Pros
  • Easy to change schools if you want to try a different school or want to work closer to home (in 7 reviews)

  • Cost of living in Las Vegas is less than other major cities, so with your salary, you can afford more (in 11 reviews)

Cons
  • Offensively low pay for teachers (in 21 reviews)

  • I included the cons above, but will add that class sizes are too high in numbers (in 12 reviews)

    Pros

    It is an okay part time job..

    Cons

    -Breaks your back
    -Lots of food going to waste
    - They don't really care about the workers' health
    - They said during training that the pay would be $11.41 but turns out that it is actually $10.00 with $2.00 deducted everyday which is mandatory, it's called "lunch money ". You have to pay for lunch even if you don't want to have lunch there.
    - only 5 minutes lunch break

    Pros

    Strong and supportive admin. Colleagues are great. Don’t gossip and you will be just fine. Many students appreciate the effort you put into helping them.

    Constant salary freezes and terrible health insurance. Classrooms are overcrowded and teachers often have to share a room to accommodate ridiculous amount of students enrolled per school.

    I worked at Clark County School District full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Off on weekends and holidays are a plus. Easygoing company, many positions to choose from for employment. Easy to find yourself working there for several years.

    Cons

    No pay increases. At the times they are due it’s always a freeze or hold on raises. Benefits are pricey for families

    Advice to Management

    Monitor principles more. Some get away with a lot using their position to threaten workers on loosing there jobs, that’s a stressful work environment very unhealthy.
