I really liked working with Western School District.
CLERK TYPIST 111 (Casual) (Former Employee), Corner Brook, NLJanuary 8, 2013
Pros: great hours as the job ended at 4 pm the holidays are longer than most jobs.
Cons: i couldn't get full-time work because i was at the low end of the list.
It wasn't a full-time job, but one I loved. Being on the casual list meant I had to travel to various schools in the district. It was a busy job working with management, teachers, and students. I like being busy. The hardest part of the job for me was the traveling. There was always a learning curve Co-workers were, for the most part, very cooperative – more... I loved the job and would have stayed but there wasn't enough work. – less

Fun environment
Sr. Adminstrative Assistant (Current Employee), Deer Lake, NewfoundlandMay 29, 2012
Pros: being around kids that keep you young at heart. holiday perks.
Cons: unemployment insurance during the summer months. i only get to work for ten months.
I work 8-4. My day starts with opening the main office, sorting through mail and being there for the students and staff. I have come a long way from a typewriter to modern technology I have learned to run a small business from accounts payable and receivables, deposit, reconciliations and much more in the accounting dept. I manage the school curriculum – more... budget and much more. Help run both canteen and cafeteria for our school. I try to maintain a healthy environment for everyone. My boss is a great man he is enjoyable to work with. I get along well with my co-workers, great to with. Dealing with parents and unruly students can make things a little difficult at times, but you learn to deal with it. I have always enjoyed my job, but the kids keep me on tasks most of the time. – less

productive and fun atmosphere
Teacher assistant (Current Employee), Jackson, MINovember 30, 2013
Get to work and get the children learning right away.
I have learned how to transition children from one activity to another with little to no extra "free time".
My co-workers are fun and outgoing we encourage each other to keep going and have fun.
The hardest part of my job is making sure all my children at the center are happy and having fun.
The – more... most enjoyable part of my job is watching the children pay and interact with one another. – less
