Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Kindercare full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Friendly co-workers, OK management (I've had worse), and great families.

Cons

They cut hours as soon as the kid count drops, terrible communication skills, (corporate) doesn't seem to care that much about their workers, you have to pull an arm and a leg to get a raise (took me three years). They say one thing and do another, make you pay for your own background check, doesn't keep center buildings up to date. Directors get to go on fun paid vacations and leave the teachers to work their butts off with not extra help.

Advice to Management

Learn communication skills, be there for your employees.

    I have been working at Kindercare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    horrible pay, but the pro in Indiana ou can still qualif for foodstamps, with the hourly wage the pay.

    Cons

    same as above depends on your political view. They also push the limit on how many children are in the classrooms, just because the state gives a max number doesn't mean the school should follow that recommendation, the state doesn't know anything about children. I know each little warm body is a dollar figure, but its not good to have so many children in a classroom!

    Advice to Management

    how about living wages!!!!!!

    I worked at Kindercare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved the kids, love the first center I was in...it was a school and we were able to actually be TEACHERS

    Cons

    if management suspects you will turn them in for violating licensing laws, you WILL be hunted down and fired

    Advice to Management

    They say it's all about the kids, but most employees know that when it comes right down to it, it's about the almighty dollar
