Recreational Leader (Former Employee), Ceres, CA – February 1, 2014
Pros: great work environment, great staff, set hours: holidays, weekends off, etc.
Cons: part-time work, no benefits
I loved my job with CUSD. Only problem was the program I worked for was state funded by California and they continued to cut program hours because the state is broke. Hours were restricted at one point. Hardest part of the job was getting either the children or adults to cooperate. Those circumstances were situational. But this job gave me the room – more... to problem solve on my own, work with children (which I absolutely loved), work side-by-side with faculty and administration members. Great first job! – less
Child Care Supervisor (Former Employee), Ceres, CA – June 7, 2013
Pros: parties w/staff and students, meeting new students, making children smile and helping them succeed
Cons: being fair/equal in discipline, short staffed, overloaded with work and students
Throught out my time working for CUSD, I learned how to run a successful afterschool program that the kids and staff enjoyed. As well as how to communicate with my staff in a way that they respected me. All of the afterschool staff upper management, supervisors, to staff all felt like one big family, very comforting feeling when working with children. – more... The hardest part of my job was showing discipline but also being fair and fun at the same time, with staff and my students. Best part would be seeing my students and staff thrive in the environment I created. – less
