    Pros

    Lead teacher training was great

    Cons

    Director steals from employees every week

    Advice to Management

    Owners are great and I hope they know or realize that their director in fact does this illegal at this location. This happened to me personally and I have also been told by 5 other teachers that she does this every week and try to get away with it. Every week they pass out hourly sheets with employee hours that have been worked. Apparently, you have to make sure you double check that they are correct because she will go in the adp system and manually change everyone’s hours to try and STEAL from them. This happened to be and I did not sign my sheet because it was incorrect by 30 minutes. I emailed her 3 times about it and no reply. She still paid me what was on the paper. 30 minutes is 30 minutes. I don’t get why she does this or why she hasn’t been “caught”. Yet she pays teachers who don’t do anything over 15$ an hour with their 37+ hours while great teachers are lucky to even get 35 hours. Favoritism to its finest. I’m surprised the owners or the FBI haven’t checked on this situation since it’s illegal.
