Stressful and not supportive
Juvenile Correctional Officer IV (Former Employee) – Giddings, TX – April 8, 2018
Not only do the youths stress you out but the staff as well. They're not very supportive, make assumptions and talk behind your back. This goes for administration and higher ranking officers as well. Youths also get away with a lot out there, while staff suffer from false allegations. Youths are not held accountable. If you are promoted, dont expect your Dorm Supervisor or JCO VI to help you out, you have to rely on other busy JCO's to help you learn your job. There are also a lot of call ins and other staff have to pick up the shift, and those who called in very rarely are held accountable. It's not worth all the stress you're put through.
