Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – May 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!
