Great place if looking for a career in criminal justice.
Correctional Officer, CO4 (Former Employee) – Palestine, TX – July 4, 2014
Typical day includes offender count, managed the ingress and egress of offenders to and from assigned work programs, meals and leisure activities, and assisted with offender transports and offender restraints. This is a very unique environment, where you must earn the trust of your fellow co-workers. Moral integrity is a must. You must be able to work as a team, able to walk/stand for full shift. The hardest part of this job is not being manipulated by the offenders (because they will try). The best part is that some of the offenders really want to change. You can be a role model as to how to live right.
Good Supervisors, continual training
No air-conditioning, standing long hours, short breaks
