    I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay Super easy work Variety in posts Good experience for other opportunities More days off

    Cons

    Mandated overtime (overtime pay included though) Drafting (16+) hour shift Little to no support from superiors Few to no breaks (20 min. break once a week) Negative environment Not mentally stimulating

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better. The turnover rate is justifiably high, as poor treatment outweighs good pay. Most people are seeking other employment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Corrections Corporation of America (Bastrop, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Poor credit? Don't waste your time! I applied online. Had an over the phone interview AND an in person interview. Waited and waited only to receive a "thanks, but no thanks email" with no further explanation as to why I was not chosen. Same thing at another facility, except, this time, they called back before the in person interview and said that my CREDIT SCORE was not good enough to come in for the in person interview. What in the world? If I have a job I could pay all of my BILLS ON TIME!

    Interview Questions

    • Doesn't matter. They only care about your credit score apparently. I have a 4 year degree.   Answer Question
