U.S. Border Patrol

Found this and thought i post for anyone who is interested?




Career Progression – As a Border Patrol Agent, you can advance from a GS-5 ($34,005) or GS-7 ($38,703) entry-level position through GS-9 ($43,164) and up to the GS-11 full performance level ($50,541) without having to reapply. Generally, Border Patrol Agents receive these promotions after performing satisfactorily for 1 year at each grade level.

Who may apply? Open to all U.S. citizens

Where are the positions being filled? South Texas, West Texas/New Mexico, California and Arizona.

What types of positions are being filled? Border Patrol Agent positions are full-time positions filled under the Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP). The Federal Career Intern Program is a program that helps federal agencies recruit talented individuals for entry-level government positions. Federal Career Intern Program appointments are designed with a 2-year internship, during which time you will be learning the job and the organization, attending formal training programs and developing your skills. If your performance and conduct are satisfactory, your appointment will be made permanent after the 2-year internship. The Federal Career Intern Program is an “excepted service” appointing authority.

What are the starting salaries and benefits?
The GS-5 salary is $34,005 or higher per year depending on the location of the position.

The GS-7 salary is $38,703 or higher per year depending on the location of the position. Although the GS-5 position is entry level, based on your education or experience you may be able to enter the Border Patrol Agent position at the higher GS-7 salary level if you meet the qualification requirements.

Annual increases in salary.

Attractive overtime compensation – Border Patrol Agents can earn a substantial amount in overtime per year, up to 25% of basic salary.

Federal Law Enforcement Retirement Coverage (12(d)) – Border Patrol Agents are covered under the provisions of both the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) and the “12(d)” law enforcement retirement benefit. Law enforcement employees may voluntarily retire at any age after completing 25 years of service, or at age 50 or older with 20 years of service. The mandatory retirement age is 57 with 20 years of service.

Uniform allowance – Border Patrol Agents receive a uniform allowance to offset the cost of purchasing the required BPA uniform.

We wanted to be sure it could, so we did it a half dozen times in the name of automotive science.

man I used to be Customs Inspector in Laredo, so I dealt with those guys alot.

I will say this life on the southern border isn't for everybody.

At FLETC in Glenco their training is like the military. They even marched every where on campus where the rest of the law enforcement agencies there it was pretty much just like going to college.
