Great job for someone with little family life
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Green Bay, WIMay 14, 2019
I loved my job as a correctional officer! But the hours heavily conflicted with my home life! I was working on average 72 hours a week with a home life and a small child. You can make money very easily and work your way up the ranks!
Pros
Lots of overtime
Cons
Long hours, demeaning inmates, lots of overtime

stressful job
Correctional Sergeant (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WIApril 16, 2018
I never know when or if I will get to go home. There is lots of forced overtime. Management only cares about inmates. I am not able to have a normal home life due to overtime.

Food Service Leader (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WIJuly 31, 2013
A typical day of work consisit of producing line assignment sheets for serving food. We serve 1100 inmates throughout the institution within a two hour time span. My superior provides us with the proper traing and tools to make our work day run as smoothly as possible. I have three co-workers to work with everyday. Each one of us is a specific chef for the shift, I am the sanitation chef, and we all correspond with one another. The hardest part about the job is consistantly staying busy. The most enjoyable part is that I have the opportunity yo exercise my skills and traing in the food and beverage industry.
Pros
State Employment
Cons
its a prison
