Pros

Good health/retirement benefits. Most jobs low-stress. Schools will be around forever. Union employees are protected from unfair/unreasonable labor practices.

Cons

Reduced funding means cutbacks and more work for remaining staff. Growing state and federal mandates mean more complex, stressful work - for same pay and uncompensated overtime (for professionals and management). Not much room for advancement, or opportunities to develop professionally.

Advice to Management

Sooner or later, someone is going to have to say enough is enough - you can't expect a shrinking number of staff to do more and more work.

    Pros

    The people you work with are all friendly and the kids are usually a nice environment to be around. The schedule was relaxed.

    The scheduling system by phone is ancient and cumbersome and the directions and expectations in the workplace sometimes unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade scheduling process with website and phone option.

    Specific roles for when subbing.

    Pros

    Great if you are starting out in education and you want more experience.
    Great pay per hour for subs.
    Great for networking.

    Cons

    Sometimes I would have difficulty if there were no sub notes, they were misplaced, or not updated.
    You have to apply for permanent positions as if you were an outside applicant.

    Advice to Management

    Have instructors upload their notes so I am better prepared for the job when I arrive. This is very important for special needs students.
    Some subs have worked with you for years and would be great addition to your permanent staff. If a sub has a year of classroom experience and training they should be able to apply as an internal applicant.
