Underpaid, and too much responsibility. No training, thrown into it without even being told the rules. The kids parents would just drop them off without even making eye contact with a staff member. On my own, too many kids for my comfort level. 2 hour shifts. Not allowed to call out. Required to be there even in severe weather, which is actually a dangerous liability for the employee because commutes to work are not covered by the employer in the case of an emergency, no matter what 'policy' is. The pay barely paid for my gas to get there and the management would sometimes remove my scheduled shifts without notice. It was not a fair relationship: I provided services for them but they did not provide for me. Maybe this is good for someone with a pension or who is working towards retirement, or a student on their breaks who can be nonchalant about making money but if you're looking for a job that pays for your living needs, look elsewhere.
laughable compensation - peanuts
