No accountability and too much micro managing
Mid level manager Wind River Job Corps (Former Employee) –  Riverton, WYMay 19, 2016
The biggest problem with MTC is that they expect you to do more with less for an unreasonable amount of time. There is no accountability for them or DOL. MTC will blame everything on DOL and when DOL reps arrive they put everything on MTC, and it's the employees that get screwed. Center Director had own agenda, and followed operating procedures when it fit her needs but if not she just bypassed them. Even when coporate staff were notified of issues they just ignored it becayse they dont wabt to admit they made a mistake on who they hired. Too much micro managing! Let people do the job they were hired to do! There was constant turnover due to management issues. The center still doesn't have a perimeter fence and it's been open a year, yet they constantly cram safety and security down your throat. I lasted as long as I could. I really liked working with the students but when you can't trust your boss and they will throw you under the bus without hesitation it's time to go.
Pros
Students, co workers, salary
Cons
Management, ambiguous rules amd expectations, double standards, lack of trust

I enjoyed doing something differant every day.
Classification clerk (Former Employee) –  Raymondville, TXDecember 22, 2016
I completed all the daily intake of all the detainees for the day, I learned how to take count of all the detainees, management was not very helpful, I was able to work with all the co workers and assist them in other things, the hardest part was count time making sure all detainees were accounted for, taking a lunch break and getting to know everyone.
Pros
keeping busy with all the work for day
Cons
when certain employees were hard to work with

MTC is a great company to work for if you're just starting out in the job market.
Food Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 11, 2017
MTC lives by there BIONIC code. Believe It Or Not I Care. You have an opportunity to cross train. My co-workers were a pleasure to work with. Most enjoyable part of my job was taking part in the rehabilitation of the offenders.
Pros
MTC does not mind you Taking of to take care of family issues.
Cons
Insurance is kind of expensive. Pay is not that great.

love the co-workers but administration is not great
Horticulture Aide (Former Employee) –  Quincy, ILJanuary 3, 2017
You can get lost in your work when you give it your all; however you're job is not secure here. Administration does not support their employees like they should. You are expendable regardless of what you have given to the company, but the co-workers are generally great.
Pros
rewarding
Cons
does not appreciate employees

Worst job ever
Medical Staff (Former Employee) –  EMCF Meridian MSDecember 3, 2016
EMCF Meridan MS.....worst job ever. Security staff doesn't do their job properly and puts all staff in jeopardy. Management staff plays favorites. Allows or assists in getting contraband into the prison.

Unorganized or Unethical
Career Advisor (Former Employee) –  Billings, MTAugust 22, 2016
I went through the entire hiring process, which was long and cumbersome, and the day before training, I received a phone call stating that this position had been eliminated due to not having a space available to lease. They are either unorganized or unethically retracted their offer. The human resource person didn't seem to care. Also, because of their job offer, I turned down an interview with a different company. I would never trust MTC because they are contractors and do not have to be accountable.

CO (Current Employee) –  Marion ohioNovember 30, 2016

Wow! Who would ever want to work for this company
RN (Former Employee) –  Nowhere, OKJuly 30, 2016
With reading all the reviews, I would never apply to this company. How unfortunate that places like this even exist. It sounds as though there is no team work, and people actually fighting for their job? How sad s that.
Pros
Free meal
Cons
Management, employees with seniority, low pay, high turnover, bullies.

Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Riverton, WYJuly 14, 2016
Poor management. They let the students run the place . They let students get arrested smoke dope and come back drunk. Then give them their bonuses for graduating without proper completion of the program. Management reprimands the staff but not students. Countess infractions according to DOL standards. Pay is substandard for the work.

Excellent company with wonderful benefit
Warden (Former Employee) –  Walnut Grove MississippiJuly 29, 2014
MTC is an excellent company with wonderful benefits. My position was Warden in a correctional facility that involved managing the entire operation, This environment dose not have a typical day "no" day is the same. I learned to adjust to this changing environment and to be ready for changes as they occurred. The management team demonstrate superior executive ability under a variety of circumstances, which obtain the full support of every department. I developed a positive working relationship with my co-workers which build on mutual dependence and understanding. The most difficult part of the job was devote appropriate time and effort to the development of staff professional competence. The most enjoyable part of the job help staff achieve optimal levels of personal performance and accomplishment.
Pros
Wonderful benefits
Cons
Managing very difficult people

Morally bankrupt, rudderless, and will drive you mad
Mangement, corporate office (Former Employee) –  Centerville, UTMarch 6, 2013
MTC has managed to combine incredibly poor senior leadership and tight-fisted corporate bureaucratic micromanagement into a rage-inducing swirling storm of terrible work experience. The senior leaders in corrections don't empower their people, the good people in HR feel helpless and neutered by the sr HR executive, who fires HR people as casually as going out to eat. The team operates in fear, paralyzed and ineffective. The company is stingy with pay and benefits, instead ensuring owners can buy yet another condo or vacation property.

If you're considering this place, think long and hard before you accept. It beats unemployment and poverty, but just barely.
Cons
lots

Ok company to work for
Residential Advisor & Records Specialist (Former Employee) –  Clearfield, UTSeptember 17, 2013
Overall review is that it is an ok company to work for. Not much room for internal advancement within the organization and recent changes in management have impacted overall employee morale. Not much recognition for work done. More attention is given to the students and not enough to staff. Low work morale. Benefits are ok and the rate of pay is a bit on the low end for what other companies pay for those same positions.
Pros
casual work environment, company parties twice a year
Cons
Low work morale, ok benefits, no room for internal advancement

MTC has many unadvertised perks
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 9, 2015
MTC is a great company because of the total benefit package. However, each MTC workplace culture varies based upon the management of the location. The Management team at Potomac Job Corps Center was unorganized, unfair, biased, and without vision or focus.
Pros
Discounted lunch, free gym, free parking, great insurance benefits
Cons
Terrible management

Corrections Officer (Former Employee) –  Marion, OHJuly 21, 2016
MTC is a very nice place to work. The administration staff is outstanding, including some of the captains, lieutenants, and sergeants. The overtime there is like no other in the world. You can be required to work multiple 16 hour shifts in a row, and receive no break in-between. The people you work with will soon become like family.

Not for anyone who may be outspoken
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Quincy, FlAugust 16, 2015
This company is based out of Utah and clearly has no idea of how Florida deals with their inmate population. Its like they just came to legislation, gave them a bunch of false promises as to how they can do it cheaper than the STATE System for the Department of Corrections. The turn over rate of Officers is very high and the morale is steadily declining. Promotions are given based on who you know, or if you are just a "YES MAN/WOMAN" that can be easily manipulated if you didn't know any better. Some days are easy sailing, while others can get out of hand and things get handled in the most unprofessional way. They offer a great deal of programs for the inmates, but can't even give a decent raise to staff, or even motivate/compliment staff. Its Lts against Sgts....Sgts against Sgts....Sgts against CO'S....Unit Mangers against Case Managers...etc etc. Some are just soooo gullible and will listen to whatever an INMATE has to say (more than likely a lie) and will hold grudges against whomever. This is truly a place that needs to be reconstructed from Head to Toe! You pretty much are guaranteed 32 hours of OT every pay period for various reasons: 1. Staff shortage 2. To get them before they get you 3. Some supervisor playing dirty games, Etc etc. They are bound for lawsuit after lawsuit in my honest opinion. If you do decide to come to MTC-Gadsden Correctional Facility, politely stand your ground, and keep documentation of everything! Its not about what you do, it's how you do it, and handle business accordingly!
Pros
Overtime (if you like an easy paycheck)
Cons
No structure, management can't manage, inmates are just out of hand.
