    Question I have is I applied to Highgate Springs, VT should I re-apply to a southern port for a better chance to get hired if I pass everything or stick to my port I picked already?

    I would like to stay in NY but I figured I could work 1-2 years elsewhere and transfer to JFK or something closer to home.
    Realistically, it's more likely that you will be working 3-5 years elsewhere before you'll manage to arrange to get close to where you want.

    • CBP class 411 go to the academy next week. 412 go to the academy the first week of November so if anyone is in the process now and pass everything you will most likely be in the next class 413.

      I really need to decide if I want to take this preclearance or not. I just finished my poly today and the examiner said I passed but got to wait for quality control to pass me.

      So what are the chances of getting a overseas spot after working for CBP for a few years. I am seeing spots all over the world and wonder if overseas is a popular assignment people go for.

      Seeing a lot of Container Security jobs. I am taking a guess and you are just doing a ton of searches on containers. Sounds like fun to me.

        • I made it to the medical a few months ago (written passed in Jan) but had to drop out due to military commitment, reapplied today and had to schedule the written test again... I thought it was good for a year??

            Fairly certain a lot of those are career level ranks, like 15-25 years in.
            EDIT: The 12s overseas are hard to come by. Someone in my building just left for the Netherlands though, so that is pretty sweet. They opened a bunch of GS12s overseas recently though. That is one thing I wish BP had more of, and one of the few things I am jelly of Customs. Definitely a cool experience.

            • A few quick questions for those in the know.

              Is it true they got rid of the stupid video test?

              I see they lifted the age requirements a bit but I can't work in these middle of nowhere places.( I don't mind, but the wife and newborn aren't having it). Any chance the next posting might be for something more metropolitan like PHL? Any word on how long the age lift might last for?

              If not, realistically speaking how long/hard is it to eventually transfer to PHL/JFK/LGA/EWR?

                I believe the only interview is the panel now. If you have worked in any law enforcement job before this you will be fine in the interview.

                    The,video based testing is gone...until they decide to bring it back...if they so choose. The age waiver has been stated as being temporary. How temporary? I'm imagining that it'll last through these latest rounds of,hard-to-fill ports and probably until they get a good handle on the thousands of additional positions they've needed to fill that have been awaiting for years.is.

                    Movement is possible. It's probably easier to transfer/relocate now than it has ever been. Still, if you're for a particular port or handful of ports you're probably better off waiting, especially if the family isn't behind a move to the hinterland. It used to be that somewhere in the 3-5 year range to relocate was usually a realistic number. For many, especially for those filling these most recent grouping of less desirable ports, I'd bet that figure still holds true for them. As to when ports like Philadelphia will open up...probably not long after they fill most of the current offerings and any other priority placements that may be awaiting in the queue.

                    Announcements are supposed to open on the first of each month...at least as of now. Check monthly to see what options might change.

                    • I had a quick question for anyone that can help.

                      I passed my SI on August 23th. August 29th I got an email from the Personal security specialist to send in my signed MEL release form. I did that the same day. Now it's been 2 months and I haven't heard anything from them. My Cass says my paperwork is at the security office...

                      Anyone know what could the holdup be?

                      Can anyone give me a number I can call for any information regarding my application status?

                      Thanks in advance

                        Background Investigations are always all over the place. Some can take a few months and others can take over a year to get done. Just depends on who your investigator is. I still haven't talked top my investigator as of right now.

                            Welcome to the feds, Hurry up and wait.

                            Its been over a month since I did my medical and nothing has updated. I wouldn't worry ab out it if you already did the medical testing. If they didn't schedule your stuff I would start to worry.
