Charter Schools USA Employee
in Port Saint Lucie, FL

"The atmosphere in the schools are always a little hectic. The staff on the other hand can be great in school and horrible in the rest. I was given 1 school that has a history of an abusive principal, but since she is friends with the owner I was told to stay clear of her. The atmosphere is hostile and abusive and when you don't have the backing of the company because everyone is afraid of the principal you're out of luck. My area director was afraid of her and sat through a hysterical fit she was having with someone in my department as well as yelling at me and all he did was sit there and shake with his head down. *Miles away there is another school where the principal is a lady and the staff smiles, has a good time and the kids learn. Don't expect backing from the company unless you are the screw up because those people scare this company. I was the third person in my position in one year. What does that tell you? Careful where you apply."

"The administration is horrible. Terrible place to work."

What do you like about working at Charter Schools USA?

"Your coworkers are helpful and supportive. You found a teaching job."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be prepared for panel discussions. Prepare a mock lesson that will be given in front of students. 3 interviews in this process."

What don't you like about working at Charter Schools USA?

"The administration is unethical, corrupt, and unprofessional. There is poor treatment for teachers."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Open your eyes and take a look at your poor administration. Do extensive background checks on the people who you allow to lead a school. Chances are if they were fired from another school, they are probably being just as corrupt at one of your schools. Be selective and do not let them hire friends and family to rule the school."

"Terrible"

What do you like about working at Charter Schools USA?

"The only things I liked were my students and my fellow teachers. Inside our little world I was happy, but EVERYTHING else was horrible."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"My only advice to others considering teaching here is... DON'T!"

What don't you like about working at Charter Schools USA?

"Our first principal constantly berated teachers - privately and publicly, and never supported us in front of parents. The second principal while I was there had NO teaching experience outside of subbing, and therefore was absolutely useless. The CEO of the company was no help when teachers complained, instead he forwarded our complaints to the person we were complaining about, thereby making her even harder to deal with.Additionally, we were constantly required to work more and more hours outside of the school day. I don't mind open houses and conferences and the like, but this was probably an event or two every month after our duty hours that was required."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Lift up your employees instead of crushing them constantly, and you might keep them longer than 1-2 years. I spent the entire two years I worked there looking desperately for another job."
