Rainbow has a typical corporate mentality. It's all about maintaining the salaries at the top and less about support for managers, teachers, parents, and even the children. My experience was gut wrenching. I loved my children, families, and co-workers; but, this was discouraged, as we were told that we were too close to each other and to our kids and families. We would get in trouble for working overtime, yet to leave on time would often leave our rooms out of ratio ( which employees sign documents stating we would never do). Teachers are severely underpaid and provided with "benefits" that are unaffordable; yet are bogged down with paperwork and overcrowded classrooms. I had the "honor" of having worked for 2 different daycares that were both bought out by Rainbow; and, they proved TWICE that they make empty promises to employees, if not out-and-out lie. Managers are severely overworked, thus can't adequately support their staff. This leaves the staff extremely frustrated. Staff cannot afford to have their own kids at the daycare where they work because the cost is too high compared to the meager amount of pay they make. Additionally, the curriculum it "fluffy" and lacks substantive learning. I would not recommend that anyone who truly loves working with kids go to work for this company!

It's a 90 WORK days period. Weekends are not included in those 90 days. And you have to work the day before and after said holiday, unless you are scheduled off. If you request any of those 2 days off it voids your holiday pay. And the holiday pay you do get is based upon the average number of hours you work the week- month before the holiday.

No. They dislike that you know your information about childcare so they don't have to compete

If you leave on good terms you may be rehired. If you are fired for any reason they are not supposed to rehire you, but if the center is desperate enough they will take back anybody willing to come back.
