    I worked at El Paso Independent School District full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed the environment. Worked with people that had lost of experience. Visited campuses and dealt with school administrators. Excellent time off great work/life balance. Some of the people are very helpful to train you but there is not any official training.

    Cons

    Slow paced and long processes for everything. Lacks in customer service skills in the campuses. Media is always covering the school district. Central location is very old and outdated.

    I worked at El Paso Independent School District full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good hours, good support, always something positive going on

    Cons

    Its hard to work for a district that allows such corruption within its district walls. The public starts to believe the teachers are as bad as our supers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your teachers, they are the ones with the kids. Kids will lie to get out of trouble and Parents that throw temper tantrums should be thrown out on their butts! If you truly feel something is wrong, set up training or offer help!
    Up top - QUIT STEALING TAX PAYER MONEY!!! And board, quit hiring morons that do it over & over again! Get us someone with some class and integrity, and no criminal records!!

    I have been working at El Paso Independent School District part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was a tutor in sciences for episd. Worked with great teachers who were very productive. My usual day consisted of tutoring students individually or in groups to prepare them for the end of course exams. Great experience in teaching and working with high school students.

    Cons

    The administration doesn't give enough credit to its teachers and tutors who are responsible for obtaining good eoc scores from their students.

    There are teachers who really care.

    There is far to much bureaucracy and politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Principals and district personnel need to invest in better training then trust their teachers' judgements, creativity and decision making abilities.

    Pros

    Good pay and good people, the most important of course is the work you do teaching children.

    Cons

    School Board, uneven pay scale, good ole' boy jobs selection.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone knows what happen, just keep a board that knows what they're doing. Not lazy and willing to question the Super about what he is doing. Too much pay for superintendent or too many benefits.
