      Being BOP you qualify for their targeting Law Enforcement posting which you need to apply for. They will hire you on as a 9-1 most likely.
      With the 8 I got at rest of the us that would put around a 9 step 6 if I was stepped out on a gs Leo pay scale

        CBP officer blows BOP out of the water in terms of pay. Right now a stepped out officer at gs12-10 will make almost 94k base salary in RUS...In CBP you get your 12 automatically, BOP you need to be a capt or unit manager to go to 12

        obviously it does although going with the ws8 im getting if i transfer back to where im currently stationed or a couple different prisons my base pay will be in the near 90k as a ws8 with nearly unlimited OT potential

        If you can make nearly 90K base pay with the potential of working nearly unlimited OT where you are at...it might be better fiscally for you to stay where you are.

        CBP might meet you in terms of your non-locality base pay rate NOW. I can't see them matching a future raise though.

        Obviously now a future pay rate. But I doubt I'll be super far into the cbp process before I get.my next sf50 at the new duty station. As for the 90k it's definitely doable for the base bit I'll need to lateral back to my current location. Or to a prison in Michigan

    • Received invite for SI this morning (yes on a Sunday) for July 3rd. Obviously, I'll be out of town for the holiday weekend. I replied to the email explaining my situation. Not sure why they'd be interviewing during a holiday period but I guess that's not important. Just curious if anyone has had any luck in rescheduling an interview? The email said they'll reschedule for extenuating circumstances.....just not sure if a vacation is extenuating. Also, is a week the typical notice period for getting an interview date? I'm a 17-6 applicant.

        I am a 17-5 applicant. I received my notice on 06-21 and they have it scheduled for 7-14-2017. So they gave me a little over two week notice. Maybe it depends on where you chose to go for the SI and what their availability is at that particular location.

        I am still trying to find out the places that are on the list to pick from to see if I can find any closer to me. No-one seems to know.

          Dude that's awesome! I'm 17-6 San Ysidro POE and received my SI notice on June 19th for July 17th. July 3rd isn't on the Federal Holiday Schedule so it doesn't surprise me. Good luck getting that changed.

            • Anyone have trouble with having dual citizenships ? I became a US citizen by naturalization. I dont intend to keep my other citizenship but I never thought of renunciation.

              Thanks for any inputs

                Maybe. If it's a country of special interest, a country tied to terrorism that one has citizenship with...it might cause some major problems. If a person holds and travels with a passport from another country...might be a problem.

                Most countries most of the time, it's not a deal breaker. More likely than not, you won't have to actually renounce another citizenship, although they might require you to be willing to formally renounce your other citizenship.. should it be requested.

              • Soo I finally realized yesterday that I wont get a poly waiver without a top secret clearance which is ridiculous to say the least. Im a vet a currently hold a secret clearance but they dont seem to care. Anywas might as well drop the whole process before I go to fake science depression session where the examiner is just going to fail me again

                  I have my Oral with BP on Thursday & my OFO SI next Tuesday. No word on poly yet either. I'm presuming it'll come pretty soon after SI. Also nervous & excited, I just received the email scheduling my BP interview this morning - giving me 3 days notice. Kind of sucks because I have to "think outside the box" to get out of work that day now. Anyway, I'll figure it out. Good luck in your interview tomorrow.

                  Yeah both of the interviews are at the same location - the SD Border Patrol Headquarters. Should be interesting having to show up there twice within a week. I wonder where the polygraphs take place around SD. I guess there's a chance they could be there too. No clue on that though. I've been keeping in touch with a guy who took his SI there around 2 weeks ago & now he has his poly scheduled for 7/18 so it was about 3 weeks after his SI that he'll take the poly. Hoping to follow that timeline too.

              • So I have my SI at the end of next month and the email says attire is business casual, this is a bit odd to me because others have not been this. Have others that have already did theirs dressed the same, I have no qualm but would just like to hear from others. Also some have said varying differences of time length too.

                  Just wear a suit. You will be fine.

                  • I did my fitness test about two weeks ago, and passed. I have heard nothing yet. I have no idea which process I am in either. Ex: 17-4; 17-5. Where do you find that information? And I'm assuming the SI is after the fitness test?

                      They should contact your about scheduling your SI thru email.

                      Check your CSS to see what step you are at in the process. Also you can contact them by email to see what is going on. Their email should be in your emails you been getting from them. They are open to getting emails if you have any questions.
