Not an Honest Employer-Treats Employees Very Poorly and Unprofessionally

What I like

Ability to work in different schools.

What I dislike

They do not respect or support subs, and they discriminate against teachers over 40.

Suggestions for improvement

Replace the head of SubCentral with an honorable and qualified person.

Company Culture

The head of the SubCentral unit screams at subs who were called down to his office and treats them very disrespectfully. He targets older teachers on a discriminatory basis. I learned through a union source that his dad led an organized crime gambling ring in Brooklyn.

Handicapped Accessibility

It varies from school to school.

Inclusive / Diverse

The head honcho is white and he makes it very clear that he runs the place anyway he wants (despite surrounding himself with minority and female lackeys who have no power).

Environmental Friendliness

It varies from school to school.

Attitude towards older colleagues

This unit discriminates against older teachers and targets them for dismissal. Even retired teachers who come back to sub after giving 30 years to the DOE are mistreated this way.

Support from management

Support is nonexistent. The unit is there to try to accuse teachers of doing something wrong.

Office / Work Environment

It varies from school to school.

Job Security

Job security is nonexistent for subs. Subs can be fired for any unsubstantiated accusation and they have no recourse to fight it lawfully as a person would have in court.

Internal Communication

It was always very difficult to get a timely and straight answer on basic matters like how to add a district to your profile.

Gender Equality

The boss is a white male. He's very domineering and abusive and makes it clear that he will do as he pleases in spite of laws against discrimination or union rules. He has several minority and female lackeys working for him but they have no say in what goes on.

Freedom to work independently

Most of the time you deal with the schools and students rather than SubCentral.

What I like

Flexible hours can make your own schedule work when you want to. Also learn alot about teaching a variety of students. Opportunity to teach children of various grades, ages , & abilities. Gets your foot in door can lead to fill time position.

What I dislike

No job security. Can lose your Sun license for sneezing the wrong way. No benefits or retirement plans. Get treated like crap by principal, other teachers & students.

Work-Life Balance

Good you can make your own hours. Can cancel job before 6am. Allows for flexibility.

Office / Work Environment

Depends on school your sent to. Some schools are ok some don't leave you with lesson plans.
