-Less rigid structure than most companies, which can be bad for those who are used to supervision.

    I have been working at Play-Well TEKnologies full-time

    Pros

    Instructors get the opportunity to work directly with kids and a TON of LEGO pieces. If you like working with kids and helping them figure out how the world around them works, then it's a great job. If you're not a huge fan of spending time with elementary school aged children (including putting up with some of their less endearing habits), then it's probably not a great fit.
    Overall, the company (and most managers within it) try to "do good, be happy" which means taking care of each other and doing what they can to be supportive.

    Cons

    Teaching hours aren't terribly flexible-- there's not a lot we can to do change when kids get out of school.
    Working hours can vary from week to week and season to season. Summer's are usually close to full time but during the school year it's more of a 10-15 hour a week part time job.

    Yes, we agree - you definitely have to love kids to work at Play-Well! The joy of seeing that "ah-ha" lightbulb moment in kids is a common theme shared by our Instructors when they talk about why... More

    I worked at Play-Well TEKnologies part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was excellent, flexible hours for students, full time work in the summer and part time during the school year, mostly independent and not micro-managed, tons of training, management truly cares about your success, reprimands are opportunities to learn rather than be punished

    Cons

    After a few years I found the work repetative but I was able to create my own curriculum to help keep things fresh. Some kids are miserable to work with, but that's something you either get better at or you don't.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job. I truly enjoyed my time at this company.
