    • What's with the employment partnership with the Army Reserve, and what does it mean for us aspiring CBPO's?

      CBP also has a video up at CBP.gov about this, but for some reason I am not able to play it.

          Yikes. That is a concern. It makes sense and they deserve it after serving tours, but 10,200 individuals with CBPO preference over me isn't the best news.

                  That was a typo on my part. I could have sworn that I put a "don't" in there somewhere.

                    It means that I had to do five or six RST forms so that I could go to FLETC.

                      If you’re not a veteran those 10200 individuals may have hiring preference anyway.

                      This is just a ceremonial thing and has no real meaning behind it. It just says that CBP and the Army Reserve are "Partners" now but it does not give hiring preference to the Army Reserves other than what federal law already allows.

                      • hiring process

                        Just curious, for those who have been on and waiting for more than a year already, especially Yoda, in your experience does it appear that hiring usually slows this time of year because of the pending federal budget? I assume the federal budget is resolved before the new government fiscal year (October I believe)?

                        Also, it seems like CBP sometimes holds off on making EOD calls for certain port/locations until they have a certain number of people they need for that location (because, from reading the posts since last year, it seems like a lot of people for one location tend to be at FLETC at the same time). Does this sound correct?

                        Just trying to size up the rest of my time frame... I should clear all my requirements by the end of June and my future co-workers have been waiting for a call almost/over 6 months now, right WMC?

                        Hopefully soon....

                          In the time that I have been in the process and part of this forum, I have seen hiring like crazy and I have seen it stall, as it is at the moment. If memory serves me right, last year at this time CBP was still hiring like crazy... I guess the economy the way it is, and so many handouts to HUGE companies/banks, that there's not enough for us at least at this point. I'm pretty sure that soon enough it'll pick up again, CBP still needs loads of officers!... and as to them picking up people by region... it appears to be somewhat correct. I have seen hiring like crazy for a certain area and then it simply stops for months!... then it picks up a bit later on.

                                They normally won't change programs mid stream. Meaning I believe it highly unlikely if you started say, mid September they would all of a sudden change your program Oct 1.

                                Classes starting post Oct 1 will have the new program.
