Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
culture was inclusive, most enjoyable part of the job in dealing with the children. Workplace culture was school related. Teachers, admin staff and principals are there to make the children's lives easier.

Meaningful work

Worked alongside wonderful teaching staff, with the goal of helping students from all backgrounds with various learning challenges. I was able to participate in several personal development days, which was excellent support in an ever changing school environment.

Relaxed Environment

A typical day of work will go unsupervised with a lot of job autonomy. Management is friendly with a culture that is designed for the development of the children in the division.

Productive work place

very busy with students. A good team work under experienced teachers. Wonderful management. Helpful coworkers and multi cultural atmosphere. Nothing is hard to learn because I have that experience. Enjoyable part of the job is every day you see a positive energy in students and they share with you.

The Children are my heart

This School Division does not care about the children they care about there image. The children are a number it saddens my heart. No wonder most of the children don't listen. The parents dont listen to the children neither do most of the teachers if they did these kids wouldnt misbehave so much. They dont know what no means and they dont know what respect is. To bad parents your in for dire trouble in the future. Spend quality time with them its not to late tell them you love them and teach them respect. That means respect and stick to your guns, in case you dont know what that means, be consistent Dont let anyone harm your child. Get back to old values. The School Division should stop letting parents push them arund policy is policy and dont let abusive teachers get away with it. There are a number. Have someone seperate from the school division interview teachers who are hired especially male teachers.

Pros

None except to be with the children to protect them

Cons

Lunch Monitors are treated disrespectfully by office staff and students as well as some teachers.

Excellent place to work.

Excellent place to work. Good salary or pay, good environment. People are friendly and helpful. I prefer being phoned the night before or sooner about an assignment rather than the morning of the assignment, but I guess that can't be helped.

Pros

excellent overall place to work

Cons

none

I really enjoyed working for Pembia Trails and I suspect that you will too!

To work in various schools you will need to be flexible. You will be working with staff and students, but this flexibility is mostly the result of the students. The workplace is enjoyable and you will usually have some downtime in the staffroom which is usually quiet. The hardest and enjoyable part of the job is the students. Although working with students can be difficult from time to time, but is always rewarding in the end.

Pros

You'll meet great people.

Cons

It is difficult to get a permanent position.

Very good people to work with

An excellent summer job for those who are looking for a fun simple summer job with good pay and great management. The people you work with are chipper and fun to work with. hardest part of the job is trying to get in touch with the managers sometimes so occasionally we have gotten a little lost but all in all great experience.

Pros

Healthy work environment

Cons

going from school to school sometimes on a whims notice

What could be more fun than kids?

Making sure that children were playing fair and safely meant that I was helping my community as a whole. It gave me an opportunity to earn a bit of money while ensuring I ventured out of the house everyday.

Great job for moms with kids in school

Days are short and great for when my kids were in school. I have learned so much about people, diversity and how to deal with so many situations. Workplace culture was great for me. Hardest part of the job is when you can not reach a child and you lose them to pier pressure. Most enjoyable would be all the great kids and adults I have meet in the job.
