      If you mean processing in a prison in New York, yes I am in the process I finished everything the other day interview/test/fingerprints and so on. Just waiting on the letter from the institution giving me a conditional offer/eqip and for a drug test.

          Status means nothing. I went 6 months "referred" until I got an OF 5 email about an interview.

              Thats awesome. I went through all the above steps in an 8 month timeframe

                Yessir. I lucked out. My facility rarely hires non-vets. It seems like most people are getting DQd for credit. 3/4s of the folks interviewing with me got sent home for that.

                • How do the Uniform polos fit? I'm a 6'2" male at 220lbs with relatively wide shoulders. Should I go with an L or XL? I'm generally nice and snug in most Ls.

                    They run large. It's the BOP; everything will run large. I am 5'11" and 175 pounds and I wear a large in the uniform polos where I normally prefer and X-large in normal clothes.

                    I also only recommend getting the Cool Breeze Extreme polos from AD Meyers.

                      You need to order a little big if you're gonna be at a usp sobe you have to account for the vest. I have the polo and the utility style I prefer the utility style personally. The xtreme breeze is definitely the way too go

                        What I would suggest (and I lived through the goat rope of the uniform cange and the QC issues all of them had back in 2008) Is buy one or two differetn styles (polo's and regular Blue Button up) from each of the 2-3 companies.

                        Personally I like Unitech (used to be suburban) they have always had good quality stuff and in 16 years I have never had any issues.
                        But that was just me. Others have had similar stories. It really is a Ford vs Chevy.

                          What facility if you don't mind me asking. Was told they were having budget issues for the NY facilities.

                                Yes, the initial was just to see for any obvious showstoppers that would have not cleared. I have seen BG investigations get cleared as short as 2 months and take as long as 13 months after the person starts. You will be contacted by an OPM investgator (more than likely a contract investgator) for a face to face set down, they will ask you several questions etc. usually just to clarify anything etc.

                                As long as folks disclose EVERYTHING there usually isn't a problem. When I started years ago HR never went through asking as much and there were a ton of folks that were getting walked out at the 1,2,6 etc month mark. Now I think I have only seen 3 people get walked out over a background in the last 5 years and we have hired about 200 folks. Before we didn't hire than many and there was like one in every class.
