Where do I start

Correctional Officer (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time for more than a year

ProsCan't think of any at this time

ConsPolitical, If your not in the right groups don't expect to get promoted. Over worked! IF you love overtime then you'll fit in because there's tons of mandatory overtime!!! Everyone comes here and several people by the time they've been here 2 or so months leave so we are always short on staff so the Correctional Officers suffer! Correctional officers are stuck working some weeks 5 out of the 7 days. Not Captains, Lieutenants, Correctional Counselors, Pretty much anyone besides Correctional officer!

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider raising the pay, making people besides just Correctional Officers work overtime. There are tons of things that people besides correctional officers can do! Pill call, count, different facility security checks. That will free up Officers and put them back into units.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
