    Several are hiring external Canadates it's just with some restraints due to the budget so they are hiring less.

    Where Yazoo is different is they have been trying to activate the USP fully for a couple years and have had staffing issues so there are several more positions.
    Is it hard to get transferred out to either MDC Brooklyn or MCC New York; once already in at least? I was going to put in for a hard to fill location just to get in.

      A buddy I started with has been trying to get back to NY for the last two years and it hasn't happened yet. The holdup has mostly been due to the budget cut issues and now it takes a lot for a joint to get approved to hire more staff, so I think it's just been bad timing for him.

  • Finally got a firm offer, going to start the 27th of this month.

        Do you know anymore facilities that will be hiring more candidates?

          Off the top of my head I o ow they have several spots (or did) at Yazoo, Berlin and supposedly Thomson was getting ready to ramp up. But perhaps someone on the ground at one of them can chime in for more specifics.

          Most places are doing intermittent hiring. I know they revamped some Manning and we actually lost like 17 spots (although not sure if that was all officers or across the board)

          I'd put in for anywhere (if the open continuous still allows that) and you should be contacted for an interview

            FCI La Tuna. I am a vet with 3 years experience in corrections. I originally applied in January and could not get hired because the hiring freeze when trump came in. I was told to apply to the 2017-18 posting and got called back again in August and did the process again.

              What part of the process are you up too? You received the Conditional offer?

                • FCI Englewood has authority to hire 9 we hear. We need people. The pay vs the cost of living in the Denver area is a tough deal though. Ya can’t beat the area for quality of life, and the joint for low stress work. (A low for the cho). Overall a very good place to work.

                  • Really wish I had gotten hired there. Denver was real nice and that facility seemed like a great place to work at.

                    • I checked the posting on USAJOBS... Still somewhat unsure if you need three or one year experience as a C/O elsewhere to qualify? If anyone used C/O experience instead of education to qualify and get on with BOP, let me know, as that's what I'm trying to do.

                        Yeah I understand.. I know you can qualify with a bachelor's (Don't have unfortunately) and three years work experience in any field.
                        So my course of action would be applying with previous corrections experience to get on with BOP...

                        Well I didn't have a degree either. Just 3 years general work experience. So with 6 months-1 year of state corrections you could probably get on with the bop.

                        Okay sounds great man.. Thanks for the replies.. I appreciate it.. Hope the jobs been going well for you, also.

                    • I think the minimum is one year equivalent according to the GL-06 portion, I am using experience to qualify and have 8 years.

                        Okay cool.. I checked the BOP website and it seems if you have one year specialized experience (Police, Corrections/Detention officer) it will bypass the bachelor's or three years general work experience needed..I can always email a HR person..
                        I plan on applying to BOP when I get roughly two years with my DOC.

                        What state are you with now?

                    • I’m prettty sure you get hired on at the lower level regardless? Info from what I’ve read. Depends on what the facility is allowed to hire. But ymmv

                        I know a few officers that got hired on as a 6 around the same time I did, but either way in 2 years it evens out to a 7-3 regardless if you start as a 5 or 6.

                      • Anyone here from FCI Victorville? Just wanted to get thoughts on that facility. Thanks.
