    They issue you a government travel card, so you have to have good enough credit to get that. I was told by Human Resources that more people failed the BOP hiring process due to credit problems than any other reason. That is how I slipped in and was hired above 10 point vets.

    • This issue is brought up every few days. The answer is that it is all case by case. There is no cookie cutter solution that says this guy is a "go", and this guy is a "no go." Essentially, they are looking to see if you are responsible and that you do not have the potential for corruption.

        As long as you contacted your creditors and they are fine with the minimum payment you are making, then you should be good to go in most cases. You may want to contact your creditors and ask them for a hardship program. Most of them will work with you BEFORE it goes to collections.

        I'm in the same boat as you are (unemployed but fulltime grad student), but just had one account go bad. I called the creditor and negotiated with them. I am making my payments on time and the interest rates got bumped down by 1/2.

          Sorry to hear that. Well good luck to you. Hopefully they will be understanding of your situation
          Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

              The scheduling notice says the interview process takes at least 3-4 hours, and possibly the whole day. Is this really true? How long is the actual interview? Thank you.

                Half an hour. My friend said he was livescanned after the interview.

                • My DEA interview took over an hour and I was livescanned after that too.

                  • So why do they say at least 3-4 hours? Also, what is livescan and how long does that take?

                      Livescan is where they scan your fingerprints and send a live image to DOJ/FBI for background processing. It's to verify identity and check against criminal databases.

                      I've been livescanned 14 times so far, and each time gets better and better because the wait for turnaround is shorter and shorter.

                        The actual interview is probably going to be 45 minutes to 1 hour..... you will be scheduled to interview with multiple other applicants. The wait time will be from waiting on the applicants before you to complete their interview.

                        • I have done oral hiring boards and I have no clue what "livescanning" is.

                          Edit: Ok, I guess l"ivescanning" is an IAFIS scan for fingerprints. They do do that sometimes.

                          • question for those that received a TO and received the email with pdf attachments.

                            the pdf they sent me will not let me type my responses. Is anyone else having this problem? or are we supposed to just fill it in with our own handwriting?

                            Comment


                            • I dont think it matters. I remember the first time I recieved my T.O I wrote it by hand but this time I typed it. Its just neater if you type it.

                                I printed it all off and filled it in by hand. Mailed it the same day I received it.
