    I worked at Arlington Independent School District full-time

    Pros

    Arlington ISD had good benefits and a large geographical area where jobs were located in. You got to work with a diversity of people and students.

    Cons

    There is always issues with budgets and the ability to get the supplies that you need. As with any large workforce, there are personality issues & power struggles.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on team building and making education the number one goal. The students are our future and we need to show them unity.

    I worked at Arlington Independent School District (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AISD is a large district with many resources. The recent bond elections will provide students and educators with far more opportunities and much improved facilities.

    Cons

    It has become a district that no longer values its teachers. HR has instituted and attitude that teachers are simply interchangeable parts. This attitude has taken hold in the district from the top down to the campus level.

    Advice to Management

    Central Office and the Board of Trustees should remember the wisdom and knowledge that comes with experience. The district seems to be trending toward agism by pushing out veteran teachers in favor of inexperienced teachers.


  3. Very Age Biased against people over 40

    Pros

    AISD is a stable school district. If you have a job, you are pretty secure within the district. You can easily transfer and move grades if desired.

    Cons

    Constantly changing management. Struggle to be organized. Always changing curriculum and ways of running the district.

    Pros

    Not demanding, part time work, off when kids are out of school. Good coworkers. Pay is good for a little extra income.

    Cons

    Does not provide any benefits. It is hard to find people to fill in if you need time off. Very hard to move into a full time position.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. It's a wonderful job to have while raising your family as you are off work when your children are off. If you find a school to work at that is close to home that is another benefit. There is always room to grow and learn new skills if you are willing to move around to different departments.

    Cons

    The pay is not very good; however, if you work Summer School or find a job during the Summer months will make up for it.


  8. It's a great job only if you enjoy working around children.

    I have been working at Arlington Independent School District part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It a good job if you have children you will be off on all the school holidays. This means that you will get to spend more time with your children on major holidays.

    Cons

    The time off policies sucks only because not all employees get paid for the holiday off periods. So the Christmas and Summer breaks comes along you will not get paid them days off like a school teacher will or other employees.
