Terrible Work Place at Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIFebruary 17, 2019
Poor management, the employees are old, miserable, and bitter. Forced Overtime at the door. You think you're going home when you are not, they'll literally force you to work overtime once you hit the door. The inmates, especially the male inmates will cat call you, disrespect you, etc. Overall, you need to have thick skin and patience for the job. No lie. The only pros are the generous paid time off and i guess the opportunity to work as much as you want. If you want a life, don't work here. If you're a loner and want to pick on people, this is the job for you!

Great people working here.
Correctional Sergeant (Former Employee) –  Oregon, WIJune 26, 2019
I worked here for 11 years. Thedainderstaffing issues were what finally drove me away. I was missing too much family time, and the money wasn't worth it anymore. The staff there s great though, all the way from the guards to the deputy warden.
