I'm sorry things didn't work out for you as an employee of TOR. Substitute teaching is not for everyone and we try to make the challenges as clear as possible right up front. The safety of our teachers is a top priority. In 32 years, we've never screamed at a teacher. We only call teachers who list themselves as ready for work. If a teacher doesn't show up as promised, that's unacceptable...and we'll call to find out why. Even then, our job is to remain calm, helpful and reasonable while we sort the situation out.
Thanks for your feedback - it's important to us.
Our current pay rates range from $20 - $31 per hour, depending on the kind of credentials required for each assignment. We give pay raises per number of hours worked and often raise pay rates in addition to that.
"No benefits" is inaccurate. Qualifying teachers get: health insurance, paid sick leave, a 401k plan, long-term & teacher referral bonuses, weekly paychecks, flexible scheduling, direct deposit and the choice of where to work.
Employers DON'T generally pay for employees to drive to and from home but we DO pay teachers for their work day - from start to finish, including lunch breaks.
