Cut-throat Co-workers and Highly Unappreciated
Correctional Officer, Level 5 (Former Employee) – Huntsville, TX – July 13, 2018
The pay and benefits are great. The correctional officer position as well as some upper administration positions lacks professionalism and do not care about other co-workers or how they talk to each other. I would never recommend this type of verbal abuse on anyone. Sometimes you are required to work longer hours then a normal days shift due to the staff call in rate. In my experience, there is a lot of retaliation from supervisors that range from calling in due to a family emergency, choosing to not come to work sick, not being excepted in the favorable 'Click" which is usually the most complacent of the shift and then picked as the new supervisor position TO choosing to have some integrity and do the right thing even if that means the supervisor gets in trouble for doing the wrong thing. A GOOD supervisor is a dime in a dozen. You most likely will be unappreciated, pushed to the side unless you are called on to help others who didn't pull their own weight, and then written up if you refuse to do it. That about sums it up.
Free Meal, Good Benefits, Decent Pay
1-Short break ( if your lucky), Cut-throat staff, Supervisors will throw you under the bus
