  • Corrections Help

    This is my second corrections job that I'm applying for. The first job I ended after two days of work because I also worked at a university police department, had an internship, and attended school. The lieutenant asked me why I quit after two days and I said that it just wasn't the best choice I made at that point in my life but I deeply regret quitting the job. I also assured him that the same outcome would not happen again. What do you think my odds of getting hired are at this point? (background check is good)

    I would assume that circumstances have not changed since you asked the same question in the Michigan forum and spoke about your experience while working in the jail in the ask a cop forum.

    If you quit the jail job because you didn't have enough time for school, internship and other activities........then you need to explain that to the person that interviews you. Don't sugar coat anything! Just tell the truth.
    If there were other reasons-----they will come out in the interview/background process..........just tell the new employer the whole truthful story.

    You wouldn't have any probelm in my state system........

    I realize that its tough and I have a lot of respect for those who are in corrections. I worked in a jail for a few days and it was a terrible atmosphere. But then again, I met those who fell in love with corrections and had their chances to go on the road and never did.

    I have worked at a number of jobs throughout my college career and have never been fired or asked to resign. I also assume that my past employers would give me a very good recommendation for being a hard worker and rarely missing any days of work due to illness. About one year ago I was offered a position with a county jail as a corrections officer. So I took the job and passed the psych test, physical, background, etc. I was also employed with the Ferris Police Department part time and attending school full time at Ferris State Univeristy. Needless to say, I ended my job at the jail within a couple weeks because there was too little time for my job/school at Ferris. I am in the application process for another county corrections job right now that I am positive I will have time for. Will this look bad on a resume because I quit the other jail so soon?
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
