    I have been working at Brightside Academy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with and there is free childcare if you need it.

    Cons

    The new owners have created an evironment where employees are pushed out of their positions or so overworked that they burn out and quit. They won't hire anyone new for positions they just transfer someone who is unqualified to that position on top of whatever they were doing beforehand.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better and stop asking for employees to work unpaid on their time off and weekends.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brightside Academy (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the HR supervisor I think. She was horrible. Was actually shocked that she was in her position. For such a supposed professional company it didnt seem that way in the interview.
