Social Worker (Former Employee) – Glenmont, NY – April 3, 2013
The population that resides there is a great population to work with. The administration is poorly run and operates individually as separate departments rather than unified as an administrative community. This is a for-profit administration and it is vastly different than a non-profit social organization. This conflicts tremendously with the basic foundation of training for social workers and counselors.
the population served is diverse, challenging and stimulating.
the administration served is the opposite of all that!
Security Guard (practicum) (Former Employee) – Glenmont, NY – March 26, 2013
At a typical day at work, I would sign in and out employees working at the center, keep on a steady working paste,making sure to keep the area secured at all times. I learned how to react to dangerous, also working management skills, and learn how to use my observation skills at all times. I was able work with my co workers professionally and socially with good communication. To be honest there wasn't a hardest part of the job, and the most enjoyable part of my job was having great communication with my co workers to get the job done.
Student Security Internship (Former Employee) – Glenmont, NY – October 21, 2014
A typical day at work would include routine perimeter detail, building patrols, and assisting anyone of need. While working for Glenmont Job Corps Academy, I have learned that everyone is not the same and my supervisor encouraged me to speak in a respective tone of voice and not enhance the situation in a negative manor. Management is great and works as a team. All my co-workers worked together as one and always finished a assignment on time. The hardest part of the job was when students would get into altercations with one and another and at the end see the students go home. The most enjoyable part of the job was sitting down with my supervisor and co-workers and effectively layout a strategy to help Glenmont Job Corps Academy be a safer environment.
Administrative Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Glenmont, NY – January 10, 2013
If you go there and do what you have to do and stay out of trouble you'll be fine. The overall experience really wasn't, however when it came to my personal business I really like it to be accurate and on time. I think in that field and providing that type of service to me that is where the many staff at Glenmont Job Corps failed. But that is my own personal experience.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Glenmont, NY – June 24, 2013
The turn over here is outrageous. The left hand has no idea what the right is doing and the HR dept is a joke. They constantly lose funding requiring lay offs. So, if you want a job for an undetermined amount of time in a place that is clueless this is your spot!
Albany pays $40k for the same job they offer $33k for.

Glenmont is a self paced program that aides youth in furthering themselves in the careers of their choice.Jobcorps allows you to choose from a variety of trades with hands-on class work as well as instructors that help guide you along the path towards success.what i most enjoy most about jobcorps is the care of the instructors as well as the staff.A typical day at glenmont is mostly hands-on work and team building that gets you ready for the real world of work.The classes they provide are free and of no charge to the students. At jobcorps i learned that team work is essential in regards to getting a project done especially when the people in which you work with come from differnt backgrounds and different viewpoints than yourself.i think the most difficult part for me at my current stay in job corps is finding a bridge towards gaining commrodery with the individuals who are of a different background than myself.My co-workers have become my family as for i can honestly lean on them for support whenever i feel at my lowest.Hopefully after i leave i will be able to include some if not most of my co-workers as refferences because we all want each other to succeed in the real world.
free meals and transportation, as well as room and board, free recreational trips and most of all free trade classes
Intense at times, sometimes the weather is'nt as friendly as one might want it to be .
