    I have been working at Source4Teachers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with children is a blessing. The office and teaching staff are always nice and helpful. System is easy to use to pick up assignments. Teachers always leave a lesson plan to help the day go smoothly. I love the elementary age children because I enjoyed doing story time with them and seeing their reactions to the story.
    The training was very helpful and informative.

    Cons

    Sometimes your assignment can get canceled. Which can be inconvenient to you say if you have another job and you told them you were working and all of a sudden your assignment gets canceled. During the summer the it is very slow assignments are very few. As of yet I only was able to accept one summer school assignment. Say if that is your primary income that could be bad for you.

    I have been working at Source4Teachers part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can work wherever the company offers their services. Flexibility to work when you want to. Can pick places to work online. A lot of places to work. Decent benefits if you need them. They handle all of your paper work and they tell you step-by-step how to become a certified substitute teacher.

    Cons

    Compensation varies depending on the town you work in. Can only work during the school year and not any summer programs a school may offer. Process to become a certified substitute teacher takes a few weeks

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule full/half day teaching
    Location, Location, Location close or far away school locations

    Cons

    Favoritism,
    Demanding Job Expectations
    Less Pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide an substitute teaching opportunity for candidates without teaching experience if they want to enter the profession. Give a worker a chance to redeem themselves instead of coming down on them.

    I worked at Source4Teachers as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    NONE because this company needs Progress.

    Cons

    This company is very young and hence very underdeveloped. They have taken over school districts in NJ and PA with no vision or sense of professionalism. They DO NOT provide adequate training, DO NOT VALUE their employees, Fire very easily ( If a teacher does not like you they can simply send a report stating "Poor class management" and if a Sub get three of those they are FIRED.) There is no process of appeal, they have no program to reward and recognize good substitute, they have really Nasty Customer Service agents and they will ruin your life and tract record/employment prospects in education. If you get fired by them then you can Never work in NJ or PA as a teacher in the districts that they have taken over. Which is almost every district in the States.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to value your employees and better investigate report. Don't just listen to one side of the story. The way you treat people will go against your company and it will not Last.

    I have been working at Source4Teachers part-time

    Pros

    Constant jobs available. You able to choose the schools you'd like to work at and keep an eye on available upcoming full time positions.

    Cons

    Long wait times, lack of internal communication, incorrect pay amounts, unnecessary middle man. It is easier to work directly with districts. I never had a problem working with districts directly, but with Source4Teachers the process of substituting becomes more complicated and tedious.

    I worked at Source4Teachers part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They will send send you out to many school districts, you will get much exposure, everyday is a challenge, and every assignment is different.

    Cons

    They have monopolized substitute teaching at practically every school. Before every school secretary hand selected the substitutes for the assignment that most fitted. They do not mention that you will be evaluated at each and every assignment and that these evaluations are based on statements that are OPINIONS (How can you evaluate a substitute based upon a one day assignment). They do not tell you that the school may be located in a high crime zone and that the school may have gun detectors. The administrators at these schools, that S4T sends you to, make unjust acquisitions that can damage your work history. S4T operates unfairly. Its all about money.

    Pros

    This not a company that supports or thrives on micro-management.

    Cons

    There are so many processes they conflict with one another, easily resulting in less than satisfactory performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult with each employee to fine tune multiple processes and coach them to perform to specific standards.
