    Good to hear that Freeagent. Everglades is good gig and CBP pay is very much upthere with BP. It was mentioned in one of the BP posts that an Agent straight out of the academy makes $60k. That is boloney. A GL 5/1 pay starts at $33,000, add AUO 25% and you end up with $41,250. Of course you add Sundays and Holidays to that which MIGHT bring it to $45,000 MAX. Lets look at CBP, for instance same GS 5/1 grade: starting salary is about $ 29,726 without any locality pay. Add the maximum of $35,000 in Overtime paid at double time(yes, double time)/Holiday/Sunday and it starts to look pretty good. In 3 years you make grade GS 11/1 at base salary of $54,500 and add a couple of Gees to that... it looks pretty damn good, isn't it? And that is GS 11 Rest of the US without any locality pay!!!

      As I stated in your other inncorrect post, I do not know what salary table you are using, but it is wrong.

        I'm not sure where you're getting those numbers from either, Mat.

        I do know one thing...I've yet to meet a PA who wasn't making more than me, grade and step being equal.

        BTW, Rest of US is locality pay. Base pay is not.

          I guess you guys are cbpo's already. So let me ask any of you how much does a gs11 step 4 make w/o overtime or nights and weekends...

          and does any one of you have a 10-18 on port everglades?

            A pension is an annuity or just as it's called: PENSION. A retirement plan is a 401K or a TSP or who knows what local/state agencies call them. Feds get both after retirement and they are not the same at all... I bet you wish you'd kept that statement to yourself LOL
            Got it. In private business you usually have one or the other. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. So, feds have atleast two forms of retirement?

              As far as having anything meaningful for you about the PoE in Port Everglades,
              Sorry...wish I could help but I haven't a clue. FL. is a bit beyond my backyard.

                Thanks!..Its actually not bad at all, around 10,ooo less than a PA would make.
                But again, thats 10 hour days..CBPO is 10 hour days right?
                and overtime is double and you dont have to play cat n mouse all day with the same mice that you have caught earlier on your day.

                Well Ill soon find out what whats a better job.PA or Officer.

                  GS-11 CBPO's make exactly what a GS-11 PA would make. I'm not sure where you're figuring in $10,000 less, unless you're counting in AUO. That's a form of OT though.

                  CBPO's work 8 hour days. Anything above that is doubletime OT.
                  If you're 'lucky' enough to average 50 hour workweeks like you did as a PA, you can expect to add another 30+K to that salary.

                  Most ports and most CBPO's do not have that much OT available to them as a general rule, IMO.

                      As it states in the ad, you don't need a degree. Look at usajobs for a complete job listing.

                        ?

                        What do SES do in FL? I heard they have an 8 week training in GA. Is this true?

                          Refreshing Thread MORE INFO PLEASE!

                          The last post was circa 2008, this is 2011 and welcome to the future. I would like to refresh this topic and get updated info please. Info on the hiring process and the actual job functions, anything please.

                          A couple days ago I applied for Sector Enforcement Specialist, the next day got my email NOR notice of results, their automated computer scoring system gave me a score of 77 (from 70-100). Is this score good enough to get any serious consideration or do they only look at certain higher scores and toss the rest?

                          When applying they asked for five location preferances in no order, I chose Buffalo, Detroit, Miami, New Orleans, and San Diego. Anybody have any specific info on these work locations at these sector HQ's? Whether good or bad. Also are they/do they hire, as in recently or hiring needs? I would assume they are large locations, and five times the hiring needs so picking is good and in my favor, yes?

                          The only thing I learned from this thread so far, at least from a few years ago, they tend to give phone interviews? Is this still true or on select basis? Is there a written test or anything else before background investigation???

                          Thank you much for anything real and substantive. Also I am very aware this is not a law enforcement postion and not "cops", and more a dispatch/operations center hub type job (not unlike CTU command center with Jack Bauer I'm hoping! ) SO PLEASE refrain from negative comments!

                            Still no replies huh? Well I have thought of two addtl questions I'd like to add.

                            1) Is there an academy the SES go to before (or after a check-in with duty station) starting work, or is it all OJT? Tell me about that.

                            2) Do they wear a uniform, the only one picture of them on the net as the guy wearing a shirt and tie but it's an old picture from the 90's and I understand the organization and postion evolved much in the 21st? There is a mention on the announcement of a "Uniform allowance".....I see that others in the CBP like Import specialists and Imigration enforcement officers wear uniforms.

                            Thank you......don't you all rush in now with a flood of information, take turns! ;op
