Former Employee - Correctional Officer  in  Chattanooga, TN
Former Employee - Correctional Officer in Chattanooga, TN

Pros

None .If I had a friend I did not want speaking to me ever agin I will Highly recommend Silver dale.

Cons

See title me turning in a notice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit acting like you are smarter than everyone .Management is a bunch of ego maniacs. You could not beg me to go back to work there.
Does management realize why so many former employees have lawsuits ageist the company?

    Where do I start

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Correctional Officer  in  Nashville, TN
    Current Employee - Correctional Officer in Nashville, TN

    Pros

    Can't think of any at this time

    Cons

    Political, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Consider 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.
