Upon honorable acceptance of an offer to enter the “DreamCAST Development Program” and concurrent employment with Big-O’s Pork and Dreams, each DreamCAST Apprentice is required to provide a written list of goals they wish to attain at various development intervals, as well as sign personal contracts of integrity, conduct, personal appearance, and unwavering positive behavior, worthy of Big-O’s mission.
In the development toward productive adult career minded citizens, each DreamCAST member will be consistently challenged to “Dream BIG-GER”, and thereby adjust their behaviors accordingly to attain each goal decision. Each DreamCAST Apprentice can become a permanent “DreamCAST Associate” of Big-O’s pending all short term personal, educational and professional goals have been attained and verified by their assigned executive community mentor, and Big-O’s management. As a DreamCAST Associate, responsibilities will include assisting and mentoring other DreamCAST Apprentices as necessary, in addition to increasing professional, educational and socially responsible community efforts.
