    I worked at Kids ‘R’ Kids full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The kids I worked with were awesome!

    Cons

    Whoever was doing payroll decided they weren't going to take income taxes out of my check and I was stuck paying them back this year, when I decided to go to my boss about it she asked me why I was claiming so and so amount on my W-4.
    They never had enough teachers to fill in for when another teacher was sick so sometimes I was left over ratio.
    Too much gossiping between the bosses and the girls who worked in the front. Your business will be told to EVERYONE!

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to give.
