for the job posting
for job description. Look under careers tab and cbp officer
Border Patrol Officer (not Border Patrol Agent). Both will most likely get listed but are two distinctly different jobs despite similar sounding titles. You seem to be interested in the BPO job
For the BPO job it's like all other civil service job. Lots of wickets and hoops to jump through need to take a civil service screening exam. medical screening background investigation physical fitness screening, video interview screening, etc Then you get put into a selection pool as openings come up. When an opening occurs you go to fletc in Georgia
Need to get in before 37 as it's covered under federal law enforcement retirement
Lots of info and a few forums on the Internet you can google it
Payscale is public record on www.gsa.gov.
You start off as a GS-5 or 7 I believe with promotion potential to 9 or 11. You do get locality pay
You cannot specify to work at just DFW or the DFW area. You will specify a general location like the south central US. When you're in the selection pool if a position in the south central US comes open and you're next in line you get called to report for training. Once you're in then you can try to internal transfer to the DFW area or DFW airport
There are about 250 or so CBP officers assigned to the DFW airport
