Wonderful to experience the business side of the educational arena.
Charitable Giving Coordinator (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CASeptember 7, 2014
There was really no "typical" day in my position, which in my mind was very positive. There were regularly scheduled assignments, i.e., managing the compilation of requested data for annual audits, annual budget reports, etc. However, having had multiple job duties within my position, I had many responsibilities in various areas within the Finance Department – more... that made every day a new and exciting experience.

I established a great working relationship with my co-workers, as I was also the HR Rep for the Finance Dept. of approximately 400 employees, so having had a fair and impartial demeanor with everyone, I would say that we ll worked as a positive and cohesive team. – less

Math activities
Associate Teacher (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CaliforniaAugust 14, 2014
Pros: discount tickets
Cons: not enough spaces for parking
A typical day starts at 2:15 to 5:15 pm. I sign in, and start to wake the children up from their naps. Then I serve them their snacks. After snacks we start the math activities with the children, either have already for the children or we have to create a math activity for them. The hardest part of the job is working with people that don't have the – more... same dedications that you have, and the most enjoyable part of my job is to see the smile on the children faces when they find out that they can do the things that they say they can't do. – less

Cafeteria Supervisor (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 7, 2014
Being a Cafeteria Supervisor is not a easy job but it can be fun depending on how you handle it. on a average day we prepare food, serve students, staff and parents, maintain cleanliness, stock shelves, complete paperwork but most important we serve good quality healthy meals. I manage 7-10 employees on a daily average with the help of my manager. Communication – more... is the most important issue in this job because 1 detail that is left out can mess up the whole daily operation. – less

Campus Aide (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 23, 2014
Pros: helping troubled kids make better decisions
Cons: not receiving the proper assistance when needed
the average day at work was mainly boring.
i learned that i wanted a more fullfilling job that makes a difference.
management was not fair at times, there were prefered persons to work overtime.
most of my co workers were lazy and selfish.
the hardest part of that job was dealing with uncooperative people and not having my fellow co workers assist me.

Health Care Assistant (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: the ability to practice my signing.
Cons: no raises in 7years
A typical day at work involves the distribution of medication, as well as execution of protocols among our students and staff. I have learned that at the root of all interactions comprehension is key and although i had been proficient in working with an array of children over the years with a multitude of disabilities, I was not quite prepared for an – more... entire language such as ASL. it was a tremendous challenge at the initiation of my time at this school, and now two years in, although i am still not as fluent as i would like to be i know I am more comfortable that i am doing a good job based on my willingness to learn. I have appreciated my Nurse Supervisors confidence in my skills and abilities because she has allowed me the freedom to organize our office in a way that makes is easier for our employees that are in the classrooms to navigate themselves better. – less
