    I worked at Lightbridge Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with kids was such a rewarding experience, especially watching them grow through major milestones. The administration was very appreciative, brought in treats, paid attention to the little things and over all were very understanding of work/life balance.

    Cons

    The occasional disgruntled parent

    Advice to Management

    There's a lot of positives that people do not see, the trainings are paid for, the staff meetings usually have food served, CPR certifications, the director brings in a treat every Friday, administration has food brought in for special occasions and most of all the connections that are made. "It Takes a Big Heart to Shape Little minds" and everyone should be aware that there are a lot of big hearts here in Westfield.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lightbridge Academy (Trenton, NJ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It is very fast and the interview had a lot of questions related to your personal experiences when dealing with difficult parents and children. It is quite easy to discuss if you have experience.
