Statewide Personnel Services

The division of Statewide Personnel Services better serves the public by providing information concerning current job openings, benefits, career paths, hiring procedures, and general data about MDOC hiring operations.

The MDOC, in conjunction with the Mississippi State Personnel Board, has developed a program to expedite the hiring process of correctional officers.   The program is called Rapid Hire.  Under the Rapid Hire program, correctional officer application packages are submitted directly to the MDOC for evaluation.  Provided positions are available, applicants are scheduled for the interview/screening process that is held at all three major facilities.  If correctional officer openings are not available, applicants are notified and applications remain on file for one year.  If position openings become available within that year, applicants who successfully pass the interview/screening process are notified within two to three weeks with reporting information.

If you have any questions, please contact the Division of Personnel Services at (601) 359-5696 or fax at (601) 359-5695.
