    What are overall taxes like in California now ?
    Cool! I chose the Calexico POE as well. There is a lot of overtime here so you'll be racking up some cash. Where are you in the application process? Well, I'll see you in Calexico man! Good luck!

    • There is definitely something stirring within CBP – I’ve got my TO on 1/30, sent out the forms a week later, on 25th had my VBT and now they’ve scheduled me for medical on March 3rd.

      It seems I’ll be done with everything within a month and all I’ll have to do is wait (few years perhaps) for my BI.

      I guess they really need new people – good news to us all!

        Well, there is no rhyme nor reason, no consistency and no way to predict the hiring process. But i will tell you that the pot seems to get stirred from time to time. For example, many of us have been waiting 4-6 months on the security and magically all sorts of us have been clearing that hurdle in the last week or so. Keep on keepin' on!

        • Ever wandered how CBP Stamp Monkey looks like?

          There is Disney Collection and Nutcracker, even Frank Sinatra has one, so why not our mascot, huh?

            Is there a slight difference from being in TSU and it saying EOD? Or is it the same thing? Only ask because there was a post saying different earlier. Thanks for the conformation guys.

              Yeah, TSU is where you sit and wait for a job offer after completing all your pre-employment steps. EOD is when you've accepted a job and location and are waiting to start working at pre-academy. This is how it was in '07, don't think it changed but i could be wrong.

                Thanks, kinda had a hunch there was. Thing is I have not accepted anything or have been called yet. I'll take my EOD though...LOL

                • This is hearsay from another forum, but someone posted that they spoke with TSU and Florida is now all full up for now.

                    They might have switched up the wording recently. You could always email TSU for clarification.

                    • Academy date

                      Does anyone recall the latest academy date we have seen posted on here. Such as someone saying my academy date is March --, April --, I don't think we have seen a May academy posting date yet.

                        Latest start dates I've seen have been mid-April.

                        • Would you agree that if someone is waiting in TSU it would be safe to say they will not have an academy date sooner than that?

                            It's hard to speculate on that. You never know if someone will not report for EOD and/or be dropped for other reasons. I imagine spots could theoretically open up if something happened and they needed to fill a class.

                              Good point.

                                this is very true because when I recieved my academy date of April 15th, I got a call back from tsu 24 hours later saying they need me to report a week sooner because someone had dropped out of the academy that was suppose to take my port.
