  • I’ve had my application in for 2 years. Best qualified and everything. My background investigation just cleared with CBP last Wednesday and the next day I got an email to schedule an interview for FCI Berlin. Haha. Go figure. 2 years too late because I’m going to accept the CBP job. So FCI Berlin might be a good spot to try to get in before the announcement closes soon. I had a couple of old friends work there for a few years before transferring back to the area.

      Thinking about it. I’m with DOD right now and it’s not horrible. Gonna switch over to the prison in a few years if we don’t have gl pay, ssr or 6c retirement by then. 4/3 8’s is too good of a schedule to give up

      Apparently the polygraph is a huge deal with CBP. The failure rate is around %60 and they are thinking of waiving it because it is preventing them from getting staff. On a side note - the local police department in my county has an %80 failure rate for its polygraph and its causing them staff shortages as well. I wonder why polygraphs are still used to screen for employment....

      The only waiver for CBP right now is for LE that have taken and passed a poly and Military that hold a top secret clearance. Maybe something else I can’t remember at the moment. That’s if they want to approve the waiver.

  • Any word on what is going on with the Yazoo or any other facility?

      Wondering the same thing,I’d like to get on somewhere before the end of summer.

  • Does anyone know when BOP will start the next hiring cycle. I noticed usajobs didn't posted a new job announcement after the previous one that closed yesterday.

      I'd give it a couple days and there will probably be another (as usual) open announcement for a year. I was told at work that even after the new mannig restructure Florence has to hire 30 to get to the new number.

      Good luck

        Yazoo I’m sure will be hiring soon because they will be trying to fully open the pen again.

        Yes. The old list is most likely purged.

    • We just got word yesterday that we have 2 hacks starting in April and 2 more shortly after. First guys we have hired since Dec. 2016. Probably be another year before we hire again.

            • Coleman needs a lot of officers it seems. They have 20 vacancies for GL-07 and 35 for GL-08. I was thinking of transferring because I know they have a SORT and the only reason I’d like to stay in the BOP is to be on a SORT.

              Does anyone have any insight on SORT? Nobody at my institution seems to know that much about it. I have a very strong tactical background and I was wondering if it’s worth staying for or should I just to go to another agency (which is what I’m in the process of doing).

                SORT is a good way to get some good high speed training and increase your promotion potential in the BOP. With that being said coming from a Complex with a SORT team, join DCT.

                SORT training is actually pretty legit. But still, go to another agency.

              Those openings are only for current workers. We need facilities that will hire new comers.

                I totally understand those openings are for current workers, but doesn't that means a total of 55 vacancies for regular CO's GL-5 and GL-6 is going to be available for new comer with the new advertising or do they plan on cutting those position, please correct me if I'm wrong. Also if anyone knows of any Coleman CO's that can give some intel on this matter please advise. Thanks... I have my app submitted (Coleman 1st choice) and I have been considered best qualified on my NOR. I am a 15 year Marine VET over 30% compensation and I am currently a CO Sgt. for the State of Florida.

                Just an FYI you have to read the "who may apply" section. When a spot for a CO is listed as a Senior Officer of GL 7 its usually listed as BoP Reassingment Elegibles. ThatTis jargin for they want BIPBto layerally move there that can step in and work. In the case of Senior Officer Specialist GL 8 spots it's basically an internal local commuting area only for promotions. GL 8 SOS is a competitive promotion and the highest Officer spot before GL 9 LT.

                    Just an FYI, jails are local lock ups. The BOP runs prisons, prisons generally hold those sentanced to more than one year FEDERAL confinement. Our Detention centers (often called jails), hold pre trial federal inmates.
                    Knowing the lingo of the trade you seek can help. Good luck.

                    Lewisburg or Allenwood (PA) are your best bets.
