Place to commit adultry
They are not watching the inmates, and are all sleeping with each other. Horrible place for anyone who is married to work overnight, no time for family.

Quite intense , but rewarding being a Detention Officer.
I worked here for 18 months , it is an interesting job. I treated the inmates like the humans they are , some however were the most hardheaded people I had ever met. There is alot of politics in the job , with certain coworkers that will back you up in a fight/argument and others that will turn and walk away ; leaving you alone with a upset inmate/s. Chose your battles carefully , you can get hurt , and the OC spray won't do a thing to some inmates that love pain. However , the atmosphere is unique , the benefits are worth getting your butt kicked and so is the pay.

I enjoyed working here. I came in through a temp agency and I must say I had an opportunity to get hired but I moved to Florida after I got married. Not a bad job at all

Example: Student achievement is the goal
There are some staff that are truly dedicated to helping their students. Student achievements are rewarding to see. Seeing the parents and students sense of appreciation for the time invested in their child.
Pros
Seeing the students achieve their goals
Cons
Poor staff moral

It's what you make it, however there are really nice management leaders. Some departments have access to plenty of overtime, if your wiling to work.
I highly recommend this job to people who have families, are just graduating college, looking for a place to retire, or looking for a career change!!!

Well organized
Great career. Brings financial stability. In my department they work with you with the overtime if you can’t stay. They treat you like a person and not a robot.

Great working experience
Great company loved helping the children and families. I loved teaching the children things that they didn't know. I did lesson plans and home visits so children would become comfortable with me .

I no longer work here due to illnesses and i chose to leave because i felt i wasn't able to do the best job.
Loved my job and I enjoyed helping people. I learned a lot being around my boss and sitting in on cases with the Judge. Even though some times our customers acted out I could usually have them smiling when they left. I think the customer is always right.

Review Summary
Small crews run the park. You work 1 night a week and 4 days per week. Once every 4 weeks you will be responsible for the entire park by yourself. Long hours on weekends.

Slave labor, DONT DO IT!!!
The pay abysmal. They pay you peanut but work you like a COO. I’m miserable and I want out!!!
I got the stink eye when I dared add their sugar to my home- made a coffee.

They treat clients better than the employees.

I’m sick and I still have to go to work because the program manager keeps calling my cellphone into shaming me to stay w/o caring about my health.

They also make you p

Great job, if you're willing to sacrifice some personal time away from work.
Good pay, great benefits, and opportunity to move up, but you have to show you're worth it more than others. Get ready to work 16 hour shifts each time you go in.

Low pay good benefits
Unless someone quits or retires, there are rare opportunities for advancement. There is not much diversity. The scope of the job always changes without warning.

A necessary evil
This job will break you. Not for slackers or people who haven't seen the worst in humanity. You will deal the worst the city has to offer. Drug addicts, murders, gangsters, people with no hope or future reside here. They might take it out on you. But you say you can tough it out, and maybe you can. If you have better options take it.
