    I have been working at Waterford Public Schools part-time

    Pros

    Everyone at Waterford Public Schools is friendly and helpful. The staff are some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure with whom to work. They always have lesson plans, Even when a teacher is unexpectedly absent, there are emergency lesson plans.

    Cons

    It is per diem. There is nothing negative I can honestly think of regarding working for this school district.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be in the best interest of the schools to have a full time building substitute in each school.

    I worked at Waterford Public Schools part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to pick my hours to a certain degree.

    Cons

    Management is afraid to do their job. They won't intervene when issues clearly have escalated beyond basic conflict resolution.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce the rules and stop making exceptions to the people who scream the loudest.

    I worked at Waterford Public Schools part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Decent salary. Casual dress.

    Cons

    Many of the adults still act like they are in high school. Managers that shouldn't ever be managers (attitude problems, lack of ability). No consistent rules or procedures to follow. Lack of support when things went wrong - made to feel like we were the problem not the actual person causing the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get defensive when people offer suggestions to improve things.
