terrible company
Adult Tutor (Former Employee) –  ArizonaMarch 16, 2017
The upper management does not respect nor appreciate their employees. They expect their employees to work under a great deal of stress and conflict while receiving very little compensation.

Pretty Consistent Policies
Vocational Instructor (Former Employee) –  Grants, NMMarch 13, 2017
This is a good company to work for; you won't get a lot of extra time off, but the company has a fairly solid infrastructure. The job hours are consistent and a typical day is usually from 8 to 5. I was education staff, so I did not work at night. Officers look out for education for the most part and I learned that inmates are not such bad people to work with.
Pros
Benefits, such as insurance, holidays, vacation.
Cons
Lockdowns...sometimes you have to stay overtime.

CCA was fine back then.
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Tutwiler, MSMarch 1, 2017
The only thing I hated working at CCA back then was they would wait until it's time to get off and tell you that you have to stay and do another eight hour.

Pros/Cons
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 1, 2017
I enjoyed working at CCA while being there but, there were so many issues with upper management it's like they didn't know who was in charge. The longer I worked there the more I hated my job because all upper management cared about was themselves. They didn't care if you had a family they wanted you to work 24/7 no home life at all. Overall if they changed supervisors and found someone who actually cared about it's employees then it would be a great company to work for.
Pros
Over-time
Cons
No breaks, No days off

Favoritism is rampant in this facility
RN Charge Nurse (Former Employee) –  Whiteville, TNFebruary 13, 2017
If you are not in one of the cliques, you will be an outcast. No sense of teamwork. No support from upper management. The actual work involved is less than what us required at a typical hospital.
Pros
Pay is comparable
Cons
Favoritism, no staff encouragement, no sense of team/community

Mailroom Clerk (Current Employee) –  Alamo, GAJanuary 23, 2017
This company give you the pay but you also pay for it because they treat you like a robot. If you could just take care of what the policyholder call in for and that was it. This would be a wonderful company to work for.

CCA does not train their employees as needed for everyday job duties. Lack of teamwork is also lacking. There doesn't seem to be any concern for CO as well

Corrections Officer (Former Employee) –  Shelby, MTOctober 18, 2016
The staff that was in the leadership roles would back stab you when it benefited them. Worked none stop without getting rest to regroup. The leadership would take more days off when they wanted.
