  • Just reapplied for a GS9 CBPO announcement closing at the end of the month. Didn't realize how much my resume changed since the initial start of this process.

    I did see that they are now offering 33%, 25% and 15% incentive pays for certain areas. I might have to reconsider AZ and CA now. And for some reason ME and ND are also on there?! :P

      I've worked in ND.
      In many ways, rural northern border ports are far harder to live/work in than busier southern border ports, larger airports, etc. and most often it's done working at far closer to base salary pay.

      I remember looking at one of the ND Ports back when I applied, the closest Walmart was 2+hrs away! If that doesn't merit incentive pay I don't know what does. Even ME, chances are the little town near the crossing is the only "civilization" for hours.

  • I missed a call from TSU on Friday while at work, they left me a VM with a job offer.
    I have called back over 20 times and left a couple voicemails , I haven’t received a call back yet and it’s Tuesday.
    Any suggestions? I think they would have called back by now?

          Hey CBPO.BPJ, when their reschedule your poly did their tell you the outcome? pass or fail. I am on the same boat, I just have my poly taken last week and to make it short I did well but in the end he said on last part I was concealing something and he told me speak about it. I stayed on my gun since I never had any issues relating to the topics on card. can you elaborate on that rescheduling process bit more. GL

      • Anyone having issues login into usajobs? Just curious.

      • Just wondering what steps are necessary during the whole hiring process if you travel outside of the country for a few days since I know you can’t really put everything on hold during the hiring phase.

          I did many times because the process takes forever

      • I love how Facebook is flooded with adds trying to recruit people to work for CBP... and yet thousands are still waiting in limbo. As many I put down “Location Negotiable” so in theory I could be at the southern border, you would think that makes you more desirable... nope. 11 months and counting since SI. 18-9. If it was a guaranteed job I wouldn’t mind waiting but it’s not. I feel bad for people who just started the process, welcome to the Disney World 4th of July line for Space Mountain with people cutting like crazy.

        • I applied for BPA, do they usually do SI before Fitness? I remember doing Fitness test then SI for CBPO.
          My Fitness says pending (grayed out) but my SI already scheduled for BPA on Cass.
          I also never gotten my test score for the entrance exam but I was selected, offered, and got application ID and all that.
          Is it normal process for BPA?
          Thanks

            V_AntCBP, "normal" is a relative term for this application process..... It seems to change from announcement to annoucement, region to region and even person to person. The good thing is you are seeing movement!

        • Has anyone been through the Academy for this? How is it compared to other academies? Is it like BP academy where is super militarized?

          I’m really interested in applying

            As of July 1, driving is no longer a graded component of the academy. My class and the one after mine are the last to be graded

            Do they still teach some skills, and there is no pass/fail, right?

            The fitness portion will still the same, right?

            Those that are nervous about it, don't be. The academy is to teach / train you on how to do those things and over the 5 months of training, how to be proficient at them. Go into the training optimistic. Don't be a know it all, even if you are an expert and have had the training in the past. You'll be surprised in the amount of people (instructors / other classmates) willing to help you especially if you struggle with one thing or another... Most of all have fun with the training. It's not everyday you get paid to drive fast and shoot guns...

        • So at the PFT2 today, the examiners did say they are having an uptick in people being sent back from the Academy for failing PT standards..... They also mention that some big changes were coming but did not elaborate on what they were (??).

          So I've now officially done everything under the my original app from 15-6..... Now the wait to see if they call me for GS7 or if the GS9 application (closes on the 30th) speeds through the HR department sooner. :P

          I guess I should start asking about locations and lifestyles. lol

            Hopejoy, I'm not sure how much they can ease up for CBPO..... Everyone I've heard from has said that it's not hard there.

            BPA is another story all together..... That one is boot camp style and a gut check from some that I've spoken with.

            The BP is 95% Male, 95% Hispanic/White. They also tend to hire younger people. Further, they find much more merit in culling out applicants in their academy.

            OFO is far more diverse.

            People failing OFO PT standards failed to prepare themselves adequately. There is little likelihood of failure for the person who is in decent shape and is ready physically.

        • I don't know if this was presented in an earlier post but Senator Martha McSally has introduced the bill "S.731- Anti-Border Corruption Improvement Act".

          This bill is aimed at speeding up the hiring process for CBP and would eliminate the polygraph requirement for applicants with LEO and military experience. I've posted the Bill's link that has a progress tracker so you can stay up to date. I'm currently awaiting my poly and it would be nice if they signed this bill into law before they scheduled mine so I can bypass the damn thing. Pass and repost this. Link below

            muleyman0123, that's if they make it retro-active.... Most of the Federal Hiring requirements make what's on the Job Announcement mandatory to be conducted. Unfortunately, I'm a great example. The PFT2 was not required for anyone that did a job application from 17-3 and beyond.

            I just got back from a 3 year recall and CBP restarted me on my original 15-6 and 15-8 applications..... So I had to do the PFT2 test in order to finalize my hiring steps.


            I can see this being the case with the Poly. Any job announcement after the bill is approved and ratified will not require the test, but anything before will probably still have to have it conducted. :\
