    Pros

    The pay was decent but not worth the risk.

    No team work, Management does not care. Corporate is in another state and visits and makes judgements of people based on a small mistake.

    You are all awful people.

    In the old days, the company used to stand for quality care.

    Pros

    The overtime was good but that's about it.

    Cons

    Their management staff is crappie. They play on each employee to be snitches. They are the worst company ever.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. That's probably why they lost their contract at the jail.

    Pros

    Fair pay
    as much overtime as you want

    Cons

    The management does not care what happens to their employees. Several times I stayed 16-22 hours at my shift because no one else showed up to take my place. Also, paychecks would often be days late. I had to call HR every day for 2 weeks to get my last 2 paychecks.

    Advice to Management

    Do a reality check and work the floors to see exactly what your employees are going through.

    Pros

    If you are Female and just starting out in the Healthcare professions this might be a starting point.

    Cons

    a.) A male who aspires to a career in Mental Health is viewed with suspicion and distrust as are his comments, behaviors and work ethic.
    b.) Staff on site have come to accept and reflect the angry and punitive attitudes of the Jail staff in the name of job security.
    c.) Site staff do not support the delivery of quality Mental Health services. Rather site staff are far more interested in keeping a low profile, managing paper-flow and integrating personal agendas (IE job hunting, apartment-hunting, social events) while on the clock.
    d.) Site staff dissuade MH professionals from delivering appropriate services stating "this is more like an ER". All the same standard methods of assessment, testing and interviewing are not followed in the name of processing speed.

    Advice to Management

    Speaking only for myself, I believe I was duped into accepting a position for which I made it very clear what my motives and goals were. In four weeks I was promised training on 7 different occasions, not the have it begin until the start of my 5th week. Further, while I was told that my skills as a Clinical Counselor would be valued and highly welcomed in fact neither was the case. In our culture the consistency between what one says and what one does earns a special word - "Integrity". It is the "gold standard" for Mental Health service delivery. Based on my personal experience I believe your firm does not reflect the necessary integrity for a person to enjoy a satisfying let alone a rewarding career. I would not recommend employment with your firm to anyone who respects themselves or what they do.

    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned their systems easily, had a wonderful preceptor for lab work, and I got a lot of overtime. The pay was nice also, for me being a fresh grad. I had a great time working with the inmates.

    Cons

    Some Nurses and some practitioners treat and talk to you and the inmates like crap, Administrators belittle you, too much gossip and railroading. Administration has favoritism towards “certain” employees. People will throw you under the bus for something someone else did. Let’s get to the real deal I was hired on w/ the company having 200+ over due labs from the previous medical assistant whom they let go PRN. I was expected to catch up on her work, and do my own. IT TOOK THREE OF US to catch up together. I got terminated for not being able to do 200+ labs on my own basically

    Advice to Management

    Needs new managment that won’t try to get over on their employees, nor throw them under the bus to save their own behinds. Stop the favoritism, hire better nurses who actually care.
