  • Thanks for the reply Shooter. I figured the stories are a little exaggerated and I agree that if someone is able to be compromised one area then they will likely be compromised in other ways as well so that makes sense. Even though I'm at a USP with a decent amount of action, it still seems that staff drama out weighs the focus on inmates so I can't even imagine at a slower fci but I'm not too worried about that aspect. Do you know much about the male detention center they have?

      Not sure about the jail but most others don't have a whole lot of activity. Not to many long term holds there. I can call my friend and ask but he said everything is pretty slow and asked if I wanted to slowdown it's not a bad spot.

        • Just wanted to say thank you.

          I finally got my start date at the FCI of my choice, and I made my goal of becoming a federal LEO covered employee before age 30 (I'm 29 1/2 lol).

          Thanks to all of you who ask and answer questions, the information in priceless!

          • Where you gonna be starting?

            • So, I'm a year in and my BG has not started yet. I have a few guys at my joint who are almost 2 years in and no BG. Is OPM super backed up in the North East? I think it's honestly unfair that someone with 2 years in doesn't know if they're gonna have a job or not. I've heard a few horror stories.

              • Pretty sure if you're done with your year it's gonna be really hard to overcome a bad background check

                  I just got contacted by my background investigator last week and I have about 16 months in, he said the OPM backlog is way behind. 2-3 guys from my group still have not been contacted, meanwhile new hires with 5-6 months in are already being contacted by their investigators. Speak with HR they might not even be aware of it and will just tell you it's nothing to worry about, though I know personally it is a big deal because you don't want it hanging over your head anymore. Good luck

                  • I know my chances are slim but what's the outlook at MCC San Diego or terminal island? Currently live in San Diego but from what I understand the MCC here hardly takes new people

                    Is the only facility that consistently takes new hires in Socal still Victorville? I'm trying to get into BOP but I feel Victorville is a bit of a drive from where I'm at.

                    Thanks in advance to any help!

                      Even if you have a year in they will ask you to resign if a bad BG comes back. I've seen it a couple times. Guys had 14 and 18 mo that. It was on them since they did T admit to a past DUI and one was an article 15.

                      I will say I am seeing hardly anyone e getting g walked out over BG these days and we do a ton of hiring (over 259 the last couple years)

                        • I frequently see and hear reference made to "getting your year in" before being able to lateral into a different role and/or to a different location. Is that a written OPM rule, a written BOP rule, or "just the way it's done" with no flexibility allowed even if it serves BOP's need?

                          For clarification, I mean for someone already off probation.

                            It is written somewhere I've actually seen it but I don't remember I want to say it was in the HR series PS but don't hold me 100%. But OPM is also involved

                            What people don't realize is a lateral for a non supervisory position. Still has to be approved by both Wardens. The gaining Warden could say no or your Warden could say no. That's an extreme circumstances though.

                            The other thing with laterals that people forget it it is done as a selection now. Back 10 years ago it was a memo by you through your warden to the warden of where you wanted.

                            Now (since around 2010-2011 ish you have to wait til the institution you want to go to posts a announcement through USA Jobs and is listed for BOP Reassignment elegibles. And you are competing against anyone else who applies.

                            To get them to make an announcement it helps if you tell you AW or Warden themselves (LTs and Captains can help as they usually know someone there) they will call sort of vouching you out that lets the new joints warden know someone is wanting to co e (and it costs the warden nothing) and he/she will tell HR to list it provided there are spots open.

                              Per OPM rules, the minimum amount time one has to wait is 90 days. With that, from what I've been told the un-written rule Wardens will not poach staff who have less than a year.

                                O have seen frequently someone hires in as one thing and at the 6 month mark get selected I house to something else. Usually it's something like electronics tech or some other hard to fill spot provided they are quified. I've also seen some hire in as a med records tech and land. Job as a HR specialist (thanks to their Mommy)

                                But as far as transfers not going to happen unless there are a lot of Special cir instances
