There have been a lot of changes in staff of Northlands Job Corps Center. They have tours every week, and a lot of activities are going on. You can go and check it out, tours are on Wednesday, dn't know the time, it's in the morning.

Northlands really could have alot to offer and is good for the community but the "most" of the staff don't give a rat arse about the students or their futures they just look forward to their next crummy pay check and how what more the can do to make their budget increase by over populating the campus and keeping people there who have had loads of offences and broken the rules constantly and terming the people who do diserve that second chance people that wanted to or really needed to be there.

I am a student of Northlands Job corps.. a residential student.. and it is not what the recruiters make it sound like, AT ALL. There are a lot of rude,loud, inconsiderant, arrogant, disrespectful, and obnoxious students here. Most of the guys are perverts and want to fuck anything that walks. The staff doesnt give two fucks about the student, only a very select few. They get paid by the amount of students who come here. They get $30,000 dollars every new student they get, and when a new student leaves/gets terminated they have to give $15,000 dollars back. The food is nasty, the dorm life sucks, the people suck. I met my boyfriend of almost five months here, and he is the ONLY thing keeping me here... I got my license, and diploma on my own, NOT through job corps. The staff says that they are scrict with drugs/alcohol, but I see on a DAILY BASIS drugs being used.. and EVERY weekend students getting drunk, and they go into the chapel (student rec center) drunk or high off their asses, and staff has no clue. Staff doesnt care, there are only a select few like I said that give a damn about us students. This place gives you the worst anxiety and depression ever, mine has gone through the roof being here. I cant stand it, if I never met my boyfriend I would be long gone, I have a headache every day from the idiots who are here, it is seriously like jail, and there is slim to no good things here. Enrolling here is not highly recommended!!!!

- I worked there as one of those staff that did give a shit, and everyday was a constant chase, tracking down those who were drunk and high, upper management had a huge role in how the center went to shit, Elo among many other senior staff were committed to the worst of the student body while terming kids they generally disliked. If a student was injured (life threatening injury per say) poilcy was to call the RLS who then calls ELO who then calls the CD and then a decision is made as to weather an ambulance can be called. I found this out after reaching for my cell to call 911 for a seizure a girl was having on the sidewalk in front of the school, we could lose our job for not going through all of those channels too. Job corps is a very corrupt organization by nature having worked at more than on facility ive seen the racket. no dont enroll
