Reviews about Pay & benefits for Correctional Officer at Ontario Public Service

Lots of career options

I enjoyed the ability to apply to other OPS jobs within, as well as the potential for advancement in my job. Benefits are good for full timers, but there is non available for casuals.

Correctional work pays well awful environment

Great$$$ terrible work environment. Screw up move up is the motto most supervisors are sub standard and prisons are a breeding ground for depression after years of working there and meeting hundreds of staff that have PTSD due to stress or an unsafe environment I give the job a 3 out of 10


Benefits tons of overtime


Poor management directed differently by each new government
