    I worked at Florida Department of Corrections full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I only worked for the department one year. I got pregnant and couldn't finish my training. For the time I was there, I can say that I loved the every day interaction with co-workers and probationers.

    Cons

    If you are not sure that interacting with probationers is your thing, your mission in life, you will not be comfortable in that environment.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Florida Department of Corrections.

    Interview

    (Florida State Prison: Raiford) After about 2 weeks after applying online, I received a phone call to come in for an interview.
    I arrived at the interview site and interviewed with Asst Warden and another higher level officer.
    They asked me 6 pretty simple questions. (I don't remember them specifically. However, I do remember that they were easy to answer). They were just about my experience and history.
