    Depends on the locality pay. I know the gs-5 for detroit area last year was $31,000 give or take. Im sure cali gets more but dont know if its that much more. You may have been looking at step 10 or something instead of step 1.

          You're looking at $32,898 to start from what I see. $40,570 is the pay for step 8, but we will get paid at step 1 only.

            Actually one year from the day you EOD and start pre-academy. Better yet.

                As many CBPOs have said (namely Merlin), this is all contingent on what location you go to. Not all locations have a ton of overtime to give out.

                  He is going to LA. Tons of OT. He will get more then 15k! The night,evening,Sun and holiday pay alone will be more then 5k.

                  I have worked at 4 ports, I also know a little bit about it.

I understand it's shift work, so do you get a weekly schedule or how does it work? Now say you have a day off and you make plans that day, appointments, what not etc.., will they tell you the day before your day off and say you need to work for 10 hours on your day off?

                      Say I work a lot of overtime for like 3 weeks straight and the next week I don't want it, and want like 2 days off to go hunt or something. Is this reasonable within this agency, or do you hardly get anytime to really do much when your off duty? Can you also switch shifts with other cbpo here and there to better accommodate each others schedules?

                      OT can be forced. Most ports will try to let you know as far in advance as possible. Sometimes that's a couple of days, sometimes it's an hour. At the two ports I have worked at, you can request and OT excusal, or an excusal from being ordered for OT. You getting approved for it though is based on the needs of your port and on how many other people have put in for excusals. As for switching shifts, again, that's dependant on your port. Both ports I have worked at have allowed shift swapping as long as both parties agree.

                        EOD is just your employment start date. It's not an actual shift or anything.

                        • Called TSU to see where my app stands. Basically CBPO doesn't have any vacancies of today, but as I'm sure everyone will agree with me, that's only today. Things change. C'est la vie, right?

                          BPA is looking at a 45 day lead time in TSU at LEAST for CA locations. It would seem that the resources are shifting a bit from CA to AZ (which makes a lot of sense). So I guess I have a longer wait ahead of me. She also instructed me on how it works for when you have two apps in TSU, and if one calls and you accept, they typically will NOT call you until you're out of the academy. Which I found to be interesting.

                          Anywho, I'm thankful I get to spend Christmas with the family. Good luck to all of the EODers out there!

                            Yes, you are correct.

                              Dude!
                              I though you said you had read through the thread... you sure are making lots of already answered 100 times already questions!....
                              If you're looking to get OT work, try to get LAX when you get the call... you need to understand that this is LE which most of the OT will be mandatory, and being the new guy and all, will get you stuck with all the worst time shifts, and extended time shifts, and not many days off at all... You want a regular 9-5 pick Long Beach, everything runs in a pretty predictable schedule there, and not so much OT work opportunities.
                              EOD is the day you report to your port for Pre Academy training, you dress business casual, and you get paid for this... As stated previously you will get paid on the first day you EOD and exactly one year later you go from a GS-5 to a GS-7, up until you hit GS-11.

                                No need to apologize Hunter,
                                It just seems like you're excited and in a frantic search for all the questions that are popping up in your head, about the job and everything to do with it.
                                Just take a deep breath man......do a bit of searching if you feel like it, or just do a jump of 30-40 pages back and give it a good read... I'm sure you'll find some more answers by skimming through old posts here...
