      Pros

      Decent training in general EXCEPT self-defense

      Cons

      Company only cares about the bottom dollar & not the employee. Needs to FULLY train PPCT & weapons retention to ALL employees. Too much mandated overtime. People have families but CCA doesn't care.

      Pros

      Shift rotation. Experience. Added skill through training.

      Cons

      Lack of structure. They do not do a sufficient screening and up keep on their employees. 4/5 employees are corrupt and bringing in contraband. The inmates are treated like animals.
