Pros

The work is minimal, around 6 hours per day. The pay is not bad considering the type and flexibility of the work being done. If you need to pick up extra hours to supplement a job, $70 dollars a day isn't bad for a 7:15-2:15 job, generally with a 1 hour Prep period and half hour lunch period.

Cons

Depending on the time of year and the area in which you work, it can be hard to get jobs 5 days/week. To ensure a job, I often have to wake up at 5am and sit at the computer, checking for job postings. Some districts and classes can be nearly unmanageable, and the job is nothing more than being a glorified babysitter.

Advice to Management

I would have no advice for senior management.

    Pros

    PESG provides all the standard benifits, albeit through out-sourcing, that one would expect in the education field. The online system works relatively well, as long as both side know how to effectivly use it. They are very supportive of part-time work. You are able to have your checks deposited directly into your banking account.

    Cons

    There is no interaction with the actual company outside of a 1-800 number. You don't meet or interact with any of the administrators of the district. The chance of making personal contacts and potential permanent positions is extremly limited due to the buffer of PESG and the district. Not knowledgeable about the districts they serve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at least one employee in a given district, instead of having everything complete outsourced to call centers.

    I worked at Professional Educational Services Group as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great for getting experience in education, especially for those working towards an education degree. Great way to make contacts in may schools and districts, and impress people before you're a certified teacher.

    Cons

    If you're not motivated to seek out jobs/accept them when they appear, you won't get work. It takes dedication to get on the preferred lists for the schools and teachers you like. You have to market yourself a little.
