    1st day of Pre-Academy down. 28 New Hires today at MIA going to FLETC 3/12 and 3/13 in 2 different classes.

    Swore in today, signed a bunch of paperwork, got direct deposit and health insurance taken care of, and just different people talking to us trying to tell us what to expect.

    On a side note, you can fit 28 people into an airport elevator.
    28 people WOW! I hope there is still room for. Please give me the heads up on anything and let me know how you can get to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. Thanks

    • So some idiot today at work thinks that because we are not in uniform yet thinks that he can mess around. Our supervisor comes over and tells ALL the trainees that if anyone messes around one more time he will make sure that DC will be notified and see to it that person gets fired.

      If you are starting soon, please treat pre-academy seriously and dont screw it for everyone else or you will be hated by all your classmates!

      • My apologies, as I view this forum as a great resourse and didn't intend to jeopardize anyone.

        Thanks Yoda for the advice!

          • it doesn't look like it's on USAJOBS anymore.. i think you might have to wait :/ any reason in particular that you want to move from BP to CBP?

              • damn that sucks. since you're BP the process would go by pretty fast for you too. my roommate was BP and tested 12/1/08 and got "the call" like feb 12. i'm jealous that he took the test 4 months after me and got in before me.

                  Don't feel too bad it wasn't a national announcement only certain ports.SW border and Washington state I believe but there were only about 6 locations open total so there may be another announcement before too long.

                  • This is the response email to the question I asked about the Detroit Vacancies:

                    "We are having an Open Period for Limited locations (Jan 30, 2009 until Feb 16, 2009) at this time and then we will have a Nationwide Open Period in the early Spring (which will include Detroit.)"
                    There is no greater love - than that of a man - that will give his life for another.

                    If God carried a gun - it would be a 1911

                    • How much time do they give you after pre-academy to get to FLETC? Also, how much time after FLETC do you get to move your junk to the new port? Does it vary depending on how far you are from your port, or is it a set time frame for everyone?

                        Cant speak for every situation, but you'd better have your stuff in order. Normally you'll have your last day of pre-academy on say, Tuesday and have to report to fletc on Thursday. Then technically if you graduate on Thursday, unless you take leave, you're supposed to be reporting for work at your POE on Friday.

                            On a brighter note, they will normally let you take an advance on your leave so you can use a day or two in conjunction with your travel day, which will come in handy if your driving a long way.

                                Nah, whether you pass or fail, you will get a results notice in the mail.
