Border Patrol Hiring

Recommended Posts


For those looking for a LE career and a way out of NJ the Border Patrol is hiring for positions on SW Border.

FWIW the maximum age is now 40. Used to be 37.

If you go on USAJobs, constant positions open. Some offer specific postings (an actual town), and others do areas along the border.

I just applied for two; one in Maine, other New Mexico/West Texas. Just took the one test yesterday, and have one Friday (up in Metuchen). There are different titles, and even though it is a similar position in the same agency, two different tests. The first one was easy, like 90 questions, but those questions where you answer and then second guess yourself. Nothing L/E related... just reasoning, math, and grammar. Study guides are on their website.

I will say, get transcripts ready and in PDF form. Have your resume squared away, and make sure to modify it for how they want it written (they want the date formatted a certain way... do it that way).

Also, if you are looking at a 05 level position, see if you had good enough grades for their academic entry into the 07 level. In short, have a GPA over 3.0 or 3.5 (forget which, so look it up in the job description), and it works similar to having some graduate level work.

The process is a little difficult, as there isn't a lot of places here for the various parts of the investigation. Newark does do stuff for the interview and polygraph (one, I did have to choose Yonkers), but closest place for the PT test is Harpers Ferry. Completely on the applicant to get out there.

    • I was wondering why this story didn't get more legs in the media, maybe this was why. The Milwaukee man who killed five co-workers at a beer company’s corporate office is a black Elizabeth Warren supporter, providing a clue as to why the mass shooting disappeared from the discussion so quickly. 51-year-old Anthony Ferrill showed up at the MillerCoors facility from where he had been fired earlier in the day wearing his uniform and carrying a silenced gun. It subsequently emerged that Ferrill was an African-American Elizabeth Warren supporter (presuming that Ferrill shared the same political beliefs as his wife, who took a selfie with Warren at a rally last year). “Ferrill’s wife posted photos of her family and expressing liberal political views,” confirms Heavy.com. “In July 2019, Ferrill’s wife attended a speech by U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren at South Division High School Gym in Milwaukee. Following the speech, Ferrill’s wife took a photo with the Massachusetts senator.” https://summit.news/2020/02/27/milwaukee-mass-shooter-is-a-black-elizabeth-warren-supporter/
    • I have a 2010 SLT I've had since new. Love the truck. Got the hemi because you need a hemi. Other then the recall on the rear pinion nut, I've had zero problems with it. My only gripe was the headlights sux. I swapped them out for HIDs and never looked back. Well worth the cost. At least with my old eyes anyway. I did have a keyfob crap out. It would start the truck but non of the buttons worked. Don't go to a dealer for one! Or get one on ebay. (BTDT) Had one and it left me stranded. I found a locksmith the has genuine Mopar keyfobs. I think I paid $75 for one.                                                                                                                                                                                                             Oh, and everyone knows nothing rusts as bad a Ford. That why there's so many new ones around.    
    • They are pretty active up here this time of year, mating season is just about to start.
    • Fisher cats are rarely seen. My stepmom and dad (god rest his soul) caught one briefly on a Blink Camera in the Live Oak tree on their deck. He’s quick!      IMG_4035.MP4
