Student/Worker (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – April 6, 2018
A typical day a job corp would consist of going to training class to learn a different subject in Facilities Maintenance. After a detailed description of the subject we would then go to hands on training to learn what we were taught for the day or week. Workplace culture was fine other than when u had certain people ruing the workplace environment. I learned a lot and concrete and masonry while also learning plumbing and electricity. I even had the pleasure of running conduit through a small house that we built. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was that i got to experience what it would feel like to be an real constrution worker. I was able to lay foundation and jackhammer away old foundation.
Stressful placement. Hard work but not worth the effort

If you go to. Jobcorps be prepared to get paid little and work a lot for it. If you have a phone for contact reasons expect not bwobg able to afford it. Expect a horrible pay especially working in culinary. As you'll work longer hours and a day extra. No benefits. No advancing in the field while there unless cooking. Then you become a chef. Housing is given and food.

Construction Worker (Former Employee) – Chadron, NE – March 29, 2018
The job corps inviroment was competitive yet goal reaching. Many people had tried for the same job yet I was lucky enough to get it. There were dorms on campus which made getting to work very easy. In all job corps was a lifetime opportunity.
Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) – North Grafton, MA – March 20, 2018
The Job Corps I worked for was run by Adams and Associates a company that pays poorly, has lousy health benefits (they cut spousal coverage while I was there)and only cares about their bottom line. I met some really nice people who worked hard, were under paid and under appreciated. They left as soon as they could find another job and so did I. I lasted almost two years. It's a shame because the program is really important to underprivileaged young people and it's great when you see a young person with little hope get turned around and have goals in life. If only the staff was treated with respect!

Here at the Jacksonville JobCorps the have helped me in many ways. In my time at the JobCorps I was able to rise through the ranks and become the Forman. I started out as the tool stwert and later recived the promotion of Safty mashal before finnaly becomeing the Forman.
It's a good place to work but the hours are broken into shifts. There is little to no compromise with the shift as you would have to decide to work nights or afternoons. no in-betweens. there is plenty of opportunity for overtime and the PTO benefits are the best part of the job.

This was a school not a job it was really good of helping you be cut on your feet to work in the world and yes if you're 16 to 25 I suggest you get this if you do not know what you do with your life yet
Clinical Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – March 7, 2018
Job corps is a program that provides opportunity and a second chance in life to continue your education along with leaving with certifications in the multiple of trades they provided. Some were more promising then other and most didn't go anywhere at all.
a program to help people going down the wrong track, and to keep a lot off the streets
International masonry insitute (Former Employee) – Yachats, OR – March 6, 2018
job corp is a place that is pretty much like normal work life you wake up to what you have to do. Then you get ready for work eat and prepare. Then comes the start of the day the student must go to their assigned areas which is commonly trade and school. But through out the workday there is two 15 minutes breaks and then a 45 minute lunch. The culture there is mix its dramatic and calm. The hardest part while i worked there was that i was an outcast that nobody really knew except a few that took there time to know me. The part that i really enjoyed was my project and how they turned out.
three free meals a day two 15 minutes breaks during the work day counselors to talk to
We were not allowed of the campus unless sighed out by an guarding, and nobody took there time to ask how are you doing today
