If you are serious about not losing your license, run.
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) –  Canton, GAAugust 9, 2017
Management is the most unprofessional that I have ever come across in my working career. Select employees are in control and can do whatever they want, even pass off their job to you and its OK with the manager. Lots of back stabbing. Very intimidating and stressful. Don't waste your time thinking that its going to get better, you will be disappointed. If you value your license, run.
Pros
Overtime hours if you are able.
Cons
numerous

Corrections......need I say more?
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) –  Canton, GAJuly 14, 2017
Management is just that....management. There are no favorites only strong workers that management knows they can depend on. If you are PRN your schedule is flexible. If you are full time you have a set schedule. Staffing shortage is common so your are asked to perform your job and more. Due to the environment this is common. Corporate office is out of town and that makes it difficult to communicate. This facility is NCCHC accredited so forms change to meet those requirements. Overall the job itself isn't hard but it does get stressful. Being productive is why you are paid hourly if you enjoy earning your money this is your place. Autonomy is the best thing about being in corrections, if you do your job correctly you are covered regardless. I truely enjoyed working at this facility.

If you like to be respected - don't work for this company
LPN (Former employee) (Former Employee) –  Canton, GAJune 22, 2017
Favoritism is shown by head manager to a select group of people. If you are not a favorite, then you can almost bet that you will be fired. Head management talks about employees to other employees. Very childish behaviors shown by all employees. All employees are over worked with no compensation. Management could care less about what you do to help out, as long as it keeps them from having to work. There is no respect in the workplace. Very easy to lose your nursing license at this job. Paperwork changes constantly and no one is ever trained properly. Do not work for this company.

This company is horrible to work for (on-site and corperate). Favoritism childish behaviors and over worked is shown be management and the corporate office could care less. You are expected to do "whatever corporate wants you to do-legal or not". Corporate office gets on here and writes excellent reviews anout themselves ro try to make the company look better than it really is. It sucks working there!!!!!
