    I worked at Professional Educational Services Group part-time

    Pros

    Great Environment to work in.
    Benefits.
    Great Pay.
    (not applicable to me but others who work with pesg as Substitutes or Instructional Aides have said that the pay is not much and their are no benefits)

    Cons

    Takes a while for paperwork when first hired.

    Advice to Management

    First hired by School District. After I was told I was hired, they had me do another interview with PESG through webcam. I thought I had the job previously. So explaining this would be better in the beginning or instructing School districts to do so.

    I worked at Professional Educational Services Group full-time

    Pros

    Working with students was rewarding.

    Cons

    They try to control the teachers with punitive measures instead of treating them like adults. The rules change constantly and you are not told what they are. Do not trust that you will be paid the listed rate, you might and you might not. And if you say something, they'll explain how you don't know what you're talking about....but, of course you do and they don't care.

    Advice to Management

    There is a desperate need for substitute teachers. If you treated us well and paid us a fair rate you would have no trouble finding and KEEPING great teachers. I love to teach, but dealing with your control and neglect tactics was not worth it.
