You will be offered a position in the CBP Border Patrol at a pay grade of GL-5, GL-7 or GL-9, depending on your qualifications. This is when you will be told where on the Southern border you will be stationed. The initial offer will be made by phone, followed by a confirmation letter. You will be given a time, date and place to report. Though we try to avoid this, the time between receiving your notification and the time for reporting may be just barely enough time to give your current employer appropriate notice, so please be prepared.
