Deputy Jailer in Paducah, KY
on July 21, 2021
Run from this job. You will work 7 days a week, and shifts that aren't yours as people randomly don't show up. The jail holds more inmates then they are supposed to, so inmates are never happy.

There are many positives to working here if you are a good person and a good worker. Don't even apply if you are short on patience for inmates and co workers. Most problems are working themselves out and 10 hour shifts with 3 day weekends every week are nice.

Buddy system is incredibly prevalent. Work experience before working at this jail is irrelevant. They only want bodies to man the undesirable positions and advance friends of administration. They’ve created two unnecessary positions complete with raises for staff in administration, while leaving bulk of floor deputies at uncompetitive wage range. Leadership beyond sgt is virtually nonexistent as far as being seen day to day.

There's not enough people to get everything done in a shift. The ratio is supper high and can get someone hurt in time. They prefer the "good ole boy system" if your not in, don't think twice about any type of promotion.

I enjoyed the people that I worked with. I felt constantly challanged by the work. I felt that ii was helping the inmates to want a better life. I found community resources to help the inmates when they were released.
