    New hire in Marion, NC

    Good afternoon guys my name is Mark and I just got hired as a co3 in North Carolina, starting January 23 for orientation. I'm from out of state originally and am a little worried about the salary. $34k a year where I'm from gets you nothing. Basically I'm wondering what the pay increases are, if any? I can't see having a nice home and raising a family on this salary. Any input is appreciated. Glad to finally be in this field of work

    I have no idea what to say about the pay/pay increases... but welcome to the forum.

    I found this: https://ncdps.s3.amazonaws.com/s3fs-...re_low-res.pdf

    ...which basically tells you nothing :/ I'm sure you've seen it. I think there are some NCDOC staff here who can help you. 34k isn't much but like anything else, you get your foot in the door and go from there. The Federal system pays better in general if you're mobile.

    Thanks for the reply. And yea I figured if nothing else atleast it's a good start and some experience. Considering I can't find anything at all anywhere online on this topic, I assume there are no pay raises besides getting promoted and even those are minimal :/ but I know I didn't choose this line of work for the money lol

    Mark. Your best bet is to speak to your human resource officer. From what I know, keep your eyes and ears open. You will only get bonuses and increases if you don't get a write up.
