Medical Assistant Extern (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXJune 17, 2014
Place was my learning playground. I would have never thought i would do my internship at a prison but it was the best experience of my life. If I could go back and do it again I would not change a thing. Everyday was a new adventure.

The dungeon
Senior Officer (Former Employee), Morgantown, WVMay 13, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: anger, stress, misery
A typical day was filled with arguments, anger, laughs, and relief. Management was concerned about themselves, and ideas or suggestions were rarely implemented. The hardest part of the job was dealing with not only inmates but other staff. Most enjoyable part was leaving.

Pros: healthcare, law enforcement pay
Cons: high stress
The Federal Bureau of Prisons is a multi-cultural organization. There is never a dull day when you work inside of an institution. I have learned to be firm, fair and consistent with inmates. The management encourages promotion by providing on the job cross-training. Working inside of a prison gives you a different perspective of team work. We have to – more... work together cohesively to stay safe. The hardest part of the job is not allowing the criminal atmosphere make you cynical. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that your positive attitude can have a positive life changing effect on an inmate returning into society. – less
