Recruitment and Retention Incentives: FSIS Consumer Safety Inspectors

Use this information along with the information on How to Apply: Consumer Safety Inspector.

Creditable Service for Annual Leave Accrual

  • FSIS is offering Creditable Service for Annual Leave Accrual as a recruitment incentive that will allow newly-hired Consumer Safety Inspectors in difficult-to-staff locations to receive credit toward their annual leave (vacation) accrual for directly-related work performed either outside the federal government or during active duty in a uniformed service.

Student Loan Repayment Program (SLRP)

  • May be offered to newly-appointed employees in difficult-to-staff locations as a recruitment flexibility or may be offered to current employees for retention purposes if employee meets criteria (e.g., likely to leave federal service and departure would affect agency’s ability to carry out mission).
  • $10,000 gross payment per year for three years, totaling $30,000 before applicable taxes, with a signed three-year service agreement.

Retention Incentive

  • May be offered to retain a current employee who performs work of a special or critical need of FSIS, or who has unusually high or unique qualifications, and would likely leave federal service without the incentive.
  • Up to 25% of base salary to in-plant Consumer Safety Inspectors in difficult-to-staff locations.

NOTE: Recruitment and retention flexibilities and incentives are offered based on agency staffing needs and budgetary availability. A location’s inclusion on the difficult-to-staff list below does not guarantee that incentives or flexibilities will be available; staffing needs and budgetary availability will determine which, if any, incentives or flexibilities will be used. Service agreements will apply.
