Overall compensation for your work

You work 84 hours every two weeks, but only get paid for 80. The other 4 hours used to go into comp time, but now it doesn't. The sheriff claimed that it all works out in the end, but not for the employee, only the county.

The Van Zandt County Sheriff's Department is a sorry place to work. You work 84 hours every two weeks and only get paid for 80 hours. The other 4 hours used to go into comp time, but then it just got taken away altogether. The sheriff claimed that it all works out in the end. It doesn't for the employee, only the county.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to get someone to run the jail that is a more caring and compassionate person. Also they need to start paying time and a half for that 4 hours they are stealing from the employees. Other jails in the area pay that 4 hours at time and a half.

What I like about the company

It was close to home, but other than that, nothing.

What I dislike about the company

It's not a good place to work. They treat the employees in the jail like crap. The person over the jail is not a good person and he plays favorites, which isn't fair. You work 84 hours every two weeks, but only get paid for 80 hours. The other 4 hours used to go into comp time, but now it's just unpaid work. The sheriff claims that it all works out, but not for the employee. It only benefits the sheriff's department.
