    I have been working at Eugene School District 4J full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Always busy and constantly changing with newer classroom technology and teaching apps. The tech team works together to resolve issues, but overall supervision is very minimal for techs.

    Cons

    A few teachers take more of your time for basic issues. So times the small request keep you from working on larger and more exiting projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    Friendly, welcoming community that encourages collaboration

    Cons

    Limited resources and ambitions, to provide accommodations for the working professional. Heavily influenced by helicopter parents.

    I have been working at Eugene School District 4J part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can work when I want and not work when I don't have time. If you concentrate subbing on one school it almost feels like you are employee of that school.

    Cons

    When you don't want to work you still get annoying automated calls at 6:30 am.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary negotiation is fair and reasonable. Benefits are good and are effective immediately upon employment. Hiring process was efficient and expeditious.

    Cons

    Administration is inconsistent and inefficient. High turnover is indicative of organizational dysfunction. Leadership has little to no accountability and facilitates a culture of distrust. Training is minimal at best.

    Advice to Management

    Areas of high turnover should be identified to improve leadership therein.

    I have been working at Eugene School District 4J part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent hourly wage for the area

    Cons

    No promotional opportunities. You never get enough hours to make enough to really live on. They keep everyone very part time.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all of the extra weight downtown.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome health coverage and benefits, I would drive extra hours if I needed the money and got paid for 4 hours even if finishing route early

    Cons

    Don't see any real downfalls. Had to deal with young handicapped kids but they were still manageable

    Advice to Management

    No real advice, the atmosphere is friendly and will work with you when experiencing personal issues.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people you work with are all friendly and the kids are usually a nice environment to be around. The schedule was relaxed.

    Cons

    The scheduling system by phone is ancient and cumbersome and the directions and expectations in the workplace sometimes unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade scheduling process with website and phone option.

    Specific roles for when subbing.

    Pros

    Casual dress, people really do care about education.

    Cons

    Not enough people to do what is needed and when you are found capable can easily be taken advantage of. Anybody who has really been borderline has been moved to the district office into a cush job--that's not right.

    Advice to Management

    Hope the new Super is changing some of these things.
