Difficult yet satifying
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), PhiladelphiaJuly 2, 2014
Pros: pays well, friendly and helpful managment, pick your own scedule
Cons: flucuating rate of assignments
You have to wake up extra early and respond often, and its no guarantee to get an assignment. That being said, I've learned diligence and punctuality. Staff are friendly and helpful the majority of the time, and I enjoy teaching a new set of students almost every time I'm called in.

Assignments to different headstarts with different procedures.
Substitute Teacher Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TxNovember 4, 2013
A typical day would be assisting the lead teacher with the specific duties of the classroom. Engage with children in the classroom during daily activities. I learn that children are eager to learn when starting at a young age. Management is always pleased to have me as a helping hand. The co-workers are very nice about asking any questions I might have – more... regarding the classroom expectations. The hardest part is knowing that those kids that I inspired within one day might not ever see me again. The most enjoyable part of the job is having the opportunity to be around some of the smartest kids. – less

Pros: usually free lunch, new people and places
Cons: no benefits unless you are fortunate to work at least 35 hours a week consistantly, or paid time off, like sick leave or holiday pay
I enjoy my job here because I get to travel around and I experience different methods of teaching and curriculum.
It is interesting to see the different facilities and how they are set up.
Every where I have gone the people have been very pleasant, cooperative, and informative.

I especially like my assignment supervisors they are very pleasant, helpful. – more... The best part of my job is visiting new places, meeting new children, and teachers.
Hardest part is in summer time when work slows down . – less

Not a good place for anyone
assistant (Former Employee), californiaAugust 4, 2013
PROS none
CONS a call from a this lady who is extremely rude every morning at 6:00 am.

You have to be careful with this job. The contract clearly states that YOU CANNOT WORK IN A SITE YOU WERE SENT TO OR NOT AFTER A YEAR OF EMPLOYMENT WITH CCC. If you are seeking to be a teacher or assistant this will mess you up. CCCs customers are so many that your – more... chances become slim. I messed up my career dont mess up yours. – less

Teacher, Oakland, Berkeley, and Emeryville (Former Employee), Hayward, CAMarch 14, 2013
Pros: going to different schools and learning what the schools believe.
Cons: never knowing where i would be subing
Travel all over the Bay area, substituting at different preschools.
I learn how a Montessori school is run. Management were friendly. All the teachers for the most part were helpful, as to what were my jobs. The hardest part was finding parking. I enjoyed helping children learn from different diversities. And meeting new people.

Misleading!
Teacher Aid (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAFebruary 2, 2013
Pros: a good place to start or if you have a limited schedule
Cons: low pay, few to no hours
CCC is very misleading with just about everything. I got lot's of assignments when I first began but that came to an end three months later when I stopped getting called. Since this was my only job I ended up filing for unemployment which they gave me a very hard time about. Turns out that I later find out that many of the schools stopped using their – more... services so that is why I never got called again. I was able to work all day and willing to drive far to jobs but yet they would only give me jobs very close to home. Sometimes I would be on my way to an assignment and get a call at the last minute saying it had been cancelled. I felt that this place is run by a bunch of college frat girls who all are rude. When you needed time off they would give you a hard time even though I went for days without them calling with an assignment. Also if a school that you subbed for wanted to hire you they would have to pay some kind of contract fee or you couldn't be hired for a year since you last subbed for them. Their promise of jobs everyday is wrong. The best thing you can do is to put yourself on sub list at various schools on you own. I love children but this place is not the way to go. – less

Wonderful agency for those who love children.
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 16, 2012
The challenging part of my job was language. Although I am able to speak spanish, I needed to brush up more on my vocabulary skills in order to communicate with most of the parents.

The most enjoyable part of the job were the children and other employees.

Horrible place to work for!
Substitute Teacher and Site Supervisor (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 14, 2012
Pros: it's a job while you're looking for something better, good stepping stone to get experience
Cons: ccc is misleading, can offer high pay but few assignments
They will sell you very well when interviewing but if you are paid higher than the average teacher, beware. I was on on the higher end, with years of experience, a BA in Child Development and a Site Supervisor permit. Assignments came frequently in the beginning of my employment with CCC but soon that came to an end. Also, when you need time off or – more... are not going to be available to sub, it will be held against you. I received emails and phone calls dispite calling ahead and informing CCC that I wouldn't be available on a certain day. They advertise that they have work in San Diego, but truth is most of the work is located in Vista/San Marcos. YEs, I drove 45 minutes one way and an hr or more sometimes roundtrip for assignments. Some teachers will treat you like scum, while others are lazy and expect you to pick up their slack, and some are nice and welcoming. Bottomline, employment with CCC should only be viewed as a stepping stone. – less

Substitute Teacher's Aide (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 7, 2012
Pros: working with children
Cons: driving distance
It was a pleasure to wake up everyday and know that I would be working with children. As an aspiring daycare/youth center owner, being with young children gave me great joy but the only downside was driving long distances to get to work.

Substitute (Current Employee), Irving, TXJune 23, 2012
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: last minute contacting
I will typically work at one location for about a week and in that time I learn the routine of the staff at the school or daycare. The hardest part of the job is having to adjust to the different rules and expectations of the schools or daycares.

Productive and fun workplace - interacting with diverse people everyday.
Teacher /Recruiter (Former Employee), Hayward, ONApril 25, 2012
Pros: free air travelling to other company offices
It was a result oriented, self-paced and independent job. There was no boss sitting in the office but the daily dairies and reports were maintained and weekly reports were sent to the corporate office. My supervisor was very understanding and pleased with my work. I started from the lowest level and reached to the top. I enjoyed meeting with people, – more... travelling to the several offices of the company in different cities and states. All my co workers were reliable and coperative. – less
