    Perhaps Florida all other is full but not Miami. Especially with the new international terminal opening. There are 27 going to FLETC soon for Miami. I heard Key West needs people also.

      I'm still in pending ville on BI month 6 and going. Do you know if any of the Andrade guys get good overtime even though it closes at 12pm. Good luck

          Even if that's true, I wouldn't read all that much into it.

          I'd compare it to walking away from the table because their belly is all full up. Yeah...it's true, but they're still going to be hungry again real soon.

          • Border Patrol has a "Drop of the Hat Club", where people can "sign up" to be called up on short notice to go anywhere if and when somebody cancels at the last moment or whatever and they have last minute class seats to fill.

            OFO doesn't...not that I'm aware of.

            That's not to say that they'd never call and offer short-notice in OFO, but from what I've seen previously though those seats pretty much just stay unfilled.

              Well, that would be the Algodones port. If it closes at 12 mid-night, my guess is that you wont have much overtime. Calexico, on the other hand has 2 ports of entry and OT is Mandatory from what I here from the CBP's everytime I cross on my vehicle. Where do you live? If you live in Yuma, then Calexico is just about 45 minutes away and you'll see a big difference on your paycheck (if there is no OT in Andrade). I'm pretty sure that they'll call you up for the next class at FLETC. Hang in there!

                Today I have green check marks for all of my pre-employment requirements but not the "You have tentatively met the pre-employment requirements" message that many waiting on TSU get.

                I guess now the real fun begins....anxiously grabbing our phone at every ring.
                I received a phone call yesterday from MHC asking for a new drivers license agreement form. The lady said she was doing a final review on my file. I asked about BI and qualifications and was told that both cleared. However, qualification shows pending in cass...

                          Seems to me in my 2.5 years using cass that it updates pretty consistently on tuesdays and thursdays. Occasionally i've had updates on friday but i think that is just because i didnt check it on thursday. Any other day seems to be a waste of key strokes.

                          • I haven't posted in a while, just wanted to give some info about my adventures at FLETC. I'm from class 922, I just finished week 8, so I'm officially halfway there. I will be graduating on APR 22. I was blessed not to be staying on base, FLETC is so booked right now that my entire class (48 people) is staying off base at LA QUINTA. There are some disadvantages of not staying on base, but for the most part having my own room and bathroom and my privacy is really priceless. About 90% of the people staying inside FLETC are either sharing a bathroom or the whole room, there's only a lucky few that have privacy there. The government really spoils you at FLETC the whole place really caters to you, we get decent food 3 times a day ( i just can't eat it on the weekends) so you just can't help but give 200%. At least from my end, but I'm not gonna lie there are some people there training for CBP, just giving a half *** effort because they either don't care or they're too out of shape, really overweight. It kind of makes you wonder how the hell did they get the job. Rumors has it that as of OCT 2009 they will be lowering the 1 1/2 mile to 15 minutes. Once they do that maybe we will become more of an elite unit, which is the way it should be. Now if you are overweight and you can complete all the physical requirements then I don't have a problem but there are some people there that failed the run the first time and they're just going through the motions and we worry more about them trying to help them more than they worry about themselves. Anyways I don't wanna bore you guys but if there is anything you wanna now about FLETC let me know, I'll check postings later on today.

                                Still waiting to be cleared!.... I wish I was there with you bud.... It's been 2 weeks since my file was sent up the chain at IA, still no word, but I'm still showing up on the system which is good. Keep at it, your time there will be done really soon.
