School Secretary/Office Manager (Current Employee) – Compton, CA – April 8, 2016
I love the staff and students. Staff and I have a close relationship which makes it fun and manageable work place. Heavy incoming flow of traffic along with heavy phone traffic. It will be very hard and sad to leave my staff. However, the cost of living in California is too expensive and the benefits are getting to be a big stress level while the pay is still at a stand still
The staff, the staff functions and activities; the paid holidays and time off needed so I can spend with family
health care, pay rate, the hiring process and no promotional process. People should be promoted based on their work ethics, experiences, dedication and time given to a workplace/employer instead of testing for a higher position
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Compton, CA – January 25, 2016
I have worked for Compton Unified School District for a couple of years now and I have had the best experience working there. I love working with students from kinder to high school students. It is very rewarding to know that I have made some kind of impact in their lives. I've had some tough days at work when it comes to disciplining students while giving instructions but that has taught me to become a better teacher.
Off on holidays, winter break, spring break.
teaching and discipling at the same time is tough.

Maintenance Worker II / Carpentry Shop Supervisor (Current Employee) – Compton, CA – July 28, 2015
There is a great need for good leadership at this school district many key decisions are made based upon personal preference rather than skill level and work performance. Many people at this school district have been vastly mislead by the school district and by member appointed "union" too much corruption it needs to be disbanded and state run or broken up to bigger more efficiently run school districts ie. LAUSD LYNWOODUSD etc.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Compton, CA – June 8, 2015
A day at work is always productive. It is good to answer the student's questions and to help them solve their academic challenges. At the end of the day, having pointed out answers to a group of 25 to 30 students brings a good feeling. Colleagues are mostly friendly and supportive and quick to answer any question that would help to the substitute work go easier. The hardest part of the job is to ensure a good working relationship with the students and their parents. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the sparkle in the children's eyes when they understand something that gave them a challenge before.
Proximity to where I live
Difficulty to establish a long term relationship with students
High School AVID Tutor (Current Employee) – Compton, CA – January 3, 2015
A typical day as a tutor in the AVID Program is daily being in contact with children of high school age (9-12 grade). Our main focus is to help the children excel and make it to college having great skills and knowledge to help them succeed as a college student on their own. Usually both you and your co-workers are operating in the same capacity four to seven co-workers in one setting never more. The hardest part of the job is seeing the children leave, but in the same sense it is the best part of the job because they are leaving on to a great future and you had something to do with it.
No stability regarding rules and regulations and not very fair to employees and their needs. Educating the children was not top priority to managemen
Payroll Clerk 3 (Former Employee) – Compton, CA – December 4, 2014
A typical day at work was mundane, answering phones, assisting employees and non employees with various issues, not very challenging at all. I learned the ins and outs of the district as a whole and how the children are really suffering due to lack of funds or funds actually being used for the children's education. Management was awful, solely looking out for themselves and not taking under consideration the classified employees needs and well being. The hardest part of the job was not being able to advance along with not being allowed the opportunity to attend various work shops which i felt the district was not interested in the success of the office staff The most enjoyable part of the job is the people that i did meet and the relationships i built because my being an employee.
This is wher it all started 25 years ago and I would not change a thing.
Pre-School Teacher (Former Employee) – Compton, CA – September 10, 2014
Twenty-five years ago this is where I realized that teaching was for me.I started out as a aide and from there one the sky was the limit. I was a new mom at the time and this also helped me to develop not only as a teacher but a mom.
I learned never to settle but to always look for self growth and advancement.
Co-workers nice and friendly. Hardest was leaving Enjoyable part was getting the best experience a new teacher and experiences that will last forever.

Love the after school program-ASES. But unfortunately don't have any good things to say about management! They place you at other school sites without notice when youve built relationships with the children at another site.Your request for supplies may be denied!! Over ALL loved working with the children but if youre looking for supportive management-----Keep job searching Loved My Site Coordinator
