    To help substitutes (guest employees) become more familiar with the Aesop system, there is a learning center available. This learning center is full of training materials, articles, videos and guides that are dedicated to each user. The best place to begin in the learning center is by clicking on the “Getting Started” icon right in the middle of the main page. To access the learning center or other resources, click on the links below.

    Additional Information for Substitutes (Guest Employees)


    ·         Call times: Aesop will call to offer assignments from 5:30am – 12:00pm for the current day and from 5:30pm – 10:00pm for jobs available for the next two days (unless a guest employee modifies their call times). However, you do not need to wait for a phone call for an assignment. You can view available jobs on-line up to 30 days in advance.

    ·         Building Assignments: Unless a guest employee modifies their preferred schools, Aesop will be contacting them for various assignments throughout the district.

    ·         Days you are unavailable: A guest employee can schedule a non-work day for days that they are are not available to work. This should be done via the website by clicking the Non Work Day tab. Aesop will not call you for jobs on days entered as non work days.

    Accepting Assignments:

    ·         On-line: A guest employee can view available jobs online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and pre-select assignments.

    ·         Telephone: A guest employee can call in to see what jobs are available. Also, the system will call out to them, during designated call times, when assignments become available.

    ·         Pre-arranged:    Building secretaries and employees are able to pre-arrange guest employees for their absences. When a guest employee’s assignment is prearranged, they are notified via email and a phone call. The assignment also shows up under the Scheduled Jobs tab in your Aesop profile.

    Once a guest employee has accepted an assignment, they will not see other available jobs for that day. The exception to this would be if they are only assigned for a half day. If they are assigned for a half day, Aesop will show them available for half day assignments to fill their day.

    Changes in Assignments:
    Aesop will email a guest employee if there is a change or cancellation in a scheduled assignment.

    Cancelling an Assignment:
    In the event a guest employee must cancel an assignment, they must do so no later than 2 hours prior to the scheduled reporting time. If they cannot meet this deadline, they must contact the school directly to have their name removed from the assignment. If a guest employee cancels an assignment, Aesop will not allow them to be assigned to another job, whether it is filled or not. 

    Updating Contact Information:
    Guest employees may only update their phone number in Aesop. Please contact the Human Resource Coordinator at stephanie.eichorst@cusd200.org regarding all other changes (address, name, etc.)
