Maxium security facility of juvenile delinquents
Youth Specialist (Current Employee), Highland Park, ILMarch 20, 2014
A typical day of work consist of entering on a pod while debriefing with the previous shift on the events of the day. Some of the things i have learned about delinquents is that most have previous offenses as well as being emotionally and physical abuse. Most of the management is controlled by family and have been in management position for some time. Most of the co workers are new to the field so – more... they spend a great deal of time asking for advise which in most cases i am able to provide. The hardest part of the job is working with people that are not team oriented, team work is very important in this field. The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to help troubled youth reach their goals, regain self esteem, and being able to teach them everyday life skills to help them through everyday society upon their release from maximum security. – less

Horrible company
Juvenile Correctional Officer (Former Employee), Highland Park, MISeptember 9, 2013
Pros: my coworkers were great to work with and the overtime was always available.
Cons: benefits were horrible very high deductible, did not receive a raise in 4 years, management is clueless on how their supervisors abuse their power, no room for advancement at all.
Working for this company was an eye opening experience. Management will not support or back up their own employees. You have supervisors who abuse their power. We actually had the owner come talk to us when they were doing another pay cut. the first pay cut lasted a year and the second pay cut was coming. One of the employees asked when will we receive a pay raise and the owner said "It will be a cold day in hell before you get a pay raise!" Such a great company.
