Good place to work. People are friendly. Constant source of work. Landscaping lets you be outside and have a different scenery. Working in the rain isn't fun.

Too much micromanagement

Used to be a great place to work, but not anymore. Upper management couldn’t care less about the employees and their needs. All focus is on department heads. Makes it a very stressful place to work. And don’t bother telling any of them something in confidence; you can’t trust any of them.


Most of the employees are awesome people


Management needs serious training in how to treat their staff

This place sucks

If you ain’t one of the cronies, what you say doesn’t manner. It’s “my way or the highway” attitude from the top. Don’t bother recommending improvements cause they don’t care. It’s all about growing government at this place.

Place to Obtain Experience Working with At Risk Populations

There are substantial opportunities to collaborate and learn research-based tools when promoting effective communication, and interventions with children and adults in the community. The culture is one that honors the diverse choices and value systems in our community, and shows respect to whomever is considered a caregiver and stakeholder in a child's life. The district focuses on using a positive climate, creating multiple ways to guide and encourage parental involvement, and implementing personalized learning approaches in the classroom. This is stressed as children often come from at risk situations including migratory homes, poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, neglect, alcohol and substance abuse, and low levels of parental education.

Highly Political Workplace

I was excited to get the offer to work at KPB, however, once I started the job it was very difficult to get support from other departments as everyone works in silos and wants to protect their own interests rather than working for the greater good. My manager was supportive at first but gave me mixed messages about what she wanted me to focus on. My support staff all wanted my job and with only one exception pretty much went out of their way to undermine me until they all left for other departments where they felt they had a better chance of advancing. After I left pretty much everyone I worked with also left so I no longer have any contact with anyone at KPB.

Productive and rewarding

I really enjoyed teaching and working with students. My coworkers were great and fun to be around. However I was underpaid for the job i was doing, mainly because the amount of training and responsibilities I had.


Fun job

Management was top notch

I spent almost four years at the Kenai Peninsula Borough. I enjoyed my tenure and was able to manage $5 million projects. I still visit the KPB on occasion.

Being a lifeguard

Being a lifeguard can be rewarding at times, being at the Nikiski pool was fun because I went to school with everyone i worked with so it wasn't to hard to get along with everyone.

The Kenai Peninsula School District employs a four, ten hour work week which is very nice but the state budget stops a lot of employment opportunities.


four 10 hour days


none that affected me

Good place to work

The hours are from 8-5 with a 1 hour lunch break and 2, 20 minute breaks. All non-management jobs are required to be in a union and management jobs are at will of the mayor. The work environment is relaxed and generally friendly. If your hobbies include fishing and hunting, then you'll be very happy here.
