Noon Supervisor (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – August 30, 2016
A positive enjoyable place where helping children and parents are number 1 in doing the job. Learning everyday to make sure kids are taken care of and having the support of supervisor to get work done.
Kitchen Operator (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – August 9, 2016
In food services, each kitchen is managed by a kitchen operator and if meal counts demand, a nutrition assistant. Each kitchen operator and nutrition assistant is overseen by a field supervisor. Supervisors are overseen by a Manager and Director. The management has changed a little but all together is very consistent with their standards and expectations. As long as you are doing what is expected and follow procedures while being punctual and effective in your kitchen, management will not have a problem with you. Management is very good at paying attention to those who work hard and give their best at everything expected. Recognition does not fall short in this district. I have had the pleasure of being with the district for more than 5 school seasons. Most employees in food services are enjoyable to work with and are very comfortable in their surroundings, always willing to help. The hardest part of the job is that you can never make everyone happy all the time. There are times when people are just not happy no matter what you do. The most enjoyable part is to see the ones you are truly there for smile, the children and the teachers who recognize and take the time to understand what you do and who it's all about.
Food tasting, children interaction, serving the community, room for advancement, job security

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – June 5, 2016
Productive fun environment. An opportunity to give back to the community and assist students to excel in the educational environment. Also an opportunity to help prepare students for future endeavors and to adjust and overcome challenging social and economic conditions.
Many and various resources for training, and employment opportunities available for students to tap into!
School Principal (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – December 1, 2015
The admin staff at district does not have enough experience and superintendent does not have any education credentials. A perfect storm that never goes away in this school district. As many teachers and parents have said the school board does not have the majority to change it and get rid of unqualified personnel. It is a crony political hiring place.
Very fun and interesting due to working with elementary aged children.

Admin Assistant (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – June 8, 2015
I was introduced to many new tasks daily such as working in Food Nutrition or office. I learned how to write official reports, speed up my typing, filling, faxing, and so on. Enjoyed accepting or rejecting free lunch to students based on parents' income. The hardest part was to quit as it was a summer job for two months.
few breaks, worked in different departments
no benefits or future opportunity due to summer job.
Faculty (Current Employee) – Hayward Ca – August 7, 2014
If you can easily deal with gossip, drama and inefficientcy then this work environment wont get to you. The pay is decent, has job security with the district, retirement, and some other perks time and again. Most of the time the kids are behaved and each day goes by smoothly. From my experience, the places for improvement are the management handling of and individual personalities who like creating and stirring drama. Things could be more streamlined and efficient if more action was taken over coddling to the few who create stress.
job security and perks
inefficient management overall, drama and stress vs pay.
3 Grade Teacher (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – June 3, 2014
I have terrific management and fantastic colleagues who inspire me daily. A typical day at work is often not typical because I'm working with people and each of them are individuals so from one day to the next their needs and moods change. The end goal is the same however, to have learned successfully in a safe atmosphere and carried out a functional workflow system to facilitate this. Additionally, behavior management comes greatly into play here because there is often much mediation involved during the day. Kids need to be kept interested and involved in every lesson to be their most productive selves and this goes hand and hand with choosing the best actions when it comes to behavior a lot of the time. The hardest part of the job is watching a child go through pain from their home life; the best part of the job is being there for them and wearing the hat of therapist, social worker, human resources director, or whatever the moment may entail to best assist them through a rough spot so that they may walk through it and come out feeling secure.
Productive and fun workplace to socialize with other people
Tennyson Farm Intern (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – August 10, 2013
At the Hayward public library I would help inform parents and their children on the Reading Summer Program and help them fill out the applications online. I learned more about the benefits in my community. I worked with a lot of different people at a desk when signing families up for the program, and I learned how to work with different kinds of people. The hardest part of the job was talking to families who were foreign. The most enjoyable part would be encouraging children and teens to invest in reading more during the summer.
