This company is not LGBT friendly; they allow staff to bully children based on gender, orientation, and presentation. They violate religious freedom laws, labor laws, HIPPA, and OSHA laws. Full time staff often abuse services in their buildings and punish children needlessly for sport.
Not LGBT friendly, violates laws, toxic environment, low pay

Supervisor (Former Employee) – Selma, AL – August 27, 2015
Very productive work place. I learn how to be a good supervisor. I still keep in touch with my coworkers. The job was not hard, the most enjoyable part of the job was working with the children and seeing them graduate from high school
was an employee (Former Employee) – mt.vernon – May 2, 2014
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. 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.
General Crew Member (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – May 2, 2014
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. The would see if you were a good candidate to work on their work program and which department would be best for you. A typical workday normally occurred on Mondays and Wednesday unless otherwise specified from 330-445 pm or unless they also changed the work hours
Loving company that really knows how to take care of their emloyees.
FIC Counselor (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – August 7, 2013
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 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.
Office Manager//Child Care Worker (Former Employee) – Andalusia, AL – March 2, 2013
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 to in their lives. The most enjoyable was seeing positive outcomes in lives due to the support our team provided.
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 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.
doing the next right thing for all the right reasons
it's the only job that you will ever have to prove you are innocent of an allegation.
