    I worked at Professional Educational Services Group part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had the flexibility to work when and wherever I wanted.
    I enjoy working with people, therefore working with students in all levels individually and in groups to promote full academic functioning was rewarding to me.

    Cons

    There were more opportunities to work in the Paraprofessional capacity than administrative, whereas administrative is more my expertise. Although, I loved working with the children, I wasn't working with the same ones long enough to feel I could make an impact on their lives.

    Advice to Management

    No advise, I think everything is perfect.

    Pros

    You can create your schedule & work when you want.

    Cons

    Poor employee relations. Subs have no advocate within employee relations. All allegations are taken as truth by the company. Edustaff is a far more comprehensive & professional staffing company to work for. They checks & balances to protect all parties.

    Advice to Management

    Subs are needed more than ever in across Michigan... the company won't retain a good or be viable with its current practices

    I worked at Professional Educational Services Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    you can work at your own schedule and its convenient becuase you get to choose what grades you want to work with. your not forrced to take any job you dont want

    Cons

    pay is terrible, and they pay you after every 10 day period. so if you finished workin on friday you wont get paid till the next wednesday

    Advice to Management

    pay workers quicker, they dont care to see how your position is going and if they ever receive any complaints on you they wont see whats your side of the story they might just automatically termnate you.

    Pros

    Always a job, each and every day if you want it. At good schools the pay is $125 per day. The good schools have good behavior management and makes it well worth the assignment and a joy to teach.

    Cons

    Some schools only pay $75 per day. Mileage reimbursement is slow. May have to travel out of county for preferred jobs. Students do not respect subs so prepare to be faced with chaos, noise, running around, lack of attention and sometimes danger in the inner city schools. In the most challenging schools, you may receive 3 pages of behavior management instructions and 1 page of academics.

    Advice to Management

    Budgets are tight, but please have working clocks in the rooms as students are on strict schedules, behavior intervention available and janitorial services.

    I worked at Professional Educational Services Group (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible in scheduling as you, the educator, select days, schools, and class assignments.

    Cons

    Most schools, teachers, and students do not easily embrace guest teachers. Can be made to feel like an outsider and suspect. Must be very cautious about everything particularly interactions with students.

    Advice to Management

    Administration believes any statements or assumptions made about guest teacher without investigating matter. It's more important to keep the contract with the school/district over finding out whether accusations/allegations are true. Reputations can be destroyed quickly and employment terminated quickly.
