      Congrats, maybe we will be in FLETC together....

  • Info about FCC Coleman - PM me, currently want staff stat !

    There should be no doubt the BOP is in a hiring frenzy! For the next four months, the only positions to be announced on USAJobs are those that can be filled by external applicants - primarily Correctional Officer positions, administrative positions, and a variety of other specialty positions including case managers, teachers, psychologists, and human resources and information technology specialists.

    • Interviewing this Friday at a nearby facility. Any tips or advice? I'm a little worried about the CVA since very little info is available but I'm sure I'll be fine with that. As I've mentioned in past posts I previously worked as a CO in the past so I have some experience.

        Don't BS the BSer! Articulate your experience but at the same time don't make it sound like you walk on water because you don't if that makes sense. As far as the CVA its pretty much you can figure out what answers they want. (Glad that I hired in way before that BS LOL)

        And relax!

        Good Luck

        Yeah when I worked for the state DOC I had to do one of those video scenario tests - I assume in the same realm as the CVA. I use what I like to call the "CNN Strategy". Basically what answer would make you NOT be breaking news on CNN lmao. I've never scored below an 85% on scenario tests using that method.

        The CVA was more difficult than the interview IMO. Interview was cake.

    • Does anyone know how long it usually takes to see some sort of movement once application is submitted? Applied for the California region just trying to gauge timeline. Thanks.

        You can always call the facility (HR department) and ask for when they plan to pull an interview list. I applied 1/19 and was contacted 2/16 about setting up my interview.

        Are you processing for the California region? And thank you I’ll try that.

    • Like stated above, and once the list is pulled your selected you'll get that OF-5 sent. FL also hiring if your located here.

        Looking to relocate, but thank you for the information.

    • I applied to 8 months ago to Leavenworth and Springfield. I assume they aren’t hiring much since I haven’t heard anything. After searching around I changed my preferences to Florence and Seagoville as the responded to my emailed that they were hiring. Wish you could just select regions you’re interested in instead of playing roulette with 1 or 2 selections that may or may not be hiring.

        While this has been written several times by several folks here myself included. Did you get rated "Best Qualified and Referred "? Thats the first hurdle if not you wont make it to the institutions list.

        Second Just because you make BQ or Referred list again doesn't guarantee you an interview and here is why.

        Traditionally (and I've been retired for 9 months so things could have been adjusted) they interview 3 people for every 1 position (unless its a place with lower applicants which might have happened)

        So if they have 20 on the referred list but 3 spots then 9 would get an interview. that leaves 11 with nothing.

        How they decide who?....Well sometimes someone at the institution knows you and vouches to HR, Capt etc. 2 random, you are just lucky or 3 you call and politly aquire and out of kindness that HR staffing person remembers you.

        Veteran Status can also matter as sometines they run a Veteran list separate from a Non Veteran list. Which if your a Non Vet you wouldn't get a call.

        So my advice..If you are BQ and referred simomy call the institution and "politely touch base" with someone in HR. However dont be needy. That means I wouldn't call but once every 3 weeks or so.

        So Springfield and Leavenworth have probably hired since then but one if the above factors kept you out.

        Hope that helps and good luck

    • I just saw locally that Thomson is hiring AGAIN
      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        I have several former co workers that Transferred to Thomson. They all say its out in the middle of nowhere (like al BOP activations the last 20 years) And they have all but exhausted the local empoyment pool. And being a High especially a Special Management Unit (like and ADX but they dont call ut an ADX) That alone eats staff as well.

        So if you dont mind moving its a good option to get in quick.

        That hell hole will never see a 100% custody complement. It is barely over 55% right now. Thomson was literally giving away GS-8's until not so long ago

        I live about 60 miles from the Facility.

        A town of about 30K is 10 miles away on the Iowa side. A 50k town roughly 60 miles away and the Iowa/Illinois Quad Cities (400K combined) just over an hour away

        There was never any real local employment interest

    • Narrowly passed my CVA - but I passed. Lieutenant said I interviewed very well. Got a conditional offer. Go back in a week for my physical/UA.

      • Applied to FCC Florence and reached out to HR. She said she would pull their list and see if I was in it and go from there. My BQ’d for GS5/6 with TP for 5 Point Veterans Preference since I’m Still active with no VA ratings just yet.
        I’m also in the middle of USSS hiring (Poly was over 2 weeks ago) so I’m just trying to be proactive in case something falls through. Florence seems like a huge facility and seemingly cool location.

          I started off at Florence and worked there for 2 and a half years. You'll be mandated for an extra 8 hours multiple times per week. Good place to get experience and respond to fights, stabbings, etc but you'll get worn out quickly. Plus winter is another obstacle.

        Any helpful tips on how to pass the CVA
