I worked at Southwest Key Programs full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Enjoyed my job and working with co-workers

Cons

Terrible management. Despite numerous complaints from staff about local management, nothing was done!!! Low pay!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate management needs to make unannounced visits and listen to what staff has to say when you visit. Don't ignore staff complaints and don't protect bad program directors. Staff is the heart beat of the program, they do all of the hard work!!

    I worked at Southwest Key Programs as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the kids and interacting with them.

    Cons

    Everything from management to the pay. My car had gotten scratched while on the job tracking and they did nothing about it but had it been a company car, I would have been responsible. Please consider other job options before applying to this company. There is mileage reimbursement but it soes not even come close to what is being put into your car.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job and find a way to pay trackers more for the work that is being done.

    Pros

    This company really does do a lot to help the community. Some of the positions are very well funded, particularly if you are related to someone higher up.

    Cons

    They expect their teachers to work 60+ hours a week and then gripe at them for not working enough. They alter their student to teacher ratio by including "tutors" as their staff. They are running a "college prep academy," yet few students both to do homework. They pay for frivolous and unnecessary things and let a lot of enrichment fall to the wayside. Overwork their staff to the bone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your upper management and start over.
