H.E.A.T Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJune 26, 2018
Management is very unforgiving and they play favorites. The team is great but management is very unstable and unsure of the companies future. Opportunity to advance do not exist.

Head Start Lead Teacher (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTApril 2, 2018
Head Start teachers at UCA get paid more than a lot of other preschool teachers (but still not much). Long story short I worked there for two years and had horrible experiences with supervisors and how they handle things. There is high turnover, poor management, high stress/workloads, and poor communication, and it is always understaffed. I only got 2 days PTO for the whole school year and you don’t get paid for summers off or holidays (but school is out anyway). They have a great mission and a lot of people have good intentions but they hire a lot of unqualified teachers and supervisors that can make working there unbearable. Because they are understaffed you often are covering two positions without more pay or help. They also don’t train you for the job adequately or effieciently. If the mission means a lot to you, and you think the low pay and poor management is worth it- good luck.
Pros
Positive mission, health benefits, decent pay for a preschool teacher
Cons
Poor management, high turnover, understaffed, stressful

Stressed and Cutthroat!
Weatherization employee (Current Employee) –  SLC, UtahMarch 2, 2018
The agency - Head Start boasts it is defeating poverty, but they pay thier employees not much above poverty. Yes you do get every holiday under the sun, but it comes at a price. They don't pay much.
The managers are back stabbers - hypocrits.. Simply put your walking on egg shells.
Look else where and keep looking.

Head Start is a fun place to work I love helping the children become successful.
Participate in Home Visits and Parents Teacher (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 24, 2017
Head Start is a fun place to work because I get to help children learn wonderful skills that will help them to excel as they begin their school years. I feel like head start is very important to children because learning begins in the early years. They are so much more prepared for kindergarten after the time they spend in head start.
Pros
ready for kindergarten
Cons
not enough time
