    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at Corrections Corporation of America.

    Interview Details

    interviewed in front of 4-5 people: Warden, Assistant Warden, Chief of Security, and a sargeant. It took me over a year to hear back after filling out the application. The process has changed somewhat but it still takes awhile from start to finish.
