Former Employee - Level III Special Education Associate in West Des Moines, IA
Former Employee - Level III Special Education Associate in West Des Moines, IA
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Wonderful benefits package, time off, and breaks during the school year.

Cons

Very little pay for the hazards of the job, too much negativity, incessant gossiping by teachers and staff. Very little real leadership from the teachers.

Advice to Management

Get a handle on the gossip and back stabbing and reprimand the teachers for allowing it to continue in their classrooms.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at West Des Moines Community Schools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Positive educational community, opportunities for professional development with compensation, embraces teacher leadership programming, suburb of a top ten metro area, quality materials and facilities

    Cons

    I can't think of anything I would consider a con within the district. Wish it was more diversified, but diversity is growing quickly, and the district is conducting cutting edge equity research to allow for the best learning environment for all students--bravo WDMCS!

    Advice to Management

    I love working and living in West Des Moines

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at West Des Moines Community Schools part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer wonderful benefits, co workers are amazing! Buses are newer and kept in good shape for the most part. Feels like a family. Training is tip top!

    Cons

    If you are wanting a job with overtime or consistency this may not be for you. Day to day hrs can change, definitely not 40 hrs a week, field trips can be an additional source of income but they are by no means something you can count on.

    Advice to Management

    Kind of a "clique-y" environment, some workers seem to get perks and more trips. Awarding employees who seldom miss work/call in with more trips would be nice rather then giving trips to those who miss quite a bit.
