Productive and fun

Indeed Featured review

Great if you’re in uni, you work when you can and great pay. Friendly staff. You go to different schools. Majority of the ones I’ve been to have been lovely but there will always be someone that will let you down.

Experience achieved

Working with EAS has been a great experience. You work according to your availability as in if you are available you can work. I went to different centres over the time and experience different ways to achieve the goals and reach out to parents, staff and children

Pros

According to your hours

Cons

Unpredictable

enjoyed working with Expect A Star

Most enjoyable part is going to different centers its very good for learning different skills, activities, management, set-up etc. I like to work with Expect A Star agency but sometimes they send us far away which is sometimes very stressful. Because I catch bus, train that's why its bit stressful sometimes to get their on time. But otherwise its fine.

productive and friendly working environment

A pleasure working for Expect A Star. Always had lot osf shifts, communication was great, extra training & courses available for free. Everything was dealt with in a very professional way. My experience with expect a star is very good but also very challenging as you don't know which centre you are going to and they normally just call you in the morning so you can prepare in advance

Expect a star

It is a good company if you are starting but the alert for job notifications for the day needs to improve for casuals, getting an app or website to access for availability rather than a sms

Pros

You get a job

Cons

Low salary

My experience with expect a star is very good but also very challenging as you don’t know which centre you are going to.

My experience with expect a star is good but challenging. As everyday I might be sent to a totally new centre that I have never been to and meet new staffs and children. But all the staffs and children that I have met are very nice and the staffs always offer help when I needed and I am growing experience in dealing with different situations and working with all kinds of children from different culture backgrounds and different family backgrounds.

Great place for those who can drive themselves

positive environment where committed workers flourish and have the opportunity to greatly expand on their skills while racking up plenty of hours with flexibility well suited to uni students.

Me

I had worked in may fields so far and I have enjoyed the challenge each and every time. I am a team player. Excellent communicator in all aspects with great administration and organisation skills.The most enjoyable time at my current job is being with the children support them and educating them into a better world.

Peaceful and nice place to work

Good experience for people who want to work part-time or casual. It is really good to go around to different daycares if you are keen on working in the early childhood industry.

Great Company

Reliable and offer a lot of work to employees. Although mostly operate on the Eastern, Western and South side of Melbourne so if living in those areas they are fantastic to work for. Employed on a on call basis so Must be prepared to have phone readily available during hours submitted to work.

Pros

get to experience lots of different companies, employer listens to employees requirements and does best to facilitate

Cons

Travel time can be long, on call basis

Not much work

I've worked with Expect A Star for 5 months and only worked 2 shifts. I constantly call but there is never work available. Staff on the phone are always helpful. Its just disappointing that there isn't shifts available.

Productive and worthwhile

Productive and worthwhile career but poorly paid so after gaining a teaching degree would be a severe cut in pay to return to the childcare industry despite the importance of the work.

Pros

Active engagement with chil;dren and making a difference in their lives

Cons

poor pay

great pleasure to work with them.

mostly i worked with after school hours but did some shift with the long day care. most of the time i had offer to drive over 40 km so wasn't fair for me. apart from that they pay good money.

Active lively rewarding

I really Enjoy working for expect a star its been my first role working with children its a rewarding job and a lot of fun I enjoy teaching them how to draw or read. we have a great team and the other employees are great to be around. I continue to learn from children behaviours and how it reflects an adults behaviour how rules and restrictions apply with good reason the hardest part of the job is leaving
