Easiest job in the world made to be the hardest
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Quincy, FL – June 23, 2017
I worked at Gadsden C.I. for 6 years 3 of which i was in a supervisory position. This place has absolutely no structure, the management is clearly at fault. You know its bad when in less then 5 years you had 2 different wardens, 3 different assistant wardens,, 3 different investigators, 3 different chiefs of security and countless correctional officers. Promotions are a joke and never given to the most deserving individuals. All the correctional officers have very little knowledge of their job duties mostly from being uneducated or young fresh out the academy. The actual work is so easy but made so hard by the fact that there is no backing from management or the lieutenants. The lieutenants are all undeserving of their positions and are liars and cut throat. Staff will get fired for the wrong reasons and management will do it with a smile on their face. The turn over rate is insane and the funny part is that instead of keeping your good workers they rather rehire the ones who quit on them. Inmates are more honest then staff. Officers having inappropriate relationships with inmates are still employed while others who work hard are terminated for no reason. The facility is so under staffed that you have to work a mandatory 32 hours of overtime, this place does not care if you have a family or not, while others get to go home with no repercussions.
Theres money to be made but not always by choice
Management, supervisors, no honesty or integrity
