Dont work here
Supervisor (Former Employee), Baraboo, WIJuly 1, 2014
You are on call your only days off, with 30 min to arrive to work from the minute you get called in.
You either get no breaks or are on break for 6 of your 8 hour shift
benefits are only for full time employees, which no one except the director is considered one.
Boss does not take availability into consideration
high turnover rate

This is not Kids Quest associated with the casinos
Preschool Teacher (Former Employee), Biloxi, MSApril 23, 2014
Cons: everything
This should not even be called a business. Management is horrible. They try to get underpaid and overworked employees to run the business. They expect too much work out of their employees without extra pay. I would work tons of overtime and they would try not to pay me for it. It is unorganized and does not abide by health department standards. They – more... adjust time in the computer for employees so their hours are less than what they truly work. DO NOT work here. They are liars and thieves. – less

No....just no.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NevadaOctober 2, 2013
Pros: none.
Cons: everything.
This place was hectic and ridiculous. I was promoted to management after 3 months of employment and stayed in that position for the remainder of the year I was there. The corporate office does not back their workers or their policies. Whatever the customer wants, even if it completely defies what a policy states, the customer will get. You'll have to – more... deal with parents yelling at you about late fees that you are not supposed to take off. They'll go call corporate, and then corporate will yell at you for not taking it off. Even though you are told from day one of front desk training that you are, by no means as a teammate, allowed to take a late fee off. You are required to, at times, watch 20+ kids alone if there are only 2 people on clock. This place just has an entire list of cons I could name. It's awful to work here. I was miserable. Stay away at all costs! – less

Working at daycares
Teammate (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVApril 23, 2013
Pros: discounts on retail and snacks
Cons: gossip
Everything was pretty self explanatory with the work done. Mostly cleaning, taking care of kids, making sure customers are satisfied with the proper care given to their kids. The management was good at times mostly better with the director instead of supervisors. The hardest part was when most staffs were not doing what was suppose to be done and leaving – more... it to others. Meeting new people was the best part getting to make friends and talk to customers. – less

not the best working environment
teammate (Former Employee), Avi casino laughlin nevadaApril 19, 2013
Pros: job itself is fun
Cons: the staff at the laughlin location are rude and disrespectful.
I worked at the Kids Quest in Laughlin Nevada and was not treated well by the director or the other staff. One staff member in particular made it her job to harass me daily. I complained to the boss and nothing was done. I was recognized by the corporate office for providing excellent customer service and after that the director became unfriendly and – more... downright rude to me. The other kids quests are way better to work for. oh yeah i was written up for taking too long to give a tour but the lady I gave a tour to was from another country and had many questions and didnt understand why parents would just leave their kids there. good job kids quest. The job itself was fun I loved the kids and it allowed me to be a kid agian. Hopefully they have a better staff of caregivers and they got rid of the girl with the snotty and harassive attitude. – less

Assistant Director (Former Employee), Henderson, NVFebruary 26, 2013
Pros: working with great people
Cons: getting yelled by parents that were drunk
Kids Quest was the first company I worked for when I moved to Las Vegas in 1998. I really enjoyed all the activities we did and became very close with alot of the parents and children. This was another place where I also moved my way up very fast from a teammate to an asst director.

The best part was the kids!
Cash Handler (Former Employee), Kansas City, MODecember 17, 2012
Pros: free drinks, flexible hours, many breaks
Cons: no full-time offered which means no benefits
I absoultely loved spending my days and nights enteracting with the children as well as the parents of Kids Quest. However, the scheduling and managment was not the best. There were too many chiefs telling everyone what needed to be done but not enough indians. I was treated like a supervisor but did not get paid as one. The hardest part of the job – more... was keeping all of managment happy at once. Like I said I enjoyed the children and getting to know the parents while checking them in and out. – less
