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.
Usually snacks in the teacher's conference room during lunch hour
Can be hectic and can be stressful when running short on staff and there are many kids to watch
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.
Pay, hours, benefits
Office politics, worker support, little to no training
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.
good money, benefits, work/life balance
Management, support, office politics, no accountability

Upper management are old and like to yell at you. Just a sh@$ show most of the time.so many people involved in jobs that nobody knows what the bleep is going on. So many people need to retire there it’s ridiculous! Typical union mentality hide out and do the dog. Show up or don’t show up nobody seems to care
Best culture based place I've ever worked. Unfortunately the PC government cut education budgets drastically and I was laid off. Great relaxed place with very empathetic people surrounding you. Always people helping out each other.
Productive job if you enjoy kids. No day is the same. Nice to have the same days off as your own kids. The hardest part of the job is saying good-bye in June. The most enjoyable part is those lightbulb moments. when a child understands a concept and his face just beams. It lights up my world. A typical day at work will depend on your student situation. If you are responsible for a special needs child, Your day will look way different then if you are in a gr. 8 classroom. work place culture can prove to be difficult if cliques are allowed to build. Agreat leader principal can nip that in the bud quite easily.
The job itself is fairly easy and the hours are great. Coworkers are mostly great people other than couple of bad apples. Job security is very dependent on a yearly budget however and which political party is in charge. As soon as they think there's not enough money in the budget you are the first ones to get laid off. They go by seniority not job performance, You can be the best worker on the crew but if someone started working there earlier than you they get to keep their job while you get laid off, even if they're causing nothing but headache for the management.
I feel like a valued person. I am welcomed in each school. No discrimination. I Would highly recommend working for EPSB. Only thing is as a substitue, I dont get paid for summer vacations or Christmas or PD days.
Although the position could be rewarding on a rare ocassion, when students would catch onto something they were at 1 time struggling with. The teachers and principals took advantage of you all the time. I always felt like my position was unstable.
Loved working here but the principal didn't really like me so I decided to resign and because it was within my 6month probation I can not get another job with them. All thanks to the "review" my principal gave me.
