Current Employee - Corrections Officer  in  Dillwyn, VA
Current Employee - Corrections Officer in Dillwyn, VA

Pros

The staff can make this an enjoyable working experience. Training is among the best.

Cons

The pay isn't the best or anywhere near the best. Some of the older employees need to retire along with their way of thinking. It is a true dichotomy there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's time to retire some of the wardens and superintendents.
