ICE is (I)mmigration and (C)ustoms (E)nforcement. I'm sure you knew that but I'm just curious why you called it Customs. There are lots of customs agencies obviously, CBP, USBP, ICE of course etc.

The Border Patrol does list that applicants may have to pass a polygraph as a pre-employment requirement. 


IEA's are the equivalent of what DEO's were for the INS.  The main function of their job is to escort prisoners and that is about it.   The pay scale also only goes up to GS-9 which I believe is a little over 43K, which isn't really all that high if you get stationed in California or some other state where the cost of living is high.   Last I heard IEA's also get AUO which is a mandatory 2 hours of OT per day, so with that you with that you will be looking at approximately another 16K per year once you reach GS-9 Journeyman for a total of 59K per year.  This is a great salary for southern states such as Texas and New Mexico, but real crap for California and New York.

Best advice is to apply for Customs as a CBP officer when it opens up or apply for Border Patrol as these both reach the GS-11 journeyman level which is a base pay of about 51K per year without OT and special pay added.  These positions 'may" potentially require you to be polygraphed.

ICE formally known as Customs..does not poly. This is also true for Border Patrol.

I guess their vacancy listing is open from 10/24 to 11/14. Just wondering if this agency also employs the use of polygraph as part of the selection process. The posting doesn't state that an applicant must submit to a polygrahp, but that doesn't mean anything of course. Does anyone know?

Here is the link to the vacancy announcment on the usajobs website.
