APS seems to be behind the times with employee development. It is very hard to matriculate if you don't have personal relationships within the organization the benefits are horrible. The best this about APS is the kids and the Superintendent.
HR Staffing Specialist (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 18, 2018
I love working for this APS I just don’t believe there is much room for growth and encouragement for utilizing ones skills. Cross-Development opportunities would be ideal for those who’d like to grow in other areas such as leadership.
Educator (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 11, 2018
In general, educators are underpaid and overworked, but in the grand scheme of things, APS compensates their people for the stress and workload they will endure. Depending on one's placement, being prepared to work long hours and withstand adverse adult behaviors, while also navigating how to adjust to the culture of the children and families that are served may be the most difficult part of transitioning to this system. Most people have good hearts and intentions, but unfortunately are not aware of what they don't know, and operate out of survival, rather than thrive from a place of abundance and support of others.

Substitute Teacher, Long-term assignment (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 24, 2018
I was a supply teacher with APS. I was called for an assignment nearly daily. I even secured a long-time assignment. The other teachers were nice. But the classroom reminds me of babysitting rather than educating as a supply teacher.
Parent Liaison (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 18, 2018
I worked as a Parent Liaison during my time with APS. I did it for the experience. The pay was not enough to comfortably live off of. For the work that was done and expected they should offer much more than what they offer. Sadly I was paid at the top of the pay scale because of my degrees and experience in the education field.
