    I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. 3 12s, friendly staff

    Cons

    constant call offs, never enough help. Intaking up to 150 inmates during one night shift with 2 people. All the security hate their job and constantly complain

    Advice to Management

    Hire better security.
