Frequently Asked Questions:
Who employs the substitutes?
We employ the substitutes who work in your school or district so that you don’t have to handle payroll, workers comp, or unemployment claims. We also recruit new substitutes for day to day subbing as well as any specific long term needs you may have.
What type of assignments can be filled?
We fill assignments for teachers, paraprofessionals, educational assistants, and aides. We also fill positions at Early Child Care centers in specific locations. We fill day to day, short-term, long-term, and direct hire. Contact us to discuss your needs.
Where are you located?
We are located in Bloomington, MN. Staff are in the office from 6am to 6pm Monday-Thursday and 6am to 5pm on Friday during the school year in order to assist you with your substitute needs.
Do you interview substitutes?
We interview all new substitutes either by phone or in person to ensure that we send you qualified, talented, and experienced professionals. We are dedicated to recruiting and hiring substitutes that will be a good fit in the classroom.
Which schools/districts do you service?
Please refer to the Regions/Districts We Service section of our website to see the schools we serve near you.
How do you recruit substitutes?
We start with your pool of substitutes and then utilize a variety of methods to recruit additional subs, from online resources, to working with colleges, to social media. We make it easy for substitutes to work in more than one district or school as subs only need to apply once with us, and they can work for any district or school we service, based on their qualification.
Would Aesop integrate with our school’s payroll system?
Aesop has integration capabilities with most payroll systems, and will work directly with you throughout the set-up.
Some of my current substitutes may not want to use a computer for finding assignments. How do you address this issue?
There are alternate methods of finding assignments for substitutes who don’t have access to a computer or who are less willing to go online. They can call in to the Aesop automated system 24 hours a day or call us starting at 6am on weekdays to see if there are any job openings. Our coordinators also make personal phone calls to substitutes for daily subbing assignments, so not everything is automated! We provide options for using the online system while still maintaining a personal touch for substitutes.
