        Business Outlook


        MPS is an enormous district with lots of sites for employment and opportunity.


        When I first started at MPS lots of people would say to me, "Always document and watch your back." This surprised me as I had positive interactions with my employers. I did though keep in mind a need for self-preservation. The cultural dynamics were starkly revealed during a teachers' strike, highlighting concerning behaviors both within the union and the MPS district office. Following this event, the environment was markedly toxic. Recently, I transitioned to a new state and left my position at the end of June. My time at MPS was enriched by interactions with outstanding students and dedicated professionals. However, given the evolving circumstances, it seemed an appropriate time for departure. Regarding compensation, while the pay I received was neither the most nor the least competitive in the region, it was satisfactory for my needs. However, potential employees should exercise caution regarding the health insurance provisions, particularly if they are considering coverage for dependents. My own experience necessitated a monthly contribution of $1,000 during the academic year to insure my spouse, although I understand the premium is more reasonable for individual employee coverage.

      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.
