    Pros

    It is a job...period. Make great friends that can last a lifetime. Great if you have kids because you can be home when they are.

    Cons

    100% loyatly is expected of the employee but there is none returned from the emloyer.
    Refusal to look at transfer request
    Favoritism is the norm
    Very low pay for the responsibility level.
    There is a lot expected from the drivers in the form of paperwork

    Advice to Management

    Look to your supervisors more for the issues within the zones.

    Pros

    GCPS is a respected school system in Georgia education. The county is strong, emphasizing accelerated and AP education for as many high school students as possible. Over 80% of 2012 graduates reported plans to pursue postsecondary education. They were offered over a million dollars in scholarships, not including the Hope Scholarship and Gates Millennium Scholarship. Close to half the class took at least one advanced placement course during their high school tenure. We have a lot to be proud of, and I'm thankful to have spent my entire career as a teacher in the Gwinnett County System.

    Cons

    The country's economic woes have deeply affected the teaching profession. GCPS teachers have not received the longevity-step salary increase the past five years.
