    Unions, even one as powerful as AFGE Council of Prison Locals, can negotiate a lot of issues, but pay rates and increases are not one of them. Is your source for this information reliable?
    Oh it is reliable, it is on my SF-50. I was a GL-5 step 1 last year, and I received my step pay increase and a promotion to GL-6, making me a GL-6 step 2. I've talked to other feds and there are other jobs that also do this. Next year I will be promoted to GL-7 and receive a step increase to step 3, unless I get a QSI of course.

        Yes the BOP has opened up but if you work in Cali...well get ready to rock. I work in Va. and I know a few guys who left and went to USPs to work and get the rank, another plus about the prison where you work is that when you go to another like USP to FCI you have me respect. Another thing be forward about anything in your past, I would hate to see another good officer leave because he/she tried to hide something. Good luck to everyone on the career hunt.

          Hey guys, quick question. I applied last month to the nationwide announcement but I was informed that each location would put up individual postings of people they needed. Well, they put up another nationwide announcement and I re-applied but I also noticed there are some individual location postings as well. Im confused, whats going to happen after I applied to this nationwide posting?

            Hey rocknroll,
            The nationwide is like an all call...with that being said, if you are willing to travel and are willing to call then you should find a place to work? Are you willing to travel, or are you just wanting to stay in NY? The BOP wants you and as many people they can get, but you have to be willing or play like your willing to travel. Keep trying because last I knew the FDC and MCC in NY needed help, good luck and remember HR remembers those who call them. Not those waiting to be called, so don't ever wait on them to call yo, keeep calling the HR dept and you will get on somewhere.

              Got back from philly last night after taking the CBP exam last week. I called one BOP HR office today and they told me that there was a system error when posting the announcement last week they erased it this morning. He also told me that in need of correction officers each prison are going to do it individually.....

                I found this on BOP website but there is no USA jobs posting. So why they are telling this:

                Actively Hiring: The following location(s) is/are in urgent need of correctional officers and/or physician assistants to fill vacant positions:

                * USP Atwater, CA*
                * FCC Beaumont, TX
                * FCI Dublin, CA*
                * FCC Forrest City, AR
                * USP Hazelton, WV
                * FCI Herlong, CA*
                * FCI McDowell, WV

                  That is old. It was based on the old national announcement. Now each individual institution will post when they are hiring and at that point you need to apply. Right now there are no openings posted to usajobs for entry level COs. We might be going through a bit of a freeze due to the current continuing resolution, though that isn't confirmed.

                    That is very old and the site was updated today. There are no longer any facilities listed under "Actively Hiring" and when you click on "Actively Hiring" it will take you to the BOP's USAJobs page.

                      USA JOBS has 10 openings for correctional officer at MDC Brooklyn. Act fast, it says this will close after 65 applicants!

                      There is a new type of assessment and I did not receive a score?!

                      If anyone else applies let me know if this is the same for you

                          Just got my Notice of results by email from BOP. My rating is "Eligible" and my app has been referred to MDC Brooklyn for employment consideration. It's weird I guess there is no score anymore just eligible or ineligible, or non-qualified, or something to that effect. I am hoping my chances are pretty good since they only accepted 65 apps and they are looking for 10 people. So thats a 1 in 6.5 assuming everyone else that submitted an app was also found eligible. I also am a 5 point pref Vet qualifing on work experience but many others may have that too.

                          Anyone else apply and get an email?
