    Newark or JFK

    I was hoping I can get input on the pros and cons at each of these locations. I read somewhere that trying decide between the two is like asking "Which would you prefer: Having your hand smashed by a hammer, or your foot run over by a forklift?" I am trying to find out (if any) which has a better chance of getting the morning shift, and which has more opportunity for overtime per year and what were the averages?

    Thank you.

              Does anyone knows how long the background investigation takes? I already got a call from the security office to verify some information the begining of this month. I am only waiting on the background investigator to come and interview me.

                CPB will never match up to the US Customs service pre 9/11. If you've been with the government for quite some time, specifically the customs service, you will agree that the merge with Immigration killed the Customs service. You can listen to the rumor mill all you want and think that CBP is going back to the way it was before 9/11 but the damage is done and it will take hundreds of years to get the Customs agency back to where it was. It was a great orginaztion I loved going to work everyday, have many arrests under my belt, now I can't wait to get out. I see guys coming in and leaving as soon as they can and go over to the state police, s/a positions etc.

                Bottom line and I'm sure quite a few legacy Customs agents will agree with me that the US CUSTOMS service which was at the top of the game has been ruined.

                Just my two cents!

                  usfed, the rest of us here are just trying to get our federal le careers started. the guy who helped me start the process for cbp left for another federal job, but he had nothing but good things to say about cbp. sorry you are unhappy, but there are plenty of other agencies to apply to, once you're in. i'd actually like to be in your shoes, so it can't be so bad, can it?

                                I was at FLETC for some training recently and I would swear it was the CBPLETC, not FLETC with all of the CBP trainees there. My understanding is that they have new CBP academy classes starting almost every week.
