Productive and somewhat fun workplace
Food Service Worker (Former Employee), Elmira, NYJuly 24, 2013
A typical work day would consist of gathering all the materials and ingrediants needed for the salad bar, running the cash register during lunch periods, cleaning the work areas and assisting other co-workers when needed. The managers were great to work for and with. Worked with some very hard-headed co-workers but made a few friends! The hardest part – more... of the job was enforcing the rules when it came to the students accounts and their lunches and also dealing with the students in general sometimes. I loved my job and found the whole whole experience to be enjoyable! – less

no thanks, not in a million years!!
teacher (Former Employee), variousJune 15, 2013
Worked for the district for 7+ yrs. administration is all over the place with no consistency. Southside's head principle is a great guy but has to answer to the nuckleheads on Hoffman St!!! Don't expect fair treatment or fair pay, if any! This position is advertised because none of the teachers want/can do this job! Avoid at all costs!!

Not what I expected
Parent Partner/Independent Contractor (Former Employee), Elmira, NYMay 28, 2013
I didn't have a typical work day. Although I was told during the interview process that I could work from home there were several hours of work I did that I was not paid for. I had office hours during the school day for parents that wanted to come & see me, but had no office to work out of. Last while I was off due to an injury, but still checking my – more... email & responding to parents, I received a canvas email stating that they were hiring for my position that I had not quit. – less

My experiences as a substitute teacher
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Elmira, NYJuly 13, 2012
Pros: leave work at 3:00
Cons: no health care or benefuts.
Never a dull moment. I introduce myself to the class take attendance and lunch count. This helps me to get familiar with the students and learn their names. I enjoy learning or relearning subject areas that I teach them. the hardest part of the job is picking up where the teacher left off. The best way to handle that is to reveiw the material and dicuss – more... it with the students. The day goes by fast and there is never a dull moment. The Coworkers are always helpful. – less

Overall, Elmira has been a relatively good place to work.
Special Education Teacher (Current Employee), Elmira, NYJuly 10, 2012
Pros: very up to date technology.
Cons: budget cuts and changes have made it difficult.
In the past, I have enjoyed working at Elmira City Schools. However, the work environment has been changing with current job cuts and budget changes. Recently, they have laid off more than 100 teachers. Morale is not very good any more. It's going to be a tough year to work with such changes.
