Reviews about Pay & benefits for Educational Assistant at Calgary Board Of Education

Compensation should be greater but good company to work for

I worked as an Educational Assistant for several years, and reached the top of the pay scale. I do feel that the pay structure should be realistic in the sense of increments for staff who have reached the top of the pay scale, as it has not changed in many years. Pay is fair when compared to compensation at other school boards for the same job. The job itself varies depending on what school you work at. I worked at a special setting school that supported children with complex disabilities. It was a fantastic place to be, and the children were wonderful. It's all about perspective and what you put into it, is what you will get back.

Great place to work

I really enjoy my work that I have being doing with the CBE. I work on the casual roster but am still working in a full time capacity. I don't get benefits which is unfortunate, however the annual raise and vacation pay is always appreciated.

Diverse place to work at with great benefits.

workplace culture really differs from school to school you work in. It also trickles down from frontline administration or your immediate supervisors and the teachers you work with. That dynamic shifts from school to school so definitely having a strong characteristic as an employee or as a support staff with good communication skills help to clear the lines of communication. When working with for the CBE, the pros and cons are just as even. The families are diverse which can be great. The variety and spectrum of coverage of work can be a lot but also simplified. The support you will receive from the CBE is quite tremendous. They provide great benefits, pension and even a support program not just concentrating with work but for your regular life. A bit of downfall is only having to work 30 hours as a maximum full-time hours presented to a support staff. The summers are also unemployment season, so definitely be prepared to apply for EI and look for temporary work during 2 to 3 months of no school.


summers off, holidays off, great benefits, great pension plan, good outside work-life support with programs and outreach, diverse community


job hours for next school year is never definite- depends on enrolments, summers off means no pay- EI and look for temp jobs.
