FAQ
Q
Why should I become an ESS substitute or permanent employee?
A

ESS substitute and permanent employees are a valuable resource who can make lasting impressions on students' lives. Working as a substitute teacher, a paraprofessional, or a support staff employee,  you're able to provide a needed service while expanding your network and gaining valuable on-the-job experience. Our employees are often first in line to obtain full-time jobs in our partner districts. At ESS, you're able to gain these experiences while enjoying many benefits and perks.

Q
Are there currently any open positions with ESS?
A

Yes, we have immediate openings available for permanent and substitute employees.

Q
Where can I work?
A

ESS substitute employees are eligible to work within any of our client districts. Once you have been activated in our automated system, you will have the ability to create a preferred schools list. From there you will specify the schools you prefer to work in and those you do not. ESS permanent employees are hired to work at one specific school district for the entire school year.

Q
Where are your districts?
A

We currently partner with more than 650 school districts in 21 states throughout the U.S.

Q
How do I get hired?
A

Applicants are first screened through a phone interview.  Then they are invited to a group interview.  Once they are accepted, they must confirm their credentials are up-to-date. The final step is attending an in-person ESS training class.

Q
What credentials do I need?
A

Credentialing is different in every state.  We suggest speaking directly with your ESS recruiter to find out exactly what is needed.

Q
Why do you require training?
A

Training is a pre-employment requirement for all new  ESS employees. We find that our full-day training seminar prepares our employees for the classroom and it is regarded by its attendees as interactive and engaging. We always hear our teachers have learned something new, even if they have been in the classroom for years.
