It was a meetings based environment
Information Technology Specialist (Current Employee), Detroit, MIMarch 27, 2014
Pros: my knowledge expanded
Cons: very expensive insurance
A typical day would be traveling from center to center solving the various networking issues. I learned more about servers and internet based phones. Management held a lot of meetings about day to day operations. The teachers at the centers were excellent and a joy to work with. The hardest part of the job balancing work required and the meetings I – more... had to attend. The most enjoyable part of the job was repairing the systems the children worked with and seeing how happy they were to be able to use it again. – less

Organized company to work for
Lead Teacher (Former Employee), Charleston, SCJanuary 5, 2014
I enjoyed working with this organization. The amount of information I obtained with this company was effective and I am still able to use this information on my current job. Working for Head Start and having this organization take over as the grantee for 4 years was excellent in many ways. We did not, as employees, have to fight with unemployment during – more... the summer breaks...the company took care of all the initial paperwork. I would recommend other educators to work for this company, if opportunity was given. – less

A day of Smile working with young children
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAOctober 22, 2013
My typical day at work was assisting Teacher with daily classroom activities such as; keeping the classroom clean and orderly, singing songs, reading stories, finger play and supervise at mealtime
I also created bulletin boards for children artwork to be display throughout the classroom
The hardest part of the job is the end of the year, watching the – more... young faces of the children leaving ready for kindergarten
The most enjoyable is reading to the children, to see their face and watch them get involved in the story as I read
I love working with my teachers, we always find new things to do in the classroom, no one day was the same but a day of new ideal and new adventure with the children – less

Very straight forward place to work
Head Start employee (Former Employee), Pasadena, CAJuly 23, 2013
Pros: very honest and upfront about their role
Cons: health insurance is a bit pricey if you have a family. it's not bad if you are single however.
Very straight forward place to work. CDI is an interim management company, so employment with them is likely to be for the short term while a new Head Start Grantee is selected.
