Good for experience but not a lifelong career
Program Supervisor, SAC (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 31 May 2018
PLASP is great if you’re young and looking for a career later on in life then PLASP is a good stepping stone and looks good on your placement. However I would not recommend staying with PLASP for the rest of your life. They’re constantly hiring people but ALWAYS short staffed. No sense of consistency whatsoever. Each school does things differently. Some are extremely strict and therefore the kids are bored and complain, other schools are a lot more fun and easy going. There is way too much policies and paper work and you end up spending more time stressing yourself with that rather than playing with the kids. Sitting down is frowned upon for whatever reason. They expect you to get supplies through the money they give you but it sums up to nothing and then it’s also frowned upon when you go out of your way and purchase or bring in your own materials. They pay you for the bare minimum. If you’re in a big program and have to prep snack, you’re there Atleast half an hour earlier and almost never get out at the time you’re done. On top of that, whether you’re an ECE or not, you’re required to attend redundant training sessions that are UNPAID. Monthly meetings that just waste everyone’s time with things that can be said in an email. There’s no room for advancement with this company and very little support, resources and appreciation for what we do.
Unpaid hours, unorganized
