      Pros

      having weekends & major holidays off

      Cons

      pretty much being WORKED TO DEATH by cleaning 20+ classrooms in only 8 hours every night, very minimal cleaning supplies (& ALWAYS having to wait for more supplies cause there were NEVER ENOUGH TO CLEAN ALL OF THE ROOMS!!!) working for BCPS as a custodian was so NOT WORTH the pay for the exhausting work & not being appreciated for any of it!!!

      Advice to Management

      PLEASE KEEP CLEANING SUPPLIES BETTER STOCKED & respect your employees!!!

      I have been working at Baltimore County Public Schools full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The benefits are amazing compared to any company I've ever worked for. Constantly busy and days go by extremely fast. Paid time off, including sick, holiday, snow, and personal days. Unused time carries over.

      Cons

      I had no prior experience working for a school system and there is not much training available other than on the job and picking it up as I go along. It would be nice to have more formal training for people in my position to assure consistency across the school system.

      Advice to Management

      Provide training for new employees.
