    I have been working at Omaha Public Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First hand experience is bar non. Benefits are great for a non teaching position.

    Cons

    Wages are salaried and the difference between a teacher & you is always pointed out. Singled out to the max

    Advice to Management

    pay better for those that stay so they don't have to have 4 jobs to carry as well. Respect the time and efforts of those non certified that put up with more than ever appreciated

    I worked at Omaha Public Schools part-time

    Pros

    Great once you get on.

    Cons

    They hire you on eventually, after months of even trying to get someone to call you back about an application. There is little to no communication.

    I worked at Omaha Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    Lots of technology to work with

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else - Principals are a disgrace. I was once told I couldn't go get feminine hygiene products on a plan period. That I would have to "wait until my lunch break" - when asked if I was expected to sit in blood until lunch, the response was "well, you aren't going on your plan period, so I guess so."

    Advice to Management

    Hire new principals. Take care of issues in the workplace IMMEDIATELY.
