  • Iowa was spot on. Location sucks. I'l add here is some of the internal deal with Thomson. They have a decent Warden now and from my former co workers there they have some solid staff now but it has its issues. I watched several staff transfer there from my USP. Most were biding time till they can get another transfer. The problem is when they activate a brand new prison you have a lot of BOP transfer in from all over. The problem is it almost never works out with a USP as 80% plus have never worked in a USP (aka where real thugs are) and have never seen a bloody nose fist fight. The issue that elevates Thomson is it is the new Special Management Unit as they are reassigning Lewisberg to a FCI.

    So when Tomson activated you had mid and upper management transferring in that category that are two types. First have no clue that bad things happen as they have never worked a cell unit in any USP or even been inside a USP. Second is the Ostrich head in the sand type. Those types know stuff happens but they keep their head in the sand because they are there for 18 month to put a "I was at a Administrative USP to promote out" types. And don't want to get caught up in anything to hinder a transfer as they can't get away fast enough.


    Good luck

      Lots of good information there...............lots of BOP guys/gals on the forum
      I don't think this site is moderated anymore or even exists - started to go downhill after I heard that it was blocked from BOP computers.

              It's mostly inmates attending courts and some permanent if it's anything like MDC LA. Lots of elevator usage and if the layout is the same as MDC --North and South sides for inmate housing. Don't know much else.

          • I wanted to ask if anyone has insight about detention centers in general. Is there a rover or compound officer that walks the facility all day with two officers in each unit. Are the floors organized by security level? (Low, medium, high)

            is it better than working at a USP or FCI?

              There is compound officers and high has (2) COs in each unit, however they may not always be together i.e. one doing hall and another at entry/exit. It depends on what you like but starting at a USP will assist you in becoming a better CO with a keen eye and attention to detail.

            • Hope everyone is doing well. Does anyone know what it is like working at an FMC these days? I am thinking of making Devens my first choice but I want to know if an FMC would be a good place to start as a CO.

                (footnote: I don't work for BOP but I used to be a state CO)

                Depends what you want out of being a CO. I can't imagine an FMC has as much "action" as a USP. Being a CO isn't all about cracking skulls. It's alot of people skills and talking to people. However there is a benefit in knowing how to handle high stress situations like a large fight. You might have limited opportunity at an FMC to get experience handling high stress situations.

            • I worked as a state CO for about a year before I went back to college. Now 3 years later I'm working a cushy office job and I'm honestly pretty sick of the corporate bull**** that comes along with an office job. I applied to BOP and this is my first time ever navigating a federal hiring process so I have some questions.

              - I submitted my application on USAJOBS. I got BQ on GL5 and GL7, HQ on GL6. What happens now? I'm guessing my application will make it ways to a live person for review then be forwarded to the facilities I selected?

              - How long can the hiring process take? I'm guessing that's entirely dependent on each facility but I know for my state DOC the whole hiring process from start to finish took about 9 months.

              - I've heard BOP does your background investigation after you're hired. Personally this has me a little sketched out because I'm not comfortable taking a job unless I know I've passed all the hiring pre-requisites. What exactly are the disqualifiers? I'd be pretty mad if I got hired and then 6 months in they told me I failed the background for some dumb **** like "oh you got fired from your high school job 7 years ago so we're not accepting you".

                I don't know--if I were in your shoes, I'd probably look into another field, but if it's BOP you want then ok. Once you receive BQ, the HQ will pull certs from the locations that you applied for if those locations are hiring. They'll go off the BQ list in order of precedence and then email you for an interview. The process can be really quick (w/in weeks) or it can take months depending on the location. True, background is done after you are hired--it's probably the fastest turnaround from start to hire than other Fed LEO agencies (except TSA if you consider them hehe).

                Just be truthful in everything on your backgrounds and you'll be fine--you'd have to do something pretty egregious to be fired from BOP...
