    I took the same test and received a COE. I have since done the medical/fit test and Video test. These were both completed within a week of each other in September. However, I have not heard anything since.

      does anyone know the cut off age for cbp. In some websites it says 37,but in their web site it says 40.
      I`d rather have one hundred enemies than one backstabbing friend.

        Under the current retirement system, there is no age limit for CBP Officer. CBP Border patrol agent, FPS Officer, and Secret Service agent are 37.

          I thought FPS gs-0083 did not have a age limit only their special agents did?
          I thought as a 0083 they fell with va & dod police?

            Border patrol agent cutoff is 40. CBP officer positions have no cutoff.

                you can work at teterboro and morristown airports, and the air force base but you will not see those places until you get to know the right people. you have to be on the seaport unit first. not likely but can be done. how are your ass kissing skills? ive never worked those areas but have been there to visit friends and they are the best gig for not working and getting PAID$$$

                  check this out

                  Thinking of a career with CBP? Check this out:

                  http://www.homelandstupidity.us/2006...land-security/


                  A survey of Department of Homeland Security employees reveals that morale in the department is, well, very low.


                  At the Department of Homeland Security, only 12 percent of the more than 10,000 employees who returned a government questionnaire said they felt strongly that they are “encouraged to come up with new and better ways of doing things.”

                  In the agency, which has responsibility for protecting the country against terrorism and responding to natural disasters, only 3 percent of employees said they are confident that personnel decisions are “based on merit.”

                  Fewer than 18 percent said they feel strongly that they are “held accountable for achieving results.” And just 4 percent said they are sure that “creativity and innovation are rewarded.”

                  In each instance and many others, the responses of the Homeland Security employees were less favorable than those of all the other departments and agencies surveyed by the federal Office of Personnel Management, a new study by an outside research organization shows.

                  Experts in human resources said the morale problems indicated in the survey should be of serious concern to the top officials.

                    I highly doubt you're going to find an un-biased article at homeland"stupidity".com..So it really is that bad in Customs? Is Border Patrol around the same, when it comes to morale?

                      Site refers to a survey done by the US Office of Personnel Management.

                        So the job is really that bad then eh? Graduating next year with a BA in accounting, but really wanted to give Fed LE atleast a shot. Is it basically that you guys are short-handed, or that the job is so repetitive? From the outsider's perspective Customs Officers seemed to be respected members in the LE community who have very important jobs. So whats with the low morale??

                          We have a union that works against anything that can help us establish credibility. We have a lot of morons working for us. We have a lot of problems at ports with people being hired due to who they know or are related to versus their merit and/or background. If I were coming out of college, I would apply only for 1811 positions and skip CBP unless you are over 37, which at that point you can make it work, and sometimes you may be rewarded depending on where you are stationed.

                            Religious Observances and Schedules

                            Does CBP allow religious groups to observe certain days on a regular basis where accomadation is needed in scheduling. Examples are for Jewish or Adventists people observing the Sabbath or various churches, Seventh-day Baptist etc... Or is the 6 day or 7 day schedule strict with no leniancy?
