I worked at Brooklyn Job Corps when it was the number 1 Job Corps Center in the nation. The new Director Pitman has taken the Center to # 67th in the rankings, the last time I heard. Pitman is the worst Center Director in the nation. He should be fired.

While there was some staff that took time out to help students when needed Administration staff overall was lacking to address concerns in safety. Recreation staff was excellent. The building itself was infested with mold ceiling falling down which to instill pictures of and showed Administration and never got any resolution from it. Students were threatened with expulsion for leaking any information that showed the Atlanta Center in bad light... Read more

I was a student at ECCJC in 1986 and from what I have been reading here simply amazes me after 30 years now nothing has changed about this place! I lasted there for 4 months because the drama going on at the campus. I recall that the RA were the same as they describe them to be today and yes this place reminded me of a prison because it was one way on the campus and one way off! The Greyhound bus station was actually located on the campus so... Read more

* If you're female, JC is not a good/safe place. The center I lived at (Clearfield, UT) had a ratio of 1 female for every 8 males, and it was considered one of the more "diverse" campuses. Every other Tuesday were the days for new female students to arrive, so it was known as "New Booty Tuesday." Every NBT, the Residential Advisors had to force large groups of boys away from the bus stop where new girls were dropped off because they would wait... Read more

Where I live. The people whom take your application for the program only submit the applications they want to submit. Just being honest. Do not sign up for the program and you have a disability. They will make you feel lower to floor. when you leave the office in Greensboro, NC. I know from experience. Secondly because you come out of North Carolina you wont have that many centers to choice from. Why because like i have said before they put... Read more

In 1977 I enrolled at Gary seeking to learn a trade. All went well at first but in a few weeks I was beaten up while asleep, my locker broken into and generally harassed. My trade instructor was an old man who talked about everything except the trade. Furthermore Job Corps' "mission " is unclear as to whether it is supposed to be a trade school or a social experiment. Staffmembers were often indifferent. The best thing I can say about it is... Read more

Both of my daughter's went to job corps, one is enlisted in the army with a trade of carpentry, & the other wildland firefighter works in masonry construction also. Point being life is what you make it. For kids that can't afford college, or dropped out of high school job corps is a great opportunity for a successful future. Thank you job corps! Read more

I went to Red Rock JCC in PA when I was 17 back in the early 90's. I will never say that there weren't fights, or drugs, or drama but I can't believe how some of these reviews whine about how rotten it is. I had nothing, nothing at all; not even a clue where to start and a friend asked me if I wanted to try it.. I stayed there for two years and I maintain friendships with more of than a dozen former students and staff members from my time... Read more
