If you were to leave Bright Horizons Family Solutions, what would be the reason?
Low pay for everything that is expected of you.
High turnover but even when you do have the staff you have to place half on call because you can only have so many labor hours used, but then when people call off those staff already have plans, so then the teachers that do show up to work are the ones to suffer and have to work overtime.
favoritism is rampant, yet we are told it's all in our heads
ineffective communication nobody in management is ever on the same page
all these surveys to try to fix the problem, but none of them actually seem to matter
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Bright Horizons Family Solutions?
Be co doesn’t, honest, and clear of your professional goals. ASK QUESTIONS! Ask about the company’s philosophy and mission, work culture, challenges and how they handle them etc.
I had 2 Call interviews for the Nanny/In Home Care Position I answered questions on my past Experience and What would I do Scenarios I was told within 1 hour I wasn't hired..20+ Years working with Children and wasn't Hired..Good Luck Candidates
It took about 2 weeks after applying online to be called for a in person interview. In this interview you at a brief tour of the many classrooms with the children.
Then if you are offered the job, you are given paperwork to complete. The paperwork explains the job and what you need to have done- like medical TB test, background checks, health screen etc. After this theres also online training to be done at home not in the center. Then about 2/3 weeks or so after this online training is when you physically go to the physical training in person at your center. The whole process from hire date to physical training is about 6 weeks. Very long and tedious process but worth it if you truly know why you want to be there.
What would you suggest Bright Horizons Family Solutions management do to prevent others from leaving?
Even though there is a shortage of teachers don't promise new people all the favorite shifts. Staff who have put their time in would like to work these shifts too.
Does anyone know of there is an employee discount for our own kids to attend there? If so how much?
It’s fifty percent off but it depends on your location if your child could actually be at your location some centers have it where it’s a limited to how may staff can bring their kids only because it’s a long process they have to go to to get your account adjusted for deductions and making sure that your child is really your child and all that other stuff but they do allow you to send your child to another center and still get fifty percent off.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Bright Horizons Family Solutions? What are the steps along the way?
After you apply, a recruiter calls you to discuss which age groups you would work best with, then that recruiter sets you up with the center to schedule an interview. After the interview (mine was myself and another candidate answering questions to the Director, Assistant Director, and an Education Coordinator) you are invited to visit the age group you have applied to work with in a working interview. During the working interview, you can do an activity, ask questions, read a book, etc. with the class.
