    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Oregon Department of Corrections full-time


    Benefits are decent and there is an ability to comp overtime. Schedules are by bid so are guaranteed and set hours. Decent amount of overtime available and if one has to work a holiday... The pay is good.


    As mentioned... Schedules are by bid so newest employees are generally relegated to the least desirable time slots. Environment lends itself to jaded employees... So will need to be able to focus on the positive to retain professional neutrality

    Advice to Management

    Allow for paid continuing education as an incentive to recruitment. Provide better info on Pers for retirement planning. Create schedules that work for the institution instead of staff voted selection of schedules.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oregon Department of Corrections.


    I applied in August and was contacted almost 3 months later to schedule an interview. The job is posted for locations throughout the state at any time. An HR person will contact you to fill out pre-interview materials that will need to be completed and sent back before the interview, or brought with you to the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask 8 specific questions. The most challenging, if you aren't specifically prepared for them are: What are the diagnostic criteria for Bipolar I disorder? What are the 4 modules of DBT and give a couple examples of skills from each module? How do you assess for suicidality and need for constant observation with an inmate that has attempted to hang himself? How do you determine if am inmate is malingering? They also ask: Have you ever felt like you have been treated unfairly and if you have, how did you handle it? Describe your experience working in a prison or jail with inmates. Would you rather be liked or feared by an inmate? I can't remember the last questions, but it was an easy one :)   Answer Question
