Workforce Central Florida provided 5 workers for our Youth Centers. Their help was invaluable. The Workforce staff were very helpful and professional. The workers they provided were willing to learn and were great assets to the Youth Centers. I hope we have the same opportunity to work with them again this year.

Workforce Central Florida has developed a great program with the Remployment Intiative. We have participated in the Young Adult Program and twice in the Adult Program. We found 3 very valuable employees that we hired after the program was finished. We look forward to participating in the program in the future. All staff have been very helpful and professional. Thanks again!

We were able to take advantage of the WCF mobile unit to train our employees on the new version of Microsoft Office 2007. This training greatly reduced the learning curve for many of our employees and helped to make the transition to MS Office 2007 much smoother. We were glad to have this resource available to us for no cost.

Workforce of Central Florida is really a great place. During the summer of '09, I was bored with nothing to do and needed money. WCF put a together a summer program for teens like me. It was a great experience for us. We were able to stay off the street, make money and learn new skills also. I really hope that they do it for us this year in the year 2010.

Getting hurt on the job and being treated like a dog was my experience three months into the job site. The workforce people that I'd associated with were very unprofessional and should all... never mind. After being hurt and treated at the urgent care clinic I was told that I no longer had a place with Workforce central Florida and had to self terminate my program. I still bare three scars on my body from being rammed by person operating a forklift and then was thrown off the work site later that day. There is more misery to the tale that never got heard or justice served.

Enterprise Florida Inc., participated in the Workforce Central Florida Summer Job Connection 2009 prgram. We attended a half-day orientation session where the program is reviewed and expectations are set. We came prepared with specific job descriptions for each opening and were able to interview candidates for our 5 job openings. We provided orientation for our interns and set very clear expectations. Each intern was assigned a supervisor. The interns also met with the HR Director on a weekly basis. We mentored and coached them to success. Our interns were professional and truly added value. They enhanced our lives and we are truly thankful for the experience.
