Fun but not worth the pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Over work and under paid. I enjoyed/loved my job while working at First Academy. However, the pay was not that great, no Heath Insurance, paid time off doesn’t rollover. You cannot accumulate more than 40 hrs. Management would do their best to work around doctor appointments or what not with proper notice. I liked the 4 10hr shifts as well.


Weekends off


Short breaks, no insurance

Pay is trash. The turn over rate is kind of high. Some people end up with more responsibilities than they have experience for. Management was pretty great. Very flexible and understanding. The facilities are nice.


Family like environment, fun field trips, nice staff events


Pay was terrible

No career progression, avoid at all costs!

Awful place to work, ridiculously low wages, stupidly long hours, expected to work weekends, short lunch breaks.There is no career progression. Avoid this place at all costs!

Are not concerned for their staff and employees

The owners are good people but the management staff are not. Poor management of human resources. Do not take care of employees and are not concerned about the well-being of their staff.


teachers are friendly


long hours; only 1 day off; do not give vacations to staff during winter breaks

Productive and fun workplace

A typical day at work would start at 9 finish at 4:30, as repetitive as this got , I learnt a lot there. I've gained the ability to take control of situations in the best of ways possible , when teaching, communication skills were very important , as I was around different children everyday. The management at first academy are a few proffetionals who clearly know what they're doing , they've had the school running for the past 4 years now. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that I got to learn something new everyday , weather it's from the children or my co-workers.


Free lunch

Love working with kids

I loved working with children. The management could have been a little better, and the placement of people needed a little work.

Child care fun

I have mostly worked in child care. I am open to expand to other jobs though. A typical day at work consists of, managing payments, cleaning, educating, and communicating with children, staff, and parents. I have learned mostly how to communicate effectively. Co-workers and management are consistent. The hardest part of my job is when children have behavioral issues. The mot enjoyable part of my day is the love that is shared through out the entire day.
