  • If I am willing to work at two different geo locations. How should I pick the right one? Should I call each local directly and see if they are in need of bodies?

      ExSDSO: Yupp, I have my Glock 17 waiting to be swaped out. If I stayed at Newark I would have probably gotten it last year. Here in Montana it's tough to even assume anything. I shot the H&K P2000 and it's sweeeet(everyone has it at my port due to Legacy INS Berreta F92 swapouts). Smaller, better concealment and bigger calliber.

            Wow, you sure want to get in to LE (based on the tests you took) !!! Getting a location doesn't work that way. When you are ready with everything, physical, background, interviews etc etc, you will be given 2-3 ports to chose from. The location you applied for at the beginning of the process has almost nothing to do with what location you will be offered. You will decide if you will accept it or wait for a more suitable location. Personally I would get out of New Jersey. I did... There are way better and more exciting places in the US than Jersey. In some places living expenses are half compared to Jersey and your salary stays pretty much the same. Just my 2 cents.

                • CBP - Color Vision Test Question about Farnsworth Munsell 100 Test

                  Hello all,

                  I had to go get a color vision test on my own dime because I did not get enough of the ishihara plates correct to pass the first color test. I had to take both the Farnsworth D-15 test and the Farnsworth Munsell 100 test. I was told I did very well. But the doctor was not sure what type of #s that the CBP was looking for, he just said the lower the # the better.

                  My question is does anyone know what the minimum passing (TES) score in for the Farnsworth Munsell 100 test?

                  Thanks in advance!

                  • Should the application manager showed that I applied or tested for CBP? I did, but it shows nothing, only 2 other goverment jobs I applied for.

                      If you click on the CBP listing your test score will be in there

                      • Thats the problem, there is no CBP listing in my application manager, but I did test on 3/19.

                          If there is no listing that means your score hasn't been uploading

                          • So the listing wont show up until the score is there, got it. I'll just assume a 100 until I hear different. LOL

                            • Did anyone take the CBP Officer Exam on 3.19 @ San Fransisco at the Federal Building? If you did, have you recieved your NOR yet?

                                I know probably not a SWAT team but anything of the sort?
                                I flew unmanned aieral Dragon Eye in the Marines and I saw a UAV that said Customs and Border protection on it.

                                I would like to get somewhere and do my time and hopefully apply for special units: Dog Handling, and anything else that CBP does.

                                Also what do you guys think is better
                                Airport or Seaport duty? I would think Sea Port but again I did work for TSA for a bit and it was never a dull day at Bush Intercontinental. Always something going on. Whether be running down the concourse for alarms, or people just being crazy and gotta take care the situation.

                                well just let me know
                                Mike
                                When did you take your exam? Are you in EOD yet? I will find out in a day or two if I am at the seaport or at BUSH personally I am right down the street from Barbours Cut.
