It was okay until I received a job at ISD.

I have been working at Child Care Associates full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The company has great benefits and it always feels great to help children who are at risk. Working with other great people make the job even better.

Cons

The bad side of the company is you aren't paid enough for all the work that has to be done and you work during the summer unlike the independent school districts.

Advice to Management

be appreciative of your staff

    Helping students get a good start. Staff very supportive

    TA's need more money as well as teachers.

    Next time when closing schools down go and check out the schools in mind first. Sometimes your first thought may not be the best.

    Pros

    The kids are always characters and depending on what facility you're at, it can be a comfortable workplace.

    Cons

    Everything else. -Pay is ridiculously low. In-N-Out burger makes more money. -Management mostly consists of devil women who have no consideration for their employees and gossip like 14 year olds. -Trainings are completely meaningless and require travel for information that could be sent to you in an email -Staff in general has a petty gossip issue -Food is supposed to be healthy for the kids, but consists of the same food being rotated on a 2 week cycle, that comes out of bulk cans of preservatives and freezer bags, and tons of salt and butter. (I gained 3 consistent pounds working there, even trying to avoid the meals, which you can't because it's part of the curriculum) -Job culture is heeeeaaavily Christian. I'm personally not Christian, and a lot of the parents aren't either. To me, embedding that into the classroom environment seems wrong and uncalled for. It's not a Christian based company (it doesn't state that anywhere), I don't think that should be so heavily influenced around the kids. They'll make that choice when they're older and work with that with their parents.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Give your employees more money for the work they're doing so they stop leaving all the time, and work out your issues with accepting mentally handicapped kids. None of the teachers are trained in handling kids of that magnitude, so maybe putting two in a classroom of 15 or so, with 1-2 teachers is not a smart choice.
