    I'm really starting to get annoyed with our online sub system. At 10pm, calls for the next day stop and all of the jobs are put online. However, it's incredibly difficult to access the website once the jobs are released.

    My browser just sits there and says it's loading, but it really doesn't do anything. I've tried at midnight, and even 2am before and I'm lucky if I can even get to the sign in page. Seriously? What if there are jobs for me, but I can't get in to accept them? Are there really THAT many subs in my district that we crash the site every single night?

    I hear that a lot of classes go without a sub for the day, I wonder how often this happens because of the website.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Could you drop a note and some business cards to each of the schools you sub in, explaining the issue and leaving your contact info?

    I figure it couldn't hurt.

    We don't have that problem with AESOP.

    It doesn't do that to me, and I have the page reload pretty quickly when I look at it.

    As far as I know though around here classes don't go without a sub unless there are more openings than subs available. But I have heard teachers talking about how if the school's allotment of sub days are used up they'll split classes and go without a sub.

    And that's just wonderful for everyone...

    I wish we used ASEOP. Right now we use a SEMS based system and obviously it's not working to well.

    Would it help to try a different web browser? Maybe your cache is getting overloaded or something.

    So thankful that I go teachers, aides, or office staff needing a sub go directly to my cell # or ask me when they see me at the school!!

    The system my districts use doesn't ever let you pick up jobs on-line. Teachers can directly request you and put you in, list you as a preferred sub and you get called a few times before anyone else does or the system calls substitutes randomly depending on your scores for each certification area between 6pm and 10pm for future assignments and starting at 5:30am the day of.

    gutterballjen, If this happened to me for even a couple nights, I'd ask personnel about it, so hopefully you've voiced your concern to them. What did they say? If they say there's nothing anyone can do, then I guess that's all the more reason for you to make yourself be known out there by handing out business cards & even flyers in all the teachers' mailboxes when you sub that day. Therefore, more will tend to request you & you can accept w/o worrying as much as trying to grab jobs along w/ everyone else.

    Good luck!

    Are you using Internet Explorer? How about trying Mozilla Firefox?

    Also does your SEMS system have a 1-800 # you can call to pick up jobs? When we used Smartfind Express we had one, Now that we have AESOP there is also one....this way you call the number and then it will tell you if there is an available job.
