There is nothing good to say about JCDC. Awful administration who don’t care about you. If you get put on light duty for any reason they do everything they can to make you leave and treat you like you’re trash. They push all the trained and valuable people out and keep the ones that sleep with inmates or don’t know what they are doing. If you want to be stressed, overworked, and miserable, this is the place for you.
Took me about 3-4 weeks to get hired completely. Have to go through a physical, psych evaluation, drug test, and background check.
The pay is deceiving though. You don’t make as much as the website says even if you have experience. I was lied to all the way through my hiring process about pay. They didn’t tell me till after I got hired what I was going to make and it was not no $17-$18 like the website makes it sound like.
Extensive interview process. You are required to complete a 90 question test, go through a physical exam, a drug test, and then the interview process last.
