    I worked at The School District of Escambia County full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really liked working with the teachers and fellow techs. Everyone was very nice.

    Cons

    Too "clickish" I was told I wouldn't get the permanent because I was a family man and I wasn't a good "fit" because I didn't care about sports and hunting, so i wasn't to become a member of their "good ole' boys" club. I was complimented on my very high skill level which I thought was the most important part of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up! Judge employees on their abilities, not whether they align to your way of life or not.

    I have been working at The School District of Escambia County for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The kids are obviously the best reason to work for this school district. Departments are usually close with one another throughout the schools.

    Cons

    most of the faculty are negative bc they are so overworked and so underpaid! The superintendent does NOT care about the teachers and what we have to go through on a day to day basis. The administration is more concerned about pleasing downtown at the district than they are with ensuring a teacher's well-being. I can't remember the last time we got a raise. Our union is a JOKE and anyone who contributes to the union dues are simply paying for the union reps' salaries. They do nothing for teachers....NOTHING!!! The FCAT is shoved down the students' throats bc all the district cares about is teaching to the test. Political political political! Did I mentioned our benefits??? We had our dental taken away and about two years ago our free employee health benefits were also taken away. It really pays to be a teacher in Escambia county I tell you!! Unfortunately, many good teachers continue to leave and the only ones who suffer are the kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the well being of the children for once and start investing money in the teacher benefits and teacher salaries. Get a clue!

    Pros

    The students are amazing. They come in and go to work. At my school we do not have to worry about pep rallies! The faculty is 99% friendly--lunch is the highlight of my day. Everyone lifts everyone else up. Sometimes we talk so much we forget to eat! When I have an idea--they say--you get it together and we'll make it happen.

    Cons

    Would like to have running water and more students. Computers do not handle some of the programs I would like to have on there. Professional development plan waste of time.. Just grade us on student output.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Insure correct content, high rigor balanced with a warm heart.
