Hi guys,
Done training, now on 2nd shadow week. I'm at a prison in south East, and gotta be honest I hate the job so far. Just wanted to see if this is normal or maybe just wrong career for me ....

Think it's mainly down to lack of staff but, so far been left with 2 other poelts to bang up the worst wing on the prison, with no experienced staff nearby . Got a telling off from 1 So for doing something another So told me to do .
All of the above is just little examples but I've done lots of security work previously, just thinking it's not suited for me personally, just wanted to see if anyone has been through the same this early on . I know that I am not the only one in my intake group questioning the decision to join
