Special Education Aide (Former Employee) – School Bus – June 27, 2016
While my co-workers were amazing (most), and like family, management is out of control. Supervisors change often, and with that comes different rules, change in favorites. It is a good ol boys network. Some of the employees are cut throat, and will lye for there own advancement. The children have become nothing but cargo, and the is not exceptical under any condition when dealing with special need children! The county is so scared of being sued, they don't want you to even look at the children the wrong way. Unless you want to get in trouble for caring for amazing children just keep looking else where.
The children are amazing
Not able to do a good job because of Supervisors that have no idea what the are talking about

Facility Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chesterfield, VA – March 3, 2016
Walk around the school every morning checking thing before the school starts. prioritize maintenance request in the morning work as many as you can before the students get there. Check with Administration for anything that has to be done. Check daily for repairs that have to be done. Respect I have for Teachers on how the children treat them and what they put up with. Great people to work with Team Leader,Assistant Director, Administration. Good people to work with pleasant and always caring foolishness but get the job done. Scheduling work while school is in session, starting one thing and being called to another. Going home knowing you did the best you could and no mishaps and everything is safe.
People, Co workers, Teachers and Administrators work together.
Cutting benefits Lack of pay raises over the years.
Facilities Services (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, VA – January 31, 2016
I have spent years at CCPS. I would run fast and keep searching. The facilities services (Warehouse, Mailroom, Custodial and Maintenance.) Horrible place to work for. However there is some good the Co workers are great people! The management treat you like low life's but expect so much from you. It's a good ole buddy system. Trust me RUN!!!
Two weeks off at Christmas
Management, low pay, no advancement unless you are family or buddies
School Janitor (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, VA – December 14, 2015
worked from 3:30-11pm after schools let out. I was responsible for cleaning schools. I strip, seal, finish, & polish floors when needed. Cleaned bathrooms, classrooms & made sure trash was taking out daily. Also monitor building security and schools were locked down properly after business hours were over. Got along well with other co-workers we all had our jobs duties & we helped each other out making sure the job duties were complete for the following day when supervisor comes to do his routine checks. The hardest part is making sure the schools are ready & clean for the flowing day. The best part about this job is working hard & know when to have fun while cleaning can make things easier on you when you come in to work everyday.

Working in Chesterfield Public Schools was an eye opener.
CUSTODIAN (Former Employee) – Clover Hill High school, Midlothian, VA – November 9, 2015
The benefits offered with Chesterfield School system were the best part of working for CCPS. With me being linked to the custodial supervisors and not directly to the school system's supervisors, it became somewhat of a challenge when those in charge in most cases, were not trained properly to actually lead and guide people toward a common goal. Those in charge of cleaning supplies were knowledgeable; however, those same individuals very often came up lacking when it came to fair treatment of those they were in charge of. Co-workers were co-workers... some were lazy and some did more than their share. Some were uneducated and it showed; however, you also had custodians that were very educated and just found themselves in a place in their lives that left them no option but to make it work the best they could. All in all, I appreciated the opportunity to work with them for the six years I was with CCPS.

Chesterfield County Public Schools is a very rewarding place to work. I have learned to work with a variety of students and staff. I have successfully managed several different classrooms.

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Chesterfield, VA – April 27, 2015
Chesterfield County Public Schools is a wonderful place to work if you want to be a substitute teacher. I have been employed by the county for 15 years and have had great experiences. Being able to teach at schools from the Elementary level to the high school level has awarded me the honor of meeting so many new and exciting staff members as well kids from all over who always have something new to teach me.
Make my own schedule, get to visit numerous schools and meet new staff and students
