Pittsburgh job corps is the most crappiest to work and the treatment students and staff is beyond degrading they have poor supervision and the food up there is very terrible as a former employee this is the worst job i have ever had the stuff ive seen go on is utterly shocking i hope someone sees this report and do the right thing when they see this first and foremost not only was i treated unfairly i was wrongly fired i was horribly discriminated against and treated like a complete animal and so where others let me just start from the top I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYBODY SENDING THERE KIDS HERE OR IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR EMPLOYMENT DON'T NOT APPLY FOR A JOB THERE !!! very unprofessional and the security team is terrible as well as human resources Nadine Nolfi and Melissa Martacos do not keep s**t confidential at all !! and they do alotta racial profiling towards blacks that are working in the facility especially in the kitchen. [continued below]....
..... let me just start from saying they only reason they hired me i truely believe to save face from me filing a civil law suit against them for discrimnation the position i was hired for it wasn't even the one i wanted the manager degraded me so bad i came home in tears on 3-27-12 i originally interviewed with a security manager position with that a*****e RONNIE SMITH THE HEAD SECURITY MANAGER and he just completly insulted me askin me how old i was twice and basically said he seen no dependability in me insulted my work credentails and then when we were talking about the benifits i told him i am disabled and i get benifits he basically said he was cutting the interview shortchanging the real reason he didn't wanna hire me because he said he has to figure out how we deal with people with disabilites im like wat the hell do you mean i am capable of doin this job to the full capabilities so when i got home my mom noticed that i was upset and asked what happened and i told her how i was treated by mr.smith she inmediatley called him and asked what he did to have me feeling the way i felt and he was rude to her as well !!! he stated that he needed to talk to his people about how to deal with people like him n she said what do you mean you mean you people ?? so when my mom was going back and forth with him about the disability act he was trying to rush her off the phone and was ignorant and nasty towards her when she asked what is it that you want to know about people with a disability cause i can tell you all you need to know he states maam i have to talk to my superiors about how we deal with people like him he starts trying to rush her off stating that they are a state ran facility he couldn't discuss the issue with her stuttering and talking to her very rudely so on an end note my mom calls and speaks with the human resources dept manager nadine nolfi and her assistant melissa martacos for a lengthy conversation and she and melissa felt with my degree in food service that id be a better fit for there food service aide position they had open and they also assured my mom that they had the best intrest at heart for me and that there company doesnt do business in that manor. i would say the next day or two i was called back by food service manager Micheal smalley and his uncle tom assistant food service coordinator novella pickens they interviewed me and the less then 2 days i was hired for the aide position on april 17th 2012 and the day of orientation melissa martacos spoke to me and said the issue on mr smith was handled and don't mention it to nobody cause rumors spread fast in the facility and she said mike and novella don't know what happend i said ok i won't obviously the issue wasn't taken care of with myself and mr smith the from the time to i was there to the time i was fired it was complete anarchy the whole entire staff knew about my disability and mike smalley and ronnie harrassed me on a daily basis with racial slurs and just finding reasons to just pick with me not only him and mr smith but staff and students would bother me mike smalley and my co worker raymond rose were trying to pad me for fraternization and other things to make it look like i wasn't doing my job at all and i was a lazy worker mike would make me work harder then others by pulling trash with maggots and make me clean up and do others bullshit a*s jobs that they didn't want to do while ronnie on the other had would report me n say i was being outside with students fraternizing then have it to where i was wan't even aloud outside my work area to talk to anybody i believe that he only did that cause he held a grudge cause of our sour interview we had. MIKE AND NOVELLA AND RONNIE are all pussies and are afriad to to enforce the rules so they did whatever to make it look like they were doing there f**kin jobs my co worker had everybody in there shook to the point no one would say anything and RONNIE SMITH b walking around like hes so bad a*s and don't do s**t mind job corps policy on fraternization is suppositley strict so why the hell is that we have a pedophile and a sex offender going to school and working with the job corps students that place worries about the dumbest s**t instead of worrying about making the facility a better place for the kids smh i have seen alotta s**t in that place that should have them shut down it was almost like working at another penn state where ray was jerry sandusky and mike smalley was joe paterno and the other two assholes where his assistants now as i progress into the job my coworkers along with mr rose and the head cook dorthy coleman would make fun of me on a daily basis mind you when i first got there ray had already knew that ronnie smith didnt want me and so did other people in the security crew im like how the hell did you know that s**t which goes to show that human resources doesn't keep s**t confidential at all as time progesses ive notice that mike smalley would say s**t that to me and pad things on me for things that my co-worker ray rose aka MR SANDUSKY was doin well i got snitched on for fraternization 3 times mike had me sign an agreement for there stupid a*s fraternization policy then on 8/2/12 i called off and mike said i didn't and his a*s tryed to make me write a statement and i refused and he also tryed to make me write one in reguards to the fratinizing policy im not writing on some s**t i already know about n that ain't doin n the main culprit your not saying s**t to em so i signed the statement on callin off and all that i said ok whatever so they can shut up !!! but as time goes on i noticed alotta things that werent being done to address issues goin on as far as mike smalley not giving staff lunch breaks i never got a lunch break when i wanted to take one he wuld find more things for me to do cause he didn't like me cause i saw straight threw him !!! i also noticed mr smalley would have us serve molded food in the job corps kitchen and uncooked poultry and meat which i have enclose a few photos to prove also ive seen him cook things with rats in the stove and also roaches where we have cooked the food n served students i have spoke to human resources and tryed to reach out to them several times in reguards to these matters and mike smalleys treatment of me my mom called on my behalf as well asked nadine with my son being disabled don't you think it would be better for mike to take him under his wing and show him how to do a better job instead of having staff saying hes slow as molasses and also saying his work eithic sucks cause mike would belittle me and no one said anything about like for examle mike was trying to get me into trouble for the death of my grandma by saying i missed to many days by disrespecting me saying could u get a rack and a trash can since u ain't doing s**t and go to hr and then he alter my schedule to where i had the worst days off and then a few months later rumors begin to fly i collect a disability check ray rose and the other staff members took this as a advantage to harrass me futher and make fun of me this is when i reached my breaking point and got tired and started looking for other means of employment so they were saying i take pills and i was weird and iam retarded i was really comin home stressed out and severly depressed of the treatment i was recieving from my co workers and other staff that didn't even belong in the department including mr smith trying to find ways to pick at me in certain situations id would say in mid july i was under heavy investigation along with 2 other co workers for having a student in my house it went heavy all over i talked wth melissa martacos about it she said it would b handled of course nothing was done about n r then the uncle tom ronnie smith questioned the student about it she said no and the investigation was dropped but had me being watched and also ive noticed the racial profiling when nadine and melissa kept just targeting the blacks in the kitchen to get information on certain co workers i said wow not only is this place predjudice but very rasist as well i also heard a story about mike not letting a white staff worker in the cafeteria for dating a african american man i believe this to be very true because i seen him act very rasist towards the school secretary there and said she wasn't allowed in the cafeteria for wearing a d**n ulter top wtf is that he also harrassed a former disabled employee alvynia turner to the pint where she couldn't look for new employment within the company and blocked from movin up by havin her writtin up and the center director molly taleb and director joe garrett are unaware of the illegal activity going on in the kitchen as well as the facility at pay attention the dumbest s**t ever i can recall there was an incident where 3 lincoln kids that were none students entered the facility looking for a unknown student at the time but where was ronnie smith !! yeah there around fr safety smh there are guards that be on duty at that campus that sleep and don't GIVE TWO f**kS what goes on in that facility my co worker ray rose mr sandusky has given the kids weed and has sold them cartons cigorettes and has had sexual relationships with over a dozen students male and female and has went to tables and dropped candy in front of students on over 100 occasions and my bosses novella and mike knew and didn't do nothing cause they were intimidated but came down on me cause i was there age my co worker even said to i f**k em regardless i got frustrated to the point where i called him out in many of these issues which steams down to my wrongful firing !!!! on 10-5-12 i was called in hr to meet with mike novella and nadine
which i believe i was fired based on retaliation and my co-worker telling mike i was leaving earl and i wasn't i was doing what i was told mike had a write for me to sign that said i had stole time up 25 times and also documented time i wasn't in for working which included extended lunches etc which i believe ray rose and mike had a plan to get me out cause i knew too much info that can get the place shut down so mike tried to hand me the write up after saying i was fired i hoped out my chair and didn't even take the write up and left n went home i spoke to my mom n told her i was fired she called up there and asked y i was let go they didn't even have a answer besides saying i falsified records and i was doin what i was told by mr pickens and other co-workers so nadine and melissa wanna be assholes and play dumb as af not know what the hell what we were talkin about cause we were on the phone for an hour with them and when my mom asked nadine why wasn't i warned about stealing this supposit time she didn't have nothing to say which proves i was fired based on bullshit they fired my other co-worker for the same thing but the only difference is she was doin that on pupose CAUSE SHE HATED BEING there which i can say i don't blame her then after i was fired they were asking me for info in reguards to my co-worker having sexual relations with the students and intimidating the staff i said everyting you need to kno you to ask your security team and other people its common knowledge i would not feed you any info on him or his activity and mr smalleys failure to report his activity a month after i was fired they fired my co-worker ray rose for fraternization but DIDN'T FIRE MIKE SMALLEY WAT THE f**k IS THAT !!! AND MIKE RONNIE NOVELLA DORTHY AND ELSE ANYBODY READING THIS YOU CAN KISS MY a*s AND FOR THE RECORD YOU HAVENT HEARD THE LAST OF ME !!!! so i filed for uc compensation they awarded me that but they took it off me on 12-5-12 due to me not showing 4 the uc referee board mmeating i am nit fifghten you for 150 dollars every two weeks and my mom ended up being hospitalized and they wouldn't postpone the hearing so i did the only smart thing i can do was take them to civil rights court with a attorney which i currently have a case against them now which i ever in my right mind thought id have to do in my entire life PITTSBURGH JOB CORPS CENTER IS NOT WHAT THE COMMERAIL MAKES it out to be so parents please think twice before enrolling your kids in that place i feel like the misleading conception is totally wrong and treatment of the staff and students is just horrible i hope others read my story and heed warning cause me being almost 6months i heard alot and a saw alot of rasism and prejudices and alotta staff being fired for fratinization of students i wouldnt recommend job corps for any young adult Trying to better them selves they don't give a f**k about the students there either i think that the way they treat staff and the students is beyond crap i have reported them to the media several or 8 times but no one has reached out to hear my story but id wrather chill with homeless people then work with job corps there reputation of treating co workers like peaces of s**t really looms large !!!!! the place needs to b shut down for having a sex offender with students and a child molsetor working around them as well from a educational stand point that place has great programs but the end route of it all is the unprofessional staff how they are un organized it is really messed up and sad i can say but the company won't hear the last of me at all i hope people read my story n take it seroiusly if there anybody that has any info they like to share please feel free to reply with a rebutual thanks
