descent place to work for as a stepping stone. Also a good place to advance your skills as a probation officer from private to state. Also become an intern.

Typical day at work
Court Services Officer (Current Employee) –  Douglasville, GAOctober 12, 2014
I come in to a friendly environment. I get appointments from Probation Officers so I can go to court to sign paople up for probation at Sentinel Offender services. I sit in the courtroom and listen to the various pleas, status hearings, probation revocations, and sentencing. When a defender is convicted of a misdemeaner, I get their information so they can officially start probation. Their first meeting with a Probation Officer would be in a week to ten days. I go back to the office and input the information into the Sentrak program. I assist Probatuon Officers with various documents such as Probation Revocations.
Pros
Long lunches when I must return to court at 1:30 pm
Cons
There have not been any raises

No Overtime, No Raises, Lots of Work
Probation Officer (Current Employee) –  Douglasville, GAOctober 15, 2012
There is a lot of work that is required to do. You must be good at case management and multitasking. You must have good time management skills. Overtime is not allowed without permission from corporate - and it is not likely to be approved. You will rarely get a raise unless your position changes.
