Good teaching experience at charter schools

A good place to work to get your foot in the door with different charter schools. They don’t treat the subs very well and had bizarre policies around calling out even though schools are allowed to cancel assignments at any time.

Terrible experience

Very unprofessional, no regards for the employees. Very strict and lack of better communication and understanding of the employees. Pay is very low and you get paid by weekly

What is the work environment and culture like at the company?The work environment is safe and they are concerned about their employees. What is a typical day like for you at the company?If I have a question, it gets answered. They have a team that will work with you and for you.

Tone deaf, impersonal, and dismissive company.

They are very quick to punish substitute teachers. For example, they tell you to notify them if you're running late for an assignment. There was a 30-minute train delay which was out of my control. When I called in, the coordinator acted like she didn't believe me and told me that I had 2 more late arrivals before being suspended which could lead to termination. They loved issuing threats. Not once did they ever ask how an assignment went. They could care less. You are basically on your own. Also, the pay is insultingly low compared to other agencies. There are schools that are horrible, but the company doesn't regard the well-being of the substitutes. They're focused on making money. They are quick to throw a substitute under the bus for the almighty dollar. That's why there's a high turnover.


Weekly pay.


No support, concern, or professional development from management.

Great schools and kind office workers terrible upper management

I’ve worked with them for about a year. They’re a very strict company which is understandable but prepare to feel like a work robot. They call you multiple times a day for assignments even if you’ve denied them. They call you during assignments… when don’t they have your schedule??I’ve gotten chastised for not answering and chastised for answering during an assignment. (Sometimes they call you with urgent info) They can call and text and email you as they please. But they only accept communication via phone calls. Sometime schools will cancel assignments last minute (not school professionals fault,) but if god forbid you get sick or have an emergency. They’re condemning and condescending and will cut off your access to assignments which helps no one… not you… not the schools…. Not them? It’s silly. 0 sympathy as to why you maybe been late or absent And if you call them to let them know you’re running late… you’re chastised. No one wants to be late. No one wants to miss a check. They treat you like a teenager who’s just worked their first job. I had a family emergency and didn’t have access to my phone. Their response?Call your employer in the event of an emergency. Umm… how? No questions no sympathy. They don’t care about their subs at all, just about how we can serve them.


a good job for entry level, free lunch at certain schools, flexibility


No one goes over your benefits, Condescending management, impersonal, they call/email/text too much, you can only call them

Good job inconsistent available work

I enjoyed working here as a substitute I received many consistent positions. However as time went by the agency had only a few positions available and the work became unreliable.

Great recruiter/glowing resource for new teachers

Great place to work with awesome recruiters only need to work two days per month to stay active but there is work every day if you want it. Super flexible and there bonuses if you work every day. Two downsides one is the app sometimes is fussy but calling or texting your recruiter will always get you placed.Other down side is on the school side not the recruiting side. You never know what school admin. are trying to get away with, sometimes they will send you home and not tell you why, if sent home reimbursement does happen on some level just make sure any tattoos are covered some schools are strict about that, most are not. Just a suggestion but some companies are now paying by degree, as in 137 for associates 150 with bachelors 175 with masters and 200 with a teaching cert tract. Look out for those providers they are out there.I loved working there because it have me access to different types if teaching environments u til i found my ideal school. You are given a great opportunity to introduce yourself to both the student body and admin, and if its a good fit then go for it. Its a great temp to perm organization.


Sometimes free lunches


Long travel distances pay should be tiered by degree and cert

great opportunity to build relationships

Amazing place to work if you are trying to build relationships and plan on teaching full time. The pay is ok, but need to pick assignments wisely. Long term assignments aren't common but very rewarding when they do arise.

Depends on if you're ok with traveling

It worked for me until the pandemic, but I plan on returning. It's really dependent on your schedule. If you pick up an assignment you need to cancel by 5am that was my only con with me having a child

4 stars

What is the best part of working at the company?The company is a third party that helps connect you to a DOE school. It is a good place to get your "foot in the door" so to speak, if you want to get into teaching or a related fieldWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?The specific school I worked at was a NEST school. There is no training on how to handle certain situations. You go in blind and learn on the job.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?The school that I worked at was a nice school, with friendly staff. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Morning arrival duties/ Late Arrival, floating through different classes helping the teachers, lunch duties, break, helping the teachers until dismissal and then busing duties

Interesting assignments

It has been a pleasure working with School Professional. They always provided me with quality assignments. I have learned a lot in the process and am grateful for the opportunity to teach and make a difference in my community.

Very flexible yet consistent work flow

The nob had numerous opportunities for part time or full time. The daily pay rate was a good and bad thing. Some of the work seemed to deserve more pay while others assignments felt over paid.


All of the schools were very kind


Last minute calls to work

Dont reccomend

Every advertisement I have seen about School Professionals says you get competitive pay and paid holidays. I am here to tell you this is false not once have I been paid for a holiday or had competitive pay unless you have a bachelors degree and even so you are only working for $10-15 dollars more a day only doing more work.


Free lunch depending on the site


Little pay, no paid holidays, no room for growth.
