Would not recommend this job to anyone.
Custodian (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MINovember 10, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: back breaking work
This was all I could find in the short time that I had to find work. My sister worked their which is why I went in that direction to begin with. Unfortunately, after a year of employment I injured my shoulder and was unable to work further.

Ann Arbor Public Schools was an awesome place to work for many years.
Custodial Supervisor (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MISeptember 15, 2014
Pros: looking back at a job well done after cleaning and large projects
Cons: being provitized
The most rewarding part of the job was getting those projects done when you only had a short amount of time to finish. Those jobs would always take place during break periods. I would work right along with my crews and we would get the job done. Meeting new people whether it was students, staff and parents. It was always difficult asking staff to do more for less and seeing them take pride in their work and doing what you ask.

Loved helping students achieve to their full potential
Speech Pathologist (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MIAugust 10, 2012
Pros: excellent benefits, paid vacations, working with kids
Cons: non-compliant parents
Working full time in the schools has it's advantages in that as their employee, the healthcare and other benefits are awesome! Was paid during vacations as my pay was spread out over 26 pays for the school year. Loved working together as a team. Love the creative aspect of working in schools in terms of planning fun, creative, therapy sessions. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping kids achieve to their full potential. My therapy session were varied between the classroom setting and the therapy room. The hardest part of the job was getting use to the new principals in the building and new teachers, their personalities, expectations, their understanding of the role that the speech pathologist played in the building. Some had high regards of speech pathologist while others needed alot of help understanding what we do and its importance. Some were micro-managers and while others left you alone to do your job and were very supportive. As speech pathologists in a school building, we have to consult with every teacher, including special teachers (gym, art, music), and parents. Our roles are unique because everyone has a different approach, style, and method of teaching. We have to learn how our speech students can best benefit in the varying classroom with different teachers.

Custodian (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MIMarch 22, 2012
I enjoyed my years with this company, i have learned many interesting things it takes to keep the public school systems up and running. It takes a team effort from every single department to make the schools a safe and efficient place for our youth to learn and grow.
