And what are the best places to stay in Miami since I will be moving down from Chicago. Any response will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Last open period in Nov 08' Florida was available as a Geo Pref. , maybe in the new one coming at the end of Jan it'll be an option as well.

              First, hit the quote button and answer in the same message.....

              Now,
              Florida has 2 Geo Preferences:
              A) Florida -All other Locations
              B) Florida- Miami

              Miami Geo Pref covers MIA, Sea Port, Keys and I think Port Everglades, the rest falls under the other preference. Marine Interdiction is separate from CBPO, you go directly into it if you meet the qualifications for it (read up on it at cbp.gov). Sea Ports are more of a 9 to 5 job type, as in a more structured schedule (less OT to be had) and more time to spend with the Family. Busy Airports or Border Crossings (lots of OT) irregular schedule and less time off. There are many opportunities to select which way you want to specialize once you hit GS-11, but you have to wait until then...
              Go to cbp.gov and then go to careers, you'll see which ones are hiring at this time or find out any information you want.

                        well the county of san diego is currently on a hiring freeze since december 08 i think, but they should pick up again soon. county sheriff's LE/detentions are entry level. so is any local pd. i think SD harbor police just recently had their test over the weekend or it's this coming weekend. correctional deputy probation officer for the county is also entry level. border patrol is hiring like crazy still for socal and their process takes 3-6 months total. my roommate got picked up in 4 months and i've read in BP forums of people getting hired for san diego and chula vista in just 3 months. but yeah.. there's tons of entry level out there, you just gotta look around.

                        • Since San Diego is on a hiring freeze; when do you think they will pick up again? Does anyone know? They will still go through the process of getting our stuff process though right?

                          • Damn I used to handle Florida customers for my company (I work in a maritime related industry.) I can't believe they make you apply for Florida other if you want a job in Jacksonville or Tampa say.

                            I mean to go through all of this to get a job in Jacksonville only to get Pensacola or Manatee would be gawd awful.

                              well here is the website (if posting websites is not allowed i can edit this post):
                              http://agency.governmentjobs.com/sdcounty/default.cfm

                              it looks like CDPO and sheriff cadet positions are on there, so i don't think it would hurt to apply.

                              oh and the IRS is hiring revenue officers nationwide, and the start date for the job says june 8, 09. but i think it starts at the gs-7 level. here's the link:

                                OOPS... sorry for the double post kainda new at this. wow that's actually what I was looking to hear. I didn't get a lot of school done in the marines giving the deployments and what not so I this port definitely would be good although OT is also good. one gs11 k9 that was spoke with made almost 90k two years ago... and that's port entry Algodones in Yuma az. down side no time with fam. a lot of my marines want me to stay but seriously I work (no bs) almost 10-12 hours days, some times even more. so I'm just tired of working dumb *** hours and not seen at least the difference on my check... to me that makes it worth it. don't get me wrong I love the core and its been fun but CBPO/BP seem to have similar benefits (i.e. leave, work hours, not so much medical and education but other things are alike) CBPO/BP they get paid OT in most places not to mention none comp promotions. The military does not… oh yea did I mention no more deployments...
