"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."
