    in 20 years the only time I have seen that is when an institution was activating. so you were a rate case.

    The latest "story" is there is talk of putting the hiring back on the individual institutions like they did prior to Grand Prarie activating in 2007 ish However it won't be soo because the New/Old director just put out info that came hey are hiring additional staff in Geand Prarie's staffing office ro help so they can the hire more staff at institutions faster than they are

    No, I got hired when an institution opened an announcement just for that particular institution. It was for COs. You don't see them often but it does happen.

    Not sure if you ment this but let me explain it a little further. The announcements for the Indiidual institutions are for BOP employees wanting a lateral transfer. Not for people off the street to come Into

    Those will state in the Eligiblility section "Current BOP employees or reinstatement eligibles"

    The jobs for specific institutions will state "Open to the public" but they are usually other than CO positions like HVAC, Teacher, Nurse or some other specialty

How does a transfer even work? Do you have to be off probation? Thanks in advance.
    Have you been contacted to go through the hiring process for both prisons? If so, I would wait for the one you really want to go to. Once you get hired at a specific prison, it's not that easy to transfer. You usually have to wait till after probation and you have to wait till the other prison posts an announcement for transfers. Usually at the 6/7 grade. I guess you could reapply under the national announcement for the joint you really want as well. Really just depends on your situation. If you have any specific questions, feel free to PM.

But they're bringing me in as a 5. I do not understand this. I can't find anything that differs between the two. I thought it was just a straight 5 or 6 and then they brought you on according to what you were qualified for. Can anyone explain? Thanks in advance.
    There should have been a block for you to check on the announcement where you were asked if you wanted to be considered for both.

    Now for reality. Since a out 2009 almost everyone with few exceptions have been brought on as GL 5. Experience doesn't matter as its purely Wardens discretion. And they are all about saving money.

    However if your a transfer from another federal civilian agency you shouldn't lose money as they would place you at a 5 step 6 or whatever was close.

    if you hire in as a 5 you would be caught up to someone by the start of your 3rd year that hired in as a 6 as you would both then be 7 step 3's.

    Will they at least match you last federal pay?

    Don't stress. The qualification is relatively easy. If you are struggling they instructors will take notice and work with you one on one.

    You have plenty of practice to shoot the course of fire during training hours. They do have simulators at FLETC, but they were closed when I was there.

    Yeah im qualified on the Glock 23 so i guess a little less recoil will only help my score.
