    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time

    Pros

    Being directly involved with student improvement. You get to see kids and adults do things they never thought they'd be able to do. Coworkers are usually caring people.

    Cons

    You will still only be guaranteed 30 hours a week. Management varies implementation at different learning centers, but the corporate policies can be enforced so that you have to be available during all of their business hours, which can be from 7am-7pm on weekdays and some varying hours on weekends. The schedule changes week-to-week, so you will never know if you can schedule something in the afternoon or evening.

    For the actual position: You will be expected to oversee students through their programs, manage their behaviors, throw parties, and meet with parents. Depending on the center, you may be over-scheduled, including filling in for other positions, and still expected to fulfill all duties on an hourly rate. They will track your paperwork online and send a report to your manager if your paperwork is not completed in the way they expect.

    Advice to Management

    Stop placing arbitrary limits on the amount of time a Consultant can be scheduled with a student, especially challenge students. Stop over-scheduling Consultants and over-signing students. You will actually save more money if you treat your employees well and decrease turnover.

    Pros

    Changing lives of students, some opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Only advance if you have certain qualities, under qualified people are promoted, people who have been there years are often looked over, pay is very low when compared to job duties, only help kids who have families who are very wealthy

    Pros

    It was a fun environment, and seemed to really support kids and learning

    Cons

    The scheduling system for hours is insane. You are basically expected to save full-time availability, only to find out Friday afternoon of the week before when you will be working (which could be 4 hours in the next week, no hours, or 30 hours). Anyone who has a full-time job had to put in the time of living with that sort of craziness. Was not a viable option for someone who needs to actually pay bills.

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You make a difference you can see everyday you work. Students come in all ages and it's the most fun to see the adults who struggled through high school succeed in college. Easy to learn curriculum and timed teaching means something new everyday.

    Cons

    Part-time work depends on ability of center manager to recruit new students, which may be tough in some markets. Advancement takes place after YEARS of investment.

    Advice to Management

    Groom employees to continue with their own education outside of work hours.

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time

    Pros

    Decent wages (without a college degree)
    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Have to follow their style of teaching pretty strictly (no flexibility on incorporating your teaching style)
    Some of the students you work with come off as very rude and spoiled
    Always have to be pretending to be happy to the point where you can tell you're being very fake
