      Fonzi I originally picked swb and it didn't move any quicker. 18 months before I heard anything. Now I'm regular announcement but not for swb so we will see what happens. Seems steps may be taking longer. Still waiting for eqip to get to opr. It's been over two weeks and nothing. Hrm is reviewing but last time only took 5 days. Seems odd on whats going on over there. Short staff maybe?

      Congrats to getting through the process quickly. I guess it all depends where you are applying to. It seems the Northeast has less hiring needs for the moment but hopefully it will move along.

  • Safranco2 I was 18-7 and 19-3. Got hired off the 19-3. I reapplied once areas off the southern border were open. My process was nearly 2 years but it was bc I initially had to put things on hold bc I was at fletc for another job. Once I finished that I started the process again. I am going on provisional as well. Going to Baltimore 10/28. Hoping to put in a transfer to FL as soon as i can.

      • Well guys, I wanted to share a little bit of my story because even though live not always ends up the way we want it, I truly think that things happens for a reason and it doesn’t mean that one should give up. With failure comes knowledge and is through those adversities that we will succeed!
        I applied back in 2016, late 2015 to be specific, and after two polygraphs (both inconclusive) I was kicked out :-0 Back then the age limit was 37yrs and it was my only shot to become a CBP Officer. After that, I was miserable, I had prepared myself to start this career, finishing a BA and a MA as fast as possible to make the cut, hit the gym etc etc. I was so ready! Then around 2018 I found out CBP was hiring and had extended the age to 40. I applied once again, 18-11 announcement, and every single day I dreaded the polygraph! It meant a lot to me because I felt it was unfair not passing it back in 2015. I was a nerve wreck and I had put so much into “getting me ready” and honestly my record is as clean as can be. About a month ago I received an email to take it and after 8 hours of testing I was told that I might require to retest. I agreed with no objection and again I went for my 4th (in total). Received a call and this time was 6hrs of testing. I always felt positive, optimistic and nervous. This time was going to be my last, I am 39, and there wasn’t going to be any more chances. I believe my examiner understood how important this was to me. I put my life on hold “literally” from having kids, travelling abroad, living in the same address for over a decade just to avoid complicating things. I was just nervous, more like my breathing type of thing, body language wise I was calm. The examiner advised me that QC will review everything and that I would hear soon. Within a week Cass updated with a checkmark! I was the happiest person ever! Hopefully this time will work out, I am not done with the process yet, (recently received an email from the Background Investigator telling me that they were in the process of adjudicating my BC) but I will continue to be optimistic and again, everyone is different, to me this has been an achievement!

          I wish you well and hope it all works out for you. You put off having kids for CBP though? I don't understand that at all.

      • Is anyone on here that has accepted an offer with CBP a current federal employee? If so, did you speak to them about pay matching if you make more than the starting salary for CBP? Ive inquired about the pay from TSU and all I’m getting is that once my SF-75 is sent by my current agency that the Pay Setting Unit will review it. Just hoping to see if anyone has any answers about it. Thanks

          Swsports22 That Is a great question. I would like to know that as well. I currently make more than a 9-1, I'm hoping they will match it, but at the same time I am not going to turn it down either. I'll make it up on the back end.

          I wonder this as well. Currently on a Ws pay scale for Leo's. Currently equalivent in pay to something like a gs12. Wonder if I could start as a 9 step 10

      • Has anyone seen Trumps new proposal to reorganize or even shut down opm? Just curious as to how this would affect us. I guess he is trying to move the duties to dod and gas. Any thoughts on this? Is it a plus or a negative? I guess the issue is hiring, severely breaches among others.

          Well seeing that people have been waiting over a year for a Polly I don’t think it would make things any more horrible and outrageous. They should just fire all the people that do the hiring for this circus

          Who knows?

          Other agencies will pick up those duties, when needed.

          Specifically to CBP/OFO...I've always thought that we should run our own hiring...and do it locally.

          FWIW, signs point to OFO needing 1200 additional CBPOs in FY2020 and an additional 600 CBPOs each following year until FY25(3000 more in total). That doesn't figure in the thousands of CBPOs lost in attrition over those years.

          So...hiring numbers ought to be good...regardless of who's running the hiring show.

          Just curious as to whether the hiring process would change or not. If they would keep the flow, change hiring standards. Curiosity that's all.

          CBP Officer Qualifications for the GS-9:
          There are three (3) ways to qualify for the CBP Officer position at the GS-9 grade level: specialized experience, graduate education, or combination of specialized experience.

          1. Specialized Experience for CBPO GS-9

          One year of specialized work experience that demonstrates the ability to:

          Make rapid, accurate judgments and decisions with respect to the application of the regulations, instructions, and procedures for importing and exporting merchandise to and from the United States, or
          Enforcement and administration of laws relating to the right of persons to enter, reside in, or depart from the United States

          2. Or Graduate Education for CBPO GS-9

          Two full years of graduate level education in a field of study related to law enforcement (or expect to complete within 9 months from the closing date of the announcement) (e.g., criminology, criminal justice, law enforcement, courts and judicial systems, corrections and rehabilitation, justice studies, homeland security, forensic technology and forensic psychology) at an accredited or pre-accredited college or university.

          3. Or Combination of Specialized Experience and Graduate Education for GS-9

          A combination of graduate level education completed in a field of study related to law enforcement (e.g., criminology, criminal justice, law enforcement, courts and judicial systems, corrections and rehabilitation, justice studies, homeland security, forensic technology and forensic psychology) at an accredited or pre-accredited college or university AND specialized work experience. This will be calculated using your resume and official or unofficial transcripts submitted with your application.

          I'd say no - but you could always try and they reject it

          No use in contacting them since you’ll get a voicemail every time you call them and a generic email every time you email them. I’ve been contacting them every week.
