Unfortunately, I have to concur with another person's comments about Premiere. Their racism is so severe I was forced to go to offices in Harlem and file a civil rights suit against them, and one Ms. Stephanie Kreiger, the manager of the NY Office. In short:
I tested and was told I oculd benefit for their training program for a word processor position in a law firm, and was given a legal secretary position in the meantime@ S&S ( great lawfirm) I did all their excercises, and helped other students (caucasian) in my class as well. Long story short, myself and the other african american girl were told by our instructor that we passes the first test, only to be told later htat day by stephanie that our instructor made a mistake and that we'd have to take more classes and test later. One class later they told us they would not test us at all because we were not concentrating, and were not grasping the material as well as the other students, and that we owed them $1400.00 to pay for the course because we had wasted their time. I didn;t have to pay becaue I told them I would sue ( I didn't, just filed the complaint) They are still operational while under investigation, unfortunately. Do yourself a favor and stay away.
