  • Anyone work/worked at FCI Coleman? I have some questions about it. Pm me please

    Comment


    • How are you evaluated to determine if the agency wants to keep you?

      most people I talk to say you won’t get fired unless you have sex with an inmate, but I wanted to see How the process was and what to expect.

        Dont traffic with inmates, don't violate inmates civil rights, don't have sex with inmates and dont comment felonies or certian misdemeanors (like domestic battery) and do the minimum job wise and you'll be fine.

        • Publically-available BOP policies are here: https://www.bop.gov/resources/policy_and_forms.jsp Look at the ribbon near the top of,the BOP homepage. The above link is from the “Resources” tab in the dark blue ribbon.

              You can't really study for it, it's common sense stuff. Either you pass or you don't. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

          • Has anyone recently been hired at FCC Coleman, if so how long did the hiring process take?

              My brother applied got pulled on a list and interviewed recently. Got a conditional offer. Seems to be going pretty fast. Hes gotta get in before he turns 37

          • Still waiting for an interview offer. HR at FDC SeaTac told me that I was on the GL5 and GL6 best qualified list, and that they'd most likely be contacting me for an interview in a couple weeks. That was about five weeks ago.

            Wondering if I should update my application and list a different institution as my #1 or #2 choice, to throw my hat in the ring somewhere else. I never heard back from FCI Dublin about whether they were still looking to hire (it was my #2 preference location on USAJobs).

              Yeah, I saw that vacancy too. I want to get in to a covered position before age 36/37, but Dublin would be tough financially. I'd probably take a 2/3 paycut once factoring in the cost of living difference.

              Winter_Patriot, federal gov't pay is increased for designated high cost-of-living areas, including San Francisco. I currently work at a facility receiving "Rest of the US" (RUS) pay, i.e., not in a designated area with high cost of living. If I transferred to Dublin, my pay would automatically jump 22%.

              Here's the Office of Personnel Management webpage with Law Enforcement Officer payscales. Each designated area with high cost of living is specified by name. It also includes the payscale for RUS.

              Thanks for the link, will check it out. My worry was always whether or not the 22% locality pay would make up for how much more expensive it is to live in some of those places. But it's relative depending on where you're coming from. I was looking at the Seattle locality pay and it seems to help, but still wish it was more (I already live in Seattle area).

              Most people that work at Dublin live in the valley and drive an hour or more to work. They also have staff housing but you have to go on a wait list and wait for someone to move out of there. Can't live in the Dublin area on that salary.

            • Hey so I interviewed at the Miami location about 5 weeks ago passed the cva and written tests and did the panel interview and now just silence. Was wondering if anyone knew how much longer the wait will be to hear anything back and if so what’s the next step

                You should probably call your contact in HR that you delt with. There can be many variables on how long.

            • Called my local BOP facility to sort out why I hadn't heard anything. HR was very nice and informed me I was listed under "best qualified" but I applied around the time they had a hiring board or something? So my app fell thru thr cracks. Either way I was told to reapply to the new job announcement on OCT 1, got a generic email about that too, and once they meet ill be contacted. Wish I did this earlier this year!

                Also does anyone know if BOP receives locality lay? I assume no leap. She said I was gl5 qualified.

                nonotnow You have to be Beat Qualified ao make sure thats what she ment. There is a difference between a BQ and simply qualified rating as only qualified you wont make the cut

                Yes BOP gets locality pay. Most are rest of US pay but several are more. Houston is (or was) the highest paid localiry

                As said above yes there are locality areas. I'm on a WS scale in a rest of the US area but WS has a locality pay here and gs/gl doesnt.

            • Unfortunately after the panel interviews and passing all the tests I see an update on usajobs saying not hired. Sucks. Didn’t get an email though but is usajobs usually accurate with that kinda stuff
