She said they would be sending out more details within 2-3 weeks from our start date.

Hello all! Congratulations to everyone getting calls! I, too, got the call yesterday and was given all of the options mentioned in a previous post for locations. I chose Detroit! Something that I found surprising, I was worried when she told me the academy dates because I have a huge international trip planned for the end of December into January and thought I would have to turn down the job. But she said if I accept the position I can wait and take the next academy that begins in March! So that's what I'm doing.


It seems like they have a looooot of positions to fill so I feel like others on this page will be getting calls soon.

For the people that have already gone through training or are currently in it, are Maryland and Georgia split evenly, 7 weeks and 7 weeks? Thanks!

Yes... it is currently still 7 and 7, but they are trying to move more and more of the training to FLETC with the goal of eventually having it all be at FLETC. So it may be changing soon.

They didn't offer me St. Louis so I had to defer. They said if they give me another offer in the future and it is not St. Louis, then I will be finished. I probably won't get the offer in the future so I am pretty down. I really wanted this position. I had to take off work and drive five hours away for the VBT. :(

There is about to be a very large surge in hiring new Ag Specialists across the agency, and I would think that should increase the prospects of being offered positions in smaller places like St. Louis much more likely. So I wouldn't give up hope just yet.

Does anyone know what locations you would be able to get the most over time and also, what locations have incentive pay or high locality pay? I am trying to get ready mentally, if I do not get St. Louis. If I got offered the job in a different location, the money would have to be really good in order for me to take it as I'll be making a house payment and extra rent payment if I have to move. Thanks!

Interesting, my friend who graduated in Jul 2017 went to Frederick, MD for 7 weeks and 5 weeks at FLETC Brunswick, GA (AKA Glynco). Guess CBP increased training by 2 weeks. Good luck all!

I just met with my BI, do they penalize you for forgetting to put one address? I honestly forgot I even lived there it was over 9 years ago, anyway and then there was also a question that I believe I misunderstood back then but I did clarify it with him, I hope it doesn't affect me, did this happen to anyone?

Congrats! You’ll be right behind us. What type of housing is everyone doing during the two weeks of pre academy? I was considering getting a hotel rather than paying for an apartment for 4 months while we are gone.

You guys are so luckt LOL. I'm also happy you guys are moving along as I'm sure some of you have been waiting a long time. I'm an 18-3 awaiting the call.

Cersei, my friend who actually became an officer did just that. He got an apartment so he would have a home base and a place without having to worry when he got back. Hotels can get expensive but I guess it depends on a lot of factors.

I called a few well known hotels and they give federal employees a flat rate of $94 a night in pretty nice hotels, but for two weeks it’s almost $1700. I also called my port and asked if I could leave my car there while I was gone and they said they didn’t know lol.

I’m not too sure. I think the only ones that gave incentives were SF and a random one in North Dakota. She told me it would be 2-3 weeks from our start date.

Does anybody have 2 applications on CASS? I applied to 18-1 and I recently applied to 19-1 when it opened but they are both still there. I was expecting for the first one to drop after applying to 19-1, anyways I think applying made my progress move along as that's how they finally contacted me for my BI.
