    I have been working at New York City Department of Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You need to get nominated by a principal and then you have to take a test, complete 4 workshops as well as go to 2 hiring event( a little interview from both before you can officially become a sub para) . Once your in, you then have to find s school to hire you full time for para and that's the tricky part. But once your past that part, then you will be Fine. Being a para it has its moments but if you love the kids, your in the right field. Because you are at the bottom of the barrel and have to work your way, it can become frustrating. But the union is good and it has its high point.

    Cons

    Being a sub para means covering for other contract paras that are out
    You don't have no real benefits until your a full time para

    Advice to Management

    Stay at it and don't get comfortable of you haven't been hired full time because they can have ypu going from school to school
    If it isn't enough in the budget you can get excessed.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I waited for about 30 minutes because there was no organization. After getting into the room, the hiring manager spent most of the time on the phone during the interview. I found this disrespectful and opposite of his claim if treating people the way he would like to be trwates.
    Overall negative interview.
