      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.
      I've never work Tampa and I have no special knowledge of the place, so I'm not likely to be much help...but...

      Some ports work officers at both airports and seaports interchangeably, some pretty much separate them completely. Some ports have officers that interchange between cargo and passenger, some don't. I have no idea how Tampa does their thing.

      Class 4 BDU's(cloth badge and nameplate) are generally for those areas where cargo processing is done and generally in areas outside the public eye. Generally. Landborder is a bit different. If an airport/seaport has a climate controlled passenger processing facility, you're probably looking at the fancy class 2 uniforms. Outside, aboard ship, etc. it's probably a class 3 uniform.

        Varies. It will depend on what test centers are available and when.

          The benefits are pretty much identical. As for who makes more money, it's all going to depend on each individual situation. Generally speaking CBPO's tend more towards the extremes then PA's. PA's tend toward the high middle.

              If you do a search here and elsewhere, you'll find the links for pay in Arizona. You'll also find the academy pay info in here somewhere as well.

              Happy searching,
              Mer.

                  Same thing for me, I'm waiting for my current federal employer to send them documents but they still put me in TSU.........

                      • Cbpstyle, are you prepared for the dramatic difference in weather? Buffalo's wonderfully freezing cold winters to Miami's beaches? Personally, I'm not a fan of the heat but this is a nice upgrade. Congrats!

                          If you don't mine I would like to ask a couple of questions about the Miami Port that you may know since your brother is already there. Is he happy with his career? Would he prefer the airport or the seaport? What is the work schedule like? And is it relatively easy to gain seniority there. Also if your brother is from up north as well how do he like the south Florida living? Thanks in advance.

                          • Hey, I'm new to the forum. I have read through alot of the threads and have gotten alot of information. I am currently waiting on my vbt results which I took March 3, 2009 and my background to clear. Everything else is complete. I live in Georgia, and anyone not from here has to get ready to adjust to the summers down here. The bugs are no joke either but you all will get used to it. I am hoping for Atlanta Hartsfield Airport. Anyone hear any news from Atlanta?

And he does immigration now bc he don't like working with all the drugs stuff. He likes south Florida living , says Miami is just a great place to visit. He put in transfer for Ottawa Airprt. He will get dip status, his mortage , utilities, and kids private schooling paid for while he works there . hope this helps , enjoy. And to moving from buffalo living in buffalo for 22 yrs u best believe I'm ready for M.I.A. !!!
