Please, by all means, don't apply for any teaching-related positions here!
Associate Teacher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 25, 2016
This company makes it clear that you don't have a contract, but it's "at will" employment. So, there's no job security. First off, when you apply, there are 4-5 rounds before you're given a job offer. Second, when I started training, we were supposed to have two and a half weeks to be trained before going into the classroom. Be prepared to receive feedback for how fast you can use their scripted curriculum on children and parents. They berate the kids and train them to be robots. You receive a lot of feedback that if you don't gain all the skills necessary during the training, you will be fired. So, I got fired after one week of training before working at the school because they said I didn't make any improvement and didn't seem confident, yet I went through 4 interviews before receiving a job offer, really? Plus, my laptop was taken back as well. They also like to hire new college grads, which makes this job even more suspicious. Most don't even have any teaching background along with staff that currently work there. Don't count on this job if you hope to be an educator. You will get fired at some point. By the way, the CEO is only money hungry with no education background whatsoever. Don't believe the lies that the employer tells you.
Bad management, company philosophy, politics, no job security
