Detention Officer Interview

Detention Officer

I applied online and the process took 7 months - interviewed at Corrections Corporation of America.

Interview Details – It was a very generic interview. They asked a few questions about how you would react in certain situations and how would you treat a person if you new this or that about them. I was surprised that the interview was not more in depth it was very surface level. The security clearance was what surprised me, it took 6 months to get my clearance and it was then that I could actually be hired.

Interview Question – How would you react if an inmate showed his/her genitalia to you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was my way or the highway with CCA.
