I have been working at West Virginia Division of Corrections full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Benifits, job stability and good co workers

Cons

The state salary sucks! There is alot of turn over and most of the turn over goes back to the salary offered.

Advice to Management

If you want to have better retention then you need to increase the salary.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 worked at West Virginia Division of Corrections (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are good but the rates are going up. Vacation and sick leave is easy to accrue. Lots of holidays off.

    Cons

    Poor management. Good ole boy network. If you like to be back stabbed this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The Cabinet Secretary needs to fire top management in Corrections. They treat their employees badly. Sexual harassment is daily. Acting Commissioner is a joke. Never understood why they put uneducated people in top positions.
