    I have been working at Chandler Unified School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    CUSD has one of the best compensation packages in the area. The school board has a positive working relationship with district administration. Very proactive in responding to current trends in education. Good professional development available through the district. Great colleagues.

    Cons

    The cons are those of being a teacher rather than with the district: increased workload and every increasing demand for results from students and teachers. Integration of new technology happens at a conservative pace.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful to minimize the impact of changing expectations/increased responsibilities have on teachers and staff.

    Pros

    Loved the resources available to students and families in CUSD. Very high paying district with reasonable schedules.

    I worked at Chandler Unified School District part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for the Chandler Kids Express in High School and partly through college. It was a great learning experience for places I did not want to work for a full-time career (thus being a college job).

    Cons

    Management is terrible at Kids Express. For such a highly accredited district, it was sad to see the lack of good management at Kids Express. Management is ultimately what made this job/company of the District a failure. Managers were uncaring, very unprofessional, and had a little handle on how to actually manage anything. I am a college student and exhibited more professionalism than all of them combined. It also lacked compensation. The minute I quit I was able to make significant amounts of money elsewhere doing something much more enjoyable with better benefits and prestige. The employees were also very unmotivating. I stood out like a sore thumb because I was one of the only ones who actually did anything.

    Advice to Management

    Completely restructure the Kids Express program. Take a look at the people that you actually hire for management, and you will see they do not fulfill their titles. If you want to have a better business, you need to change. If you are not willing to hire good people, they will (such as myself) eventually leave. It affects your brand highly when you hire people that are unmotivated and should not be tending to children at all.
