The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is still looking for a few good men and women to fill their vacancies.

On Monday at Retro Fitness in Yorkville, the Sheriff’s Office held the first of six job fairs to find new recruits.

Members of the Sheriff’s Office were on-hand to talk about a career as a correction officer. They talked about job requirements, benefits and the hiring process, which includes passing a physical fitness test.

The agency has both full- and part-time positions available, with the salary for the full-time positions beginning at $40,348 after basic training.

“Well, you have to take a civil service test. We hold it every other year,” said Casey Lewis, a correction officer with the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office. “There’s a physical fitness test that you would take. There's a lot of upward mobility at the jail, a lot of room for advancement. Overall, it's a great career, great salary, great benefits, good job.”

If you missed Monday’s job fair, the Sheriff’s Office will be at the center court of Sangertown Square Mall in New Hartford Monday, Aug. 20 through Friday, Aug. 24, from 12-8 p.m.
