Sergeant of Training/Campus Peace Officer (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – May 18, 2016
Great place to work. Highly recommended. I currently higher new employees as needed per one of my many job duties. Conduct and manage background investigations. Responsible for training requirements. Administrator position.
I was a police communications operator. I handled the phones and radio simultaneously. I work on a daily basis with state troopers and crime investigation agents, as well as Texas Rangers to retrieve the information needed for a case or a traffic stop. I enjoyed this job very much, but could not handle the rotating shift work. My coworkers were amazing and we were more like a family. I miss that job dearly, but had to make this hard decision to leave for my family. I would recommend this job to anyone.
Correctional Officer II (Current Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – April 7, 2016
I would start a typical day going through a metal gates closing, knowing I would be on alert at all times. My hands would start to sweat, my heart was beating fast knowing at anytime I could struck by a person that was put behind bars. I was there to secure and watch to make sure everyone was okay each day. I used to work in adjustment hearings, traffic or would view inmate movement at all times.
State of Maryland Government, Office Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – February 28, 2016
I will never work there again. Management is so horrible. They let people get away with murder. They give positions away to people who don't deserve them. They let supervisors talk to people like they are children. they need to revamp the whole system and management needs to go back to school.
Correctional Food Service Officer (Former Employee) – Vanceboro, NC – February 27, 2016
Work was a standard 8 hour shift working every other weekend. Managers were professional and followed protocol according to the guidelines. I learned different work skill that allowed me to meet the needs of many people from a diverse background. I also learned how to manage a large group of people and maintain order along with the production of the company. The hardest part of this job was to deal with the stress that comes with working in a prison.
Great Benefits, Stability
Stressful work environment, Discrimination, Favoritism
Accountant (Former Employee) – Meriden, CT – February 15, 2016
Before computers brought in. We had to complete by hand, a certain number of computer sheets by pencil. This showed the exact location of every accident in Connecticut. Very monotonous and boring. you were rated on how many you completed every hour.
It is hard to work here but still I get along with it, and it doesn't do anything bad.
Clerk Typist III (Current Employee) – Division of Correction and Rehabilitation – January 17, 2016
My job here is complicated sometimes but the salary is too low. I sometimes gets complaints from other employees but I still gets going on the way. I don't even care what complaints I get to hear, as long as I know that i did my works in a right way.
Detailed, fast paced, large call volume, heavy deadlines, attention to detail
Clerk IV - Administration Division (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – December 14, 2015
Typical day starts w entering cdl hazmat applications, answering phones from CDL drivers w questions on their application for hauling hazmat materials. Entering citations against CDL drivers records, pulling CDL drivers that have relocated to that state from their previous state of license and ensure that all information has been transferred properly. Pulling information from boxes or that is old from a database. Accuracy and speed was the goal each day. Management was very strict in all areas, example, attendance, break and lunches, and answering phones. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the pay raises, where it took a literal act of congress in order to get funded. The training was trial and error. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was fast paced and different everyday.
