Productive work place
President (Former Employee), McKinney, TXDecember 29, 2013
North Texas Job Corps is a place where you learn to become employable. Not only for the good of others but yourself as well. I had the honor in being President of the campus, speaking for the student body as a whole on the weekly bases. Everything that I did was based on the student body and how to be a voice for them. The hardest part was getting students – more... to work with an idea instead of against it. The most enjoyable part was being a great impact on the students even til this day i get emails and phone calls about how i have helped them in someway. If i could do it again i would. – less

It is hard work day in and day out working non-stop.. but one of the good things that come to light is the knowledge and the work ethic in the kitchen. And you also get to be creative with your food.

Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), McKinney, TXMay 23, 2013
Pros: free food, games, parties
Cons: short breaks, long hours, cant go home till friday
North Texas Job Corps is a government facility. Being a North Txas Job Corps we worked monday-friday from 8:00am-3:00pm. Our job was basically training, preparing us for the real deal outside the gates of job corps. I have learned the basics of a CNA. We had instructors and bosses over those instructors. The people i came here with, my faze mates (class – more... mates) was very encourageing and motivated some completed and some still here. The hardest part of this job was the work base trainnig because, being told how to do something then actually showing them its kind of hard when we at work base. The most enjoyable part about this job will be the residents, some are sweet, funny, angery, sad, depressed, just not up for the day, but i love seeing their faces everyday. – less

President of the school (Former Employee), McKinney, TXMarch 4, 2013
Pros: impacting student everyday life
A typical day as President at North Texas Job Corps consist of; me going to meeting at least twice a day meeting with new students who came in the program. I was to conduct any and every meeting I attended. My job was to make sure my team members knew what the staff need form us, I also had to make sure that the student body's voices where heard at – more... all times. The hardest part about the job was making sure I knew how to separate the fact that I was a student, but also played part of a staff. There were times to inforce a rule and stand by staff and then fight for the rights of the student at North Texas. The most enjoyable part of my job was how I made such an impact on so many peoples lives, being able to have someone say that "If it wasn't for me they wouldn't be this far". It was a true honor. I dealt with students of different ethnics and to have them say that I cared for them made me feel as though I accomplished alot. Now what I learned from my whole experience is that you never let anyone not even yourself under estimate your intelligence. You have to believe that you can accomplish things when your whole support system bails on you.

Material Handler Trainee (Former Employee), McKinney, TXJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: facilitates control.
Cons: no flexibility.
A day at North Texas Job Corps is like being in a Zoo full of Simple minded adults / staff and young minded adults /students, it can be nerve racking. You learn to control your temper and to maintain a positive attitude. Its very Unorganized and thats the annoying part about Job Corps. What i loved about Job Corps is it gave me a chance to have a second – more... chance, it transformed me into a Educated women that believes. I am strong and confident that I will and can make it anywhere. I loved current staff on center. The hardest part was the eating habits they feed you three times a day at 6am to 7: 45, 11 until 1: 15 and last meal from 4: 30 to 6pm then a a snack at 8 exsample an apple or orange. My stomach touches my back by midnight and i can hardly sleep, other than that i liked it i wouldn't do it againg. The most enjoyable part of job corp is any free time we can get like weekend because they keep us on our feet. – less
