They schedule you for 9 hours and give you one hour break and 15 minutes, but more often than not the centre is under staffed and you don't get a break or only get half. At one centre in BC I never saw the 15 minute break in over 4 years.
Often very fast paced, and asking for more than can be done in one day, they will also ask for lots of paperwork to be done and not give any time to do it. Always asking for more but giving nothing back in return.
Flexible for supply, but they are only flexible depending on how short staffed they are, and I have seen centres purposely kept short staffed at times.
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.
So many things. Actually listening would help, when making payroll mistakes fix them immediately instead of denying they happened then fixing them 2 months later, actually pay staff a fair wage, show some trust for staff instead of creating rules across the country because one person made a mistake, don't keep centres short staffed so teachers are actually able to have breaks instead of exhausting themselves, centres look a little to clinical they need some nature and ability to decorate the classes, actually show appreciation instead of giving a sad snack once a month and a 2 minute video. Theres more but thats all I can think of at the moment.
Salary, working conditions, exhaustion, no breaks, constantly switching teachers between rooms, allowing teachers to talk to families more, way too much secrecy. They don't allow staff to talk to parents when they decide to give 2 weeks they sometimes put it in a footnote in the weekly newsletter, constant mistakes on paycheque and no accountability at head office when this occurs they even refuse to when given proof they made a mistake, sick days are earned 1/2 a day per week and they force teachers to stay if they are sick and come in when sick since centres are kept short staffed they don't really allow staff to be sick.
An interview and criminal record check, other than that they will hire anyone with the right designation ECA, ECE, IT because they are so short staffed and have high turnover.
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.
