    CBP Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at US Customs and Border Protection (Louisville, KY).

    Interview

    I started back when it was Customs. I waited about four years to get hired. They set me up for a panel interview. The panel wants to see how you would perform if you were hired.
