Owner is all about money not employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Naperville, IL

ProsGreat director, staff and kids. Clean. Wear uniforms. Closed week after Christmas with pay F/T employees only. Good with scheduling personal apts.

ConsOwner messes up on paychecks and makes us use vacation for sick, she keeps changing her mind on when u can use vacation. Owner does not replace broken items she waits a year or two. Owner doesn't communicate with parents when employees leave, making them confused. Benefits are too expensive takes ur whole paycheck. Owner doesn't know what employees are F/T or P/T.
No consistency with younger classrooms with what teachers will be in and out. Owner seems to not know what is going on in school but yet will come in and start bossing the teachers around.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer sick time separate from vacation. Let vacation roll over. Start listening to ur directors and staff and know ur staff. Need more room to breath with QA. Hold owners accountable in how they treat staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
