Yes, to all of these.
Support from management
I always felt comfortable interacting with any supervisors. Confidence the matter would be resolved.
Teamwork is a major factor in how a job is done to be successful. I always had a "team" even though it might be one person.
Freedom to work independently
Fair distribution of work. I felt comfortable in suggesting any ideas I might have regarding work.
No problem here. I was only on-call so probably not as involved in meetings as others.
To my knowledge there is equality.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Well, since I was hired and some could say "old" I can definitely say everyone was great to me and treated me as they would anyone else.
I don't feel I can answer this; never got involved.
Overall compensation for your work
It is what it is and not anything I didn't expect.
Office / Work Environment
One problem here. I realize children are or can be noisy but this is ridiculous! Impossible for teachers to control. Students have no concern for others and do not mind.
Working limited on-call does not get involved in any of these possible problems.
I don't recall any negative comments or major complaints. I think the employees I worked with thought highly of the school.
I think the nature of being on call is not one of stability but you are aware of this and accepted the position.
I did not see or work with anything that could be harmful or dangerous. Precautions noted and followed as instructed.
Always a sense of accomplishment. Greater when you reach a student and they surprise you with something you didn't expect (like please and thank you).
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- See above suggestion and also teachers need to be given more leeway in structuring and controlling students in the lunchroom. I'm not suggesting teachers are responsible for things that should be taught at home by parents.
What I like about the company
Benefits for qualified workers are good. Fair and care about employees.
What I dislike about the company
I suppose this isn't something controlled by the school but the amount of food wasted and such things as paper products is horrific!!!
It is also disgusting when you think of people who go without these things. Children this age should not be allowed to serve themselves (this is the result you get).
Taxpayers pay for this. Waste should always be controlled.
