Sorry guys, but due to the transition, people have been quitting and getting fired so we are extremely short staffed and so I've been working 4 days every week = 100+hours every 2 weeks.
As a private company vs a State DOC, employees are much easier to fire, but just as tedious to hire so have patience if you have an interview or have received a call from Wexford. And if you have not heard from them in a timely manner, CALL, CALL, and CALL again - really. They (HR) are swamped right now so call and be the sqeaky wheel.
As for how I like Wexford, I'm not impressed with their level of communication and organization. They seem to be very haphazard and have even more layers of paperwork than the DOC.
If you'd like to chat and ask more in depth questions, PM me with your e-mail and we can chat in private.
In the end, I really enjoy workng at the prison and could not imagine working in a hospital where I have doctors running around 24/7 giving orders. Where I am, if I have a question, I will call you otherwise, the doctors just stay out of our way or are not even on the premises.
And yes they do hire new grads. IMO - as I was hired as a NG, if you do have what it takes to work in a prison, you will do great, if you need a lot of hand holding, you should work in a hospital.
