  • I guess this where all those folks talked crap to me that my time spent in the military and dod doesn' matter, my EOD is 8/10/14 and my SCD 2/2/2000.

      I don't think think it matters for seniority in bidding posts..it does matter for years of government service for how many hours of leave and retirement purposes...

      Well that depends. I believe both prior military and civil service count's toward RIF. https://ask.fedweek.com/federal-gove...tion-in-force/

  • I would suggest if your trying to get on to still apply, as I received my firm offer yesterday and will be starting in Feb! So you never know when your number is called even if the process will be slower.

      I just moved 1000 miles from pollock to oxford. Which puts me 1200 from the house now

  • Would anyone know if Yazoo still needs officers? I updated my app not too long ago to make Yazoo my first choice and Florence my second, but I just hope that I didn't miss a window of opportunity.

        • Has anyone in the AZ region with AZ geo preference had any activity with their app or updates? I hear BOP isn't really hiring externals ATM and I can imagine especially with the Federal Gov shutdown crisis going on...

            It's intermittently done. The cuts were in the works before the shutdown and are a whole separate issue. While the Union is spinning it basically there was a need to restructure a lot. BOP has had a target on their back for years. Good news with the re released Manning most places are almost there and have been working without those numbers.

            While there might be some rough seas for a min or 2 when it clears it will be somewhat back to normal.

            About any FCC will have more of a chance to get on but anyone's best bet right now is Yazoo.

            Good Luck

              Also, FCC Florence has 110 vacant custody positions complex-wide. 50 at the USP, 30 at the FCI, and 30 at the ADX. However, we are only authorized to hire 18 positions total(every department included). OT is off the charts(not including bang-ins, suicide watch assignments, emergency med trips, etc) and will be for the forseeable future.

                Our OT was off the hook as a stand alone USP 18 years ago and has never slowed up when we became a complex in 2005. You can break 100K if you want. One Officer made 140K. It's there if you want but with the reductions the OT is starting a little bit everywhere now.

                • Quick question. Which “tier” Public Trust Background do we possess? Tier 2 (moderate risk) or Tier 4 (high risk)? Thanks...

                • Does anyone know the needs of the facilities that offer recruitment incentives? It would seem that those facilities would have an even greater need for officers so would it make sense to put those places as you first and second choice or is it still better to stick to Yazoo?

                    I heard that Dublin is going to gain up to 10 new officers. Although I'm pretty sure some of those will be transfers though.

                        Carefully read the question and answer not with the answer that sounds the most impressive but with the answer that best matches the question asked provided you are answering truthfully.

                        Got Best Qualified now,thanks for help. Put in for FCI Berlin but I’ll go anywhere that’s hiring.

                    • I submitted my application the end of February 2018 and was rated as Best Qualified. I’ve read a lot saying that BOP won’t be hiring much any time soon. What are my chances of getting an interview?

                        Depends in the institution if your first choice is somewhere like Yazoo city to get in you'll have a better chance

                        I’m currently at Yazoo City, just finished IF class and from the sound of things they were telling us during class. It’s probably going to be awhile before they hire again. They had a class scheduled after us that they had to cancel due to cuts in staffing.

                        Thanks gents. I put in Seagoville and Carswell. So I’m screwed but I’ll keep trying.

                    • Do anyone know if FCC Coleman is currently hiring?

                        Nope they are losing over 100 position's from what I've heard so until their staffing falls below that they won't be hiring at all.
