    I have been working at Sentinel Offender Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work environment and very laid back and family friendly.

    Cons

    The pay is below average for all of the work that is required. This job should easily pay above $16.00 an hours or more, but they do not value their employees and they will not pay them what they are worth.

    I worked at Sentinel Offender Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great experience and training in a vast number of office skills including but not limited to: Case Management; Interviewing; Preparing Legal Documents; Cold Calling; Scheduling; Etc.

    Cons

    The office management was horrid. There was a lot of drama and little to no oversight. The office manager played favorites and there was definitely some EO complaints and favoritism going on. The officers who had been there the longest had the easier, more entry level positions and the you will never get caught up on your caseload, yet they expected you to. There is literally upward mobility since it is a small company. And, since they keep getting sued there are no opportunities for raises.
