Love the job, not the company
Nurse (Former Employee) – NC – September 7, 2018
Horrible upper management that is too disconnected with local employees. Numerous lies about shifts, schedules, hours, coworkers and training. No reviews or raises available to part time or full time staff. High turnover of PRN and part time employees. No one seems to know what is going on within the company. Very little training before being sent to shifts alone.
Great experience working with jail staff and employees of facilities in general. Correctional background or knowledge of would be very beneficial. Always felt safe and protected from dangerous criminals. Never a dull moment, fast paced.
Hardest part of the job was long (2-3+ daily) hours standing and preparing daily med pass and updating MARS with outdated pharmacy/EMAR. Short staffing and no coverage for vacation or sick time.
Must be self directed and have great time management skills, able to communicate with general public and/or criminals and able to work alone for long hours. Self defense classes would be helpful as most days are spent around and in jail cells, inmates and open pod(s).
Flexibility in daily work schedule, job experience-culture
Benefits, management/admin, short staffing, no room for advancement
