    Pros

    Pay was $95.00 per day. Used to be all u needed was an associates degree but they changed it to a Bachelor's degree but didn't increase the pay. Laid back. You get to pick where and when you want to work. I always chose the high school students because they are self governed. Ovoid schools in Belfountaine area (Southeast and East Middle School) because they kids are impossible to handle just about. East High is not bad like people say. You just have to be stern and know how to deal with them. Don't smile..come in the class with an attitude almost but they respect you if you seem cool and look good. Kids in Hazelwood are generally good despite what ppl say. U just can't be a pushover.

    Cons

    Not enough pay, no benefits, and sometimes you couldn't get a job. You have to look for one on the SubFinder system constantly which took up lots of time when jobs were scarce when teachers weren't taking off work. But it was a hustle. I think they cracked down on teachers taking off too often or something.

    Advice to Management

    At least make it $100 per day because Substitute Teachers deal with a lot

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Hazelwood School District (Hazelwood, MO) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Not very in depth. Simple questions. Seemed that they were just looking to fill the position and as long as you had the proper certification and was willing to work there, you were hired. They have quite a revolving door of staff. I was told that I'd be teaching 3rd grade but then only a week before school started, I was told I was going to be teaching 5th grade which wasn't the job I accepted or wanted but didn't have a choice if I wanted a job that late in the year.

    Interview Questions

    • What would I bring to the students at the school?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Nothing. Salary and benefits were negotiated already by local teacher's union and school board and they went off a scale of degree plus years of experience.
