Lack of support from management, causing high turnover rates and unhappy employees. Long days and weeks, sometimes without breaks. Also, you have to work a lot of holidays including the day after Christmas as well as Christmas Eve. Sick policies are also not respected by parents nor management so teachers are frequently getting sick and having to miss days, which unjustly makes management angry.
Keeping ratios when teachers are not available or call in sick.
Most stressful would be corporate demands. Rules changing with little notice. But it is a good company to work for.
Everything. High turnover rates, no help from administration, maximum capacity classrooms, not enough employees, no regulated break schedules, no consistency in any area, no one in administration follows policy...any of them.
You do not feel appreciated here to be honest. Holidays are nothing to them, and they make u work the day after Christmas! No retirement, no chance of moving up the ladder in the company, low pay, high turnover, dealing with people that dont do their jobs correctly & a simple lack of support from management.
Nothing. You always continue to learn and grow. It’s truthfully an amazing company.

Not getting high enough pay. The company offers large sign-on bonuses, but they never give bonuses to employees. They don't ever bother to do anything nice for the employees to take care of them and show appreciation. Christmas parties are bogus and raises are terrible.
Working with the maximum capacity of children by yourself without help, then there are more possibilities to have accidents, you feel frustrated and inapreciated.

High turn over, you have to work with inexperienced co-workers, different people all day and everyday no matter what you think or what you say.
Dealing with difficult parents/difficult employees.
