  • I have until the 08/09 to complete the assessment. I applied midday of the announcement, so I know I wasn't one of the first to apply. I wouldn't worry too much about trying to figure out why you didn't get selected. I applied for this many times before and always got rejection emails. It's a crapshoot.

    My experience: Vet, current FLEO, and I'll be done with my master's by the end of the year.

        Any word on if they'll let the unvaccinated people return after the 120 day number that is being thrown around?

      Things to keep in mind on this announcement…

      ICE had acquired Direct Hire authority but that appears to have expired. The most announcement included Vet preference (the previous couple of announcements did not). In addition there are very few positions available nationwide after the most recent hiring push and with the current administration I would not be surprised if they scrapped all hiring.

      So if you are not a vet with a SC disability the odds of getting picked up could be quite low. There was a span of about 10 years where 90 percent of the hires were Vets or BPAs. That trend changed a bit with DH authority but like I said it appears to have expired.

        Dam lol. Pointless of applying then

    • I had heard there was 3-4 classes running at FLETC in the last couple months. I personally know people who are about to EOD. Might be a bit of a waiting game, but the agency still seems to be hiring.

      Personally, I love the job! Good luck to everyone!

        Up until January of this year it was a very coveted position. The job today is nothing like it was a few years ago. Currently still offers good pay and a good family life but the job satisfaction/morale is the worst I’ve ever seen. A young intelligent applicant should pursue avenues outside of Immigration Enforcement.

          What agency would you say is a good place starting out? I’m on the process to become a CBPO, and looking into applying to secret service uniformed division and Supreme Court police.

          A lot depends on personal preference. I would never in a million years want to work USSS UD in Washington. I wouldn’t even consider it but others might feel differently.

          If I were on the outside looking in then I would take a CBPO or BPA position. These positions offer non competitive promotion to GS 12 and are career positions (career conditional for the first three years). They are constantly hiring so if you can complete the hiring process you will get selected. The downside is that Immigration Enforcement is in a very ugly place right now and I don’t know if it ever gets better. The left seems to value an illegal alien child rapist over any USC that doesn’t drink their kool aid. In the short term either of those positions would start your covered FERS time and be well compensated. As long as you have the education and a few other things you can then look to spring into another federal LE position. The downside to a that most will have to relocate somewhere on the southern border for these.

          The USSS UD is an excepted position and it has its own pay schedule. It could have the potential to offer a slightly better chance of getting picked up as a USSS SA (one of the least coveted 1811 positions) than say that of a CBPO or BPA but they (USSS SAs) seem to have constant openings so I personally think either could provide a pathway there.

        I do personally understand the current sentiment within the agency. I am rather new. Perhaps I’m still naive, but I’ve really enjoyed it.

        Ive been able to stay busy. I’m also surrounded by great coworkers who I really enjoy working with. The opportunities to travel have been there for me also. Which was something I wasn’t able to do before joining ERO. I’m also just extremely grateful that this agency gave me an opportunity.

        The current political climate isn’t ideal for us and well docket/atd work isn’t necessarily exciting or high speed. But everything has its ebbs and flows.

          It’s good to have a positive attitude but I’ve had the privilege of being an immigration officer under 5 presidents and I’ve never seen the shenanigans that we are dealing with currently. Most of you new guys will never understand what it’s really like to be an immigration officer.

      • Does anyone have any insight on how the NY and Newark offices are in terms of morale and workload? Trying to get a better picture. Reading through this thread has been pretty helpful.

          Very insightful and informative thank you for getting back to me on this, I forgot about vet preference, I already work for the FDA, working towards a investigator/officer position but it’s pretty chill here So who knows I’ll probably do my 20-25 years over here and Retire but I was always interested in ICE but somethings aren’t meant to be but I do appreciate you getting back to me about this. Be safe

            • HR told me today that they most likely will not be issuing out any more start dates from now until after the fiscal year. Still nothing from medical at this point, but she said she would check.

                Its a waiting game by the looks of it…smh..The med contractors submitted all my exams results to ICE about a month ago..still waiting on the next step…hopefully an EOD but who knows, maybe i have to do a full background and a Poly. No word on neither yet, Or maybe they are just waiting on DTOP openings. But if no EOD until the next fiscal year, its no worries, that’s just around the corner. Current US Customs officer here!!!..

                Unless things are different, you typically get the TSL after the interview and prior to a polygraph (if you are chosen for one), at least that's how it was for me. Of course unless you've already had an interview lol.
