    I worked at Soft-Train full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None and if possible I would like to give zero rating

    Cons

    The WORST company every.Please please please stay away from these guys, they do highway robbery. They try to sell you everything (PROXY for JOB interview/ Online classes / 100% JOB placement and etc) and will even assure that we can provide your money back if you are not satisfied. Its all false information, once you enroll and if you have issues, they stop answering your calls and luckily if you try from different numbers and catch hold of them, they say they just came to office and was out sick or some family emergency and all crap. DONT EVER TRY TO FALL IN THEIR TRAP. they try to attract with all these additional assurances they offer for the job placement. Please DO NOT waste your money. I am fed up calling and trying to follow up with these guys for placement and the additional money I paid for all the services. The ONLINE classes are worst and the trainer never shows up on time and quality is soo poor..Please stay away and save you time with registering somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop messing up with peoples lifes.

    I worked at Soft-Train as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to provide Microsoft Office training in a very specific and targeted environment. Company provides curriculum and training. A wide variety of client sites from city, state, federal and private companies.

    I have been working at Soft-Train part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of freedom to create your own training materials and lot's of opportunities to travel and work with great clients.

    Cons

    Turnover is very high in this organization, pay is very low, and administratively they are challenged. There are lots of mix-ups and miscommunication. Employees are viewed as resources rather than human beings.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people as if they are your most important resource. Change your business model to focus on the value of the training that you offer rather than the price. This would allow you to pay a better wage.
