I am travelling from Bolton . Quite happy about it being residential to be honest - be easier to swot up in the evening if necessary rather than being at home getting interrupted by the family :slty: . You travelling far Morgs27 ?

Ill see you there gents, Im 50 mins away in the Kidderminster area, so it's a daily drive for me. Was nice of them to call me last night at 9pm to offer me the spot.

How long had you been waiting since your RAD guys? 5 months for me.

Also I have been reading up people's reviews on life as a Prison Officer, has anyone ever got anything positive to say about the job?

See you there ! Debating the drive myself on a couple of occasions just to break it up a little bit, only 1hour 30mins. 3 months I was waiting, I thought it would never come around but here I am. In all honesty I have seen mixed reviews, but I can say that around 60% of them have been positive. I suppose everyone has different experiences, obviously with different establishments.

My wait was quite short ...2 months since RAD...Seems to be mixed opinions on the Prison officer role being good /bad..But the new recruits seem to be nearly all positive from what I've read..Im excited for the challenge anyway.
