Often short staffed so they schedule you for 9 hours and give you a 1 hour break half the time and the other half anywhere from no break to 30 mins
Fast paced. High turnover. Consistently asking for more but then say no breaks, no raises, and please drive an hour to go help another site.
I really wouldn’t. They have many issues that need to be overcome in the meantime. Like hours, salary, appreciation, turnover, and many more. The one thing I would say they do well is sponsorships.
Benefits are moderately ok. Dental is sadly a checkup every 9 months instead of the usual 6 months. Minimal eye care, just exams. Vacation is 2 weeks until you’ve been there 3 years then 3 weeks. They give you half a sick day a month and if you are sick in January you have 0 days until February then you have Half a day so your not allowed to be sick. Even when you are sick they are often short staffed and ask you to come in with a fever.
I was at a kids and company for 12 years
Only made 15.60 as an rece
Horrible pay compared to other day cares
Poor salary, overworked, mandatory meetings that are overtime but they refuse to pay overtime hours even when confronted with it. Often they make mistakes on paystubs and take weeks of arguing and showing proof that you worked those hours before they fix it or even decide to look into it. Often short staffed and have little or no breaks. Poor communication between head office, directors, teachers, and families. If a teacher is leaving they often don’t want families to know until after they have left. Short on art supplies, terrible food. Cameras in classrooms which make many people uncomfortable. Consistently asked to work more even when they still won’t pay overtime at times or look into pay stub mistakes. Call teachers to come in with fever since often short staffed, earn half a sick day a month at the end of each month so often go without pay when you are able to call in sick and are really sick. Terrible work culture all around and they seem to think a terrible monthly snack will show teacher appreciation. It really doesn’t.
You go in for an interview, the site director asks you 20 questions and then you leave. after you are required to do some paperwork and get a health clearance from your doctor.
