    I worked at Onslow County School District part-time

    Pros

    Days work are days kids are in school. No sitter needed
    Awesome upper management and direct supervisors. Never worked with upper mgmt that spoke to you and not at you.

    Cons

    Pay is low, never get raises unless NC gives one. Only amount is about pennies to the dollar. Benefits - only if you are lucky to get a full time position.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    In the area I work there are to many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

    I have been working at Onslow County School District full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Management is great, but more raises would be nice.

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

    Pros

    Do 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.
