panel with three CBP officials, one officer, a supervisor SGT and another LT.

      • I really can't get into specifics though about the interview because of the NDA we had to sign.

        • I understand that. I'm aware of what to expect anyways.

          • My backround check is still ongoing for some reason. I haven't got a check next to it on my CASS. What should I expect after the interview if I pass that?

            • It's a behavioral interview . Google it. Nobody will tell you specific questions, but if you google the type of interview you'll get the point. Good luck. If you have experience it will be easy.

              • Background investigator contacted me today and said he was sending everything in and it looked good.

                Anyone know how long it generally takes once the background packet is submitted by the investigator?

                  • It depends mine took two weeks. Last week it was sent up for review. I had drug test pending alll this week yesterday they scheduled me for a drug test I took it today 8/4/16 and I checked cass this morning saying the investigation was complete and today they called for my offer of employment. So it really depends I applied for Laredo so.. but sometimes cass won't update all mine didn't update to tsu it just stayed green.

                              I see. I thought if ur already a cbpo , u didn't have to apply for the position again in order to transfer to a new port? I guess a transfer request is not enough?

                                Once you are in the SWB it hard to get out. Either you reaply or wait 6 + years for a transfer to go somewhere decent. That won't necessarily would be your home.
