Psssst... New York City Department of Corrections is hiring. :-)

Psssst... New York City Department of Corrections is hiring. :-)

If I can do it you can do it (LOL). Been there, done that, not going back (retired) but will give you the low down on the current salary structure and links to do the walks-in. Yup. It is an open competitive walk in test. Think you got the chops for this? Cool... Click this link if you dare. :-) 

How do you define service? How about taking the NYC Correction Officer exam?

That's the one I would not want to try. It may be one of the toughest jobs. And it sure takes a toll on people

Carolyn, just because you were able to survive in that system with your sanity & good humor doesn't mean everyone could!

It is a high stress job but it has a 20 year pension, nice medical benefits and provides quality training. Jon, I supervised male maximum security inmtes for a lot of years and am still spoofing about that (LOL).  :-)

I'm in.  Where do I sign up?

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) over 10 years ago

Maria, the people inside come back outside and you'd be surprised at just how many of them everyone has come into contact with and had no clue. I think that it's a misconception to believe you can't cope with people who have issues. We all have issues on various levels and the fact of the matter is there are people who do very bad things behind closed door who never got caught. Anyone who wants this job can do this job. They can also leave when they have had enough. For the unemployed, getting a foot in the door might make a huge difference for their family.

LOL @ Jane. Come on over to the Big Apple bay-bay! :-)

Not my cup of tea ... but I'll bet that you were one tough cookie!

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) over 10 years ago

Richard, I  turned into a professional nut job with a flexible personality for everyone. You might even theorize I was institutionalized by proxy and default (LMAO). It was a wild ride. You learn a lot about what makes people tick working there. Seriously... ;-)

I agree about it teaching you alot about people. I was a Corrections Officer for 6 years, and it seemed like having good "people skills" made things much easier than those who weren't good at understanding or communicating with people had it. I also learned that many of the "worst" (I worked with maximum securiity male inmates) had their own lessons to teach, and that treating all people with basic respect still works in most situations.

Raine, I second that and most people are not evil 24 hours a day 7/365. People have a lot to offer. No one is perfect and I am a great example of that (LOL). :-)
