LOL...ten years from working there I will tell you this people do tend to cheat on their spouses male and female more than any other place I've ever worked lol...That's why the divorce rate in the department of corrections is one of the largest; that's a fact you can look that up compared to other occupations. When you go to work it's like you enter another world and you have a working family and you have your family at home. You can't talk about your day at work with your home family because there's just no way that they'll really understand. That's why you get involved with your friend or (work) family and before long they know just as much about you as your family at home. Most of the time when a person does get a divorce they usually end up with someone they work with. Other than that the benefits are good and the pay is good for around here. The job itself is mostly mental more than physical. Good Luck...I met some of the best people in my co-workers people that I now consider family.

Wow... this person gets on here and tells you some facts about working at the place and you assume they are one of the ones that cause it.

I've never worked at the prison, but I do know so many that do. Not all, but a good few of them have cheated or do cheat on their spouses. That's not to say that you will cheat if you work there. I know a lot that don't cheat. I guess it all really boils down to the person and how happy they are in their relationships.

its really no worse than these factories.anywhere men and women interact there will be adultery comitted.but when you add the added factor of stress it can be overblown.ive slept w/ probably 20 of my coworkers in 10 years.

As a sometime official visitor at various prisons, I've found officers at Henning to be very courteous, repectful, and helpful when needed. As far as I'm concerned, they can sleep with whomever they want as long as they do a good job.

I can say this I would not recommened anyone to work there. Policies are out the window, what is right is wrong and whats wrong is right. The inmates are not the problem it is the other officers. Correctional Officers are nothing more than a babysitter. The inmates are the ones running the place. By this I mean at anytime they can take over. Alot of officers there do cheat and some don't. Some are there just to their eight hours and hit the door. Working in a prison is a alot of mental stress and alot can not deal with it. All I can say is that I am glad I finally got away from there.
