This paper studies the organizational spaces of a training program in order to know their effects on the creation of young workers. For this purpose, an organizational ethnography study was carried out over a period of four months during 2019 in a fast-food company that trains and hires young people for their insertion into the labor market. Results encompass two axes: i) Organizational space dimensions, which accounts for the design of the space, the technologies, the rules, the work uniform, and the ideology of service; and ii) From the space to the subject, which establishes and describes the relationship between the dimensions already mentioned. Results show a young postmodern worker shaped from a self-esteem logic. The way in which these training and job placement processes generate young people who become functional for the labor markets is also a topic of discussion.
