This job could be great, but the low pay makes it impossible to live off of, so stress is very high, if I get sick or hurt, it’s the end. People that have been here a long time have accepted the low pay, as if they are beaten into submission... and tell me the benefits are great, even though I’ve had many jobs that far outweighed these. Many holidays and and other days off are not paid. When hiring on, I was not told that I had to pay for my background, fingerprint and drug test, almost was a deal breaker, big red flag, should have just walked out then, but rose colored glasses were still on. Supervisor and teaching staff treat you less than human, ordering you around at will(special place in h-e double hockey sticks for them). All praise goes to supervisor, and all blame goes to custodian. There is no teamwork here. Moral is all time low, used up data last month looking for other jobs at break time. Area to clean every night is huge, frequent calls to rooms to clean up large piles of vomit, feces, urine, blood. Hours are terrible, and switched a lot of times the night before, could be 2pm one day and very next day be 7am, and the asked why do you look tired? Ignorance abounds. If I had a second job, it would have to be self employed, because of the unstable schedules here. Again, could be great job, but schools look at our job as an extra, even though money is blown on things like the new software budget that is millions over budget, stealing the taxpayers money for frivolous purchases.
Low pay, treated poorly by some staff members, low pay, terrible hours, low pay, and low pay.
