    I have been working at Gwinnett County Schools

    Pros

    Management and people are nice to work with. The hours are flexible and commute to work is not too bad if you stay in the county.

    Cons

    No good benefits for contractors. There isn't any workmen's comp. Progression can be hard and there are days where there isn't much to do but busy work.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most holidays off. Great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lower pay. Must have higher education to get wether or not you are qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Not all your employees are teachers. Don't train everyone the same. Reimburse for education.

    Pros

    Nice environment as long as you keep your head down and your mouth closed.

    Cons

    Fired 1-1/2 years before retirement on a bogus charge. Was not allowed to address the charge. 18 years of exemplary reviews. Now blacklisted to any other school system.

    Pros

    Great school district. The district cares about their kids and employees. The district puts money into the schools and programs and that's why they succeed

    Cons

    Frozen salary. Coaches stipends are frozen as well. I believe this was the first year (2015) in a while that they gave the teachers raises.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    I have worked there for 12 years now and it's not bad now that they finally gave us a pay increase after many many years without an increase. Pay still is not enough though.

    Cons

    Way too much paperwork. Way too much personal liability for the pay. Not all management backs up their drivers like hey should.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level supervisors seem to be clueless about how hard this job is and the pay in no way seems to compensate. The behavior issues of the kids has increasingly made it more and more difficult to drive safely.

    Pros

    Good medical benefits ,Good boss

    Cons

    Hard work,no 401k, and doesn't pay in to SSA. Buy the time i am fully vested in retirement plan I will only receive around $300 per month. They need to do better that that. Also there is no air conditioning on over the Summer break when we do most of the heavy work

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a 401k and pay in to SSA

    Pros

    Good natured people. Enjoyable environment. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is below average for industry. 20% work, 80% thumb twiddling.

    Advice to Management

    Mostly HR advice - stop weighing certifications and education so highly - the people you have earning 100k don't always deserve it.
