      I worked in the institutions for 8 years, now with probation and parole. The WI D.O.C. has it's ups and downs just like any job, but in the setting/environment you work you will see things, smell things and participate in things you never thought existed...but now I am trying to explore the Police Officer route...I'm HOPING my education and experience in corrections will help.

        I live in Illinois and will be taking the written test in two weeks. Do you know if the DOC is actively hiring?

          WI DOC is always accepting applications for C.O.'s. Go on the google there and type in State of Wisconsin jobs, and go to wiscjobs.com.

            Is Wisconsin DOC considered as a peace officer?

              We are considered family agencies, if you know what I mean by that. We don't have arresting rights, and of course you can't pull anyone over.

                No, it is NOT a peace officer Classification.

                Scott Walker put the D.O.C. properties up for sale.

                D.O.C. Secretary Ed Wall promised those DOC employees found to be discussing said Sale, would be fired.

                A LARGE majority of their top-heavy Seniority is eligible to retire this year/next year, then it will probably be sold to "Corrections Inc." from Kentucky, or are they from Tenn.?

                Unfortunately, if you think the WI DOC is an avenue to LE someday, look elsewhere. Keep the job delivering pizza, get your Bachelor's Degree, and self-fund yourself through a WI LE Academy.

                The C in the acronym for DOC is not for "corrections".

                  Yup, THEN subtract for your "benefits".

                  Most so called raises get eliminated when Walker/Wall increase your "contributions" to the "benefits".

                  You WILL be ordered to work the double shift, of 16 hours, and that can be done (3) days in a row. When you are ordered to work doubles there is no extra time between shifts; 16 hours on, your 8 personal hours, then 16 hours on again, 8 hours off, then another 16 hours on...

                  It's insane for a "Security" Institution to run so many people with that level of sleep deprivation, but they do. Dangerous.

                    ..and more bad news for WI DOC:

                    #1.) Governor Scott Walker announced that due to "Budget constraints" all 3rd Shift tower positions are to be eliminated at 10 Institutions, as the "...prisoners are all locked into their housing units, in bed." There's a debate therein as to a need for 3rd shift tower guards, that's one thing, but to publicly announce that is beyond the realm of horrible Corrections management.

                    #2.) Walker announced that WI DOC workers will now have to pay MORE increases in their insurance deductibles. For the layman's terms, here is how it worked: First, Walker/Wall upped the amounts employees "contributed" to their health insurance and pensions, directly out of your paychecks. Next, they reduced the insurance plan coverage you are paying for. So, in effect, DOC employees are now paying almost quadruple of what they were just 3 years ago, AND getting LESS insurance. Hammy...

                    No big deal for the folks making $32 an hour, but for the new hires at $15 an hour, it actually works out to around $9.75 an hour now, BEFORE you have to pay out an annual $3500 deductible on your healthcare. So, while you may have a $30K gross WITH OT, pray you or your children don't need healthcare.

                    Sorry.
