RN nurse 1 for Prison (Former Employee) – Prison system – March 6, 2018
I WAS a RN nurse 1 for a prison. The hours were awful, I was "froze" all the time and mandated to work 16 hours at least twice a week abdnofteb mandated to come in one of my 2 days off due to chronic short staffing. The pay was great, as were benefits but my quality of life outside work suffered. It was not worth the $$.
Great benefits and pay
Mandated overtime, was at prison more than with my family
The culture of this involved correctional and medical staff working together to provide living assistance to criminals with mental health issues. The hardest part of this job was the unexpected overtime.
Dealing with various level of inmates including death row. Some days I would get to work the visiting office which was my favorite, getting to know the families and helping them scheduled to visit. Other days were hard if you had to deal with inmates fighting or hurting each other, you must act quick and respond using ipc skills.
Good pay and great benefits/poor leadership at higher levels

Must be willing to work several weekends a month as a mental health staff member providing suicide watch coverage. You are unable to accrue compensatory time for working weekends and will work 7 days a week consecutively. The Toledo Correctional Institution is now a level 4 security institution so you will work with violent offenders.
Teacher and Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Lewis Center, OH – February 18, 2018
I worked in Ohio for a total of 30 years and do not have any complaints. Nothing is perfect but any issues were easily resolved. As a teacher I served students and the community. As a home health aide I assisted clients with medication management, bathing, cleaning, cooking and running. The hardest part of my teaching job was all the after work paperwork and the hardest part of my home health job was watching client's health deteriorate. The best part of my teaching job was working with children and watching them grow academically, The best part of being a health was learning about their past and helping them to be independent in their home thus-no nursing homes.
Great boss and the clients were wonderful.
No breaks or lunch hours, had to take them on my own time but with my teaching job it ws paid time. Low pay for both jobs.
Group Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Marysville, OH – February 15, 2018
It was the most competitive workforce experience Ive ever had and has prepared me for the rest of my career. I was required to do a lot and given very little direction which caused me to become a phenomenal trainer
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Ravenna, OH – February 14, 2018
Nice even pace, good people to work with and excellent benefits. My responsibility is to write scopes of work, build cost estimates, manage the environmental concerns, and run project showings and meetings.
No day is the same , you come on shift and go to roll call and pick your post and get briefed on what happened the previous day and then take your post. You will get the inmates up for breakfast then start theday with passes , rec, etc.
Residential Support Worker (Former Employee) – Northfield, OH – February 1, 2018
My job that I was fine I had a great time working with the people also with the clients also had a great time working with the staff of the state of Ohio I also worked in the community support program which is great too
This job was not too bad when I started back in 2006. Then as time progressed and convicted felons needs were put above staff, that's when things went downhill. When security takes a backseat to Inmates needs, something is terribly wrong. Everyone is scared of a lawsuit these days that they will do anything to appease Inmates and their families to make themselves look good in the eyes of the public.
Case mgmt/assisting claimants to overcome barriers in job search.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Maumee, OH – January 23, 2018
The environment is conducive to work, assisting the average Unemployment claimant, receiving benefits. The environment or the typical OMJ Center has accessible services/agencies, computers, and other resources for claimants to be successful in their job search.
Limited resources in bad economy or during "hard times."
Systems Analyst 2 (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 22, 2018
Daily worked with several individuals. Worked in the Information Technology Department. Department of Taxation. Started as Data Entry 1 operator. Was responsible for tax forms entered to go to the main frame. Over the years I was promoted several times and ended up being a Systems Analyst2 on the main frame side. The job was stressful but that's because I needed to make sure all tax information was input to the mainframe correctly. if I could go back I would.
