    I enjoy working at Primrose. I have been there over 3 years now and I know mostly all the parents and have a great relationship with management, teachers, parents and teachers.

    I share my classroom with a Pre-K class. As much as I love working with the Pre-K teacher, It can become challenging throughout the day in teaching some areas.

    I worked at Primrose School full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Curriculum is fantastic and easy to follow, schools are beautiful and corporate concepts are very inviting and rewarding

    Cons

    pay-depending on franchise owner
    popularity is more important than work ethic
    if your school is understaffed you will never be in the classroom that you are assigned to

    Advice to Management

    always use constructive criticism, be equal to everyone and when it comes to rewarding your staff be fair!

    Pros

    Fun pace to work, great environment, like a family and you get to build strong relationships with children who attend

    Cons

    Management was sub par, very clique-y and gossipy, hire lots of employees fresh out of high school so sometimes you had to pick up their slack

    I worked at Primrose School full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The chance to get to work with kids is fantastic.
    That's really about the only pro that I could even note.

    Cons

    I worked there for a short amount of time in the Farragut location. It was very low pay when the company makes a great amount of money per child. I was sick at work throwing up with the stomach virus and they would not let me leave because ratio would be thrown off. I had never less of a human being any other time. They do not care about their employees at all. The turn over rate shows it greatly.

    Advice to Management

    Act like you are a decent person and can be considerate towards others

    I have been working at Primrose School full-time

    Pros

    Great if you're a parent or child, not super great if you are staff. Great school though.

    Cons

    No benefits and not many opportunities to advance or grow within the company/school.
