PARA EDUCATOR (Former Employee), Rockville, MD – April 3, 2014
A typical day at work is to pick up the kids, follow the routine, correspond with parents, and respect specialists in the special education department. I have learned to be patient with the students, their parents, and to manage my time judiciously. The hardest part of the job is dealing with parents that are in denial that their children have been – more... diagnosed with autism. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the students make reasonable progress that affect their lives. In teaching special education, teachers work very closely to see that the students meet their respective goals and objectives. – less
MCPS is a good place to work. The benefits were great.
Bus Operator (Former Employee), Rockville, MD – April 1, 2014
Pros: health care, and the hours. i had a long break in the middle of the day.
Cons: not may of the runs are full time. my route was part time.
I drove a school bus for MCPS for 12 years. The co-workers were like one big family. The hardest part of the job was driving in inclement weather. The most enjoyable part of this job was my students. This was a part time position.
Building Service Worker (Former Employee), Rockville, MD – March 14, 2014
Pros: meeting wonderful teachers
Cons: no breaks, evil place to work
Very busy and problematic co-workers who always were hiding cleaning materials. I was treated with disrespect from the Vice-principal and Manager. The position was only part-time, I was under a six-month probation period. Meaning I can not complain to Human Resources, if something happens to me. The school has the right to fire me just because. I was – more... supposed to work only four hours but unfortunately I worked passed my time limit. They constantly changed my time schedule and added more responsibilities then what I could handle. But according to the Manager they can clean the whole school within thirty-minutes! According to the Vice-Principal it can be done. I enjoyed meeting the students and all the teachers staff were so nice too me. That was the only thing that was enjoyable. I personally do not recommend anyone to apply for a "Building Service Worker" position. Their Managing system sucks! – less

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Montgomery County, Maryland – March 4, 2014
A typical day at work is a pleasant greeting in the moring and easy climate. Work is vigorous but can be managed. My co-workers are well prepared and eager to get the day moving. The management is flexible and fair. The hardest part of the job is knowing all kids do not get a fair start. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I can make that day – more... better for that child. – less

Bus Driver (Former Employee), Christiansburg, VA – December 17, 2013
Cons: no healthcare, low pay
I have to say that working without any benefits is a bummer, but that is not all. The management in Transportation stinks, they play favorites and have no problem letting everyone see who their favorites are. Are not consistant, very untrustworthy. I would NOT recommend anyone going to drive a bus for them. The pay stinks too.
I loved my job and that – more... is the only reason I stayed for so long. The kids make it worth putting up with so much. – less

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Montgomery, AL – October 9, 2013
My typical day begins with a phone call from the Substitute Employee Management System and I accept a job and I arrive within 30-45 minutes to the school. I gain control of the class and I distribute the work materials/assignments that the permanent teacher may have left. In interacting with the children I learn a lot about their personalities and what – more... they like. They often have questions for me because they feel as if I can identify with their issues because I am much closer in age to them as opposed to their regular teacher. The hardest part of the job is seeing how the children in MPS do not have a strong desire to learn or be different. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I may inspire. – less
