    Pros

    there are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    was training. while in training, and working to understand material, trainer accused me of not taking training seriously. this was a personal attack. also, he did this in front of another trainee. i'm glad he showed his true colors before i continued there so i could see how rotten an environment it was. i don't need that. no one does. to be honest, everyone else was friendly, and even he was, until that moment. but because of his actions, i would not recommend anyone to look for a job there. this was in goleta california.

    Advice to Management

    i don't believe management takes advice. that's why they are in management. managers are rotten people, except for 1 in a million. and that's literal.

    Pros

    I love working with the kids and having the same schedule as my kids. They allow you to work independently and have a camera on every bus for additional safety.

    Cons

    Low pay and working in extreme temperatures. There is not much opportunity to make extra money, and very little work is offered in the summer.

    I worked at STA full-time

    Pros

    Definitely a job for those that love kids.

    Cons

    The Manager was a trainer first and never had training to become a manager. Man bashing and a micro-manager. Couldn't disagree with her without getting bashed. Ignored a lot of parent and employee complaints. If she ignores it, eventually it will go away.

    Advice to Management

    Give training on Human Resources and Labor Law to all new managers. Listen to complaints. Review employee turn over rates.

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities, occasional travel, work with a myriad of people, interesting industry

    Accounting and finance is way behind on technology, lots of manual work, more work than the staff can handle
