Available programs in Mexico include cashier, sales and customer service and financial services sales.

June 2016 Updates

Generation Mexico has now graduated 290 young adults from our first program, focused on retail cashiers. Graduates currently have an 80% placement rate within two weeks after graduation. Last month, we launched a second program in sales and customer service, and already have 50 students enrolled in it.

Retail employers have been pleased with our graduates, who are outperforming their non-Generation peers on every measure starting on day 1 of their jobs. They score 40% higher than non-Generation hires during customer orientation. They require less in-store training than others. Their cash registers are better balanced, with an average end-of-day deviation that’s half that of the control group. And they increase their productivity more quickly than others. In fact, two members of our most recent class were promoted within a month of graduation! It’s early in our measurement, but so far attrition and attendance are also better than average.

With all of that, most significantly, 94% of supervisors say that they want to hire a Generation graduate again!
