Starting pay $9 .50 increase after taking dcf training even though I'm one class away from my B.A. in ECE?! I've workes as a teacher's assistant and as a head teacher so I have experience, but that didn't matter. The hardest group is the kindergarden class, there are about 25 children that one teacher is responsible for with the help of a couple fourth graders. The fourth graders are ok but it makes more work for the counselor to supervise 25 children in addition to them. The activities to entertain the children are sort of wack (puzzles, coloring, etc). We are required to wear uniforms, which are ugly (look like a Target employee). I didn't set up direct deposit so they were to mail my check and they didn't. I waited two days before calling the office to inquire, it was sitting there the whole time. After picking up my check it wasn't able to be cashed it was printed wrong (another employee had the same issue).
The hours are ok, but when hired I was told that there would be an oppurtunity and was never offered AM shift hours.
Only suitable for retired, extra income seekers, people trying to get experience in the education field.
