We are all family
Instructor (Current Employee), Cherokee, NCDecember 25, 2012
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: high stress job
Home Builders is the best company I have ever worked for. Although the job, working with inner city youth is highly stressful, it is very rewarding. The students are the best part of the job and can also be the hardest part. It is never a dull moment. I have had many opportunities for higher education. I was a carpenter became a teacher.

Productive and great workplace.
Landscaping (Former Employee), Woodstock, MDJuly 2, 2012
Pros: hard working landscaping student.
Cons: two 15 minutes breaks. one in the morning and afternoon.
Work would start at 8:30pm with Monday Morning Safety Meeting with one of the Landscaping Students reading out of the Safety Book. Then it is after the Safety Meeting all the Landscaping Students would get their work orders from our teacher then get to work. What we as the Landscaping students is that we have to maintain the centers grounds. We all – more... do mange the work and other people when it is time to clean the tools that are used. The hardest part of the groundsmaintance is keeping the grass cut and the bushes even. The most enjoyable part of the job as a Landscaping student is the two breaks we get. – less

A sub contractor training for The Department of Labor
Facilities Maintenence Electrical Instructor (Former Employee), South Bronx NY./Chicopee, MAMarch 25, 2012
Pros: good pay and benifits package
Cons: stress mushroom type people, constantly under fire stress 24/7
Awesome job if your a mushroom not for the go getter inspiring type.I have never seen so many dazed,confused and not certain what will be expected in the next half hour people in a group anywhere in my life.Burned out staff just there to be there mentally beyond stressed out. Most of your co workers could not get a job in the field they teach back stab, – more... throw you under the bus to make themselves justified in a second. JOB CORPS CENTERS are managed by very manipulative EXTREMELY greedy large corporations for profit plain and simple.Any sub contractor hired to train vocational skills to students for THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR is squeezed of every copper penny they can justify.An instructor is not even a pawn in their manipulative game of profiting play along or we can and will make your life miserable and that they did.Sub contracted trainers like HBI have to play by their guidelines whatever they are or they are out. – less
