Lunchroom Supervisor in Rutherford Elementary School
on 25 June 2020
Working with children every day and always being up for a challenge are keys attributes.
I was only at Edmonton Public Schools for a brief time before I lost my job due to the pandemic. The few weeks I was there, I faced many difficulties of learning how to cooperate with children that did not know me as well as learned to discipline and be stern with them when necessary.

Good pay, good hours. Horrible support and office politics
The office politics is out of control. Too many poor workers make it way to far here that it drives the good people away. My position was temporary and I wouldn't come back even if I could. You truly are just a number. The pay is good and the hours are fairly good. The work is typically mediocre but regular hours are nice. You have to use your own car but the do give a car benefit.Overall wouldn't recommend unless you want to put up with a lot of politics.

A place you go to let your soul die (trades)
Was excited to get hired on, but soon found out how terrible of a place this is too work. Office politics is out of control here....if a rumor isn't started by 11 then start one policy is in effect and is completely unprofessional. Management is seniority based and is clueless, they walk around with chest pumped out like they are something special. I wouldn't hire them to stock shelves at the dollar store. They have a old guys club mentality and bully anyone that is different. They express the importance of team work but everyone back stabs and throws each other under the bus, instead of fixing a problem they brush it under the rug. No accountability for anything. Time theft and material theft is also out of control, employees take 1+ hour coffee breaks 1+ hour lunches and if you try to be honest and take shorter you get bullied or rumors spread about you. Also hours are 7-3:30 but people leave when ever they want after lunch it seems...the joke was "got to go to the suppliers" Also they pay a vehicle allowance for employees which is quite generous, for trades to transport tools and materials people abuse that as well by car pooling and not carrying tools or supplies. It is such a mess. As a tax payer it really bothers me to know that our money is being spent this way. They also don't like smart, knowledgeable trades they seem to like the lazy, unorganized, unskilled but best brownnosers in the game. Oh and if you get a job here in the maintenance building be prepared to gain weight and become lazy.

Fun and very rewarding
I have loved working for EPSB, always very rewarding to see something finally 'click' with a student. Usually the day is always a little different, and I love that part of the job.
