It takes a very long time to advance to permanent. And a car is required to sub. Sometimes a term shift is offered then cancelled after the first day.

I worked as a Summer Custodial Assistant while I was in grade 11 and 12 of high school. The work was tough, but it was very active and fun, especially with all of the different school's custodial staff! Each day ends with a job well done!

I was at the same school for 28 years, in WSD for almost 32 years. I enjoyed working with the families, staff and colleagues from other schools. The position of a Community Support Worker is a very hard job. I enjoyed the challenges, meeting people and learning new skills as needed. I’m very thankful for working in the Division for my employment years. Now looking for something new to challenge me!

I was an educational assistant for 10 years and it was an amazing 10 years. I left to pursue the addictions and mental health field.

I liked school jobs
Most of their principals and secretary are racist

I enjoyed working with adults and children

30 minutes recess during winter time is to much.

It hard to get full time positions

I enjoyed working as a head caretaker at Winnipeg School Division.I am in my 13th years with WSD#1. There has been good times and bad times have been seeing the students grow up and come back in September with their children starting school. As a Head Caretaker i have seen school that it is becoming worse or less successful when it comes to cleaning of schools.
The most enjoyable part of the job is good pay, great experience, amazing people and good benefits.

The hardest part of the job is wake up early, hard work. Work in both cold and Heat.

I've learned as a Head Caretaker my responsibility is to ensure the buildings are well- maintained safe, secure and clean. Carrying out day-to-day maintenance and minor repairs.

The entire organization needs to be dismantled. From the board of trustees to HR to the administration team, there isn’t a single department that doesn’t need at least 50 percent of its staff laid off. The one departmental exception is their team of consultants. This department needs to be closed down in its entirety. Not one individual is useful. Just a whole lot of busy work foisted on an unwilling workforce.

It's a school to school basis. On a sub, term or permanent basis.
Sub to sub is hard particularly in the winter season, esp. in my case I take the transit as transport. It depends on the grade level you picked up or assigned. In my case, subbing was good for me because I got to work in 28 out 78 schools in the division and I got to work Nursery to Gr. 12 classes. But, it requires ( on my part,personally) research/ study so I can be ready to assist/tutor students as per gr. level.
Pros
No. Only during social committee hosted lunches or someone was kind enough

When there is an assembly and I have to prepare the student what they gonna have in the assembly. I learned to good in managing the students during the assembly. I talk to them ahead of time what attitude is expected during the assembly. I can work with student from different cultural background and I use to understand each of them. It is so hard when there are many adjustment and get ready to deal with different student with different attitudes. I enjoy working with the students when they are in need to work in the gym.
Pros
Fair treatment
Cons
Favouritism
