" I am overwhelmed with positive feelings after leaving Cobb Works today. The staff is beyond patient and supportive...It is not every day that you witness exceptional customer service from everyone with whom you come in contact. I commend you and your staff for placing (your staff) in that position where they can guide and help people who may be down on their luck and seeking a new job or career."
