Dream job but budget cuts are scary
I love working for epsb. The biggest issue I have is the tighten budget that is unfortunately out of principals control. What I need for stability and hours is in principals hearts that I have worked with but they are limited by ever tightening of budget constraints.

Great colleagues and important work
Most people really want to do their best for the students. The hardest part of the job is often the expectations of parents. Best part of the job is connecting with students and seeing them feel confident.

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.
