CDCR/ CA State prison schedule

  1. Hello, I am interested in working for the CDCR/CA State Prison system in Northern CA. I was searching their website and could not find any info on schedules. Is it 4 10-HR shifts? What are the typical shift hours 7am-5pm, etc? Nights, weekend requirements? Is OT an expectation?
    Any info would be helpful!

    8hr shifts 6-2, 2-10, 10-12. OT is expected where I am. Your schedule is set, your RDOs (days off) are determined by your set schedule. Some people luck out and get good RDOs others get Tuesdays and Wednesday's off.

    RDO's are set but if you find a good swap partner you can extend them. You work 16, 16 & 8 (or in reverse order) and are off for 4 days, but that's after your probationary period, I believe. OT is expected and often mandated.

    RNs can swap off the bat, LVNs have to wait till the end of probation.
