    Hello All,
    I have been researching these positions for a couple of weeks now and I seen these are "at will" positions which makes me nervous. Can anyone tell me if this is something that is enforced or if you are coming from another position that is permanent you remain permanent?

    Do certain districts make exceptions and accept police work as experience?

    About 50 give or take with some guys on pre-trial supervision

    I actually had an easier time at the state level. I'm busier than hell at this job but I still like it a lot more.

Kind of like the fact that you have to put more effort to apply for this position by sending paperwork in to the district offices. For those who currently work for USPO... is this the type of gov job where you apply and just forget that you applied for it OR are they quick with processing applications?
    It's a lot quicker than most federal hiring processes. From application date to hire you can expect roughly 5-6 months.

    So it would be a good way to gain experience if you are lacking in that area for the future position of USPO?

    I recently applied to an opening in Tucson. I'm sure it is a huge change from border patrol, but I would love to do it, especially since everyone who sits it seems to love their job.

    Some people get hired for US Probation/Pretrial Services Assistant with no pior corrections/probation experience, but most have some type of experience in the field. It's a good job because your almost guarenteed to get promoted within a year or two. I'd even say it's a promotion from most county/state PO jobs because of the pay raise schedule and resources available at the Federal level.

    What kind of experience is needed for the pre trial services assistant?

    That's exactly how my cousin got hired - interned during college then worked in district court probation after college for a few years.

    Current USPO here. Most districts also look for people with advanced degrees. Hard to get in but awesome job once you're there.
