    Yes they are hiring now. Check usajobs.gov to apply. You need either a bachelors degree in any field or 2 years experience as a correction officer. I am currently in the academy for NYC correct in officer but I used to be a federal employee.

        Make sure you were rated "Best Qualified" or VQ. You have to BQ to even be referred for an interview

        If you didn't rate BQ simply tweak your app and reapply until you do. Articulate your experience just don't lie.

            Feel free to check the qualifications under usajobs.gov bop officer. Pretty sure you need 2 years mandatory correction officer experience if you don't have the bachelors degree. You need the experience or the education. I don't know if they count military. Its possible since it's a federal gig.

              Military will suffice IF you articulate everything in your resume well enough and if you answer the questionnaire right.

              Allenwood has been hiring quite a bit for the last year.
              I don't know everything, but I am a superlative Googler.

                Actually work experience where you supervised is good too. We have hired classes of 7-12 every pay period the last few and there have been several with ZERO correctional experience. Only super isor experience at retail type settings G's and such. As well as folks with degrees and then those with minor combination

                      Very infrequently. It's a medium but runs more like a low. FCI cupcake. Happy staff happy inmates. Not a lot of turnover but they do hire so put in.

                            We have hired about 60 Officers since June and SEVERAL have zero correctional experience. So you can still get an Officer spot just places like low or med stand alone FCI's that don't hire as much it's harder to get on.
