Poorly run by the franchise owners.
Centre Director (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 October 2016
Unfair hiring practices with salaries given out of desperation. Unfair sales tactics to win the business of families. Overworked for underpay. Unrealistic expectations of employees. Loud learning environment for students. Unethical business practices.
Pros
Speaking to parents and kids
Cons
Long hours with little recognition for going above and beyond

Can be a good place to work
Centre Director (Former Employee) –  Airdrie, AB31 March 2016
It was great interacting with the kids. Feeling like you are really helping them get ahead in school. That part of the job is really rewarding. The admin part of the job can be a little stressful but overall, I was glad to work for Sylvan because of the kids.
