Working with youth was great; everything else wasn't
Instructor (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – September 10, 2018
The actual working with students was great, everything else was the drizzling s$%ts. No active management. Workplace bullying is/was rampant. If you don't fit a certain image for a role, you WILL be railroaded out. Watched it happen to two people, then it happen to me. I learned the definition of gas-lighting and work place bullying from this place. If i had handled it properly, and documented I would have got them for millions and would be sitting on a beach somewhere. But I cared about the job too much. Construction program, along with others, are often just facades for grants and the money is then placed anywhere else they can get away with. Watched students who were entirely capable of the completing the program be turn away because of instructors personal taste in people. When TAPs programs struggle and they ask the community for help. It is a problem they create because the community is aware of their practices.
Can get away with a lot, because of horrible top down management
Horrible top down management
