    I worked at Brightside Academy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great for moving up in the career ladder and gaining experiences. This company is a very good step in your career.

    Cons

    Everything is cookie cutter. There is not alot of room for individuality.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more open and understanding to your staff. Also the children are not just pay checks they are important.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brightside Academy (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Very quick and brief. Because (and shortly after being hired and starting) you quickly learn that they're just beyond desperate for staff.
    So much of the staff doesn't even have a background working with children. At all!!! (other than their own)

    Interview Questions

    • Background.
      When's the soonest you can start?
      Why do you want to work with Children?
      - literally the most generic/ basic interview questions are asked.
