    Just trying to figure out what to do. Problem is I will be 34 this year so don't want to run out of time!
    It all depends on when the next vacancy announcement is. If it's less than a year then your pre-employment steps will carry over to your new t.o.

      Hi everybody... I received the letter with the VBT results. I passed..
      Wow... I'm very happy... I was so nervous about that situation. I think
      they judged me based on my answers and not on my english skills.

      I'm only waiting for my background investigation. The investigator went to
      Puerto Rico about a month ago and he talked with my neighbors and my
      supervisor I had in Puerto Rico. He didn't interview me because I'm living
      in United States now. He told me that another investigator will call me
      soon to interview me.

      If anyone know about a similar case advise me... Thanks in advance.

          Has anyone gotten the call for NY Other recently? If so how long were you in TSU?

          Can I get all the JFK'ers to chime in with how long they waited for T.O.'s.

          Thanks guys I'm stressing out a little here. My wife's uterus is a ticking time-bomb!!!!

                I'm sorry guys, I did not make myself clear. I mean I have been there for three weeks but have not yet started my BI. I thought I would have been set up for an interview now. Sorry!

                  That can also take months to start. It was the last part of my processing. I had to wait a month or so once all my other requirements were complete to start my BI. I think now because the federal goverment is broke... I wouldn't expect much more processing until the new fiscal year or close to it (October-ish).

                  Also, anyone heard rumors about EODs and FLETC students warned about the budget... like possibly being put "on hold" until the new fiscal year??? Just curious. Rumors are rumors.

                      I am probably the only one who hopes that is true! Of course then the run time goes down but I'd have more time to prepare for it.

My answers were short and I repeated what I was saying to fill in some of the time. I did show up in a suit which I think helped me alot...the CBPOs at the port commented on my appearance.
                        Congrats on the VBT. Another SFO/OAK Applicant. See you take the IEA exam next week. I took it yesterday in Sacramento for the SF field office. Good luck on that too!

                        • I've been searching everywhere for the answer to this question...can't find it.

                          Are there any CBPO postions that fall under the CSRS retirement coverage? If so, which ones?

                          Thanks

                            CSRS was done away with for employees entering fed service after 1984. My dad retired under it and it was much better for the employee than FERS is now, but it was breaking the fed, so they switched it to FERS and TSP.
