Moral is down. New Director is not well liked. Pay is low.
NVMHI - Assistant (Current Employee) – Falls Church, VA – March 4, 2015
The job is not bad. Senior Manager sucks. There is no more to tell without giving away my position here. There are 3 shifts you can work. You need to punch into a time clock for all positions. Pay is bi-monthly, not bi-weekly so it is hard to coordinate bill paying with your paycheck.

Child Support Enforcement Specialist (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – May 8, 2017
Working for the state you are not in an environment that encourages advancement or creative thinking. you are told to do and you do it. There is no room for improvement of processes and they do not take suggestions.
Juvenile Facilty worker (Current Employee) – Bon Air, VA – April 20, 2017
Worked for DJJ for several years. The new mission is awesome, but unfortunately they kept too many of the old staff to make it work like it should. Very hatefilled environment if you are not part the click. A lot of racial tension.
Many top administrators and veteran staff that don't want things to change.
Good pay and benefits, but not an enjoyable place to work.
Food Operations Manager Assistant (Current Employee) – Big Stone Gap, VA – April 17, 2017
Pay and benefits are great for the area I live in, but work schedule is almost constantly changing, at times to the point of working 8 days straight, 6 Of which are 12 Hour shifts before getting a day off. Unable to schedule and keep appointments, such as doctor appointments, due to being told to schedule them to be on days off andschedule changing so often that I am unable to schedule an appointment for a day off since I Dont know what days I will be off two weeks from now, much less 2-3 months from now. Management tends to blame people for stuff being done wrong when they weren't even working, management tends to play "favorites". No room for advancement without relocating. No "real" raises, every time we get a raise the cost of our mandatory pretax fees such as insurances increases to the point of taking all of our increase in wages. Forced to put down that we take a 30 minute lunch break even if we do not take one, which we very seldom get to do. On the floor for 8-12 hours a day with convicted murderers and most of the time our radio's do not work which makes it even more dangerous than it should be.
work schedule changes, told when we can use vacation time, not enough compensation for working a very dangerous job, "backstabbing", lack of communication, the only equipment we have to rely on (radio) If something happens doesn't work most of the time
