Very family oriented, sometimes the annual review process can be a bit tedious, the staff is great to work with, most of them have worked there for many many years. They are truly dedicated to their work and strongly believe in their efforts to help people become successful.

I worked with Safer for 8years and it was the best 8 years ever. I have had great and awesome things to happen to me there. Serving the Client was the best and transporting them also. Working with The HR team during the hiring process allowed me to learn interviewing and recruiting skills in excellence. Working hand and hand with my supervisor to come up with creative ways to enhance our clients job/life skills. It was truly a blessing for me working for Safer. It can also be a great place for those starting out, Vet men and women.

Bad Experience
Correctional Resource Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 8, 2015
At this job, they only care about numbers and the money they make off of the inmates that are placed there. You are mandated to work overtime and still must come back six hours later for your regular shift. Upper management are children and love to try and disrespect everyone. Job was a joke. Inmates had better sense than management.
Pros
