KinderCare in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania - Understaffed,very unprofessional and nasty working environment

Friend works there and there is fighting between the staff everyday and nobody gets bathroom breaks or lunch breaks regularly. Hiring disabled that cannot perform regular duties associated with working with children. The staff is unwilling to work together as a team and constantly lets certain staff members leave early everyday and take extended lunch brakes. The director will not stand up for herself or anyone else. Just lets whatever happens happen. Doesn't set a set weekly schedule. The center is understaffed to the point that if one person quits it will have to close. Please someone help because my friend loves working with the kids and would like to make this the job she retires from.

KinderCare is bad like the one in Mundelein Nicole Robin is a lied to us, we had a great time with our public school, our daughter succeeded and we wanted to tell every body KinderCare is not worth money, it is cheap and bad quality like the Director of Mundelein, she is not skilled at all ( she is not from a top university in this country!!) she is not global, does not speak any languages... she is bad..

.Our kindergarten program was wonderful in our public school . We have better teachers. STAY AWAY FROM KINDERCARE, and Nicole Robin who lied to parents!!

.. BAD PROGRAMS, FRAUD..We are from a very famous psychotherapist in this country and we do not recommend KinderCare and NICOLE ROBIN, A LIAR!!

I understand your problem, I am a parent, an educator and writer, I had to deal with KinderCare. we need to tell the truth.

I am writing a book about KinderCare Mundelein how they misled me to have enrolled my bilingual daughter born after September 19. I also complained about KinderCare.

Do not be sad, you will find better. read all the complaints here and you feel relieved.

You are not the only one in this case. Ok?

I had like you an awful experience with my child, she was rejected because she was BILINGUAL.

KinderCare - Directors not giving time off to employees

1.0
Details
It is so sad that first our company does not give a lot of time off to old employees to begin with , then on top of that our stingy director has a hard time approving our time off. She does not approve people's time off. My so much time gets wasted as this director does not give it. Her family comes first , so she shall take it herself and have employees who are not qualified close for her. No one from the corporate office checks why she cannot close.She does not buy supplies for classroom!.We are so frustrated at this center as she shall cut your hours but summer time or christmas time she shall not approve it. Please I want to know if other employees have the same issue.

Every complaint I have here is dead on. I'm a current employee who has invested 11 years to this company.

I'm in the process of leaving and I can't believe I stayed this long. Kindercare is about the money. They don't care about anyone it's a horrible place to work. I can't believe anyone pays this high fee when they could get better care anywhere.

I've given my best to the children and this lousy company and am being treated bad daily. You get yelled at because you have to use the restroom because you have been there 6 hrs already. And don't ask to be off but let them cut your hours if they feel the need. And don't plan s doctor appointment just because you were scheduled off because that changed yesterday.

Parents and potential employees there are not these many complaints because it's a good place and it seems to be everywhere. Things have to change for everyone involved and you as parents are the only ones who can do it.

Demand the best for your kids and the rest will follow. Everyone needs your help!

We do not have issues like this. You can always call employee hotline. Also staff does get adequate time off from corporate.

This location is a complete mess. DON'T DO IT! As a parent, it is the worst possible decision I made towards my child. The staff is horribly trained, and the Director has no clue as to what she is doing. Was she trained? Does she have any credentials? She yells at her...

Kindercare - Director Review from Dallas, Texas

I'm a former employee. If you want your child to have a good experience , learn and be loved and helped. DO NOT take them the kindercare on Kelly blvd. The director is horrible ( Kim Evans ). She doesn't like the kids shes only there for the pay check. She sits at her desk all day and talk on her cell phone. She doesn't do bathroom breaks or anything to help teachers with their classroom or curriculum. She fakes it until she makes it as she say. Plenty of patents have been making complaints but they have not been followed up upon.

Kindercare Director Review

Parent complaints are not taken seriously. My child was in the Hermitage location. The assistance director is clueless and very rude. She is definitely not a people person. We pulled our child out of this location and are much happier now. The staff where we are now are genuinely concerned about my child. None of that fake feeling like at Kindercare.

KinderCare in Detroit, Michigan - Awful Center Director

I am a former employee of KinderCare. When I got hired I had the best center director. She was amazing always helping, making sure you were ok, her and the assistant director made such a great team. Sadly, my CD found a job closer to home so she could spend time with her family. So she left and we got a new CD. She was AWFUL!!!!!!!!!! She was so mean and nasty. She had her favorites, and if she did not like you watch out. She cut my hours so viciously, I went from 7 hours days to 3 hour days. She gave the new girls that just got hired more hours, and I had been there for over 2 years. I ended up transferring, and I got a lot more hours at my new center. I was the fourth person to leave. 2 girls quit, and another transferred just like me. Now I heard most of the staff quit, and that makes me sad. We were such a great team until the evil vicious troll came along. I even tired calling the district manager to tell her how badly she was treating us, and she actually sided with the CD, typical. Bottom line bad company to work for.

You know what? I had a family friend that worked at a KinderCare in Canton OH, and she also said they had a horrrrible director.

Staff infections went around the daycare and my friend was told NOT to tell any parents.

Wow. I wonder if it's just a thing for KinderCare to hire *** management?

DO NOT I repeat DO NOT send your child to KinderCare. They are the worst place, they don't care about your child, they only care about the almighty dollar.

The AD is not allowed to do her own timecard. Right now the company is so worried about the hours and not the kids.

I am no better then someone down the street of I continue shuffling kids to send people home.

Everyone has bills to pay regardless of the title.
