    The issue with places like Chicago is people can make the same if not more than BOP on any area PD or oril vs in rural Indiana, Kansas etc BOP makes 2 1/2 times more than DOC or even a lot of PD's.

    So their lists might not be the same as other places which if you have the experience and college yiu shoukd stand out provided you get an interview and oass the test they do now.

    Good luck
    Thank you. Yes I have a bachelors degree and 3 years DOC experience at the state level. I hope to get the call or an email or something soon! I am becoming impatient

    • I have just finished the first phase and received a conditional hire for completion of the first phase about a week ago. My question is how long will it take for me to get a start date?

    • Do they pay base salary on top of locality pay, what would be the estimated salary of someone just getting in?

      Thanks

        • Hello,
          Submitted my application for BOP and chose Tallahassee, FL and Marianna, FL because I reside close by.
          I am open to working anywhere initially. Any thoughts on locations to list if I were to edit my application? Wish an option was available to be considered for any location.

            Go ahead and rule out/change Marianna, it is going to be down for a long time due to hurricane damage. It was brutal down there.

        • I haven't read through the last 278 pages, but does BOP use SF-86 or SF-85? Also any info on the Oral Board?

            I believe SF-86. If it's the 85, then the information is still saved in the 86. The information in my 86 from a DOD Secret was there when I applied to the BOP, and all that new info from the BOP was still there when I went back to the DOD as a civilian a few years later.

        • Hey sorry to bother yall. One of my friends and I are trying to figure out how much we will bring home on our checks every 2 weeks. I start out at 41,187 a year. I put 7% in my TSP starting out and picked the basic self insurance that takes out 70 dollars a check. I heard around 1,175 to 1200 every 2 weeks. Could someone let me know? Thank you

            gonna depend on if you're gonna get night differential and Sunday pay. I think I started around 5% and I brought home a little over 1000 every 2 weeks. I started at 39k a year. Put as much as you can in tsp. 731$ a pay period just work a couple of overtimes to make it happen. Beginning of my third year I maxed my tsp. Put everything in to US equities. So C and S funds. Dont put anything into lifecycles!

              Now when you say that do you mean you are putting $19,000 a year in? That is the maximum you can contribute.

              I work at an institution where there is a ton of overtime and you'll be amaze to here people say much they don't put into there TSP. I would do 60% in the C fund, 20% in the S and 20% in the I fund. Personally I think the L2050 is a good fund, actually thats where I got my money. Better option than leaving your money in the G fund like most people I know.

                There is no reason to have anything in any L fund you're leaving. money on the table at least like buffet says and just buy the c fund (s&p500)

                There is a gl07 where I work that leases all his cars (always luxury european brands), buys brand new suits, and lives in a very expensive part of town. He said one time that he took a loan out of his TSP to pay off credit card debt.

                As for leaving money in the G fund - I did that the first year I was in the military until I started reading about how the TSP works. I am so glad I did that because 11 years later and I now am reaching over 200k. It is really sad how little the general population knows about personal finance.

                • Has anyone heard from Chicago MCC? I talked to the HR guy a few months ago. He said that they were pulling a list together and that he saw my name on there. I thought I would have heard something by now.

                    If it's been more than 90 days they have to pull a new list so chances are they either didn't call you for an I terview (which just because your in the list doesn't guarantee you will get an interview.

                    Which bit a big deal if your active in the current announcement you will come up an any other lists they pull .I'd recommend you contact the HR office and touch base.

                    Good luck

                    • Being hired into the Excepted Service affect future job opportunities how?
                      Does an Excepted Service new hire convert to a Competitive Service, if so, after how much time?
                      How long is the average hiring process, from start to finish?
