    I have been working at Kool Smiles part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits for full time employees; at least 32 hrs/wk is considered full time. Good pay and yearly reviews are conducted to seek the chance to increase pay.

    Cons

    Poor employee moral because everyone is over worked. Poor employee retention. Quantity is emphasized over quality care. Always understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Increase staff to lessen work load. Amount of patients expected to be seen should reflect amount of staff accordingly. Train OM and Area Business Leaders to be better leaders/supervisors.

    I worked at Kool Smiles part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the patients, and doing the job itself is awesome. It's just the evil low down people working there.

    Cons

    The staff and horrible reports on the company

    Advice to Management

    Stop being evil & showing favoritism, because those are the ones that talks about you badly. Also, you should stop trying to treat people differently, because of their special needs or just simply because they are being themselves.

    Pros

    Fast paced, opportunity to work with children if that is your passion, give back to community

    Cons

    Vast disconnect between management, corporate and the little guys. The call center is a definite hindrance to those of us who work in the actual office. Let the p.c.'s do the scheduling, designate a person to do just phones. You will get lots of correctly scheduled appointments and they can make cold calls when and if slow. (which is hardly ever in our office)

    Advice to Management

    Act as if you care for the staff's needs.
