The prison near me is having interviews on Saturday for Correctional Officers, and I was thinking of applying. The only requirements are a high school diploma, and being 19 or older. I was just wondering if anyone here knows what it’s like, it seems like something I might possibly be interested in.
Only thing is, I read that some of the functions for the job are things like backup in riot control, and stuff like that. Are people who do this kind of job usually fairly big? I’m 19, 5’11, and 180lbs (although I’m gaining weight now, I had to cut for a while in order to compete in a tournament in my weight class). I guess I just kind of want to know what it’s like. I have around 13 or 14 years experience in martial arts though, figure I might as well do something that could possibly involve them.
