The WORST Place/JOB EVER! High Turnover on Students and Staff
Career Counselor (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – August 24, 2014
This is hands down the worst and most traumatic employment experience I've had. It has been alleged that a former manager/supervisor put her hands on a staff member and wasn't immediately terminated. Its that unbelievable. The expectations, workload, and competence of management are all unbelievable. I'm surprised the government still funds this place. Many students have mental health problems and do not have proper care prior to coming or can maintain it, but they still bring in the students only for them to want to leave. High turnover in staff due to poor leadership and high turnover in students because they are over promised and facility under-performed. Credentials and experience are not a firm requirement for staff to advance just memorize the handbook and not know how to implement it or attend a Big 10 university. People have walked off the job or not return after lunch because its horrible. Almost similar to medium security prison. Teacher leave within the first week due to high stress, disorderly students, unsupportive staff, safety concerns, and the list goes on.
leaving the job
poor leadership, horrible management, and questionable reporting

Working in the counseling department was a challenge. The hours were extremely long and the caseload was very high. I had almost 70 plus students. The management is not supportive and very unfair. The supervisor placed barriers amongst the team so that there would not be harmony amongst the counseling team. You have to meet with each student monthly and have a week of on call where you are literally on call 24 hours which causes you not to be able to complete your work assignments. There are many trips to bus stations and other places that hinder your work.

The hardest part of this job is the heat when working but this job can be very enjoyable too. planting can be very relaxing but cutting grass and weeding is a good way for me to let out some energy, for me this is good because I am very energetic.
All Finance Staff are not professional. Especially the Finance Manager she very sloppy, A/P Clerk flirt too much w/Students and Staff, Payroll person can't speak english. These are the ghetto group. Where do you find all these people.
Job Work/Life Balance
I enjoyed meeting new people on the daily basis,worked as a cashier and loved the chicken.
I was a cashier and took down orders.I did not like it when the business was slow then it get boring.I enjoyed the different customers, I like how we did at one point made chicken /fish/gyros/and italian beef sandwiches. I love my co-workers even though we had our moments it turned out for the good.Great teamwork!
laid back, free food, cool co-workers and a crazy boss
was not organized when it came to scheduling the hours, didnt get preferred day shift.
My day at The Cleveland Job Corps Academy consisted of me testing students in the TABE(Test of Adult Basic Education). Preparing them to test and to pre-test for their GED exams. Monitoring the halls and subbing in classes where alsopart of my dailey duties.
