They Minnesota Department of Corrections hosted a hiring event in the building across the street from the prison, hoping to fill the many openings they have statewide for corrections officers.
"There are times when just to keep the basic security functions running, we have to use mandatory overtime," said Associate Warden at the Stillwater prison, Victor Wanchena, "We haven't been able to keep pace with just the normal attrition from retirements, and people being promoted, and moving on to other jobs."
