Pros – Good training, good materials, fun work.
Cons – Limited hours available, no benefits.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Pay is high for the industry. Methodology is superior to competitors'; training is extensive and helpful.
Cons – You get paid more, but the margin the company makes per teacher is higher because the classes are often packed over capacity. This makes teaching more stressful than at comparators and prevents you from providing much individual attention for struggling students.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire more teachers; restrict class size.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Flexibility for unpaid time off.
Director gives clear and straightforward instructions on what is expected.
Free indoor parking for full time employees.
Working with really cool people (still friends with coworkers).
Great location to work (at the Water Garden): the WG hosts a couple of events every year with catered food and live entertainment.
Cons – Report to several managers who give tasks that have the same level of priority.
Completing tasks in a timely manner can be overwhelming, with constant phone interruptions (heavy focus on customer service support).
Too rigid in terms of clocking in and out. They should focus on the quality of work that the employees are delivering, rather than whether or not they clocked in 30 seconds early.
No benefits (health, dental, vision, etc.)
Advice to Senior Management – A little trust goes a long way; and background checks certainly don't hurt.
Pros – Very good pay, fun work, students are always easy to work with, flexibility is great in hours + locations, good training program
Cons – The management can be poor at communicating and often there is a general sense that the company is largely disorganized
Advice to Senior Management – Try to appear less confrontational to other competitors-- need to work on marketing, still too niche, not necessarily well known
