These places are a joke.I was there and had stay two weeks with no job gaining a extra $1,000 in debt.The place charges $6oo for rent and puts you at a job making $8.50 an hour.Plus transportation fees of $25 a week.I owed only $1,110.50 which my family had to pay in full because in four months they only put $500 towards my fine.

These people don't want to work. They are constantly complaining and trying to get restrictions so they can get easier jobs. Some even try to file worker's comp claims on problems they brought on the job when they were hired. I would not recommend hiring these people. They are a libality.
