    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal Bureau of Prisons.

    Interview

    I went for my interview but wasn't allowed to follow through with it because I wrote on the paper I have been suspended from my past job. It happened a year ago. It was a mandatory suspension that everyone gets if they get into an accident with the company truck. They told me I was able to re apply just not enough time had passed yet. She wasn't able to tell me exactly how much time has to pass before I can qualify again. But she told me to keep trying. Does anyone else know of the time frame ??
