    Do they put this in your offer letter or are you accepting this in "good faith". Basically I am with an agency now and make 57k base. I applied for Coleman and get the job I'm just trying figure out where they would bring me in at...from what your saying a GL 5 Step 10?

      Ask your HR Specialist nicely to put your step in your firm offer letter. Highest rate of pay does have some exceptions, but as a general rule, matching your highest rate of pay by moving your steps within your grade is a fairly standard practice across the .gov.

      • I am wondering what would happen in this situation? Say I take a plumbing worker supervisor position in another state but after sometime I realize I miss being home and decide to take a position as a correctional officer in my home state with bop. The skilled trades make a lot more so how would that work with the pay scale?

          In all probability they would bring g you in as a 5 step 10 however Wardens do have the power and could make you a 6 step 10 being your prior federal service to minimize the loss in pay. But starting out as a 5 step 10 is better than a kick in the arse.

          And bringing you into as close as they can to prior pay is an OPM rule so if they try the bait and switch you have them but I have not seen that with several agency transfers here.

          There's. Chance you could loose money if you were maxed out as the highest they could place you was probably a 7 step 10 if you have the experience (which a. Couple years you would.

            • I went to a nearby institution to do a courtesy for an institution farther away. Could I ask the place I did the courtesy at if they had any openings? Would I have a chance or would they just think I'm nuts?

                          • Update .. I had my interview today but was removed after pulling my credit report. Even having proof of repayment for some accounts, proof of repayment are needed for all account. I was told I can contact the Hr specialist back in 1-2 whenever I get these things handled. Good luck to anyone else in the process and handle credit issues now

                              Shooter is absolutely correct, HRM will sometimes screw the pooch. I'm currently fighting for my steps and back pay now.

                                Good luck with that. Don't give up you might have to pursue Regional, Central Office and Grand Prairie HR as well as OPM if your institution slow walks you
