I dunno how it works exactly, but I've known multiple people who've transferred from one agency to another with an official start date in the middle of a pay period.
eta; my guess is that it's a huge headache for HR to do it so they basically usually tell people it's not possible.
maybe it's just my agency; they never let anyone start except at the beginning of a pay period.
For the IT/InfoSec division of the agency I have worked at for the last 5+ years, I have only seen one person brought in on a day other than the first day of a pay period, and that was an executive they rushed in the day before the inauguration, seemingly in hopes of avoiding the potential stupidity of a hiring freeze.
