    I have been working at ESS | Source4Teachers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like Source4Teachers because the district manager I deal with is helpful and accommodating. They make dealing with my sometimes complicated schedule easier when I work with the schools. I also enjoy the option of picking the school I want to work with. The job portal only shows jobs from the school district I listed. Management is also helpful when they know what school district I enjoy working with, they will let me know when there are jobs available in that district.

    Cons

    The only cons I have which is no fault of S4T is the jobs from the "good schools" get snatched up fast. So checking the site regularly helps. AND...NJ needs to pay more.

    I worked at ESS | Source4Teachers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for Source part-time while going to school. It was a great way to gain experience in a more professional setting (as opposed to working at a restaurant etc). I liked that I had the ability to pick my own schedule. If I had too much studying I just didn't work that day. I also was able to pick up 8 consecutive hours and never had to work at night or on the weekends (obviously). Overall, I think it's a great option for someone looking for some extra cash.

    Cons

    I worked at several different schools and had basically no contact with management so when I went to get a new job I didn't have anyone from the company to use as a reference.
