Former Employee - Center Director in Logan Township, NJ
Former Employee - Center Director in Logan Township, NJ

I worked at Kindercare full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I made some life long friendships and gained some great experience. Learned a lot of life lessons. I was also paid well.

Cons

For a company that is supposedly based on the needs of children, it is not very family friendly. There were weeks when I worked 60 hours with no compensation. The company does not care about its employees. There was minimal support from my most recent District Manager, who would not take responsibility for anything, and has since been terminated. Raises are not given and teacher wages are low. There is constant restructuring of the corporate positions, making it a very uneasy environment. It felt very unstable. Many of the people holding the corporate positions have never worked in childcare and were hired solely to run a business, not to cater to children and their families.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put yourself in the center director and staff shoes once in a while. They work very hard every day and most of you would have no clue how to run a center as well as they do.

    I worked at Kindercare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hourly wage wasn't bad, when working full time.

    Cons

    Mostly all female environment, tend to gossip, act in high school..(some are in high school) Not many are education majors nor college degreed which is fine but act envious towards those who had higher degrees of education. Very unpleasant management, strict and were lazy but acted busy while they were secretly browsing Facebook. Most who work there are miserable, but at least work well with the children which is all that matters. But not good for classroom mood. I was quick to find another job out of that environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't like your job QUIT. Don't take your misery out on others.

    Negative Outlook
