    • When you apply for a new announcement, does everything gets transfer automatically ( Equip, Medical ) or do you have to wait for a tentative offer first before everything gets transfer ?

        You wait for your to. Then it transfers in the order it would as if you were just applying. It doesn't all transfer at once.

        My job has been very good to me, despite some USERRA discussions, and they are hurting for bodies as is.... So I let them know as soon as I passed the polygraph for CBP and the Local LEO agency.

        I let them know as soon as I accepted the offer and when the final day of work will be, in or about two weeks prior to EOD based on my PTO balance.

        my employer knew about it when ever since the BI came to interview the managers. So theyve been in the loop. When i got the call, my manager was right next to me. She was just glad that I let her know way ahead of time so that they can plan accordingly.

        I'd burn as much sick & annual time as I have on the books, but I would still give them a full 2-3 weeks prior notice.

              standtheman That's my situation, I got an email from them saying they could waiver me if I'm one year or less since my last military exam results, but I've been out over a year. Guess I'll just laser and wait, thank you.

              19-1 Reg Hire

              I just had Lasik done a few weeks ago on 07/19/2019. I have not been disqualified but I did let them know that I got Lasik done. For me, 10/17/19 will be my 90 days post op and I will be contacting them for any forms for my updated vision test. My CASS shows that the medical is pending but I have not been disqualified. If I do get disqualified, I will simply reapply. That's the plan anyway.

              I asked your exact question to the medical team and they couldn't give me a concrete answer. Apparently, some people get disqualified and some don't. My uncorrected vision was 20/400 so I got mine done.

              Be proactive and get it done if you need it. If you get disqualified you just apply again and everything will transfer over.

              Side note: I'm seeing in 20/15 now. It's amazing.

              Than you all, it is without a doubt a great feeling to go back in CASS and see it at a 100%.

          • Just wondering.. For people without Provisional how long did it take to clear your BI after meeting with the investigator? I met with him in December. Patience is running out

              I met with my investigator back in October, and it didnt clear till last month. Just live your life, and leave CBP in the background. The time will come.

              which has least forced ot?
              which is a wanted port so can swap later?

              They're offering those particular ports for good reasons.

              Morale is pretty much bad everywhere.
              Forced overtime depends almost as much on the shift one works as the port. Stay away from southern border ports and the largest airports to avoid forceouts. I'd say Buffalo, A-Bay, maybe Baltimore off that list.

              See the first sentence. None of those ports are highly desirable to others. Buffalo probably is the best of a bad lot here.

              I dont work at A-Bay so I cant speak for Morale, but Its listed on the CBP.gov as one of the critical hire locations. So until they get more body's I would assume plenty of OT to be had.

              Now having lived in the area for 10 years I can tell you it's a love it or hate it place. If you like city life it's not for you, Watertown is the closest city (30 min south of the Canadian border) and it's not big. Fort Drum, also in the area has probably 20-25 thousand Soldiers and family members that drive the local economy. Closest large city is Syracuse and that's about an hour south of Watertown. If you like a less warm climate and snow, I have great news there is plenty and winter is freezing. Average winter brings 114 inches of snow, yes almost 4x the US average. In 2007 it snowed 146 inches in two weeks it took earth movers and construction equipment to re open
              I81. Winter temps average between 9 and 34 degrees Fahrenheit but do get much colder, in 2017 we hit a record -32f in December.

              Its quiet. Hunting and fishing are great.

              Its NY, taxes are ridiculous.

              But it is my preferred place to start, but only because I own a house here and it will make for an easy transition from my current job.

              Hope that answers some of your questions.

          • Any one have any information on Houlton Maine? IE: schedule, Morale, OT, Area ( good place to raise kids,things to do, etc)?

                Mine said "Further Evaluation" but that's because of a car accident back in 2013-2014. Still cleared medical without additional documents.

            • Hey Everyone!

              Anyone know the process for a CBP Officer switching from one airport to another once they join? Goal is to join JFK if given the chance and possible switch to Dulles down the years.

                Same here, I want to join JFK and transfer to PA or NJ in a few years, I would like to buy a house in the future and NYC is just too expensive.

                If you take a port with bonus pay you are locked in for 3 years (could be wrong on that lock in period). I’m not quite sure the transfer process, my guess would be putting your name on a list and waiting for an opening or possibly quicker if they accept mutual transfers.

                There are a few options you have to switch ports:
                Transfer- Occasionally transfers will open up for specific ports that Officers off OJT and a specific grade can apply for. I'm not sure of the exact requirements and eligibility but I imagine seniority is taken into account.

                NROB- An Officer can put there name in a pool for a chance to be selected by seniority to go to any Port that has openings. If you get an offer you must take it or be bared from using NROB. If you take the offer you can't transfer again for 2 years.

                Port swap- If you're an Officer at IAD that wants to go to LAX and an LAX Officer wants to go to IAD you can request a swap.

                There's a couple other ways, but they require you to get to NTC or Pre-Clearence first.
