I'm not an old timer but it really depends on your port. You work in shifts. At my port, we work an alternating work schedule with 10 hour shifts. There's also another schedule option available but I can't remember what it is. My port hours are typically 9:30-8 PM, but many ports are 24 hours, especially the larger ones or border ports. Overtime is generally available from what I can see (at least when flights and cargo are still coming in regularly), and yes you move up every year until you are an GS-11.


Thanks! I pm'ed you when you get a chance

I am still stuck at 43%. My background still hasn't cleared yet, has anyone else been moving along? I am worried I won't make academy this year and or get location placement.

Hey can anyone give a good example of what the schedule could be like? Some of the largest ports like Chicago, JFK , Newark ect are 24x7 operations and I was wondering if there is an opportunity to do 24 hour shifts? Like a day and then work overnight, ect..Does anyone do that? Does anyone know of anyone that does this?

From the NTEU Contract: Absent operational requirements, employees will not be scheduled to work a combination of regular and/or overtime assignments that do not allow for eight (8) consecutive hours off-duty within each twenty-four (24) hour period.

Be prepared for you training to be postponed. I started back on March 3rd. My training was set for March 18th-June 25th... due to COVID 19... I’m STILL waiting for my training to be rescheduled.

Has anyone who got the call, received their final offer letter? I got the call 6/18 and they said it would be delivered in 2 weeks. Should I email the hiring office?

I was told by hiring office I'd get a call/email with the final offer a few weeks before reporting to the port.

Does anyone know how they're conducting structure interviews because of covid and polygraphs?

I applied for 20-3 I already had my interview with my investigator and completed my finger prints.

The investigator is done with my Background Investigation. He's sending the info tomorrow to CBP for adjudication. Does anybody what's the next step? Or how long this step takes?

Your next steps would be drug testing. Once my background got cleared, it took maybe 3 weeks for the drug testing people to call and schedule my drug test.

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone know how it works if I decide to delay my entrance date and wait for the next class? I am scheduled to start Sept 21, 2020 and when I first received the call they informed me that we are allowed to delay once or change our port location once. It looks like I might be having to do that unfortunately. Has anyone on here done that or know if that's even true? Please help me out here if you can as I need to call them and inform them asap.

Also, just in case that is not possible and I need to reapply later on, does anyone know how the process is if we reapply but had previously completed everything?

Thank you!!
