Work as a School Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Pensacola, FL – June 22, 2018
A typical work day will involve transporting children to and from school. I have learned that kids will be kids. I have to put rules in place to keep a limited amount of control over the children in order to make the ride as smooth and safe as possible. If i need someone to talk to my manager is always available. The hardest part of the job is when the kids get really out of control. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you see a positive change in the kids.
Work was relaxed and fairly assigned. People you work with are friendly and always there to help. They sent me to schools to learn new system that where implementing. Boss was great to work for and always listened when a issue came up.
A typical day at work became routine. Between cleaning assigned facilities, there was always a task to be done to stay busy. I learned how to manage time much better having to cover certain areas within the shift. The culture of the workplace was welcoming and more like family. All of the coworkers played as a team helping one another. The hardest part of the job was keeping the varsity football locker room clean with the guys in and out. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I played a role in keeping Tate High School spotless and sanitary.

No appreciation for time and effort devoted to there needs.

I was assigned to the northern part of the county.

ESE Teacher (Current Employee) – Pensacola, FL – July 17, 2016
Lesson planning in the morning and classroom preparation for grades 6-8 th grade special needs students. Individual lesson planning for varying levels of ability. 90 mins of intensive reading, 45 mins of math, language arts, science, social studies and life skills lessons. Social studies and social skills lessons and activities alternate daily. Time management is a must since I deal with many different needs in the class per subject from teaching non readers to readers. The hardest part of my job is helping others to understand that my students are able to do far more than most give them credit. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing my students succeed and the love they show. I could do no other job then what I do. I believe that I work with the best people in the world. My coworkers are so supportive of our students and it shows on the smiles and greetings we get each day.
You don't want to work here! Jail has the worst management ever
law librarian (Former Employee) – Escambia County Jail – December 26, 2015
Definitely the worse place I have ever worked! Good ole boys/girls club. If you have not worked at the jail for more than half your life, you will be treated with complete disrespect. You will see coworkers/supervisors stealing company time, not working, breaking all the rules while those who run the jail look the other way and you are busting your butt. HR will not help you, there is no room for advancement and when you ask why aren't getting interviews for internal jobs you are MORE than qualified for, they will tell you, "it's because no one knows who you are." Beyond unprofessional. The jail could be a decent place to work if they demoted from the top down. It's pretty sad when your top two in charge CHOOSE to share an office because neither one can make a decision on their own. If you have "personal" relations with the top two in charge, don't fret, you will get away with murder. However, if you have self respect and are a hard worker, you will be very unhappy working at the jail.

Victim Advocate/Sworn Reserve LEO (Former Employee) – Pensacola, Fl – January 22, 2013
No two days the same. Never knew from one hour until the next what might come up. Learned to work closely with victims and families. The hardest part of this job was witnessing the trauma and sadness of victims and families, also making death notifications. The most enjoyable part of this job was the hugs given by the victims and families after they had gained some sort of "normal" to their lives again.
