I have been working at West Virginia Division of Corrections full-time (More than 10 years)
The Staff here work together as a Team Player and the training is very good.
You need to have a good head on your shoulders and be on guard working with the Inmates.
Advice to Management
Have to have good communication skills and a hard worker.
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.
