I truly enjoyed the time I worked with Corrections. Not only do they value their employees, the employees value the quality of work they provide to the company. Also, the company covers two classes, 6 credit hours total, for those employees pursuing to further their education at any college. The staff are so open and it makes you feel like you have a second home.

I Have been here for a few years. It is a good place to work for. The health benefits are GREAT! Time off is good too. In retrospect, one only works two weeks, total, a month, because they run on 12 hour shifts. The shifts seem long, but unless there is a natural disaster headed our way, you are pretty much off every other weekend, which is nice too.
I've been a correctional officer for 2 and a half years. my goal at first was to use this experience as a step into farthing my career. I am currently finishing my degree in criminal justice of technology and find a lot of similarities in other job fields that I do in corrections. the department of corrections is not only a family but a team of officers that work together, fairly and rely on one another to get daily duties completed. This career is not friendly, not easy and far from being able to be complacent. I love what I do and anyone that will be interested in getting experience in some sort of corrections job, I really encourage anyone to start here.
