School Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Suwanee, GAOctober 9, 2018
School Bus Manager is a somewhat stressful job, in regards to being responsible for all the kids. Gwinnett does an excellent job in stressing safety habits. Overall the colleagues were great. Pay should be a little higher.

Special Education Teacher (Current Employee) –  Suwanee, GAOctober 6, 2018
Fast paced and sometimes very stressful especially at the beginning of the school year. The hardest part of the job is teaching students who sometimes are reluctant to do the work to pass their classes. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching students graduate at the end of the school year.
Pros
Working with other teachers
Cons
Not enough time in a day to complete work

Asset Protection Specialist (Current Employee) –  Suwanee, GAOctober 2, 2018
Gwinnett county schools is not a bad school system to work for, if you are white. They allow employees to cause conflict or ruin a good department for their benefits. Culturally its not diverse and that is part of the reason I'm leaving, but I have met a few honest and decent people that I will keep in touch. The rest can ..............

This job was a huge disappointment
Custodian (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GASeptember 25, 2018
At this job, I was paid less than a part time fast food employee, yet expected to work harder than most jobs. The benefits were good but being paid monthly was terrible, especially when I was making $8.07 an hour. Worst job I’ve had overall.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
No money and they demand more than is possible

School Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAAugust 13, 2018
A good retirement job.

This was an easy job with little or no supervision if you did it right. However, times are changing and the students are getting more difficult. I will not drive a school bus again.
