There are some awesome people that work here. Some not so much. The good does outweigh the bad when discussing other staff members. Benefits are decent but there's always a threat they're going to raise premiums.
You willingly go to prison for the lowest paid corrections system in the country. Dela with scummy inmates but not all are bad. Most are pains in the backside. Administration is always changing stuff and enjoy playing favorites. If you whine and cry enough you get what you want, if not, they dump on you because you won't complain.
Advice to Management
Get raises for everyone. Be firm, fair, and consistent with staff the way they preach dealing with inmates.
I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at West Virginia Division of Corrections (Charleston, WV) in July 2015.
Standard government interview process, panel interview, same questions of each applicants, etc. Problem was this position was essentially for an employee transaction/payroll type of position. This was not spelled out in the job announcement and I don't have that experience. They for some reason selected me for interview. This essentially wasted my time and theirs. Also one of the interviewers WALKED OUT during the interview. Had other things to do. I regret not leaving the interview immediately and this is a very poor indicator of how things are done in this organization.
