Manager, Enterprise Architect /Technical SME (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – September 2, 2018
Got to work on pretty much everything. Loved being there every day. Every day was different, but that is precisely what makes it fun to work there. We were part of the project team, and that was a lot of fun working there. Coworkers were very nice to each other!
Cashier/Clerk/Cook (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 1, 2018
A typical day at work would be to come in at 6:30am and set up everything meaning prep all food for the salad bar, brew coffee, stock shelves if needed and count the register. we open at 7 so its a pretty busy morning because most of the employees come in at 7 so we are cooking and making sure customers needs are met. by lunch at 11am we are now having our salad bar available for customers to enjoy we also have to make different soup for each day of the week. by 2pm we are now starting to clean and count up all transactions made for the day.
half off lunch. Christmas bonus
no benifits really but paided vacation and very short breaks
A typical day started with reviewing case files,talking to judges, managing calendars, sending out notes to peers, checking the court room for recording and starting court. I learned how to work with the judges in during court and after each day of court proceedings, notarize and certify court records, and how to keep the legal process moving. The hardest part was memorizing the legal pattern of each judge for their court room standards, the easiest was communicating with external/internal customers
Seasonal Clerk (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – September 13, 2018
Over all good job. I was only a student so i didnt get benifits, but pay was alright raises at a pace and fair amount. The bosses where nice and fair., lots of office involment at holidays like a big family. Job duties ranged from easy at your own pace fieling to facepace deadlnes but always reasonable.
After 13 years I have become too jaded toward the inmates. Coworkers are amazing. Always opportunities to learn and teach. Just no longer feel safe inside the fence. I have spent 13 years being assaulted, threatened and my family threatened.
Executive Office of Immigration Review (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 19, 2018
I was a contractor with the US Department of Justice, so I was not privied to pay raises and evaluation bonuses like the government employees. I think that something that could be improved. I enjoyed the people that I worked with. Immigration Court was an amazing and interesting experience. Helping people in this difficult procedure and world of immigration law was meaningful.
Fun office, very understanding and family cultured environment
as a contractor no paid time off for weather and shut downs
Management is very supportive and makes sure you are successful in your position. All employees work together very well and constantly learn from each other. Annual training is provided. It is a very enjoyable place to work.
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Yazoo City, MS – July 20, 2018
This was a very good job. You are tested before entering if pass the test then you get hired and then you will be tested again when you go off to training. The only thing I don't like is you miss the test by one point you still get sent home with no ob. The management was good. The work environment was good.
Loose your job if your test score are not 70 or above.
Firearms Instructor (Former Employee) – Glynco, GA – September 21, 2018
Excellent benifits, not everyone is cut out for this job. Stressful and dangerous. 3 week academy in glynco Georgia. A lot of training opportunities. You can move all over the US if you want to. Paid moves, good 401 and retirement package.
Various Positions Held (Former Employee) – Otisville, NY 10963 – August 28, 2018
I retired after 26 years of Federal service working in a Federal Prison. You can have a meaningful career with an agency that truly values a diverse workforce. You will find a diverse workforce employed from entry level jobs to senior management positions. Our main focus is to protect public safety by ensuring that federal offenders serve their sentences of imprisonment in facilities that are safe, humane, cost efficient, appropriately secure, and provides reentry programing to ensure their successful return to the community. The employees at federal correctional facilities are "correctional workers first" and perform correctional work regardless of their specific occupation. Our long-standing culture of being a close-knit family sets us apart from other agencies - at the BOP you don't just get to know your co-workers, you make life long friends.
Assigned as a Consultant to the Federal Department of Justice
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Department of Justice – March 10, 2018
I was never a Federal employee at the Department of Justice (DOJ). Over the Years of working for AGS, INC and then later Keane Federal Systems, I had been assigned as a Consultant to many different Federal Agencies on a wide variety of projects. Each DOJ agency and each sub-department had slightly different managers and management styles. It was demanding work that required me to continuously improve my technical skills. It was rewarding work because at that time in my life I was continuously learning. I often fell asleep with my nose in technical books and government regulations.
Keane offered a lot of benefits including educational benefits.
Working at the Mt. Dept of Justice - Gambling Control Division
Financial Analyst/Auditor (Former Employee) – Gambling Control Division - Helena, Mt – March 27, 2018
On a regular basis we were required to work excessive hours to complete an audit on time. The division was very supportive. They allowed flex time and provided any training as needed. It was like a close knit family atmosphere and was a joy to work for.
benefits, flexible schedule, close knit working environment
long hours on a regular basis, no career ladder in my position
Assistant Director for Personnel Security (Former Employee) – Washington City, DC – March 17, 2018
I was a Division Manager, always busy with a staff of 125 employees, Federal and contractors, in DC and MN. Every day presented new challenges requiring creative solutions. Workplace culture was fast-paced but enjoyable. Management was supportive.The hardest part of the job was "There werre not enough hours in the day" for the work at hand.
Very fast pace, stressful, not for family-oriented people.
Supervisory Correctional Officer- Lieutenant (Former Employee) – Jonesville, VA – September 25, 2018
Stressful, however, is enjoyable with the right people to work with. Cutthroat in the promotion area as well as mismanaged government funds. Bureaucratic in nature as well as do not follow their own policy. They change the policy to fit their agenda or the situation, they do not support good ideas, many of the management staff refuse to listen to their lower staff.
Great People to work with
horrible management once past lieutenant, no lunch breaks, 20 hour days.
I was proud of my role at the Department of Justice and praised often.
Paralegal (Former Employee) – Concord, NH – April 19, 2018
There was no hidden agenda ever at the DOJ. We all worked together as a team toward a common and fulfilling goal. The atmosphere was one of a solid working group of individuals who valued each other's ideas and allowed for comment and opinion on a regular basis.
Executive Office of the U.S. Trustees (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 17, 2018
Overall, good place to work. Great Benefits, and Pay! Training is provided on an ongoing basis to keep the employee up to date with the latest technologies. Hardest part of the job could be the commute if your not use to commuting.
It has been a pleasure to serve my country as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer working in the Department of Justice
Emergency Preparedness Outreach Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 17, 2018
During the past 21 years of employment, I have enjoyed my various assignments with the United States Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons. I have worked with all custody and security level inmates from MAX/Custody to COMMUNITY/Custody. Whether working at a level four United States Penitentiary or Federal Prison Camp, the line staff as well as the Executive staff have always been professional. I truly loved and enjoyed it all.
