was an employee (Former Employee), mt.vernon – May 2, 2014
Cons: all of the above
I worked for Bright Start as it transitioned from HappTime to Bright Start.After the transition they got rid of almost all of Happy Time staff and told them they just weren't a good fit lol. But they were good enough to train their own staff that had absolutely no idea how to run such a large daycare and from what I have seen and heard still don't. – more... There are absolutely no pros to working for them unless u are Methodist. There is still Happy Time employees working there that are way more educated then the ones they are hiring and still are making less then the new employees. – less

Pros: pretty cool place to work
Cons: no healthcare a worker who stayed there
As a former resident of United Methodist Children's Home, one of their core beliefs is that the youth their needed structure and job training. one of their things included assisting the youth have work experience.

FIC Counselor (Former Employee), Decatur, GA – August 7, 2013
Pros: paid medical insurance
Cons: not always having a chance to take a lunch break
Greet third shift staff get a report of the nightly events, wake up residents prepare breakfast. Assist residents in dropping of their children to school as well as the residents getting to school. Document as state requires and as the company requires about incidents and accidents that may accure. Supervisors are very helpful and easy to understand. Co-workers – more... communicate very well and work hard together to reach each and every goal that have been set forth by the social worker and case managers. The most difficult thing about this job would be letting go of the residents when its time for them to move on. The most enjoyable thing about this job would be knowing that the young ladys are leaving in a better situation then when they arrived at our facility. – less
Office Manager//Child Care Worker (Former Employee), Andalusia, AL – March 2, 2013
Pros: flexable working hours
I feel very fortunate to have worked with such an outstanding company that put families and children first. This company allowed me to grow in many areas of office management as well as self development. All supervisors were encourageing. The hardest part of this job was the stress of learning the many situations that children and adults were subjected – more... to in their lives. The most enjoyable was seeing positive outcomes in lives due to the support our team provided. – less
This was one of the most self rewarding position I have experienced. I was able to plant positive seeds into their lives.
Foster Parent (Former Employee), Worthington, OH – June 5, 2012
Pros: doing the next right thing for all the right reasons
Cons: it's the only job that you will ever have to prove you are innocent of an allegation.
Children are our future and it is up to all of us to give them a fair chance in this world. Foster parents are needed more than a lot of us truly understand. We are not replacing their parent's ,just showing each child there is a better way to live, or should I say a different way. Foster parents understand the children coming into our homes have issues – more... and until they are addresses they will continue to come up. Children want security, and consistency in there lives, the love will come when you least expect it. – less
