Heartless
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Weatherford, TXJuly 10, 2019
The inmates were not the issue. Staff is too young, serious God complex, with a horrible attitude toward inmates. Inmates with serious medical/psyc issues getting medical to care, is almost impossible. Heartless and dried up management. One nurse was just rude and disrespectful,I understand its a jail, but the staff treats them as if not even human, more like a heard of animals. Young kids, no training, and bad attitudes.

A great group of people that are very supportive.
Classification Booking CPL Officer (Current Employee) –  Olla, LAJuly 5, 2019
You have your good and bad in everything. The good qualities out number the bad by far. I really love my job.
The job can get busy at times but it makes your day challenging.
The staff and co-workers are friendly and enjoyable to work with.
It is a safe environment as well.

Mid grade employer
JAIL RN (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXJuly 3, 2019
Typical day was met with disorganization and fear of personal security. Pay competitive for profession but not competive when adding in for personal risk.
Pros
Pay, many locations to choose from
Cons
Organizational structure not clear

Very understaffed and unqualified leadership
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Weatherford, TXJune 22, 2019
The leadership is questionable at best. Highly understaffed and the power trip the officers get from blowing off dangerous inmates makes it terrible. Inmates do in fact run that jail, because everyone there is afraid of confrontation. Terrible pay and highly overworked. No social life at all.

Evening Charge Nurse (Former Employee) –  Texarkana, TXJune 18, 2019
Lazy CO's and unruly inmates. Tax dollars wasted on pedophiles and rapest. CO's are just as crooked as the inmates. Trust no one. If you don't want to see your tax dollars going to health care for convicted criminals then turn away now.

Research before you apply or accept!
Corrections Officer (Former Employee) –  Parker County, TXJune 13, 2019
Research company!!! There is no adequate training until you go to jail school. The FTO can’t even spell. The supervisors don’t have a lick of supervisor training. Micro-managed by the asst. warden behind the scenes of course. No one to discuss or report issues to without rumors. Confidentiality is 0 to none! You are a body only. Forget time off it doesn’t happen. They tell you that the schedule is done a year in advance but it’s changed almost daily.
Pros
None
Cons
No adequate training and management has no supervision training whatsoever! Rules change daily.

Good place to use as a stepping stone into law enforcement/ corrections
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth City JailJune 12, 2019
Good people but poor management. Most of the officers are not trained some have no certification to work a Jail making it difficult to learn; too many liability concerns that may lead to future issues. Officers get training for a few weeks with a trainer or another worker and then you are thrown on a shift with a person who doesn't know their job and have just as much experience as you. The Lieutenants and Sergeants micromanage and have a nasty attitudes. No leaders and some have no correctional experience. The shifts can't keep a ranking officer or officers.The facility does not have the proper equipment to complete work task properly; cramped work spaces. Some positive aspects you get to work with some good people some Sergeants are good and have good work ethics, the schedule is great with every other weekend off; good experience for those who are interested in starting a career as a correction officer/ police officer to build communication skills or people skills and learn some lawful policies. If you worked in corrections before it's not to bad but if you are new and just starting out it can be very stressful.

Very poor management and very stressful environment
Corrections Officer/Transportation Team (Former Employee) –  Joshua, TXJune 11, 2019
Working for this company is like starting a shift you will never finish.... i would work 14 hours go home only to be called in 2 hours later to cover a different departments 12 hour shift.
Uniforms are ugly and old
Pay raises are non existent
Inmates run this jail
Weapons are old and always malfunction
Its one of those jobs where it doesn’t matter how much experience and knowledge you have you cant get ahead unless you know someone.

Great For Single People
Correctional Officer (Current Employee) –  Cleburne, TXMay 20, 2019
Not Ideal for anyone who is a single parent. DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE, you work 12-17 hours and sometimes you get relief, sometimes you don't.

IF you are single and have no life, Please Apply this job is Perfect for you. You will never leave because you are there 98% of the time.

IF you have a family and value family time, or are a single parent this job is NOT for you. You may only see your family or child 1 maybe 2 times a month if you're lucky.

Hope this Helps. Good Luck!

Not Recommended
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Texarkana, TXApril 8, 2019
My shift Lt/Sgt we’re both amazing and understanding people, but the upper administration(Wardens/Corporate) forced them to make employees stay over constantly, even if the relief shift had more officers than the shift you just got through working.

Overall it was a good foot in the door and introduction to corrections, but the company makes money off of not paying you what they’re contracted by the counties to pay you, which is terrible.
Pros
Foot in the door
Cons
Terrible administration, very limited work/life balance.

Worst place ever
Corrections Officer (Former Employee) –  Fannin County, TXMarch 21, 2019
Fannin County Jail in Bonham, Texas was the worst place ever to work at. Poor management! Incompetent managers! Managers that doesn’t know dung from shiolah! Lazy supervisors! Most discriminating place ever! Most stressful place ever! They run the good officers off. This place is a failure, they can’t keep employees, they can’t stay in compliance.

Fannin County Jail Bonham Texas
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Fannin County, TXMarch 21, 2019
Worst place ever to work at. Poor management. Highest turnover rate. Most discriminating place ever. The inmates run that jail not the officers. The inmates are always right and the officers are always wrong. They overlook good officers for promoting and promote young or lazy officers. The supervisors are incompetent and lazy!

Chief of Security (Current Employee) –  Waco, TXMarch 11, 2019
Jack Harwell Detention Center is a great place to work with competitive salaries and a family atmosphere. The job is not physically demanding but can be mentally challenging. The most enjoyable aspect of the job is the people you meet along the way. The management is top notch and the owners/CEO are Christian based.

Contact Representative (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXFebruary 24, 2019
This at first was a great place to work. Than you get out of training and everything you were taught doesn't really apply. you learn more on OJT (on job training) than you did in the classroom. What they didn't tell you was you had more problems with other officers than you did with inmates.
