Overall, this is a challenging place to work just due to the atmosphere of the institution.
Trades Manager/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Torrington, WYNovember 12, 2012
Typical day is 10 to 11 hours, starting with preparation for the morning meeting with the trades specialists about specific jobs, safety and scheduling. Work can be strenuous at times due to the small staff of Maintenance personnel (15) and the demands of a correctional facility. We receive anywhere from 60 to 30 work requests per day, form hanging pictures to removing sand between the security fences, installing new security cameras, maintaining kitchen equipment and boilers. Management is demanding but supportive for the most part. Co-workers are a highly trained staff and accomplish many tasks within a minimal period of time. They are easy to communicate with and are dedicated. Probably the hardest part of the job is making every body happy at the same time. But we prioritize by life/safety/security issues to the frivolous things. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the dedicated, motivated and intelligent individuals that are my co-workers.
Pros
training, paid vacation and holidays that i can spend with family and the people i get to work with.
Cons
no pay raise for the past three years and we live so far from family.

Probation & Parole Agent (Former Employee) –  State of WyomingFebruary 4, 2018
Excellent benefits, but very few opportunities for advancement. It is a government agency, so employee feedback is requested, however there may be no option to implement the suggestions.
