      Its easy 1/4 mile run. I did it before losing a bunch of weight. If I could do it then anyone can..

      You won't do the PAT until you go to Glynco. That may take a while...

  • Okay thank you! Yes I’ve been working on getting my time down to the 2:35. Trying hard. Thank you !

        My brother got an email stating that oxford was about to pull a list to change his first choice if he wanted to be considered

    • Where and how do BOP hire GS-7's right from the go? I am already a state CO.. I think it's appropriate for me to get 6-7 although I did ask for 5-6-7. Do they hire 7's from the go at the critical staffing locations in the North and West? Florida/South is hiring but not as badly as N and W.. so probably hire more 5's than 6-7s? Anyone got insight?

        I have 20 years in and outside of 1 person here saying they hired or was offered a job (cant remember) in as a 7 I have nevwr seen it. I asked HR and they stated they never heard if it eiuther That said doesn't mean it hasnt hapoened.

        They use to hire in staff ad a 6 but around 2010 no matyer your exoerienve everyine hired in ad a 5 Last few years it went back to some 6 and aome 5 but
        end of the day its uo to the Warden.

        That being said plan on being hired as a 5 and if you get a 6 be pleasantly surprised.

        Also just a suggestion and I am just the messenger. I am pointing this because your your statement woukd set staffviff. About you have corrections so you shoukd start out as a 7.

        If you get hired at whatever grade leave your state corrections, Military or whatever experience at the door. Best not mention it unless someone specifically asks because

        1. Nobody cares or wants to hear it unkess they ask.
        2 BOP is a different animal and we know some olaces do it better (your betyer way was alreadey mentioned a decade ir 2 ago by some and we were told to shut up and go color) but we can't so let it go.

        3 You sort of have to prove yourself by your reactions. Especially in a USP where you actually deal with inmates that GAF is broken unlike a low or most Mediums. Lots of self proclaimed Master Jedi's or Navy Rangers hire in. Prove it.

        Go to a complex that’s offering a hiring bonus. Those are the ones that are hurting for officers and would gladly bring you on as a 7. They’ve been giving them out like candy where I’m at.

    • How do you find out who is hiring immediately?

            DOTfed20 2 months for me

        • Showtime0811 After you are referred,
          you agree to inquire of availability (OF-5) form, then shortly after you are contacted for an interview, medical, entrance exam, eye exam etc. the same day. If you pass these steps on the same day a few weeks later will he offered a conditional offer and to submit your eQIP. If everything checks out you will be hired within 2-3 months. I was just hired at Coleman so this may be how your process will go. Good luck!

            Totally different mission and intrview type than CBP or the like There is also a Core Values test I hired in about 18 years before they started the test but from what some the new hires have told me you can sort of figure out what they want to hear.

            Good Luck

        • What happens if you are going through the process and you had your interview already and decided to change locations? Sorry for the multiple messages, I’m on my phone and not sure how to post it. Thanks again for your help.

            well this happened to me, I applied for an mcc they pulled my name, and then never heard anything. I changed my location to a USP, but it took almost two months before my name showed u on the USP list. When I contacted HR in Grand Prairie they said when you get puled for list your name wont show up, until the hiring for that place is done.

            So if you picked FCC coleman and they pull your name you may not be able to get picked by another facility until FCC coleman closes the audit for that list. There may be other scenarios, but that was my experience.

            Standard 2 piece that say Law Enforcement Officer for LEOSA. They give you no special powers as you have ZERO off duty authority and I have seen better fake IDs made in a High School basement.

            Hope that helps LOL

        • Anyone know if you have debt, does it have to
          be fully paid off in order to get hired with BOP or can you send them documentation showing you are in a payment arrangement?

            As long as you are not so many days behind (They have eased the amount of days from when I hired in but I dont know the number but its over I believe 90 days) If you have a written agreement (or or4int out e mail or correspondence should work) Your GTG

            Hi!
            You have to make two payments towards what every debt you have. Set up payment arrangements but pay 2 x and you have to provide proof.

        • Any information on FLETC dates? I know it usually takes almost a year to send CO's, but has the COVID possibly increased that time frame? I know its a first year training, but new hires in my agency basically are sink or swim right now due to pushing the training for new hires being pushed until after their first year.

            I heard from the rumor mill that they might be doing ICT phase 2 at the institution instead of sending to Glynco. Just what I heard.

            how would that work? I guess firearms wouldnt be too difficult to do on site based on what I hear, but i can only imagine what classroom the 3-4 moves they teach you would be taught

        • Showtime Respectfully in the future Don't guve out apecifica to anyone but HR and your BGI. Bekieve it or nit, not everyone that works in BOP are great. You'll see a few POS staff that run with personal info. In fact some have such antiquated thought processes its like 1840. Fortunately there are few and far between from when I started But just gauge your audience.

          . I'll say you should be good as you met the criteria I stated earlier

          Good Luck

        • Do USP’s issue stab vests? Is it a used one or do they order brand new ones?
          or is it optional and you may have to get your own?
          personally I would get my own if they don’t hand them out, but I heard that most places started issuing vests.
