    Love the small town district!

    Substitute (Current Employee)
    Tualatin, OR

    ProsIt has a really nice small town feel :)

    ConsThe atmosphere between schools is VERY different!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more welcoming to the public and on-call staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The work was fantastic, if you were placed with the right team.

    Substitute Food Service Assistant (Former Employee)
    Tigard, OR

    ProsI simply LOVED working there, because serving lunch to the kids is one of my favorite jobs! The teams I was placed with were friendly, for the most part, and helpful to me as a newcomer. It was great to be sent back to the same place more than once (I was a substitute helper), and to learn I'd been asked for by name. The staff are always good at making sure the children behave well in the cafeteria, and the Tigard-Tualatin School District is the best in the world.

    I'd go back in a heart-beat, except standing for hours at a time is no longer my forte. But I definitely recommend the job for anyone in need of a lift, because the kids will always give you that. :)

    ConsOne challenge I found at this job was being placed with a few people who are not willing to work with anyone new. But these are few and far between. The other was having only a few hours of work at any given assignment. But I feel sure this would have lessened over time. Of course, standing for 4 hours in a row is difficult for some people. Other than that I can't think of anything really negative about the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure the food service workers at each school retain their team attitude as they become used to their position, so that substitutes are not alienated. Provide more thick plastic aprons for each dishwasher. Request feedback from each substitute at each assignment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The place where educators go to die

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people in the schools and helping kids makes this a really worth wild company to work for.

    ConsTo many decisions are based solely on who suggested the idea, for example you could give a great presentation to show the benefits of a program and get shot down. The administrators friend could propose the same idea weeks later and become head of the program. Lot's of nepotism going on here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because someone has been there for 20 years doesn't

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A drain on my life............................but not enitrely

    Building Monitor (Former Employee)
    Tualatin, OR

    ProsPretty diescent wage and hours, Teacher staff and MOST building users are great to work with, Simple job tasks, at least one of the three supervisors was good to work with

    ConsIMMENSE lack of feedback, could be called up at random if another employee ditches their job, being on your own most of the time, a few (but certainly not all) building users are difficult to deal with

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's see how should I put this? Oh OK now I've got the exact words...................................INVEST MORE TIME INTO EVALUATING YOUR EMPLOYEES FOR GOD'S SAKE!!!!!!!
