TSDC, the place where one can write their own paycheque.

If you need the money, this is the institution to be at. If you want to feel safe, this is not the institution to be at.

I see. What region are you from? Was Stratford one of your picks? Also did they send you any email after your interview? I had my interview on Oct 18, and i know that references were contacted however i havent received any update since interview.

In answer to your question, I personally havent heard much about Stratford, but I've heard hours are not that great.

Retirement post.

From what I heard of hours at one point, no Ot and causals did not receive their 40 hours. Way below.

If you are looking to get full time there I would say you would be waiting 7-10 years.

If there was a good jail to work at in the province, that would be an excellent retirement post.

Stratford staff have little to no OT. Bot always getting your 40 hours. Quite a few senior officers.
Sometimes the staff are utilized at EMDC for help covering hospital escorts.

But, it is a very cushy go and work. Very quiet with primarily 'non' issue inmates.

And a good union would never allow this to happen.

Must be a problem there when you have 300 causals and 200 full time staff and can can’t staff the building.

Ah okay. I ended up turning down Stratford and asked to be waitlisted, any idea how that works? The recruitment manager told me it's pretty low-risk that I won't be offered something, but just curious if people ever go without an offer after that.

Like, wait list to do COTA or already a CO and waiting for a transfer ?

Happens all the time people turn down and wait.

But, rumour on the street is they are re-amping COTA and no classes set in stone.
