    I have been working at GEO Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary starting off it better than any state job with that same title, you're more prone to get a raise and they will allow you to grow with the company and you have limitless opportunities to promote and make really good money. It does have a lot of job security because they want people to stay with the company.

    Cons

    They tend to change a lot just to find ways to get more inmates in seats for money. A lot of the time staff is put into dangerous situations, with watching 2 or 3 classrooms at one time alone.

    Advice to Management

    Take more thought about the employee's safety rather than the amount of inmates that can squeeze into a certain space.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GEO Group (Graceville, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Asked me questions to get to know me and if I had knowledge of the company. Would I be ok working overtime and the twelve hour shifts. It was very relaxed and professional. I asked questions and received informative answers. I met with the warden and assistant warden and had a overall postive experience.
