    I’ve transferred on more than one occasion.

    Any officers transfer to a different district? If so, I'd like to DM a few questions.

    hey winter patriot! do you mind if I PM you? I have an interview coming up in my district and was hoping to ask you a question

    I was looking at some of our service guides. We do use T4C apparently.

    There are two new US Probation Officer and Technician postings near me if anyone's interested. I can't ethically give any insider tips on the process, but I can tell you about that particular district. Send me a private message and I'll send you the link.

    You can hear back in a few days or a few months. The Chief in my district called me a couple days after I submitted my application and I had a tentative offer three weeks later. There were districts that didn't acknowledge my application at all for four months, and then they suddenly were offering written testing and interviews. Many districts will never even confirm that they received your application.

    Are US Probation offices relatively quick in getting back to you after submitted an app? Or do they even get back to you at all if they’re not interested?

    WOW! That goes to show you how widely different districts are. The district I hired in with liked ex-cops, half the office is ex-cops.

    They don't pay the same. Pay varies widely from district to district, and from person to person depending on qualifications. Most districts don't have a set salary schedule like the competitive service. Everything is based on your performance review and what the Chief wants to give you. I hired in with 3 other people, we all were brought in at different grades/steps. Some districts only give a few step increases each year, others you get default steps, performance steps, and performance bonuses on top of everything else. Some people that are hired in on the same date are brought in making thousands more than their co-workers being sworn in at the same time. The AO has tried to rein this in to some extent, but it's still pretty wild.

    Yeah. Feds don't seem to use MRT. My district doesn't.

    Good morning all. It has been quite some time since I visited this thread, but I am happy to see a ton of additional info has been added over the years. Since District-specific seems to still be the name of the game, does anyone have any insight on how the Western District of TN operates these days? Thanks in advance.

    I haven't been to the academy yet, but I don't think federal probation uses T4C or MRT. My district doesn't appear to use it anyway. At the state level I ran into MRT, it was built into some of our sentences. My district uses MI though, which seems to incorporate T4C concepts.

    I would definitely agree having knowledge and use of EBP will help a ton! EPICS and MI are widely used and the direction probation is heading. Federal uses STARR, but the usage of EBP varies widely by district. Does anyone know if MRT or T4C is pretty common in most districts?

    Winter_Patriot , thanks for the info! Yea I learned A LOT about evidence based practices in grad school. The only districts with vacancies are cities half way across the US that I know nothing about, so I’m gonna have to either wait until there is more here in FL or shoot my shot out somewhere random.
