Job pays well. You have to be on point at all times. Stressful, alarms
are going off every minute, constantly suiting up for fighting, slashing and extracting inmates. Security searches four to five times a day. Unannounced security searches, finding contraband on their personal. You have inmates that's on watch sheets, where you have to record what their doing every 10 to 15 minutes. If there are 60 to a dorm, 10 may be watch sheets plus the other fifty you have to watch.
Hours of work are 7-3, 3-11, 11-7. 4 days on 2 days off. After working 8 hours, there is no guarantee that you will be going home, most of the time you are stuck for another 8 hours. There is always over-time, you can give it away if someone wants it, you can get lucky. other than that, the job pays well but stressful.
Constant gearing up for alarms
