Extend After School Care

Extend After School Care Employee Review

Extremely isolating job

Cutting costs at every corner. Supposed to feed children morning and night for $60 a week. Goals that just couldn’t be met and not enough paid time given for pack up/set up. No second worker when it was dangerous to walk to your car at night. No care factor from management and no back up given from them either if something went wrong.

Please Never Ever Work Here!

Please do not ever work here. The management do not care about you (even if they seem nice in the beginning). You will soon find out as soon as you stop bending over backwards. You are constantly treated badly, and the workload is unrealistic. If you ever take a sick day you will be pressured to come in, even with the COVID-19 pandemic. The children (like at any school) are so lovely to work with and so are the parents. Unfortunately, the workplace culture here is so toxic. The staff turnover is so high which is why they are constantly posting for people to work for this company.If you do take a sick day, you get penalised through your shifts being cut. If you need help with anything or are single-staffed, they do not care and won't answer your phone calls or emails. You will often find yourself working alone or over ratio with no worries given from management 0 who are based in Sydney and Melbourne, so you have virtually no support if something goes wrong. Vacation care is a nightmare because they don't pay for the excursions in advance and often don't book you in for the trip. We constantly look like incompetent staff arriving to excursions head office won't pay for, or book us in for. One of the most truly appalling places I have ever worked for.

Pros

Lovely children and families

Cons

short hours, shifts cut, rosters updated continually with no notice

Great opportunities to work with children. Limited salary.

Extend is generally an ideal company to work with if you are studying. However, I would seriously consider moving to another job/ or company (once you have finish studying) as the pay is simply not sufficient to support yourself financially.

Pretty useless

Working with children is amazing but you better hope you never have any issues that require support from management because you won't get it. No wonder the staff turnover is so high.
