|WV Department of Corrections is offering recruits guaranteed pay raises|
HUNTINGTON - Would-be correctional officers and staff in West Virginia can score a $2,370 pay boost, in addition to locked-in raises both this year and next, if they join the state payroll by June 30.
All correctional employees will receive a $2,000 pay raise July 1. That will bring the starting salary of an entry-level correctional officer, for instance, to $28,664.
But the 5% hike for all state employees passed during the last legislative session will deliver the extra $2,370 for potential recruits - if they join the state payroll before the current budget year ends.
