"Rewarding place to work to make a difference in the lives of young people, good co-worker collaboration, very poor management relationships. No opportunity for advancement unless you are part of the in-crowd. Very little management support in day to day classroom issues."

"Bad things happen at this center. The educators don't care if you learn as long as you sit down and shut up. The students will steal from you in a heart beat and have no problem trying to destroy you as a person. There's more gang association there than I ever saw. The food is bad, dorms are cold, rules are strict for the white girls only it seems. You're the minority and no one will listen or help you, there's drugs everywhere. I was harassed daily and nothing was done to stop it. I hated it."

"I've worked at Gary for 3.5 years and I have not ever work for a more dysfunctional company than Gary Job Corps. The management don't support you. They expect you to move mountains but don't give you the tools or supplies to do so. If you are not a pretty lady or if you do not look good in a skirt or if you are not a behind kisser, you will not make it to management. A lot of management do not have degrees so they have issues with employees that do."
