    -you build a great bond with your co works and students

    Cons

    -favoritism

    Meetings should be held with the cluster coordinator to help avoid/ fix any issues between the staff and the the site supervisor.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at North East Independent School District full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Health Insurance. Only work 36 hours / week. No nights or weekends. Good job for someone that doesn't like to sit.

    Cons

    I was at multiple schools, and every school cafeteria is understaffed. One person does the job of three people. Most managers are either apathetic, or bi-polar. One's positive outlook on life is soon dashed due to a toxic environment, and you cannot trust anyone around you. If you do wish to become a manager it is at the risk of losing your integrity and any meaning to your life.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever I would tell them does not matter because they do not listen, they do not respond, they only continue with their apathy, negativity, and lies.
