    • 18-9 here still waiting on Polly. Question, anyone here ever apply for BOP (Federal Correction Officer)? What’s the hiring process like for them? They seem to recruit a lot. Anyone know anything about them?

        Depends on the facility, but for me, start to finish was about six months. You'll go and do a test, interview, and if you pass they'll also fingerprint you and start your e-QIP. You'll come back later for the medical and drug test. Once that clears, you'll start working. They do your background while you are working, so you don't have to wait for it to clear to start. Within six months of starting you'll go to FLETC for the academy, it's only about a month and it's not difficult.

        BOP is a good way to get your foot in the door, it's why I did it. However, the pay is really lacking compared to other FLEO. You'll start off either GL-5/6 and only go to 7 noncompetitive. If you want your 8 you have to compete. Once you get your 8, you are stuck there unless you want to do supervisor roles or other specialties.

        Current bop here. I went in as a gl5. 3.5 years in I have my ws08 now for a year and a half. Equalivent to about an gs 11 step 6 in pay. The nice thing about going to the bop. With one year in the bop you can bq for the gs9 cbp announcement.

        I applied for the bop went to a high security pen. They hire a lot esp a FCC they have multiple prisons in one location ex FCC Pollock, Beaumont

        Hiring process was done in one day at my location start to finish and I was given a conditional offer and started about a month and a half later. I'm currently on my 3rd duty station. With the bop you can live in about 122 different locations

      • SmokeScreen07 Anthony_525 My thoughts exactly. I'm also 19-4 and I've been waiting almost a month just to get the tentative selection to start! There's no reason for me not to at least get that based on qualifications and test score. Then there's this guy who's literally blowing me out of the water haha

          SmokeScreen07 I am announcement 19-4. Did you get your NOR/notice for referral yet? I got my tentative selection the day after recovering my NOR/ notice of referral.
          im surprised the medical cleared so fast, I don’t have any real medical history, but there were a few injuries I documented on there.

            Anthony_525 Yes. I received it on 2/13/19 and have gotten nothing since. I was told to wait, but it's pretty stupid to wait this long just to get things rolling

            Anthony_525 Are you DH or Regular?. That's really surprising they cleared you so fast, after mentioning multiple injuries, I take it your injuries were minor?. Either way congrats and good luck, you seem to be moving pretty quickly with your application.

            If you had to retake the poly for a 2nd it means you didn't pass the 1st one. Your 1st one was inconclusive. But damn you had a lot of cancellations. I took the poly twice as well.

        • 19-2

          Still sitting at 38%.

          NOR: 12/2018

          PFT-1: 02/2019 (Completed/Green ✓)

          Surprised how fast my medical got cleared, seems to be a common problem for others. Took about 2 days after my medical for it to turn green and completed on the app.

          Had a overall productive February... still waiting on EQIP to be sent to OPR though.

            Same as me at 38% but unlike you I’m one of the unlucky that still waiting to for my medical to clear that I took in 12/18. I have no medical problems even the nurse and the doctor said that I was perfect on eye and vision. So I have no idea why my medical hasn’t been clears yet.

            David1984 How long did it take to release your EQIP to OPR and go green? It's been over a month since I turned it in and no updates yet.

        • Hey how are you other 18-8 guys and gals doing so far? I’ve got my fingers crossed right now hoping that I submitted enough info to prove that I don’t have sleep apnea any more and that I’m in great shape to be cleared medically.

            I’m 18-3 and have been waiting for poly scheduling for quite some time. Med review is a pain but keep an eye on it cause when I finally got cleared it was just on cass no notification via email or anything.

        • Hey guys and gals, I've been at this for a year and I keep hearing from current or prior CBPO that they make over $100,000 a year even being below GS 13. I was wondering if you can tell me if this is true or not. I've been with my mind set that i will be taking a huge pay cut and it has had me worry but I'm willing to take the risk, but I will definitely not mind if I didn't have to take a pay cut as my wife works also and if I get in this job my wife will have to resign and lose her $60,000 salary and that not including what ever pay cut I will be taking if I join as a GS 7. I just read this down below from a prior CBPO on Glassdoor.. please let me know if anyone has information, oh and yes for those who wants to know, my current salary is $62,500 which is a total with my wife and mine $122,500 a year..




          I worked at US Customs and Border Protection full-time

          Pros

          The job has ample opportunity for overtime. I left as a gs 11 step 5. I made well over $100,000 a year. In addition to the pay and benefits, I felt that I made a difference in my community. I intercepted numerous narcotics and alien smuggling attempts.

          Cons

          Long hours away from family. Last minute notice of overtime after working a full 8 hour shift.

            CBPO.BPJ what don't you try to get Miami airport or something in FL. Because if you want to swap or move out of AZ you going to have a hard time. Just my 2 cents. MIA (Miami Airport) has ton of OT as well.
