    If you're looking for action, cause you get bored easy, then try local PD...
    or you might want to apply for BPA.

      Not until after you have your sit down interview with an investigator. Once you are scheduled for that interview, its best to go ahead and tell your boss because it will look better coming from you first.

        Right at the beginning of your Investigation...
        As to seeing officers asleep... that would probably be because of a Double shift... and very WRONG of them to do so!
        There's a show that aired called Homeland Security USA on ABC, go and see if you can watch the episodes online and see if CBPO is for you...
        There is a wealth of knowledge about the whole process in this Forum, you haven't even tested, so I suggest you begin reading from the top...
        It will give you a chance to familiarize you with the hiring process and all the troubles and pains of the "waiting game", plus most of your current and future questions will be answered.
        If you like learning... then start the reading!...

        BTW
        there are 3 types of POE's not just land borders, but Airports, and Sea Ports, and the jobs are a bit different at each. Nothing guarantees you that on the next announcement those SW border POE's will be available as options, so be advised.

        • Great news. Background cleared several days ago for BP and application was sent for final review. But still waiting in the TSU lounge for a Customs position. At least things are moving. Hopefully one of the two hats thrown will stick.

            Well my BI went back to pending on CASS. MHC says the security folks will contact me for additional info. I dont know what the heck is up, hopefully its nothing to serious. Maybe its fate, since they are only offering up the SOO right now.

                3/25/2009 You have tentatively met the pre-employment requirements and your file is being reviewed. Once a final determination is made that all requirements have been met, you will be notified of the next steps.

                will my TSU date Change?? is this normal?

                    Thank you. Yeah I guess I was. All I can say to people is patience. As the few forum veterans on this site have been saying. This process can take a long time. Sometimes you feel like something is wrong or they forgot you. So to all of the people waiting. Hang in there!!! and Good Luck to everyone on this site who have been so helpful.
                    Keep the Faith!

                      That is the only way to look at that sort of misfortune. You said you wouldn't be able to move up there, so this is all for the best. You'll get there.

                        Yeah man thanks. I dont know what the heck is going on, you know how "cloak and dagger" everything BI related is. I wonder whats up with only the SOO hiring, that seems so odd to me.

                        • CASS changes/updates

                          So I went back into CASS today to see what changed, and yeah, it is now SSN and ID rather than your DOB. Also, apparently after the update to the login system, my list of items updated, so everything now reads as completed. No face-to-face contact from a BI yet--perhaps I have an interim clearance.

                              Thanks. Ive read the same thing but I figure if all your pre-employment steps have been completed recently, then they should still be valid if you re-apply. Although my BI is interim, so that may not transfer anyways. I'll just hope I get offered Port Everglades. Anyone on this forum from there know if they are in need of more officers?
