Things could have changed over the years, but the deputies I knew said there was actually a waiting list to get assigned to the jail. They said most first assignments were out in the eastern parts of the county, or Moreno Valley and Temecula/Lake Elsinore.
Assignments in Riverside (including jail/civil) were highly desired.
