Good employment if you have young children in school
Educational Assistant (Former Employee) –  Many schools in Sault Ste MarieApril 3, 2015
During a typical day I worked with children with a variety of special needs. Usually with a team of co-workers, always under a qualified teacher. Both the hardest and the most enjoyable part of my job was the children and leaving my work at school, not taking it home with me, I learned a lot from the children, I often wonder how taught whom more.
Pros
school holidays off
Cons
6 hour days

software/hardware tech (Former Employee) –  sault ste. marie ontario canadaNovember 10, 2014
People in the Dept were excellent to work and be with.
But, the Superintendent of Business resorted to 'lying' to put his agenda through in dealing with my salary request. Upper management looks at union staff as 'peasants' and discriminate against non-union staff. I felt like I was a "James Brown". Unfair wages.
Pros
dept staff
Cons
clear discrimination vs non-union

The ADSB is fun and supportive to work for as an Occasional Teacher, however, as student enrollment is declining right now there is very little opportunity to move into a full-time teaching role.

no opportunity for advancement.
