  • For anyone who took the border patrol interview, is the interview for customs officer the same? As in scenario type questions.

      co5518 Thank you but do you mean they’re not the same as in not scenario base? More like strengths/weaknesses? It’s really hard to discuss this while not violating nda. But just would like to prepare myself the best I can!

      No they arent, watch law enforcement videos on to threat assessment and control. Then paint a picture to the smallest detail. CBPO was easy, BPA board was intense with the questions. I have had a board with the Texas State Troopers and BPA one topped that one. All and all a great experience. With any board stick with you're answers.

      I tested for both, BP SI is much harder than CBPO.

      Gs5183 they are both scenario based. I actually found the border patrol interview easier

    • Does anyone know when they contact you by phone do they leave a message? I got a miss call which was a 430 area code which is Texas. But when I called it back it said this number is no longer in service. No message either.

        hal same thing happened to me today but it was from a Houston #. I answered and it just hanged up. I called back and it said the number is no longer in service. Not sure if it’s related to what happened to u. I’ve been answering all calls since I read from someone here that they call private etc.

    • Can anyone tell me how the schedule is for jfk. Is it 6 days on 2 days off? Does that mean you always hit overtime ?

        No, you never work more than 5 days in a given week since your days of rotate (Mon, Tue then Tue, Wed etc). I work 6 on, 2 off at my Port currently.

        I’m
        Going to EOD @JFK in the spring so I asked someone who
        Is working there now and they just switched to 5 on two off and 4 on three off. 9 hour shifts

    • Has anyone recently negotiated location, VRA applicant, in the Midwest? Been following thread for a while so familiar with the basic "agency needs" etc. Do not see much on this thread about people negotiating for aforementioned region, let alone specific ports... Apart from critically manned locations like Grand Portage, Pembina etc. Are other ports ever offered?

      Appreciate any insight. Been in the process for about 17 months roughly and it's getting close to the end (knock on wood). Drug test is last step.

        Hal29 I resubmitted E-Qip late September (expired), cleared early November. The biggest setback was medical forgetting to email me reciprocity forms...8 months later I reached a human (lol) contracter who squared away an appointment

    • Just finished my SI and not sure how I did, some of my friends knew they passed right away and got fingerprinted right away. If they didn’t say take my fingerprints does it mean I failed ?

        Usually you will receive NOR the next day Gs5183, I took SI on Fri, and received NOR on Sat. Also, they could take your finger prints there but sometimes they have technical issues, personnel issue and couldn't get your prints , they will send you a package so you can go to local PD and have it done there and send it back to them.

        123456789 Start disputing everything, that's what I did & haven't paid a dime. I cleared about 4-5k in debt from collections in about 6 months. All that's left is a medical bill of $800 & a cable bill of the same price. I disputed the cable bill as well but they want me to go to my local police to file fraud & I'm not willing to do so. I also went & got a secured card through my bank which upped my credit score by over 40 points in the first month.

    • So not entirely CBP related but I just thought I share this.

      I looked at my mail and got a notice for jury duty...on the very first day of EOD/Pre Academy! Funny how things go sometimes.

      Also, does anyone happen to know any good resources where people are going into FLETC around the same time as you? Wouldn’t mind trying to get to know some people before I head out

        Dp23 same thing with me. $800 but electric. I moved out of my apartment in 2014 and electric company kept charging me. I told them electric was suppose to be disconnected. Told the investigator and he said that is fraud. They were running electricity under my name. They are still trying to collect.

        Hal29 Sorry for the late reply & I had one of them as well for $1200. I moved out in August but was still being billed to December. I actually set up a payment arrangement but first I asked they adjust the bill since I had moved out. About a week of back & forth between the leasing office, light place & over the phone with the collection agency they removed the entire balance from my credit after I emailed them copies of a new address during that timeframe. Try that & see if it works in your favor especially if you have another lease at a new address.
