My experience while working for Texas Department of Criminal Justice has been a wild ride. However, the insurance they offer is outstanding and I couldn't ask for anything better. The employees there getting along so well and work as a team. Just like every job there are good and bad days although there you are more good than bad. I work there as an Administrative Assistant II one of the easiest jobs there are there. There are times when you have to answer the phone to some unhappy family members of the offenders, but once explain the situation to them they normally become very understanding. The departments I work for his called Corrective Intervention and Pre-Release Program, Serious and Violent Offender Re-entry Initiative, and Gang Renunciation And Disassociation.

when I apply for the job at Texas Department of Criminal justice, the test was not easy, but I passed. After the training, I have to be shadowed by an experienced correctional officer. the job was not easy at the beginning, but it get easier with the time. The crucial thing while working in prison is to stay all the time in alert.
The great benefit that you get while working there is your health coverage and your retirement. When you're a student like me, you can see your superior and ask a switch for part time. They will allow you to continue a career.
Great benefits, excellent promotion opportunities, the schedule is steady and pay comes along with that. The correctional officers work as a team unit to help keep the operations running smoothly. Although the offenders can be difficult at times the environment being structured is helpful. The training opportunities are vast and helpful not only for work but life also. Different shift options to meet the unique demands of an individual employee's schedule.
