No new employee training
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) –  South CarolinaFebruary 17, 2016
Worked 2 days for CCS, left due to no management support, inadequate training, no structure to follow. I'm a seasoned Nurse with correctional experience, but when absolutely no training is given on required paperwork that CCS wants, and the many standing protocols that they want implemented, I do not feel like having myself and my license put on the line. Plus, will tell you one thing and do another. I was hired full-time, days, but then was put on full-time, nights, 7pm to 7am, sorry but I can do home care at the same pay, days, and be able to sit down. Far as it goes and medical care for those incarcerated, they do provide good care, or at least try and are serious about it. Probably, would of tried to stay, but only if given day shift as told.
Pros
15 PTO days immediately, matching 401k
Cons
About everything else.

Tread Carefully
Probation Officer (Former Employee) –  Sarasota, FLFebruary 11, 2016
Management created a living nightmare for all employees. Little to no training provided after being hired, and if any mistake is made the blame is placed solely on you. Not sure if it's the company culture or just this supervisor, but run for your life.
Pros
You get your own office.
Cons
Being treated like dirt. Terrible pay, and almost useless benefits.

management has no concept of whats actually going on with staff and residents
mht (Former Employee) –  indiantown flOctober 17, 2015
this was the worst experience i have ever had in this field . the training is a joke. they focus more on where the management and doctors went to school than training how to properly address and treat the residents so that the employee and the client stay safe. they down played giving the direct care staff pertinent information on an extremely dangerous resident that resulted in a serious incident involving a mht almost loosing their life, and when the ceo was asked what steps were being taken to ensure staff safety we were told that it was the first incident of that kind so nothing. if you like your life dont go
Pros
nice employees
Cons
no raises for anyone in 5 years

Unpleasant work environment
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYJanuary 4, 2016
Staff was generally miserable and not helpful. Nurses bullied each other. Salary was ok. Management was nice and tried to be accommodating, but staff weren't team players, staff wasn't friendly. Lot's of weird tension in the office.
Pros
compensation wasn't horrible
Cons
short breaks, and depressing atmosphere

This was the most hostile environment that I have ever worked
Medical (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMDecember 7, 2015
Very busy environment but little support. Makes it clear that you are expendable. If they get a complaint from contractor, employees are investigated and thrown under the bus. They have to have a scape goat. Busy turn around. Nurses don't stay long. You're luck if you get a year in. Policies are changed a lot. At any time you may see the HSA or the DON escorted out of the door and mug shots put up on web site telling corrections not to allow this person to re-enter the building---who in their right mind would want to? Very hostile working environment. Lots of meetings that are not meaningful. No opportunity to vent feelings or suggestions. Does not give good references to your new potential employees. Don't work here, don't do it!
Pros
You're an angel your first two weeks
Cons
Poor benefits, poor leadership, broken promises, very few days off. uses accumulated PTO for holidays, sick time and vacations. Most people don't have enought time off to rest and center.

lack of comepetend management
Mental health professional (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMOctober 24, 2015
Poor management if you have a concern you are told to suck it up pretty much "don't bother me." I never felt that management had their employees back and would allow them to be fired, without any consideration. There were some good workers there, but they were never appreciated. A lot of gossip, people doing their own thing, without reprimand making it an unprofessional and unfulfilling place to work.

The kitchen is a terrible place to work!
Kitchen worker (Former Employee) –  Conroe TXAugust 25, 2015
HR has blinders on as to what kind of workplace the kitchen is. Management of kitchen can not be depended on as the director is hardly ever in kitchen. Is either constantly on a smoke break or claiming to be in meetings. Also has blinders on as there's so few employees who will show or who wish to show up for their shifts. No opportunity for advancement anywhere in the facility unless you have a degree. Once in kitchen, you are stuck in kitchen unless you wish to be in the units with the psychiatric patients, breaking up fights.
Pros
Free food(bad food)
Cons
Food is not healthy, hardly any time to rest in a non stop workplace, Fellow employees are miserable and very uncooperative.

Company has bitten off more than they can chew
healthcare (Current Employee) –  Hagerstown, MDOctober 30, 2015
CCS recently merged with a Conmed and, at that time, many changes were promised to improve benefits. However, at this time the benefits remain poor (in fact, the few holidays we had were reduced). Additionally, for those that require CEUS to maintain licensure employees are expected to pay out of pocket and without reimbursement as well as use PTO. HR routinely forgets to grant employees acquired PTO and is slow to correct the issue. Employees are required to use PTO (even non-essential staff) for holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving. If salaried there are no bonuses or perks for working on such days. While the number of PTO days granted is fair it is quickly eaten up by holidays and CEU/training days.



Another frustrating aspect of CCS is the lack of communication between leadership, which is constantly changing. New policies and forms are introduced constantly and without consistency between leadership.

I have had this job
Mental Health Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Elkhart, INJune 23, 2015
I have had this job for 6 years. Most of the reviews here are written by medical staff and are not consistent with my experience as a counselor. First, Correct Care Solutions is a growing company with opportunities for advancement.
The job is primarily counseling. The jail population is very similar to the patients you see at a community mental health center. You provided counseling to those with chronic mental illness to keep them as stable as possible. Another element is suicide prevention services which includes completing risk assessments and counseling those who are suicidal. In this role you would provide in-service education to medical and corrections staff. The third group of patients seen are those who are in crisis.
The job includes supervision of one or two other counselors,. There are some administrative tasks such as completing monthly reports and participating in management meetings.
Overall it is a great job with good compensation for someone who likes to work in a fast paced environment. It is never boring!
Pros
great co-workers and excellent supervisor; good pay
Cons
there are a lot of details to learn

Poor management and lack of communication
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNMay 2, 2016
The company was great when I first started but quickly went downhill. They offer opportunities for advancement but then have a lack of leadership, communication, and training. They will tell you your job description is one thing then expect something else. They even say that you need to work extra hours just because you were given a special project which is not part of your regular duties. CCS is not a good place to work unless all you want to do is work.
Pros
A Paycheck and a few great co-workers
Cons
Management, communication, training, unrealistic expextations

If comaraderie is important to you, don't apply
Mental Health Professional (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSMarch 2, 2016
Lack of care about employees as people with families and needs. Not reasonable to need 30 days notice for use of PTO time. People need appointments and their kids get sick, snow days, etc. Also, lack of positive feedback but plenty of negative. No concern for many hours of hard work mental health staff put in but quick to point out negatives. If you need people who converse while eating lunch in the breakroom, or basic comaraderie to be happy, don't apply. Not a healthy atmosphere long term.
Pros
Pros-casual friday and water cooler, holiday lunch
Cons
cons-have to give 30 days notice to take ANY time off

Beware of this company.
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  ColoradoMarch 24, 2016
Beware - of this company. Pulled a bait and switch on me and still haven't been paid.

Get everything in writing. I was offered one job in administration and then ended up working shifts waiting for the administrative job to open-still waiting.....Oh and I last worked two weeks ago, still waiting to get paid for 10, 12 hour shifts.

It is no wonder they can't keep nurses, always short handed.
Pros
If everything I was told would have been delivered, it would have been great.
Cons
See above.

horrible company
LPN - Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  TennesseeDecember 8, 2015
Very impersonal, you are just a number to them, much like their clients. Hard to contact anyone in human resources. No back up in management when and if you need it. No chain of command in use, it's office people who think they know about nursing stuff...and they don't, but try to tell you how to do your job anyway.
Pros
a paying job
Cons
no chain of comand

Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Conroe, TXNovember 10, 2015
Enjoyable and hard working team members. Management is very involved. There are only 3 shifts available.
A typical day at work would be walking through double doors , setting up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We provide special diets to those who have trouble diguesting foods. Put away inventory, surve staff during lunchtime and clean entire kitchen.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
healthcare

A typical work day at Correct Care
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Conroe, TXAugust 17, 2015
A typical work day would start at 5 a.m., 8:30 a.m., or 10a.m. I worked all the shifts and stayed over time when asked to. First I would go into the kitchen, view our daily prep schedule and communicate with the earlier shift about the daily prep list. Then wash my hands and prep all of the food.
Next, I would help the cook get ready for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And lastly work on the daily cleaning schedule.

Also filling out paper work, and making sure patients documents were properly guarded.
Responsible for clean dishes and silverware and that snacks were given at night.
Pros
Free lunches, relaxed bosses, family oriented environment.
Cons
Being part-time meant no healthcare benefits.

Management has no idea how to be proffesional and does not know how to talk to their employees. Corporate is not much help either, if you call with concerns you are labled a disgruntal employee. They require too much of their employees without giving them the tools to be succesfull at their jobs.

Correctional health RN working in booking intake nights can be a very stressful occupation.
Registered Nurse Correctional Health (Former Employee) –  Valhalla, NYApril 21, 2015
There are so many variables working in correctional health third tour the night shift; including colleagues, correctional officers, and the inmates.
Safety and accountability are of first concern when working in correctional health.
Night shift is a standard skeleton crew, and as work loads increase, and intake numbers fluctuating, and the burden of additional assignments including penitentary court medication/treatments make time management a huge part of this tour.
It is a high paying hourly position, with no union to back you up if necessary.
Overall it was a stressfull, well paying job that I no longer wish to expose my self to, and the negativity that accompanies such an occupation.
Pros
compensation
Cons
non-union position, overworked at times, safety concerns.
