Campus Security Officer (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – July 17, 2016
Good district to work for, great pay. Great school atmosphere.Good kids to work with. Personnel commission horrible, human resources, employee relations all horrible. No matter how many years you have with them they treat you like you are nothing. You are nothing but a number to them. They would rather hire a stranger off the streets, that they know nothing about rather than advance someone who is well liked and better qualified for the position. Overall not a bad place to work if you can manuever through all the politics an b.s.
Personnell commission, human resources. Layoffs, no advancement for older employees

This job required neatness and cleanliness. Proper sanitation and organizational skills were non-negotiable.

teacher (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – July 3, 2016
I was happy working at LBUSD for a long time. The recent 2-3 years have been different. Many of us older teachers have noticed that we were being "pushed out" which is a policy that many work places in the private sector adopt to save money. older teacher are pushed out since the salary of an older teacher is almost twice that of a brand new teacher. They do not seem to care much about experience and qualifications. In past years, teachers had to start with the easiest class and work their way up to the more complex subjects to teach within our subject matter. Currently, the higher positions are being filled with teachers who had no experience in lower levels. My suspicions were confirmed when I tried to interview for positions at 3 other schools. All three positions were filled with brand new teachers although I was the most qualified for the particular positions. So if you want a secure job where you retire with dignity and be appreciated, try another school district.
