Accountant/Accounting supervisor (Current Employee) – Devens, MA – September 27, 2017
Nice people, but management needs to have a strategic plan on how the center should move forward. Being a contracted company under anther contractor - call it a subcontractor, they need to focus on how they can match the same benefits the contractor offers to its workers.
Like with any subcontractor, your job security is at its lowest. Once the subcontractor loses its contract, your job can come to an end. Human Resources has less communication with the employees, and I think this is due to less experience within that department.
Good pay for highschool diploma everyone starts the same. But this place is like any other place favorites move up in rank. If your not a favorite and have rank others will make your work life very difficult to say the least...
Instructor (Former Employee) – Morganfield, KY – April 8, 2017
The Morganfield Kentucky Job Corps is a JOKE ! HR is ran by people who h ave no idea what their doing at all and are only out to protect themselves. I watched students get away with EVERYTHING and staff was never empowered to enforce rules. Students run the place entirely, the upper staff are scared to death to do ANYTHING to support their co workers. The more students there on center the more MONEY they get so they try to ship in the kids by the BUS LOADS if possible. The place top to bottom is a joke due to upper management being a mindless wandering clueless tool !
NA (Current Employee) – Chaparral, NM – March 14, 2017
The company's upper management only cares for their bonuses. The employees are the least of their priorities. Benefits are horrible, salaries are way below the market. Favoritism for certain employees exceed the understanding capacity of the majority of the employees. The mojo of the company, BIONIC, " believe it or not I care" is inexistent. Employees have spend the last six years with no pay increases.
MTC is a great company to work for if you're just starting out in the job market.
Food Service Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 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.
MTC does not mind you Taking of to take care of family issues.
Insurance is kind of expensive. Pay is not that great.
love the co-workers but administration is not great
Horticulture Aide (Former Employee) – Quincy, IL – January 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.
Corrections Supervisor (Former Employee) – Walnut Grove, MS – December 28, 2016
Good company that have prison facilities world wide. I learned how to deal with all types of people and their behaviors, to include the staff and inmates. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home after my shift with no injuries tostaff or the inmates.
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.
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Meehan, MS – December 7, 2016
There is always room for growth with this employer. They can bring out the best potential out of you if you're willing to learn and apply yourself. The training there is very good at covering all guidelines before throwing you into the field.
Hiring process is thorough and careful to explain paperwork, Promotions and Opportunities are always offered
Healthcare insurance is available, but isnt the best.
Medical Staff (Former Employee) – EMCF Meridian MS – December 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.
CO (Current Employee) – Marion ohio – November 30, 2016
This place is terrible all the way around. They treat you like an inmate but yet will side over an inmate before you as a CO. They lie to force you into overtime while those that have worked less go home
Career Advisor (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – August 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.
RN (Former Employee) – Nowhere, OK – July 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.
Management, employees with seniority, low pay, high turnover, bullies.
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.
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Riverton, WY – July 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.
Mid level manager Wind River Job Corps (Former Employee) – Riverton, WY – May 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.
Students, co workers, salary
Management, ambiguous rules amd expectations, double standards, lack of trust
Worst administration I have ever worked for in my life. Horrible communication no integrity or morals, although that is what they insist on and stress through orientation.
The company supposedly reflects the acronym BIONIC (believe it or not I care)...I don't believe it. The office staff talked to and about the offenders like they were less than nothing... Not a caring word did I hear. The program director was never available when I needed guidance or had a grienence to discuss. She communicated through text message on occasion with neglegable response to my concerns.
There was a complete disregard for integrity and support in ensuring offenders get to class. For the first couple weeks offenders were asked to sign rosters from previous weeks so MTC would get paid even though the offenderd didn't show up for class. The offenders training was second to getting paid and 'fulfilling the contract'.
The work environment was environmentally unsafe, mold on the walls, sewage overflowed and flooded the entire building. The cleanup consisted of pushing the sewage out into the parking lot and mold was painted over...STAY AWAY!!
Working with marginalized citizens to help them overcome bad choices
Everything else... Poor management all they wa y up to regional admin, poor or lack of communications skills, it's all about the contract, not the employees and offenders...lack of integrity filling out reports
The other officers and the inmates were not a problem... The ranking officers talk/treat you like you're an inmate, force you to stay over and play favorites. This place wouldn't have such a high turnover rate if the ranking officers would learn that we are all on the same team.
