Security Guard (practicum) (Former Employee), Glenmont, NY – September 9, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: health insurance
A typical day at work is learning and working hard. I have learned work place values. There is no hardest part of the job its all about working at your maximum best. The most enjoyable is working is the field of work I prefer.
Counselor (Former Employee), Glenmont, NY – June 24, 2013
Cons: everything else - lousy pay for the work.
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.
Social Worker (Former Employee), Glenmont, NY – April 3, 2013
Pros: the population served is diverse, challenging and stimulating.
Cons: the administration served is the opposite of all that!
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 – more... of training for social workers and counselors. – less
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 – more... 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. – less
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 – more... personal experience. – less
