He shared that during bootcamp, he was evicted, his car was repo’d and was living on couches at various homes of his family. Jay was working prior to bootcamp but got fired for working 1 extra hour one week. He was moving furniture for a flood/disaster recovery company and was limited to 24 hours a week at $7.23 per hour. Jay graduated 2nd in the class! To really pull at the heart strings, our VP of HR noticed that he struggled to put a home address on his new hire forms.


He spent that last few years as a network support / desk side support engineer. But because of his physical size and weight (500 lbs) he could not go up and down ladders in his work. He’s always loved computers and felt he had a good chance at coding and came to test with us. He’s brilliant, smart, funny and everyone loves him. So far, he’s lost 70 pounds since starting his diet and joining our team and he finished first in Bc2’s class. He’s amazing in so many ways.


She spent the last three years at the University of South Alabama working on her BS in Electrical Engineering and after 3 years she realized he hated it. Anna’s dad and family friend referred her to Provalus and she graduated 2nd in her class with Provalus and will be joining the QA team for a Fortune 50 company.


Bryan worked the overnight shift at Walmart during Bootcamp to makes ends meet. He showed up at Walmart at 11pm and worked to 7am – had an hour off, then came to bootcamp from 8am to close. Slept for 2-3 hours and then went back to work at Walmart. To ensure he completed his graduation project, he put in for a leave of absence at Walmart (with no pay) so he can concentrate on his studies with Provalus.


He may have the most unique way of finding out about Provalus. He had just received a speeding ticket and while at court in Jackson Alabama (2 hrs away) he was telling the court clerk that he may not be able to pay the ticket as he was looking for a job. The court clerk had seen our news story on Channel 15 news and told him that we were hiring 300 people. So Russell got in his car and came to interview. He scored the highest of anyone so far on the CPAB of 213 and now he begins his new career in software development.


Chris lives with his mother off of the Golf Course where Provalus’ campus is being built. He initially fought the idea of a company building on the course (the rumor in town was that it was a factory) and went so far as to protest at a city council meeting. He quit mid-way through the bootcamp and mentally tap’d out. After coming back, he was committed. He was working in the kitchen at the local BBQ Joint – ironically where we had the Graduation Celebration Lunch. When we arrived for lunch, everyone came out of the kitchen and congratulated him for his accomplishment – one lady was even crying for his success.
