    Yes, We have had folks getbother jobs within the institution before their year Doing a lateral while there might have been one or 2 he last 20 years just do not happen as that is usually listed as a no go in any job announcement. But inhouse stuff yeah

    Now wether the Warden selects them and plays a shell game is another story

        You go in to take a computer test. If you pass you do an interview with a Lt an hr person and possibly the deputy warden. If you get through that, you do your physical in the same building on a different floor. Make sure to get your equip done asap.

        I don’t work at MCC, but I do work in the NER. We get emails pretty regularly looking for volunteers for temporary reassignment to MCC New York to help alleviate staffing issues and overtime mandates for their officers, so that should give you an indicator. If you start working there, you’re probably going to be working a considerable amount of OT - whether you want to or not. I can’t speak to morale since I don’t work there, but I’ve been told the constant overtime mandates and additional scrutiny in the wake of the high profile inmate that was recently found hanging there have really been taking a toll. But get your foot in the door and after your probationary year you have 120-something other options of facilities around the country to transfer to. Good luck.

    • Anyone know what it's like at FCI Herlong? I put them as my second preference to increase chances of getting hired quicker. They just sent me a recruitment letter saying that they need 30 COs and for me to change them to my #1 preference if I'm still interested.

      Is it worth it? What is the hiring process like?

        Not sure if you're still interested in Herlong, but I knew a few dudes that transferred from there. I guess the joint is pretty isolated. Most people that work there live in Reno. A lot of people get their start there and transfer out. They have a hard time staffing the joint.

    • Hoping to hear something soon, in September HR sent an generic Email to all the applicants saying to apply to the new posting and that they would be getting a list of qualified candidates around Mid October and that they are looking to hire new Officers. Fingers crossed... and yes my app says “Best Qualified”.

      Also does anyone have any leads State wise for the North East (Connecticut, Jersey, Mass, Rhode Island) on when they are opening up State Correction job postings?

      thanks

      • My USA jobs status changed to "Hired" last Thursday. Does anyone know what a "Hired" status means? According to USA jobs the status means I've accepted the position. But I haven't even gotten an offer to accept. Is it strange that my status jumped from referred to hired, skipping selected? Does the status change when your paperwork has all cleared? And the institution then makes an offer in the near future? What has been everyone else's experience? Thanks in advance.

        My status changed to hired on USA jobs about 3 months before my EOD, and a couple weeks before my conditional offer.

        • As of yesterday, my status changed to referred on USAJobs. Hopefully this means I will hear something soon. I put Danbury as my first choice.

            Ok great to know about the Captain. I actually have an interview coming up in Danbury.

        • Do people who get “Referred” usually get an interview? If so how long after do they contact you? And how do they contact you?

            Not a guarantee but you have to get a BQ to get referred once referred as mentioned 100 times in this thread they usually interview 3 people for every opening Isually. The exception is at a hard to fill complex they have more spots than applicants one would probably be Interviewed. The rule, At a stand alone if they have 3 spots open 9 people get picked to I interviewe but say 20 are on the list that's 11 that won't get called.

            My suggestion reach out and call the HR and politely ask whem/if and it could gelp.

            What won't help is don't be that guy/gal and call every day or week. Touch base then wait about 3 weeks and follow up.

            Good Luck

            I have been working for the BOP for over a month and mine just changed to "Hired" today. It seems there is no time standard when they update it.

            • I interviewed for the mcc building in Chicago on September 24 and I haven’t heard anything yet how long does this process usually take? And if I’m not selected do they say anything or send an email maybe I’m being impatient I applied on the 13th of sept and by the 15th I was scheduling an interview after the interview nothing

                It took me about 4 months from interview to EOD. I would call and follow up with HR to check on your status.

            • How does BOP's hiring work? I got an email telling me one of the facilities had vacancies for GS 05 and GS 06, wasn't any of the facilities I had selected originally. For reference the correctional facility is like 1000+ miles away from my current location.

                West Virginia? Yeah I got that one too.. just ignore it unless you want to go out there. They must be desperate for people. Your first or second choice will contact you if they are hiring

                MrAce Yeah that was the location. Not gonna lie, there would have to be some serious incentives to make people who are 1000+ miles away move out there.

                Wanna get in fast put a place like that as your choice. I moved 800+ miles away to get in.

            • I posted this under the jobs forum but I may have a better chance of advice in here. "Looking to see if anyone has any clue what happens after you BQ for a Food Service position in different Institutions. I am currently a GS-6 that has completed my year and been applying for Food Service spots. So far BQed for 2 and referred. Wanted to know if anyone has any advice or what I can expect to happen next." Thanks to anyone that has any input. I have talked to Food Service here at my facility but most were hired on as hacks from here so they never had interviews and were just hired on.

                Was the announcement you applied under open to All US Citizens or was it BOP employees only? If it was open to the public then you might have interview for the position. If it was in house then if they're interested in you they will try to vouch you out from people that know you at work.

                Do you have experience in food service work? I mostly saw food service as a hook up spot, unless you have experience in the field.

                I was a 6 step 2 when I went to food service. I applied to every opening in the US. I ended up getting invited to interview for multiple positions that were open to the public. It was a great bump in pay. I pretended I didnt get it and just maxed my 401k

                If you apply to internal postings you probably wont have to interview

            • I was interviewed on November 19 for mcc Manhattan facility . I completed the entire process interview panel interview drug test medical . I received a tentative offer but have not heard or received a email yet . What is the next step ?
