  • i doubt it. why would they drop quality standards on probably the most important step of the process? instead, they would loosen the requirements to take in more applicants to begin with.

    if youre already worried about it and continue to, it will be a problem for you.

      FWIW, the Agency has been cutting away at OFO overtime for years. Those 2000 new hires will come in, create less OT and spread what's left thinner as well.

      As far as laterals go...yeah, they exist and yeah, they work for some people. Still, overall it's a rather poor system that really does nothing for the average CBPO.

            • Hello Everyone. I am new to the thread and have not read much as of yet. I will however be reading ALL 335 pages to this thread. To start off I would like to say good luck to everyone in the process or those who are (just like me) new applicants to the recent announcement for BPA. Below is my timeline, which I will update as I move forward in the process. Oh and thank you in advance for all the information you have and will provide. I am certain it will be very useful.

                • Soooooooooo....

                  Im not sure that reading the whole thread is going to be too benificial. I am sure there is VERY reliable and helpful information going back to the beginning but I have been reading for an hour and I am only on posts from 2008. Any suggestions on where I should start or should I just continue from where I am?

                    • Havent gotten anything yet... :/
                      The usajobs posting said that testing will begin within the first 3 weeks of December. Its just a waiting game now.

                          I do remember seeing something about that now. We are in for a long one if it is going to be anything like the previous years.

                          • There is a Veterans Hiring Event next Wednesday that I will be going to. There should be a Customs and Border Protection Recruiter there (according to their flyer). Please shoot all questions to me and I can ask him/her for you guys.
