    I have been working at Edmonton Public Schools for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I started with EPSB in 2009. As a temp, I worked in 72 different schools in 6 months. I was hired full time AND WAS AN INSTANT MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD FAMILY. I have not had a bad experience with the board or the school. I recommend this employer to anyone .... there is always room for advancement and paid upgrading and courses available!

    Cons

    NONE THAT I EXPERIENCED. I was welcomed in every school that I worked in. it was a family oriented enviroment .
