Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Bristol, PA – September 12, 2018
This job is a great job. I have worked here for the past 7 months and it is the best job I have ever had! You come in, they will give you the folder for the day and then you are off. I have worked everywhere from Kindergarten to 12th grade. It is a job I would recommend to anyone. If you have a college degree and are looking for a fulfilling job come join STS!
Easy if you love teaching, something new everyday, pretty decent pay, chances for moving up
A great company to work for to branch into the education field

Sometimes you can work a lot if there are a good number of jobs available but sometimes there may not be too many. If you do not like working with students, this is not the job for you. You need to be flexible, patient, and understanding---different jobs mean different kids, and different kids come from different backgrounds (but they all need and appreciate the help).

Excellent place to wet your feet for the education field. Can understand the different environments where one would like to work at. No benefits/time off/health insurance however. Not enough to make a living on.
Great place to start as a teacher and work as a Sub.

The Substitute Teacher Service is a great place to work where almost all of it is done on your own. Comes with great security but not so great pay. I'd still recommend it to others, either those retiring or as an amazing stepping stone onward.

I have learned so much with this company. They offer training and resources that are valuable! The staff are always available to answer any questions. Registering with them is so efficient. I wish all organizations operated like this. It’s great to find work that makes me feel good each and every day!

Depending on the school the environment was very different. The school where I frequently subbed moved you around so even though you signed up for one job you never knew were you were going to be at. It was frustrating, and at times, the school took away the planning period and one time my lunch was taken away and I was only allowed a 15 minute lunch break because I asked for one.

I don't have nothing to share that is not already known. A typical day at work is usually good. What you learn is up to you. management are never present.The workplace culture could improve. The hardest part of the job is not have two breaks. The most enjoyable par of the job is helping those who truly want to learn.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 9, 2018
• Substituting for teachers at schools throughout the district • Working on a day to day basis in a variety of academic programs • Responsibilities include working with children between kindergarten and their senior year in high school, assisting them in learning, discipline, and in some cases involving extended substitution - creating lesson plans
Student disrespect substitute teacher automatically when they do not know the person. Students 10-12 years old are extremely rude and respond only when teachers yield at them. Having the opportunity to help students do better in class by giving them more time and personal attention to complete their class work is very rewording. The hardest part of the job is the discipline. Some children are not afraid of consequences. Some teachers are hard on children with special needs and even when the administration receives a complaint from the substitute about this situation, they do not remove the abuser from the job. It seems that the administration is not very interested in the students learning but just their safety.
Changing the classroom selected by the substitute in advanced at the time to start the day.

IF you are someone who is looking for something that is completely flexible. Maybe if you're a student and want to make your own schedule. If you have a small child and don't have set childcare days then this is the job for you. You choose the places and days where you want to work. You also have the ability to work a half day in the morning or in the afternoon. You do not have anyone breathing down your throat and telling you what to do in every given moment. You can cancel the assignment at any given moment without having to talk to any person. Everything for this job is done online or through an app. Working in Lancaster county you can make anywhere from 100-120/ day
Flexibility, choose your schedule
No health care, No choice of work for the holidays
Phone Dispatcher/receptionist (Former Employee) – Media, PA – October 20, 2017
From the owner on down, very friendly staff. They have your back no matter what. Up to date data entering and retrieving systems. The job includes contacting substitute teacher's to fill empty positions at schools, across Pennsylvania's school districts.
Great working atmosphere. Nice staff, benifits. Paid vacations.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Media, PA – August 22, 2017
Work is typically day-to-day, so one can work as many days as one chooses. The pay is determined not by the company, but by the contracting school district, and given the job requirements, the compensation is comparatively low. I have seen no opportunities to advance within the company; however, the more one works for a given district, and particularly within a given school, the better one's chances for long-term or permanent employment by the district, should an opening occur.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – August 1, 2017
STS is great as a temporary position but it is difficult to maintain long-term due to the lack of consistent co-workers and the constant change from day-to-day location/work. The major draw is the flexibility though!! I love that I can choose when I work. However, I highly dislike the inconsistency of policies between districts, administration, and lack of co-worker relationships.
