    "So very friendly, caring and easy to talk to their recruiters" I worked at EdTheory full-time for less than a yearProsI can feel that they care about me. They are transparent and honest. I ended up accepting a renewed position directly with my district during the summer. However, my communication with my recruiter was very positive. I will recommend anyone looking for a staffing company to consider EdTheory. I think their kindness and openess is refreshing. I was never afraid to be honest with them in return, and my overall... experience was highly enjoyable.ConsI wish they called me a few years ago!Advice to ManagementKeep your recruiters very kind. They are not aggresive, which I really like.

    Interview/First impressions The interview overall went really well. I interviewed with the CEO and the career specialist! They made me feel really comfortable and open during the interview. I really support the company’s mission statement and I feel that they do their upmost best in supporting their employees. They also make time to check in with their employees to make sure they are doing well and to answer any questions. They were very attentive during my training, they do their best to provide any information to ensure my success. I would recommend this company 100%

    They pay a lot I have worked with around 2-3 other staffing agencies in the past. Nothing is really new to me, but EdTheory is pretty interesting because it feels like a personal experience. Their pay for travelers is very high, and I thought I would not have my current offer topped. Good combination of great pay, pretty good benefits, support, etc. I think they match 401k by a percentage after working a few years.Pros Solid all around, pleasant surpriseCons Takes a while to find job in my area

    Friendly and Extremely Efficient Spoke to a recruiter one day, 3 days later, already interviewed and accepted a great job close to home, and for more money than other companies. Honestly, other companies offered more - not by much, but I felt very confident, secure and well taken care of terms of my communication with my recruiter.Pros Pleasing experience. Not pushy/aggressive. Customer service is consistentCons Make the time card process a little clearer.

    Super nice and honest! Love my experience! It was a joy to work with EdTheory so far! It was so much fun during the recruitment process! Weird to say, but it's true! I was able to visit their office (they reimburse me for my plan ticket there and back home) and they helped me with all the HR documents and had a supervisor sign off on my CA license paperwork. I never feel rushed or inconveniencing them. They are always willing to go out of way to help me.Pros Good at understanding their audience, good communication, good benefitsCons More training videos?

    Nice salary and benefits, nice people, nice company culture I really love EdTheory. After I contact them, they help set up interviews for me and provide training. They provide a nice salary and benefits. I was also happy that I met with them in the company in person. They provided a detailed schedule for my days there. I can feel from the details that they really care about us and try their best to offer us the best. I can feel that we will grow together as a family. I have a lot of support from them. I really enjoy working with them.

An attribute about this company that stands out to me was how fast they found me placement at a school, where I currently work now.

    Responsive and helpful support staff At EdTheory I have had nothing but positive experiences. I received the type of placement that I was looking for. Any issues were immediately handled capably by HR and other support staff. Their management style is helpful and proactive but not micromanaged and intrusive. The workplace culture seems to be focused on problem solving and making sure that their customers are served efficiently. The hardest part of the job was some initial communication issues that were ironed out immediately. The most enjoyable part of the job was being given a placement at my ability level where I could be effective and serve the client well. They were flexible and found solutions to problems. I recommend them highly.Pros Responsive support staffCons None which were serious enough to mention
