      I applied to a FCC and its still nothing. My status is still just received on USAJOBS. Is there a facility that is definitely hiring right now?

      • A few years ago when I first applied I would get emails from hr ppl at facilities telling me to change my location to their location to be processed/accepted quicker. I'm not sure if they do that anymore but the only places I got emails from was California locations and Berlin.

Business casual during IF. Most folks order uniforms after they start IF on their credit card then pay it off with their allowance the n xt week just to get it. If you don't have them when you get out of IF business casual until.
            So AD Meyers is moving quickly to get the uniforms out, I ordered one just to see. From what I can tell they do not match 5.11's so guess we're stuck with AD Meyers until unitec and galls comes online. The class B's are a rip off $65 for pants that are lower quality than 5. 11.

            • What is the standard uniform color of a BOP Correctional Officer? Is it light blue or white shirt? Also, do CO's wear stab proof vest or does it depend which facility you work at?

                Line staff have to be in the new uniform by sep 1 2018. you can go to AD Meyers website to see the new uniform, they are Charcoal grey, the nickel grey is for specific post (compound, rear gate and shu). White shirts are for Lt's only. Do not purchase any blue uniforms. Stab vest are mandatory at ADX, AUSP,USP's,MCC'S,FDC''s, and MDC'S. They are optional at FCI med, low and FPC/ SCP.

                    They're releasing soon per unitec's website. Sucks that they're the same price though!

                          I can't answer for sure as I don't work there but I would guess so as I have never seen podular non direct supervision in anywhere but jails.

                      • I've noticed an uptick in BOP announcements over the past several days on USAJobs, especially for supporting / administrative / non-custody positions. Hopefully with the new permanent director now in place, the hiring and staffing will return to normal.

                          They all are. Where there is some me difference is the level of facility has a determination on staff to inmate ratio. Camps (being minimum) have the lowest staff to inmate ratio. USP' (high) have the highest. Low and med FCI's are in the middle. As far as direct supervision there are usually Officers assigned to every housing unit directly supervising. Unit team (Counselor, case manager etc) sporadic and are not tied to a housing unit as in they can leave and go wherever which is necessary for them to do their jobs. Other staff supervise inmates directly when they are in their areas.
