“TOC is great to work with"

It is easy to manage your own schedule and the system is very user friendly. TOC allows for a lot of flexibility, and the staff is great. I called about an issue I had in the classroom, and the substitute services person I spoke to was helpful and listened to ensure she got all the facts. - Connor G.

What are the steps in the hiring process?

Our hiring process is almost completely online and can be completed, start to finish, in less than one week!

1. Complete an online application by clicking on the Substitutes tab, then Apply Now. Select the appropriate application link.
2. Once your application is submitted, our Onboarding team will reach out to conduct a short phone interview.
3. We will then send instructions to complete online paperwork, mandatory professional development videos, and submit names for a reference check, if needed. We will also run a criminal background check for all candidates, paid for by TOC.
4. Once above steps are successfully completed, we will need you to complete one final government-required form in person with our office or one of our partners.
5. Start substituting! We will provide you with orientation resources as well as access to our Absence Management system so you can start viewing and accepting assignments.

How do I log back in to an application that I started in the past?

You can log into a previously started application by going to Substitutes > Apply Now and then selecting the application type that you had started in the past. Click 'Sign In' in the top right and enter in the login information that you originally created. If you need login assistance, select the 'Forgot username' or 'Forgot password' link, or contact the Teachers On Call office.

If I was a previous substitute with Teachers On Call, do I need to reapply to sub again?

If you had worked with Teachers On Call in the past, you do not need to complete a new application. Just contact our office and we will work with you to get your employment status updated.

If I have previously been employed with a school district that is transitioning to Teachers On Call, do I have to complete the entire application process?

We have an expedited hiring process just for candidates who were previously employed with our partner school districts to make the transition as seamless as possible. However, because we are a different company and must follow the appropriate privacy and hiring laws, there are some pieces that we need all prospective substitutes to complete - such as an application, government-issued paperwork, and possible trainings.

Do you hire year-round?

Yes! Our greatest need for substitutes is throughout the traditional school year, when we do the majority of our hiring. Anyone who applies during the summer months will be ready to sub when school starts up again in the fall!
