Frequently Asked Questions USAJOBS

Are there any restrictions about the types of positions available for transfer?

 


Some positions in the competitive service such as guard, messenger, elevator operator, and custodian have been restricted by law to persons entitled to Veterans’ preference. Generally, a non-veteran employee cannot be transferred to such positions if there are Veterans available for appointment to them. This restriction does not apply if a non-veteran is already serving in a Federal agency in a position covered by the same generic title. For example, a non-veteran who is serving in the position of guard may be considered for transfer to the position of patrolman, guard, fireman, guard-laborer, etc.
