Bike Instructor in Pointe-Claire, QC
on 17 March 2020
No Hours and Bad Location
Location was not adequate for the activities we were asked to do with the kids and their bikes Did not fulfill their 40hrs/week as promised and no one was working by mid-summer

Poor organisation and management
The schedules are often messy and only the same people get hours while others are left aside for most of the summer. 40 hour weeks were only guaranteed to the same people every time, and the rest often got low hours. Did not give the promised COVID bonus, no referral bonus, got paid minimum wage, which is around 1$ lower than advertised, none of the promised benefits were given. Working with kids is fun but also extremely exhausting mentally and physically, so getting paid minimum wage for it is very disappointing. I do no recommend working here for anyone that's expecting a consistent hours and pay.

Fun but demanding and difficult, limited hours and support, inadequate pay for job
It's somewhat like a summer camp, though definitely my most intense job with kids. Ultimately, you have a lot of responsibility handling a group of 2-6 kids and teaching them bike skills in crowded parking lots. It can be frustrating since it is an ambitious camp - to teach bike skills, from getting off training wheels (roughly half of registration) to hand signals and road riding. It is priced accordingly (close to 500 for all-day weeks) and yet you're paid minimum wage. Beyond that, hours aren't guaranteed, meaning you have a very real chance of spending several weeks at home come August. Other staff have usually been great, and my coworkers have gotten stronger and stronger each year. Bosses have mostly been great. Unfortunately, the rules often feel set up in a way that are hard on instructors. It is disorganized, and I know several returning instructors who were recommended for supervisor/site manager and forgotten about due to the company's disorganized nature. It's a very fun job, but it just feels really demanding and like your hard work is lining someone else's pockets.

lots of work, little reward
corporate is a disorganized mess with very poor scheduling and communication processes. I received multiple training dates from my manager and the office which left me confused. Training itself does not even begin to prepare you for the reality of the job. Parents have high expectations and you are basically left to fend for yourself.

Fun work environment with others
Each day consists of gathering your attendance sheet for the class you will be teaching. Preparation for each day is extremely crucial as you are teaching them a skill. The culture is all in all fantastic because you really bond with the people you work with and work around. The hardest part is most likely teaching a life skill but it is definitely rewarding seeing the kids ride a bike on their own.
