Productive and much hands on experience while being enjoyable
Student Ag Worker (Former Employee) – Ceres, CA – May 5, 2016
A typical day at work was working outside for 4 hours in the blazing hot sun. It was well worth the experience and what I learned. Us Student workers, learned how to plant, harvest, and care for crops. We also had to learn how to install and work with irrigation, since we had some leakage with the current irrigation system we had installed. It was very easy when it came to organization. We had a system, were certain tools went in certain areas of our shed where we also kept the tractors we used to help us with the farming. Since I had gone to school with all of my co-workers, we had a decent time enjoying the job because of each others company. I would say the hardest part of the job was trying to not have too much fun. Because quite frankly, the job was very enjoyable. And I think the most enjoyable times for me, was driving the tractor and operating it. I never operated such big machinery in my life before and that experience just felt awesome.
ASES/ Student Supervisor Assistant (Current Employee) – Ceres, CA – February 13, 2016
I work with children so I am always ready for a challenge and the unknown. If I have an issue I can go to the appropriate supervisor and get it resolved. Co-workers are great and generous, I have learned that teamwork is key and individual ability to dissolve conflicts is great as well.

Recreational Leader (Former Employee) – Ceres, CA – February 1, 2014
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 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!
great work environment, great staff, set hours: holidays, weekends off, etc.
Child Care Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ceres, CA – June 7, 2013
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. 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.
parties w/staff and students, meeting new students, making children smile and helping them succeed
being fair/equal in discipline, short staffed, overloaded with work and students
