Good Department
Corrections Officer (Current Employee) –  Manhattan, KSJuly 29, 2018
This is a good department, but is stressful, which comes with this line of work. Have to deal with the usual politics, but for the most part is held to a high standard. Very good benefits and pay! Depending on your position, it’s hard to get time off due to staffing shortages.

Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, KSOctober 20, 2017
If you don't know your head from your behind then you might as well not even try. This job is very hard and on a different level of multitasking. The police department don't have time to keep people that don't learn fast.
Pros
great pay
Cons
no time to learn

Hard work
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, KSJune 5, 2017
I loved being a 911 operator. I don't like the feeling that someone is over your back the entire time watching and waiting for any mistakes that you may end up doing. The people for the most part are great to work for but there are supervisors that are not so great.
Pros
good pay
Cons
hard work

Not a good place to work
Employee (Former Employee) –  RCPDJanuary 4, 2017
Family doesn't matter to them. Expects you to always put the job before your family, even when its FMLA approved. Management doesn't care if coworkers create a hostile work environment for you either.

The only reason I am seeking different employment is due to an upcoming shift change. As a mother I would like to be with my child after school and at night. I currently work 8-4.
