I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time (more than an year)Pros
definitely room for personal growth within the building, company values are good. the key word here is-company, for profit company. does have the best development and growth of children in mind with the curriculum they present.Cons
a one hour lunch break that is not needed. some co-workers do not need to take a break while the director makes others take a full hour break daily. the scheduling of staff within building is always askew. not enough staff, too many staffed. No consistent schedule for staff.Advice to ManagementAdvice
allow directors to set a regular work schedule for lead teachers so there is no confusion for the children. They are always asking why the lead teacher is late, what took lead teacher so long to get here today. Kids need routine and structure within their classroom environment.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Learning Care Group.Interview Details
Applied online and had to take an assessment (which was very long). Received a call from the AD to set up an interview. The interview was at most 15 minutes, and I also got a tour of the school. I felt that the interview was laid back, but at the same time unprofessional. Employees would come in and out, AD answering phone calls from her personal cell. But I was hired on the spot and started a week later. (Keep in mind I am no longer there)Negotiation DetailsNo negotiating. However, once I started I was offered a raise (they said I got the raise, however it didn't show on my paycheck)Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
