      They have TV's in all the on site dorms. About two months ago buildings 95/96 got nice new flat screen Samsung Smart TV. IF the other buildings didn't follow suit they will have some 15 inch basic flat screens.

      Give him a call, it wouldn't hurt. Your credit report more than likely was run already. Did you had issue with your credits? If so he probably wants to go over it. As for your references, other BIs might interview them if they aren't in town.
      Not to break your heart but the BI isn't as long as the wait for it to be adjucated. You typically will wait many months before hearing back if it's adjucated favorable/negative.

  • Ayeeee, 18-8, my medical finally cleared after all the back and forth like 3 times on additional info and va doc sign offs and etc. A lady i talked to before from opr called me today on a Saturday just to give me that info. So i guess now the waiting game for either the background investigator visit and polygraph schedule. Not sure which comes 1st and how long after medical is cleared but i will say once i did my bpa 19-5 app in March 2019 its pushing things through fast for my cbpo app i did june 2018. Any one knows how long for the next email or call for the background/ polygraph part

      Hopefully stuff stay moving fast, since i added my bpa vra app back in march, and selecting a south border area. Banking on bpa to get things rolling

  • Can anyone give me an idea on how strict they are when the BI runs a credit report on you? Is it about the score or how much debt you owe?

      Bam2323, my BI questioned me about a student loan that shows that I was 30 days delinquent on 3 different occasions.... and this is after he, prefaced it with "I know it's completely paid off now, but..."

      So they seemed more concerned with delinquencies. But he did have a copy of my credit report in front of him. But it went smoothly otherwise.

      Hou33guy - They will say something about it if it is delinquent.. as long as you are making payments on that charged off card, you're good to go. As Talonderiel hinted at, they really only care about delinquencies more than dollar amount.. if you have even an 8 dollar delinquent debt, they are going to question you about how/why that occurred.

  • Hello,
    Is there anybody here from the NYC area that knows how the CBPO salary compares to NYPD? Do they start off the same and who can make more?

      Interesting. What do you mean by outside work are you referring to a 2nd job moonlighting as in security or loss prevention ?

    • merlin436
      merlin436 commented
      Editing a comment
      Any second job.

      CBP will expect you to be available, pretty much at their whim...especially in a port like JFK that offers plenty of overtime opportunities.

      Security and loss prevention jobs will further complicate things...the closer the nexus of the second job to cbp work...the less likely it will be approved.

    • Mike_lowrey
      Mike_lowrey commented

      Possibly the base salary is the same but I’m guessing jfk would offer more in salary due to the overtime

    • merlin436
      merlin436 commented
      Editing a comment
      From what I've read...base pay at the 5.5 year level is basically the same and the starting pay for entry level is a bit more for NYPD...assuming one starts working for CBP as a GS-05.

      As far as overtime goes, once the academy/post-academy training winds up and a person gets released from training restrictions, making close to that 45K cap specific to JFK probably wouldn't be all that difficult. It likely means working a large percentage of midnights, Sundays and holidays as well as overtime though.

  • Just a follow up...

    EOD JFK 9/27
    FLETC 10/17 - 3/2

    Anyone else with similar dates?

      What sea/air ports were all available when they called you ? HillbillyKY

  • Current CBPO's, if any of you have worked at both a sea port and an air port (or either really) could you offer some insight into the different things you can be assigned to do at each? Is there any difference? Which do you prefer?

      Depend on your announcement, if you are DH, you are going to SWB locations, if you are a Regular, you have more choices, pretty much where ever opens right now, even if the desired location is not on your announcement, you can still ask them, if you are a VRA, you pretty can go where ever you want.

  • Update on Vision - 19-1 CBPO REG HIRE Currently 38%

    So I'm 20/400 uncorrected and 20/20 with glasses/contacts. The application says they're looking for 20/100 or better uncorrected and therefore they've disqualified candidates due to that alone. Not all applicants get disqualified apparently but there's definitely a possibility of the disqualification.

    Being proactive, I'm getting Lasik done. The consultation is this Wednesday. I left a voicemail on the CBP Medical line and they contacted me today. The nurse said that they have updated my file that I am getting Lasik and they are asking for the date of the surgery and will accept an updated vision exam 90 days after that date.

    It may delay my process a little but I'm still at 38% and not disqualified so I'm happy that I'm still in the running.

    I know the medical won't clear until the vision gets done so in the meantime I'm waiting for the Poly.

    I've read on this forum that the general consensus is that they don't move to Poly until Medical is green.

    So we'll see what happens. (No pun intended)

  • Not gonna lie... feeling a bit sick right now... got the final call for a gs7 position in Laredo. EOD Nov and Academy start November. I turned it down.

    I've been selected for the 19-9 gs9 application and finished onboard paperwork July 3rd. TSU said they couldnt see it though. Hopefully it is processed quickly. :/

      Ouch...yeah, that would've been tough but it sounds like it was the right call. You should never settle especially after such a long process. Go for the GS-9 and hopefully they won't take too much longer.

      2ndGenFed, thank you! I have that GS9 at the Hiring Center and a 4th MIA application awaiting to close.... this time with a 15 page federal resume smoothed over from a veteran's hiring organization. So we shall see.

      I just feel bad turning down a job. I'm probably going to have to do the same to the Local PD that I'm in the hiring process with, who will sponsor me through the academy. But the starting pay as a GS9 is higher, the fed leo is a different kind of demanding, and within 3 years with CBP, I'll be making more than the local PD could pay me as a LT.

      Adulting is tougher than it seemed when I was younger. :P

  • Saw on The news the new announcement for Philadelphia based CBP officers but can’t seem to find anywhere to apply for it. Does anyone know where to look as i don’t see it usajob.
