Good place to meet new poeple
Job Corps Trainee (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 11, 2014
Pros: government paid for
Cons: immiture students
Go to class, learn about your trade teachers are great well versed and great knowledge if you are willing to learn. Because of the various ages other students may be a little immature but as easy as it is to get into the wrong crowd its just as easy to mind your own and push through. Great opportunity to learn and network

Working with trainees to better their futures
Residential Advisor (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: loved the students
Cons: wages
The day in the life of Job corps changes each day. Some days were very laid back and some days where very hectic. I would have to sit in on student board meetings and determine if the student could stay in the program or be terminated. There were many fights, drugs and alcohol findings, sexual activities etc.

Good, Bad and Beautiful
AT Solar Instructor (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 24, 2014
-Good opportunity to help communities of under served populations from a wide variety of locations from Puerto Rico to Samoa and the 50 states in between; rural and urban for advanced training.
-The bad is government management by an old bureaucracy that is incompetent, subcontracting the work to for profit companies.
-The beautiful is seeing a motivated – more... student succeed by getting a good start in a career building a future for business and family. – less

fun and productive workplace with rec center
Advance Trainee (Former Employee), San Francisco, CANovember 14, 2013
Pros: free meals, an assortment of people, friendly staff, beatiful scenery and a wide range of activity
Cons: pretty muchnon existent health insurance
a typical workday would start out with roll call and then move on to training in the kitchen, cooking pretty much anything, at the end of the work day we would clean up the kitchen and do the dishes in a three compartment sink. the things we learned were things such as cleaning and setting up a salad bar, working in a cafeteria, fixing meals for a extremely – more... large crowd, and catering for a modest size crowd. management was well balanced.my co-workers were rather interesting because you get to meet people from different parts of the country and the world. the most enjoyable part of my day is sitting at breakfast, launch, dinner, or just hanging around with the friends that I made and talking – less

I didnt enjoy myself
Office Assistant Training (Former Employee), Treasure Island,Sanfrancisco caNovember 6, 2013
Pros: they pay you every two weeks
Cons: you dont get paid much at all.
I didn't feel like they lived up to what is advertise on t.v etc. I came there in 2008 so maybe now they may have a whole new staff and so I can't really speak on them due to me not being there when the new staff took on the center.

Productive work place where you can literally live and learn
Cemnt Mason/Laborer (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 31, 2013
Pros: free breakfast, lunch and dinner
A typical day was to wake up, shower and shave get some breakfast, attend the morning meeting to see what work needs to be done if the work before was already completed the day before and get to work. Management was fine. They taught me how to supervise and manage my fellow employees which i did on a day to day. My co-workers were a bit emotionally – more... unstable and loved to gossip for the most part but i kept that to a bare minimum to finish the tasks at hand, correctly and on time. The hardest part of the job was deciding to take a break. As in when there is a deadline that has to be met and you are under staffed it is absolutely necessary to work with a few breaks as possible. However just to clarify I did allow my team to take breaks when it was absolutely necessary. The most enjoyable part of my job was to see my co-workers and my employees actually enjoying the work that they do. – less

Residential Advisor (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAMay 31, 2013
Pros: beautiful location, good benefits
This Job is not physically hard , but it does challenge you. I am a graduate of the program and found it fulfilling to go back and share what I learned when I attended with the students there now. Everyday is unexpected, you never know what is going to happen next. The girls are lively and keep me on my toes.
