Staff Assistant (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 14, 2015
Pros: Long lunches, nice office view good pay and hardworking environment
Cons: None.
Typical day at this job was checking our commencement hot line for any question or request from parents who student's would be graduating. Going through work basket and complete anything left there from previous day. Making copies, filing, answering calls, working a data base to pull student information. This was my very 1st job so I feel like I've learned a million and one things while there. But mainly I learned how to be Microsoft efficient as well in Word and Excel, and using a data base.

A good place for me as a temporary worker, on-call as needed. I do like this.
Temporary Office Worker (TOW), (Current Employee), Downey, CAMay 29, 2015
Pros: Somewhat relaxed atmosphere.
Cons: Too much down time between jobs.
I cannot comment on most of the ratings since a temp. does not receive benefits. I have met some really great people at the county and still have contact with them. I found the jobs I was placed in at the Downey location were very easy to manipulate in. Not much training when asked to jump into a job so I had to be a quick study. I can do that. The commute was awful since it's So. CA. I worked at many of the school sites and really liked that much more. The duties and business there is faster paced.

Busy & Hard Work
Behavioral Specialist (Former Employee), Downey, CAJanuary 27, 2015
Cons: rude & uneducated individuals
The first few years it would be easy going, but then you will have to adjust to everyone you come in contact with due to various work ethics & cultures. You have individuals who need to re-educate themselves on social behavior...basically WHAT NOT TO DO during work. The people that should stay and have a job get let go or transferred to a site they dislike. But the troublemakers stay and make everyone miserable. But if you enjoy your work none of those factors will bog you down...just cautious.

Its a very challenging job to work in a juvenile probation school.
Substitute Resource Specialist Paraeducator (Current Employee), Commerce, CAOctober 2, 2014
Pros: i am able to assist the students when i can in their academic work.
Cons: very hard working with behavioral and emotional disturbed students, negative enviroment, listening to inapproiate lanuage, negative attitudes, students don't want to do work
My typical day at work is to assist these emotional disturbed students with their daily academic schoolwork. I love my coworkers. We lean on each other for support because of the students and the environment that we work in. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the students who are of mental and emotional state of mind dealing with their behavioral problems. The most enjoyable part of the job is to at least get through to one student at a time that they can succeed in their life. And try to sort out their personal issues so they can function outside and into public society again.

Issues in management negatively affected the job
CDF Servant Leader Intern (Former Employee), Calabasas, CAAugust 16, 2014
I loved working with the boys at the probation camp. It had it's difficulties, but great rewards. The major issue I had with the job was the issue surrounding our payroll. There was constantly an issue with the amount of hours they were willing to pay us for, getting our paychecks on time, and even more issues surrounding money.
