    You already got your answer above. You're in TSU so you're waiting for the call.
    Sorry about that. I was just still unsure of whether or not my background had also been cleared. Thanks

      • If the CASS Hotline says: "You have tentatively met all the pre-employment steps, after a review of your file, you will be notified of the next step."

        Does that mean I'm in TSU now?

          referred to TSU CBPO - 10/16/08
          I'm in for CA SW border for CBPO as well, TSU on 11/21/08. I think we're in for the long haul (even though I might be waiting a bit longer than you). I find it silly though that there isn't any spots opening up. I think half of it is because they are busy as sin down there, but I can't believe that there aren't vacancies around the top busiest land borders in the US. It's puzzling to me to say the least.

          • I just called the hotline and they said they forwarded my paperwork to the scheduling department for them to call me with an EOD date.

                There is nothing more frustrating than waiting for something to happen that no one knows how to get the ball rolling.

                Thank you.

                Do you have Obama's phone number yet?

                • Hey SAP123, I read a post earlier that you indicated you got offered a BPA position in Indio. You talked to the hiring center and they told you someone would be calling from CBP for possible vacancies? You must have turned down the BPA position by now or the offer has been withdrawn. I wasn't really clear. Oh, I see that your EOD date is Jan 8 for BP. Will the hiring center call you for CBPO while your in the academy? I thought that they wouldn't call u or continue your process until your out. I don't know what they told you on the phone though.

                  Indio didn't sound too interesting huh? BPA is great pay no matter what station you go to, plus you get your GL 7 or 9 in 7 months after EOD. Just getting through their academy is pretty painful though for quite a few trainees. If your in top physical condition it will make things a lot less stressful. It is also very paramilitary and sometimes feels like your at bootcamp. Of course CBPO and BPA are almost two totally different jobs but with the same mission.

                  Good luck in your decision making process, wether it's BPA or CBPO. I'm sure with San Diego being such a big port, they are always hiring and needing people. It's just a matter of time.....short I hope.

                  • [QUOTE=furrball409;1547088]Can anyone tell me what this letter means? I just recieved a letter stating;

                    "All of your pre-appointment processesing has been successfuly completed. Our training Scheduling Unit will be contacting you directly when they are ready to place you. Discussions will begin at that time concerning academy class assignment, duty station location, and entrance on duty date availability."

                    It means your next step is receiving a phone call. The letter was very sraight forward.

                      Oh, believe me, there are spots. We're doing overtime like you wouldn't believe and they're still drafting for OT. The last hiring binge here saw about 200 new hires, but still they draft. Much of it is because we're under-staffed. It is well documented that there is a significant attrition rate not only here but agency-wide, and that compounds the problem of manning a port this size.

                      It appears the agency is staffing other areas around the country as it may be their turn in the rotation. There were 18 candidates in my FLETC class from this SO-CAL port and I'm only seeing 1 or 2 in current classes. We're all hopeful hiring picks up here again (at least I am- my poor dogs could use a break.)

                      But if you want to make a few extra quid in OT, this is a great place to do it.

                            That'll depend on your school. It's possible with some to convert a few credits. Don't expect many. I think the most credits I've heard of given for the new program was 12.

Today I called MHC and they had me as active in Florida and that my TO for LA had been withdrawn on monday. I re-applied on the last opening to change Geo location to Florida, and you have to wait for the pool of testers to go through so that the TO's are sent out in score order... I'll probably be getting my new TO in the mail soon, and thankfully everything I had done and was still pending transfered over.
                              So, in short... TO's for the last opening will be going out soon... Good Luck Guys

                              Thanks for the info.

                              Was your GEO preference listed on the last announcement or did you just change your GEO preference? My GEO wasn't on this last announcement, but my application was reactivated under 09-01 anyway.

                              That's good news to hear that they are just waiting for everyone to finish up, and hopefully TO's will be going out soon.
