California Mini Corps, CSU Long Beach, Tutor (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA 95965 – June 19, 2017
It is a life changing job that gives many opportunities to expand in career choices. My supervisor was a bit unorganized and i had to take leadership in getting things done and communicating information to colleagues. Colleagues are new-bees so they needed a lot of guidance. Very little pay for the work that is done in that job.
Clerical Support (Current Employee) – Oroville, CA – June 10, 2017
This was intended to be a month to two month long sub job. Beginning with boxing up files and preparing new filing cabinets for the upcoming fiscal year. They ended up asking me to stay the entire fiscal year with them to assist in entering budgets and transferring funds. I became their Fiscal Office's assistant with all budget and ledger entries, inventory tracking, and record filing/keeping. While the county only needed the help during the school year, I got the summer off and returned for the entire next fiscal year.
great coworkers, long lunches, picjed my own schedule
couldn't keep up with how quickly I finished tasks; ran out of work by the end of the day
After School Tutor (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – May 18, 2017
This is one of my favorite jobs I've had the pleasure of working. Playing with the children and helping them learn was always a fantastic experience, and the staff were always easy to get along with. Excellent part-time job for those in college.
Employee (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – August 25, 2016
Fast paced work with mostly friendly folks to work with. The downside is not having breaks and support from managers on issues as they arose. Human Resources was slow at giving specifics about Insurance benefits: details so you can actually use it. The best part of the day was going home.
Mostly nice folks to work with, decent benefits.
They are exempt from giving employees mandatory breaks. Long time employee politics.
High School Tutor (Former Employee) – Gridley, CA – December 20, 2015
A typical work day kept you on your toes. Working as a tutor is a only a few hours a day. I learned to change the way things are taught for the needs of each student. Working with eneregtic kids and entusiastic coworkers is a huge part of the job. Being able to be flexible all the time and jump from plan A to plan B is a must. The kids love you and you love them. If you don't enjoy being around kids, this isn't for you. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the childrens face light up when whatever is being taught finally clicks. The hardest part of the job was finding a way to make the lesson click for each individual student.
School Activity Assistant 1 (Current Employee) – Cedarwood Elementary School, Magalia, CA – August 21, 2015
Fun to work with my students, and good contact with parent/guardians. Can be a fun work environment most of the time. Have met many good co-workers and became close friends with them. At times the site supervisor has made work feel very uncomfortable and hostile, so that along with the late afternoon hours is why I am interested in searching for another job.
You can learn a whole lot from the students, you are not the only one teaching, The other School Activity Assitant 1's are great people to work with, very easy going, they all get along well, and make great team members, Also I have the pleasure of having my own children at my work site.
The site supervisor has made the work place feel hostile, and very uncomfortable at times, For me the late afternoon hours, this could be a plus for another individual

Casual Custodian (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – May 19, 2015
I had a difficult time with my schedule from my other part time job to fit their time frame. The people there tried their best to fit me in but I only get called at the last moment and could not really work it around my other weekly posted schedule unfortunately.
Migrant Student Advisor (Current Employee) – Yuba City, CA – May 22, 2014
My typical day at work is dealing with migrant education students. Working with students in classrooms and provide extra help with homework, classwork, projects, etc. Co-workers are very nice and the management is always offering to help. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the students improve in their classes. I have learned a great deal in the last year. Working with Butte County of Education has greatly improved my knowledge working with students and contributing to the students success. I look forward to working with BCOE in the coming years.
My overall experience with butte county is not very promising.
Instructional Aide (Former Employee) – Durham, CA – January 16, 2014
A typical day at work not fun at all, did not learn anytime but negativity from but co-workers and intimidation. The job could be fun if supervisors don't intimidate you. The most enjoyable part is when taking the students out for sports. My program coordinator could have worked well with me but because of personality and the respectful way l treated co-workers, it became a problem including taking my job too seriously.
Free lunches were provided i usually bring my own lunch.
Activities Assistant/Interim Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – November 14, 2013
Curriculum management, playing with the kids, snack time and creating a love of learning were all parts of the job I loved being a part of. I learned how to be a State/Federal employee, how the grant system works, and this was my first job in an administrative position. Turned in monthly budget reports, involved in promotion of the program, and attentive to the staff.
Wilson Elementary School- College Intern (Current Employee) – Oroville, California – May 4, 2013
A typical day at work includes supervising the elementary school aged children. I have learned how to better work with children and to have more patience. My co-workers are very nice and work very hard. The hardest part of the job is having that patience needed to deal with the children. The most enjoyable part is helping them learn something they didn't know before and to watch their faces light up when the accomplished something.
