    I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time (more than 8 years)


    CCA is a family of professionals! Open to new ideas and promoting within - along with community involvement and outstanding facilities with all the technological advances! Staff in-service and training are top notch! Great place to work.


    Outside of working with inmates that need constant hand holding - I can't think of a "con" that relates directly to CCA!

    Management is great - always!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Corrections Corporation of America in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially I received a phone call from the HR department at the Marion County Jail to schedule an interview. There were several times/days available. I had some difficulty upon entering the facility as I had not been previously informed that purses/bags are not allowed inside nor are cell phones. I was able to take those things back out to my car. After re-entering the facility I was informed that the dress code policy states that anyone entering the building is required to wear sleeves--I happened to be wearing a dress shirt that did not have sleeves. The receptionist allowed me to enter "since I wouldn't be going any farther than the interview room". Some time later I was greeted by the two people who interviewed me. They were very friendly and easy-going. They gave me some details about the position then asked a series of basic interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult/unexpected question was "What is something that only your close friends or family would know about you?"   Answer Question
