I actually wrote a review of this company prior to this one that cast it in an unfavorable light. Though I was upset about the behavior of one of the contractors I was sent to work under, I think that I was unfair in my original review of this company. To be honest, these guys got me work when I had been unemployed for months and at rates higher than I got at other 2 other temp agencies I've worked for in the around here, and I did call in legitmately sick one one of my first days of work, and it is hard to tell a legitimately sick person from an unreliable person within the first few times of meeting them, but either way I inconvenienced Square One and made my work ethic questionable. So end point being that with my background in carpentry and construction, this company got me work for a lot more than the unemployment was getting me.
I attended the Word Level I & II training sessions at Career Choices. The trainers were great - Michelle and Nancy were both patient and thorough. Michelle went methodically through the lessen book while Nancy had more of a free flow kind of workshop. I learned a great deal from both of them. There were only two negatives: 1. At this time they only teach Microsoft product of 2007 or later. I use 2003 version and once I was back at the office I had some difficulty converting what I learned to the earlier version of Word. 2. The training room is EXTREMELY hot and unpleasant. The air conditioning and fan brought little relief. The uncomfortable environment was very distracting from the lessons. I would return for additional training.
I believe Career Choices offers the most in depth and thorough courses in Northern Nevada regarding the Microsoft Office System. The curriculum and teaching methodology provides a foundation which allows students to build upon skills they have learned and reinforces them through practical lessons. I also appreciate the professionalism of the teaching staff, all of whom go the “extra mile” to make sure students fully understand concepts and are eager to assist when questions arise. I fully recommend anyone interested in enhancing their computer skills to inquire about the programs offered at Career Choices.
