Good place to gain work experience in chosen field
Landscaper/Student (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – March 23, 2015
I were told to be out of the dorms by 7:15AM dressed and ready for work. They provided meals and shelter. One week, we would be in trade, the next, high school. The instuctors in High School were understanding, no matter what education level you were at, and the trade instuctor was even better, always trying to be up to date in the field.
The hardest part of the job was my coworkers attitudes. I will say that in my class, there was only 3 or 4 people (myself included) who actually acted professional and actually worked. While I was trying to work, my fellow co-workers just blared music from mini speakers and played around.
Job Corps is a place that can be very helpful if you don't get caught up in the drama and focus on finding a job.
3 meals a day, shelter, bed, clothing, bi-weekly personal allowance
allowance was too small, higher number of bad co-workers vs. good ones
