      • ninja, I think the confirmation is just confirming the test date & location. Not necessarily the application itself. I received the confirmation for my test site this morning around 3am as well. It probably is an automated process that sent the confirmation out to applicants (compiles, organizes, and send out list every day at 3am?) that applied during the day time. Only test site in NY is up by Buffalo, so I did not select that, NJ was not an option, I dont have a car anyway, I was thinking MetroNorth up to CT, but Hartford is 30 miles drive from New Haven, the last stop on MetroNorth. So it was between D.C. and Philly, both cities serviced by megabus.com so I went with Philadelphia. My friend tried to apply last night and was told that Philadelphia test site was full.

                Congrats on getting "the call". It seems JFK/NY has a high demand. I would think about changing locations but remember I never want to live in NY or CA. The taxes are crazy!

                      the confirmation emails are sent out to NEW applicants for TESTING, all you have to do is sit and wait for you NOR letter, then hope for the new TO to arrive before you get the call!....

                      Those in MIA will get the higher locality pay in Florida, not sure if Port Everglades and Keys get it as well, but the rest of Florida falls under REST of US locality.

                      Congratulations to those of you getting the call!...

                        Generally the cost of living is higher in New York than in Florida. But of course it depends on where you live with both. Both New York and Florida have rural areas where housing is cheaper. On pay, a GS-5 (step 1) in New York (BUFFALO-NIAGARA-CATTARAUGUS) makes $31,456 where a GS-5 (step 1) in Florida (MIAMI-FORT LAUDERDALE-POMPANO BEACH) makes $32,488, both also depending on location. GS-5 (step 1) for rest of US is $30,772.

                        On average the Federal Cost of Living Index for New York for the year of 2008 was 127 and Florida was 103, with the national average cost of living is fixed at 100.

                        Also Florida does not have an income tax, where New York’s income tax would be 6.8%.

                        • Current CBP Officers,
                          I read a bit on the delphi forums and most of it is negative regarding the job. What is the real skinny on your job? Do you enjoy it?
                          How does the shify work and holiday/weekends work? In other words, do senior officers get days while rookies get nights, etc?

                          Any other details on the day to day is appreciated especially at an airport or water port (not southern border).
                          Thanks

                              I'm interested in the same question, but actually in regards to the southern border. Thanks ahead of time.
