    Day 60 in TSU for SF/OAK!
    Day 6 in TSU for SF/OAK, I guess it will be a two month or plus wait for me.

    Does anyone have the number for TSU??

      sorry, grouped everything together. Only drug and physical expire at one year mark. Many of us are hitting that one year mark while waiting in TSU.

        or longer. There is some guy on here hitting 90 days in TSU for SF/OAK.
        TSU number is 612-467-7018 Only call if you are actually in TSU.
        I talked to them two days ago, read my post from two days ago. According to the lady I spoke to, it's going to be a while.

          edit: just saw that it's listed on CBP's website, but I don't recall having any other options to fill out besides LAX/LB
          +1

          I thought of Ontario Int'l Airport too when I was signing up for this position but I did not see it as one of the geo locations.

          On the other hand, seems like "the calls" stopped for both SF/OAK and LAX/LB but it's obvious that they're one of the busiest ports in the U.S. The long wait is really driving me crazy.

          • for those that have received "the call"....

            how soon were you told to report? and I assume you report straight to your POE before heading off to the academy right? then how much time did you have to get yourself to the academy, which I believe is in Georgia right? Just trying to get myself a timeline of things to come once that phone call ever does.

              I'm going to start a month after I get the call. A month after that, I go to FLETC.

                "The Call" almost always comes one month before you have to report. And two months before FLETC.

                Definately start running though, asap! Also not on a treadmill...theres a big difference between running on a treadmill for 16 mins and running in georgia in 90+ degree weather.

                Try to get your time down as much as possibly. If you can do 2 miles in 16 mins, you should be okay. This goes out to everyone...it would suck coming home and not getting the job because you weren't in shape.

                • SFO/OAK slowed down quite a bit since I first started in December of last year. Actually, it slowed down alot with new recruits...

                      I want PH or Detroit Land, as I live about equal distance from both. I'd even take the Soo at this point. Don't really want it, but I'd take it.

                          Most of those ports are rather small to tiny, seldom hire and in many locations those openings are usually filled by officers transferring in from larger ports rather than by hiring directly.

                          LAX and LB on the other hand are huge, always hiring and always are bringing in new people.

                          • thanks, that's what i figured and i've really only thought about LAX or LB

                            trying to weigh the pros and cons of either port.

                            From what I've heard from a buddy who works at LB

                            LAX - more hours, more overtime, dealing with grumpy/stinky/tired people getting off their flights, and sitting in a glass cube stamping passports all day, or dealing with traffic

                            LB - more hands on, less hours as of now which means more of a personal life outside of work. On your feat, more physically demanding

                              • What does the hiring look like for CBPO's in the next year? I just took the test last month in Buffalo (geo pref buffalo). I already have a background check completed for BP. If Buffalo is full can you tell them to consider you for other locations?
