Pros: pay/benefits
Cons: schedule/management
Good place to work for pay and benefits. Hard on the family life, everything is based off of seniority. Either start night or grave shift and wont see day shift for close to 5-7 years.

Correctional Officer (Former Employee), Lakeview, ORAugust 21, 2013
Pros: a job, good staff, always something happening to laugh about.
Cons: benefits, eroding health care, eroding pension benefits, lack of pay increases.
I supervised convicted felons in a correctional facility. Although inmates are serving sentenances for convicted crimes, they are still people. We treated inmates with respect and required respect in return. The majority of inmates responded positively to this situation. I learned to hone my communications skills. I learned patience.
I worked great – more... staff who would assist me instantly. I would do the same for them. I observed many different types of personalities and behaviors. This enabled me to better deal with o

Simply a place to work.
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Ontario, ORMarch 22, 2013
Pros: job security pay and bennifits
Cons: bad hours, working in negative environment, always behind the fence
Work in this prison was a challenging experience. Working with offenders is challenging and requires good training to be successful. The facility practices for security were well managed. Safety of the staff was often overlooked. Working with some staff is more challenging than working with the inmates and at time it was difficult to differentiate their – more... behavior from that of the offenders. – less

Very supportive staff
Office Specialist I/Medical Office Assistant (Former Employee), Salem, ORNovember 13, 2012
Cons: inmates can be scary
The work is fast-paced. Working with inmates can be intimidating, but one must be strong enough to handle their behaviors, attitudes and language.

I always felt safe there and never afraid. The facilities' staff members are very supportive and helpful.
