    I worked at Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits like paid vacations that increase over the years, good insurance, sick leave etc. Job security is a pro. The best pro is the once your foot is in the door you can usually move into other state jobs easier than an outside candidate.

    Cons

    Set hours can be a pain. Many positions have set days off as well. Usually use personal time to take off.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teammates

    Hire more Correction Officers. I retired in July, and I sent a application in because I want to return to work at Franklin Medical center.

    Pros

    I can only speak for the Franklin Medical Center. Pay is good for an RN. You get a hazard pay. Benefits & time off are good.

    Cons

    This place really went down hill since the fussell monitoring went away. We are short staffed. Mandations constantly though. People treat the staff & inmates like dogs! Supervisors tell your confidential information. I've worked there 9 years and this place has gotten bad! Losing good nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Support your nurses! Get rid of the rats & cockroaches. In a hospital?!?! That's disgusting!
