Unorganized management, low pay, no benefits, little to no chance of advancing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Prosworking with the kids, helping them learn

Cons-depending on location, management is young and disorganized
-hiring process was a little chaotic, was initially called to interview for a different position with better pay, but was given lower level position with significantly less pay, no benefits, and no opportunities to advance.
-not enough hours are given
-doesn't make workers feel like an asset, make them feel disposable.
-does not pay workers with higher education significantly more than workers without.
-high turnover

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
