    Generally even if you were too BQ for both the 5 and 6 it doesn't matter. Almost every Warden only starts everyone out as a 5 even if you BQd as a 6. They save money and has been in practice since around d 2009.

    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?

          • 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.
