    So apparently the hiring center is not giving any final offer calls for now because all academy dates up until March 2022 have been filled. Idk if this is true but it’s what I heard just curious if anyone had heard any other news or has any other updates?
    thanks!

    Seniority...as defined by the CBA.

    "(1) For GS-1895 CBP Officers, the total time an employee has served as a GS-1895 CBP Officer, including Canine and Enforcement, and any time served as a Customs Inspector in the heritage U.S. Customs Service or as an Immigration Inspector in the heritage Immigration and Naturalization Service, including Canine and Enforcement. For GS-401 CBP Agricultural Specialists, the total time the employee has served as a GS-401 CBP Agricultural Specialist, including Canine, and any time served as a PPQ Officer, including Canine, in
    the heritage Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

    (2) In the event it is necessary to resolve ties after step (1), the total time an employee has served in CBP and heritage agency, regardless of position, will be used. For example, the time a current GS-1895 CBP Officer spent as a PPQ Officer at APHIS will count towards seniority in this step.

    (3) In the event it is necessary to resolve ties after step (2), the total time in Federal government service (i.e., SCD) will be used.

    (4) In the event it is necessary to resolve ties after step (3), the methodology provided by the local NTEU Chapter President for the port of entry will be used. Such methodology shall be provided prior to the bid cycle each year. Absent identification, the default methodology will be a random process determined by CBP. Less than full-time employment will be credited for seniority purposes in accordance with the above on a pro-rated basis."


    As a practical matter with regards to shift bids and annual leave bids prior federal employment really only matters as a tiebreaker. CBP issues are resolved usually with time in job series. OPM issues are usually resolved by total federal times...so you'd keep those advantages.

    merlin436 seniority would be something I’d be interested in knowing how it works.I am a current federal employee. I am approaching 5 years of service already. I know we keep out sick time and vacation. But I know we keep our EOD date, but in regards to shift bids and stuff I wonder if it helps

    In reality, the difference between a GS-05 and a GS-09 is two years working. One question to be asked is losing the seniority of being hired much quicker worth a potential few thousand in extra money. That seniority pays for many perks over the years, like bid shifts and annual leave bids.

    I wouldn't want to be the GS-11 working midnights and having to take vacation in February while the handful of GS-07s hired two weeks ahead of me work day shifts and vacation in July because they have two weeks seniority on me.

    Mike2686 Bachelor degree in any field with gpa 3.0 or higher would qualify you a GS7, master degree in criminology field and/or atleast 2 years experience in law enforcement would qualify you for GS9,or a veteran would also qualify you gs9. you mentioned you have been in process since 2018, Idk I would want to reapply and risk they are pushing my app back of the line... if anything, wait till after polygraph to reapply for higher GS man, your polygraph is near... A friend of my (gs5) 19-3 just took polygraph... good luck man,

    inspections work at borders, seaports, airports or other ports of entry and/or work involving preliminary screening of persons for entry and immigration status

    Experience must demonstrate the ability to apply specialized knowledge of laws, regulations, and procedures for importing and exporting merchandise to and from the United States and/or law enforcement work at the local, state or federal levels that included dealing with persons suspected of entering the U.S. illegally.

    OR compliance/regulatory work

    Experience must have demonstrated the ability to collect, develop, and evaluate facts, evidence, and pertinent data in assessing compliance with, or in violation(s) of laws, rules, or regulations.


    That appears to be the GS-07 qualifications. Or at least was the qualifications at one point.

    Apply for BPA. I finished the process as a CBPO within a year because I was already in the BPA process.

    if you are going by education then you qualify for GS7 with a bachelor's degree and GS9 with a master's in certain fields like criminology.
    I know someone who qualified for GS9 with a background in private security because his resume showed he did law enforcement related tasks while working side by side with CBP

    One can qualify for a GS-09 based solely on education...I believe.

    The qualifications are usually pretty straight forward and often vary by announcement. The key, as always, is the résumé. Those hiring folks interpret résumés religiously and they aren't known for drawing outside the lines.

    Question,

    I qualified for GS5.
    From my understanding to qualify for GS9 you need to have law enforcement background?
    if so, I’ve always seen online how people say if you word your resume the right way you will qualify for GS9?

    if that’s the case what’s the qualification for GS7?
    I know it’s online but sometimes it’s a little subjective. The interpretation.
    map how is it really?

    They never contacted me. I emailed them every time. And got the same response. That it’s backed up and I’m going to be contacted when being scheduled.

    honestly I think it’s going by which GS level you qualified for. I qualified for GS5. However, I’ve been seeing people in other groups on FB get hired. Mostly GS7 or GS9. So I’m guessing they going to do those first. Then get down to GS5. I don’t know honestly. That’s the trend I’m seeing. I’m 19-2 and I applied in Nov 2018. so this is crazy long wait. I’m hoping that since borders are opening up more. That they will hire more officers for all pay bands. But who knows.
