My experience was very rewarding with the progress I witnessed compared to when I began. There is a certain approach you need to get through to these kids and I'm thankful to have changed a few lives just by listening, enforcing policy, modeling positive behavior, and caring about these juveniles as a JCO. This job is more of a commitment to rehabilitate these youth, so if you have the time and want to change lives, this is the job for you.
Rewarding, great benefits, entry level experience
Stressful, dangerous, time consuming
