That is not our driving instructors. Our driving instructors are real people. We acknowledge that being a teenager these days is hard and often it sucks. We do not just help them learn how to drive, we help them understand that a license means freedom and responsibility and their first step into adulthood, and we help them understand what that entails. You are not just sitting in a car screaming at kids that do not listen. You are helping someone that does not know how to do a thing - a thing they need to know how to do in order to succeed in life and teaching them how to do that thing. We provide all the necessary paid training to prepare you to teach new drivers the fundamentals of safe driving. If you are a safe and solid driver, we will train you to be a great instructor. About the Company: The Next Street is a driving school unlike any Driver's Education school you have seen before. We put a huge effort into surrounding ourselves with friendly, happy, energetic, and all-around good people. We hire great people and teach them the skills they need to be an outstanding instructor. We believe in helping you become the best version of yourself. We believe in you and want to help you achieve your career goals (and support you in your personal goals). We believe in creating a team environment with like-minded peers that support each other and make you feel a part of something bigger than yourself. Our staff is a diverse community of people, all connected by our belief in 3 core values: Kindness, Positivity and Curiosity. No member of our staff is a cog in the wheel. We are all (from the CEO to our Licensing Guides to Managers to the Instructors and everywhere in between) a part of something bigger than ourselves and we work together to serve that greater good.Responsibilities:
