One year is spent in school and the other in a dealership or service facility. This does not mean that 1 solid year is spent in school; rather in a cooperative program you spend 8 to 12 weeks at school, and then work for 8 to 12 weeks. The switching back and forth continues for 2 years. Not only do you earn an hourly wage while you are working, you also earn credit toward your degree or diploma. Your work experiences are carefully coordinated with your experiences at school; therefore, it is called a cooperative program—industry cooperates with education.

Keep in mind that the employer agrees to pay you in exchange for your work, the quality of which is unknown before you start to work. When you accept employment, you accept the terms of compensation offered to you. Do not show up on the first day of work demanding more. After you have started working, progressed on the job, and made the company money, you can ask for more.
Make sure you are ready to start working. You need to have transportation to and from work and the required tools and clothes for the job. Typically before you begin to work, or at least before you get paid, you will fill out state and federal income tax forms. These forms give the company authorization to deduct income taxes from your wages. When you are an employee, the company must deduct those taxes. One form you will fill out is the employee withholding allowance certificate form, called the W-4.
