    • Straight from the uniform policy:

      33. What kind of earrings are allowed to be worn by uniformed employees?
      Answer: Only females are authorized to wear plain, stud-type earrings no more than ¼ inch in diameter. The wearing of more than one (1) pair of earrings is prohibited.

      34. Can I wear earrings that meet the published standard, but is worn on the upper portion of the ear?
      Answer: No, this is not authorized.

      35. Can I have a tattoo and wear a uniform?
      Answer: Yes, but it must be concealed if obscene, racially motivated or gang related. Nudity, expletives, hateful words/symbols, gang signs, etc would be considered obscene, racially motivated, or gang related.

      36. Are body alterations authorized under the Personal Appearance Standards (PAS)?
      Answer: No, intentional alterations such as tongue splitting, tongue forking disfiguring skin implants, tooth filing, etc., are prohibited.

      • frisco, Im sorta in the same boat about the whole vacation dilemma. Trying to plan a week cruise with my lady but wouldnt wanna get a call for BI interview or Pee test while Im hangin out in the middle of the ocean or something.

        USCG, yeah, its a big leap, but Im sure it'll be worth it. Im one of the millions that got laid off so I kinda have nothing to lose but Im crazy excited to get started. Good luck and best wishes to you and your family.

Any CBPO vets have any input on this? What are the chances of being let go for whatever reason during your probationary period?
                  Whoops...I didn't mean to put the fear in yah.

                  I wasn't suggesting CBP is going around and willy-nilly pulling back jobs from new hires. As far as I know, it's rare to get yourself fired...and I've never heard of anyone let go for no good reason.

                    Nah, no fear! I'll just take your point into consideration.

                    • Last week a stirring occurred. I called TSU, (speed dial #3) and spoke with Chris. I was told that there is still no funding for my area, but new and mysterious codes or part numbers have appeared. I will have to continue to call and find out the meaning of those codes.

                      Prior to last week the standard answer was I was in LIMBO and I would be called. Maybe there is hope. Still I don't really want to go in the HOT Georgia Summers. Not looking forward to that at all. But will endure for the end goal. Can I pray for La Quinta?

                      Good luck all starting in the upcoming weeks.

                            I know what you mean, I was a little confused to why I wasn't drug tested when I did my physical/fitness. I was already at the doctor's office, why couldn't I take the screening to get it over and done with for processing. But the drug testing seems to be a somewhat touchy issue with the hiring center to be able to spring it upon you so the applicant can't "prepare" themselves. I understand why they do it the way they do, and it's something you don't want to make a big issue out of.
