WARNING before you pursue this company! As a former Employee, I must give you some guidance before you spend any money with these people. They started off with 6 employees. After all of the basics and procedures of the business were set up, they laid off all 6 employees to hire “Volunteers” to teach and recruit new students. Four of the 6 employees had to file claims with the California State Labor Enforcement Board, due to non-payment of wages.
All four cases were successfully won by the employees and Final Judgment was handed down by the Alameda County Superior Court. They continue to receive money, graduate students, and conduct business. However, to date they STILL refuse to pay their former employees! The CEO/Executive Director, CFO, and all board members were aware all along that the employees were neither being paid nor going to be paid.
If these are the “Business Ethics” being practiced by A Hand ‘n Hand, Inc., I can only imagine what they will be teaching any prospective students.
How can you teach Customer Care if you can’t practice Customer Care with your own employees? How can you teach E-commerce or Entrepreneurial Management if you can’t run a business well enough to pay your employees? If you haven’t been paying your bills, what do you think your Credit Management skills are rated?
Please check public records in the Alameda County Courts, before you give these people any of your money or time. Labor suits are not the only judgments out there!
