    Can anyone tell me about this service? What does it do? Is it worthwhile? Thanks Cindy

    From what I've heard it does the constant searching for you instead of you having to sit and continuously hit the search button looking for assignments. Then it accepts the jobs for you based on your set preferences and it fills up your work week!

    Though it only works with Aesop, not with SEMS or SmartFindExpress.

    I don't know anything about this system. I know there are some posters here who use Jobulator, which is produced by Frontline Placement Technologies which created Aesop. Last I heard, though, it was only available for use in OH.

    It's probably created by the Aesop people. Who get's the job if 100 subs in the district use it and 50 of them have the same profile?

    No thanks.

    I actually think it was created by someone who came on this forum a few weeks back and said he was a computer programmer who had been laid off and was now subbing. In one day he posted about 10 responses, almost all bragging about how great assignmentassistant is, and hasn't been back since.

    My district uses SubFinder, so this isn't an option for me anyhow, but I take a dim view of people who spam forums like that. I also looked at the website and see that it doesn't include any information about the company or person who makes it. That would make me think twice before I shelled out my hundred bucks.

    I think they're hackers

    I think all those services except Jobulator (which we don't have in our district) are set up by people who hack into AESOP. And they're expensive! For both those reasons, I will not subscribe. I'd like to hear from those who use these services and think they're worth it and are pleased with them or those who used to and weren't satisfied.
