Border Patrol Officer Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    How many days were you absent from work last year?

      A part of being a diligent employee is to ensure that you are always on time and present when expected. It's great to even be 10 minutes early rather than just showing up right on the dot. Talk to the interviewer about your attendance.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I had zero unexcused absences last year. In total, I took 12 vacation days out of my 15 allotted days. I was sick just 2, and those were accompanied by a note from my doctor. Once I was late due to a terrible snow storm, and I always try to be 10 minutes early for my shift."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I cannot recall the exact number, but I think it was around three days total. All absences were excused and with notice."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I think I missed ten days, counting vacation time. Of those, five were for my vacation. For three days, I was excused under a doctor's note. The other two absences were pre-approved family days."
