    But i got the call today for BP EOD 05/25/09 CBPO is my first choice but something is something !
    Once you complete the BP academy Customs should call offering a position. You would have to go though the Customs academy in GA.

      I think I did "ok", I'm 99% sure I passed... but with what score, I have no idea.

      It was amazing to me the number of people that were completely clueless about the position. More than half the room assumed we were done after the math section. I think I saw one person in a suit, most in jeans and a tshirt.. then lots of hats on backwards, flip flops, etc...

      Well that's my long exam story! Now to sit and wait!
      Wow..you have one heck of a day...glad your test went ok, well a suit? i don't know about that seems like he was over dressed...and hats and flip flops they don't really judge you on how you dress to take the test but maybe they could of worn it differently. A lot of the folks that are applying now are those that lost their jobs cause of the economy that's why the announcement was closed early and they are clueless of things right now all they want is a job. And I think DHS has no idea what's going on either.

            I just applied also. I just saved it to my computer. You hit the print button and when it comes up just save it to your computer. This test looks a lot like the ISO one was and a lot easier then the CBP one. But I have nothing to base that on.

              • Just an update about getting removed from TSU.....They took me out because they needed a form from my current Federal employer in order to base my salary. They received that form on Monday and said that I should go back into TSU soon. My luck that means I lose all seniority in TSU.......

                  I have taken both. The IEA test is the CBP test minus the math and writing ability portions. The Logical reasoning portions are almost identical, with different questions of course.

                  Since the CBP test has 2 additional parts, it is much longer.

                              What you wear on test day has 0% to do with getting this job. I'm sure if you ware a F the police t shirt, they might kick you out of the test, but other than that, the GS 7 giving the test has nothing to do with the hiring process. They are just test proctors.

                              I wore jeans and t shirt.
