Pros: free lunches
Cons: scheduling, hours, pay, short breaks
I have worked in childcare for many years and this was by far one of the worst places I've worked. You have no set schedule, just a time to come in and you leave when either ratio is down or they have someone come in and cover for you. It was impossible to make plans or have a life outside of work. I enjoyed working with SOME of the children, but most of the time it was impossible to get any activities done because the children were constantly being shifted to other classrooms to bring down ratio.
The classrooms were dirty and not sanitized properly leading to illness spread. Most of the artwork on the walls were old and faded.
The management was accommodating to the staff, but had no idea how to run an effective business. Instead of hiring more staff to keep things running smooth, they over worked and shifted the teachers they had. The pay was above minimum but not fantastic for all the the job entailed.
I would never work there again.
