    Learned a lot of people skills here.

    Lead (Current Employee)
    Saint Paul, MN

    Prosthis is a excellent place to learn customer service skills that is so important in todays job market. I received a promotion to Asst. Manager quickly, leapfrogging longer tender employees. Would be great job for college student.

    ConsLack of communication from management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the Supervisor do their job, give them totally control of staff. Get rid of all the mirco-managing that is going on.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    After School Program

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Saint Paul, MN

    ProsI like being able to work with children and staff. They have great benefits and also provide good work times.

    ConsI dislike how the higher in staff treats the rest of the members. They think they are everything and were not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think that it will definately improve your professional careers as a steping stone only and not a dream career.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
