      Management can be disrespectful at times

      Advice to Management

      Learn, that you should give your veterans first choice of earning a higher position in the company before passing them over without a second thought. They deserve chances just as much as everyone else.

      I worked at Champions full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The meetings are informative and have gotten better in terms of what they want teachers to know.

      Cons

      The hours are horrible. All the new employee don't fit seniority and therefore, don't get enough hours to even work 25 hours per week. The management is terrible. The male regional director is a liar and the site directors control the regional director. The site director comes off as nice at first but most of them are fake. Dealing with parents, site directors, and the regional director is not worth this job. There is...

      Stop letting the female site directors control you and do your job.

        I have been working at Champions full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Building relationships with the family and school staff.

        Cons

        Average 1 manager a yr, pay, hiring new staff at $3.00 an hr more, All they care about is their bonus and. They have no concerns for kids enrolled but sure do want the money. No room to grow. Hiring managers that have never worked with children before and no experience also teachers are being cattled in with no experience

        Advice to Management

        Listen to your staff especially when they have concerns and complaints.

        I have been working at Champions part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Split-Shift; Curriculum set but flexible; Great Health Benefits

        Cons

        Job description is not adequate and needs to be expanded. Training is inconsistent, needs a checklist to assess competency to move on with the position.

        Advice to Management

        Focus a little more on training aspects to be site coordinator along with clear standards for the site teachers. They say we are not a daycare program but that is not always articulated in the curriculum, which sometimes feels like busy work for the kids; and the assistants stand back and watch the kids from a far because they are not taught how to interact with the kids.

        I worked at Champions full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Routine, yet engaging work, corporate program so there is money for supplies. Can make your center your own personalized community and culture.

        Cons

        I know there has been a shift in management since my employment. Support from supervisors can be hit/miss. So can coworkers or those that directors have to supervise. Seems like they aren't too picky with who they hire if they have the minimal credentials. Can be disorganized. A lot of pressure on directors to solve issues/complaints from parents that lay with upper management because parents interact with the directors...

        Advice to Management

        Work out billing/upper management issues so parents aren't frustrated with the program and frustrated with the site staff that have nothing to do with upper-management shortcomings.
