If working a rotating schedule, you have 7 straight days of work between your days off. It sucks but it's allowed because if you look at the schedule week by week, you technically get two days off and five working days a week. However if you look at it over the calendar month, you see it the pattern how it rotates, and you work a whole seven days from your last day off to your next day off. The way it rotates also only gives you a weekend off a month.
Now add all the forced overtime and you get a healthy paycheck with little time to spend it, or spend with family.

1. Management needs to take their feedback from frontline staff who are dealing with issues and know how to fix them, not from pencil pushers in Madison who never actually worked the job.
2. The state needs more incentive to make more full time permanent positions within departments that otherwise only look for cheaper limited-term employees.

3. More consistency and less "experimenting" with policy and procedure.

Its took about 2 weeks for me. If you take a job at Sand Ridge be careful. It is the biggest backstabbing place I ever worked for in the state. It is DHFS not Corrections. You get treated better at DOC.
