Corrections Officer in Sayre, OK
on September 19, 2022
I was once stuck on a pod for over 30 hours without relief. As a pod officer your chances for promotion are minimal unless you manage to suck up to your higher-ups in command if you're lucky enough to get a rover position on your mandatory overtime days.

Management does not appreciate their staff. Supervisor do not appreciate their staff. When working you will be required to work 16 hours daily. Co workers are not trustworthy nor are they dependable. Time off is difficult

Didn’t pay me for relocating from 4 hours away. Held my first check way beyond what they should have been allowed. HR is very unsupportive of your issues.
Warehouse Worker/Forklift Operator in Eloy, AZ
on September 29, 2022
The work is ok management is pretty fair. The pay for the area is pretty good. Only downside is people not showing up for their shift and people who have already worked their 8 hours having to cover for them.
