    I have been working at Music & Arts Center part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The management does a great job getting new students to sign up with you. As soon as you become a teacher, they really do their best to get you students ASAP! Whenever there was any kind of problem, the fellow employees and manager most often did a great job helping to resolve it.

    Cons

    Communication could have been better at times, especially when there was a cancellation on the day of. Most of the time, they left a voicemail if I missed their call, but sometimes I never received anything at all. Also for me personally, I found teaching students back to back, in 30 minute intervals, for several hours, without any breaks to be very draining. Maybe it works for some, but also not for others. There is not much flexibility when it comes to scheduling lessons in a way that works best for you as a teacher.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a nice thing to allow teachers (if they would like) to set up fifteen minute breaks between 2-3 lessons just so teachers can get a little time to refresh before the next set of lessons. That way it can be fair for both teachers and the students, because every student deserves equal amounts of energy and attention from the teachers—and it can be a difficult thing to do when you are trying to give 100% to a new student every half hour for several hours.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Music & Arts Center (Frederick, MD) in February 2014.

    Interview

    They took a while to get back to me. I'm guessing they really wanted someone else and that person rejected them. I wrote them off because I didn't hear from them. After I finally heard from them, I had to re arrange my whole schedule.
