    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at DeKalb County Sheriff-Georgia full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Nothing at all to consider coming here.

    Cons

    The worst I've seen in years!! people are leaving in packs. The jail is under staff due to no raises, no incentives, no anything. Trust me, run if you can. You are risking your life working here. Only people that are getting money are higher ranking individuals unless you work overtime.

    Advice to Management

    None they don't consider your opinions in meetings they definitely won't here.

    I have been working at DeKalb County Sheriff-Georgia full-time for more than 2 years

    You'll be able to indulge in a lot of overtime. Four 10-hour days and Three days off. If you can work here, you can work ANYWHERE.

    There is a lack of communication in every aspect. If you need weekends this is not the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    More communication, and empathy/respect towards staff.
