    Pros

    Supervisors that care about me - not just about the bottom line.

    Cons

    Customer service based, if you do not like to speak with people - this is not the place for you.

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well-developed academic programs, continuous training. Previous Center Director was a major problem. The Management got rid of her and it is much better. The current Center Director is competent, professional and caring and it shows. The whole environment is different. I am only leaving because of scheduling.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge is the fact that it is a franchise-so upward mobilty is limited. But they will work with schedules and give you hours.

    Advice to Management

    The changes you made are definitely great. Keep them going.

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The franchise I worked for had friendly staff and directors. There was always work to be done, and money earn from new students almost every week.

    Cons

    The pay was not sufficient at the time I worked there. Preparation is key to success, and some times I felt I was not able to be prepared for a session due to lack of information about a new student.

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Experience with different teaching strategies and teaching in general, building relationships with the kids. This is a good job right out of college when you are searching for a FT position. This is also a good supplement to a FT position. However, you will absolutely not be able to survive on this salary alone. I would equate this job to a paid internship. You learn a lot and it prepares you for your career.

    Cons

    All about the money, do not value employees, low hours, low pay, high turnover, no time to build relationships with coworkers. Example-I worked there for over a year and I was out sick for a month to deal with a very serious health condition, which I communicated to them-no one, not one single person checked on me, and I was fired-although Darryl, the owner, refused to actually say I was fired and spun a whole story about how I was "invited back to reapply" because he did not want to pay unemployment. I was even told by the manager Morgan during one of my head teacher training sessions that Darryl didn't like to pay unemployment. This is ILLEGAL. Luckily, I found a FT school teaching position not even a month later, so I guess it was a blessing in disguise.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees. I honestly think the whole system needs restructuring to avoid the high turnover.

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the kids (most of them wanted to be there)

    Cons

    No benefits, would call to not have me come in because my student wasnt coming, only gave 1.5-3 hour shifts, minimum wage, 5 hours of training videos before teaching a student, 2 weeks notice for any time off, too understaffed to ever get time off, started giving me same kids over and over again (after a week being there, they ga e me all of the difficult kids no one else wanted to work with), test prep teacher get paid more than subject teachers and get longer hour shifts

    Advice to Management

    Learn to cater to and stick up for your employees. Those kids couldn't come to your services without us...
