    I worked at Florida Department of Juvenile Justice full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training in Tally was OK until I noticed that the JDOs all looked grubby compared to all the other trainees (FHP and JPOs)

    Cons

    A literal waste of time. They like to hire ex-military because we have pensions and can live on the terrible pay EXCEPT ex-military won't put up with being treated like children by an untrained, weak manager. Also what is the point of the detention center? It's not treatment in any sense of the word, and it's not punishment what with the TV, X-Box, books, games and B-Ball. Guards can't even put kids in their room after a bloody fight! They need to re-think this place.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay by about $12K per year and turnover might be under 100%. Yup 100%
