    Insurance benefits, paid time off, opportunity to promote, some voluntary travel (working at other facilities). If facilities are closed many other facilities offer positions to those who otherwise would be laid off. CCA spares no expense to satisfy the contract or issues of safety.


    Some contracts are not a stable as others. The pay varies drastically by contract. Some employees with negative attitudes don't see all the opportunity that is within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Close the gap between administrators and entry staff. Promote higher education and consider a tuition reimbursement program. Retain those employees who want to better themselves and the company.

    Corrections Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Corrections Corporation of America (San Diego, CA).


    So with any privatized contract company its all about a clean record and credit report that is in good standing. After those two major obstacles then it is about relevant military or prior law enforcement experience. After working here I always thought they should do some sort of character test to implement in this process as well.
