    I worked at Eugene School District 4J part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade scheduling process with website and phone option.

    Specific roles for when subbing.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J as a contractor (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with some nice people, learned a lot about how to administer OS X systems. Lots of work to do at different schools across district kept things interesting. Fairly relaxed work environment, there is usually not high stress and pressure that other employers might have in similar positions.

    Cons

    Due to budget cuts very limited resources. Technical staff was spread very thin amongst the school district. Resource management procedures need improvement. Eugene is a nice town, traffic is usually a non-factor, but the weather can get depressing during the school year when the rain doesn't stop for weeks.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress, people really do care about education.

    Cons

    Not enough people to do what is needed and when you are found capable can easily be taken advantage of. Anybody who has really been borderline has been moved to the district office into a cush job--that's not right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope the new Super is changing some of these things.
