Typically under contract you can get a “Step raise” every year in either January or July depending g on hire date. But contract negotiations and “give backs” sometimes prevent those raises. But overall it’s a great job that’s not for everyone
What would you suggest State of Connecticut management do to prevent others from leaving?
No promotional opportunities and favoritism. Managers don't get fired staff does.
I was a correctional locksmith, so I worked M-F 7:45-3:00pm with 12 paid holidays a year. There was overtime and emergency hold overs, and NO snow days! Even if the state is closed, you ARE essential personnel and MUST report for duty
40 to 60 hours per week were often put in as job was demanding and oftenmerited responses to courts, judges etc.
I enjoy going to work, I take pride in working for the State of CT, I enjoy just being of assistance in any area I can, It gives me great pleasure in knowing I was able to be of assistance to our customers
