Maybe you would like to be much more specific. This is a very big question.

I got worked with them regularly for inter ministry ops. What you wanna know exactly? Maybe I can share with you their office hours and training and even remuneration package but nothing more. You SO or JO first?

I got offered higher customs officer (so definitely JO). But that's all I know for now. Went for medical. They just called that they are processing and will get back to me latest 2 weeks time.

During the interview they did mention about the 3 yrs job rotation. And they did hint I'd probably be getting into either enforcement or checkpoints. So I was wondering about the job scope wise. What will I be doing? Cuz I don't know anyone in customs. I only have family and friends in ICA and Police.

Ok guys, just asked my customs friends few days back

Tiagong SO and JO training all is OJT nowadays. Get posting then start work liao. Difference is SO high chance go HQ do policy or work with companies. JO high chance go for enforcement or checkpoints.

Pay wise, SO should be low to mid 3s depending on honours. JO is low to mid 2s depending on age and work experience.

Confirm JO posting.
Medical is standard for CS.

I worked with the enforcement folks most of the time. Hardcore unit is go Geylang catch illegal cig peddlers. If not go to heartland estate and fine people who smoke illegal cig. Else kena be an IO, after ops finish you clear paperwork.

Checkpoints work is go process GST liao. You go Woodlands got red lane. You go Changi got refund office.

Hi. I applied for the the custom officer position since beginning of the year and it has been 5 weeks but still no reply. (Status still ‘submitted’). Does it usually take this long or i kena rejected already?
