  • DON Police on USA Jobs

    This open continuous has been up forever. The base I'm currently at as active duty is not hiring even though they have open slots. The budget can't allow it. Is this is Navy rampant? Particularly in FL? I applied to this some time back and I haven't heard anything since. Are these bases actively hiring at all?

    They are probably waiting for the new fiscal year.

      There are no job announcements for Police officer in Florida as of now. And most do have closing dates. If they don't hire off of those lists, then yes they do re-post them. And even the ones that are listed now are a few for the Atlantic region, and I checked both USAjobs and DONHR (Chart) in a few clicks. Ignore the Open Continious on Chart, you are wasting your time with that, unless that base is in need of one officer to hire and your resume is picked up. Or they are waiting for the fiscal year/new budget. Bases do not hire is mass quantities like local agencies do.

      If you applied and didn't hear anything, most likely you were not qualified. A computer screens your resume. No single person looks it over and decides to call you after you submit it unless the computer spits out your resume to them to be looked at further. Take it 2 ways, one as a good sign to move on and apply elsewhere or as a sign not too apply at all. Best of luck.

        DON does open/continous to build up a data base of resumes of folks wanting particular jobs but they may/may not have anything open at the time.... When stuff comes up at a particular base, they will cull through those resumes and go from there......

        DON is the only service that does this......

        Got that out of DON HR person about an hour ago or so......as some jobs out here are being converted from USAF to DON due to joint base stuff......

            I'm not worried about being under qualified, I do the same job right now and have been for 4 years. The budget is what I'm worried about. I wasn't sure if the bases were going with the open announcement or if they are hiring internally.


            Bearcat hit it on the head which is what I was hoping was not the case lol that the open announcement is just to fill a data list.

            I was hoping to find someone working at some bases in FL, that would know how their department is actually hiring.

            Where I'm at has openings posted through the open continous and it has 4 open billets than need to be filled, but they don't have the money. They have also hired internally, (contractors and MAs that got out). through the regional HRO.

              Where I'm at, I come in, arm up, do roll call, and hit the road. We do alot of rams. We have off base housing which is frequented by civilian traffic and sometimes that produces some interesting events but aside that the occasional domestic nothing much really happens. Depending on where you work at, you can be doing absolutely nothing 1 day to augmenting the Secret Service during a Presidential visit. The training is pretty good and I've honestly gotten some decent experience here. It's mostly boring though lol.

              The department I work for is basically all 0083s, there's very little MAs left here.

                        That's what I was hoping to hear! Thanks! Do you know if they pick up through the open continous or will they open up a specific announcement?

                          Open continous announcement. The only specific announcement they generally pull from is for 0080's to work in the special security office or in the mangement area.

                          Key West also had some openings via there own announcement

                            I'm already in that open continous so here's hoping! I saw Key West had a specific slot some time back but it was for an instructor, which I could do (hey if I can teach Afghans to be cops I can teach anyone lol) but I doubt they would take my 90CA NEC as a civil affairs military police specialist lol and I have no formal FTO training.

                            Key West is what I really prefer mostly because of locality and having family close by. But at this point I'll take anything in FL.

                              Call the Orlando dispatch @ (407)380-8375 and ask for the CHief or for HR. They can probably give you a better overview than I can of what is going on from what I asked my old partner last night.

                              Also keep an eye out for Miami as they are getting ready to hire more DA civilian police officers as are the AF bases.
