    Corrections Officer

    I am taking my written test on Sat (4-8-06) for the corrections officer position at my county Jail. If and when I pass the written test there is a adjility test I have to pass, (which I could do no problem). I have been wanting to do this for quite some time, I hope everything works out in my favor.
    Just thought I would share as i am getting anxious.

    Yep, but I got a in that works there. My best friend is a sergent there, so he has a decent amount of pull.
    Only downside is that I will proboly get stuck with the night shift for sometime. But it is something I want and I am OK with that , good $$ and bennies are worth the night shift for a while.

    Good luck. It's not a job I'd want. Rather be on the street with a gun. The people that I know that do it are happy with it, though.

    good luck, too confining for my tastes, and too much like baby sitting . did I mention I don't like whiners(which 80% of inmates are).

    But once you get into the muncipality it open's a whole new set of doors for ya. So even if I end up dislikeing this job for some reason, the road patrol is just a test away. Once your in, your in ya know thats why I gotta shoot for this. Plus Babysitting isn't that bad, my friend has been doing it for 11 years.

    Best of luck with that Bruce - I'll bet it is all but a breeze for you.

    Does indeed sound like a good way to get doors open over time - so maybe just a beginning.
