  • Here we go again!....
    This is HTJ up to his old salty antics...
    Do us all a favor and vanish dude! For all your hatred towards your job, why is it you're still working for CBP? I seriously doubt you would pass the written portion of the test for CAPD because of your horrible grammar... Something the "immigrant" you just tried to put down can master! And you call English your 1 and only Language...

    Seriously go try blowing smoke up somewhere else, I'm sure there are other Forums that would appreciate your insight as to how much you hate it...
    This is not the place, this thread is for applicants and CBPO's trying to HELP those going in. You sir need to move on.

    • HTJ / dajob – to be a CBPO one has to be an American, yet I'm an immigrant into this country… go figure that conundrum!

        Dude go away. Go get a job that you like and free up a spot for one of us. I sincerely wish you the best of luck.

        Don't get me wrong us applicants appreciate the advice of those of you already on the job. But when you come in here and insult us in your very first post expect some negative feedback. I for one know exactly what I'm getting into. Unlike you I don't have delusions of grandeur. I'm not out to be a hero or save the world and I sure as hell don't ever want to have to shoot anyone. I will if I have to and am prepared and will be trained to if need be but I'm not "looking for action"and frankly those of you that are scare me.

        I am coming into this from a profession that a lot of people would consider a dream job. I currently work in photography, mainly fashion. I travel to exotic places. Go to fancy restaurants on the clients dime. I work around beautiful women (often in their underwear). But after my son was born I started looking around me an realized just how frivolous it all is. I can't deal with people treating clothing like the fate of the world hinges on next seasons hot trend. Being that I am in my 30's and devoted the last 10 years of my life to developing a skill-set that I am no longer interested in using my options for employment are limited. At this point in my life I just want a stable job I can be proud of doing and provide for my family's future.

        If you have useful advice or constructive criticism it is welcome. But don't come in here S****ing on a job that a lot of us would give our left nut for.

        Like I said i don't want to save to world but if I can play even a small role in keeping this country and my children safe then I will be PROUD to stamp passports or process traffic for the next 20 years.





        That is the last you will hear from me on this matter. I strongly encourage the rest of you to STOP FEEDING THE TROLL!

                • Well my BI called and told me that he was done talking to everyone he needed to over the weekend, and that he is leaving town tomorrow morning. But he did not say when he had to return his report, wondering if he has to have it in today before he leaves. And I hope his report does not sit on someones desk forever either lol.

                  So im guessing that if it clears the next thing I will hear is from TSU right?

                  • Eod

                    Just checked CASS and it appears I was referred for EOD on the 22'nd.

                    Normally I would be ecstatic but I reapplied in april for a new location and haven't gotten my new TO yet.

                    The question is what the f do I do now! I'm seriously considering not picking up the phone till my new TO gets here. My original GEO is no longer an option for me or my family. Does the fact that I have been referred for EOD mean that my new app has been killed and there is no TO on the way? Should I call someone or just wait it out?

                    Help me forum gods!!!(aka merlin/yoda)

                        That's a conundrum. I e-mailed the people over at CASS and they got back to me lightning fast.

                        BTW I passed Qualifications. YESS! Just the Medical is hanging in the balance now.

                        • At this point my only question is should I call MHC and see if they want me to send in my transcripts or should I try and stay under the radar and stall a little while I wait for my new TO?[/QUOTE]

                          I just sent all my stuff in so speaking with some authority on this one..

                          in the forms packet, on the back of the GS-7 qualification worksheet (the one with the honor societies listed on it), it states you have to have your transcripts in 30 days from the time you are offered a job. I think the address they wanted you have the official transcripts to was a different one than the Whipple Bldg address your forms need to go to.

The work load they give you at the academy you won't have time for family or phone calls, Some of you think this is a vacation and if so you will be on a permanent one!
                            Weren't you talking about the preacademy?



                            I'm borrowing a travel trailer, and staying in a campground for a month because it's cheaper than renting an apartment, and I won't have to pay rent for something for three months while I'm in GA.

                              I just took the test for ICE today. Its cake! All it is is the logical reasoning portion of the CBP Test, and that rate your self in school, work, etc. We were out of there in 2 hours. Good Luck!!
