    Great Place to work.

    Teacher Assistant (Current Employee)
    Richlands, NC

    ProsOne of the best places to work. You get to know a lot of people.

    ConsThere are to many changes and no increase in pay for several years. I have been working for OCS for 12 years and my pay is only about 150 dollars more than when I started.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn the area I work there are to many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I've had a great experience working in the Before and After School Program.

    Before and After School Director (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, NC

    ProsI love getting to work with Elementary school children of all grades (K-5th), not just limited to one grade and wanting to move up with your kids when the school year ends. A great opportunity to make a real connection with kids and, hopefully, make a difference in their lives.

    ConsYou really have to love working with kids. It's a challenge dealing with bullying, disrespectful, whining, LOUD children every day (and their parents!)

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is great, but more raises would be nice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    As with any school system, the principal makes or breaks your experience.

    Title One (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, NC

    ProsDo your job well and the upper echelon has your back.
    They go out of their way to help in times of need and crisis.
    Disciplinary action is only taken after all other methods of correction are exhausted.

    ConsThe board and community don't support the professional educators enough.
    Pay sucks, but that's teaching.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop more outreach to all of the community to support you better, not just in times of voting on a school bond.

    Special Education Teacher

    Teacher (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, NC

    ProsThis is a great district to work for. There are many supports in place for a new teacher. They will train a teacher in any area that they identify as an area for growth.

    ConsThe state of North Carolina is having budget shortfalls, other that the lower than average salary, everything is great at OCS.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep valuing the employees. I am glad that you do everything to address the needs of employees in mind while keeping the needs of the students at the forefront.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
