Suggestions for improvement

  • JUST HIGHER SALARIES FOR EMPLOYEES THAT WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE STUDENTS

What I like about the company

OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN EVENTS THAT PROMOTE EARLY CHILD EDUCATION

What I dislike about the company

EMPLOYEE COMPENSATIONS. MY POSITION AS A PARAPROFESSIONAL REQUIRES MORE THEN WHAT WE ARE GETTING PAID FOR. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO LIVE WITH ANY EXTRA

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would not cut staff at my location. My place of work is currently on a hiring freeze and it is making the environment more stressful for all staff and students. Many staff and students now have doubts that students are the number one priority at KRESA because of irresponsible funding for staffing.

What I like about the company

The administrators have a personal and professional relationship with all employees and work case-by-case to meet their needs. There is an overall positive tone at work and most employees are motivated to perform well and work together as a team.

What I dislike about the company

The company does not thoughtfully solve problems with resource allocation. Employee turnover is high in some areas, and most people leave for higher paying jobs.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only thing I would change would be to bridge the communication gap between offsite and on site.

What I like about the company

KRESA is like a family. When my daughter was sick and hospitalized they gave me as much time as I needed off with zero hassle. It’s a caring work environment with a lot of support available.

What I dislike about the company

I wish there was more communication between offsite and on site.
