creepiest thing, or funniest think that ever happened on the job?Creepiest might be some of the sex offenders/criminals/weird guys coming back from some questionable countries that are known for sex trafficking. You can tell me you frequently go to the Phillipines, Vietnam, eastern Europe for business, but I'm going to assume it's sex based due to your looks and personality. Some of the sad stories you hear from the guys who worked the Mexican border regarding smuggling will piss you off too.
How would one get into this type of career? I am currently a Security Guard who is looking to further my career path.Most of our recent hires were prior security guards, TSA, LEO's, airline workers, military, bachelor's degree.
I just read this interesting story (http://www.texasobserver.org/homeland-security-corruption-border-patrol/) about agent corruption on the southern border - have you seen or heard of this type of activity amongst your coworkers? Not necessarily asking for details that might be too sensitive, but even a yes/no answer would be interesting/enlightening.I will read this later, but I can predict the jist of it. Again, keep in mind that I don't work for Border Patrol, but the premise is the same. We have our own wall of shame online that we can see when we are at work (private intranet). The majority of guys who show up on this list work on the southern border. I wouldn't say it's a big problem at the airports in the U.S., but it's definitely something that has happened. Take a bribe just once, and someone owns you. Not worth it to lose your great paying job and pension.
What's your opinion on "Trusted Traveller" programs like Global Entry? Does it make your job easier? On a related note, what the hell do you use the fancy Global Entry card for? I've never seen it required anywhere and everything seems linked to my passport.Best $100 you'll ever spend as a traveler. It makes my job easier as those who have it, generally, are people who speak english, know their way around an airport, don't break rules, are easy to work with. That said, some of those "trusted travelers" can't be a pain to work with. I can inspect their bags, I can ask them questions, but some people are under the assumption that they are immune from your powers and will let you know it.
