    I have been working at Clayton YES! part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It works really good with my schedule and the kids are super fun. Most of the parents are really nice. My school is pretty close to where I live, but sometimes I have to drive to a different school. The site coordinator lets us have choices with the kids. So much better than working at a fast food place.

    Cons

    I could really use more shirts. But they're not very strict on jeans. I got a birthday card from them in the mail but it came like three days late.

    Advice to Management

    Come visit us! We had so much fun for the lights on day. It's hard to get up when I have to help with a morning shift, so maybe bring us coffee or something. But everybody is really friendly and my PC is super cool with my schedule.

    I have been working at Clayton YES! full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    split shift incase your kids get sick or you have doctor appointments, free childcare for your kids. That is all!

    Cons

    The company is very unbalanced- they are trying to fix things but mostly what needs to be fixed is management. They are very disorganized and are never on the same page with procedures. I have had many run ins with upper management lying about or "forgetting" they said something about procedures. Typically with the Site Directors we have a "we're family" appeal. But so many people (corporate employees, program specialists, Program Coordinators and Site Directors are quitting, its really sad how far down this company has come. They only care for the interests of the parents/ children ( yes, we are in that business but your employees need to be looked after too... or there will be a high turn over- like what we are struggling with now. The only reason I have stayed is for the free childcare, split hours and off on weekends. I love the kids at my school but it seems year by year it's getting worse for them at Clayton. They are bored! They hate the learning rotations and it makes it harder for the employees working with the kids! They need to relax after school, their poor brains are fried after an 8 hour day. Summer with Clayton is a joke!!! They expect everything from us working it but don't give us the tools needed to actually do what we are being made too do, then blame us for it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and they might stay. Keep the kids relaxed and happy and it might not cause disciplinary issues. If the kids are happy, workers are happy, then the parents are happy... which in turn makes the company happy and successful.

    Flexible hours for someone who doesn't have children or don't want to advance in their career. This company has been around too long to let go.

    Pros

    Working with kids makes each day unique.
    Some days can be really fun, makes time go by fast.
    Gain experience and techniques on how to handle children.
    The pay is good, but it can be better.
    Coworkers are most the time a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Very strict, sometimes ludicrous rules. Makes the kids sad and bored and makes our jobs less fun and engaging.
    Parents, from time to time, can be hassle to deal with.
    Lack of workers will have you sometimes do substitute work at other schools at a lower pay.
    Certain kids can really test your patience, no matter what you do. They will find a way to brake the rules.
    Almost every kid wants free time/play, so they can play and spend time with their friends. But our rules do not allow for free time or free play
    Most kids do not have fun when they cannot play or be with their friends because of rotations, the kids complain to parents, the kids leave the program, and thus, the company loses money.

    Advice to Management

    More freedom! Boys want electronics, girls want to play with their dolls, not just o. Fridays. And us, the workers, want more freedom for the kids, makes out day easier and also more fun for both us and the kids.
