Leadership, Growth and Development
Program Director- Reentry Pre-Release Program (Former Employee), Powhatan, VASeptember 26, 2014
Pros: great people to work with, great safe environment, opportunities for growth
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at this agency would be very productive, detail-oriented and full of opportunities to learn something different. I have learned that teamwork is what makes the workplace more conducive to everyone and stepping outside of your confort zone will open up more opportunities for you. The management as this establishment were professional and – more... beleived in their staff. The co-workers were professional, responsible and did their jobs and found time to laugh throughout the course of the day. The hardest part of the job was seeing good people leave for PROMOTIONS because you enjoyed working with them and they left a lasting mark on your life. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home and not being stressed at the end of the day. – less

Hot hot hot (Summer and Winter)
staff (Former Employee), vaJune 20, 2014
Pros: busy in spurts mostly. not continuous labor.
Cons: can't bring in h2o
Leave your personal items in the car. Can't bring food, snacks, or even an unopened bottle of water in. Making their money from snack machines riddled around the campus. Hard to get relief for break. Forget teamwork here. Staff is super catty. Like being back in JR High on a daily. Clientele is rarely a problem, staff is always drama filled.

Management could be a whole lot better. No overtime given. Hardest part is dealing with multiple personalities and attitudes from inmates. Meals that are served are unpleasant.

Correctional Officer II (Former Employee), State Farm, VAAugust 12, 2013
Pros: benifits, free lunch, team work, special events
Cons: short staffed
A typical day at Powhatan was filled with exciment, team work and control of offenders. The officers were treated as officers and offenders as they were. When there was an gaol to reach the officers on staff would all pull together to get the job/task at hand completed because the main goal was to go home as we came in all together.

Very stressful but rewarding work environment
Corrections Officer (Current Employee), Powhatan, VAMarch 30, 2013
Pros: health benefits and days off
Cons: short breaks, dealing with offenders
The first thing I do when I get to work is conduct a security round in the cell block to make sure there isnt any contraband around eg: cell phones, tobbacco or weapons. I am in direct contact with the offenders for the whole 12 hr shift. Ive learned to have alot of patience not only at work but in life. My co-workers are pretty good some are better – more... than others same with supervisors. The hardest part of my job is to be around offenders for 12hrs everyday and dealing with their attitudes. The best part of my job is that I get great benefits and Im off every 5 days. – less
