Adam Weiner is possibly the best teacher I've ever had and Jobtrain is an amazing program. I've never been a part of anything like Jobtrain and I am so grateful to have had such a unique experience. I've learned skills and tricks that no one except someone like Adam could teach. I'm sorry to see Mime's close b/c I wish more young people could have the amazing experience that I've had.

This is definitely a 5star organization. They rolled out the red carpet in every aspect of our training and welfare. I'm very proud to have had the priviledge of being in such good company. I found Chef Adams and JobTrain to be top shelf people that take pride in their work. [This review was transcribed by a GreatNonprofits staff member.]

I am amazed by the great attitudes of students here, not just in my class but those I meet in the school cafeteria. We all share what we know. It is possible to learn all the technology here, not just what a company is pushing. [This review was transcribed by a GreatNonprofits staff member.]

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunity they give you to study here.

Ways to make it better...

I had more teachers and more attention from each teacher--asking if I needed help, etc. The classes are often just you learning by yourself, it would be really helpful if teachers came to work with you more.

I came to JobTain to increase my computer skills so I could be more job marketable. It is such a warm and caring atmosphere. The staff here all seem to be very dedicated and enjoy their jobs. Its services goes beyond the actual computer classes. The have a clothes closet to find clothes for your interviews and a career closet they send you to where they have very high quality clothes to also help for interviews. They have mock interview training. Help with resumes. Life Skills training. Speakers from various companies. I could go on and on. This school is far more that I expected. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to increase their skills in just about any field. It is all free. What more could you ask.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen changes in many peoples lives. I have seen growth in the people in the class. People get great jobs. I have made many friends that will continue after training is over. Classmates support each other. The support of each other is so great for some of us this is a hard road.

Ways to make it better...

They hired a new receptionist. She is friendly and greets me. When I come in. I am glad because the other receptionist was not friendly and it was very hard to get a hello. I think there should be no smoking in the front of the building. It does not look very inviting when guests come or people driving by. It gives a wrong impression of what really goes on here at JobTrain.
