    • @ JPOL Congrats for moving along the process for CBP I don’t think you are required to take the PFT2 test unless you are in 17-3 announcements but either way you are closer to the EOD.

      • Hi all. Due to Nogales in April and have a bunch of questions if anyone is available to answer them, any help would be appreciated. Mostly general questions about transporting to academy, specifics of academy, and if any has any tips on where to live and other aspects of being in nogales. Thanks in advance!

          Standard travel to/from the academy is by air...excepting local travel.

          If it is possible it is advisable to arrange to drive yourself so that you'll have a vehicle available for personal use. Also, if you drive yourself, you can pretty much bring along whatever comfort items you want to FLETC.

          Seems like they are pushing people through. In a weeks time, I was called, scheduled, verbally passed, and officially passed (18-10).

      • Howdy ya'll!!

        Been following for a long while, but figured it was time to throw my information in here. Hoping to share any info. I had applied to BPA 16-7, CPBO 16-8, and MIA 19-3.

        To be fair to CBP, the 16-X applications were put on hold due to a 3 year military recall. Started the process back in October 2018 and was flying through till the shutdown.

        Also waiting on the referral list for MIA 19-3 to be generated (shut down delayed everything).

        CBPO (44%)
        Eqip: done
        PFT1: 11/08/2018
        Medical: 10/30/2018

        Medical: 10/30/2018

        Poly: not scheduled

        MIA (waiting on referral)

        Poly: 4/15/2019
        Poly 2: 5/22/2019
        Poly 2 Check: 5/30/2019

        PFT2: 06/26/2019
        Final Call: 07/08/2019 **turned down for GS9 announcement**

        CBPO 19-9 (50%)
        Referred: 07/03/2019
        Eqip / Medical / SI / Poly check: 07/09/2019

            OFO is the office within CBP that virtually all CBPOs work out of.

            Not everyone who works in OFO is a CBPO...but the vast majority of OFO are CBPOs.

            Do you get a choice if you get employed as a CBP?

            Customs and Border Protection Officer(CBPO) is the job. CBPOs generally work out of Ports of Entry(POEs). Most Ports of Entry are either land border ports, airports or seaports. Office of Field Operations(OFO) is a subdivision of Customs and Border Protection(CBP) that largely deals with ports, customs and immigration at legitimate crossings. Office of Border Patrol(OBP) is the Office that Border Patrol falls under. Most Border Patrol employees are Border Patrol Agents(BPAs). Border Patrol usually work between land border POEs pretty much exclusively dealing with non-legitimate border traffic.

        • So the OFO/ Office of Field Operations is the department within CBP that Officers work out of. Border Patrol Agents are classified differently and their hiring announcements will denote BPA/Agent instead of OFO/Officer

              LMC once was a typo on an address for a school. The second one was a misunderstanding (I didn’t know a place of birth for a relative and had no way of finding out), my case manager just didn’t read the explanation. The third time was a total mistake, my case manager was apparently letting an intern work on my file and they rejected it to me by accident.

          • Hi is anyone in 19-2 CBPO for JFK. I am reaching out to see if anyone that is in this announcement. I have completed fitness PFT1 and was wondering how long after will I receive notification for the SI. Also I selected JFK is that where the interview will be held. It will be greatly appreciated if anyone can inform me about my concerns.

            Thank you have a great day

            • Hi all, 19-2 applicant here.

              I was wondering if there is preferential selection during hiring process. If so, do any of you know of how it works? I'm trying to figure out how/why people's timelines are so inconsistent. Probably futile, but fun to entertain. Per CBP's job announcement:


              If you pass the entrance exam and meet minimum qualifications, you will be placed in one of the following categories for referral and consideration:

              Best Qualified: Applicants possessing the type and quality of experience that substantially exceeds the minimum qualifications.
              Very Highly Qualified: Applicants possessing the type and quality of experience that exceeds, to a very considerable extent, the minimum qualifications.
              Highly Qualified: Applicants possessing the type and quality of experience that exceeds, to a considerable extent, the minimum qualifications.
              Well Qualified: Applicants possessing the type and quality of experience that marginally exceeds the minimum qualifications of the position and who demonstrate average proficiency in most of the critical competencies.
              Qualified: Applicants possessing the type and quality of experience that meets the minimum qualifications.


              Do you remember how you were categorized? You should have seen it after your exam NOR.

              P.S.

              I've been noticing some applicants (19-X +) that have similar (expedited?) timelines as me. Within 2 months of exam NOR, I've completed (not cleared) everything up until the poly, BI and drug exam. Seems like it's hurry up and wait until you hit the waiting wall for the poly.
