    I have been working at Chinese-American Planning Council part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to experience and grow with children and share moments that almost make it seem like it's worth it...They might buy you or make you a small cake for your birthday (however my director only gets her favorite flavor for every single birthday: double fudged chocolate, unless, you point out you don't like chocolate or your allergic)

    Cons

    Disrespectful people keep they're jobs no matter how it interferes with work and children's emotional state because the union makes it really hard to fire people without evidence or a lot of written complaints. There's a chance this women might finally get removed from a 8page complaint however she's worked there for more than 10years already and the director herself couldn't even get her to corporate 98% of the... time-it shouldn't have taken that long. You work hard but aren't appreciated and before you no it you long to quit, if not for the unprofessionalism then for the suffocating atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Directors Don't be disrespectful because your having a rough day. You want to discuss something then be professional and escort that person to your office instead of making a scene before bringing them to your office and leaving your door open so everyone can be reminded of who's in charge as you raise you voice for everyone to hear, including children or parents that could walk past your office at any time.... Misunderstandings happen all the time but the way to handle it isn't by assuming because 89% of the time you assume wrong. Talk to us like human beings. Also management, if you have employees and the director complaining for years about a certain somebody then make an effort to listen. Your ruining a school because your refusing to open your eyes and actually investigate why you keep hearing this person doesn't like helping out and constantly gives teachers attitude when she goes in to bring the food. Children don't need to be taught how to be polite just so someone can come in and start screaming and giving their home teacher attitude. On painting days or cleaning days (when no children are at school) she is asked if she can come in and help the teachers in the classroom, you know what she should say-no. Instead she says she can work and will help out and all she does is stand around and starts yelling about you got enough people helping and refuses to lift a finger. 9am-3+pm she was there, I left at 3pm and she was still there sitting and chatting it up in Chinese. Yet everyone in the school is aware of how she is and just lets it be to not get in a fight. I had to go all out to make my case and now they have no choice but to pay attention. Don't wait, if your getting information of how people are behaving and working in your schools then don't ignore it because it does matter. Your loosing me and half the teachers in the school and I'm pretty sure that's because of how you choose to run the school, union and system. The students deserve the best and you only seem to care about not having to go through the hassle of hiring new teachers and cafeteria ladies; my advise, get your priorities straight.
