      When did you take the test? Did you get the grade by email, regular mail, or what?

      Thanks

        • Took the test on 11/06 in NYC. Got the grade in the mail on Saturday. The friggin envelope looked like a junk mail - I almost tossed it.

          Good Luck.

            • I meant no ill will to you Capone. I guess my real message was to be careful making cash the primary motivator in your endeavors. Not that there's anything wrong with it...but after a time money fails to satisfy and if you're truly unhappy with what you're doing, difficult days lie ahead. Been there. I schlepped stocks, bonds, and mutual funds for nearly ten years before I got fed up enough to leave that business. You sound like you'll be ok though. Best to you.

              And Hammer Monkey, I've been briefed on the current state of affairs at CBP. Further, my grandfather retired from U.S. Customs 30 years ago so I've heard many a war story. Not saying I've got the full scoop but I've got booth eyes wide open and am ready for the crap. There are opportunities within CBP that are quite varied and I have no intention of living in a booth for the rest of my career. Well, that's how I hope it works out. At this point all I can do is go for it.

              • Ok so dumb question that's probably been answered.

                I gather that if I got accepted, I'd see the first and probably second year, primarily in a booth stamping passports? Is there some variety in daily assignments to make the job worth it for the first couple of years?

                  You don't stamp anything in the booth. All immigration matters are referred inside to other officers who do that. Your going to need to work the line as almost 99.99% of all of us have before you. It is where you will learn the job first and foremost. After you do a good job at that, you will be allowed to be laterally trained in other areas such as Immigration, VACIS, Cargo, Training Officer, and Anti-Terrorism Enforcement Team.

                  Your variety is really made up by what type port you are going to. I started in El Paso, Texas, and if you wanted to get off the line, you caught a load of dope and worked it from the moment you cuff the person until you actually put the narcotics into the storage vault.

                  Now, you are going to have your hands full of just keeping up with what the computer tells you to do. There are so many different things to stay on top of inside that booth, that you need to really pay attention.

                        I actually didnt test for this announcement. I tested last may of 2006. they actually honored my old test score and applied it to this hiring. I emailed the hiring center just looking for an application status and thats what they told me.

                            • 1st Week! "The Chicken"

                              The chicken is not so bad...It's just not so good. The first week was pretty tough. They throw a lot at you all at once. Once you get used to fletc, its kind of nice here. I did my run 1.5 mile run today, finished with a minute to spare. For all those that hope to be fletc bound someday. Make sure you prepare yourself for this run before you get here. I must admit that I am in PAIN as I type this posting in my room. I did not prepare myself enough for the run and ADVIL is best friend tonight. Only about 70 more days togo.

                                I see. Well I didn't expect anything glamorous from the get go, but this info is pretty helpful. Thanks for the heads up.
