    I worked at Job Corps full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A great opportunity to work with some disadvantaged youth from across New England and the Virgin Islands.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Constant turn over of staff. Whenever a company comes in and the contract changed, we lost about 1/3rd of the staff. Things were always on edge to produce results that could be measured, without many of the management staff caring about real outcomes in the quality of life of students.
