I have enjoyed working at CEC.
IRC (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 16, 2015
I have enjoyed workind at CEC with the Supervisor and my co-workers. My team is family oriented. I get along well with others. I sit at the computer taking multiple Inbound calls. The hardest part is when I have an influx of calls. Sometimes they can be difficult, especially if I have an irate student. I have learned how to calm the student down and still get them over to Admissions. What I enjoy most is the friendliness of the work place. There is no disruption or bad tempers. Everyone is a joy to work with.

Typical first job

This job consisted of fixing arcade games and delivering food to table and keeping everything clean and sanitary. It was a lot of hard work and we rarely got breaks that were within the reasonable amount of time as per the state laws.

Varied work assignments
Correction Nurse (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: to evaluate whether individual was drug seeking or if there was indeed a medical issue.
A typical day at work would change daily. Completed sick call if any requested. Did annual physicals. Did weekly vital signs. Worked with MD 2 times a week for chronic care individuals. Ordered medication and passed medication as needed. Did mental health assessments, admissions and releases. Educated residents on medication and the importance of compliance. Audited charts for DOC compliance. Did some phlebotomy and scheduled individuals for follow up care with organizations such as Diabetic Training Classes, mammograms, and Workman's comp appointments.
The hardest part of the job was to work around their work schedule.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to help these individuals aclimate to change in environment. I learned the requirements for DOC procedures.
