NCC Trains Job Seekers For New ShopRite Coming To Newark In 2015

ShopRite is slated to open a new supermarket in Newark—creating hundreds of jobs—and New Community Workforce Development Center is working feverishly to prepare job seekers to get hired when the store opens in 2015.

Under the direction of Rodney Brutton, NCC Director of Workforce Development, New Community has resurrected its Gateway-To-Work Supermarket Career Program, which trains job seekers, also called Associates, in ShopRite's computer-based systems and store operation procedures.

NCC has struck a deal with Wakefern Food Corporation, the parent company for ShopRite stores, to train Associates and, in turn, Wakefern will provide the curriculum and outfit a training facility housed at NCC on Morris Avenue in Newark, Brutton said.

GED Student Says He's Motivated By His Twin Daughters

The thief quickly racked up charges on the five different credit cards she had in her wallet at the time. Rosa also carried several documents with her personal information—a practice she's now stopped and warned seniors against.

"You name it, it was in that wallet," she told her audience at NCC Douglas Homes. With Rosa's personal information held hostage, the perpetrator used her identity to make unauthorized financial transactions. She reported her stolen wallet to the police but Rosa says it's taken her years to restore her damaged credit and unravel the mess. She urged seniors not to carry multiple credit cards or their Social Security, Medicare or insurance cards.
