  • I would get employees involved in a discussion about things that could help benefit them and have them do their job better.

What I like about the company

I have met some wonderful people through working with this company. They are always there to lend a hand, and make you feel like you’re really needed.

They don’t add enough training for the responsibilities you have. They also tried to control every aspect of how you preferred to do your job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • We need to feel safer in our classrooms and hallways.

What I like about the company

I'm not sure it's a great time to become a teacher in this political climate--usually the pay is below standard for educated people, and the conditions are deteriorating. But I'm happy that Chesterfield County is supportive of teachers in other ways.

What I dislike about the company

Virginia state employees got a 3% raise this year, and teachers got only 2%. That didn't cover increased taxes and cost of living.
