Former Employee - Trainee

I worked at QA full-time for less than a year

Pros

1. Great training program, most trainers are very dedicated to helping you understand the technologies that you will be taught. 2. QA has very well renowned clients. So if you work hard and with a... bit of luck, you might end up working for a great company ( which is a great start for your career) 3. They are trying to immerse you into the working conditions of an actual big company, which is great to get you prepared for a future job. 4. If you ask for help, you will get it. No one will push you more than you can push yourself!

Cons

1. Lack of communication between management, and people behind the scenes that are responsible for finding you a job. 2. If you are deployed, you are likely to remain on a fixed contract with QA for... 2 years, however, I was lucky enough to be "bought off" by the company I currently work for, which cancels the QA contract. 3. If you have no programming experience, you really need to work hard to keep up with the rest of the cohort, which may be more experienced.

Advice to Management

More communication between staff and trainees.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Academy for Professional Training full-time for more than a year

Pros

There is potential to work a lot of hours here. The time off policy is fairly lax but at the same time you may be off but you more than likely will not be paid.

Cons

This company only pays you for what you work. Nothing in terms of benefits. Hourly wage only. Salary is not comparable with other positions in the same market.

Advice to Management

Promote from with in, interview and hire better. Don't be afraid to become organized.
