All about the money, not about the children/staff

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsI work with some fun people, that's about it anymore. I used to love working here. Now I have to drag myself out of bed every morning.

ConsTerrible work/life balance. Having to work close to 60 hours a week but salaried so only getting paid for 40 hours. Changed the way directors achieve bonus so it's practically impossible. It takes forever to get the go ahead from corporate to withdraw children with terrible behavior problems so meanwhile we are getting spit on, hit, kicked, and punched on a daily basis.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management all need to spend a week doing the duties of a director to understand everything the job requires and how stressful the position is.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Kindercare full-time for more than a year
