Pros: you get lots of time off. you may work at a great school and deal with great people. i did.
Cons: the district management is terrible. the time you get off is probably because you were furloughed, and the pay, which is already terrible, is reduced by the furloughs. it is not worth pursuing employment here.
I'll start by saying that I loved my job at APS. The work was enjoyable, and the people are friendly. Working for APS provides a lot of opportunities for learning, and the school where I worked had a great environment.
But in terms of pay? APS is pathetic. And APS proper is run by incompetents. The different groups within APS don't communicate well – more... together. APS wastes millions of dollars on any new technology marketed by any shyster, while at the same time furloughing and cutting the pay of anyone unlucky enough not to be protected by the union.
I loved my job, but I hated APS. There were huge problems at the top. If I'd have known the number of ignorant edicts that come down from the top, I'd have avoided APS. – less
