  • Corrections.......

    I searched other threads and really didn't find much info - just wondering if anyone has any idea how long it takes to secure a position as a CO in Bucks, I took the exam and passed now just waiting to hear regarding the interview.

    Thanks

      They are hiring for Philly prison, corrections officer. Don't know if it is a very desirable job. FYI

            Yeah they are hiring in Philly. Test is in December for anyone who is interested. It is a desirable job, if a LE position isn't available this is a good job to get some experience. Who knows you may like it better inhouse.

                  I took Philly's test u know how that goes - injured my foot and was off by 10sec during Bensalem's test - so I figured why not go for Corrections, I mean I have that degree so want to put it to good use! I'm hoping being a female and all it will help - actually there was only one other female during the written exam.

                    Yeah that sounds like good stuff corrections is a good area also. Yeah being a female may help you know they want to have both male and female candidates to hire. The corrections process doesn't include a P/T am I correct?

                      I did discuss this a little with the admin. the process is a little different, there is no agility test, however of course you must have a physical and I believe a background - then once accepted, you attend their little academy. Hey it's a huge stepping stone - right now I work in Security, which at least is something to have on my resume. I also heard that Bucks pays alot more than Phila.
