Support from management

Played favorites. Vindictive. Slept with many.

Teamwork

Some worked. Others got paid for taking lunch and reading the paper.

Internal Communication

Mixed messages.

Office / Work Environment

Very stressful if you were not one of the boss's favorites.

Work-Life Balance

Made the office so toxic, you couldn't help but take it home with you.

Workplace Safety

?

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire the most qualified (whether they were born and raised in McDowell County or not. Don't let administrators take advantage of their positions. Put the students first. Don't let who your family is influence teachers when it comes to the treatment of students.

What I like about the company

It was a job.

What I dislike about the company

It wasn't what you knew but who your family was.
