Interesting and never a day that is the same!
Supervisor of School Crossing Guards (Former Employee) – Bradenton, FL – June 2, 2018
Overseeing The Crossing, shared by 3 other supervisors, including their payroll, council if needed, if not following General Orders, that applies to all Crossing Guards.
Trained new Crossing Guards as hired, and a once of year trading for all Guards.
If a Guard calls in sick, or unable to work that day, it was my job to either find a substitute or do the Crossing myself.
I learned the geographical area of Manatee Country, as I have supervised every Crossing in the county.
Most of the time spent was out of the office. I did have a desk where I did the Crossing Guards time and compared their work time sheet bi-weekly as to what I had posted daily in the computer; memos, etc.
Reported to my Sergeant usually daily, either in person or on the telephone.
Early hours getting up and taking any telephone calls that need to be addressed, and decide what procedure to take.
The most enjoyable part of the job was conversations with children (usually students), parents and motorists.
Enjoyed every day while employed by MCSO, would have continued if I had not become so tired from early hours.
Retired with a pension.
Good starting pay, and the ability to transfer/promoted. Minimal pension as part time
Early morning hours, standing out in the heat and rain, No sitting in car. No benefits.
