While teaching math you are able to help students decide their careers and good moral habits, Classroom management consistency is a problem. Pleasing all management because objectives change for each department.
Work Based Learning Coordinator (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – November 28, 2016
Fraudulent= The students were just numbers to management and many students had got help on gaining their high school diploma. Then there were students allowed to break rules such as; ditch the training day but still collect their pay and the center gained credit. While others were under the influence on drugs and the upper management would turn their heads just to score a number. I could go on....
Misrepresented= The students do not get given a fair chance. Some staff turn their backs and provoke students to act out in a negative manner and then the student is forced back in to the life they left. Racism and discrimination is big there as well.
I gained a lot of experience while attending Albuquerque Job Corps. I learned about time management, work place relations, wearing the proper work attire required for the job, job related skills, I've learned the basic welding fundamentals. I took OSHA 10, NSC First aid, NSC CPR, and National Center Construction Education and Research (NCCER).
I enjoyed working at Albuquerque Job Corps. The management and co-workers were great. I miss my friends there, but at APS I'm receiving a pension for retirement, and am making new friends. I learned light plumbing, drywall, electrical, and carpentry work.
Case Management Clerk (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – April 19, 2015
Working with Albuquerque Job Corps there were a lot of students that needed guidance which I felt they never really received. They were just a number. Employees made almost nothing in salary, it was a very tough environment to work in.

most enjoyed leaving at the end of the day. management always angry. what I learned, quite a bit. co-workers helped out a lot. hardest part of the job, understanding the hire ups, they never say what they mean
I worked everyday at a self-fast pace area. I got plenty of work done on my own. I was self motivated and gathered more interpersonal skills with team mates. I got hands on training with secretarial work. I greatly enjoyed the environment.
Career Instructor (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – January 7, 2014
Arrive and be in classroom before 7:45 a.m.; teach, tutor, and test students, with an opportunity myself to learn a myriad of cultures and help a lot of developing minds. Management is young and developing as well; coworkers pull together for the benefit of the students. The hardest parts of the job are long hours and relatively low salary as compared to other teaching positions, and with few benefits:year round with relatively little time off, we work through holidays, summers, with 10 hours accumulative leave time per month to be used for sick/vacation/annual leave. The most enjoyable part of the position is the pride you see in the faces of those completing their HS and/or GED and those graduating from trade school and getting their first real job.
