    • Thanks for the replies guys. I sent off my TSL package today.

      My dogs are what keep me sane and I'm sure that if push came to shove, I could hire one of those people that come to your house to feed and walk your dogs.

      • Yeah, you can always find a neighborhood kid you can pay a few bucks a week to walk him and feed him.

        • With the new hiring push, how many are they seriously looking to fulfill out of the 1000 new jobs created by the bill Obama signed? I assume there is an existing list of those eligible for hire that will push through first...anyone have any idea how many people are already on that list?

          The local, county, and state agencies are hiring none right now...times are so bad some of them even shut down their reserve programs.

          • BP is taking 100,000 applications before they close down. Not aware how many are in the pool already. But I took the CBPO exam back in Arpil 2009 and haven't heard a damn thing yet other than passing it. But BP is getting more competitive now because they've changed their physical fitness demands. You have to now run 1.5 miles before going to the academy and 20 push-ups. A lot of people can't run or do 20 push-ups.

            • Dont forget, the written test is only the beginning, And more than likely you will get stuck in a small no name town in the middle of nowhere

                • That's not an article about the life of a Border Patrol Agent. That's an article about a choice made by two agents.

                  • Just took the test. Harder than I expected, but still nowhere near as bad as the TEA.

                        He is probably just trying to scare folks and thin out the herd of applicants. Classy.

                          Just ran into the article and I thought some folks would like to read it. No hidden agenda here.

                            Yea, I've been studying for my test Aug 30. The ALT is more difficult than I expected. I keep messing up on just a couple of rules but I should have it down by the 30th. I'm assuming you passed or do you not know your results yet?

                              It will be a few weeks before I know the results. Good luck on the test. I studied the ALT quite a bit and knowing the method used for translation and the rules will truly help you. I finished with only a couple of minutes to spare.

                                Agreed. I wasn't feeling to strong about my spanish abilities so I opted for the artifical language test. At first I was like FML, but once I got through the first section I started getting a feel for it and I think I did okay.

                                After the test there were current FLEOs who were like "Well, I guess I can write off this job" because they found it too difficult.
