Intern (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 30, 2018
A typical day as a intern, was me converting paper documents to PDF files or trying to file paperwork. There was nothing boring about this internship, you got to learn how to utilize the county database to help build inmate profiles. I also screened incoming and outgoing mail for any suspicious activity. The hardest part about this particular internship was that the offenders and victims were individual involved in certain crimes that were hard to fathom. When you read these offenders profiles and what they did to their victims, it is heart wrenching. The most enjoyable part was knowing that I was making a difference in someone's life.

Parole and Probation Intern (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – March 26, 2018
This is for the DCJ specifically. I learned so much from this internship! Realistically though, interns are working as entry level employees for free. They should be paying their interns. That said, the training was excellent and it totally changed my career path for the better. My mentor still writes letters of recommendation for me and offers career advice on a regular basis.
Victim Advocate (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – March 22, 2018
Management at this place is atrocious. This is not the place that will be supportive of your needs outside of work. They will work you to the bone and not care how that affects you, your co-workers, or your loved ones. Non-transparent workplace with major management ego issues. No collaboration or conversations about how the work could be more efficient or supportive.
