    • Anyone have their background clear after having to wait many months? I hope my clears soon because I was told "pending adjudication" and get Chicago asap while slots are still open.

        I just got Chicago and it took about 6 weeks after I met my BI to clear and I got it. Also with the expansion of Chicago international terminal it’s actually a high demand. Like not like AZ and CA but I have a friend there and she said they are hurting also Chicago has 2 international Airports

    • If you start at gs5, it would take you 4 years to get to gs12?

      1st year = gs5
      2nd year = gs 7
      3rd year = gs 9
      4th y ear = gs 11
      beginning of 5th year = gs 12?

        @Scrappydoo,

        The even level pay scale grades are not used below the GS-12 level as far as CBPOs go.

    • Meeting with my BI investigator tomorrow. She said it’ll be about an hour. Redoing my medical Tuesday and then all steps will be complete.

        So how did it go? Did you have to do redo all your medical or just an update?

        pnw360 for me I received a text and email about my poly not a phone call. The number that I received the text was from Virginia.

    • For the NY people... I was curious if anyone had insight on JFK. I had my SI ( passed ) but there was no time to ask questions. What shifts / hours are typical. Day to day do cbp officers rotate what their tasks are? Are you in the booth stamping passports one day then roaming the terminal the next?

          Philly is a fairly large port. Newark is much larger than Philly. New hires choose their port before accepting the job. As an applicant, if you want to request Philly/Newark, have at it. At worst they'll tell you no.

      • Few questions for anyone with more experience then I, please:

        1. What is the work life balance like on the job? How many hours do you work per work? 8 or 12 hour shifts? As a new FLETC grad, are you stationed in an airport?
        2. What is FLETC like? What are some of the hardest parts/things to prepare for now? How often are you running? In hindsight, was FLETC fun?
        3. What are some of the specialty units you can apply for after X amount of years of service? Any K-9 or plainclothes opportunities?

        Thank you

          I'll let a recent FLETC grad handle FLETC questions.

          Standard work week is 40 hours. Some ports have plenty of overtime available. Some ports have very little overtime. New hires choose their ports when they accept the employment offer. Some new hires will be going to airports. Much of the answers depend on the port. Some ports have 12 hour shifts, some don't. Again, depending on the port, there maybe specialty units, K9 and plainclothes opportunities available.

          Im not a grad but im in FLETC now. the academics are as hard as you make them ie study habits but plenty of time and extra study opportunities. We dont run very much so it would be good to be able to pass the run and push ups before you get here. if you want to do the job and be here you can do it

      • Hello,

          My first medical was 4/6/17. At that time I had applied for customs and when I got to my SI I was already at FLETC for another federal job. They wouldn’t reschedule it for a date I could make it so I was told to finish fletc and reapply. I did that and everything transferred over to the new application. I just picked up at the SI. Unfortunately, they waited until after I took my drug test to tell me my medical was expired.

          This is the exact wording from CBP;

          Medical exam is valid for 2 years. If the original decision date of your exam was less than 2 years old we would send you the medical self-certification form, but once it passes that mark the exam needs to be repeated.
