    I have been working at Primrose Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compared to other schools I've worked at, they supply their teachers with everything they need to succeed in the classroom.

    Cons

    Politics in the workplace is always bound to happen when you have that many females in one place.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primrose Schools.

    Interview

    I applied through the Primrose website. I never heard anything from them and I actually had to reach out myself to the owner of the school. They then did respond to me within a day and had an interview set up for a few days later. My first interview was a phone screening which was easy. Then I went back a week later for a follow up interview. I interviewed with 4 total people. They all basically asked me the same questions. I am a certified teacher and they wanted me to start out as an assistant teacher and that is unacceptable for someone who is certified! Because they are certified by the state, you have to be fingerprinted. Because of all that is going on with COVID, it is hard to get an appointment. They were pressuring me to get them done ASAP. I could not get an appointment at any of the locations around me for 3 weeks and wasn't willing to drive a long way. Overall, the whole process was fairly easy, but they were very clickish at the one that I applied to. Another concerning factor is that they do not discipline kids. Instead they use positive redirection/ guidance. Which I understand, and might work for some kids, but to not have any consequences for their actions is crazy. Be aware when you apply here. It is nice that the curriculum is done for you so that you can spend more time getting to know the kids, but the pay and the staff is sometimes not worth it.
