      The job announcement said that hiring events were already scheduled at certain bases and if you choose them they would be a two day event. Bragg and Cambell were closest to me.

        Not all men can be U.S. Marines that is why there is the Army, Navy and Air Force.

            Personally, I wouldn't count on any location being easy/quick to relocate from/to.

            You can pretty much attempt a transfer from day one. How successful a non-academy graduate, probationary employee would be in selling a transfer...and how many avenues actually would be open that early in a career...that makes the likely practical outcome challenging, IMO.

            • Assuming that CBP has similar rules to the Fed agency I work for, I would expect something like this, in order to transfer you must have been in your current position 1 year, wherever you want to go must be accepting transfers, you must have no disciplinary actions etc. If no current CBP chime in with specifics I'll talk to someone I know that is familiar with CBP workings.

                That probably holds true for a voluntary reassignment around the agency these days.

                Really, it depends on how one defines a "transfer".
                They've been approving one-on-one swaps at the academy recently. Some of the recent laterals require one to have reached journeyman status...and some do not. Most, if not all, of the
                out-of-country and specialty positions will likely require one to be a GS-12 as well.

                Then there's the NROB national relocation program. I'm not sure their minimums, but it's largely seniority driven. As of today, I've yet to met a successful NROBer. For some though, it's a workable option.

                  • Anyone know what the typical work schedule/hours are at the airports? Is overtime mandatory?

                    Comment


                    • Depends on the airport, they all have different operating hours. If there are other volunteers for OT then it's not mandatory but you will find yourself being drafted for OT even if you don't want it at times.

                        With the 65% failure rate for the polygraph I would focus more on NYPD..

                          I was contacted today to complete the "provisional clearance" form. Is this a regular part of everyone's' process? Just curious!

                            Preclearance is a normal thing for any federal job.

                          Yes this is normal for any job that requires a clearance to work for them.

                          Basically you do your EQIP to start the investigation. They will also send you a form to fill out if you want to get hired on a preclearance which basically means they will hire you before your background is done which increases the speed to get hired since the backgrounds can take months to get finished.

                          You have two options. To get hired with a preclearance which will get you a job faster but you run the risk of your background not passing and you will be fired when that happens. The second option is to opt-out of the preclearance and have to wait till your background is completed and then they will give you a job offer. This choice is the safer route if you are not in a rush to get hired.

                          I have seen officers fail their background all the time and get fired even after working for the agency for a year

                            Current state and local law enforcement personnel who have cleared a polygraph test;

                            Federal law enforcement agents who have passed a security background check; and

                            Veterans with three consecutive years in the military who have held a security clearance and passed background checks.https://homeland.house.gov/bill/h-r-2213-anti-border-corruption-reauthorization-act-2017/
                            I got mine waived. I just found put my waiver request was approved. You have to submit the OPR polygragh waiver request form.

                            The current requirments you have to meet are.
                            1. In the past 5 years you have undergone a tier 5 background investigation.
                            2. You currently jold a final top secret security clearance issued without waiver/exception.
                            3. You currently have access to sensitive compartmented information (SCI) wich means you are currently read on.
                            4. You qualify as a veteran.

                            Thats directly from the form amd as far as i know the only current way to bypass the poly

                          • I did the preclearance route and when I met with my BI for that step he said that he had to have everything done in 2 weeks and submitted there really trying to move people through quick
