BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (WTVF) — CoreCivic has announced a new commitment to hiring at all 73 of its active U.S. locations, including eight in Tennessee.
The private prison operator is hiring for multiple positions, including correctional officers, counselors, teachers and nurses, as well as maintenance, food service and administrative positions.
In addition to the hiring of new employees, current frontline employees of CoreCivic will receive a $500 'hero bonus' in appreciation of their service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"This pandemic is creating unprecedented challenges for businesses and industries," said CoreCivic President and CEO Damon Hininger. "But I believe it can also be an opportunity for organizations to support current employees and help those who may be looking for a new career following a job loss."
