Topic: The Club House / Ohio DRC

I received an email today about an interview for 05/29/13 at the Toledo Correction facility. I’ve been waiting for this for a few months but I also received a job offer in lincoln nebraska as a mental health security officer. It’s a place where the court orders people to orders people to go instead of prison (insanity verdict).

Is it a guarantee after the interview or am I going to have to wait for another coup mom th months. What is the process after the interview?

Is Toledo a good place to raise a family compared to lincoln nebraska?
Is the Toledo Correctional Facility a good facility to work for?
As someone currently working as a CO which two jobs would you take?

I passed the assessment on 03/13/2013. I still have not heard anything back from my background. I know it’s only been a month but I need this job.

I would love a small farm town that is not too far from a big town or city.

That’s good to hear! Thanks Assassin.

I will be relocating from Las Vegas if hired. I do not know much about Ohio. I do have a family and would want a area that is family friendly. But like you said after probation I could put a transfer request. Awesome news!!! Thanks

Once hired I would have to go to the academy in columbus ohio, right? I also heard they pay room and food during the academy. I just got back from Columbus where I had to take the assessment. I figured I could fly out for the academy and save money while my daughter finishes school in nevada. By that time my family would be ready to move out with me. It seems crazy but me and my wife have wanted to move out of Nevada. I was born end raised there and want a change.

I am pretty good in interviews and have been interviewed by panels before but if they don’t hire me I would of wasted lots of money. I had to take the gamble when I flew out there for the assessment. The move paid off but I guess I have one more hurdle in the interview. Believe it or not there where people who failed the assessment.

Again thank you so much for your info.

Thanks nryen!! What can I expect at the interview? It seems that within a month I should hear something. This is a big move for me and my family. We would be moving from Las Vegas to Ohio. Is the pay good compared to cost of living?

Never mind you answered my first question within a month. I also made a mistake on my assessment date it was on 03/13/2013

Thanks for the reply!!! Did you only put the prisons that were close to you on your application? I will be moving from out of state (I do not currently live in Ohio) so I put every prison down on my application. Don’t know if this will speed up the process or not. I sure hope so because I need this job.

How are the staffing levels in general in the prisons in Ohio? I read an article on the Internet that a CO got killed and it was blamed on staffing levels. It went as far as a billboard being put up stating the prisons need more staff.

Is the pay good compared to the cost of living in Ohio?
Why do you think they are not completing background checks prior to interview?

Thanks again for your valuable input. I am excited for the opportunity and cant wait to get that call. I worked very hard for this opportunity including 4 years of college for criminal justice.

Hello everybody,

I am new to this forum. Just wanted to see if there is anybody currently working with Ohio DRC or has applied.
I just passed the assessment on 03/13/2012. My background investigation is pending. I wanted to know the estimated time frame this takes. I do know the hiring process has changed quite a bit in the last couple years. In fact, during my assessment they told me that they don’t even wait to complete the background investigation prior to starting. But that if they find a disqualifier you will be let go.

I signed up for every institution in Ohio. Is there better ones to work at than others?

Just want to know other people’s opinions and suggestions.
