I recently got hired at a firm that required an associates degree and minimum of 4 years experience, neither of which I have. I explained in my cover letter why I thought I'd be a good fit in spite of that and it got my foot in the door. During the interview, they asked if I'd be willing to go for that associates degree. I asked them if they could teach me on the job. They said yes but that is have to pay and there would be no degree involved since they aren't a university.

I came from a minimum wage job where I made about $1200 per month. Here I make about $2000 a month. They're charging me $750 a month for one year for the on the job training. I'm under contract. Also, my boss gets the $750 as the training is between he and I personally.

That means, for the first year, I don't make more at this job but after that I'll enjoy a full 2k a month - the most I've ever made.

Is it worth it? Can my boss hire himself out as a consultant to educate me and charge me for it?

Having to pay to become a trainee sounds ludicrous to me.

Besides that, for that amount of money you might as well go to a university. It's an absolute ripoff.
>>
I forgot to mention:after the first 2 weeks, he hasn't taught me anything. I've been there for 2 months but the contact includes "supervision of my progress. "
>>
OP, post a pay stub.

This is not believable.

You're getting fucked in the ass. But, a year of getting fucked in the ass for 1 year could be comparatively better than getting fucked by college for 2 years.

Is it a job with transferable skills?

Don't even listen to these kids. You're making a hair more than you did before, and after a year it doubles; plus, experience is absolute king on a resume, so now you'll never need to sit in a sociology class to be an accountant.

Take the deal and be grateful you aren't one of the

Yes

That's how I was looking at it at first. It just seems strange, out of the ordinary.It' also a little nerve wracking because I owe him $9,000 in $750 payments. I owe him the money even if I quit or get fired so I'm stuck.

Your bill and pink slip will fit in the same envelope.

Lol
>>
>>1086994
if 9000 is not in contract u dont owe him shit and he is probably useing you as a tax writeoff and easy money. Think aboiut it idiot, the 2000 puts you in higher tax bracket
>>
This is absolute nonsense.

Quit your job, find a new one and stop paying him.

>employers are now charging money for training
It was only a matter of time...
I feel like this will become more widespread as job competition increases.
>>
>charging you money for training
That's illegal. Its a pyramid scheme. OP RUN AWAY!
>>
>>1087013
Also 9000 is all that I paid for my Associate's Degree at a community college over the course of 2.5 years

Talk to a labour lawyer, if you have a case work there for a while then sue
