I know there's a lot more to it than that, but just curious. The perscription on my contacts is -2.25 in both eyes. I do have an exam coming up and can ask then, but this has really been bothering me lately! Thanks guys!
        Yes they can but you still going to have take the vision test. You have the same prescription as me, You going to have to take your time and pray you past, I failed the first time on circle test version, then took the standard one, and pass barley

I wouldn't give 2 weeks until you are offered a firm offer of employment. There have been cases of people being stuck in TSU for 90+ days......
            If I'm not mistaken I read on this forum where somebody had a similar situation and when he got the call he asked for his Eod to be scheduled a week or two later. Not sure how it works but that may be an option.

              Thanks Southwest! I realize I'll still have to take the test, I just didn't want to waste my time (or theirs!) applying and trying to go through the process if I wasn't near qualified vision wise. I appreciate your response.

                        Not knowing where you draw the line as far as the 'hiring process' goes... I'll say that by the time you graduate and are skilled enough to do the job more or less on your own, the number is well over 100K.

                        • BI cleared today as well... all has cleared except for my Pre-Employment forms. I called MHC and they told me "Your 75 information packet (for current fed employees) has not been sent out" and that it should be sent in a few days.... then I can join everybody in TSU (I hope)

                          • Question

                            Hey Merlin,

                            This may be kind of a stupid question, but hopefully you know the answer. I really want the Tampa area. The seaport also has a cruise port and cbp takes care of that as well. Is there a group assigned to just the cruise areas and Port areas. Does whoever is working just kind of go wherever the need may be. I am just wondering as I have read on here that the port cargo guys have different clothes versus the folks who interact with citizens everyday.

                            Just wondering as I sit and wait.
