      They pay for CDA It's easy to take days off for work/life balance


      Constantly short staffed Sometimes it can take an hour or more to get a bathroom break so your bladder hurts Management plays favoritism A 'director' has a baby in the infant room and spends a lot of time in the infant room rather than doing their job. Management constantly lies During my interview the director constantly said they were transparent, turns out they aren't The team lead shouldn't be working with kids The 'director' 99% of the time will only give breaks to the teachers in the infant room because their child is in there When you ask for supplies the classroom needs (cleaning, paper towels, etc) the team lead will forget to bring it and hours later you have to remind her If you need supplies for activities and request them, it takes months before you get them, and you have to remind management It's so stressful to work there because management is unorganized and forgetful Staff can get away with showing up 15-30minutes late to work or from break consistently without consequences Management is so desperate to keep teachers that they will 'look-the-other-way' when someone does something wrong Teachers are hired with ZERO experience with infants, toddlers, and kids - example: a teacher is in the infant room has NEVER changed a diaper or even held a baby. There's only one bathroom for all staff and you often have to wait 10 plus minutes to use it

      We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We’re sorry to hear the level of support you had received from management. It is important to us that our employees feel they have the support they need to be successful in their role. Thanks again for sharing your perspective.

        Flexible schedule and weekends off.


        Can't get sick for the first year i got sick once and had a doctors excuse, still got a written warning. Also they make you do alot of work for minimum wage.They also have favoritism with teachers some teachers will get away with alot of stuff. but the new teachers cant mess up once.

      Executive Administrative Assistant

      Hello, Please be kind. I’m so out of the loop and beat down, and may have posted this in a wrong group. I have been at my job 11 years, applied for a new job out of my organization. Posting closed last Mon. Tues at 4:40 they emailed to request an interview and wanted my top days/times for upcoming M-W. I responded with pref Wed afternoon as 1, Tues early or late as 2 or 3. I have not heard a response. I have to figure out an excuse to go on Tues to leave work. Is this normal to keep hanging on?

      hi , I’m new here 👋 I have an interview coming up and I’m struggling on how to answer the “tell me about yourself statement question.” I personally don’t like to talk about myself and have the tendency to start talking about me but then I end up talking about what’s on my resume 🤦‍♀️ any advice ?

      Hi, I applied for a job at a small business warehouse and I had a phone call with them about 1.5 weeks ago. It went well and a few days after, I got an email asking me when can I do an in person interview. I replied the following business day and gave them three dates. However, it’s been 4 days and they have not responded back to my email response. I even sent them a follow up and nothing. What does this mean and what should I do?
