        • Florida Testers

          Has anyone that tested in Florida back in December received any information after their NOR? I've been reading this thread and it seems that Florida is not having any movement compared to other states.

            I tested in Jan. 09 and since then have been sent to TSU. Now I am just waiting for an open position. It seems Florida (though out) has a lack of training slots.

              From reading here I get my TO after the exam, should that hold me over and keep me eligible past my 37th Bday. I have read so many conflicting comments on this?

              Can anyone shed some light on this. Im trying to keep motivated here.
              Once you get your TO 1 day b4 u turn 37 ur good nothing will hold u over past 37..sorry

                I was worried about the VBT too, but it really isn't that bad. I was so anxious and nervous that I kind of psyched myself out prior to it. Go in there confident & rock it. Good luck!

                • I think there is a way that they pick females out of the bunch because if headquarters needs females there must be a way or method they use and lets say 10 males with a higher score are in front of that female they wont offer all those 10 males positions if headquarters asks for or that port is in need for females...it won't make sense. because majority of the people who apply for LE positions are males there are hardly females, and some ports need more female cause they have a lot of men.

                    your score and the demand for the POE you applied for constitutes a TO, the higher your score the better i'm not sure if everyone gets a TO they try to fill up the ports as best as headquarters and funding can provide

I did get an email in March saying something about they are changing the codes for Florida and I would have to choose between one of two: the south Florida sector or the the rest of the state. I chose south Florida and they emailed me a new NOR. Did you guys get the same thing?
                          No, under the announcement I applied South Florida (key west, Miami) was already specificed besides through out Florida which is everything else. I applied for though-out Florida.

                            In the initial application there's a question that essentially asks if you're female and if you'd consider applying for "female-only" openings.

                            That's not how it's worded, but it's the gist of it.

                              yea i remember that it said something like would you like to be consider for female positions, something like that so what does that mean? if the port need females that's where i would fit in faster than the regular list?

                                That would be my guess. I really haven't paid much attention to it since it doesn't apply to me.

                                I don't know in a practical sense how much meaning that question has. I haven't really seen where CBP has been short-staffed with females, so I wonder just how often such a list would come into play?
