Work there for almost two years. Never had any meeting with treatment staff. As new policy and procedures came out there was little training provided which lead to people making mistakes and then people cleaning up their mistakes. They never hold staff accountable for their actions. Flexible time off was a plus
Pros
Flexible time off
Cons
No team work

Not everyone is built for this type of work
Correctional Sergeant (Former Employee) –  Chesapeake, VADecember 31, 2015
It is want you make it. The pay is okay but for the type of different attitudes and situations that can occur the pay sucks. You work at least 6 months out of the year. Which isn't bad but the it's very stressful on not only yourself but your family. The benefits are good for a state job. There's room for advancement especially if your in the clique, or a yes man. The only way to truly move up fast is being able to travel and work at other institutions. Supervisors you need to watch your back because they soon for where they came from. I can't respect a supervisor that don't know what they're doing, or got the position because he's in the clique and last that's not willing to get in the trenches with his or her staff.
Pros
Free lunch, plenty of overtime, formed long lasting bonds
Cons
Not allowed to leave for break, during in service you have to wear your uniform, pay sucks for the amount of time you are away from your family

I work with offenders returning to society and help them to learn how to lead a productive life. I have learned how to deal with people from every type of life. The management is not bad there are prose and con everywhere a person works.
