Stressful environment.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Job description of a Supervisor has changed over the last few years due to reforms ie Parole Board decisions after high profile media cases. Youth Justice also playing a large role in this and the high amount of Remandee's and Protection Prisoners incaserated. Due to this so many incidents of Self Harm, suicide, assault not just prisoner on prisoner but statt assaults also.

Pros

Ongoing work, this industry is never going to close.

Cons

Night Shift, Assaultative behaviour by inmates increasing. Less staff to deal with more prisoners.

Difficult work environment within a maximum security correctional facility

Have spent previous two and a half years working in the Stores & Records wing of the Barwon Prison being a maximum security correctional facility. My position as a VPS2 employee offers little in the way of professional development and advancement. The work I performed in this role was onerous, labour intensive and not appropriately rewarded in respect of salary and conditions

Pros

Job Security

Cons

Long hours with little opportunity of professional development & advancement
