    You don't make any sense and I didn't understand anything that you wrote. I can only guess you are asking how to apply to the Border Patrol.

    http://www.usborderpatrol.gov/

    Click on the big letters that say 'Join us. Apply Now.' .

      Go to usajobs, find the listing for Border Patrol Agent, and apply that way. CBPO is a completely different listing. It doesn't matter what location you pick.

          thanks gitmo but i figured it out,, this other poster comes across as a D^&* but i'm not one to start an online ****ing match...

          i started off the cbp site..even though it speaks on the site about border patrol and etc they never show different links so one would assume that one app is good for both jobs

          i found an offical BP site with the apply link there

          • Is there any way to qualify for Grade 9 with education rather than 1 year work experience?

            • Passed the OB on Friday. Now just waiting....still waiting. Can anyone tell me if candidates will always met with the BI, or if they pick and choose who they meet with based on BI results?

                Glad I could help.

                Another FYI - You will be making two 400 mile trips to the compressed testing site. One for the written test, and, if you pass, you will go back to the same location for the Oral Board.

                It may or may not be worth the drive. At least when I went through the process, there was only a month in between written test and OB for the compressed testing. Non-compressed testing would have been more convenient, but there would have been approximately 3 months between the written and OB. So I saved two months by doing the compressed testing.

                You can go to honorfirst and get more up to date info on whether its really that much quicker. The process is moving faster now than before, so compressed testing may not offer that much of a benefit.

                  In the past you always had to meet with the BI, but I have read on honorfirst that some folks are getting academy dates and having the BI process started while at the academy.

                  But eventually you will have to meet the BI. It is an easy process. Not a grilling or interrogation, if that is what you are wondering.

                    Not neccesarily. I drove for six hours to my compressed test in Chicago, but my OB was in Cincinatti only two hours away.

                        Careful, you are going to hurt someone's feelings and the next thing you know they'll call you names. You know it's not their fault that they couldn't figure out how to apply to the proper agency.

                        Next thing you know you will be giving out good advice like, yes, a business attire really is necessary for the OB, and he'll just resent the help.

                            I had to decline a GL-7 position during the paperwork process because my official transcripts were not from an agency they listed. The time frame I was given to turn in papers, did not allow me to do what they asked. I kind of regret it now. Is there a way to correct that?
