  • I live in the dfw area, did my si there as well. My mother-in-law worked dfw for 18 years. I wouldn't mind working there as it would be an easy commute and would save on cost for eod. But honestly would love Arizona for the change in scenery. Plus I think you get paid more with the incentive I az so Im very torn between the two. Very torn.

      Hal,

      You seem to want to chase money and excitement.

      Most of that, to the extent that OFO has any, is on the southern border. Major airports usually have the money...but the cost will be monotonous work. Most other ports, like your Montana ports, won't be killing it in either making money or doing much of any real interest.

      Making money. Well I want to make money yes, but what I want to be around an environment that interest our hobbies. As for job excitement? I just want to be hands on. If airports offer more than just stamping passports it might be the way I go. I love the dfw area but it lacks things to do. But I'm thinking if the money is better and not getting over worked. It may be the better route for the family. We can always explore. Then if I want a change over time. Like you said it is easier than be stuck at say Nogales. I'm leaning towards airport right now. But who knows whether it will even be offered. We will see when the time comes.

      Thanks

      douglasgene1 ok so I am at 60% and have degenerative disc disease along with sciatica. So I would basically go to a NON-VA doc, have them clear me and thats it? I didnt have to type anything when I got out. In fact, I got my rating about 3 years from my date of separation. I never got checked out when I was in service (Not that I know of) so I will not have any papers from when I was active duty. How long was medical process for you from start to finish?

      Ya i went to to the regular doctor and had them fill out the paperwork they sent me.
      just get a copy of the VA rating sheet they send you every year, you can also go to the ebenefits page sign in go to the compensation page and print it out.

      10/4/2017 my 1st medical for DHS
      11/15/2017 DHS emailed me back stating they needed more info
      01/02/2018 DHS sent me papers to see doctors and get filled out
      01/12/2018 received documents
      03/2/2018 additional paperwork needed
      03/10/2018 received documents
      05/17/2018 additional paperwork needed
      05/24/2018 received paperwork
      07/13/2018 medical cleared

      This was a very long process for me on the medical, after the medical i had a Poly on 07/30/2018, passed and now im in the background phase.

      once you get passed the medical phase it goes by quicker for sure. Ive seen people on here do the polygraph before the medical cleared but idk how to stream line anything. I get that DHS wants you to pass all the medical so they arent held liable, however at the end of the day they have hundreds of people doing their own thing in the hiring process so you never know how long the process is. The process wont get any better with all the hiring expos.

  • 18-11.. Passed my fitness but my medical is on further evulation according to the eas website since mid september. Why doesn’t my app show anything ?

        douglasgene1 the one that states your application is with the training and scheduling unit.

        "Congratulations! You have been referred to the Training and Scheduling Unit. Once we reach your name and have an available vacancy we will contact you. The offer is based on operational need determined by the Agency. After a review of your file it was determined you are missing the following forms."

        Why did you turn the academy dates down? And, now that you applied for 19-1, does it start your whole process over?

    • Finally got the call for Polygraph today 10/02/18, unfortunately i'm in the process of moving from VA to AZ and they scheduled me in D.C for the testing dates after i'll have moved across the country. I emailed my case manager about this move a month ago and told him the circumstances and dates involved, but it didn't make much difference evidently. The Poly scheduler heard my situation, thanked me for the prompt response and said she will forward my assessment to AZ and that I would have to wait for them to contact me now. At this point I hope I didn't just back seat myself for another 4 months.

        sadly that is not an option in my situation, I wish it was but given the expense of a cross country move and relocation costs I'll have to continue to wait.

        Have you taken your poly already? They told me people can’t continue with any part of the process until medical is 100% clear. It’s annoying how inconsistent this process is from one person to the next. Something tells me they pull half of these “policies” out of thin air.

    • 18-11.. But reapplied for 19-1 ( Queens )

      There’s not way to switch locations if i was to finish my 18-11? No one ever had the chance to ?

        Hal29 negotiable within the southern border lol.. I've completed all the steps.. just waiting on the call for my DH 18-7 announcement, I'll ask for the newly posted JFK in 19-1 to try my luck.. i'm looking at it as wouldnt they just rather place a person somewhere of their choice (if it's available) than to not give them at all? Wasted time and money on the agency's part. but thats just my opinion.

        @ moby if you only have DH application going on then they will not offer you JFK. But I seen strange things happened and they might give it to you. Or they will tell you to reapply.

        sorry to tell you but one of my friends has been in selective service verification for about 4 months now, just like medical review, any type of "review" takes the super long. he was reaching out all the time and was getting generic responses although the last one that he got was more positive and they told him they were working on him for him to get a waiver so at least he is no just waiting hopelessly now.

        • So if there is a chance to get an airport, that may be what I'm leaning towards the airport. What are the duties of a cbpo in an airport. Is there more than just check I id's and passports?

            Luggage searches, some K9 units if you want that. I'm still an applicant myself, from what I've heard from current CBPOs though is that work at a land border crossing is much exciting/interesting overall when compared to an airport. On the other hand though, airport work is much 'easier' and in a better work environment than at the border. In an airport, you're more like a TSA officer with a gun. It's a very controlled environment and everyone you encounter has already been though some level of security. At the border, you don't know who or what is driving up in a vehicle or walking across the bridge. That's more 'typical' law enforcement work.

            Personally if I had a choice, I would prefer an airport. Being inside a nice air conditioned building all day with plenty of food options and an overall safer environment sounds more appealing than standing out in a little booth in 100+ degree heat breathing in car fumes in the middle of nowhere all day long.
