A stable place to work but with its challenges too.

Stable job, 40 hour work weeks with good benefits but challenging to work with offenders with varying ranges of mental health issues. Staff can also be a challenge with those who wish to work and many who don't. Different unions cause major separations between Administrative, Security and Management branches which has led to some serious harassment problems and at least 80 staff members off with PTSD between offender and staff interactions. Management has an entirely different agenda that conflicts with safety due to budgetary concerns. The less money they use the better reviews they get from the brass but the less staff have to work with to keep offenders busy and staff safe. The culture can be quite poisonous if the wrong managers are in charge and peaceful if the right ones are in place.

Pros

Stable, Varying Shifts, Good benefits

Cons

Harassment, Dangerous
