People moaning about someone planning to stay for five years makes me laugh. On average only 10% of those passing college will still be in the service in two years time. If everyone stayed a minimum of five years the service would be in a much stronger position.
I think if more people were truthful with their accounts of what the job is really like you would weed half the candidates out, I understand the recruitment drive needs people but if things are sugar coated then people are going to go in to it not knowing what to expect. A female officer was recently beaten and taken in to a sexual predators cell where had the prisoners not raised the alarm she would have been violated but there is no coverage of mention of it here.
It does interest me that only a low percentage stay in the job for greater than 2 years, everyone I spoke to on my 2 visits to my establishment loved it and the majority had been there greater than 2 years, only a handful had been there less.
It would be interesting to know per prison which one has the best and worst retention.
But to get back on track, all wages are listed in the Pay Review Board published earlier this year and you can apply for promotion after you finish your 1st years probation.
