Various Positions Held (Former Employee) – Otisville, NY 10963 – August 28, 2018
I retired after 26 years of Federal service working in a Federal Prison. You can have a meaningful career with an agency that truly values a diverse workforce. You will find a diverse workforce employed from entry level jobs to senior management positions. Our main focus is to protect public safety by ensuring that federal offenders serve their sentences of imprisonment in facilities that are safe, humane, cost efficient, appropriately secure, and provides reentry programing to ensure their successful return to the community. The employees at federal correctional facilities are "correctional workers first" and perform correctional work regardless of their specific occupation. Our long-standing culture of being a close-knit family sets us apart from other agencies - at the BOP you don't just get to know your co-workers, you make life long friends.

Audit Division, Program Analyst (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – August 6, 2018
I started at DOJ as an undergraduate intern in the Pathways program. I am extremely thankful to have been a part of the program because it exposed me to the life of a Federal employee. I have learned and experienced so many things that I know will benefit me in my future endeavors. Additionally, being in a Pathways intern was a lead way into me becoming a full time employee right after graduating from undergrad.
A typical day started with reviewing case files,talking to judges, managing calendars, sending out notes to peers, checking the court room for recording and starting court. I learned how to work with the judges in during court and after each day of court proceedings, notarize and certify court records, and how to keep the legal process moving. The hardest part was memorizing the legal pattern of each judge for their court room standards, the easiest was communicating with external/internal customers
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Yazoo City, MS – July 20, 2018
This was a very good job. You are tested before entering if pass the test then you get hired and then you will be tested again when you go off to training. The only thing I don't like is you miss the test by one point you still get sent home with no ob. The management was good. The work environment was good.
Loose your job if your test score are not 70 or above.
