Avoid this school board
This used to be one of the best school boards in the province. No longer. Pays lip service to the idea of employee and student health and wellness but does little to support struggling staff and students.

Some of the schools are in deplorable condition and decaying buildings do very little for student morale (staff either).


Go to a more progressive school board if given the chance, one that actually implements the policies that they advertise.


I have moved on to a much better school board that actually listens to front-line staff and the students in their buildings.

Its ok, if you keep to yourself
I love the job, and proud of being a custodian. But the complete lack of communication, poor management and supervisors more concerned with being top dog than actually doing their job allowing the lazy to run rampant in most schools. Makes you wonder why you work hard, and do a good job... it certainly doesnt get you any further, all it does is get you sent out to more schools to do the work of the lazy.
Pay is not the greatest, but the sick days and other days do make like balance good. And there is the pension, which is a bonus if you get in young enough.

Fun, challenging, and growing work environment
Although I was a co-op student, I was treated very much with respect and maturity at Jean Steckle Public School. You had lots of ability to express yourself, engage with others, and really improve on your skills as well as gain new and challenging work experience. It was the most fun I've ever had at a job. i loved the kids and the staff was incredible!
Pros
Great schedule, amazing staff
Cons
Unpaid co-op

Can't say enough good things here.
The job is about what you want to put into it, and it can be difficult with rentals and 3rd party aftercare. The salary and benefits overtake the cons, however; getting full time can be lengthy.

flexible hours and days
if you need a job that works around your lifestyle then supply positions give you that. You must be able to drive to various locations and be willing to work on very short notice.
Typically your day starts with a call at 6am.

Some kids are a charm to work with, some are very difficult and some will break your heart.

Some teachers will welcome you and others will resent you. Just work around them and remember why you are there.
Pros
flexibility
Cons
difficulty making friends
