Maintenance Repair Worker (Current Employee) – Highland Hills, OH – April 16, 2018
Working for the state is great if you work for ODOT or the Highway patrol or any place but corrections. The department of corrections is awful. The inmates truly run the asylum. The prisoners have more rights than the staff do.
Good benefits, pension
Favoritism, union and management in constant battle
This job is not for the weak minded or weak hearted. It puts a strain on your family life and drains you mentally. It is where I got my start in corrections but would not recommend it to someone straight out of high school.
Inventory Control Specilist 2 (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – April 6, 2018
I enjoyed the work at the bureau, the politics I could live without. This review is typical of a day at the BWC. You can't just answer the question you have to enter a certain amount of bullcrap in order to meet the minimum qualls.
the state of ohio gave me an opportunity to improve myself ,and to learn and grow.i learned how to prepare meals from scratch,and to operate all phases of a kitchen.maintanence was a great learning tool,learning how tom do various things.
There are a lot of workers that do barely enough work to get by and also there are some management staff that do the same as well. There is a union however it seems like the longer someone works there, the lazier they are. The treat new hires like they are nothing and pawn all the work off of them.
Though state works on little older versions of software not on par with private organizations, I got to work with direct clients and customers as part of UAT. The applications I worked on have direct impact to the Ohio residents and/or Policy holders, with high visibility to the State Governor.
Very value adding roles with State of Ohio as a QA Architect/QA Lead.
High impacting and satisfying roles
Older versions of software not in par with the latest in the IT field.

RN nurse 1 for Prison (Former Employee) – Prison system – March 6, 2018
I WAS a RN nurse 1 for a prison. The hours were awful, I was "froze" all the time and mandated to work 16 hours at least twice a week abdnofteb mandated to come in one of my 2 days off due to chronic short staffing. The pay was great, as were benefits but my quality of life outside work suffered. It was not worth the $$.
Great benefits and pay
Mandated overtime, was at prison more than with my family
The culture of this involved correctional and medical staff working together to provide living assistance to criminals with mental health issues. The hardest part of this job was the unexpected overtime.
