    After 6 years I finally got a promotion at the jail. I'm now a Corporal!! Those who work in law enforcement may not be impressed, but in those 6 years we only had 2 promotion terms. 1 three months after I started and the other less than a year ago. I'm happy as hell to finally get those stripes, and of course the money that comes with it. Free beer around the board (just don't come looking for me to collect).

    Congrats.

    I was looking at getting on with the local jail, but they make people work crazy OT. There are people there pulling down 70K a year in their first few years there, but they're putting in 60-70 hour weeks and getting burned out before they get anywhere.

    We have a lot of jails like that around here, but I guess ours is lucky. We work 12 hours a day, but one week we only work 2 days and the next week is 5 days. The pay isn't all that great, but it's still one of the highest paid jobs in our town. Cost of living is pretty low here to so if you have a job here paying over 30k a year your doing good. Our Director only makes a little over 50k a year.

    And thanks for the congrats guys.

    I'm not in jail dude, I'm a Corrections Officer in a jail, I work there and make sure all those bad guys and sexual preditors don't escape and come visit you.

    And Jux know's your mom cause I hooked them up about 12 or 13 years ago. :) 

    NotFastEnough: Come on down! Sumter is actually a nice place to live. What we don't have here can be reached in about 30 minutes any direction.
