As I answered in the first question, new hires are forced to do mandatory days or get written up. Only special people that work there don't have to work the over time. Need to get rid of a few captains that are lazy and can't keep help on their shift due to their attitude. Panama City fl
If you were in charge, what would you do to make The GEO Group, Inc. a better place to work?
Promote and train leaders within the institutions. Supervisors and mid level managers are selected and promoted based on seniority and popularity instead of demonstrated potential. Effective leadership is severely lacking. This affects staff retention and morale.
New Employee Training is superficial and a "Check the Block" endeavor. OJT is non-existent. Security staff are thrown to the wolves with little to no supervision. Professional development is also non-existent.
Very relaxed, just answer the questions truthfully. If your not experienced in law enforcement, use common sense. If you need help go through the chain of command. You will receive help. Act professional with inmates and your team members and learn all you can. You will have a rewarding career if you want one. Stay positive , because all the long hours pay for you or a family, and that in it self should make you positive .
What would you suggest The GEO Group, Inc. management do to prevent others from leaving?
Hire better management. GEO policies are pretty solid and they make sense but aren't worth anything if the higher ups pick and choose when it's convenient to follow them. Too many games, not enough communication, and not enough respect for the people who work hard for them.
What is The GEO Group, Inc. sick leave policy? How many sick days do you get per year?
Show up to work, don't call in and you will go places. If you like to call in every once in awhile, get real comfortable because you are now unpremotable. More than 6 call offs in 6 months = disciplinary action.
Do all jobs require a Security Clearance through DHS or is it just some? Would back child support prevent employment?
No they don't, only the ones involved with the bureau of prisons
