  • BOP Correctional Officer

    I recently interviewed for a CO position at Phoenix FCI. Are there any former or current BOP CO's that I can ask some questions to either on the main forum or through PM? Anyone that currently works at Phoenix FCI, would be of special interest to me.

        If you're referring to FCC Victorville, yes. Click on the following link to apply with the BOP. Only select the prisons that you're willing to work as those will be the ones you'll receive consideration for. If you're a vet be sure to add that to your resume and your DD214.

          Got an email from Herlong, it said they are looking to hire 30 and that I was selected to continue in the process. I advised them that I will be deployed so cannot continue right now. Just letting everyone know that there is movement at Herlong.

              I got the Herlong email as well, I had two other prisons that I picked. I wonder why they sent that out?

                      You need to be patient. Triple posting the same rephrased question within a few minutes of each other comes off as kinda immature.

                      And the answer is no way. Herlong is near Susanville, a semi-depressed town in northern California whose only industries left are FCI Herlong, and 2 big CDCR prisons down the road from it. Sierra Army Depot is also an hour drive from there; they are the areas' main employers. Susanville is not very large; if you like the idea of a country/rural-like living environment you may like it. If you're looking for city lifestyle, you will quickly hate it.

                        Trusy, try googling it. Herlong, Ca to LA, CA. It's very easy. Herlong is located in northern CA. The closest "big" city is Reno, NV. Herlong is in the middle of the high desert. Extreme heat in the summers and lots of snow in the winters. Good place to get your foot in the door in federal LE.

                          I was told to submit my OF-5 for MCC Chicago, I submitted it stating that I was unable to proceed due to being on military duty for the next year. Does MCC Chicago hire often or was this my only chance at getting an interview? Thanks.

                            I just got the request to submit an OF5 for USP Atlanta. If anyone else has put in for that area keep an eye out for an email.
