"Interacting with staff and inmates on a daily basis continually molds me into becoming a better leader both in work and in life. There is such a wealth of knowledge to glean from within the DOC."
Micah Doggett’s pursuit of personal and professional growth has been central to his career path. After getting his start in retail working in customer service, sales and finally as a store manager, Michah decided to apply to the commonwealth.
Today, Micah works as a commissary clerk for the Department of Corrections, where he is responsible for supervising 10 inmates and distributing commissary to a population of around 2,100 inmates on a weekly basis.
Commissary clerks are responsible for the receipt, storage, and distribution of inmate commissary orders. They verify order accuracy, inspect the quality of goods, maintain records, issue commissary credits and ensure that controlled items are properly secured.
