When is your start date for CBP? Which agency are you leaning towards?

04/11 for CBP.

Depends on locations at this point. CBP is a lot more money. DEA is preference if all things were equal, but they aren’t.

How is CBP a lot more money? DEA goes up to a higher pay grade.

Gosh you better look at the postings close. I suspect DEA DI tops out better than boarder patrol. DI's ladder up to a GS13.

CBP makes a lot in OT. It all depends on location and if you bank a lot of OT. So potentially CBP can be more money then DEA DI.

People go crazy about OT that may or may not be available or enjoyable. I work 20 hours of OT at my current agency and hate it. It messes up my sleep schedule and takes away time from family and friends. I rather work at a place where I am happy and feel supported by the agency. Money does not buy happiness. Getting an offer for the January DEA class on the other hand and with my preferred location.... lol. That would make me very happy.

Nice Congratz Shadow Storm!

When did you apply?
And if you don’t mind, when you got the pref sheet, was it broken down by specific offices (e.g. residencies, HQ, etc.) Or was it by Divisions,
