    BOP Hiring process

    Hello!


    Do you think they would withdraw my conditional offer without informing me or am I in a hurry? Anybody know the time frame for this agency's hiring process?

    You started the process in late November 2006 and are worried about it going to slow? Dude, seriously, you gotta learn some patience if you're going to apply with the feds. Even if BOP is doing an "accelerated hiring process", background investigations take time... and usually we're talking about months or more.

    Be patient. Don't be "that guy" who calls all the time wanting a by-the-minute status update when they have no news to give you.

    I know they are swamped but do you think they would withdraw my conditional offer without informing me or am I in a hurry? Anybody know the time frame for this agency's hiring process?


    Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of justice.

    I hear that usually works pretty well when you're trying to get a job.




    I would keep waiting until the 7th, when the 7th rolls along, try to find out again, if they have a local office, maybe report there with any paperwork they gave you.

    Rest in peace.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I know I'm lacking patience. Thanks for your response. I guess tenative just means tenative. The position is in AZ and I am in AR and this may just have something to do with it. By the way BOP (Bureau of Prisons)
