Detox Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 4, 2014
The work is not that bad, I mean it is in a jail, but the management and staff? horrible! The new DON he is the HSA's puppet. From management on down this is not a company for anyone. I've been there 1 year. Worst year of my life! The more you work in corrections the less likely you are to get hired anywhere else. Because all you know how to do is push – more... a cart. – less
Charge Registered Nurse (Former Employee), East Meadow, NY – January 24, 2014
Correctional nursing is tough, and the environment at the jail in which I worked made day-to-day work functions difficult at best. The inmates are actually the best part of the job because they really need the services that you are providing.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Pompano Beach, FL – November 14, 2013
Pros: per diem-flexable work schedule
Cons: night shift. environment
A typical shift involves passing medications to inmate, providing medical assistant and monitoring behavior. While working at Armor I have learned how to better manage my time. I would say the hardest part of my job is my work environment, and the most enjoyable part is being able to help someone in need regardless of the circumstances.
LPN (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – August 27, 2013
Pros: pay is decent, fellow pod nurses are great support, deputies are wonderful to work with
Cons: management, supervisors
All upper management is deceitful and dishonest with staff. They hire supervisors who have no experience with dealing with management or staff issues, and the great ones they do hire are either fired or quit because standing up for their staff is essentially prohibited. After 5 years they still treat their staff horribly, their are no raises, no incentives, – more... yet they expect you to be there for anything they need at a drop of a hat. The supervisors, especially at night, have no business being in charge of others let alone other peoples medical decisions when needed. Even things that are federally protected you will be harassed about. Don't think about lodging a complaint, either. Nothing will be done about it. Hopefully when they are done being investigated about all the deaths that happen under their care, Armor will lose their contracts. – less
Corrections Nurse (Former Employee), Port Charlotte, FL – September 23, 2012
The worst company I have ever worked for. My direct supervisor was incapable of putting out a regular schedule and could not even implement one for longer than one month after the employees put one together for the shift and all agreed to it and every shift was filled. When you voiced concerns or complaints to the immediate supervisor, no action was – more... taken. When this was taken to the next level of supervision, there was never any action taken there, either. The supervisor continually put out memos and directives with threats of the consequences if the information was not followed. This created the worst back-stabbing atmosphere I have ever worked in.
The health plan offered one primary physician in the county of employment. There was no place to take a break or lunch, so most staff did not take lunch breaks. The physical environment was filthy.
This is not a company you want to work for. – less
