Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – August 6, 2018
I was a brand new teacher when I started in Henrico County Public Schools. The workplace culture was friendly and each teacher had an open door policy. Every experienced teacher was willing to help out if you needed anything. It made my first year so welcoming and less stressful!
School Nutrition Services Manager Trainee (Current Employee) – Henrico County, VA – July 25, 2018
I work normally 7.50 to 9 hours a day, learning to work with different people. I utilize my skills and those of the individuals I work with and combine them together to make one decision that will benefit the business. Most of the management team is helpful and knowledgeable. However, everyone can learn from everyone despite what position you are in. The workplace culture is fine to work with because it allows you to learn the diversity of different people. The hardest part of the job is getting people to respect you in the manager trainee position. This is because they are intimated by what I know and have learned through the traveling to different schools. I enjoy meeting new people.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 24, 2018
Substituting can be great or it can be very challenging. Every day and every classroom is different. In some schools the kids are very receptive and you can get right to work, in others it takes more time to work with the kids in the class.
Nutrition Technician (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 17, 2018
Working as a Nutrition Technician was interesting. It was a productive workplace with patient supervisors and helpful co-workers. Typical days were always fast paced. Easy going comradery between co-workers enabled everyone to complete individually assigned task.
Cool place, but not good for advancement or raises
Maintenance Assistant (Current Employee) – Henrico County, VA – July 10, 2018
Can be a cool employer to work with but that soley depends on your school and who you have over top of you. Hours are alright depending on your position but there is little to no advancements or raises. i went 3-4 years without a raise because it wasnt in the county budget. 2 percent raises if there is one
good hours, annual and sick hours accumulated every time you get paid
little advancements, tend to be belittled, little to no raises

Autism Teacher (Former Employee) – Henrico County, VA – July 6, 2018
I am an elementary teacher at heart. Moving to Virginia forced me to take a middle school job. I was unprepared for the lack of structure and discipline. While I loved working with the special education population and my co-workers, management and support were almost non-existent.
Substitute Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Henrico County, VA – June 28, 2018
A typical day at work was seeing how excited the students were to learning. I learned that many students lacked the basic essentials to life to accomplish their goals and academic success. The hardest part of the job was not being hired full time. .
VIRGINIA (Current Employee) – Virginia – June 26, 2018
its ok but management doesent care nothing about employees even if they were in accident. Co-workers are ok to work with, but its just supervsiors at your location doesnt car about anyone only themselves
Teacher (Current Employee) – Henrico County, VA – April 24, 2018
I have worked at a couple of schools in the county and it really depends. One school might have a great environment with supportive staff and ample resources, another could be the exact opposite. If you find a job at a good school, get it and hold on to it forever.
