Helps to be single with no kids
Custodial Technician (Former Employee) –  Thornton, COOctober 9, 2018
this is a place where you will work hard and get paid very little. If your supervisor doesn't care, you will be frustrated daily. Work here only if you are single with no kids.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
low pay

Guest Teacher and contracted STEM instructor
Guest Teacher and STEM teacher (Current Employee) –  ColoradoJune 20, 2018

Pros
Temporary income
Cons
temporary income, no benefits

Highly responsible job positions.
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Thornton, COMay 25, 2018
This is a good place to work if you want minimal to full time hours, decent compensation paid holidays and summers off. Training is thorough and there is little to question on what your job duties will be and how to perform them.

Cook/cashier
Cook/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Adams County, COMarch 28, 2018
It’s a revolving door on these kitchens, pay is lousy the only benefit is a free lunch.they cap most workers hours at 19 even though you work more then that so you don’t qualify for benefits even though you should. They can’t get enough people to staff the kitchens so you doing double duty and God forbid someone need a day off. The kids don’t listen, they dump milk in the cooler yep you gotta clean that. Cooking is a nightmare, the powers that be sit behind a desk oblivious to what is going on, but they change things often and not for the better,
Yes you get weekends off and when the kids are off but you don’t get paid for Thanksgiving, Christmas and all. The managers are overwhelmed and stressed out! You work your bum off and then some but aren’t appreciated. And they want everything done as if they have the people but won’t give you extra pay time to do it, mangers meetings are scheduled around lunch, you get 15 mins. To gulp down your free lunch. They give the kids 4 entree options everyday most kids want pizza or chicken so that adds extra work to your day that isn’t needed. And with the new 2 hour delay start if the weather is bad instead of calling a snow day, we and others have to be there on the icy roads to be there regular time.
Pros
Free lunch, weekends nights off
Cons
Not appreciated, no benefits, poor pay, not staffed

Working with children in the classroom
Guest Teacher (Current Employee) –  Thornton, CONovember 20, 2018
A typical day is in a variety of classrooms, teaching children in the absence of the regular teacher. I have great respect for teachers and what they put into their jobs everyday.
The hardest part of the job is not know what type of classroom you are entering. Classroom management is often difficult.
The most enjoyable part is meeting new students and learning from them.
Pros
Never the same. Changes daily
Cons
The 5:00 AM phone call from the substitute line.

Low moral
Custodian (Former Employee) –  Thornton, COSeptember 5, 2017
I've had over 20 years experience in the cleaning/ custodial bizz. I thought maybe they hired me for that purpose to bring something on the table. Instead I found out they just wanted a brainless mop monkey. They did not honor my pay increase on steps and salary from which I was told in Orientation they will count for every year.
Second bringing newer ideas to work faster, smarter and money saving was out of the question for the head custodian who had no experience but was just a "yes man". The cleaning equipment was ghetto even though the school is in a good neighborhood. Half broken dust mop wrapped in duct tape to sweep the gym should not be acceptable for cleaning. Moral from the other co-workers sucked they seemed to work harder than to stop and think maybe we should try a better method. overall the kids and some of the teaching staff are wonderful I believe they deserved better.
Pros
benefits, days off
Cons
Management, old equipment, not listening

Typical Job
Sub Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Thornton, COOctober 15, 2018
I worked in the cafeteria at an elementary school. It was hard work but it was also a lot of fun working with and getting to know the children. We would rotate through the different stations in the kitchen each week. The hardest station for me was the dishes. Keeping up with washing all the trays and putting them back out before the next group of kids came through.

Very stressful place to work. Management is not supportive to the needs of the employees
Support Staff (Current Employee) –  Thornton, COOctober 25, 2016
Started out as a really nice place to work but things changed after a few years. Management is all about the bottom dollar and not the needs of students and support staff. Make management made and your days will be short lived. Beware! Benefits are great. CSEA is owned and controlled by management. Don't waste your CSEA dues because they are for themselves and not the member. They are a joke!!!!
Pros

Management and union

Studen Support Services
Business Application Support Clerk - HR (Current Employee) –  Thornton, COMay 31, 2013
I was a newbie to the academic world and I discovered that Student Support Services was also a world of it own. It feels like I have had to learn a whole new language working in special education. I love it. I never knew how many children in the school district; that my own boys attended, had special needs. The Directors, Assistant Directors, Certified and Classified staff are amazing. It has been a wonderful experience learning about the program and seeing the students and families benefit from the hard work but into the programs.
Pros
Education, Pay, Benefits

Simple job
Nutrition Services, Cook/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Cherry Drive, Thornton, COMarch 14, 2012
This job is not very rewarding in any sense. The main pull is that you get many days off, including summer, christmas and spring break. The hours are very short and the compensation is not great. The work is easy to understand and accomplish.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
short breaks, short hours, drama, low pay

Overworked, understaffed IT team
Systems Administrator (Current Employee) –  Thornton, COMay 13, 2015
Good co-workers and clients who appreciate you can go a long way toward making a job tolerable and money never hurts; but when you put in 11-12 hours a day almost every day and still can't get all the work done, something is wrong; 50 campuses, 40,000+ people and hundreds of thousands of endpoints are administered by a team of 16 people-and management isn't happy and wants everyone to work harder and do more. No matter how much you do it's never enough, and the reward for a job well done is more work. Management fires people for the thinnest of reasons; IT directors seems to think he'll be seen as "holding people accountable" if he cans good people. Don't let the money fool you: this job is not worth it.
Pros
Good co-workers, shown respect by customers
Cons
Unreasonable expectations by management
