New job Just Emily :) 2 kids; Casa grande, Az, United States 9726 posts

Start my new job tomorrow. I'm slightly nervous. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and the lady who hired me and the warden know I'm pregnant already but I've never worked in a prison even though my sad has my whole life (in fact he works at this one) so I'm slightly nervous about the totally new environment. I have four weeks of classes before I start my job in admin and they've already told me I'll have minimal involvement in the pressure points classes and the classes on minor self defense like how to escape different holds and such. Which is fine cause I've had that training from my dad my whole life.... I just fell slightly nervous about if I'll be taken seriously as a pregnant female should I have to interact with an inmate.

I'll be an admin clerk. So I shouldn't have much if any interaction with inmates. Apparently there's a couple who have proven trustworthy that come in and clean but that's it. And I hear they just keep to themselves.

Sounds like a job I would like. I have a degree in Office Administration, Administrative Assistant. I think you'll be safe if it's only ones that are trustworthy, that you may be interacting with.

Oh I never worried about my safety lol. Just if they'll take me seriously. Pregnant women aren't very Intimidating lol. But yeah I'm hoping I'll like it. I did office work for my last two years in the navy and I loved it and had awesome evals so I'm hoping this will be similar.
