    I have been working at HAMADEH EDUCATIONAL SERVICES full-time (More than 3 years)

    Great working environment with a lot of growth opportunities. Great learning programs for students especially the ESL program. They offer incentive programs for people who are going back to school like myself.

    Cons

    Last minute changes can be difficult when there is a schedule that you have been following.

    Advice to Management

    Update staff ahead of time when changing schedules, other than that I love HES keep doing what you are doing for our students and community!

    I have been working at HAMADEH EDUCATIONAL SERVICES full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The professional development is great! I was able to have my certificate renewed without taking any additional classes. There are a lot of resources available for the classroom and students. Everyone is willing to help and the work environment is so supportive and friendly.

    Cons

    The system is a bit outdated, in regards to paperwork, punching in and out, time off, things can be more organized when it comes to events for the school instead of waiting and switching things last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Move towards a modernized system for attendance and communication. Besides that, keep doing what your doing what your doing it's wonderful, I am so happy to be on this team!

    I have been working at HAMADEH EDUCATIONAL SERVICES full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been employed here for roughly over a year and am appreciative of all the support that is offered by leadership and colleagues. No school other school comes close when it comes professional development, state of the art technology and care for the best interest of its students. I wish I had known about HES when I first certified as a teacher. Under 2 years employment and already feel like part of a big family.

    Cons

    The schedule adjustment is a little different from a traditional schools, however fridays are half day. Time clock is a bit annoying and wished it wasn't such a far walk from my classroom.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the annoying hand scanners for clicking in.

    Actually a really bad place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time serving students and less time putting lipstick on your awful image.

    I worked at HAMADEH EDUCATIONAL SERVICES full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved working with the families.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork. Often had to stop in the middle of a lesson if a supervisor walked in with a form that needed completing. Was in charge of paperwork that typically isn't delegated to teaching staff.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure required paperwork requirements to allow more time for teaching and planning.

    Pros

    Great support structure and great work climate.

    There are no Cons of significance to mention about the company or organization. Commitment is expected and if one is not of that nature, then it's is not suitable for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work that is done on a daily basis. Managment is organized and lazor focused, so there is not much advice to provide.
