      Easy to get a job here, little experience needed. Okay benefits. Curriculum has been created for toddlers, twos, pre-school, pre-K, and school aged classrooms. Developmentally appropriate practice and content in theory (but not in action)


      VERY Low Pay!!!! Lack of Respect for Employees! Management is not concerned about policies or DCFS guidlines. Generally over ratio! Typically don't get to leave on time. Management Targets Employees High Turn over (Teachers and Children) Teacher are not given time to prepare anything Have curriculum, but NEVER used! Not all employees seem qualified or knowledgeable enough to work with kids. Lack of team work from Cooks to Corporate positions! Lack of confidentiality! EXTREME GOSSIP even within upper management! Work hours per week and not secure.

        Great Health Benefits. 401k plan. sick time. vacation time.


        Got pointed for using sick time you earned. Full time hours were cut-almost losing benefits. It was not easy to take time off. Vacation hours were cut in half. Upper local management was not respectful to teachers-which was the face of the company. Never money for supplies to carry our curriculum.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      United States Postal Service

      I have a supply chain & inventory manager interview coming up for a museum. Can anyone provide me some insight on what questions I should be prepared for? What key points to highlight during my interview? Any tips and advice is appreciated!



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.


      Urban Health Plan

      I interviewed for a position virtually and in person both interviews went well. I sent my Thank you email and never heard back from the department. They were interested in me and asked me to reach back out to them, it’s surprising they never responded to me.
