    I worked at Ministerio de Educacion part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours are fantastic. Children are great. Teachers were fun to work with. Overall, a once in a lifetime experience to get paid to live abroad.

    Cons

    Redundant work with no training. Sometimes the job placements can be far away from the city center and require hours or transit every day.

    Advice to Management

    Train the auxiliars coming over and maybe upgrade their skill level. It could be beneficial to have an auxiliar who not only was able to provide a native english speaker in the classroom, but one that also could support a classroom on his or her own.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Ministerio de Educacion part-time

    Pros

    You get to live and work in Spain. The healthcare is awesome compared to in the US.

    Cons

    The program is horrible disorganized. You get all your information at the last minute. There's a complete aloofness and callous attitude since we're all considered expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Lobby for exemptions to the extranjería bureaucracy. Get it in writing. Pay us on time. Have accountability mechanisms for us to be reimbursed for costs associated with ridiculous rules and poor organization.

    Pros

    It's a good way to get experience but the wave is ridiculous. Get the experience and leave.

    Cons

    The wave it too low and some of the bosses are bossy. Also, you don't get money for the transportation neither.
