    Seniority means nothing until you get through your first year but to answer your question YES! Since there is not a steady stream of BOP staff lateraling in and custody folks getting jobs in other departments it would go up pretty good however last time I was at Victorville they had 3 separate custody rosters. 1 for each facility. Some complex's have a "complex Roster" where you can cop out for any of the institutions. That helps on the seniority going up a little.

      Cool. We were told that as soon as they cut us loose we will most likely be held on mandatory OT. probably during our first week of being on our own. I don't have a problem with that but what can you do to combat the 16hrs shift? Are you allowed to use the internet, DVD player etc?! some depts allow this like mine, but some don't.

        "DVD Player, internet, etc"....LOL! You're joking, right? You are expected to do 8-16 hours of work. If you're caught watching movies, reading a book, or anything that deems to be distracting towards your official duties, you will get fired. Keep in mind that the cameras are not just for yours and the inmates safety....

        Also, congrats on getting hired!

              rim shot-cymbal! These types of policies vary from dept to dept. I take it that BOP is not one of the depts that allow net surfing, DVD players etc. I know you guys have heard of other depts that certain things to pass time or what not.

                qwertyuiop123. Not sure how to put this but ether you are very Naive, or are really a troll!
                If you think a job in BOP especially at a USP you will have time to watch CD's and surf the net you are very wrong. So if that is your motivation to try and work for BOP you will be disappointed.

                  What in the world are talking about with being naive?! Why are acting like you've never heard of surfing the net or watching dvd working grave?! What corrections officer rock are you living under? I asked the simple question because I have no clue how BOP runs their ship. Again some depts do not allow it and some do. I was just asking how BOP does it. No this is not my motivation. I know several joints that allow it & I've worked at one of them and the only time you can do it would pretty much be on grave. You're the one that's naive if you don't think other institutions and joints allow that stuff. How do you think some of the personnel get caught up on social media for slamming their chain of command & agency? The agency allows them to use the Internet And allows them to use social media sites as a trap to see what you're up too. Lile I said each dept has its own rules and I was simply asking about bop rules.

                      I refuse to believe anyone can be that naive so he has to be a troll.

                      • Troll alert?! LoL! You guys are laughs! I guess you guys are the very few CO's in all of America that truly dedicated their lives to do the lords work and nothing else.

                        • You guys need serious help if you think all agencies ban net surfing and DVD players.

                                NEGATIVE!!! I'm not name dropping. Since your so good at doing the Lords works why dont you find out yourself. Until then stop acting like you know every policy at every jail/prison. Some places allow net surfing but block youtube, social media, & obvious porn site. Every dept is different and does things differ. For instance BOP is only giving us 2 weeks training before they cut us lose. When I told my buddies that, who went thru a 16-22 week academy plus a 4-8 week feild training phase....they laughed at me and said no way, what agency would only train for 2 weeks. Get where I'm going?! Every place has its own thing. Some rules are pretty much universal and some not.
