Correctional Officer II in Springfield, VT
on June 9, 2021
Worked as a correctional officer. It’s a hard job, but is well compensated. The mandatory overtime can be overwhelming and it’s hard to get days off.

Slow paced and low pay. Benefits are good. People are good but some can’t be trusted. Union is a joke. On call 4 straight months for plowing with little compensation
IT Support Specialist in Barre, VT

The only reason I am looking to change jobs is because they are changing the pension so that you must work until 67 to qualify...adding 13 years to my career!! With 19+ years in, it is unfair to be changing this benefit at this time and so drastically. I was planning to buy out my last 5 years and retire in 6 years. Instead, I will have to work another 19 years to qualify for the pension. A lot of people are jumping ship.
Maintenance Mechanic in Burlington, VT

Everything is a process with the state. You need 3 tiered approval to use the bathroom. Just kidding but its a lot of bureaucracy. But the job is perfect if you have kids. Working construction I never had any time off.
Temporary Correctional Officer in Newport, VT
on January 27, 2021
Not a bad company, but alot of bad actors. The job requires alot and you sacrifice alot but promotions are still give based on how much butt you kiss. You can be a stellar employee but if you aren't about taking in massive overtime and treating inmates less than human you are seen as a lefty or the "hug-a-thug" type. Get on to it if you want experience to take with you, or if you want a job that requires little from you but time and energy.

Interview Questions

I had an interview about 4 years ago for a Benefit Specialist position. The questions were straight forward such as, "why do you want this position?" I was coming from Connecticut so they asked why am I interested in the particular position with the State of Vermont. They also asked where I saw myself in five years. Just real simple question / answer session. I will say, I have never felt more comfortable and relaxed in an interview. They made me feel very welcomed. I can say it was the best interview in my working career.
