Correctional Officer, Rawlins, WY - August 24, 2015
I supervised inmates on a daily basis. I made sure they didn't fight, steal, or make things they weren't supposed to. It was a very simple job. 4 days on, 4 days off. Vacation time, plenty of OT if you wanted it, good pay for the work you do. Not great management. My biggest complaint is the staff. The ones who spend time with the supervisors outside of work are the ones who get the best posts and are most likely to promote. And if you are not one to play that game, then you will sit in the least desirable post as an officer your entire career. Rules and standards are constantly changing, so you are always questioning if you will be reprimanded.
