        Up to an inch for the officers none for the agents. I believe that is the policy. Must be neat too.. Blacpearl1978

      • When in the academy at what point do they do the physical fitness test with the 1.5 Mile run etc... how many chances do you have to do it and what are the standards?

        Comment


        • I don't feel bad for anyone who can't pass the physical test, it's all on you. The hiring process is long, you have more than enough time to get into decent shape before the academy. Also while at the academy you have time to workout, you are there to study and workout. How you use your time is up to you. Finally, the test isn't difficult, anyone of any age or sex can pass.

          220 yard sprint in 45 seconds.
          Sit and Reach assessment of 12.5 inches.
          24 push-ups in 1 minute.
          1.5 mile run in 15 minutes.

            Additionally, the sit and reach test was recently discontinued.

        • How does the GS pay scale work? I know you begin at what ever you qualify for GS5-9 and so on.
          but what do the steps mean? for example whats is a GS 5 step 3?
          and when do you move up to the next grade? like from GS 5 - GS 6?
          I am confused.
          ***Also for any current offers, when you move from one federal agency to the other, do they match your last salary? or put you in the equivalent pay level?

            The way it works is like this. Depending on where you start, GS5/7/9 you will get promoted every year automatically until you reach GS12. Once you reach GS-12 , then the STEPS come into play. Steps 1-3 is one year between each.

            For example. If you start as GS-7, six years from your first day of employment, you will reach GS12- Step 3. Three years to get from GS7-12 and another three from Step 1 to Step 3. Steps 4-6 is two years between each, so it'll take another six years to reach GS12 step 6.

            Also they skip a grade each time until 12, so progression is {GS-5] - [GS-7] - [GS-9] - [GS-11] - [GS-12].

            Briscora I’m surprised they still had the SI during the shutdown actually. That’s good

        • Ok question y'all. So do to shutdown I've been applying and testing for police departments. So when I handed in my phs on it it says list other police departments and agencies. So I listed cbp. They asked me after testing when I turned it in about applying to cbp, where I am in the process and what I'm waiting on. I told them I'm waiting on final adjudication. Does this hurt or help or neither when applying to p.d. I really want cbp but I'm trying to be proactive. Any help would be appreciated.

            Will they at least interview you? Ask if you would prefer working for their department? I figured it would be a positive. Them seeing that you made it that far would look as a positive outlook on character. So I probably blew my chance I guess. Or am I overlooking it?

        • Hal29, they ask because they don't want to waste the time hiring and training you if you're just going to leave for CBP. The same happened to me but they will wait and see if you get hired by CBP, before they hire you.

          • Got my final selection letter email today! I EOD 2/8 at Dulles, VA and I'll be at FLETC from 2/26-7/1 Class 473! Anyone else around the same dates? It feels so real now that I got the letter!

              Curious when you started the process?

          • Took entrace exam on Jan 3rd.. Been two weeks & still no NOR. Is this because of the shutdown? Or give it another few weeks ?

              Congrats! How did it go? Was your examiner a contractor or did they work for CBP? Any mention of the shutdown at all?

          • JStyleszx , it normally takes 4 to 6 wks before you get your NOR.

            • Does anyone know what the current policy is on tattoos for CBP? Will I just have to wear sleeves? They're already aware of the tattoos I do have, but I have plans for more.

                As long as they are not offensive or gang related you should be good to go.
