  • Hey yall, any CBPO DH 18-6 out there??? I finally got the call this past Monday and I am excited to say I EOD on Dec. 14 for Lukeville, AZ.
    I was kind of surprised when I was told that I have to spend 2 weeks there before I begin at FLETC, since I do not recall seeing that I have to do that and cover all of my expenses!
    Is that something new in place becasue of the pandemic or has this been done before?? I also could use some help finding accomodations if that's the case.

      Thanks, I figured that 2 week window is to allow the person to decide whether or not they want to continue. I do wish there was some kind of assistance in finding accomodations for those 2 weeks

  • Anyone know if getting in to Orlando is difficult for gs-5? Or even possible? Lol non-vet here been waiting on a poly for over a year now. Or should I work a port closer to me and try and transfer in a year or two?

      Ok so next question, how hard is it to transfer in?

      As a rule of thumb, I'd say it's seldom easy to transfer anywhere.

  • I have just received an email saying I passed medical phase. I passed medical exam a year ago in May, and was notified within few days with Cass reflecting green. So I am not sure why they are sending this email a year later. Im curious if anyone else received something like this?

      I received the same email the other day as well. I completed my medical back in December 2018. My guess is that things are moving along. Did you take your polygraph?

      There's been a lot of glitches in the system. I received it as well again yesterday. I've also received several emails telling me to register for my test which I already passed a year ago, so my best guess is that the system is just glitchy.

      Playmaker1996 I'd highly recommend looking up info on here and the delphi forums about SFO. Theres some serious stuff going on there. Not trying to sway you - but I'd want to know...

    • So back at FLETC and you're made to sign a document regarding us not being able to leave. If you're driving you'll be OK, you can walk with your personal supermarket, if your flying, make friends with a person who has a POV and give them a grocery list to survive. FLETC is not going to be the same for a while, until.this COVID-19 thing is at a low contamination rate. You just have to role with the punches. Good Luck everyone !!!

        Kevin1234 Do they have any updates on when the next set of classes will be headed there? If so, can you let us know how many classes will be sent and how often.

    • So leaving FLETC is on a case by case medical basis, you have to write a memo, and once reviewed and approved, you'll be given basically a permission slip, without it you would not be allowed back on campus, only to pick up your things and be kicked out.

      Try to Make friends with someone with a car, for persons who are now about EOD. I gave my session pal a grocery list for me, because I flew back to FLETC. Because you won't be allowed to leave to do shopping at Walmart etc.

      SheepDogg I'll ask around. Right now everything is done via webex.

          Same guys, although I’m 20-4 my medical was done a while ago and I’m just now getting my email for clearance, I hope that means they’re moving along with the process slowly but surely!

          Kevin1234 What about haircuts? Is that not a requirement at FLETC during this period?

            Lol last I knew FLETC had a tiny 3 chair Barbershop. So, with social distance policies that probably means 1 customer allowed inside at a time. I'm guessing you could make an appointment when you show up, and hopefully it would be your turn in time for graduation.

            That was also years ago when I attended a friend's graduation hopefully they have updated since then, if not hopefully they have planned something to address that for the current restrictions. Heard a rumor they were going to set up a trailer or something to expand the the little Express store, so who knows.

            If it's mandated to get a haircuts while at FLETC I'm pretty sure FLETC and/or the responsible agency will provide for a way to get them done...otherwise they risk butting heads with multiple unions and multiple CBAs.

            Yea but they not making a fuss about it, they understand the situation. So they aren't looking at grooming. Even the FLETC barbershop is closed. So dont worry about it.

            For guys learn to give yourself a high and tight. It's super easy with a little practice and will keep you cool in the hotter weather. A $20-$40 clipper set will keep you going all academy long.

I’m looking on the CBP website and it says a GS9 can make, “be promoted in June 2022 to GS-9 and make $52,905 - $97,905 per year” That is a $45,000 range and more than my military salary. Is that completely dependent on overtime being made? Locality to where you are stationed? Could someone shed some light on if you actually make 45k in overtime pay? Is that common? Appreciate the input.

          Virtually no one makes 45K in overtime and very few even come close to 45K. For most, working at near an additional 45K would require working midnights, Sundays and a fair amount of overtime. Overtime and premium pay earnings are currently capped at $45K. Average mean overtime earnings run somewhere around $13K agency-wide in a normal year, so that ought to give you an idea of how rare it would be to approach the pay cap...especially as a GS-09. I'm not saying there's not a relative handful who manage to accomplish such a feat...but it's sure not common.
