    I worked at Gilbert Public Schools (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A district that holds the highest level of integrity and desire to seek only the absolute best for students to succeed in all facets of their academic career.

    Cons

    Budgetary constraints made many employees not see a raise in over seven years, however, because this is such a good district it is what kept many employees in place.

    Pros

    I don't have a micro manager. They just let me do my job and I don't need to check in every time I need to go to another site.

    Cons

    Too much school politics. Bur this is usually the case with most schools.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Gilbert Public Schools (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and lots of vacation and sick time

    Cons

    New administration at district office and they are getting rid of employees that have been there over 20 years and replacing with new non experienced staff. No loyalty at all. No raises in over 7 years. No advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Too many Directors, Supervisors and Managers and not enough staff to do all the work at the District Office.

    I have been working at Gilbert Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job is very rewarding, it's something you that you can get excited about, kids do inspire and they can light up your day.

    Cons

    Not very common to get raises unless you turn a certain age and then need to go to school to get a degree, hours are very early if you work a morning shift so make sure it's something you can do.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be sure that you are asking employees how they are doing/if they need anything. We should be able to be comfortable asking for things.
