    I was talking to CBPO at work today and she told me that Secretary Janet Napolitano put a hold on all hiring for people already in TSU until at least 04/06/09 so she can "review the budget".......anyone else hear this?
    I haven't.

    04/06 is only a week away though; just a week of no hiring wouldn't be likely to affect all that many people.

      True, but knowing how the government works, I can see this backing things up quite a bit......

      • What are the nearest CBP offices to someone living in Temecula, CA? Is it San Diego airport, Ontario airport, San Bernardino airport or some other DHS locations?

        Thanks for any help.

                As I see it, not very likely.

                First, this year's classes are already funded and scheduled. Second, nearly everyone headed to FLETC in the next 2 months has already received an EOD date and a FLETC date.

                Most likely, we're looking at people who would have gotten the call on 03/30/09 to EOD on 04/27 now getting the call on 04/07 to EOD on 04/27.
                Might it affect some people who can't move quickly over the short term...possibly. Then again, it'll probably actually move up some of the guys/gals that are able to drop everything and move within two weeks or so.

                Long-term...probably not much changes.

                    Third category, employee vetting and credentialing: Within the next 60 days, we're going to develop a process for obtaining preliminary security background data for candidates referred for final consideration in the hiring process. Now, as we know, every DHS employee must undergo a background check. However, too often we have discovered these checks are conducted on people who have clear disqualifying factors that will prevent them from being hired. Nonetheless, the hiring process continues, and it wastes money, up to $5,500 per background check for a top secret clearance. And by the way, it also creates unnecessary backlogs. In the future, we are going to make it easier to identify potential disqualifying factors early on in the process. This will reduce the number of overall background checks and the time it takes to bring cleared personnel on board.



                    this is part of the speech that particularly affects applicants

                      Next, on-boarding, on-boarding new employees: Within the next 120 days, we will also initiate a process to improve new employee orientation and annual mandatory training. Now, to be sure, orientation and training are a critical part of maintaining and expanding professionalism within the department. But right now there's too much duplication and not enough consistency from one agency to the next. We want to streamline this process for new employees, and for all employees, actually. To this end, we are going to consolidate our new employee orientations and our annual mandatory training modules. This will eliminate duplicate course offerings and standardize the content of our orientation and mandatory training curriculum.

                      • I didn't see anything about hiring freeze so hopefuly that is just an unsubstantiated rumour.
