      HHIsland I believe they are promoting a big incentive for San.Francisco

      If money is what interests you, those incentive pay locations only pay incentives for three years. Many of them, especially with regards to the rural ones, don't exactly offer much opportunity to earn top dollar amounts over a career in a more normalized setting.

      If you're chasing cash, generally bigger ports are better, southern ports are better, and land border ports usually top the list. If you're comparing a northern border incentive port( like Massena, Jackman, etc.) to JFK, I'd fully expect the potential career earnings in JFK to far exceed that found in Massena and similar incentive ports.

      merlin436 thank you very much for the info, definitely considering it all, I was thinking of switching from SWB to Chicago. Closer to home and no need for big moving expenses.

      solo1 yeah SF would be nice, the COL is crazy though even with the incentive

  • If you are in FLETC during the Holidays are you given the day off if the holiday lands during the week?

      Yes. Sometimes, when the President feels generous, he'll even give off Monday/Friday when a holiday falls on a Tuesday/Thursday.

  • Did anyone have the experiences to contact the hiring center regarding to your Grade Level? For example, based on the description of CBP website, if your experiences and education make you qualify for G-7, then the TSL only notifies you as G-5, do you guys negotiate with them about the Grade Level? Who should I contact to?

      As far as I understand. When you apply for an announcement that says for gs5 or gs7. When you submit your application you put qualifications and then take exam. When you get your nor it says you have a passing score and it shows for both gs5 and gs7 if your qualified. If your qualified for just gs5, it will just show that. That is how my recruiter explained to me.

      Hi Hal29, thanks a lot. On my NOR, it shows for both gs5 and gs7, however, on my TS letter, it only shows GS5. That's why I think maybe I should contact with them to verify this.

      Just got the same thing I emailed them and then I saw another post that it was just a glitch.

  • So I got the email saying I passed my polygraph last Tuesday. CASS updated, green on the polygraph checkmark, status at 63%. Today I check my CASS and all of a sudden it's back down to 50%, the checkmark on the poly portion is now pending? Any insight?

        solo1, Medical sent me an email a few days after my exam and asked, "What knee did you sprain? Did you wear your glasses for your exam?"
        I emailed them back and it cleared the following day!

        I got a similar email regarding my wrist asking which wrist I hurt... replied back it was my right and then never heard anything for 3 months then they asked for additional info. Injury is years old and healed with no issues... just think it is so inconsistent from applicant to applicant. And I’m currently working in law enforcement so obviously I can perform physical duties. I just don’t get it.

        I’ve read other posts where after meeting the BI maybe a week or 2 after they get contacted again. I don’t have an extensive background. Was also told every person is different depending on their background.

        Just met my case manager once, did call a couple of times to verify some info. I have a clean background and it took about 3 1/2 months to complete and recieve a suitable decision.

    • I got my passed from Polygraph on August 26th. Today got an email that BI manager has changed, assigned a new one and another email about recertification of e-QIP this morning. Literally got everything updated and sent back to my BI along with new provisional and residency form to submit. Just got another email that my e-QIP has been released to OPR for review. How long did it take for you to hear about the recertification process or if the provisional is granted? At this point, just need to complete the drug test?

      • Well, today marks a cool 90 days since passing my SI, still not a peep on getting my poly scheduled, or my medical clearance.

        I’m at 214 days since applying so far, still only at 38% complete. What’s most frustrating is I originally applied to a Direct Hire bid because it was supposed to be “faster.” What a joke that is.

          Im at 50% in my CASS. from the looks of it ill be waiting a few more months.

      • Do I need to reapply the new announcement if I find the listed locations are where I want to go? or it doesn't matter since they will provide you the options once you finish the whole process?

          Be careful, new CBP rule, (test scores prior Aug 5 2018 are no longer valid). So you may need to retake exam if you apply new announcement. Talk to recruiter just in case....

          I didn’t see what you deleted, but I noticed your background cleared recently. I had my meeting with my investigator early May, and he said he submitted everything about 2 weeks after that. I’m just curious if you tried to contact the investigator back, or if you reached out to your case manager while it was in progres. I ask because I EOD in 2 weeks and it’s still pending.

      • hi, does anyone knows when do you recieve any kind of confirmation email after you accept a location and cass hits 100%?

          3 Months or more... I am okay with that. Let's me enjoy my promotion a little longer.


          Border Patrol Agent Fitness Pass 8/1/2018 - That was a lot of fun.

          Border Patrol Agent Medical Further Evaluation 8/13/2018 - That was just the vision, hearing, and hemorrhoids check. hemorrhoids check was a surprise. So if you go for you 1st medical check make sure they do that check. A lot of people are getting sent back for that check. If they do not check for it, it will delay your process.

          Border Patrol Agent (SI) - 8/16/2018 - Passed 'Nuff said!

          There are a few subtle differences mostly having to deal with people hired prior to 2008...but for a new hire, it would essentially be identical to BP retirement. The major difference would probably be how overtime is credited as retirement creditable within the BP versus how overtime is credited within OFO. The BP has a much more lucrative overtime setup.

          @merlim436
          Thanks for that! So all I know is how miltary retirement works.. 2.5% every year... After 20 you get 50% of your top 3 years of pay.... Is it similar for CBP?

          It's 1.7 percent for the first 20 years and 1 percent for any additional year. Retirement at 20 years after age 50 or anytime after 25 years. On top of the pension there is also Social Security and TSP. TSP is where the smart man makes his money. Invest well there and in 20 years retire as a millionaire.
