    I have been working at Eden Prairie Public Schools full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone is welcoming and kind. Eager to help and never felt there was a lack of support. Easy work place to ease into. Decent pto, sick time and PERA benefits.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth unless you change departments. No pay or pto negotiations.

    I worked at Eden Prairie Public Schools part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay scale compared to some other districts. Some great coworkers.

    Cons

    The students in this district seem very entitled and parents and administration feed into it.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce the rules, even when the parents are rich or have high powered jobs.

    Former Employee - Reserve Teacher/Paraprofessional in Eden Prairie, MN
    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Eden Prairie Public Schools part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy on-boarding Plenty of Open Elementary School slots Great facilities and school district

    Cons

    Hard to find high school subbing positions Little advance notice regarding paraprofessional responsibilities No benefits for reserve staff

    Advice to Management

    There's no notice about the disposition or precise needs of students for paraprofessionals, which means that unless it's a repeat position, we could go in blind to a long and exhausting day.

    I worked at Eden Prairie Public Schools part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    equipped with proper tools. reasonable expectations. Get to be outside and on rain days they have work inside to do, allowing you to get in your full hours for the week.

    Cons

    can leave work tired from being in the sun and starting at 6 am. You don't get a raise for coming back the next year. How the job goes really depends on the crew you will be working with every day
