Buyer, Torrington, wy - August 3, 2016
This "department" had its pros and cons. I believe that the general atmosphere of a correctional facility is unhealthy to begin with. ; You go to work "on your guard" every day due to the fact that you will be around inmates that will constantly try to manipulate you into getting something they want. I do not see a lot of support for one another amongst the security and non-security staff. I believe when an issue is reported WDOC does all it can to squash the issue and not come to a healthy resolution. I believe there is a lot of favoritism among certain staff, and therefore promotions etc. are awarded to the incorrect and undeserving staff member. The benefits are good, and the pay is ok. I believe working long term in this department will have a negative effect on you.
