Don't ask Jeff Cummins for a reference.
teacher (Former Employee) – Vienna, VA – June 24, 2016
I worked there for over 4 years. Rarely called out sick, was always on time, worked well with the students, etc etc. I put my notice in after 4 years. I literally had to hassle the 'manager' (I have seen better managers at McDonald's) for a reference letter....
I had to inquire about it for weeks, even months after I had stopped working there. When I finally got it, it was clear that he half-assed it. The whole HLC thing is a waste of money if you ask me. Parents can find more individualized tutoring out there at a fraction of the cost. AND when working there, they pretty much give groups of students work to do and let them be. It is weak, and after dealing with Jeff, I can see why.
You also have to ask for your own raises.
OH and for sh**'s sake, post the schedule more than 5 days in advance. (beware of James too, he is high on himself and mad that he is stuck there rather than somewhere further in education.)
