          Congrats!!

          Are you sure your FLETC date isn't Feb 19th? I have the same EOD date as you and start FLETC Feb 19th class 930. Just wondering...

            Tell me about it, I'm waiting on my BI as well to complete on CASS. Investigator turned everything in on November 26. I have a great job currently but look foward to a bigger and brighter future with CBP, and hopefully at the Oakland Port.

              It is not uncommon to have two different classes start the same week... Congrats BTW.

                I have heard they do, just wouldn't expect them to be that close. Thanks, and congrats to you as well!

                    Less job openings, less cbp's leaving their jobs in fears of not finding another one?

                    Just a thought.
                    The positions they're looking to fill today probably were vacated in 07-early 08. Check back in a about a year for whatever effects the slowdown caused.

                    Who leaves a job without first lining up another? Pretty risky planning, if you ask me.

                    • Question, since I couldn't find it in the search this thread. Do you get all your issued gear including your firearm at FLETC, or once you get to your working location? I'm guessing your actual working loctation. Right? Thanks

                        I believe you get it sometime during the academy, because you have to get used to the weapon. Training etc. and then they ship it to your port and its ready for you on your first day.

                        I could be way off, but I think thats how it works.

                          Once you get to FLETC you'll get your uniform allowance and you'll be able to order your stuff. Your weapon is assigned to you and once you graduate it is shipped to your port. You'll be using the "smurfs" uniforms for the first few weeks while your gear is sent in, I believe that's how it goes... from what I've been told!...

                            You get everything at FLETC. Boots, uniforms and the like. Your gear will somewhat differ depending where you are gonna be stationed. For example if youre from michigan you get the winter coat, but not if your from miami. If you want the bdu style though, you gotta order that seperate with your vf solutions account. You get your baton and that when you qualify. The firearm is the same one you use all through fletc and they overnight it to your POE when you graduate.

                            • Just out of curiosity, what are "smurfs" ? Does anyone have any pictures of the uniforms, etc?? Is there a dress uniform? What kind of cover do they wear?

                              • Hello all, I lwent into e-Qip for the first time to start the background for BPA and found two investigation requests with seperate numbers. I've been waiting for a TO as a CBPO for ND, I'm thinking either a TO is coming for the CBPO position or they just screwed up. Any thoughts? I'll call MHC on Monday to find out for sure... Just wanted to see if this has happened to anyone else.
