Planning For Your Future Now
Sometimes you may feel pressure to change the direction of your life. Many of your friends have completed or have made plans to attend college or vocational school, but you haven’t found anything that captures your imagination. At the same time, you don’t want to be stuck in a low paid hourly wage job with no benefits and little security. A job as a corrections officer at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) may be just what you’re looking for to help set you up for future success.
A Secure Job Now – Real Opportunity for the Future
Working for MDC is a great way to make money now, while also setting you up for future success and career flexibility. Our corrections officers receive steady pay and full benefits and our salary structure is transparent. You can make money working at a job that provides a positive benefit to the community. But you will also be saving money toward purchasing a home or for your retirement.
Once you’ve completed your initial probationary period, you become eligible for tuition help. You may not want to attend college now – but as you become established in your career, you may decide you would like to get a degree. Tuition assistance helps you pay for education and training to qualify for promotions. It also means you don’t have to worry about signing up for student loan debt.
After 25 years of service, Corrections Officers are eligible to retire with a lifetime pension. Our average retirement age is 43. That means you’ll have a guaranteed income while you’re still relatively young. Of course, you’re not required to retire at 43, but the option sure is nice!
