At ESS, it’s no coincidence that we treat our employees well and they like working for us – the two go hand-in-hand! We offer a variety of benefits, perks, and learning opportunities that keep our employees motivated, prepared, and engaged.

Meaningful Work
ESS employees make a difference every day by supporting the needs of students and helping them reach their maximum potential.

Flexible Schedules
Daily substitutes choose when, where, and how often they’d like to work with 24/7 access to our convenient online scheduling system. Meanwhile, those looking for steadier work can fill a long-term or permanent assignment.

Employee Benefits
To give our employees peace of mind, we offer a variety of insurance options including medical, dental, vision, life, disability, critical illness, and accident.

Ongoing Training & Support
Our interactive training course and accessible online modules ensure our employees are confident and well-prepared for their roles. With open lines of communication, ongoing employee support is provided by our diligent internal team.

Weekly Pay & 401(k)
Our employees have fast access to their hard-earned wages and can start saving for retirement through our tax-advantaged 401(k) plan.

Employee Recognition Programs
We recognize and reward employees who go above and beyond in their roles through our Employee of the Month Program and annual Impact Awards.

Monthly Raffles
Employees who meet minimum requirements are automatically entered into our monthly raffle – we give away $1,000 worth of exciting prizes each month!

Referral Program
Through our referral program, ESS employees earn $75 for each person they refer who meets minimum requirements, with the potential to earn up to $2,700 per calendar year!

Employee Discount Program
Our Perks at Work discount shopping portal allows employees to save on a variety of everyday and big-ticket items and experiences, all while earning points to use toward future purchases.

Potential for Full-Time Hire
Committed to helping our staff achieve their career goals, we encourage our partner districts to hire ESS employees for full-time teaching roles. By building relationships with district personnel and bolstering skills through hands-on experience, our employees stand out as excellent candidates.
