    I have been working at Job Corps full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The departments are small, makes you close to your coworkers. It is also a great place to work with at-risk youth.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional and stressful at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees the room to express concerns.

    > Monday 6/9/2014. I thought I was interviewing withHR but
    > was escorted down a hall where two supervisors were. They
    > asked questions from a standard form. I asked about the pay
    > rate and benifits and told they have a good benifit package.
    > Now about the pay the female super said " I don't know what
    > he makes and he don't know what I make" so we are unable to
    > tell you what the pay is. Said expect to hear from us next
    > week. I called next Moday to HR and was told they
    > were still interviewing, I should state here this was for
    > one driver position. I called that Friday and was told they
