Find another career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Volusia County Schools full-time for more than 8 years

ProsIf you don't need money and like babysitting this is the job for you. You don't get what you put into it. No matter how hard you work the person next to you will get paid the same salary.

ConsNo money, no advancement, never going to change. Lack of supplies, money and absolutly no importance on technology and the future.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
