    If you're looking at just base pay...pretty much no one earns just base pay. Once you add in Sunday/night/evening differentials, holiday pay and overtime, you'll likely be making GS-11/03 base pay as GS-09...if you can see the overtime, it's possible as a GS-07. Someplaces, it might even be possible as a GS-05.
    Merlin,
    Thanks for the response. That helps. I am really torn as to what geo to apply under. I currently reside in Alabama, but also think I would love Florida. My wife and I have a little girl and both of our families are close by so that makes moving away a little more difficult. I see that in Alabama there is a port in Birmingham (where I reside now), Huntsville, and Mobile. My thinking is that most openings would probably be in Mobile, because there is a seaport there. My question is, what would a day be like in Birmingham or Huntsville? Neither has an international airport and they obviously aren't on the water. Thanks for any help.

        In theory, yes. But i had to redo both the med and fit tests after they expired, but they never called me in for a drug test again.

          • Urgent question about Montana

            I have to pick out of 6 locations in Montana by the end of today. Does anyone know which pOes have government housing for families? I heard that some of the ports in MT do.

Your schedule will be based on the needs of your port. As the new guy you will be on the bottom of the seniority list so you will be last in consideration for schedules and special assignments. As far as likes and dislikes, I like to see the look on peoples face when they find out that we are arresting them for an outstanding warrent, I like working a case that results in a removal. I like doing customs work, I like helping to get child preditors off of the street, I like anything that gives me the opportunity to do enforcement. I don't like working primary. I don't like the overwelming amout of paperwork needed to get things done. That being said it's all part of the job. You gotta take the good with the bad.
                  I EOD April 13th at San Ysidro. May 20 I leave for FLETC. Does anyone have any info about San Ysidro as far as work environment, over-time, and likes & dislikes? Feel free to share any other info about the POE. Thanks in advance.

                    Congrats on getting called. Was your selection Miami, and what did they offer?

                                Birmingham and Huntsville are both international airports, at least as far as cargo flights go. Huntsville I believe is the larger of the two.

                                Seeing as I haven't worked either, and have limited experience with CBP/airports, I really can't comment on the average day at either PoE.
