Great experience for future career in Criminal Justice. Poor poor management. Would not recommend working here if you’re weak minded, a women after the wrong things, or even a man after the wrong things. The prison system as a whole in TX has a lot of work to do. These raises they keep providing people is just to try to keep them. Look at the turnover rate.
