        • Talked to the lady at TSU today, she said hiring has resumed for some ports. I asked about California and she said "for some reason we are not hiring for larger ports like the ones in California and Florida and I am not sure why."
          Make of it what you will. I am sure that could all change in a heart beat.

          • So after mulling things over and the desire to be closer to family, I changed ot geo preference to NC from New Jersey. True the wait may be longer, but my hopes are that my test score is good enough to get me in the door.

            Anyone from the area? I understand Charlotte is not exactly easy to get, but to me it is worth a shot.

            • CBPhOpeful,

              There are four of us in my group; funny thing is all of us are former immigrants, 2 guys and 2 gals, and each race is represented (Caucasian and Asian dudes, and Hispanic and Black gals). We make fun of being a poster child for CBP.

              There are two or three other guys in 954 class that are about to head down to FLETC and about 5-6 guys already in FLETC.

              Also, many of the guys we see around us just got out of the academy. So, on one hand Dulles is full of new people, on the other hand it’s been actively hiring.

              Our instructor is half Apache Indian and been with CBP for 30 years!

                  That is correct. I got a call informing me of my status. I have been refered to to TSU today. About 1 hr later I got a similar call from BP telling me the same thing. God I hope customs calls me first.

                        The way that it worked for me was that I'd get something to do about once a month.

                            First of all it is BORTAC and secondly, BP and CBP have SRT. Google them for info.

                              Pay scales with locality:

                              http://www.opm.gov/oca/09tables/indexGS.asp

                              A guess...your base pay will end up roughly around 38-40K, maybe a bit more.

                                The wait could be Much longer. I am north of Charlotte and my wait has been going on three years. 91= No T.O.
