great board, not as an ERW though
Educational Resource Worker (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON31 March 2018
I worked as a supply Educational Resource Worker, which is what this board titles EAs. I had lots of supply work, but contract/LTO opportunities are very few and far in between. Lots of people leave because of the very few LTO opportunities and go work for other boards. I left because I was offered a job in what I went to school for, and that work pays a lot more.

In regards to the work itself, you are treated like a second class citizen. teachers leave you all alone with special needs students because they do not want to deal with them. they will also refuse to help or guide you when a difficult situation arises (mostly in elementary schools).

I prefered to work in the high school programs. all the staff there are so with it in regards to the needs and support of their students.
Pros
lots of supply work, high schools are great to work in
Cons
unsupportive, irresponsible colleages, not so great pay, few long term opportunities, unpaid lunches

Custodian (Former Employee) –  st basil mississauga9 September 2017
Not a good place to work pay is good if you are willing to take nonsense from others and being the scape goat when things are not right. Also turning a blind eye to work safety until you get cought.
