    Anyone have any insight as to the duties and training of these positions. They are open with CBP for nationwide. How is it to work for CBP? I have a somewhat general idea about working for the gov because I am an LEO with Dept of Interior. I do get get some feedback about DHS still working out the kinks. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated since it would be a career change for me.

    Thanks

          CBP suffers from reorganization. Employees from dept of justice, dept of treasury, dept of agriculture, newly created ICE, and others were merged together without regard to many issues which are plaguing it now.
          Maybe in a few years when personnel matters like retirement, job duties, authority, command structure and training, training period!!!!, pay tables, unions, and etc. get worked out; it'll get better.
          Pretty much investigators and border patrol came out good with the reorganizations. All others got screwed or will be screwed soon. Most new hires are hired as NON-BARGAINING employees meaning no union representation. If you are hauled in for questioning, you can't request unions reps or any other help unless you wanna pay yourself.
          Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your point of view, I make too much money and no one screws with me personally, so i'll have to just tough it out.

            Thanks for the info. Yeah, I understand the problems with CBP. I have my gripes with my current agency, maybe not to the same degree of CBP but I do get the picture. I don't have a union rep but I do have a legal coverage plan that I pay for myself, would never go without it. Who would you have to cover yourself with CBP if you were to pay for it out of your pocket?

            Thanks again

              It is a dispatcher for CBP. Pretty easy gig from what I hear but there is not much room for advancement and I think it tops out pretty low for pay.

                GS11 is low? You can always apply for supervisory positions.
                That's what they do, it's a trailer park.

                  I'm in the process for SES and the highest you can go is GS9. I don't know how to apply for supervisor positions unless it is posted that you can go above GS9!

                    My understanding is that GS-11 is available at certain locations.
