      • Got my TJO today NYC/NJ area. Might have to turn it down as I am not really where I want to be physical. I'm not sure about the maze course and the bench press requirements, anybody got any clue how physically demanding it is?

          You can easily pass the initial hiring physical exam with minimum effort and give yourself time to get ready for the academy during the hiring process. you have to dedicate yourself to train..at the end of the day is how bad you want the job. if you really want it, you should be practicing the step test and push ups at this very moment and at a minimum, doing brisk walks. Good Luck..

          Robert_212 I meant more towards the academy fitness exam. I just recently passed the step test for CBP so I'm not worried for the initial physical at all more about the academy physical as it stated a bench press is included and a maze course. which i do not even know what it is

          You’ll be fine!
          If you have any questions you can email
          We don’t have a bench press for our academy fitness.
          It is an obstacle
          Course and 1.5 mile run.

        I saw that too. When I went in a few years ago, it was just the 1 mile and a half and the CTT (obstacle course). I guess it's been changed. Seems to be more like UPTP requirements.

        Obviously running is on you, I was not a fast runner in the academy by any means (I was typically always in the back and only got back into running 3 months before the academy and had bad knees) but always stayed with the class and NEVER needed remedial. As long as you show you're trying they'll always work with you. It also helps to take advantage of the trainers at PTD.

        If the "maze" is the same as the CTT its not that bad. You see it once and get it done.

        We didn't have to do bench for testing purposes but you should be doing push ups anyway to strengthen your chest and if you dont go to a gym you can always change up your push up technique to make it harder ( weights on your back, backpack, angles, etc). Correct me if I'm wrong but I also believe they use a plate loaded machine for bench press tests at FLETC.

        Honestly, I don't know what kind of shape you're in but if you put in the work now during the 4-6 month hiring process, I don't see any reason why you can't pass unless you're ridiculously out of shape. It's not the Marshals where they smoke you in the middle of the courtyard in front of all the cute TSA girls LOL. Of course do what's best for you.

          I guess I will go through the hiring process I have been putting in the work lately to lose weight, Current runtime at 13 minutes

          If you're at 13 minutes right now for your mile and a half, you're already a full minute and a half faster than passing time if the standard hasn't changed. If you keep working at it, you can be in the 12's or even 11's consistently. You'll be fine man, even if This job doesn't pan out, putting in the work means everything for your future health, career or anything else.

          Email them, they’re normally
          Pretty helpful here in our HR!

      • I’m still waiting on my medical clearance from the January announcement. The best thing that I can tell people is this… this is not a civilian job that can have you from application to hired in six weeks or less. The average federal hiring process takes a minimum of six months to a year or more. Welcome to the waiting game boys and girls.

          +1 on this. My whole process took exactly 1 year.

      • If there is any service connected veterans that have completed medical. Can you please PM. I'm trying to find out what to expect at medical. I know its case by case and some may need waviers. I appreciate it and best of luck to everyone.

          Get all of your waivers before you submit your medical or you will be in limbo waiting

          I'm seriously considering declining the offer. Might as well open up that slot for someone who really wants the position. I met some ICE ERO guys the last time that I was at FLETC and they seems to be good guys, it just isn't my dream job.

          I wouldn't decline. Once you're in, you start working towards retirement, you have a security clearance, and you can apply to more jobs (competitive service, DHS only, ICE only) etc. You may end up liking it! Also, AFGE (union) members, and their families to include siblings, grandparents, and grandkids, can go to college for free.

          How often are you in the field? Is there much opportunity to do investigations or collaborate with other agencies?

          With the current administration, not much, but there's always another election around the corner. Most DOs work a docket from a cubicle, just the nature of the beast, but there's opportunities to do foreign escorts, fugitive ops after a few years, SRT, or at least build your resume up to get into another agency. It may not always be glamorous but there's a lot of important work to be done, and a lot to learn which could serve you well on a task force or with another agency later on.

      • Does anybody know if you currently have an active secret clearance, if ICE will do another or you they can just transfer it over via control number.

        • How are the hours for a DO on a normal assignment? 8-5 with occasional early days and late nights, or pretty all over the place?

            Depends on your office. Field office or sub-office. We run a 24/7 operation. But different assignments in our field office have different hours ex. 0600-1400. One of the sub offices In our AOR is 1200-2000 M-F

          Flexible 8 hour shifts with ability to work AUO at your leisure. Also depends on the office and the culture.
