Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A good place to work. Liked the people, the management was always trying to improve, but it doesn't always work to the benefit of the employees. Only worked 35 hours, always more work needed to be done.

MY experience here was terrible, I would not recommend the BWDSB to anybody.if you like being treated badly this is the place for you!

A typical day consisted of loads and tons of work and when that was completed there was more work and just when you think your finished there is more work. Good luck with breaks and lunches.Way to funny.

Pros

None

Cons

To many to mention

fun place to work

I enjoy working here but have been moved several times. It takes a few weeks to get to know your way around but everyone is but is very helpful and willing to lend a hand.

Potential growth opportunities

With the right commitment and values you can be successful at what you consider passionate about. If you are looking to make a difference work with children.

Productive and Great Place to work.

The workplace culture is great! I built relationships with many students, administrators and staff members. Bluewater School Board values their employees.

No Jobs

There are no jobs in this board for High School. The supply work is not enough and not a fair system, if you aren't in the schools you won't get called.

Great in most aspects

I enjoyed working with all the staff in and got along with them all this is while balancing four different Collective Agreements as I don't want to breach them. I was very successful at it never caused any issues.

Pros

Predictable start and end times

Cons

Never get any overtime to get that extra item now and then.

Unionized environment

Unionized environment. Management tries to support their employees. Fair pay for work done. Hardest part, no opportunity to advance career. Most enjoyable, great co-workers.
