It's never the same thing 2 days in a row!
Human Resources - Substitute Coordinator (Current Employee) – South Bend, IN – September 30, 2014
There's nothing typical about my day at SBCSC. Starting at 6:30 AM, there is constant juggling - teachers calling off, substitutes looking/cancelling jobs, secretaries scrambling to find substitutes for open positions, etc. This pace keeps up until mid morning. Then it's off to my 'regular' duties - reviewing new applications and processing their hiring, meeting with subs needing corrective action, working with the various unions on grievances, monthly maintenance meetings and requests for sick days.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that it's never boring. Also, because a large part of my interactions are over the phone, I have the opportunity to work with many different personalities. Most of these people know me and know that I always take a personal interest in their problem or situation.
The most frustrating part of the job is that, because I've been in this position for a number of years, people see me as being in just this position. They like what I do and want to keep me here because my performance is always dependable and top notch and I'd like to move up the corporate ladder.
Free parking, most of the staff works as a team.
