    worked for 10+ years ,couldn't count on corp.to treat me as I should have been,no respect.VP hired DM's who did trust me

    Assistant Director (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC (US)

    ProsI liked my coworkers and respected my director because she made my work worth while and educational.

    ConsWe did not have good benefits, limited vacation time( could only grow to 3 weeks a year even after 10 years.) Freeze on raises for 3 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was employed for 10+ years and in my 10th year our director died from cancer and no corporate personnel came to the memorial service. They awarded her an award, after she died but the new director who they hired( not a prior CNI employee,) was the person who received that award and she never had met our director and friend who died. I think corp. should have had a representative who knew her and loved her there to receive the award.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    SOMEONE NEEDS TO CHECK ON THIS CENTER

    Teacher (Former Employee) Garner, NC (US)

    Proschildren are the only good thing!

    Consmean, belligerent, just not a nice person and that is the DIRECTOR!
    when they took over all the original staff was treated so badly they left.
    Many parents voiced opinions and were told there's the door...many daycare's in Garner to choose from.
    Go through teachers like mad! 7 toddler/waddler teachers in a MONTH!
    Children are numbers to most of the staff and definitely the front office.
    Pay is minimal too...go by "paper" certification not longevity. Did not keep word from the buyout.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate needs to really look into this center and NOT go my the directors "account of what is happening". Teachers are NOT just numbers.We are there to help and educate the young minds of children...can't do that if they get rid of the good ones and the ones left are looking for new jobs! Very racist as well: all the white teachers were gone within 3 months!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management want employees to come to work sick, exposing the children

    Teacher (Former Employee) Conyers, GA (US)

    ProsI was hired the next week after my credentials checked out

    ConsI was not allowed to call in sick or I would loose my job. I was on 90 day probation and was threatened that I would be fired if I called in sick. So I went to work sick, made a mistake and was discharged. Either way I would have been fired for calling in sick. Management wants employees to come in to work around children, even if they have cough, fever, congestion and diarrhea

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to allow employees to call off if they are sick. Children and parents should not be exposed to staff that are sick and contagious. Management said she has never called off even when she had diarrhea in her car, but she didn't care about the children because she knew she was sick and exposed herself to the children. That is not good managment

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Former Teacher, Very Displeased

    Assistant (Former Employee)

    Prosworking with kids; isn't that why anyone would want to work in childcare?

    Consteachers not respected by management
    many teachers allowed to get away with breaking rules
    new teachers are lucky if they last; they either get let go or they get run off by rude and downright mean coworkers and directors
    low pay, no real opportunities for advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe patient with newer teachers and train them
    don't believe gossip from disgruntled favorites who've worked there a long time
    understand that teachers have family and life issues and need time off, etc.
    check more often to see what's really going on with teachers and kids. How are the long term teachers getting away with being so hateful and the perfectly decent teachers are getting bad evaluations?

    Growing company that is now the 4th largest child care company in the nation.

    Management (Current Employee) Columbus, GA (US)

    ProsGrowing company with a focus on the care and education of children from infants to school age children. Each location has the opportunity to impact many children who would not typically have access to a quality preschool environment. Many of the staff have been with the company for many years.

    ConsQuality of each program comes back to the managment and staff at each facility. There are many fantastic schools out there with extremely dedicated staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Beware

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking with the children and parents. Health benefits were decent.

    ConsManagement. Pay. District Manager was/is racists.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest for corporate to listen to their employees that work at the bottom of the chain. The people they hire don't always do what they are suppose to do. The teachers are not lying when they something is going on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Made me hate my job :/

    Lead Teacher (Former Employee) Arlington, TX (US)

    Prosweekends off... sometimes, was able to work with children on a daily basis, easy clock in procedure

    Consno flexibility, poor management, only 15 minutes to clean and close at the end of the night, existing employees wouldnt speak to new workers, no communication, screaming and yelling often, child to teacher ratio very high, i had 20 kids by myself, low pay, babies always crying, staff in trouble for things they were never notified of.

    Advice to Senior Managementcommunicate with staff without yelling, provide tour of facility at time of interview or hire

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
