I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers

Pros

The directors and employees were nice, helpful, and professional.
You can request off easily.
Got a chance to work with children of different ages and needs.
Didn't have to communicate with parents - the directors do that.
Didn't have to worry about lesson plans.
They look at teachers as professionals.
The required employee meetings were not a waste of time - I actually obtained good information from them.
Directors always encouraged us to make school connections so students can use skills in school.
Directors were very supportive and helpful to teachers when students are having discipline issues.

Cons

Not too many part time hours.
The pay could be better. I know I didn't have to worrry about communicating with parents and doing lesson plans, but $15 an hour rather than $10 would be nice considering that teachers must be certified.
The lessons are taken from several books so the lessons are mostly disjointed, but I communicated how skills can be intergrated as I was teaching to make lessons less disjointed.
The training was structured - but would have liked more practice.
Some of the students - especially the secondary students - do not want to be there and do not behave well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management is professional and helpful. In my opinion, I feel that the vocabulary list needs to be updated - some of the words are too easy - particularly for secondary students. I think the pay should be higher.

    Pros

    Educational mission and the commitment of the franchisees and center staff

    Cons

    Founders are not open to any new ideas and force a stale and fear driven political corporate culture. Hours are long and unreasonable.
    Founders do not trust franchisees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the CEO and senior managers do their job... get the founders out of the daily operations.

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn many aspects of running a business.
    Working with students is rewarding.
    Possible 4 day work week.

    Cons

    Almost never qualify for the bonus that they sell you in the interview process as "unlimited bonus potential."

    Harsh management rarely satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition for a job well done would go a long way. Set reasonable sales goals and provide a larger budget for marketing activities.
