Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My Fiance' is a new student at PJCC and we feel he was completely mislead on the whole thing. His recruiter "Marissa Grogastein" told him that it was great place to achieve something, that the rooms was great, the food was best, basically she had us sold in to believing  that he would be able to be happy and get what he came there for.....Ehhh Wrong so so so wrong.  I wish i had her number I would call her and tell her that she lied and was just trying to do her job and get paid. Well job well done and now my love is having hard time.

Okay so he arrived  on October 15, 2012, it was so emotional all i could think about was when it was done how successful he would be. So a week goes by and everything was going fine. Good, great, wonderful. Second week goes by and already some BS. Mind you, when you get there you get a lock with key to put your on your lock with all your belongings. So my fiance decided to go get in the shower to start his day and when he come back he notices his underwear is gone and socks and a couple shirts and belongings, his key was in his id badge case inside his robe witch was in the shower room with him.only him and staff have a key. So of course staff provided someone with the key to go in his belongings. When he goes to report it staff tells him there is nothing they can do because the person is not a resident and that they could not replace any of his belongings. strike 1. 

Another is with a teacher that, thank God finally got fired, because he literally followed him trying to trip while he was walking up the steps his name was Mr. Jackson. Someone actually got hurt when he did it again. But on top of that there were these guys that picked a fight with him for no reason at and when he reported it to staff of course they told him to stop complaining, yea instead of doing something about it.   Oh yeah did i mention that they are not allowed to call  the police for anything or they will get terminated. yeah what kind of crap is that. I could only imagine why they don't want the authorities involved.  The staff is crooked they only care about is  money. just recently my fiance to jumped by a bunch of punks for no reason and the RA was supposed to be checking on the dorms every 15 mins where was he at playing pool  ridiculous. 

My fiance is a just use his second chance to do things right and support our family and job corp is interfering  with  that success also Officer Duty Allen Your Fired!!!!
