A Good place to work doing a tough job.
Detention Deputy (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLJanuary 31, 2016
I worked there when it was attached to the Sherriff's Office. Starting pay is a little low but raises came fast. Offered good benefits package with plenty of opportunities for free training that can be applied toward promotions requirements. Good education reimbursement policy. Supervisor for the most part backed up their officers. Most officers could be trusted to back you up.
Pros
every other weekend off
Cons
the job

The sheriff and Deputy chief treat their employees very poor. They micromanage. They believe in destroying employees rather then teaching them and encouraging them.

the politics

A good jail job.
Detention Deputy (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLSeptember 9, 2015
A more secure jail than some. Always hiring because of being under staffed. Don't expect to take a vacation or have days off for family events. They do offer good training opportunities.They treat reservists and guardsmen poorly.
Pros
pay was good. every other weekend off.
Cons
Half the work force were professional officers and supervisors.

Important job.
Detention Deputy (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLSeptember 2, 2015
The day starts and ends with head counts. Shifts are 12 hours and you will work a rotating shift (days and nights within the same week). You will be responsible for up to 100 inmates at a time. They are always hiring because they can't keep staff. Time off or vacations for employees is next to impossible. They have very little respect for those that serve as military guardsmen or reservists because of staffing issues.
Pros
job security
Cons
pay, some supervisors are inmate friendly.

Interesting place to work

Pros
Benefits, job security, career field I truly enjoy

No breaks, long hours, no opportunity for advancement, low pay, underappreciated, poor management

Excellent deputies to work with but poor county government.
Deputy Sheriff (Former Employee) –  PensacolaAugust 2, 2013
This was a great place to work with regards to the officers. Great place and awesome first line supervisors. The problem is that there are no raises and no step increases in pay. If you work there less than 6 years you will be making the same money as a new hire. This is a great place to gain experience before moving to a bigger agency.
Pros
great teammates and first line supervisors
Cons
low pay and no step raises

Admin (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FlJuly 6, 2013
Started out in Civil Division, where we processed subpoenas for county court. Attention to detail was crucial. I was personaly selected by the Sheriff to come and be a receptionist for his executive office. Loved working with all employees from both departments.
Pros
the experience and knowledge learned
Cons
pay scale was very low

Average county department
Law Enforcement Officer (Current Employee) –  Pensacola, FlAugust 17, 2012
The most enjoyable part of working for a mid to large size agency has been the opportunity to move around within the department to not only avoid job burnout, but learn specialized duties and allow oneself to find a niche in law enforcement that can be identified as his/her specialty.
Pros
take home cars, leave accrual, health and retirement benefits
Cons
lack of raises, advancement within specialized units
