With more than 37,000 highly motivated individuals, we are one of the most unique agencies in the United States Department of Justice where each employee's day-to-day performance makes a difference in the lives of others. There are 122 Bureau of Prisons locations across the country and a listing of current openings is available on the USAJobs website.

Hiring Events are being offered at locations across the country. When attending, applicants should bring their resume and two forms of identification. Veterans are encouraged to attend and should also bring a resume, Member 4 copy of their DD-214 or VA rating decision letter and a VA Disability Certificate, if applicable. In most cases, Federal regulations require BOP employees to be under 37 years old when hired; however, exceptions are made for certain hard-to-fill positions and for preference eligible veterans. U.S. citizenship is also required. All candidates are subject to a drug urinalysis, physical examination, background investigation and, if hired, must successfully complete the three-week residential course, "Introduction to Correctional Techniques."
