    • Good luck to everybody that's still in the process! For the people w/ EOD's I would like to give my humble 2 cents from one newbie to another. If you already know a BOP staff member...start asking questions now!!!! When you go thru IF TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!!!! Many staffers will make light about it but dont you do it! ASK QUESTIONS!!!! Do not be affraid to ask! Once you get done w/ IF BOP will hand you a pair of keys and tell you to have fun. Because of that...it is in your best interest to ask questions! Dont go in cocky, even if you came from another dept w/ stripes. The only way is the BOP way!!! Many CO's have been helpful w/ me and my questions. Some wont really care to help but its ok because you'll have some OG's who are just set in their ways for various reasons.

      I've been on for approx 2 months and I ask questions everyday. I wont speak on policy but will say that it will save you and the cameras are rolling! If the cameras are not enough...the lovely inmates will pick up what the camera missed and will tell the LT. The BOP is huge and there are sooo many differ things you can do. I'm thankful for my job!!! No agency is perfect so if you're looking for the perfect agency...dont join it if you find it because you will end their perfect streak lol! God bless you guys on here!



      @ Shooter I figured you would get a kick out of this....I learned the BOP salute!!! They did not salute me just incase you were thinking that lolololol. I learned it 2 weeks ago!

            LT's do not take the words of inmates. Inmates do file on everything, convicts don't. Usually in the case of any custody issues the LT's are often times the ones tasked with investigating their "claim" to appease the process. Upper management , well thats a different story

                Boricua,


                I recently got referred for AUSP Thomas and I'm currently waiting to see if they offer me an interview. Can you provide any details about the interview process? Was it hard? I don't have any corrections experience, but I have 6 years of Army experience and an AA level of college credit. Any tips would be helpful. Thanks!

                  Well...as you know, I can't discuss details. We all sign a confidential clause, but I can tell you this much. It's all about common sense and safety. Just relax, be yourself and answer only what's asked. You don't need experience. You will be alright. Keep us posted and good luck.

                    I think you mean thomson, and if so then you're pretty much hired as long as you don't completely bomb the interview. You should have some pretty good seniority in no time as well.
                    Those who have struggled with failure more appreciate success; than those who succeed but never themselves test.

                      Still waiting for waiver here. Was just told I was reallocated for a GL6! That is, if the waiver comes through! Hope it is soon! I was going to ask how the first week of IF was..guess I know now. At least you are warm, here in Colorado we got about two inches of snow! Not ready for that!
