mediocre at best
Part-time Teacher (Former Employee) –  Douglasville, GAAugust 10, 2015
working at sheltering arms is an ok job if you are fine with dealing with a lot of workplace drama. the management does not care for their teacher and the center director can come off as chauvinistic. the pay is terrible along with the benefits.

Friendly learning enviroment, caters to childern and families
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Douglasville, GAJuly 6, 2015
A typical day at work is fun and fast pace. Working for Sheltering Arms, you will never have a dull moment.
I've had so much types of training from CPR, Fire and Safety, Bright from The Start, Read Right from The Start, etc.
The management team is pretty good, there are some defaults, but it's not major.
My co-workers are amazing, fun loving and helpful. They make the day go by so fast and they all treat the children, parents, and management team the same.
The hardest part of the job is having full participation from parents on different activities, but we still have to consider that not everyone has the same income.
The most enjoyable part of my job is making life long connections with each student and parent. Having a child run up to you and give you the biggest hug then immediately want to tell you everything that has happened to them makes your heart melt. The child trusts you and feels comfortable enough. I love that feeling.
Pros
Benifits, Lunch, Positive atmosphere
Cons
Wages

MST- SA Therapist (Former Employee) –  Queens, NYJune 17, 2015
Great Job, however it is underpaid for the work that is required. Management is supportive to growth with certain people.The most difficult part of the job is balancing the the treatment model, with agency requirements. There is a lot of travel in this job and sometimes can be one of the most difficult aspects of the job
