Great Place To Be a Starving Artist
Community Instructor (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – August 30, 2018
I loved the job itself but the management is disorganized and petty. I was paid abysmally low and then expected to work constantly off the clock. When I raised my concerns to management they scheduled me up to the maximum hours they could, but the lack of infrastructure caused me to have to work almost double that at home, or off the clock in general. I would be emailed on my days off asking for lesson plans and then I would be paid for 4 hours of planning time for 10 weeks of classes. They have an incentive program where if you go above and beyond, you get a wooden coin which gets you free swag. Then they make everything ridiculously expensive on the list and give out the coins like they are some sort of lost Egyptian artifact to be prized above all else.
Great to work with the community, happy people, excited children, appreciative parents
short or no breaks, chaotic hours, inconsistant management
