I was placed in a traffic control job by Nova but the owners husband worked for Nova and got the grant from department of employment and only paid me $17 an hour and the award was $28.95 .
When I left they owed me 8 weeks of wages .I now have a supervisors ticket and I'm no fool .Nova take advantage of people with disabilities and tort the system .The company was Astute Traffic management and never paid tax for their workers .The company I believe now is under new management.
Feels like you're still doing all the work on your own, don't seem too motivated to offer much help and support, promise more than they ever deliver, don't listen to you, often dismissive when contacting them, offer inappropriate job options, seem to mainly offer a one size fits all approach, relying on them has been more harmful than helpful.
Had been a client for a while. When I had arrived to a few of my many scheduled appointments my consultant wasn't even in the office and I never got notified that my consultant wouldn't be there so basically showed up for nothing. Jobs that I was interested in they apparently couldn't get so all they could offer me was minimum wage jobs.
I was with a different nova as a client at a different location a few years ago. One time i arrived to get some documents looked at i and about 3 other clients had to wait due to all the staff members were t...oo busy eating their lunch and talking. I would never go back again as it seems they prefer to talk among each other (the staff) rather than help those seeking work. In my opinion terrible service if I could rate it (0) stars I would.

We signed up our daughter late in 2016 so that she could attend the interview/introduction sessions. In early 2017 we finally received confirmation that she had been allocated to the interview/information sessions. Over the space of the next 6 months we attended various meetings and workshops, filled in paperwork and worksheets and made all of the workshops except the last one, and that was because of mix up with email communications. Since then we have heard nothing, despite leaving 2-3 phone messages with the person who conducted the workshop...s, and her supervisor. We have also sent several emails as well, but no response. Our daughter who has an intellectual disability is distraught, and she simply thinks that NOVA no longer wants anything to do with her. I had heard so many good things about NOVA, but this is no way to treat anyone, let alone someone with a disability!
