  • I took the test on nov. 7 and I applied to work anywhere in florida. I was just wondering how many locations are you able to pick since I am willing to relocate anywhere else.

    • This is my first post here, and I've found a lot of good information. However, the one thing I can't find a clear answer on is how much can I expect to take home, pay wise. I know the GS-5 pay is around $31800 and some change for the Los Angeles area. But How often will I have a chance to work overtime and nights? I'm trying to compare this to the LA County Sheriff's department. Their base pay is $61,000 to start, and they can get plenty of OT. Plus they are on the 3% at 50 retirement. So, if there are any CBP Officers out there, I would appreciate if you can tell me what an officer would make in the real world. I understand the you are promoted every year to another GS level, up to 11, and then steps after that.

      My wife just gave birth to twins, so I don't have the luxury of waiting for the perfect job. I have to get a career going soon. But if a CBPO officer can only make mid 30's in pay, then I may need to wait for another position.

      Thanks for all of the help, and I hope this question has not been answered before.

      • I currently hold an 0083 SRT position which is a pretty good gig, just wondering, I just accepted a position as a GS-7 and after reading some of the post, is CBPO really that bad?!?!?

        • I got gs7 because I checked the box I would only accept a gs7 job. I have only a few college hours but many years local LE. Whether you get gs5 or gs7 depends on the mood of the person reviewing your case.
          I know folks with college degrees and LE that only got gs5 while others worked as an office clerk, no college, and got a gs7. That person is now a sup.

          • LASIK and Selection Process

            Hey everybody, my first post here. I had the medical exam about 3 weeks ago and had a question about the vision requirements. I already know that I will not qualify because I didn't meet the uncorrected requirements. The status for medical is still pending on CASS. Well, I remember reading about one poster who was having LASIK done. I don't recall the outcome of whether or not this person, I think "Sierra"? got hired finally or not. Well, I am scheduled to have LASIK surgery in early February, and I'm just wondering, after I have the surgery, will I be able to continue in the selection process, or does one in this situation usually just have to wait for another job announcement. Thanks very much for your replies. And Happy New Year.

              I did not pass vision either. But I already had a date for LASIK. I called the medical # for MHC and told them my surgery date. Then they sent me a letter requesting info 90 days after LASIK. It didn't seem to slow down my process at all. I had the surgery in July and I am going to FLETC the end of JAN.

              Best of luck to you!!!

              • Training

                Hi all! I have three questions.

                1. If you are training for 6 days a week down at fletc, do you get overtime for Sat?

                2. Is there any wireless internet service on fletc?

                3. Is anyone out there in Class 823?


                Thanks,

                  Hi scubaguy.

                  1. Yes, OT is given for Sat.

                  2. I have heard there is wireless in the G-bar, and possibly the new dorms which are referred to as the "Taj".

                  3. 821.

                  See you there!

                      they do have wireless service but you have to go to the g bar. you cant pick up the signal from the dorms or the library. your best bet is to pick up a aol or msn internet disk and just dial up. its slow and all but at least you can take care of your email and banking and whatever from the privacy of you dorm room.
                      good luck!

                      • You can always spring for that Verizon Wireless card for your laptop... it connects over the air... I think most cell companies have this too...

                          You should get an offer for GS 7 unless they are looking at a Bachelor's.. not sure. I had a BS and several years experience in the white collar crime scene... Got hired as a 7 several years ago.

                            LIES, LIES, LIES... they are all lies !!!!!

                            What kind of information are you getting my brother? We now have LEO status(will see how good it is), you will not kill yourself with the work load(depending on where you go) you stop bad guys at the borders of our motherland, arrest drug smugglers, stop the weapons of mass-distruction way far from our land (CSI-program all over the world) plus as a fed you can carry your weapon to defend yourself and other LEO brothers in need in all of the 50 states Overtime is still paid at double rate, as a GS11 step 3 (with some sacrifices) one can make $90,000. Beats doing construction work in heat, rain and snow. What else can I say???
