    BOP hiring

    Hello,
    Anyone familiar with BOP hiring? Does Philly FDC hire often? What about Fort Dix in NJ or Petersburg in VA? I'd like to get something relatively quick around my region so whoever is hiring faster in the NE/Mid Atlantic, would be good to know. I read that the second preference doesn't matter? I used to be a CO at a state prison and wanna get back in the game. How different is fed? What about county?
    Thanks!

    You're gonna have to wait, I was supposed to start this month but the new President issued a nationwide federal hiring freeze, and nobody knows how long it's going to be for.

    Petersburg is a complex with multiple facilities. Better chance there than Philly or Dix.

    I'm retired and not sure of the hiring process because of Grand Prairie and USAJOBS.GOV (I never had to deal with it) but if you can start the process vis USAJOBS I would go ahead and submit your info and then wait for the call.

    The freeze will eventually be lifted.

    Re: BOP hiring

    If one reads both the OPMs guideline they issued Bio is not effected (public safety LE factor) and all agencies are good for internal promotions etc.

    BOP was waiting for guidance because u til last week there was no US Attorney General and there has been no permanent Director for BOP the last 18 months.

    They are still posting jobs and going through the formalities of hiring g they just won't make any selections until they get the OK.

    So apy because when they do open it up it's going to be like a flood gates.

    Several folks are in a holding pattern. Several sold their house and we're in temp quarters waiting to move. If you weren't in place by the 24th you are hit for the moment.

    They will have to do something soon at least on the transfer/internal promotions part.
