    I recently applied for a position at a local FCI facility near my home. However, I am currently a Federal employee Contract Specialist (1102) for the DoD and I am a GS-7 step 1 which is $43,551 a year....does the BOP match pay?
    In your case you will be hired at either the GL 5 or 6 (depending on Warden) but placed at a step 2,3 etc to match your pay. That's a benefit of being prior excepted federal civilian service

              ...and with a black under shirt, belt, shoes, and cap? I just hope they stand true like 5.11's and don't fade after a few months!

                    No, here is how it works. For folks applying to get on with BOP you find out you BQ'd right then. You have to BQ to get referred so you are where you need to be. HOWEVER that does not 100% guarantee you an interview

                    Now for the umpteenth time here (search engine is your friend or surf the pages before) they have the BQ lists broke down. Not everyone gets picked. They generally pick 3 names to Interview for every one spot. So say there are 20 people on the list but they are hiring 3 people. That means they picj 9 to interview. That leaves 11 that do not get contacted for an interview.

                    Factor in that where you applied to might not have even pulled a list to do interviews to hire. On the open continuous to get into BOP you find out you BQ'd right then but that does not mean the place you put in for even pulled a board.

                    When you are in BOP and apply for an open continuous (say for LT) you have no idea if you BQ until they actually pull a board. So at least when your trying to get on you find out then if you need to tweak your application to get ranked BQ'd

                    My advice. Call where you applied HR office and touch base if they did or are going to conduct any interviews.

                    Go ahead and update your application they could and do get/ask for new lists after 60 days I believe they expire. If you BQ'd already you will BQ again but obviously if you have more experience or education etc to add that always help.

                    If you applied for a stand alone low or medium FCI you could have a wait. Especially if it's an old school homesteader joint (Texarkana, Milan, Sandstone etc)If you applied for a FCC your odds will increase.

                    Good luck

                      I think only Senior Officer Specialists should have stripes.... because they're special!
